The naturopathy treatment of constipation involves a host of natural home remedies, determining the causes and remedial. Constipation is a universal digestive disorder spanning through people of all ages. Our modern lifestyle methodically diminishes the diversity of the gut microbiome. Easily digestible processed food starve gut microbes of essential nutrients. Laxatives get things moving but do not cure the underlying cause.
Naturopathy diet recommends a high fiber dose, at least 25 grams of fiber for women and 35gm for men. Add prune, raspberries, pears, apples, lentils, beans and almonds to daily meal. High fiber diet helps restore the balance in the gut and heals chronic constipation.
Supplement fibrous diet by adequate amount of fluid, for the proper absorption of the fiber in the digestive tract. The simplest fluid available is water. At Least 1.5-2 liters or eight glasses of water is recommended.
Feed your gut with good bacteria
Probiotics (healthy bacteria) and prebiotics (food for the bacteria) increase the level of beneficial bacteria in the gut which help streamline metabolic disorder like irritable bowel syndrome. Probiotic food are idly, yogurt and kefir
Avoid broad-spectrum antibiotics
Indiscriminate intake of antibiotics reduces bacterial diversity in the gut. Antibiotics do not distinguish between the good bacteria and the bad bacteria and kills both the bacteria indiscriminately. This leads to a chronic imbalance in the gut, which can trigger gastrointestinal problems.
The most effective Yoga to enhance digestion and help relieve constipation and inflammation is chakrasana, cobra pose, triangle pose etc. Nothing beats the health benefits of yoga. The benefits of 30minutes of regular walk is unprecedented.
Diet is the binary code of naturopathy treatment. Embrace leafy greens like spinach, kale and fibrous meal. The chlorophyll in green leafy vegetables is also known to decrease colon risk cancer.
