  • DIETARY FIBER & BOWEL FUNCTION

    INTRODUCTION - CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL APPROACH

    Patients with colorectal or anorectal problems are generally unaware of how their own bowel habits may vary from normal. Since their problems usually stem from childhood, representing lifelong habits, and since they have no standards for comparison, most patients assume that their function is normal.

    Most patients who develop colon cancer, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, fistula and fissure have had a lifelong history of difficulty with their bowels. In most instances, they suffer from chronic habitual constipation.

    The usual cause of chronic constipation is a lack of adequate dietary fiber. Dietary fiber is generally obtained from plant foods, and consists of that portion of the plant which is not digested by the GI tract. While the sugars, starches and vitamins are broken down into nutrients and are absorbed by our intestines, the cell walls are not digested and go on to form an important component of the stool, the bulk or roughage. An example of dietary fiber is cellulose, and a food which is high in fiber is wheat bran.

    Correcting the fiber inadequacy in one's diet will help one to achieve normal bowel movements and normal bowel habits. If damage has taken place, as in the development of diverticulitis, the adjustment of one's dietary fiber intake may prevent further deterioration of the damage over time. The decision as to how much fiber to use in the face of pre-existing conditions should be made in consultation with your health care provider.

    For the bowels to work properly, a lifelong daily intake of 25 to 30 grams, or about one ounce of dietary fiber daily, is required. After the digestion of all proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and the absorption of water and other nutrients in the small intestine, the colon (the last five feet of the intestine) receives approximately one pint of liquid stool together with the undigested fiber.

    Under normal circumstances, the colon gradually removes the remaining water, and forms a shaped stool, which moves toward the rectum as a result of gentle pressure waves. In people who eat too little of fiber-containing foods, the stool becomes hard, dry and small. Whereas the soft, bulky stool can move easily along the passage of the colon, the hard, dry stool sticks to the dry wall of the colon and requires that the colon develop high-pressure waves to be moved. Years pass, and the colon is no longer capable of generating such high pressure waves. The colon now requires assistance to push along the hard, dry stool, and the abdominal muscles begin to contribute the necessary force. This we call "straining." The straining produces pressure on all of the abdominal wall, forcing the development of hernias, varicose veins (due to pressure on the long veins of the legs), hiatus hernia (upward pressure forcing the stomach into the chest), diverticulitis and diverticulosis (weakening and infection of the colon wall), hemorrhoids, anal fissures and fistulae. Colorectal cancers may also be more common in patients with lifelong habit constipation. This may be due to the concentrated exposure of carcinogens to the colonic surface, as a result of the hard dry stool and its slow movement or evacuation.

    NORMAL BOWEL HABITS

    It is normal for one to have one or two soft, formed easily passed bowel movements a day, without any effort or straining. The British term is a "bowel action," and literally one should be able to evacuate promptly and easily. This is not the case for most Americans, some of whom have the best "bathroom libraries" in the world, and some of whom actually reserve this time for reading the daily newspaper-cover to cover. The habit of reading in the bathroom is simply a reflection of inadequate function.

    It is not normal to miss moving one's bowels on any given day. It is not normal to solve the problem by taking a laxative. If your bowels move daily, but with difficulty or straining, if your stool is dry or hard, or if you do not move your bowels daily, you need to adjust your diet for the right amount of fiber intake.

    NORMAL PHYSIOLOGY

    When there is adequate fiber in the diet, the fiber (viewed as millions of tiny water attracting particles) mixes with the stool. Each particle soaks up available liquid, and enlarges into a minute gel bead. These particles give the stool size shape and moisture, making it easy for the colon to move along easily.

    To work properly two other circumstances must also be right; adequate water for absorption, and adequate lubrication of the colon lining. We require 8 to 10 (8 or 10 ounce) large glasses of water daily. Water can be any liquid, whether it is tea, coffee, milk, fruit juices, soft drinks, or other beverages that agree with you. Milk products may be particularly gassy, due to the fermentation of milk sugar, i.e., lactose, in the colon.

    In order to lubricate the passage, the colon manufactures mucous. If the colon is dry, i.e., one has too little mucous, or drinks too little water, the stool will be hard and dry and will stick to the colon requiring that one strain to eliminate.

    A PROPER DIET

    A proper diet is conscious of calories, balanced nutrition, vitamins, avoidance of dangerous foods such as saturated fats, and attention to all sources of fiber.

    A typical diet of meats, dairy products, breads made from enriched or refined flours, and other starches such as potatoes, pasta and rice are all very low in fiber.

    THE TYPICAL AMERICAN DIET

    BREAKFAST

    Cereal (Corn flakes)
    Coffee
    Juice
    Eggs
    Toast (White)
    Bagel
    Meat

    LUNCH

    Sandwich
    (Meat, Chicken, Tuna)
    White bread
    Pizza
    Hamburger
    French fries


    DINNER

    Fish or Chicken
    Starch
    Vegetable (Corn)





    Virtually all such meals contain a minimum of fiber, leading to a daily total of 5 to 8 grams.


    AN OPTIMAL FIBER CONTAINING DIET

    BREAKFAST

    4 to 5 oz. Chicken or Fish
    Salad


    Learning how to change one's eating habits takes deliberate work over many months. When shopping, one must be familiar with the calorie and fiber content of all foods, and plan and purchase with menus in mind. One must read the content information on the package. This process can take six or more months to master.

    FIBER SUPPLEMENTS & SUBSTITUTES

    While one is learning to eat properly, or if one is "too old" or "too set in their ways" to make a major change, one can substitute commercial sources of fiber in one's diet. Psyllium seeds are ground up water absorbing particles which substitute for dietary fiber. Products such as Metamucil, Hydrocil, Konsyl, etc. or other products such as Citrucel (methylcellulose) are perfectly good substitute sources of fiber. One tablespoon a day provides 15 grams of the recommended 25 to 30 grams daily. Most people take such products at night, generally after completing one's meal. No matter what the label says, these products are not laxatives, but fiber substitutes. Taking them daily provides the fiber which allows the bowels to function normally. Taking them only when one is constipated means that one does not understand their proper role and use.

    Mineral oil is the best and the most consistent lubricant. Colace, a pill, is easier to take or swallow, however, its result is more erratic. Mineral oil, one tablespoon by mouth daily, from the refrigerator will serve as an excellent lubricant. Lubrication should be considered if one is taking the prescribed amounts of fiber and water, and one is still straining, or the stool remains hard.

    Some people, when they hear of the importance of fiber in their diet, overdo the fiber intake. This can be harmful too. Fiber, especially in the absence of adequate water intake, can be so binding, as to cause severe constipation. If that happens, enemas and mineral oil may be needed to eliminate the hard, dry impassible stool before resuming a normal schedule. An occasional fiber abuser will have diarrhea.

    Remember, there is a necessary balance between fiber content of the diet, water intake and lubrication. Give each one some thought before figuring that reasonable bowel function is a hopeless pursuit. Do not expect immediate or day-by-day results. If you have had sluggish bowels and constipation all of your life, expect to see the effects of your new fiber intake over the weeks that follow. All changes will be gradual, and any adjustments that you make will require days to weeks before the results may be noticeable.

    LAXATIVE ABUSE

    Some people have had chronic habit constipation for as long as they can remember. It is possible that they were born with a sluggish bowel that does not function easily. Furthermore, if they were not taught to eat properly at a young age, their underlying problem may be aggravated by a diet that lacks the correct amount of fiber.

    To people who are not aware of fiber's importance, years may have been spent experimenting with laxatives or natural substances that act as laxatives obtained through health food stores, such as powders, teas and other supplements.

    Although an occasional use of a laxative for temporary constipation relief will not cause long term problems - the over use of laxatives and the taking of laxatives (or other unknown remedies) as a lifelong solution to constipation (or laxative abuse for weight loss) is extremely dangerous. The fatigued colon becomes so reliant on the laxatives for emptying, that after decades of "bowel abuse" older people become completely dependent upon these products. It is as much an addiction as are other types of dependencies, and people become afraid to try the proper solution. Do not get "hooked" on products containing Senna leaves, or other "natural" laxatives. Most laxatives come from natural sources, and all can be dangerous except when prescribed for specific uses.

    SOURCES OF FIBER IN ONE'S DIET

    Without guidance, most people do not know where to find fiber in their diet. Reading materials are available on the diet and nutrition shelves of your local libraries. Any such book can be a good guide to getting started. Below you will find two lists with fiber content information. The first table can serve as a general guide. It lists the foods that are the richest sources of dietary fiber. The second table provides more specific calorie and fiber content information for a large variety of foods. This table can help you estimate your daily and weekly fiber intake.

    NORMAL GENERAL FIBER & BOWEL FUNCTION GUIDELINES

    For people who have developed hemorrhoids, fissures, or fistulae, benign anal conditions associated with straining, hard stool and chronic constipation, the above information is intended to help you get the dietary requirements that you will need for your lifetime. Fiber is not a temporary remedy, to be stopped whenever you have temporarily overcome the problem. For patients who have experienced complications of chronic fiber shortage, such as diverticulitis, getting started with a normal fiber intake can be more difficult, and may have to be very gradual. The same may be true for patients who have undergone colorectal surgery. Nevertheless, the goal remains the same. Only the steps to achieve it, or the final amounts of fiber for each person, may differ.

    Good luck with your lifelong adventure to normal bowel function. If after reading this information and working on your own you still have questions, please bring your concerns to the attention of your health care provider.

    UNDERSTANDING YOUR OWN FIBER INTAKE

    As an exercise, it is recommended that you list each item that you eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Include all representative foods. Look up the calories and fiber content in the tables and see how close your daily diet comes to providing you with the daily requirement of 25 to 30 grams of fiber. Always ask yourself, out of a seven-day week, how many days do I really eat each item.



    THE TOP 20 FIBER FOODS - CHART #1


    This list can serve as a general guide. For more specific calorie and fiber content of particular foods, to estimate your daily and weekly quotas, refer to the alphabetical chart that follows:
      1. Dried beans, peas, and other legumes. This includes baked beans, kidney beans, split peas, dried limas, garbanzos, pinto beans and black beans.
      2. Bran cereals. Topping this list are Bran Buds and All-Bran, but 100-percent Bran, Raisin Bran, Most and Cracklin' Bran are also excellent sources.
      3. Fresh or frozen lima beans, both Fordhook and baby limas.
      4. Fresh or frozen green peas.
      5. Dried fruit, topped by figs, apricots and dates.
      6. Raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.
      7. Sweet corn, whether on the cob or cut off in kernels.
      8. Whole-wheat and other whole-grain cereal products. Rye, oats, buckwheat and stone-ground cornmeal are all high in fiber. Bread, pastas, pizzas, pancakes and muffins made with whole-grain flours.
      9. Broccoli. Very high in fiber!
      10. Baked potato with the skin. (The skin when crisp is the best part for fiber.) Mashed and boiled potatoes are good, too-but not French fries, which contain a high percentage of fat.
      11. Green snap beans, pole beans, and broad beans. (These are packaged frozen as Italian beans, in Europe they are known as haricot or French beans.)
      12. Plums, pears, and apples. The skin is edible, and are all high in pectin.
      13. Raisins and prunes. Not as high on the list as other dried fruits (see #5) but very valuable.
      14. Greens. Including spinach, beet greens, kale, collards, Swiss chard and turnip greens.
      15. Nuts. Especially almonds, Brazil nuts, peanuts, and walnuts (consume these sparingly, because of their high fat content).
      16. Cherries.
      17. Bananas.
      18. Carrots.
      19. Coconut (dried or fresh-but both are high in fat content).
      20. Brussels sprouts.

    *Important as dietary fiber is, laboratory technicians have not yet been able to ascertain the exact total content in many foods, especially vegetables and fruits, because of its complexity. Consequently, estimates vary from one source to another. Where differing estimates have been found, an approximation is given in the chart, as indicated by an asterisk. The same symbol following calorie content means the number of calories has been estimated, varying according to other added ingredients, especially fats and sugars, and to the size of the "average" fruit or vegetable unit.

    FIBER INFORMATION SUMMARY

    Fiber is found in plant foods such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and is necessary in keeping your body regular. Lack of exercise, improper diet, advanced age, illnesses, injuries, and consuming large amounts of junk food reduces the body's ability to flush out toxins. There are two types of Fiber. One is water soluble and becomes soft in texture which works to soften stools. The other is insoluble and adds bulk to stools, which stimulates bowel contractions.

    FIBER USES & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    There are many reasons why it is important to have an adequate amount of Fiber in the diet. Fiber can help lower blood cholesterol levels. It reduces the risk of heart disease and stabilizes blood sugar levels. It can also prevent colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, and obesity.

    FIBER DOSAGE INFORMATION

    There are seven classifications of Fiber. They are bran, cellulose, gum, hemicellulose, lignin, mucilages, and pectin, and they all have their own function. It is best to rotate among several different supplemental Fiber sources. Start with small amounts and gradually increase your intake until your stools are the proper consistency. In addition to taking Fiber supplements, eat high Fiber foods as part of your daily diet.

    FIBER SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    Consuming excessive amounts of Fiber may decrease the absorption of zinc, iron, and calcium in your body. Always take Fiber supplements separate from other medications and supplements as it can lessen their strength and effectiveness.

    BLOOD GLUCOSE & CHOLESTEROL REGULATION

    Both gums and mucilages help to regulate blood glucose levels, aid in lowering cholesterol, and help in the removal of toxins. They are found in oatmeal, oat bran, sesame seeds, and dried beans. One of the following should be part of the daily dietary plan:




    fennel seeds


    FENNEL SEED: Fennel is an herb that is helpful for digestive purposes. The seeds of this plant help to rid the intestinal tract of mucus and aid in relieving flatulence. The German Commission E recommends 1 to 1.5 teaspoons (5 to 7 grams) of seeds per day. Recent studies have found Fennel to possess diuretic, choleretic (increase in production of bile), pain-reducing, fever-reducing, and antimicrobial actions. Fennel was formerly an official drug in the United States and was listed as being used for indigestion and possibly for stimulating milk flow in women. Whole seeds may be chewed or used in tea. Fennel seed has historically been used to aid digestion and sweeten the breath.

  • amorphophallis plant


    GLUCOMANNAN: Glucomannan is a soluble, bulk-forming fiber derived from the tuber of the amorphophallis konjac plant, it picks up and removes fat from the colon wall. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Glucomannan can provide temporary relief of constipation and may help to maintain serum lipid levels already within the healthy range. In addition, because Glucomannan helps to promote satiety (feeling of fullness), it can be an effective addition to a weight management plan that includes a healthy diet and exercise program. This substance is good for diabetes and obesity because it helps to get rid of fat. It has been recognized for normalizing blood sugar and is good for people with hypoglycemia. Glucomannan expands to 60 times its own weight, thereby helping to curb the appetite. Taking 2 to 3 capsules with a large glass of water 30 minutes before meals is helpful for reducing allergic reactions and some symptoms associated with high and low blood sugar disorders. Always be sure to drink a large glass of water when taking glucomannan in capsule or pill form, as capsules can lodge in the throat and expand there, causing breathing problems. Glucomannan is tasteless and odorless, and can be added to foods to help normalize blood sugar. Suggested dosage is 2 to 3 capsules, 2 times each day with water at mealtimes; however, capsule sizes may vary. Read product label directions before use.

  • guar plant seeds


    GUAR GUM: Extracted from seeds of the guar plant (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba), guar gum is good for the treatment of diabetes and for curbing the appetite. It also has the ability to reduce the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and low-density lipoproteins in the blood, and binds with toxic substances and carries them out of the body. Guar gum tablets must be chewed thoroughly or sucked gradually, not swallowed whole, and should be taken with lots of water, because guar gum has a tendency to ball up in the throat when mixed with saliva. It should not be used by individuals who have difficulty swallowing or who have had gastrointestinal surgery. Some persons with colon disorders may have trouble using guar gum. This product is used as a baking aid for recipes that use gluten-free flours. Gluten is needed to impart elasticity to most doughs so they hold in the gases formed by yeast fermentation or baking powder, causing the dough to rise. Guar and xanthan gums act as substitutes for the missing gluten in gluten-free recipes. If you want to use this powder as a water soluble fiber, consider adding 1/2 teaspoon to 12-16 oz. of filtered water and drink immediately.

  • ACACIA GUM ARABIC: Gum Acacia is used to provide a soothing coating over inflammations in the respiratory, alimentary, and urinary tracts. It is also helpful for coughs, sore throat, and catarrh, eyewash, diarrhea, and dysentery. Acacia is sometimes used for typhoid fever as well. Acacia is highly soluble, with low viscosity and a high soluble dietary fiber content, and therefore, used in meal replacement products, nutritional beverages, and weight-loss products. Acacia gum has been used in food as a stabilizer and in pharmaceuticals as a demulcent. It is used topically for healing wounds and has been shown to inhibit the growth of periodontal bacteria and the early deposition of plaque.

  • psyllium husk seeds


    PSYLLIUM SEED: Psyllium (Plantago ovata) is a grain grown in India that is utilized for its fiber content. A good intestinal cleanser and stool softener, it is one of the most popular fibers used. It thickens very quickly when mixed with liquid, and must be consumed immediately. Some health care providers recommend Metamucil, which contains psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid, as a laxative and fiber supplement. However, many practitioners and consumers prefer less processing and all-natural products.

    Psyllium seed is a mild bulk-forming laxative carefully tested to assure purity and quality. Psyllium seed is useful in support of constipation (irregularity) It generally produces bowel movements in 12 to 72 hours. When immersed in the intestines psyllium increases in volume and swells the amount of intestinal matter. This stimulates and lubricates the bowels and helps move waste through the colon. Drink a full glass (8 ounces) of liquid with each dose. Adult and children 12 years of age and over: Take 6 capsules once daily. Children 6 to 11 years of age: Take 3 capsules once daily. Children under 6 years of age: Consult a health care provider.

    Psyllium Husk Powder can be a convenient way to increase the intake of dietary fiber. Surveys have shown that the fiber content of the American diet is typically about half of government recommended levels. As a dietary supplement, mix 1 level tablespoon into at least 12 ounces of water or juice and consume immediately. Be sure to drink plenty of additional fluids throughout the day. Start with smaller amounts and gradually increase over several weeks.

    ACACIA GUM ARABIC HERBAL PRODUCTS

    Acacia is a natural, pure, certified organic, soluble dietary fiber produced from the gum of the Acacia tree (also known as gum arabic). Acacia is a natural plant water-soluble fiber that has been harvested for millennia in Africa; its recorded dietary use dates back to the Egyptian pharaohs. Scientific studies have shown that as part of the diet, soluble fiber can help to encourage intestinal regularity. Acacia Powder is also known to be an excellent prebiotic, as it supports healthy gut flora. Because it actually slows fermentation and decreases gas and bloating, Acacia Powder is well tolerated. Acacia Fiber Powder can be used daily and contains no GI irritants or stimulants. Pure soluble fiber supplements are helpful not just for IBS, but also for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis, plus diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Acacia is simply an organic, prebiotic soluble fiber supplement with absolutely nothing else added, and it normalizes bowel function naturally in the same manner as soluble fiber foods. Add Acacia to cup, then add liquid or add Acacia to moist foods. 1 level teaspoon equals 2 grams soluble fiber. One pound has 180 teaspoon doses. Start with a low dose and gradually increase. Take 1 to 3 times a day.

  • GLUCOMANNAN HERBAL SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Glucomannan (Amorphophallus konjac fiber) is a 100% dietary fiber source obtained from the root of the konjac plant. Glucomannan is a calorie-free, natural plant fiber that removes fat from the colon wall and gently helps to cleanse the intestines and relieve constipation. It increases bulk in the stomach (and intestines) and gives dieters a feeling of fullness, which helps reduce the appetite and assist in weight loss programs. Glucomannan fiber may also be beneficial in lowering total cholesterol and regulating blood sugar levels. We need fiber in our diets every day for good health and Glucomannan supplements are an easy way to fulfill that need.

    Rice Bran is a highly nutritious food with a pleasant flavor. It is a good source of dietary fiber and is mostly insoluble. Insoluble fibers are found primarily in the cell wall of a plant. Although they won't dissolve in water, they do attract water which improves the transit time in the intestinal tract. Best kept refrigerated.
