Chronic Constipation - PROVEN REMEDIES FOR RELIEF
Which is the no. 1 trigger of most diseases we know of today, right from Acne to the inability to lose weight to Cancer?
It’s Chronic Constipation
It also important to understand that constipation is a symptom, not a disease, but chronic constipation can lead to deadly diseases in the long run.
Some of the common causes of constipation are-
▪️Low fiber diet
▪️Overuse of medicines like antacids
▪️Iron and calcium supplements
▪️Poorly managed stress
▪️Frequent travel & irregular meal times
▪️Following the so called “fat-free” diet and not having the right amount of acids in the stomach
▪️Constipation can also be an outcome of certain medical issues like IBS ,under active thyroid or pregnancy.
Nonetheless, a regular defecation is the most important aspect of anyone’s lifestyle .
Lets picture what happens when colon holds on to toxic waste:
▪️The toxic matter starts hardening up inside the colon which can make defecation very painful leading to fissures and haemorrhoids in extreme cases
▪️Formation of toxic gases that can get into the blood stream and circulate all over the body and cells , which can also lead to cell mutations ( cancer )
▪️That toxic gas is also an answer as to why constipated indiviuals complain of bad breath and body odor
▪️Excess Estrogen that's supposed to be eliminated can get reabsorbed into the system, leading to estrogen dominance which is one of the leading causes of breast cancer in females
▪️Infact, Constipation is one of the most common trait seen in cancer patients, apart from low Vitamin D3 levels
▪️Since 70-80% immunity lies in our gut, a toxic colon can damage immunity
▪️Unhealthy communication between the gut and the brain . Inability to produce mood boosters like serotonin, that can lead to depression , low self esteem, unhappy thoughts and sadness
So no matter what your health goal is, if you are constipated , your first focus should be on elimination
Lastly some natural remedies that can address constipation:
▪️Psyllium husk/ Isabgol is a natural laxative , much better than a synthetic one . It works well for those who are chronically constipated or travel a lot . 2-3 tsp of this mixed with water can lead to a smoother poop the next morning
▪️Triphala : 1 tbsp of triphala powder mixed with water before bed helps clean the colon next day.
▪️Eating 4-5 Soaked prunes/2 tbsp black
raisins/ dried apricots with warm water, 2 hours before bed
▪️Steeping ½ tsp of ajwain (Carom seeds) in hot water and drinking that stimulates motions
▪️1 tbsp of castor oil/extra virgin coconut oil before bed helps lubricate the passage
