Suffering With Constipation? Try Using Ayurvedic Treatment For Constipation

Constipation is an issue that we all have faced every now and then. However, its definition varies widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements several times a day while others have them only once or twice a week. Even after passing stools 2-3 times a day, few people have a feeling that they have not emptied their bowels. Many face difficulty while passing stools because it’s dry and hard and every visit to the toilet is a painful experience for them.

How do you cope up with this common yet difficult problem? Use an over-the-counter laxative to ease your bowel movement? If you do so, we have a safe and natural solution for constipation. To know about it, read on this blog.

Ayurveda – A Safe & Natural Solution For Constipation

While over-the-counter laxatives and medicines can provide relief from constipation, please keep in mind that not all laxatives are safe for long-term use. Overuse of certain laxatives can cause drug dependency and decrease bowel function. If you use them frequently for months or weeks, they can even decrease your colon’s ability to contract and worsen constipation. Do you still want to go for them or try something as natural, reliable and safe as Ayurveda?

Ayurveda lays great emphasis on the health of your digestive system. It is the root of all diseases. Your gut health has even power to affect your emotions and mental health. Ayurveda treats digestive problems from its root. It not only alleviates the discomforting symptoms but also strengthens your digestive system.

Ayurvedic treatment for constipation begins with first identifying the underlying cause behind it for each individual and then offers a personalised treatment plan that is tailor-made to your unique body system. Ayurveda focuses on balancing your vitiated doshas (vata dosha in case of constipation) by suggesting a natural Ayurvedic remedy for constipation, a natural diet plan and several lifestyle recommendations that eradicate the problem from the root. As a result, Ayurveda not only sets you free from constipation but also strengthens your digestive power and improves the overall quality of life.

Ayurveda has herbs like amla, haritaki and senna that have natural laxative and bowel cleansing properties and are used in formulating Ayurvedic medicine for constipation. They do not cause any side effects and clears the digestive tract of accumulated waste and toxins. One such example is Triphala, a mixture of three potent herbs - amla, haritaki and bhibhitaki. Triphala churna is an ancient Ayurvedic formulation and a well-known natural Ayurvedic remedy for constipation. It helps detoxify the body channels and keeps the digestive tract working efficiently.

Lifestyle Tips & Diet Plan for Constipation

Besides medication, a few healthy diet and lifestyle changes relieve constipation for many people. Below mentioned tips might help you -

  1. Drink adequate water as dehydration or drinking less water can make stools harder thereby leading to constipation.
  2. Stress is a key factor for causing constipation that often gets ignored. So, work on reducing your stress levels by incorporating meditation or deep breathing exercises into your routine.

  4. Don’t suppress natural urges such as stool or flatus.
  5. Have regular sleep & diet schedule.
  6. Add fruits, vegetables and fibre-rich foods to your diet. Use spices like ajwain (carom seeds) and jeera (cumin) in cooking.
  7. Avoid tea, coffee, carbonated or alcoholic beverages, junk foods, fried food, processed food or spicy food.
