Natural Remedies for Healing Constipation

by Stephanie Relfe B.Sc. (Sydney)

In this article I will first give you a quick tip that may help your constipation right now. And then I will explain how I have helped many people to fully heal constipation with kinesiology. Followed by a few other tips.

Here’s the quick tip for constipation: Put your feet on a step stool when you sit on the toilet. Use a stool with a higher, rather than a lower, step. This is to lift up your legs and get you as close to a squatting position as possible. This straightens the anal canal so that the feces can come out much more easily, the way that nature intended. For more information on this, see my article “Squat, Don’t Sit“. Do this for children as well as yourself. You should do this even if you are NOT constipated.

In the years that I have worked as a kinesiologist, I have done natural healing for dozens of people who suffered from constipation. I was able to help every one of them to heal their constipation, provided they did what I said, which was virtually all of them. Some of these people had been constipated for years.

There was one woman who I told (as I tell all my clients) to give up eating microwaved food. When I saw her for the second session of kinesiology, muscle testing told me that she was out of balance due to eating microwaved food. I couldn’t understand why her body was telling me that – until she told me that she HAD eaten microwaved food, ‘because she wanted to”. I told her that I couldn’t help her, and we ended the session.

Richard Schulze found by studying people, who lived closer to nature than we do, that it is natural to have 2-3 bowel movements a day. Wild animals do not suffer from constipation, because they do not do any of the dozens of unnatural things that we do. However, our society is so far removed from what nature intended, that I have even had clients who told me that when they went to their doctor and said that they only had a bowel movement once every 5-7 days, that the doctor told them that that was normal!

In that case, ‘normal’ must mean ‘average’. It does not mean that it is supposed to be that way.That simply shows that the average person has a body that is in a lot of trouble these days. And it probably lets you know how often that that doctor has a bowel movement. That is called “denial”. That doctor did not face the fact that his body was way out of balance, and that he had no control over his own health. Therefore he somehow found a way to prove to himself that everything was as it should be.

Having a good kinesiologist work on you is an amazing experience. The kinesiologist will ask the client to straighten their arm. The kinesiologist will then say “hold” and push down on the arm. Sometimes the arm will stay in the same position, but sometimes, depending on what the kinesiologist says or does, NO MATTER HOW STRONG THAT PERSON IS, they will not be able to hold up their arm. This is called muscle testing. (If you want to see some examples of muscle testing now, please view the trailer of my DVD Perfect Health with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing and then come back to this article). The session continues with the kinesiologist testing a number of different movements.

How does muscle testing work? The brain is an unbelievably powerful computer. If the body is working as it should be, the brain sends electrical signals to every one of the 600+ muscles in the body, and receives signals back again, continually. When this happens, we say that the body is “in balance”.

But what happens when we do something to the body that the body doesn’t like, like eat something that is bad for it, or have an emotional upset? Something has to give. Just like when the wiring in a house is overloaded, a fuse in the fuse box will blow. That is because it’s better to blow a fuse than to shut the whole lot down. The body would also rather ‘blow a fuse’ than ‘shut the whole lot down’. So the body ‘looks around’ and decides which of the 600+ muscles in the body will no longer receive signals correctly from the brain. We say that that muscle is ‘out of balance”. That muscle will test weak when the kinesiologist tests it. We say that the muscle has ‘unlocked’.

Sometimes the muscles that unlock are the Fascia Lata muscles or the Quadriceps muscles in the legs. Now, remember that of course the body is not made of isolated parts. The whole body works as one functioning unit. Kinesiologists and other natural healers, especially people who study Chinese medicine, know that there are all kinds of energetic relationships in the body. For example, the Fascia Lata muscles are related to the Large Intestine meridian and the Quadriceps muscles are related to the Small Intestine meridian. A meridian is a pathway of energy. Some meridians are shown in the following diagram, from “Perfect Heatlh with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing“.


So, one cause of constipation could be that the Fascia Lata or Quadriceps muscles are out of balance, which means that there is a blockage in the energy related to the Large Intestine or Small Intestine. However, constipation usually has a number of causes. After the kinesiologist rebalances the main muscles in the body, the body will function more efficiently. But if the person suffers from constipation, it is highly likely that there is an imbalance in the muscles of the Ileocecal Valve.

The Ileocecal valve is made of two sets of muscles that act like a gate between the small and large intestine. When these muscles are out of balance, the valve may stay shut more often than it should. When this happens, the food in the Small Intestine cannot get into the Large Intestine, and so starts to rot. This causes toxins to flood back through the system. If the valve is stuck open more often than it should, rotten food in the Large Intestine can flood back into the Small Intestine, again causing a lot of toxins to be where they should not be.


In either case, this can cause the body to suffer from a lot of symptoms, including:


  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Acne
  • Red eyes
  • Black under the eyes
  • Bloated belly
  • Tiredness
  • Sore back
  • Sore neck
  • Headaches and / or migraines
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Cold sores
  • Appendicitis (in the case of the Ileocecal valve)
  • Hemorrhoids (in the case of the Houston folds)
  • In extreme cases, bowel cancer.

Applied Kinesiology has a test and a correction for the Ileocecal Valve. I teach this in my DVD training series Perfect Health with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing. This DVD series teaches all the main corrections which I found that I needed to do to my clients to help them to heal themselves of constipation. And to give them the knowledge of what they needed to do to keep constipation healed. I am so sure that these techniques will work for you, that I am offering a full 60 day money back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied (less cost of shipping).

Another cause of constipation for a number of people is that they have one, two or three energetic system out of balance called the “Centering” systems. The muscle test for Centering is simple. The kinesiologist gives a gentle ‘thump’ to the upper arm on one side, and then muscle tests the arm on the other side of the person’s body. If the person’s Centering is out of balance, that gentle thump will be more stress than the body can handle, and the person will NOT be able to hold their arm straight when the Kinesiologist tests it!!! This is an amazing experience to the person. Over 50% of my clients had their Centering out of balance.

One of the Centering systems is called the Cloacals. When the Cloacals are out of balance, nearly all of the body’s functions will not be operating at full efficiency. Again, this prevents the body from healing itself of constipation.

A person with their Centering systems out of balance sometimes feels like a three-legged table. It takes almost no stress to put them out of balance. Once the person’s Centering systems are put back in balance, the person feels like a four legged table. They are fully back in balance and the body finds it much easier to heal itself of any problems. The Centering corrections are also taught in my DVD series.

It is very hard to heal something properly without knowing the cause of what caused the problem in the first place. When I say that constipation could be caused by the Small Intestine and Large Intestine meridians are out of balance, or the Ileocecal Valve or Centering systems out of balance, the next question should be, what made them go out of balance?

Muscle testing can identify what caused different muscles and energy systems to go out of balance. Again, I teach a very efficient way of doing this in my DVD series. Generally, people who suffer from constipation need to make improvements in their diet, such as:

  • Drink more good water. Reverse osmosis or spring water is best.
  • Avoid all GMOs, either first or second hand.
  • Eat more raw fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds. Especially green leafy vegetables.
  • Not eat processed foods, such as wheat flour (white flour) and vegetable oil.
  • Not eat caffeine in any form, since that puts the body into stress.

For more information on diet, please see my article “A secret of anti-aging“. If you are serious about healing yourself for now and the rest of your life, read my book You’re not Fat, You’re Toxic, even if you are skinny. It’s a detailed manual that will give you a full program that cannot be covered in just one article.

In addition, certain herbs can help. Doing a herbal colon cleanse is a good idea for most people, even if they are not constipated.

However, not all constipation is caused just by diet. In some cases, I found that my clients Ileocecal Valve was out of balance because of emotional stress from the past. The Ileocecal Valve muscles seem to be more sensitive to negative emotions than other muscles in the body. Using muscle testing I was able to identify what particular stress caused the imbalance. And then I did a technique called “Emotional Stress Release” to remove that stress from the person’s brain. By doing that, the Ileocecal Valve was then able to stay in balance. You learn these techniques in the DVD series as well.

If you suffer from constipation, please obtain my DVD Training Series Perfect Health with Kinesiology & Muscle Testing. You will need a partner to study this with you, so they can work on you and you can work on them. If there is no one among friends or family who will do this with you, I suggest you ask natural health practitioners or Licensed Massage Therapists in your area, or put up a notice at a health food store. Naturally, arrange to meet first at a public place, such as the library. I am so sure that you will be truly amazed at the results you get, that I offer a full 60 day money back guarantee.
