WATER A CURE FOR CHRONIC CONSTIPATION.
For so many years I suffered from chronic constipation. I went from one doctor to another but all the things I was advised to take only gave me temporary relief. I gave up hope until January 4th 2017 when a friend and business partner of my husband’s came visiting from South Africa. She introduced us to drinking of 4glasses hot water 30minutes before bedtime and immediately, upon waking up in the morning. Her reasons were that it will help dissolve most of the fats and oil we consumed during the day to enable easy transportation of nutrients in the body and also for free bowel movement.
4 glasses of water? I shouted, how on earth am I going do that? I asked.’ Well you have to try. It is for your own good’. She replied.
Well I gave it a shot, it was not really easy but I did it and Wow! it worked like magic.
When I drank the hot water, the first and second day nothing happened but on the third day, the wonders of taking hot water began to manifest. My digestive system readjusted and I began to pass stool regularly. Today my chronic constipation is a thing of history.
If you suffer from this condition, try this out and you will be the better for it.
IT REALLY WORKS. JUST GIVE IT A SHOT!
ALL THE BEST!
