Infrequent bowel movements lead to abdominal
pain, reduce appetite, and bloating. If you haven’t had a stool, there are some ways you
can help your digestion and make yourself poop immediately. Start with the gentler methods
and try to adapt your diet and lifestyle. If the problem persists talk to your doctor. Drink a cup of warm water with lemon juice.
Drinking warm water with lemon juice can be especially helpful first thing in the morning,
but you can drink warm water with lemon juice any time during the day. Just add about one
teaspoon of lemon juice to a cup (8 ounces) of warm water. Sip the water slowly.
Drinking warm water with lemon juice should soften your stools and help you have a bowel
movement, but it may take a little while before it happens.
If constipation is a frequent problem for you, then you may want to consider starting
every day with a cup of warm water and lemon juice.
If you don’t have lemon juice, then you can also drink a cup of tea, coffee, or just warm
water to help get your bowels moving. Mix up an Epsom salt solution.
Epsom salts are approved by the FDA for use as a short-term laxative. If you have some
Epsom salts at home, then you can mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of Epsom salts into 8 ounces of
water and drink the solution. This should produce a bowel movement within 30 minutes
to six hours. You can also take a bath with Epsom salts
to help relieve your constipation. Fill a bathtub with warm water and add about one
cup of Epsom salts to the water. Your body will absorb the magnesium in the Epsom salts
through your skin. Eat some prunes or drink prune juice.
Prunes are well known for their ability to produce bowel movements. If you have some
prunes or prune juice around your house, then try eating or drinking some prunes to help
you have a bowel movement. You don’t need to overdo it, just have a few
prunes or one cup of prune juice. Two medium prunes contain about 2 grams of fiber and
a cup of prune juice contain about 5.2 grams of fiber.
If you are suffering from chronic constipation try apple juice and prune juice cleanse. Drink
2 or 3 cups of prune juice in the morning on an empty stomach. A little bit later this
drink a cup of apple juice. This combination will certainly assist you in relieving your
constipation and make you poop immediately. Try a baking soda solution.
A mixture of baking soda and water may also help to relieve your constipation. Mix a teaspoon
of baking soda with ¼ cup of water and drink the solution. This remedy can also help to
relieve gas or an upset stomach along with your constipation.
Keep in mind that baking soda is high in sodium so this remedy is not ideal for people following
a low-sodium diet.
