As an often occurring constipation can seriously impede your day to day life, You feel bloated and uncomfortable, you can try simple home remedies to relieve the discomfort and carry on your day to day activities.

What is constipation?
Constipation may be something that people like to keep to themselves, It is a situation, when everything in your body is sending repeated signals that it's time to move your bowels but, when you try to go nothing happens, your bowel is not moving at all Or, if you do push it finally, it hurts.

Constipation is defined medically as fewer than three stools per week and severe constipation as less than one stool per week. Many peoples find it difficult to pass stools and some feel a sense of incomplete emptying after a bowel movement. 

What are the Causes of constipation?
Constipation is a problem but not an illness. Constipation occurs for many different reasons. Stress, lack of exercise, certain medications, artificial sweeteners and a diet that's lacking fiber or fluids, under-active thyroid, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes and cancer, also can cause constipation. Even age is a factor. The older we get, the more prone we are to the problem. Constipation can be classified in two categories, acute and chronic.

The cause of each of these "types" of constipation probably is different, and the approach to each should be tailored to the specific type of constipation.

Acute constipation needs immediate medical attention as it may have been caused due to some underlying illness or if it is accompanied by worrisome symptoms such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain and cramps, nausea and vomiting, and involuntary 
loss of weight.

However, evaluating chronic constipation may not be urgent it may respond to simple home remedies. 

Natural Home Remedies for constipation
Constipation is a symptom of decreased frequency in bowel movements, usually because it contains less water than normal. In some cases it can be caused by certain medications. You can relieve constipation fairly rapidly, using natural means and items available almost in every household.

1) Water is your friend
Water is one of the best liquids that washes away the unwanted wastes and toxins out of your body other liquid options like juices or aerated drinks can't compare against water regardless of how healthy and natural they are, so when you get up- drink 2 glasses of water first thing in the morning and soon you will feel things moving in your stomach. 

2) Guava is an excellent remedy for constipation. 
Guava contains soluble fiber in the pulp and insoluble fiber content in the seeds. They also help with the mucus production in the anus and with peristalsis (a series of contractions within the intestinal lining that helps the passage of food in the stomach)

3) Prunes are good at reliving constipation
Prunes are especially high in fiber and contain sorbitol, a stool-loosening sugar that naturally helps relieve constipation. Sorbitol is a mild colonic stimulant that helps reduce transit time of stool and thus decrease the risk of constipation. 

So eat prunes or drink a glass of prune juice when you feel constipated, It is better to eat prunes rather than drinking the juice as the sorbitol content is higher in fruit as compared to juice. But if you don't like the unique taste of prunes drink just 1 glass of prune juice and wait for some time, things will go down in your stomach.

4) Psyllium husk
Powdered psyllium is a quality source of supplemental fiber. Be sure to drink plenty of water, otherwise the fiber will form an obstructing mass, adding to your condition. Start with one rounded tablespoon of the powder stirred well into a glass of water or diluted juice.

5) Herbal teas can work wonders
In a stainless steel pot, boil desired amount of water. The moment it boils turn the heat off. Add the herbs like peppermint, ginger and alfalfa in an infuser, muslin bag or tea ball for a single cup or add one-three teaspoons of herbs per cup for larger amounts.Allow the herbs to infuse for up to 5 minutes. Drink 3-4 cups a day. For flavor-add lemon and sweeten with Stevia or organic honey.

6) Increase dietary fiber intake
The colon requires bulk for it to achieve healthy movement. Optimal intake of fiber is about 25-30 grams per day. The ideal combination of soluble fiber and insoluble fiber helps to absorb water and toxins and adds roughage to bulk up stool and sweep away built up debris in the intestinal tract.

Foods high in fiber are fruits such as apples peaches, raspberries and tangerines. Vegetables such as acorn squash, raw broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, black-eyed peas, cooked zucchini, kidney beans and lima beans.

7) Lubricate your colon with oils
Lubrication is essential for the smooth flow of stool out of the intestines. Essential oils such as olive oil, castor oil, flaxseed oil, borage oil and fish oil are ideal.

8) Triphala powder
Triphala is a traditional Ayurvedic Indian herbal compound used for constipation and poor bowel tone and is designed to support the body's natural cleansing process. It is one of Ayurveda's most important herbal formulas for thousands of years. 

Triphala is a balanced blend of three Indian Herbal Fruits: Harada, Amla, Behada. This combination of fruits is unique because the astringent qualities of the fruits serve to tonify the colon therefore promoting internal cleansing naturally. This is highly recommended for anyone doing a detox program.

9) Fastest remedy for constipation
The fastest and best remedy that has worked every single time I had constipation is drinking a cup of hot prune juice in a teaspoon of butter in it. And you find yourself dashing to bathroom in minutes.

10) Exercise for reliving constipation
If you just want some exercise technique for constipation try this. After a good large cup of hot water lie flat on your back, lift your hips and raise your legs high up in the air. Thrust your legs towards to your chest as far as possible. By this time you will already see the signs of the urge to go. 

You know, what I mean! Do this for a couple of minutes and get yourself completely relieved immediately.

Constipation is an entirely curable and manageable condition, all you need to do is keep some of the above home remedies in mind and you should be well on your way to a happy morning. If you already tried and nothing works you can try this homeopathic Constipation relief
