STEPS OF THE EXERCISE:
Make a long narrow o.
Pull only the upper lip behind the teeth.
Put your palm on your forehead.
Activate the muscles along your nose - as if something stinks.
With the other hand, you create weights: the middle finger and index finger press on the muscles along the nose.
One of the main functions of the colon is the absorption of water and other key nutrients from waste material and their recycling. The large intestine is also much more richly populated with microorganisms than the small intestine. It is a bacterial flora that ferments on non-absorbed food. It is about 1.6 m long in an adult. Constipation or diarrhea can be a serious problem for a person and his health. Especially if we have constipation that lasts for years, it can cause more serious illnesses and problems in the body that we wouldn’t even associate with the colon.
Common causes of constipation:
low-fiber diet, dehydration, particularly diets high in meat, milk, or cheese; lack of exercise, delaying the impulse to have a bowel movement, travel or other changes in routine, certain medications,pregnancy.
Underlying medical problems that can bring on constipation:
stroke, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes; problems with the colon or rectum, including intestinal obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or diverticulosis; overuse or misuse of laxatives; hormonal problems, underactive thyroid gland
What to do when we have constipation
Drink 1.5 to 2 liters of unsweetened liquids such as water every day. Limit your consumption of alcohol and caffeinated beverages, which cause dehydration. Add fiber-rich food to your diet: raw fruits and vegetables, beans, prunes or cereal bran. Limit low-fiber food: processed foods, meat, milk, and cheese.
Strive for daily moderate exercise - 30 minutes a day at least five times a week.
Don't hold back the need to have a bowel movement. The longer you wait, the harder your stool can become.
If necessary, add nutritional supplements to your diet. Remember to drink plenty of fluids because fluids help fiber work more efficiently.
Never use laxatives for more than two weeks without talking to your doctor. Your body can become dependent on them for the proper functioning of the colon.
Consider adding probiotics to your diet, such as those found in yogurt and kefir with live active cultures.
Nasolabile folds and elemnt metal are associated with the large intestine and the ability to set boundaries. In the last part of the digestive tract, the intestines squeeze out the last important substances for the body. This is where the final cut is made of what the body takes and retains and what it releases because it is not beneficial and good for us (toxins). Similarly, in everyday life, we make countless small or large decisions about what we will do, accept, take, and what we will not. When we lack that determination and clarity, compromise often occurs. Sometimes we are not even aware of it. With such an attitude towards ourselves, we lose the necessary strength and energy for everyday life, and at the same time we can remain full of wrong, harmful and negative thoughts, ideas and beliefs. Because of compromises, we lose our sense of our sincere desires, cling to the wrong people and environments, and often do not know how to stand up for ourselves in situations or simply express our opinion. This can hurt us and thus drain our life force. Then we start shutting ourselves in and avoiding people and environments that could potentially hurt or exhaust us. We have less and less energy, less interest in socializing and connecting, and we are slowly becoming lonely. From here, grief has an open path to anchor itself deeply, and we don’t even know why and how we became so depressed and listless. This is why we also call nasolabial folds lines of despair, as they indicate a weight we have not been able to cope with or let go of.
By writing, we elevate self-awareness.
It is good to find things that make us happy and bountiful. Contact with nature is highly recommended, as it always fills a person. Life is not a thorny path, full of suffering and tears. Life is a path full of challenges, where we are able to transform pain and tears into joy, tears of happiness and peace. At that time, deep self-respect and respect for the environment and all living things are anchored in us. That is when unconditional love can enter us.
Gratitude exercises that we write down every night before bed are recommended - these should be small things that everyone can find in their lives. Introduce mirror work into your routine as well: look in the mirror and tell yourself what you like about yourself, what you are proud of in your life, and what you forgive yourself for. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself as you would talk to your best friend that you love sincerely.
