Here's How to Understand Constipation Better in 2016 and 3 Powerful Tips to Avoid It

homeguides.sfgate.com
The first 4th day of the year 2016 and here I am talking about constipation. Why? Because we ate a lot of foods during the holidays and we should have gotten rid of all the wastes by now. It's the fourth day since the New Year. So, we have to understand constipation better.

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.

But how?

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.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
