The idea is that IBS-C, and constipation in general is caused by endotoxin build-up cutting off circulation to the intestines. By this, the carrot salad acts as a sweep. Coconut oil, and vinegar with some honey are carried by the carrot fiber, which suppresses endotoxin growth and stimulates healing of the wall of the intestine; therefore promoting regularity(increase circulation), and the increased weight of the stool heals stress and gets rid of more toxins.
