Why wasting time in describing what constipation is?
1. For people having constipation fruits like apple, banana, grapes, dates, peach, cantaloupe and pineapple are great to use.
2. Isabgol(psyllium) is also an immediate remedy to get relieve from constipation. However it can produce gases in stomach if the stool is not released after its intake.
3. Syrup of tamarinds and plums also relieves constipation. To make the syrup, add plums and tamarinds (equal quantity) in water and store it for one night. At morning, remove the tamarinds seeds, add salt and sugar according to your taste and drink the prepared syrup<
4. Proper habits
From childhood mothers must develop habit in their children to go for toilet early in morning when they get up. Unnecessarily, going for toilet at irregular times is not recommended. Mothers must play a role here
5. Don’t postpone seeing a toilet
Make a habit of going to toilet every morning before or after the breakfast. A glass of water at morning,empty stomach, will do the trick. Some people take tea for such purposes while others read newspapers or go for a walk.
6. Take a proper Breakfast
Diet is the most helpful factor in getting relief from constipation. Mostly people take heavy breakfasts at morning while others do not even bother to eat anything. Both these behaviors are wrong. Take a balance approach! Patients who have joints problems along with constipation must take tea or coffee 3 hours before or after the breakfast. This will save them from joints pain and prevent constipation. A butter toast, porridge, eggs and warm milk is best for breakfast. Salad of mix vegetables and fruits is also a great constipation reliever.
7. Take a proper Lunch
Your lunch must contain food that develops smoothness and movement in intestine. Use of vegetables and fruit is better. Use carrots , radish, cucumber and cabbage as salad during lunch. After lunch, strictly avoid taking icy cold water. This freezes saturated and unsaturated oil in intestines and restricts the relevant movement required during food transport.
8. Take a proper dinner
Your dinner must also contain food that aids developing movement in intestines. Adding garlic while cooking meat can make the food excellent for intestines and can even instantly relieve you from constipation. Vegetables and fruits contain high content of cellulose. This provides bulk to the intestinal content and aids easy movement of content outside the body
9. Proper intake of water
During constipation , large intake of water is also helpful. At morning, empty stomach, 3-4 glass of water is very beneficial for constipation as well as blood pressure patients. However drinking water during the day, when you are not feeling thirsty, is not good for stomach.
10. Exercise daily
Young people who daily run, exercise, swim and get involve in healthy activities never face constipation. Hardly, you would have seen any young man complaining about constipation. Make habit of fast walk during morning and take long breaths early morning in fresh air. Long breaths help oxygen to reach inner body parts and speeds up the process of intestinal digestion- a great trick to get relieve from constipation. A proper supply of oxygen to large intestine prevents the waste food from getting stale, thereby providing easy movement of stool outside the body.
