The Natural Way to Cure Constipation

The Natural Way to Cure Constipation
Constipation is a chronic problem and there is no person on earth who has not suffered from constipation at some time during their lifetime. There are numerous causes of constipation which can be related to psychological or other causes like a faulty diet with very little fibers, busy and hectic schedules which leads to skipping of the calls of nature. Constipation is present for more than a month or there are bouts of constipation at regular intervals calls for remedial action. As I had already explained that constipation is not a trivial occurrence and needs very serious action to prevent future ailments.

The human body is like a filter and it uses water to flush out the toxins which are formed in the body during the normal process of metabolism. Hence it is a very good idea to have plenty of water which will not only help to flush out the toxins but also help to soften the stools and prevent constipation. You can also try herbal remedies for constipation which are not only effective but can be used for long without any fear of addiction or side effects.

I had already explained that constipation has a psychological cause also. Anxiety and depression can trigger constipation and it worsens with prolonged periods of depression and anxiety. Passiflora incarnata (passion flower) extracts not only help to regularize the motility woes, but it also helps to calm the frayed nerves and helps to relieve depression and anxiety which incidentally is also a cause of constipation.

Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of fibers and it is very beneficial for preventing constipation. Fruits that have a hardcover are really beneficial. The outer hard coverings of these fruits have a lot of chitin and it helps to increase the mass and volume of the stools.
