Just Along the Corner: Do It Yourself Constipation Remedies at Home


There are simple solutions for constipation that come straight from the kitchen. All you need to do is fix it up, and sooner or later, you will start letting go of all that ugly stuff that might be residing in your intestines for quite some time! Why not try these out?
  • The Abdomen Massage


    Do you know that massaging your abdomen can help foster bowel movement? Here is how it goes:
    • when you feel the urge to defecate, upon going to the bathroom and having sat on the toilet
    • press your belly button or navel with both hands.
    • Spread your hands away from each other in a clockwise direction.
    • Simultaneous with the massage, you alternately compress and relax your abdomen.
  • Shivering, dithering, splendid!


    Dithering can be a solution also. To help speed up bowel movement, try to dither your upper body first. Then simultaneously do the compression and relaxation of your abdomen. In this case you get spared from waiting a long time to get your bowel movement done.
  • The Vinegar Magic


    This magic is best done first thing in the morning upon getting up, because the stomach is still empty.
    • Prepare a cup of lukewarm water.
    • Add a tablespoon of vinegar, and drink it in.
    • After having your breakfast, drink another glass of warm water again.
    • Then go outside and walk around (breathing in the early morning aroma for a fresh start!) for approximately 30 minutes to one hour.
    • You can now expect the results of your remedy at around noon.

    It is best recommended to be done daily. You will be surprised to have normal bowel movement for years!
  • Laver Soup Remedy


    This is quite another constipation remedy. Like the vinegar magic remedy, this is best done first thing in the morning.
    • Take in about one to two cups of warm laver soup.
    • Continue to do so before every meal.
    • You can add some vinegar to improve results.
    You will be surprised how your bowel movement will improve in a day or so!
  • Porridge to the Rescue


    Who says that a constipation remedies necessarily need to be tasteless and artless? Well, here's something you can work on without depriving your taste buds! Usually recommended for the oldies, but the younger generation are not deprived too!
    • First, prepare the following:
      a liter of water, ½ cup of millet, ½ cup of rice, and a cup of sweet potato, preferably one with red flesh.
    • Make porridge out of the ingredients.
    • Take the porridge before and after dinner.
    Expect to unload lots of stuff the day after!
  • Water Flush


    Water is simply a wonder. It is one thing always readily available that can immediately help in your quest for a better bowel movement! Sometimes, our grandmothers are just wiser than modern-day tips on eliminating constipation.

    As soon as you stumble out of your bed, drink successively six up to eight glasses of warm water. You will be surprised how it gets your digestive system in a hyperactive state! It immediately adds water to your stools, making it more heavy and ready to travel down your colon. No wonder our doctors always tell us to drink lots of fluids. But when we say fluids, we do not mean coffee, carbonated drinks, or sodas. By saying fluid here, we mean water. Yes you got it right: water!
  • Not Too Old for Milk


    You think you are too old for milk? Wrong. Milk can help relieve constipation, aside from giving you the calcium you need as your bones start to deteriorate due to aging.

    Before pulling on the covers for a good night's sleep, try doing what toddlers are used to do: drink your own share of milk. One warm glass will work quite well. This will help ease up your problem with defecation. If you happen to experience chronic constipation, try to add in two spoonfuls of castor oil into your warm glass of milk. Careful though. Be sure the next day you are staying at home! :-) You might be repeatedly running to the comfort room to unload all those gooey stuff.
  • Sleep Right, Flush Right


    Who says sleep does not have anything to do with a faulty bowel movement? Well, to put it straight, do not take your sleep for granted.

    Sleep for at least eight hours. Spare yourself from late-night stress. You will be surprised how much change it will do on your bowel movement.
  • Get Your Entire Body Moving


    It might help moving the couch to another floor and on its place do your usual workout. Research has proven that there is a link between lack of physical activity with that of constipation. So get yourself moving. A twenty to thirty-minute walk every day, especially after having your dinner, is enough to get your body cells energized to start detoxifying. Careful though not to do it RIGHT AFTER dinner. We all know you would not want your appendix shrieking in terror.
  • Shivering, dithering, splendid!


    Dithering can be a solution also. To help speed up bowel movement, try to dither your upper body first. Then simultaneously do the compression and relaxation of your abdomen. In this case you get spared from waiting a long time to get your bowel movement done.
