It is best to use fresh organic apples when eating apples as a snack since you will not know what pesticides were used in growing apples. If apples are not organic, it is better to peel apple before eating.
Using baked apples also helps to clear constipation.
Eat one baked apple at night, right before bedtime, and one just upon rising. Do this until you constipation is cleared.
In his book, John Heinerman, Heinerman’s Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs, describes how to bake apples:
“Cut apples in half and clear out centers. Add chopped dates to center. Pour some cranberry juice over dates and apples. Then sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top. You can pour cranberry juice on some of apples and see if you like taste after they are cooked. Cook apples for 46-60 min at 375-400 C.”
Dried apple slices are also a good source of fiber. However, when slices are dehydrated most nutrients are lost but fiber is retained. Sulfur dioxide is typically used to dry apple slices and this can cause allergic or asthmatic reactions in some people. I do not recommend using dried apple slices in place of fresh organic apples.
Just Apples and Mineral Water
Just after waking, eat two unpeeled apples, chew well, and then drink 8 oz of water that has two drops of Alkalife. Or, you can use any other mineral additive or supplement you use.
This combination of apples and activated mineral water will stimulate your colon to become less sluggish and to move fecal matter out of rectum.
I find Alkalife on e-Bay. This product cost $29.00 on Internet, but I have bought it for $17.00 on e-Bay.
Using fruits to relieve or clear constipation is a powerful natural remedy. Eat fruits every day and between meals and you will relieve your constipation.
Look for other articles that will tell about other fruits to relieve constipation.
