Here Is What Causes Constipation And Natural Ways To Get Rid Of It!

Constipation is mainly caused by bowel movements, due to lack of fiber, probiotics, hydration and vitamins, which allow bowels to move freely and properly. In medical terms, constipation is defined as fewer than three bowel movements per week, but lack of bowel movements in a period of two to three days is an indicator of mental distress for some people.

Causes of constipation
  1. Diet
The main cause of constipation is diet. Having a diet rich in junk food and lack of exercises cause disorder in your body, mainly in your digestive health. Some food that can make you feel digestive are: foods high in fat, refined foods, alcohol, dairy products as well as dehydration.
  1. Health problems or diseases
Another factor that can cause constipation is your actual health condition, whether you are going through a disease or not. IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome is the main cause of constipation. But, other health conditions, like diabetes, lupus, parkinson’s disease and even pregnancy can cause it.
  1. Medications
Usage of medications during a period you are going through a disease can cause constipation as well. The list of medications is as follows: Antidepressants, anticonvulsants and narcotic pain medications like codeine.

How to avoid constipation
The following tips can help you relieve from constipation in the easiest possible way, only by trying out some natural remedies.

Baking soda

It’s known as the best remedy for treating any kind of disease, baking soda can help getting rid of constipation. It is a bicarbonate, that forces air to come out of the body, to relieve you from the pressure. It can also neutralize the acid and make ‘things’ pass through the gut easily.


Olive oil can stimulate the digestive system to move things through the bowels, so the bowels won’t have to move. If you choose to take oil regularly, you might as well prevent constipation.


Just like olive oil, caffeine can stimulate the digestive system. Just a cup of coffee a day can force things to move through the colon, and avoid constipation in this way. On the other hand, coffee can stimulate urination more frequently, as of its diuretic properties.


Sometimes, bowels movements can be caused as a result of the friction, so they need to be lubricated in a proper way. Water can make this possible, helping in this way the proper function of the bowels.
But, the more water we drink, the more toxins flood the bowels and force it to make improper movements. So, if you want to avoid or relieve from constipation, you must take normal amount of water every day, in some cases, mixed with salt.


Lemon contains citric acid, which acts as a stimulant to your digestive system as well. It can also help your body relieve from toxins and undigested food along the colon. A lemon juice, mixed with water will definitely help your body so that everything will run smoothly.
Following these tips every day, can not only help you relieve from constipation, but also can reduce stress and clean your diet.

Also a good diet of fruits and vegetable daily will help, remember the ol'saying an apple a day, well I went on a diet of a large Macintosh apple a day, about a couple of hours before bedtime, and it solved the problem. also fruit smoothies so on....took about 3 to 4 days for the system to adapt, but it did work for me.
