Some Lesser Known Home Remedies for Constipation

Recently an outcome from a popular survey done by a Global marketing research company, suggests that 14% of Urban Population of India is suffering from Chronic Constipation. Constipation is something which all of us come across sometime in life but find it difficult to discuss. However awkward it becomes to discuss Constipation, it is indispensable to address the problem as it is catching up as a new age problem.

  As far as cause of constipation is concerned there are numerous causes. Some of the common types of Constipation are Occasional Constipation, Travel – Related Constipation, Pregnancy related Constipation and age related Constipation. Apart from age and pregnancy related constipations, the other types are generally caused by Lack of fluids, Change in diet, Lack of exercise etc. But rather than focusing on the causes for the time being I am putting some of the remedies. Following are some of the home made remedies:

1. Lemon based remedy: Probably the best known remedy for occasional constipation is a Lemon based fluid. By adding Lemon Juice and some honey to warm water, acts as laxative. Lemon has the quality of a stimulant for the digestive system and flushes out toxins. As an alternative instead of Honey some salt can also be used. Use of salt has more than one benefit: Salt contains large percentage of Magnesium which encourages contraction of bowel muscles. Another benefit of using salt is that it is helpful in flushing out toxins from the stomach and small intestine.

2. The tracks of intestines tend to block when undigested food get stuck. Hence it is obvious that oiling the tracks is extremely necessary to keep constipation away. Therefore one may add more of olive oil or ghee in the diet. Castrol Oil also works in clearing the blockades and make the track smooth. The Olive Oil or ghee can be taken empty stomach and on waiting for 8 hours or so one can see the magic.

3. Ayurvedic medicine Triphala can be really effective. To take maximum benefit from Triphala One can take warm water and add single spoon of Triphala and drink it in one go. One should not take anything after taking Triphala and thus it works like magic throughout the night.

There are few more home remedies for constipation which I may publish in near future.
