Well, have you gotten rid of the wastes from the holidays?
Says the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse in the US (an office of the National Institutes of Health), we should have at least 3 bowel movements per week.
Some health experts say you should at least have once or twice a day. Remember, the longer the waste stays in your bowel the more it can harm your body system. Human wastes are toxic. Actually, poison.
And the more the tendency to get fat.
You got to get them out.
The site WebMD says constipation is often due to lack of water in the stool. Sometimes, it can be simply remedied by drinking enough water daily. But sometimes too much water gets absorbed in the intestines and makes the stool hard, dry and small.
During long period of celebrations and eating, we tend to drink less. And if we do drink, we drink unhealthy fluids like softdrinks and beer, not water. As we do that as we age, we tend to get constipated later on in life.
So drink more water daily. That's the number powerful tip. Then add fibers in your diet--vegetables and fruits--like carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, asparagus, prunes, apricots, beans, and papaya, to name a few. The third and last tip--exercise daily and keep moving. Always be aware never to be idle for a whole hour. Take "moving breaks" by standing up and walking.
Don't forget that about 70 percent of our immune system relies on our digestive health. How to understand constipation better is relevant information.
