Constipation is a common issue that many people avoid discussing. It's essential to know about constipation as it could be a huge sign of your current health status. Constipation is due to stress, poor diet, lack of water and the presence of fungi or bacteria. Eliminating constipation is simple. Below are just some of the most simple, but very effective ways to help get your bowels moving.

Create a Routine

Routine can drastically improve constipation. To encourage a healthy bowel movement, your morning might include 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar in warm water, followed by a smoothie with fiber, such as chia seeds.

Add Spices and Herbs to Your Meals                                                                   

Certain spices and herbs nourish digestive organs like the spleen, stomach, liver, and kidneys as well. The natural herbs enhance the breakdown of food and could dislodge the waste which clings to the intestinal wall. Put them into your meals, teas, smoothies, salads and slow-cooked dishes daily. Some good examples of herbs and spices are ginger, oregano, turmeric, cayenne, rosemary, black pepper, cumin, cloves, and coriander seeds.

Increase the Intake of Fiber

Each meal must contain a part of food rich in fiber such as cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, chia seeds, broccoli, berries, ground flax seeds, as well as avocado. Fiber also assists in moving waste through your digestive system. This is also ideal for gut bacteria. A healthy gut is very important for healthy bowel movements.

Consume Probiotics and Prebiotics

These serve as the foods as well as the fertilizer of gut bacteria, thus stimulating their development, as well as promoting healthy bowel movements. Foods rich in probiotics are asparagus, green (raw) banana, artichokes, as well as brown rice. Ideal sources of probiotics include kombucha, fermented vegetables, kimchi, and sauerkraut as well as apple cider vinegar. Slowly include the probiotics, such as fermented veggies, kimchi and sauerkraut in your daily diet to let your gut adapt to the new bacterial environment.

Drink Lots of Water

Water can flush out waste. The amount of water depends on the activity levels of the person. You should aim to drink half of your bodies weight in water daily. 

Practice Yin Yoga

If you have been holding onto pain and misery and not capable of letting go in life, yin yoga could help you feel better by helping you to reduce stress and anxiety, as well as stimulating a bowel movement through movement.

Express Yourself

When you are holding on to previous emotions or memories, then it can result in anxiety. Thus, your bowel movements become sluggish and you keep and recycle your waste, collecting toxins, developing bad breath, and all kinds of other conditions.
