Scientific Tips to Help You Get Rid Of Your Constipation

Have you ever had those days when you just wouldn’t go to the bathroom? Well, that’s not normal. An average person visits the loo at least once a day, so if you don’t, you need to continue reading. While this topic might not be the most fun topic to discuss, it is highly important as it can be a way for your body to signal that something isn’t right.

For many people who suffer from diseases such as PCOS and endometriosis, constipation is just another burden that comes with the package, so ideally, you should be aware of how to deal with a situation like this.

Here are some tips to help you.

1. Drink Water

As basic as it sounds, this is one of the most important things that people tend to overlook. The human body is made up of 70% of water, making it essential for the regulation of normal bodily functions. The lack of water can lead to your intestinal movements getting either restricted or malfunction, which eventually results in constipation.

2. Don’t Hold It In

Many people may find it hard to use the bathroom in a foreign place, but there are some natural calls that you cannot deny. A busy schedule can be a great hindrance, but reevaluating your schedule to dedicated bathroom breaks might make it easier. This will help your body be able to make a daily routine, and you are bound to have more control over the ‘natural calls’.

3. Consume More Fiber

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body cannot digest. While its main function is to regulate body sugar and control any impulsive eating, fiber also works as a great catalyst for maintaining healthy bowel movement, so if your diet doesn’t have enough fiber, this is your sign to start including it.

Bottom Line

These are some of the top tips that are usually missed out on by many people. Though there are also short-term quick fixes such as laxatives that help in solving the problem, they come with their own set of risks and side effects that may be dangerous for long-term use.

Another issue that comes with these laxatives is that long-term use can lead to dependency, making it difficult for you to not use them. In order to prevent putting yourself in a risky situation, you should consider options that are rather less harmful and have no side effects.
