Constipation is one of those conditions that can affect your daily life significantly if not handled swiftly. In most cases, constipation is caused by the things we eat and in some extreme cases caused by diseases. In this brief, I am going to share some of the best methods to cure constipation at home.
Drink a lot of coffee
This is not a very common home remedy for constipation because it doesn’t work for everyone. However some scientists believe that caffeinated drinks increases the number of times you will visit the washroom and consequently treat constipation. Try taking enough coffee and it may help you.
This is another very effective home remedy. Baking soda helps in neutralizing the acids in the stomach and therefore reverses the condition. It also encourages the production of gas that will provide some relief to your stomach. Put one teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and drink it. The results can be seen within an hour.
Exercise has no scientific support that it can be able to counter constipation. However, majority of the people who exercised when they had constipation reported some improvements. Moving your body during the exercise initiates the movement of the bowel muscles which can correct the situation.
Use flax seeds oil
Flax seeds oil is one of the most effective remedies for constipation. They have been a natural remedy to several body conditions and believed to be effective. They are high in fiber and at the same time contains omega 3 fatty acids. The oil available in the processed flax seeds adds a layer of lubricant to your intestines to make passing of stool easier and smoother.
Use Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a herb that has been used for centuries as a remedy to several health conditions. It is commonly known for its effects on the skin but it can as well be used in reducing internal bleeding, treating ulcers and also burns and constipation. It is believed that Aloe Vera when consumed can be able to initiate bowel movement and eventually reduce symptoms of constipation.
This herb is known to soothe the digestive system and also detox the colon. It works by irritating the digestive tract so that if the need arise, the digestive tract will produce more mucus. The mucus will then coat the gut and make bowel movement easy and more frequent.
