Constipation is the pits.

Of course, well-meaning people tell you to drink plenty of fluids, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet. But sometimes we still need an extra “push.”

Now, chronic constipation is another issue altogether, and can be a result of thyroid issues, food allergies or a bacterial imbalance in your gut. Best to address this with a holistic health care provider who can help you get to the root of issue.

But, today, I want to share with you a simple and inexpensive remedy for the occasional spell of constipation that’s worked for me and many others.

Two pears a day.

Yep, that’s it.

Organic is best. You can eat them raw. You can cook them. Or you can enjoy them in my Protein Pear Pudding. Doesn’t really matter how you eat them just as long as you fit in two a day.

How about YOU? What natural remedy helps you with the occasional constipation?
