In 2012 the FDA approved Linzess, a drug that relieves constipation and pain for some adults with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Today, Linzess is widely advertised during prime time TV because of its popularity among consumers with colon challenges. A 30-second commercial aired during prime time comes with $250,000+ price tag. That should shed some light on the demand for relief AND the profitability surrounding “wonder drugs”.
The National Digestive Disease Information Clearinghouse reports that 42 million Americans (of all ages, races and socioeconomic groups) are chronically constipated. Since most people are too embarrassed to talk about such things (unless they hit a health crisis) I’m pretty sure that there are a whole lot more constipated people walking around unreported.
Constipation is the most common GI problem in America and it’s no laughing matter. It’s more than a minor inconvenience, it is extremely detrimental for your overall health! Surely you can’t believe that it is OK to consume food on a regular basis without getting rid of it on a regular basis too! That’s just plain common sense! Medications and Metamucil are NOT the answer for your potty problems!
Barring some sort of blockage that prevents your colon from getting rid of waste, there are only two reasons that going potty is a problem for you:
1. A frequently over-looked cause of constipation is medications. It should come as no surprise that the biggest culprits are also some of the most widely prescribed including anti-depressants, narcotic pain medications, high blood pressure medications, blood thinners and medications used to “treat” high cholesterol.
2. The MOST over-looked cause of constipation is dehydration. Did you know that when you’re dehydrated the body will draw fluids from the colon (yuck) just to function? This fact should be enough to make anybody drink!
If you doubt that dehydration is the probable cause for your potty problems, think again. Here is how Linzess, the wonder pharmaceutical works:
Linaclotide (aka Linzess) is used to treat certain types of bowel problems (irritable bowel syndrome and chronic idiopathic constipation). It works by increasing fluid in your intestines which helps speed up movement of food through the gut.
So you see? If you have enough water in your body (and colon) you’ll be able to go potty without pharmaceuticals and the rest of your body won’t be functioning on fluids from your colon.
The leading colon specialist in the world, Dr. Hiromi Shinya would NEVER prescribe a pill to help you go potty. He would coach you on the importance of the proper diet for a healthy colon and he would INSIST that you drink Kangen Water® and lots of it. Water is NOT “just water”.
Instead of using Roto-Rooter techniques for your potty problems, get proactive and drink the right kind of water. Your colon (and all of the rest of you) will thank you for it!
