Question: how to deal with constipation
Answer: Eat a high-fibre diet that contains lots of wholegrain cereals, wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables. This will provide you with roughage to aid your digestion. You should also drink at least 1.5 litres (2.6 pints) of water every day. Don’t rely on taking bran to avoid constipation, unless you also drink a lot more fluids. Without extra water, bran will bulk up your poo, making it hard and less able to pass along your intestines. Large amounts of bran may also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients from your food.  Staying active and exercising will help to prevent constipation. Walking, swimming or aquanatal classes, gentle cycling on an exercise bike, or pregnancy exercise classes can all help.  Practising yoga positions can keep constipation at bay, and Pilates is particularly helpful. These exercises tone your inner tummy muscles, which help to keep your bowels moving.  Cut out drinks that make you wee more often, such astea, coffee, and cola. These diuretics may dehydrate you and make your constipation worse.

Question: how to deal with constipation 😣
Answer: here are some natural remedies which should do the trick. 1: When you get up in the morning, drink a glass of warm water with lemon. 2: Take a tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil before each meal. The oil which help soften and lubricate the stool. 3: Until you clear your bowels limit your meals to fresh fruits such as apples and pears with skins , soups, salad vegetables like grated carrots with skins, nuts, seeds like sunflower and pumpkin and legumes such as black beans and chick peas (think hummous), and other easily digested protein such as eggs. Once your bowels have cleared you can go back to a more varied diet with meat etc. 4: Go for a long walk (or a repetitive walk close to the toilet). 5: Take a glass of warm water or herbal tea with a tablespoon full of psyllium husks before going to bed. Psyllium husks are a natural fibre which will move through your digestive tract and soften your stool. 6: Stew on the stove half a cup of dried fruits such as apricots or prunes with a cupful of water. Cook till the fruit is soft and then mash it and eat the whole thing including liquids in the morning before eating anything else. 7: Have a tablespoon of molasses and raw honey every day. 8: Take a probiotic daily. 9: Avoid caffeinated drinks. Although they might help move the bowel initially, because they are diuretic, they compound the problem by causing dehydration. Diuretics can be dangerous in pregnancy. 10: Go to the toilet when you have the urge, don’t put it off. 11: To ease the stool passing, rub some organic oil (e.g. virgin coconut oil) on your bottom area. Where to buy coconut oil? Drinking enough water (ideally filtered to get out the nasties) and having enough exercise are also important for keeping your bowels going. If you can go for a walk every day (even for 20 minutes), this can help quite a bit.
