Natural Cures for Constipation

Colon Cleanses

Eating meat, fat, dairy products, junk food and processed food can build up in our colon walls over time.  Waste matter gets through our digestive system within 72 hours and depending on what you eat then 30% of putrid food matter can sit in your gut for more than a week.  The colon is like an accordion and  the food remnants accumulate in the crevices.  The accumulation perpetuates slower contraction of the colon walls causing more build up.  This becomes a vicious cycle that can lead to chronic constipation if not corrected in time.  Constipation Remedies such as moving to a diet higher in fruit, vegetables and nuts while undertaking a detoxifying colon cleanse can get your gut back on track to healthier eliminations faster.

Colon Hydrotherapy

Constipation Remedies such as Colon Hydrotherapy cleanse the colon by introducing water that reaches the crevices of the walls of the large intestine to soften up the impacted material that has accumulated over years or decades on the colon walls.  Colonics have been in use since the ancient Greeks and is safe, fast and effective.  To achieve maximum benefit then a course of colonics can further hydrate the colon to remove more toxic material but you may feel the benefits after your first one such as more energy and weight loss.  Although enemas are recommended for constipation they can only clear a few inches of the colon whereas a colonic can reach the whole large intestine.

Physical Activity

Regular physical activity will help to stimulate the bowel whereas sitting still for long periods of time can lead to constipation.

Constipation and hemorrhoids are rare in Eastern countries and it is thought that this is due to their use of squatting toilets.  Constipation remedies for this require using a stool to rest your feet so that your knees are higher than your waist which gives a similar squatting posture that is easier for elimination.

If these constipation remedies are not working or you are experiencing abdominal pain then you should make an appointment with your doctor.  They will be able to identify any medical condition that could be causing your constipation or give further suggestions for remedies or treatment.
