Constipation is known as the mother of all ailments. This statement probably is an exaggeration but it definitely is a source of many ailments. Scientific studies have conclusively proven that upto 80% of immune system is dependent on a healthy digestive system, constipation causes a lot of issues which range from acne, lack of energy, backache etc. If you are looking for the best natural permanent cure of constipation, then read on.
By following some simple steps you can avoid constipation permanently.
The most common reasons for constipation are these:
- Unhealthy eating habits
- Lack of exercise
- Use of some allopathic medicines
The first 3 things in the above list can be easily fixed. Homeopathy may cure the 4th.
The constipation due to genetic reasons results in either a stool which is hard & dry, meaning that the intestines are not secreting enough juices for the digestion to work OR a stool which is long like a snake meaning that the peristaltic action of the intestines is not working. Homeopathy shines in curing this.
Constipation can cause anal fissures (cuts) in the rectum, burning, feeling of incomplete relief etc.
Three things can form the basis of best natural permanent cure of constipation to help reduce constipation substantially without the use of any medicine. Those things are:
- Eating enough fiber
- Drinking enough water
- Doing moderate exercise
Just telling that you have to eat fiber is not enough. If you eat the wrong type of fiber, you will worsen the problem. You need to understand the difference between SOLUBLE and INSOLUBLE fiber.
If you have a tendency towards constipation then you need to add INSOLUBLE fiber to your diet. A few good sources of insoluble fiber are broccoli, whole wheat, bran, husk etc. This fiber stimulates good bowel movement and adds the needed roughage to form adequate stool..
SOLUBLE fiber slows down digestion and helps REDUCE CHOLESTEROL but doesn’t help with constipation. A few good sources of soluble fiber are apple, oats, banana etc.
The importance of drinking enough water can’t be emphasized enough for constipation. The simple test to see if you are well hydrated and drinking enough water is that your urine should be clear, not yellow or any other color.
Exercising moderately improves the digestive process & avoids constipation. Exercising vigorously will have the opposite effect and cause constipation to worsen. There are several complex reasons for it. So if you want to help reduce constipation, you should do brisk walk or light jogging for 20-30 minutes daily.
Most ailments respond well to homeopathic treatment but if you are on some allopathic medicines which can’t be stopped and are causing constipation, then you can use homeopathic treatment in conjunction with your allopathic treatment.
If you are living a health lifestyle, not consuming allopathic medicines & still have constipation, you should try homeopathic treatment as it has the potential to cure constipation caused due to genetic factors.
