If you are willing to try out something out of the ordinary, then I recommend you try this method! Advocates of traditional medicine would recommend trying an ancient Chinese tradition called the acupressure. This tradition revolves around the belief that the body is composed of pressure points. These pressure points are believed to allow access to the internal organs even though the points are just situated on the surface parts of the body. The right acupressure will help to improve the function of your digestive system.
Acupuncturists recommend the pressure point called Large Intestine Four in order to relieve constipation. This point is not studied extensively for constipation but there are reports that say it works. The point is located at the most elevated spot when the index finger and the thumb are placed close together. A very important word of advice though: never ever do these when you are pregnant! This might have deleterious effects on the unborn fetus!
To do this, place both the index finger and the thumb together. Place the middle finger, or the thumb, at a 90-degree angle with respect to the skin surface. Apply pressure, which should gradually increase and then held constant for about three minutes. It is important that the pressure exerted should not inflict pain or discomfort.
Right Food to Sweep the Goo Away
A healthy bowel movement is the result of a healthy lifestyle. If we feed ourselves with garbage, our system can become too stuck up it will result to malfunction. Here are some important tips on food to avoid constipation and at the same time relieve it.
- If life gives you lemons... squeeze the lemons and pour the juice into warm water! Refrain from putting salt or sugar. Just bear with the taste. It will surely help your bowels move faster.
- While cooking, try your best to be creative and add cumin powder and asafetida. Some ingredients to add to your grocery list can be coriander and turmeric powder. These will help your foods become readily digestible.
- Let go of what makes you stop! Therefore, say goodbye to junkfood, fastfood, readily processed foods, and everything else artificial. You might also need to say goodbye to deep frying, preserved and dried fruits and vegetables, cauliflowers, cabbages, as well as dal and some other pulses. Not unless if you want gases and toxins building up in your body! Ditch products made from processed white flour. Avoid foods such as white rice, cheese, potatoes, and sugar, because these contain complex carbohydrates. The more starch, the harder to digest. So, simply stay out of it. You can do it! You have to, if you want a healthier body.
- Do not just mix your food. It might be necessary to eat one family at a time. To be specific, do not try eating cereals, vegetables, and pulses all at one sitting. You have three meals a day to spread them out on!
Mommy Alert: Remedies for Constipation in Children
A child having constipation is perhaps one stressful event. Children are not concerned about bowel movement (they would rather play with their toys), rather, it is the mommy's job to make sure he or she gets to defecate at least once a day. So mommy, how do you do the trick?
Soy milk is also highly recommended. However, make sure the child is at home since it acts like a laxative. So do not panic if your child complains of sudden abdominal pain, it can only mean that he or she has to be rushed to the comfort room and get some flushing.

Mommy Alert: Remedies for Constipation in Babies
Well, babies hardly complain: a cry can mean everything! So every mommy should bear in mind to keep the baby from having constipation blues.
One nice tip: avoid feeding the baby a large amount of milk all in one sitting. You can suffice for it by increasing the number of the baby's feeding times. Take into consideration the growing baby's digestive system. Giving it milk in small amounts at different times of the day will help the baby's digestive system digest the milk in small quantities, helping it digest easily.
