5 Ways to Get Relief for Constipation
- Fruits & Veggies Bonanza
This is my favorite because it revitalizes and cleanses the body by providing much needed nutrients. All you have to do is eat raw foods such as fruits, veggies and some nuts and seeds for a few days until your constipation is gone. You should eat A LOT of fruits, go ahead and eat as much as you want. I commonly eat over 1 pound of fruits per meal. Prunes, grapes, kiwifruit and figs are especially good constipation relievers.
- The BOMB
First introduced in my home remedies for constipation article. The Bomb's nickname comes from the nurses in nursing homes because it is so effective and works like, you guessed it, a bomb! It consists of 1 cup prune juice, 1 cup coffee, 20-30cc milk of magnesia. Warm it up and drink before you go to sleep. Be ready to go to the toilet when you wake up!
- Salt Water Flush
This will clean you out, but it isn't my favorite method that's for sure. What you need is natural water and unrefined sea salt. Heat up 1-2 quarts of water, throw in 1-2 tablespoons of sea salt, pour it into a container and drink in one sitting as quickly as you can. For more information on this check out my colon cleanse recipes page, the salt water flush is recipe #2.
The good old enema, it is a very effective and simple way to get your bowels moving. You can do it with a small amount of water or a with a large amount. Sometimes even a small amount of water will provoke a nice large bowel movement. For instructions check my cleansing enemas page and the related articles there.
Last but not least are laxatives, laxatives are safe and do not cause any problems. This has been proven in a study (The American Journal of Gastroenterology (2005) 100, 232–242;) where they said "There is no indication for the occurrence of "rebound constipation" after stopping laxative intake. While laxatives may be misused, there is no potential for addiction.". So if you want to try laxatives then go for it, they'll most likely help!
Remember to drink plenty of clean water every day, not just when you're doing these specific things, but also in your day to day life.
Another way to get relief for constipation is to do a herbal colon cleanse formulated by a professional herbalist.
Eliminate Constipation Naturally
One of the best ways to eliminate constipation and keep your body healthy is to do a colon cleanse.
Colon cleanses can be done by just eating a strict healthy diet, or going on a juice fast.
You can also buy a professionally made herbal colon cleanse, which has been formulated to effectively eliminate constipation, toxins, and alleviate a host of other problems.
I've done a lot of research on the best colon cleansers out there. There are a lot of bad products available. The one I recommend right now is the DrFloras colon cleanse.
They even offer a long money-back guarantee in case it doesn't work for you.
I'm very careful with what I recommend. I've done a lot of research into colon cleansers, and I only recommend the ones that use 100% natural ingredients, are safe, and effective, which is why I think you will really like DrFloras.
