- - flax seeds;
- - the fruits of the laxative zhoster.
Take your time to do enemas. Of course, they are highly effective, but with frequent use, you can develop a feeling of addiction in your body. And instead of getting rid of the problem, only make it worse. Procedures using the Esmarch mug are recommended to be carried out approximately 2-3 times a month.
Most often, constipation is caused by improper diet or imbalance in water and salt balance. Therefore, go for foods high in fiber. These are bran bread, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, beets, spinach, legumes, and prunes. Drink fermented milk products such as yogurt, kefir, kvass, kumis every day. Refuse the use of chocolate, white rice, coffee, strong tea. All of them inhibit peristalsis, as they have strong astringent properties.
For normal bowel movements, drink at least two to three liters of fluid during the day
Constipation can occur due to non-compliance with the regimen. For example, you didn't have time to go to the toilet. Soon it becomes a habit, and your gut simply does not understand that it is necessary to normalize its work. In this case, try to drink a glass of water in small sips on an empty stomach every morning and at lunchtime.
Do gymnastics, especially strengthening your abdominal muscles.
You can get help by contacting your doctor. You will be prescribed prokinetics that can improve bowel motility, or contact laxatives - suppositories or small-volume water-oil enemas.
Use traditional medicine recipes. Brew a teaspoon of flax seeds in a glass of boiling water and leave, wrapped in a warm cloth, for 4-5 hours. Drink an unstrained infusion before bedtime.
Pour a tablespoon of crushed fruit of the laxative joster with a glass of water and heat, bringing to a boil. Insist in a warm place for 2 hours. Drink the infusion before bed.
