Colon and bowel expert Jini Patel Thompson shares her innovative and effective natural remedies for constipation, and for the troublesome conditions that often accompany constipation, such as hemorrhoids, rectal or anal stricture, or rectal and anal fissures.
Jini’s emphasis is on natural, holistic healing to address the root cause of a symptom, rather than merely suppressing it. The goal of holistic healing is not to take herbal supplements to suppress your symptoms (the same way drugs do), but rather to heal the imbalance or dis-ease in your body that is causing the constipation.
Were you aware that long-term laxative use trains your colon’s peristaltic mechanism (rhythmic contractions of the intestinal wall) to switch off, and can also damage bowel nerves, muscle and tissues? Or that, if medication is contributing to your constipation problem, fiber supplements may actually make the problem worse, rather than helping?
Did you know there are actually two different types of constipation - peristaltic and stenosis - and that the best constipation treatment for you depends upon which type of constipation you have?
This innovative and informative book helps you identify the components and causes behind your constipation (medications, dehydration, poor diet, stress, anal stenosis, trauma, mineral and nutrient deficiency, unhealthy gut flora, poor bowel habits, lack of peristaltic muscle tone etc.), and then shows you exactly what to do to balance and heal your unique body.
Here are just some of the natural treatments detailed in this book:
- Herbal colon cleansing
- Enema colon flushing
- Therapeutic probiotics and Probiotic Retention Enema
- Wild oregano oil to clear parasites, yeast, fungus, etc.
- Spastic Colon Factors and Treatment
- Magnesium/Potassium to relax the anal sphincter muscles
- Colonic massage to help your colon have a bowel movement (by assisting peristalsis)
- Herb & fiber mixture to soften and bulk stools
- Tried-and-tested natural remedies for anal fissures or hemorrhoids
- The mind/body connection with constipation; how your stress and emotions influence biochemical responses in your gut that can slow down (or speed up) gut motility and peristalsis (the rhythmic, muscular contractions of your intestines)
- Dietary Guidelines - using food to prevent constipation and keep your bowel healthy
If you've been suffering from daily discomfort due to constipation, it's understandable that you're in a hurry to have it go away - and the sooner, the better! And that's what Listen To Your Colon shows you how to do. Not only will you get quick relief, but you can also heal the long-term, underlying causes of your constipation.

In this important book, digestive disease expert Jini Patel Thompson gives you tested, successful remedies for both short-term relief (when ya gotta go!) and the long-term resolution of chronic constipation. Even if you've been living with constipation for what seems like forever, it is certainly possible to heal it, and Listen To Your Colon can show you how.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Chapter One - Your Journey to Health
The first chapter of Listen to Your Colon teaches you how to use herbal supplements as part of a holistic healing journey, addressing the root cause of a symptom rather than suppressing it. You’ll learn how to introduce supplements, and how to make sure your supplements meet the claims made on their label (up to 80% of them don’t). This chapter also offers valuable information on what to do if you’re not seeing the desired results.
Chapter Two - Constipation Factors and Treatment
This chapter will help you determine the cause or causes of your constipation, and what type of constipation you suffer from (peristaltic or stenosis). Jini underlines the importance of identifying and reducing stress to treat constipation, and teaches you how to use the mind/body connection to communicate with your colon in order to “negotiate” changes in your bowel habits. This chapter introduces several effective constipation treatments, including wild oregano oil, colonic massage, enemas, probiotics, and natural substances like psyllium, magnesium and potassium. Jini also explains how to treat hemorrhoids, strictures and fissures, and how to adapt all of these protocols to treat children.
Chapter Three - Spastic Colon Factors and Treatment
Spastic colon is when your colon suffers from random attacks of diarrhea, constipation and spasming. This chapter examines the cause(s) of spastic colon, and introduces a number of effective natural treatments for adults and children, depending on your age and your symptoms. These treatments include colonic massage, stress reduction, and supplements like probiotics, psyllium seed, bentonite clay, and peppermint oil.
Chapter Four - Dietary Guidelines
Jini explains the effect diet can have on your colon. She identifies which foods are known to cause or worsen constipation, which foods can alleviate it, and the two best dietary changes you can make to relieve constipation. She describes the importance and use of a food diary to discover how to customize your diet to your body’s tolerances. Other topics include the role of gluten sensitivity (celiac disease) in constipation, diarrhea, and bowel inflammation; soluble vs insoluble fiber, and the importance of “good fats” in your diet. The chapter closes with an ongoing maintenance diet to ensure good bowel health for the entire family.
Chapter Five - Why You Should Avoid Pharmaceutical Drugs
Jini sees symptoms as messages, and points out that while taking a drug may suppress a symptom and give you temporary relief, you are left with an even bigger problem when the symptom eventually returns (as you have not identified and healed the root cause). You then not only have to deal with the symptom, but also with the damage done to your body by the drug, and with detoxifying from the drug. Learn about the drugs most commonly prescribed to treat chronic constipation, and their possible side effects. Jini coaches you in how to look beyond the symptom or symptoms to learn what message your body is trying to send you.
Chapter Six - Other Strategies and Resources
Listen to Your Colon concludes with a Quick-Action Treatment to help provide you immediate relief from your constipation. Jini also discusses the pros and cons of several other commonly used natural laxatives, including chlorophyll, dandelion leaves, and senna. In closing, Jini provides her readers with a number of resources for further help and information.
If you've been suffering from daily discomfort due to constipation, it's understandable that you're in a hurry to have it go away - and the faster, the better! The good news is that even if you've been living with constipation (for what seems like forever), it is possible to heal it completely.
For those of you who already know me, you know that my emphasis is on natural, holistic healing - which addresses the root cause of a symptom, rather than merely suppressing it. And that's what I show you how to do in this book, Listen To Your Colon, so that you can get not just quick, symptomatic relief, but also heal the long-term, underlying cause of your chronic constipation.
The goal of holistic healing is not to take herbal supplements just to suppress your symptoms (the same way drugs do), but rather to heal the imbalance or dis-ease in your body that is causing the constipation.
For long-term healing, you have to look at the totality of the variables that contribute to constipation, and then make the necessary changes in each area: Diet, stress and emotional factors, mineral deficiency, drug use, nutrient deficiency and gut microflora.
