There could be several reasons why you may be suffering from constipation. Doctors believe that a poor diet rich in sugar or animal fats and low fiber is one of the critical causes of constipation. Nevertheless, constipation can be cured easily by monitoring your diet and by using natural remedies.

Medication that contains calcium or aluminum may also cause infrequent bowel movements. Other common causes of constipation include

  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Being physically inactive
  • Underactive thyroid
  • Taking too many laxatives

Symptoms

Besides having difficulty passing stools, what are other common symptoms of constipation? If you have been suffering from constipation, you may have some swelling near the abdomen or have frequent urges to vomit.

You may have some pain when passing stools or might be unable to have a proper bowel movement after pushing for more than ten minutes.

Remedies to cure constipation

Now that we have looked at some causes for constipation let's look at a few natural remedies for constipation.

Include more fiber in your diet

One of the most common pieces of advice that you can get to treat constipation is including more fiber in your diet. According to professionals, fiber helps you bulk up stool, making it easier to pass through your digestive system.

If you cannot increase the total amount of fiber in your diet, then you should add natural fiber supplements to your diet. Take these supplements regularly if you want to ease constipation and prevent any buildup of hard stool in your body's digestive tract.

Drink plenty of water

An effortless method to ease constipation and prevent hard stools from building up is to drink a lot of water. Numerous health benefits come with drinking more fluids, and softening stools to help make it easier to pass is one of them.

Professional doctors recommend drinking at least three to four extra glasses of water every day. This should be in addition to the total amount of liquid you consume to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.

Take probiotics

Probiotics help your body by introducing your gut to "good" bacteria that keep your digestive system healthy and properly working. They will also help you relieve any secondary constipation by softening stool that has hardened due to medications or any other underlying health conditions.

Regularly taking probiotics can help you ease straining when having a bowel movement. However, we suggest you consult a professional doctor before you get on any medication.

If you are looking for a natural remedy to help you solve constipation, search for "homeopathy doctors near me" online. Since homeopathy is 100% natural, it will not have any side effects on your body that you need to be worried about.

A doctor of homeopathy will ask you numerous questions before prescribing you the appropriate medication. Not only does homeopathy have any side effects, but it will also give you longer-lasting results.

If you have severe stomach pain and find it difficult to pass any stool, it would be best to get in touch with a doctor as soon as possible.
