Constipation is quite a common problem which is connected with certain changes in normal functioning of your bowels and is linked to many serious diseases and ailments. There is a number of effective solutions for this problem which embrace both medications and homemade remedies for constipation.  The latter include, in addition to using herbal remedies and natural foods, a special approach to the patient’s diet and developing healthy eating habits.

Ancient specialists in alternative medicine used to offer those people who suffer from chronic constipation to drink cucumber and radish juice, or boil oats or plums for several hours, and then drink the water where those natural products were boiled.  Also, it was believed that preparing and using a special tea from dried out slices of apples and cherries can help relieve constipation.

Modern specialists would rather recommend drinking cabbage, apple, sugar beet, carrot, celery or spinach juice. The ones who suffer from chronic constipation should eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies as they are a great source of natural dietary fiber essential for stimulating the function of our digestive system. Also, homemade remedies for constipation very frequently include suh ingredients as corn or olive oils known for their excellent purgative effects.

Besides, it is very important to add to your diet such foods as beans and oatmeal, which aid digestion and ease bowel movements. Also, it is very important to stimulate bowel movements by doing lots of physical exercises and leading an active lifestyle. Remember that using homemade remedies for constipation is more advantageous than using medications, because natural remedies can help you combat the problem but not only relieve it temporarily, like the most medications do.
