Q: My son recently had a large, flat polyp that was on a stem removed from his colon, after suffering severe constipation and pain from this condition. He also has an elongated colon.

Can you tell me what helps to manage an elongated colon and prevent constipation? Thank you.


A: It is extremely important to keep the bowels regular so that toxins do not re-accumulate in the bowels to play a role in the reformation of polyps. 

A diet high in fiber and low in saturated fats is vital. If the diet does not contain much in the way of fiber, add it gradually.  Also, the use of raw oils and healthy servings of green vegetables will help detoxify the body and promote regular elimination without straining the bowels.

The healthy oils to use in moderation include avocado, olive and canola oil. These beneficial oils help to moisturize and lubricate the intestinal tract and make it easier to pass motions.

Lastly, try some qi gong massage, by gently rubbing the abdomen in clockwise pattern for 5 minutes several times a day will help increase circulation to the intestinal tract to promote healthier tissue.
