Constipated? No need to remain stuck!

Constipation can be a pain in the rear. Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where a person experiences hard feces that are difficult to defecate. If you also have bowel movements less than three times a week, need to exert during bowel movements and suffer from abdominal bloating or uneasiness, you are suffering from constipation.
By making a few simple changes in your lifestyle, you should be able to get some relief.
• Eat smaller meals. Do not have a large meal at dinner or late at night, as it is difficult to digest due to long hours of inactivity right after dinner.
• Choose lots of high-fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables such as cauliflower, green leafy vegetables, beans and wholegrain cereals and breads. By adding fiber in your diet, you may relieve yourself from gas and bloating.
• Identify and incorporate certain foods in your daily diet that have a laxative effect on you.
• Substitute refined carbohydrates like white bread for whole meal varieties, as they are very complex to break down.
• You must diligently drink plenty of water and other fluids everyday as water has a cleansing effect. Typically, drink about 8 to 10 glasses of pure water everyday.
• Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake as they lead to dehydration.
• Indulge in some form of exercise like walking, swimming, yoga or any form of cardio exercises to strengthen your muscles, which in turn, massages the intestines and colon.
• Use over the counter remedies with caution. It is advisable to remedy the situation the natural way rather than short-term remedies, unless required.
• Consult a doctor or general physician immediately if the symptoms become severe or if your constipation last longer than two weeks or more.
