Constipation is one of the commonest health problems with growing fast and wrong lifestyles which has become more common these days. Some of the causes may be due to junk foods you eat or avoid certain food groups especially fiber, wrong lifestyles, medications or certain diseases. Most of the time the causes have been unknown which is known as idiopathic. This health issue could disrupt your peaceful life and could have an impact on your physical and mental health when left untreated or unattended.

Constipation has a good scope if proper foods habits and proper lifestyle are undertaken, some of those are,

  • Drink plenty of water -Dehydration could result in constipation, so it is very essential to consume enough water. Drinking lot of fruit juices also could help you get rid of constipation
  • Add fiber into your diet - Consumption of fiber-rich fruits and veggies could help to achieve normal health
  • Exercise regularly - Physical activities and exercises may reduce the symptoms of constipation. Exercises like yoga, walking, jogging, etc could benefit to relieve the symptoms of constipation.
  • Avoid long sitting - People who have sedentary lifestyles should atleast walk once in every hour atleast.
  • Avoid Junk foods - Avoid fried foods, spicy diets specially or foods that use artificial ingredients that are used to boost up the taste, namely something mono-sodium glutamate

Hi,

Gas and constipation are a result of old food matter which is undigested and built up in the intestines. When such matter is present in our intestines, bacteria build up and feed on this and thereby cause gastric issues.

Lets briefly understand the working of our system before we understand the lifestyle changes.

Our large intestine also called colon is about 5 feet long. The walls of the colon have muscles. Its main function is to absorb water from waste from the digestive system and then create stool (waste). The muscles of the colon propel the waste out through the rectum to be eliminated. If stool remains in the colon too long, it absorbs more water and can become hard and difficult to pass. All products which create a toxic load on the body are maida, grains, dairy, animal foods, packed and processed foods, fried and sugary foods etc. They are left undigested and incomplete evacuation leads to constipation. There may be many other reasons for constipation ranging from poor lifestyle, medications, stress. Improper dietary habits can easily be rectified by the inclusion of fibre rich foods like raw vegetable fruits and whole grains. Fruits and vegetables have soluble fibre whereas whole grains have insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre can dissolve in water and creates a soft-gel like material, whereas the insoluble fibre retains its structure and adds mass and bulk to the stool. Both these together make it easier for the formation and passage of stool through the rectum.

Short term measure

  • Include fruits like papaya, guava, melons, prunes, soaked raisins, dates.
  • Cucumber juice early morning empty stomach.
  • Hot herbal teas with added ginger or star anise.

Lifestyle changes

  • Avoid all grains, animal foods, dairy, packed, processed, sugary and fried foods. They are all difficult to digest by the body. They create a toxic environment in the body.
  • Include plenty of raw vegetables and fruits. Fruits should be taken for breakfast. Since the body is in the elimination mode and fruits are predigested, they cause minimum load on the body. They also contain fibre and help in clearing the bowels.
  • Proper rest and sleep. This helps the body to repair and recover. Our digestive system also gets rest and it can focus on the cleaning aspect of the body.
  • Physical activity every day helps clear bowels. Movement by the body is essential to get rid of waste materials.
  • Manage stress either by yoga, exposure to nature or even meditation. All these release happy hormones and the body can rest and repair.

Hi,  

Constipation refers to a disturbance in bowel habits but has varied meanings. There are many factors that contribute to or cause constipation. The most common causes are:

  • Eating a diet too low in fibre
  • Eating too few calories
  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • A low physical activity level
  • Due to medications

Make the following changes

  • Behaviour changes: It is best to establish a regular pattern of bowel movement. Persons having normal bowel pattern usually defecate at approximately the same time every day. Since the bowels are most active after awakening and after meals, the most optimal time for a bowel movement is usually within the first two hours after waking and after breakfast. Don’t ignore the signal to defecate.
  • Diet: Fiber increases stool bulk, which helps stools move through the colon. The recommended amount of fibre is 20 to 35 grams daily. Fresh Fruits, green and green leafy vegetables and cereals are an excellent source of fibre. Citrus fruits, prunes, fig and prune juice are especially helpful.  Bloating and flatulence is a common problem with increased fibre so it is best to start slowly and increase the amount of fibre gradually.
  • Drinking Lauki juice, beetroot carrot juice daily in the morning also helps to relieve constipation.
  • Adding ginger in your food also helps to improve your digestion and helps to relieve constipation.
  • Insoluble fibres: Consume more insoluble fibres. Insoluble Fiber is not digested by the body and is excreted as waste. This type of fibre promotes bowel regularity and discourages the development of constipation and other complication like haemorrhoids. Insoluble fibres are present wheat bran, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and skins on vegetables and fruits.
  • Drink plenty of liquids: Drink 3-5 litres of water daily, and consume more fruits juices. Fluid helps your body process fibre without any discomfort.
  • Include exercise or physical activity in your daily routine. Physical activity is a natural way to relieve constipation. Get up early in the morning and drink lukewarm water then go for a brisk walk or gentle jogging help your body to get hydrated and help in relieving constipation.
  • Avoid Tea, coffee and other carbonated, packed/canned drinks
  • Avoid spicy, oily fried food items.
  • Avoid milk and milk products.
  • Avoid polished rice, sugar and maida.
  • Drinking cinnamon water 30 minutes before going to bed also helps to relieves constipation.
  • Consume overnight soaked figs/raisins daily to get more soluble fibres.
  • Include more raw vegetable salads and sprouts in your diet.
  • Avoid non-vegetarian food items.
  • Practice regular Yogasana: Aanas like pawanamuktasana, naukasana, matsyasana, vajarasana, vakrasana, and ardhamatsyendrasana.
  • Practice regular pranayamas like nadishuddhi and bhramari help to reduce your stress which is also helps in constipation.
  • Cold mud packs to the abdomen also more beneficial in relieving constipation.

Namasthe!
