Treating Constipation Naturally
There are various treatments methods available from your doctor to deal with the problem of constipation. However, the best advice is to find a treatment method that is based on the exact problem you are suffering from, and preventing it from occurring again.
The most common type of treatment that is prescribed for constipation is a laxative. However there are many people who do not believe that taking drugs or medication is the key to treating constipation, or any other disorder. Instead a more natural approach is needed. Using laxatives for constipation is the equivalent of putting a band-aid on an open wound. This is just a temporary measure.
The best manner of increasing fiber in the diet is by eating foods that contain more fiber. Foods high in fiber are fruits such as apples and pears. Vegetables also contain high fiber and should be included in the nature diet. It is advised to eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables as stated in the daily servings table for your country. In the United States, this amount is the equivalent of five servings.
It is hope that more fruits and vegetables will be eaten, as this is the best way to naturally treat constipation. For some people, instead of eating fruits and vegetables, they get their fiber from other sources.
There are numerous whole grains that will provide the fiber need for the body to move waste products through the intestine. The grains that help increase fiber in the diet include oats, psyllium, and wheat germ. It is best to by the organic versions of these whole grains so as not to add more additives to your body.
Another way in which constipation can be treated naturally is by using natural products such as Bowtrol. These products contain a powerful combination of all-natural ingredients that help in the regulation of bowel movements, effectively preventing constipation.
One of the simplest and most natural methods of reliving constipation is to add more water to the diet. The intestinal cells will regulate the amount of water in the blood and intestine. So to soften the stool more water will be added to it. However, if the body is already dehydrated or lacking in water, then this process does not occur and the stool remains ‘dry’ and hard leading to constipation.
Some people who have suffered from constipation have found that exercise is a great way to relieve this problem. Walking can help get the intestines moving without having to take medication.
Therefore, there are many suitable ways to treat constipation without having to get a prescription from your doctor. The more natural the method – the better it is.
