Foods that relieve constipation.
Best home remedies for constpation.
Constipation occurs in people of every age. It is common in patients with Crohns disease in remission stage (the stage when Crohns patients don't have symptoms). It’s very common in the elderly, women after 40 and in the patients with IBS.
Constipation is defined as less than two or three bowel movements a week as per traditional medicine. According to more natural and holistic medicine you should really have at least one to two bowel movements daily if your digestive system is functioning well.
I would recommend taking all possible steps in relieving constipation to anyone that has less than one bowel movement daily. Yes, less than one bowel movement daily is constipation. A lot of people and Crohn's disease patients don’t even realize that they are constipated.

There are many factors and illnesses, including Crohn's disease in remission, that cause constipation.
A lot of patients that ask for my opinion in the pharmacy want to go straight to the shelf and pick up a bottle with “magic” constipation relief.
Many of them don’t even want to hear about natural approach to constipation. Everyone just wants something that comes in a bottle. What are you going to do?
But it’s a shame because all the constipation relief that is available in the pharmacy is the kind that will only give you a temporary relief. The real root of the problem has to be addressed here.
Constipation relief is on its way. Just start paying attention…
Constipation relief can be achieved with success if the whole gastrointestinal system is working properly.
Constipation relief..Re-think your next trip to buy laxatives!
Buying a laxative in the pharmacy seems very simple to most people. The directions are self explanatory and a lot of over the counter drug labels say “safe and natural”. Is it that safe?
Many years Ex-Lax had phenolphthalein on the market. Those “chocolates” were so popular and lots of people loved the taste. Models used it to lose weight. Years later it’s off the marker for the suspicion of development of cancer. Now the brand of Ex-Lax uses senna as its active ingredient. It’s promoted as a natural ingredient but this is a stimulant laxative and it causes its own side effects. The body gets used to stimulant laxatives very fast and then when you stop the stimulant laxative; it takes a long time to restore normal bowel movement. And you are back in the vicious cycle trying to get constipation relief.
Another example about laxatives unsafety is an over the counter laxative called Fleet Phospho-Soda. It was used for years and only now the manufacturer voluntarily removed it from the market because of risk of kidney failure and association with severe, possibly even deadly dehydration in some patients. I personally used it for my colonoscopy preparation and almost ended up in the emergency room.
Bottom line, over the counter laxatives are not that safe and natural for continuous use. If you are looking for one time or short-term constipation relief it may be OK to use them. But always start from natural methods.

So try to use some prunes and add some water overnight and drink that liquid first thing in the morning. I recommend this only as an occasional constipation relief. This can also become habit forming.
But generally speaking, foods that relieve constipation are usually vegetables and fruits with high fiber, low sugar conent like broccoli, asparagus and kiwi. Some fruits have an excellent fiber conent but are so high in sugar like mangoes. Watch for that sugar. Don't overdo it.
Looking for constipation cures? It depends on what you can consider constipation cures. I think that constipation cures are foods, vegetable juices and natural products that keep you regular. Again, it depends on the idividual. For example, spinach can be constipating for you but work as a fiber laxative to someone else. That's why I do not believe in one cure for all. Be patient. Invest the time in yourself. Invest the time in your health. You can do it.
I wish you well!
