Society, here in the USA, does not encourage all our citizens to be fully in charge of their health, wealth and spirit. Who is society? All of us. Make some sense out of that one! In or out of a crisis, it very often seems easier to trust the doctor, investment counselor, spiritual advisor [aka minister, rabbi, etc.] to tell us what to do. In the long term it rarely plays out well, leaving people physically,financially and spiritually bankrupt.

I will get to the point here: If you are depressed and constipated there is a whole lot you can do, but it is not as easy as more water and a high fiber diet. Depression and constipation go together hand in hand. Who feels good when they are blocked, right? It all goes way deeper than take two and call me in the morning.


I am currently taking GABA and I have found it to be very helpful. If you are a raw food eater, vegan, or eating a whole food diet that includes meat and are grappling with constipation the information here is important to understand. Cleansing, as it is more widely understood is uninformed and  simplistic.  If the idea that healthy stools are characterized by being well formed, brown, float and odorless is foreign to you, please reconsider what defines real gut health.

Click here for more information on GABA. The two articles I have chosen do not mention taking GABA as a nutritional supplement. They do chronicle the effects of the lack of GABA and other neurotransmitters in our gut. Click here for second article Donna Gates – Body Ecology Diet.

I am currently participating in The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. Click here to learn more. I have written other posts about the program and updating past posts. including her information as part of them. I have also written past posts about The Body Ecology Diet. When I began this blog I was following BED for three years. There is some good information in the BED book, but it did not heal my digestion.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
