How to Avoid and Treat Constipation
First, What is constipation?
Being constipated means your bowels movements are tough or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone goes through it sooner or later. Even though this is not that serious, your body will feel much better when you get back on track.
The length of time between bowel movements varies from person to person. Some people might have them 3 times a week, others have them once a week.
Why does it happen?
- Poor hydration
- Low fibre ingest
- Laxative abuse and overuse
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Eating disorders
- Irritable bowel syndrome
What are the symptoms?
- Gas or flatulence
- Few bowel movements
- A sense that everything didn’t come out
- Swollen belly or belly pain
Mild cases of constipation can usually be treated easily by changing your daily routine with a combination of changes in your diet. For example, have more fibre, fruits and vegetables in your foods, and drinking more water.
Some natural remedies are:
- Psyllium husk
Also, you can take stimulants such as cascara or senna, but remember to not abuse the intake, because they may cause awful cramps and they should be taken in a short-time.
