Effective And Natural Constipation Remedies

By Keith M. Henry

Many constipation remedies have become popular because of chronic constipation. This is a abnormality tolerated by many people who don't experience regular or frequent bowel movements. Those who experience ongoing constipation grapple with symptoms that include abdominal bloating, intestinal pain, skin problems, nausea, headaches and lethargy. Constipation symptoms could also include infrequent bowel movements, hard stools, or strain during bowel movements.

Dr. Linda Berry is a a chiropractor and clinical nutritionist, and she summarizes the symptoms of self-poisoning in the following manner, "If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be experiencing autointoxication (a process whereby you are poisoned by substances produced by your own body as a result of inadequate digestion and elimination), and therefore you might want to consider some type of internal cleansing program.Common symptoms resulting from accumulated toxins in the bowel can result in the following conditions:

Depression, Allergy Symptoms, Frequent headaches, Bad Breath , PMS, Fatigue, Ulcerative Colitis and colon cancer, Insomnia, Irritability, Frequent Gas and Bloating , Frequent and/or alternating bouts with constipation and diarrhea , Frequent Infections , Excess weight, Impaired digestion Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Parasite infestation , Hemorrhoids , Frequent colds and a Protruding belly.


The cause of the condition can be ascribed to chronic dehydration, chronic stress, certain medications, bad diet, lack of fiber, lack of physical exercise, dehydration and certain sicknesses. Surprisingly, "postmortems oftentimes disclose colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material" revealed Vegetarian Times, March, 1998. The consequence of this is the toxic condition of the full system, and the ending consequence is disease and at length death.

Constipation Remedies

Addressing the annoying side effects of irregularity typically requires a aggregated program of attack which commonly includes one of several constipation remedies. Constipation remedies are commonly classified as hydrating, bulk-forming, lubricant, emollient, osmotic, or stimulant.

Constipation remedies can range from at-home "recipes" that people have used for centuries, to contemporary chemical laxatives. Natural and non-invasive constipation remedies can be very useful, contingent on your plan of attack. For example amongst the effective home constipation remedies is flax seed.

Blended with apple cider vinegar, flaxseed is one of numerous natural constipation remedies. The reason it is so useful is because it utilizes essential fatty acids that help lubricate the bowels and establish proper bowel function.

A great constipation remedy is made by of boiling 2 cups of water with 2 tablespoons of flaxseed for 10-15 minutes. Once you strain the flaxseed from the boiled mixture, you have a gelatinous substance, which should be consumed on an empty stomach.

A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar can be added to intensify the remedy's effectuality. This mixture can be ingested on a daily basis until systematized bowel movements are experienced.

Something else that you could do is to eat three or four tablespoonfuls of ground flaxseed daily. It could be blemded into a smoothie, sprinkled on salads or added to other dishes.

There are herbs that also work well as constipation remedies to help detoxify the bowel, and to feed it and restore it, as well as to feed and restore other organs such as the gallbladder; these herbs include casagrada sagrada, senna, and rhubarb among others.

There are many very effective constipation remedies and we'd do well to avail ourselves of the same. The old adage is true, and we should take it seriously"Death Begins in the Colon".
