home remedies for constipation
by Rama Nanjappa on Jun 30, 2014 03:57 PM

The suggestions are useful, but do not look like simple home remedies.There is always one which works for some people.Here are some which helped us:
- drinking large glasses of warm water through the day, especially in the night.
- eating ripe mango fruit and then taking a glass of warm milk at night
-taking ripe papaya, banana fruits. For best results, they should be taken as food in themselves and not combined with cooked food.
- walking at least 3-4km at a stretch after taking large glass of warm water.
-taking Triphala powder with warm water at bed time. Those sufferng from constipation are also likely to experience gas problems. Triphala eliminates both.
-for those interested in a more'professional' approach: There was a book titled "Yogic Therapy" by one Swami Sivananda ( not the famous one of Rishikesh)it has a chapter on constipation. The method consists in drinking warm water in the prescribed manner and quantity and then performing the prescribed asanas. Bowel movement is sure in about an hour's time.
Of course, it is essential to consult a qualified physician. An Ayurvedic doctor is best, for long time solution without side effects.But he should be a traditional one who goes by the 'nadi'.

To the Readers of this article,

Please don't follow the "suggestions" made by certain practical j0ker5 in the message board!

No ailment should be treated by taking "advice" of unqualified people!

If you are experiencing this particular discomfort or any other ailment, ALWAYS seek help and treatment from trained, qualified medical professionals!

Rediff should stop posting such articles which attract people to make a mockery of human suffering!

today's generation unfortunately consumes a lot of junk foods whose main components are refined flour, refined sugar, and cheap oils whereas our physiological food is fresh fruit, vegetables, and salads. so you should increase your fruit and greens intake on a regular basis if you want to avoid such unnecessary ailments

She cannot! It would be against the law to do so since she is only a Yoga instructor!

The best she could do is explain how to perform the PavanMuktaAasan or the 'Air Release Pose'!

If you are currently in the throes of this ailment, go to a Unani Pharmacy or Chemist; ask for 'Jamaal Gotta'; and consume a very miniscule quantity of this "reliever"!

This substance will unclog your waste matter pipes in no time!

All I know is that it is in powder form and white in color.

I don't know how it tastes because I have never had it.

My suggestion was purely anecdotal and based on witnessing its effects on the teachers in my school many years ago!

Don't have more than the amount that fits in your pinch (of thumb and index finger)!

It is a very strong purgative usually given to constipated horses and not recommended for humans unless it is case of very acute constipation.

But, it is a great way to settle scores with people you dislike though!

Take 2 to 2.5 teaspoonsful of Haritaki (churna)powder (aka 'Harda') dissolved in plain water before going to bed in severe case of Constipation. Drink plenty of water throughout the day as a preventive measure besides eating veggies that contain a lot of fiber.

You are right, Pat!

We used to mix it in sweets and give it to our strict teachers in school to get a break from them!

It used to dehydrate them so badly that they used to forget being strict!

This magical substance not only cures constipation, it also induces humility and weakness in the person who consumes it!
