- Constipation causes a lot of problems, diseases as we all know. Well, I won’t go in detail.
- Instead i like to share few things Ayurveda recommend to help with constipation.
- Drink a glass of warm water in the morning. That’s the simplest thing to do. You can microwave your water. Or herbal tea is ok too.
- If you need exotic remedy, you can soak dry figs or few raisins into water over night. Clean copper vessel is recommended but if you don’t have one, just use glass bowl. In the morning, drink this water and eat raisin/ figs. Chew it well.
- Squate first and then go.
- Don’t read in toilet. Our bodies are smart. If you start reading, then it’s gonna think it’s time to read. So focus on the job.
- Greens or what we call “Bhaji” is rechak meaning it gives bowl movement. Include spinach and other cooked greens in your diet.
- Also cooked okra, green peas are good.
- Eat 1 tsp chia seeds everyday. You can soak in water for 10-20 mins and eat. Last 2 is my own observation.
