Are you one of those people who suffer from constipation? Do you face this regularly? Want a solution as soon as possible to this problem? Constipation is said to be a very common problem and one or the other time you will have to go through it. It’s not a serious problem but that doesn’t mean it can be ignored. You may end up ruining your whole day and won’t be able to move forward throughout the day. You will feel a sense of discomfort for the rest of the day. If you going through such a problem for a longer period of time you should definitely visit your doctor. If you keep avoiding it, it will increase the risk and create more problems. Before we get into the details. Let’s just know in detail what constipation is and how it causes? 

Define Constipation

Constipation is usually associated with hardened fences which makes it difficult to empty the bowel movements.  Before making its way into the gastrointestinal act it has to digest food in the stomach or small intestine where the water is also absorbed. Since it is a liquid form it will be converted to solid and removed as waste from the rectum. If the movement of waste through the tract slows down, it will absorb more and more water, and this makes the solid formed in the body harder which makes it difficult and painful to push through the rectus muscles and excrete the waste. The pain and difficulty that arises in the body are referred to as constipation. In normal situations, there should be at least one bowel movement each day. Even if you pass two or three bowel movements a day it is considered to be healthy for an individual. 

What can the reasons be for constipation?

There can be many reasons that come under constipation, but the most common reason out of them all will be your unhealthy diet. It is not important that the food that makes your taste bud feel happy will be good for your stomach as well. Junk food is one of that food that is loved by all but is really bad for your stomach and can ruin your entire appetite. Some of the other causes might be: 

  • Intake of fluid is very less  
  • Increased intake of milk or other dairy products 
  • Performing no physical activities at all. Being at one place for a longer period of time. 
  • Not maintaining a proper sleeping schedule.  
  • Less consumption of fiber food like fruits and vegetables. 
  • Pregnant women may suffer from constipation because of hormonal changes.  

Under such digestive hindrances it is not easy to point finger at the exact cause but out of these few can definitely be held accountable. Once we are explored our causes here. Let’s find out different kinds of treatment for this problem.  

Constipation treatment  

Visiting the doctor for any kind of cure is medication always. Without the doctor’s permission never go for any random medication. Doctors are the ones who provide you with the right information.  

Apart from medication, there are many home remedies that can be used for constipation. These home remedies are simple and can easily find the ingredients to prepare them at home.  

Medication can be used to treat constipation but it does have side effects. It does help to cure your problem but only till the medicine is in your stomach. You need to keep having it again and again which is really not good for the health as it leads to kidney failure.  

 Are you one of those people who hate taking medicines? Do you find a natural way better and simpler? So, what do you think can be the best option to treat your constipated tummy? 

“Yoga” is said to be a really good exercise for constipation. Yoga has gained a lot of attention in the past few years. It has become quite popular not only around the Indian society but the foreign people also do truly believe and follow. Not just exercise, following a strict diet plan, is also really important as well. Constipation leads to pain and discomfort, and Yoga helps you to ease this pain in two different ways:  

  1. Stress management- It can be another reason to increase the risk of digestive issues and in this matter, nothing other than yoga can help you to relax so well.  

  1.  It helps to massage your abdomen since yoga involves bending and twisting which helps to ease the bowel movements.  

Given below are few of the yoga poses you can try at home which will definitely help you to cure your constipation issues:  

  • Vajrasana or The Adamant Pose
