Want Regular Bowel Movements? Eat Organic

Dr. Karlo Mauro, N.D.

Some people may think GMO foods would have nothing to do with constipation. Maybe so. Maybe not. Point is... we don't know! Hardly any testing has been done on these new life forms.

In fact, one of the few tests done on genetically modified potatoes produced cancerours tumours in rats.

Interesting, when you consider how many woman and men find potatoes upset their digestive tract. Many of my patients know that if they eat potatoes, they'll end up constipated.

Of course, if you read Constipation Relief Strategy #2 in my volume, 37 Constipation Relief Strategies for Women, potatoes won't bother you as much if you prepare them in a way that doesn't increase their drying effect. If you love french fires, try this instead:


1. Slice some potatoes up into six wedges.

2. Melt organic butter or coconut butter on baking pan or dish (preferably glass). Note: Most other vegetable/nut based oils become toxic at high heat.

4. Add unrefined sea salt and any other spices you care for (e.g., cayenne pepper or chili pepper will give the potatoes a nice kick).

5. Add the potato wedges to the pan and coat in the butter, salt and spices.

6. Now position the wedges so they are not touching.

7. Bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 45-60 minutes.

They'll come out crispy but not nearly as drying as deep fried foods. The insides are nice and moist.

BUT.... this is important. Use organic potatoes. Not commercial potatoes. Even if it's from your local farmer's market. Chances are the seed potatoes were genetically modified.

I don't want you to freak out about GMO foods. And if you can't afford to buy all organic, at least make a point of buying...

* organic potatoes
* organic soy products
* organic corn
* organic canola oil
* organic brown rice
* organic dairy (or buy goat's milk)

Non-organic sources of these foods are almost always genetically modified.

"Rice, genetically engineered to contain pharmaceutical drugs, is being grown in test fields and may be approved for commercial production."

Unbelievable! Especially considering they've already tried introducing human liver genes into the mix also.

So switch to organic with those specific foods at least. And make sure it's certified organic.

Some of the above foods may be causing you to have irregular bowel movements. Switching to their "original" versions may help rectify your digestion tract issues.

Yours in Natural Health,
