Today I'm going to discuss a compound produced from the bark of a tree that is great for people who have problems with constipation. This compound is called cascara sagrada, which is a natural laxative (colon cleanse).
Cascara sagrada is a good natural remedy, and I'm going to discuss 5 natural benefits today. It comes from a tree that is very common in the western US. It has a long history of being used as a laxative, and even with native American tribes.
The FDA in 2002 banned the use of Cascara sagrada in laxative products however the ban was lifted so you can buy it now.
Cascara Sagrada Benefits:
1. It is a great natural laxative. 60M people in the US suffer from constipation. You can usually solve the problem by improving your diet, however if you do need that digestive refresh, then it can help to use this bark for a few days or a few weeks.
2. Cascara sagrada can help with hemorrhoids.
3. It has a great anti-septic effect, killing bad bacterias in the body. It also has anti fungal action against candida.
4. It has very good anti-inflammatory compounds in it. There is a lot of inflammation in the average person's gut so this can be helpful.
5. Cascara sagrada can help with your immune function.

In 1980 my baby and I almost died because I took this herb. A close friend had a health food store and a big, famous Mormon doctor has a line of herbs for various health purposes like colon cleansing. She and I both were pregnant. Both of us took Cascara Sagrada, which HAD NO WARNINGS ON THE BOTTLES. Both our babies began passing meconium (poop) into their waters, which soon broke showing the telltale yellow of a baby in stress. We had many hours of induced labor followed by emergency caesarean sections. To protect the baby, I didn't have enough anesthesia and so woke up with the agony of the cut. I heard them exclaim over the baby, who was ok....then blissfully received more drip and went out for the long repair stitching. My friend had the exact delivery, minus waking up, thank God.
My child, Theresa, may have been affected for life with gut leakage. She had asthma and b vitamin issues. Then at 9 she died at home with a mysterious breathing problem. She was nothing but pure joy and sweetness and I know she's waiting in Heaven for us. But I will always wonder if her prenatal stress contributed to her death.
I'm telling you...this herb is very dangerous....there is no substitute for eating simple, wholesome food and water and fresh air...if needed use a simple suppository. Remember the joke on M*A*S*H when Margaret went to Seoul to a seminar called, "Suppositories, the Magic Bullet of Health". I love the camomile tea and old harmless basics.... but there are strong herbs that are very dangerous. Please...be careful.
Hey Chris I’ve straightened up my diet lotta veggies greens but you know I still have chronic constipation can I take this for long-term or should I just take it like a short term and maybe go back-and-forth after a few days
i think almost everyone has constipation without knowing
processing starch and meat
u can see if someone doesnt have constipation - their spine/posture is (almost unnaturally looking) straight and they r alert

can you share your opinion on effect of sugar intake on candida bacteria found in the gut, because sugar is good for metabolism, but is it bad for the gut ?
It's a good temporary option but not for long term.A good diet consisting of veggies,tubers,not too much meat avoid dairy and grains+Not eating after 18:00 helped me and now it's like a clock.I don't eat for 14 hours,sort of a fast but reversed cause most people on interminent fasting stuff themselves late at night which I don't believe to be a smart thing to do as digestive system slows down at night and food stays longer.
I have tried root veges like potatoes, sweet potatoes, taro etc. Avoid tomatoes (acidic, and its compounds can wreak havoc in the tract)and garlic (overly anti-biotic, kills the good bacteria, which aid digestion, as well!), especially the latter. Haemorhoids sufferers avoid these two.! These simply cooked veges in a balanced diet is best. Also I don't take milk often, and if I do boil it in Milo/Ovaltine or chocolate drink, just to get some calcium.
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
