Natural Remedies for Constipation

Constipation is one of few topics that you discuss freely even with family and friends. The problem is literally subdued behind closed doors. But people who suffer know the painful and frustratingly long hours spent on the water closet.

Constipation can be an on-off thing for most lucky people some time during their life and can be caused by dehydration (less water intake during the day), medicines, illness, lack of fiber in food, etc. Symptoms might last for a day or two and getting back to normal healthy routine gets the system back on track. If things don’t get back to normal within 3 days seeking medical advice is recommended.

For many unlucky ones the suffering is a daily routine and is one of the most common and easily noticeable signs that something is not right with the stomach, intestines, or general digestive system. Constipation is not a disease or illness as such, though it can be a symptom of other digestive tract disorders or infections.

Treating it with chemical-laced laxatives and OTC medicines can provide temporary relief but the impact on gut flora and the GI tract can be damaging in the long run. Repeated use of these medicines can impede the body natural process and can cause ulcers, and other problems. Going natural allows the body to recover and heal itself without any side effects.

Here are some articles written by experts on Curejoy on how to relieve constipation naturally:

Thank-you as these suggestions are great! Also consider the Ayurvedic solution Triphala and/or taking Probiotics with several strains, perhaps as may as 15 or more. Few strains don't work as well.

My 10 daughter had been constipated for over 2 years, now just turned 13 this month.

Long story cut short:-

Having seen her own doctor; then 2 specialists; spent 10 days in hospital under observation; had some pretty painful examinations, some very invasive, had adult does of 3 types of medication concurrently; nothing made a difference, told it was "her norm" to go once every 3 weeks!!!!! Yes you read that correctly.

Some 9 months after being told this, my daughter is diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosis, my poor child, was simply unable to eat as nothing was coming out!!!

We have spent Sept to Dec 2015 in the US at an eating disorder clinic. One of the first things they did was run "Every Blood Test Kown" results were what they expected for a severely Anorexic child.

With the addition, that they advised us that along with lall the expected results her Thyroid result was very low, pracally none existent. We were asked if doctors in the UK had checked her Thyroid levels due to her history with constipation. The answer to this was no, although they had done much more invasive stuff, this simple test they had not done.

Please, if your child is suffering from sever constipation for months on end, insist they draw blood and test Thyroid Level, what my poor daughter has gone through and still going through due to "Incompetance" is beyond belief.

While sitting bring your knee's & feet together then with your hands together lean down to your left as if you wanted to touch the floor but don't. Then do the same on your right. Do this slowly keeping your knees & feet together, before long you will have luck without straining\U0001f603 !
