Constipation is one of those topics few like to talk about. If you’ve suffered from this problem, though, you know it can be both painful and frustrating.

Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The normal length of time between bowel movements ranges widely from person to person. However, if the colon is healthy, a person will average two or more well-formed bowel movements a day.

Whole Body Vibration can aid in minimizing build up of toxins and deposits within your colon by keeping your muscles and bodily functions in regular use. Inadequate exercise or immobility can contribute to constipation.

A sedentary person’s bowels become weak and can’t do their job of propelling the wastes out of their body. The bowel then begins to deteriorate and lose its muscle tone. Whole body vibration helps get the body moving without pain or strain to the joints. It offsets the weakness and strengthens the smooth muscles of the bowel. Whole body vibration also strengthens the pelvic floor muscles and improves pelvic floor function.

When the digestive and eliminative systems of the body are in proper working order they rid the body of accumulating build-up in the colon, toxins are not absorbed from the colon into the bloodstream. Whole body vibration benefits the bowels and colon and contributes to a healthy lifestyle.
