Home Remedies for Constipation

1. Constipation treatment via Bael Fruit

Normally all fruits, except banana and jackfruit, are useful in the treatment of constipation. Certain fruits are, however, more useful. Bael fruit is regarded as the finest of all laxatives. It cleans and tones up the bowels. Its normal use for two or three months throws out even the old accumulated faecal matter. It must be rather taken in its original form and before dinner. About sixty grams of the fruit are enough for an adult.

2. Constipation treatment with Pear

Pears are useful in the treatment of constipation. Patients suffering from chronic constipation must accept an exclusive diet of this fruit or it’s juice for a few days, but in normal cases, a medium-sized pear taken after dinner or with breakfast will have the desired effect.

3. Constipation treatment with Guava

Guava is another helpful remedy for constipation. When eaten with seeds, it provides roughage to the diet and helps in the standard evacuation of the bowels. One or two guavas should be taken daily.

4. Constipation treatment with Grapes

Grapes have proved very helpful in overcoming constipation. The combination of the properties of the cellulose, sugar, and organic acid in grapes build them a laxative food. Their field of action is not inadequate to clearing the bowels only. They also tone up the stomach and intestines and reduce the most chronic constipation. One must take at least 350 gm of this fruit daily to achieve the desired results. When fresh grapes are not obtainable, raisins, soaked in water, can be used. Raisins must be soaked for twenty-four to forty-eight hours. This will make them swell up to the original size of the grapes. They must be eaten early in the morning, along with the water in which they have been soaked.

5. Constipation treatment with Orange

Orange is also beneficial in the constipation treatment. Taking one or two oranges at bedtime and again on increasing in the morning is an excellent way of stimulating the bowels. The all-purpose stimulating influence of orange juice stimulates peristaltic activity and helps prevent the accumulation of food residue in the colon.

6. Constipation treatment using Papaya and Figs

Other fruits specific for constipation are papaya and figs. Partly a medium-sized papaya should be eaten at breakfast for it to act as a laxative. Four or five dry figs must be soaked overnight in a little water and eaten in the morning.

7. Constipation treatment with Spinach

Among the vegetables, spinach has been measured to be the most vital food for the entire digestive tract from time immemorial. Raw spinach holds the finest organic material for the cleansing, reconstruction, and regeneration of the intestinal tract. Raw spinach juice-100 ml, mixed with an identical quantity of water and taken twice daily, will cure the most aggravated cases of constipation in a few days.

8. Constipation treatment by means of Other Remedies

Half a lime, squeezed is a glass of hot water, with half a teaspoon of salt is also an effective medicine for constipation. Drinking water, which has been kept overnight in a copper vessel, first thing in the morning, brings superior results. Linseed (alse) is extremely useful in complicated cases of constipation. A teaspoon of linseed swallowed with water before each meal offers both roughage and lubrication.

Home remedies for constipation?

Any good home remedies to relief constipation ? Thanks

Hello Lukas,

Most types of constipation are due to some degree of dehydration. It may be that the level of water you are drinking is not enough, even though you may believe it is enough.

It may also be that you are taking something which is diuretic in nature, meaning something that causes you to lose water, i.e. Through urinating more, thus losing more water.
In warm climates, more water is needed.

Fiber is required in order for the intestines to move stool along properly, so ensuring you get enough fiber in your diet can be one additional, and also a valid remedy. Green leafy vegetables such as “Greens” and cabbage are examples. Also wholemeal bread, meaning bread that contains as much of the original fiber as possible. Genuine wholemeal bread weighs more than fake “wholemeal”. A genuine wholemeal loaf is also harder to squeeze.

You should consider enemas and purgatives as only a temporary workaround, since continued use would make you dependant on them.

You could try the herb “Fringetree” (Chionanthus virginicus).
The part of this plant which is used is the root bark.
Preparation and dosage:
Infusion: Pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoonsfuls of the bark and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.
“… Through its action of releasing bile it acts as a gentle and effective laxative.”

Also, consider the following.

Put something like a bowl upside down on the floor of the toilet and put your feet on it so you are raised up somewhat. (This means however, that you will not be able to urinate at the same time as passing stool.) This raises you up to a better squatting position and you will find it easier to pass stool.

Read a book or magazine to divert your attention while waiting to pass stool, since the body prefers to evacuate stool in a somewhat automated manner.

I hope you feel better soon.

Regards,

Robert.

Paul asks…

home remedy for a child with constipation?

She’s 5. I won’t give her a laxitive or anything simular…the last time cost us a mattress 🙁 She hates prunes and apple juice just cramps her up. I have chugging water and staying away from dairy. Can anyone add to that?

vti answers:

The only “home remedy” I know is the one which has been practised in my family for generations – the soapstick suppository. Hold off from this unless she’s in pain and/or hasn’t “done” for 3 or 4 days. If that’s the case – cut off a sliver of worn down ivory or glycerine soap, put plenty of vaseline on (and in) her butt and push the soap all the way in there. It has a combined lubricant and irritant (potentially strong irritant) effect – and it’s almost guaranteed to make her do a smelly in half an hour!

Any home remedies for constipation?

vti answers:

You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer.

Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system.

Perhaps red meat is the culprit as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22red+meat%22+%2B+constipation&fr=ush-ans as it can take up to 3 days to go through the system.

The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation.

Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here’s a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems:

•Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats,

•Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk,

•Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc.,

•Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products,

•Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains,

•Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies,

•Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats.

You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22how+to+relieve+constipation+naturally%22&fr=ush-ans which tells you “How to Relieve Constipation Naturally”.
