 A beautiful day everyone, hope you are enjoying optimal wellness.

Today, I'll be sharing ways to prevent Constipation.

Constipation can be described as a situation where a person passes less than three bowel movements a week or has difficult bowel movements. You eat food daily but you hardly go to the toilet regularly. Ideally, a person should have bowel movements at least once a day.


Here are a few causes of Constipation;

*Not drinking enough water or fluids.

*Not eating food rich in Fibre eg Oats, vegetables, fruits.

*Ignoring the urge to pass stool.

*Lack of physical activity.

*Eating too much sugar and unhealthy fats, junk foods, fizzy drinks, alcohol, etc

*A change in routine or lifestyle eg change in eating habits.


*Fewer than three bowel movements a week.

*Dry and lumpy stool

*Difficulty when passing stool

*Feeling that you haven’t completely emptied your bowel after being to the toilet.



Long term constipation can lead to complications

* Haemorrhoids (Piles): Swollen blood vessels that form in the lower rectum and abuse. As goes by, one can experience pain, itching, needle and pin sensation around the anus.

*Discomfort when passing out stool.

*Swelling of the rectum

*Rectal prolapse; part of the lower intestine falls out of place and protrudes from the anus.

*Rectal bleeding in severe cases when passing out stool.



*Drink water first thing in the morning at least a glass or two.

*Try and do some exercise to promote good blood circulation.

*Eat high fiber foods eg Oats, Beans, Kale, Sweet Potato, Lentils etc

*When passing out stool, sit and then bend forward, lift your heels..

*Go for natural dietary supplements that help to balance your daily nutritional requirement and also aid bowel movements.
