Preventing Constipation

Natural remedies for constipation are intended to remove the uncomfortable feeling and pain caused by such condition. Constipation is actually one of the most common digestive problems that people experience all over the world but it is said to be more common in women and people over 65 years old. Because this condition can affect your daily activities negatively, it should be given immediate attention and cure as to not make the situation worst.

Laxatives are known to be an effective way to treat constipation because of their ability to stimulate bowel movements. But, you should not rely on laxatives. Prevention is always better than cure, which is very true. Before you suffer from constipation, why not practice the things that can prevent it?

You should identify your normal bowel habits to make sure that everything is just fine. If your bowel movement is fewer than the normal, then there is a possibility that you are suffering from constipation. Your bowel movement should not be dependent on laxatives.

A well balanced diet is also a good way to prevent constipation. This includes eating the right amount of food like grains, fruits, vegetables and foods that are rich in fiber. Your dairy intake should also be decreased. With a balanced and healthy diet you cannot only prevent constipation; you can also prevent other conditions and health problems caused by unbalanced and unhealthy food intake. Drinking plenty of water and regular exercise are also effective in preventing constipation. And lastly, you should never ignore if you feel like you want to go to the toilet.

These natural constipation cures are very easy and simple to practice. Being busy and tired is not an excuse to do these things because they are intended for your own good. Remember that the effort that you will be exerting is much less than the effort that you will exert when you suffer from constipation.

    The kiwi is a great natural remedy for constipation relief. It is one of the most affordable and easiest remedies. There was a study done in the World Journal of Gastroenterology in 2007 that showed 55% of subjects eating kiwi fruit 2x/day for 4 weeks had increased transit times of food moving through the gut as well as less discomfort associated with constipation. The only down side is that the little fruit is a little high in sugar.
