Constipation Cure - How to Get Rid of Constipation Fast

Updated on January 31, 2015

Constipation During Period or Pregnancy

Constipation is a very common condition that tends to affect women more often than than men. It generally appears in women just before their period or during pregnancy. It is normally not very serious although occasionally, complications can occur if the condition is not treated.

Symptoms of Constipation

  • Stomach ache and cramps
  • Change in your normal bowel pattern
  • Headaches
  • Furred tongue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue and depression
  • Feeling bloated
  • Feeling sick

Causes of Constipation

According to Ayurvedic medicine, constipation is generally caused due to aggravation of vata. But it can also be caused due to aggravation of pitta or kapha.

It is mainly caused by poor eating and bowel habits. In other words, by eating too much food that's hard on the digestive system, not eating enough fibrous food, like fruits and vegetables, irregular sleeping pattern, mental tensions, etc. All of these can cause constipation.

How to Get Rid of Constipation Fast and Naturally

The best laxative is triphala. When used as a laxative, triphala strengthens the colon. Other laxatives are harsh on colon, which may cause worse symptoms down the road. Triphala balances your metabolism, thereby ensuring more nourishment to blood. Take a teaspoon of triphala powder at bedtime.

Triphala is basically an ayurvedic medicine that is popular known as rasayana or the rejuvenator. It consists of three herbs:

  • Amla (Emblica officinalis)
  • Harada (Terminalia chebula)
  • Behada (Terminalia belerica)

Triphala is a great herb for digestive problems. It not only works as a mild laxative but also helps in improving the peristaltic movements in the gastrointestinal tract. It stimulates the liver to secrete bile juices that are very essential for fat metabolism.

According to ayurvedic practitioners, it is one of the best colon cleansers and is highly recommended as a treatment for constipation. It helps to detoxify the body and has gained popularity as a mild laxative.

In addition to Triphala, you should also include fruits like papaya, mango, banana, grapes, oranges, apple, etc in your diet. Carefully chew your food. Do not eat spicy, frozen food items. Avoid food items that have preservatives.

Food prepared with cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric and fennel as condiments are good to eat because they are easily digested.

How to Get Rid of Constipation Fast at Home

  1. Honey and Lemon. Try drinking a glass of warm water with 1 teaspoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon or lime in the morning before you eat or drink anything else.
  2. Raisins, figs, dates or prunes. Integrating these fruits into your diet can help in relieving constipation fast.
  3. Eat at least 350 grams of grapes each day. The combination of the properties contained in the grapes, namely cellulose, sugar, and other organic material it a natural laxative and helps to cure constipation.
  4. Bael fruit. Bael fruit is considered one of the best all-natural laxatives. It can also clean and tone up a person's intestines. Eating it regularly for 2 to 3 months will even help to get rid of old accumulated faecal matter.
  5. Liquorice. Chewing a few sticks of liquorice (mulathi) each day is also beneficial as this is a natural laxative. It is a very useful remedy for constipation.
  6. Psyllium husk. Just before going to bed, put 3 teaspoons of psyllium husk (Sat Isabgol) into a cup of warm milk or water and drink.
  7. Eat more fiber. Substitute white rice with brown rice and have a fiber cereal in the morning.
  8. Avoid refined foods. Avoid food items that are overcooked, refrigerated, preserved or canned. Replace refined starch food items with whole grain food items.

Foods to Avoid in Constipation

There are many types of foods that can cause constipation. You should limit or eliminate your intake of these foods in order to prevent the onset of constipation symptoms. While constipation can occur in anyone and is not a serious illness, repeated bouts of constipation can lead to more serious illnesses.

Sometimes constipation is a side effect of a medication or illness. If you are taking medication that has constipation as a side effect or have an illness with constipation as a symptom, you should try to avoid foods that make the risk of constipation higher.

Here are some common foods that cause constipation:

  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Ice Cream
  • Chips
  • Pizza
  • Instant mashed potatoes
  • Pastries
  • Cakes
  • Cookies
  • Fried Foods
  • Processed Foods
  • Wheat-based Foods
  • Red Meat
  • Dried Beans

In order to prevent constipation, you should avoid or limit your intake of dairy products, foods that are high in fat, foods that are high in cholesterol, and processed foods.

Foods for Constipation Relief

There are many foods that can prevent constipation and relieve its symptoms. In addition to the ones mentioned above, you should try eating:

  • Bran products: provides fiber to soften stools.
  • Guava: provides needed roughage.
  • Corn syrup: helps to soften stools.
  • Sugar: helps to soften stools.
  • Apple Pectin: provide natural fiber.
  • Folic Acid: insufficient intake of folic acid can cause constipation.

      Mamil ingredients can prevent kids constipation. Also, Mamil contains prebiotics oligosaccharide that helps maintain a good intestinal environment. It also contains 0% sucrose which means no sugar contain and will increase good bacteria for kids. It also has the highest level of DHA which is good for kids too! Only Mamil provided such many benefits for mothers

      why dont try S26? I think S6 is better than Mamil. Not only Mamil, S26 also can get free trial pack. The most attracted me is S26 has special flavor for picky children, i can avoid disciplining behavior from my kids. Did Mamil give this kind of offer for mothers?

      It could be your baby is lactose intollerant! It can happen even with breast fed babys. If your still having problem you may want to try a soy formula that is lactose free. I went through the same with my son. Good luck

      I think u can try using Mamil bcos I was facing the same prob previously, my DD also had hard stools, in fact it was very bad. Then I somehow managed to found out that Mamil has prebiotic that can prevent children constipation in long term and besides that, Mamil also has no sucrose and highest DHA level in the market now.. u can see the results within a week definitely..

      My SIL recommended Mamil formula for my boy as Mamil is suitable for children of all ages. Plus, Mamil contains prebiotics oligosaccharide that helps maintain a good intestinal environment. It also contains 0% sucrose which means no sugar contain and will increase good bacteria for cildren. If you think that Mamil is expensive, you can email to Mamil to request for free trial. Mamil will surprise you after you switched, trust me ;)

      no worries kang. i've faced this problem before. my daughter got constipated. after weeks, i've try out mamil and gave to her. in a week, her constipation prevented. i've used mamil because my sister had used mamil before. she suggested me because mamil better than others formula milk. it contained zero percent sugar and got more level of dha than others. plus, it contained good bacteria which can made the stool became more softly

      I believe not all the traditional remedies are working, most of them dont work on every children. Depending on whether ur kid can take it or not. There's once my LO got into hosp due to minor poisoning after consuming some chinese traditional herb given by my SIL which she used to give it to her son as well.. little kids stomach is very sensitive one u knw. never tried any traditional remedies after that.. I suggest u mothers here don't ever try unknown remedies unless its prescribed by doctors or medical consultants.

      Recently I noticed that my son has some abnormal changes. The first symptoms was he change the bowel pattern and he seem has a difficulty during every bowel movement. I ask him and he told me that sometimes he feel that his belly is hard and stomach ache every time after meal for an hour and he told me that lying on the bed gets better. I was so worried and share this story with my family. My sister told me that he might be facing constipation and advise me to change my formula milk because formula milk usually is the main cause of constipation. Now I'm here to seeking opinion whether my sister statement was truth and the mean time I need some suggestion regarding which formula milk that can help in preventing constipation? tq

      A lot of people are not aware that figs are actually natural laxatives. For people who are not too sure again what laxatives are, laxatives can make stools looser and can help prevent constipation? Most of the laxatives that can be seen right now has been mixed in with chemicals that might not be that healthy for the body. Figs are all natural so people do not have to worry about anything.There are a lot of tips for long- and short-term solutions to constipation here: http://naturalremedyideas.com/get-rid-of-constipat...

      I suffered a lot of discomfort (stomach always sore, always feeling backed up) for probably ten years. I finally stumbled across what worked for me, though I don't know if it will work for other people. I cut out soluble fiber from my diet (e.g. bran, psyllium). I still eat fruit and vegetables (insoluble fiber) but cut out all the high-fiber cereals. It has been a couple of years now and my life is so much better!

      I struggle with constipation from time to time (more often than not) and when I do, there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel! I found persistence helps me and waiting it out while eating the right foods and drinking water. Taking laxatives may get rid of constipation temporarily but it disrupts me from getting back to a normal bowel habit.

      At the moment I'm drinking 1/3 cup prune juice with half a cup of blackcurrant juice twice a day. I eat raw vegies during the day such as broccoli, pear, beans etc and brown rice at dinner with more vegies. I've taken out all preserved foods, white flour products and white rice and gone to fruits, dried fruits. I hate living like this especially because I have a bloated stomach! Does anyone else have a stomach like you're a few months pregnant after eating?

      just forget everything and do this--

      1) Drink warm water with 1/2 of a lemon squeezed in it 1st thing in the morning.

      2) Eat raw radish atleast 3 no's in a day.

      3)Avoid all outside and spicy food and all that written above that you are supposed to avoid at least for a week.

      4) don't drink any carbonated drinks or juices outside as this contain high amounts of sugar that body can't easily break down.

      5) Drink tender coconut water -- 3 to 4 times a day

      6) Put "BURNOL" ointment on the anus when it burns and also before going to sleep-- repeat until the anus is healed.

      7) Eat Blend food howmuchever possible..only salt--don't use pepper.

      8) Drink atleast 3 litres of water--preferably warm water everytime!

      9)Cut long soft bananas into slices-- mix it with 2 table spoons of ghee before going to sleep.

      For hard painful stool to come out -- try applying any oil generously directly on the anus before going to take a shit!

      Hope this works well...follow the diet strictly..

      NOTE: If the above remedy does not show any improvement in 3 days -- you can drink 3 to 4 table spoons of castor oil. This will work for sure!! You can't take oil if you have jaundice- hepatitis or are allergic to oil otherwise it will work wonders..!

      Do send me a mail if the above remedy worked for you or any other comments or opinion on: angeldmn7@gmail.com

      I would love to hear from you!

      Goodluck!!

      I have had this problem for a long time. I am 22 years old, eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, veggies, fiber, water, etc. My constipation is so bad that I once went without a bowel movement for a month and week. I've worked at a health food store for over 3 years so i am very well versed in natural remedies and laxatives. I'm reading people on this site complaining of being constipated for a day and think to myself "if they only knew". I began using Acidophilus Probiotic pearls that worked pretty well for about 3 months. They stopped working. I started using triphala capsules recently which worked the first time but never again. I even up'ed the dosage, still nothing. Bought aloe vera juice because i heard it "lubricated the large intestine" and people posted on different message boards about how it solved all their problems. I can't tell how well it is working, but it seemed to help a tiny bit. I try to drink coffee because it used to kick start the bowels but that stopped working as well. I sometimes uses Organic Smooth Move tea. The main ingredient is Senna, also some fennel, cinnamon, licorice, etc. It is the only thing that works so far. It still doesn't work on me as it does for other people who are occasional constipated, it just gets a little out for me. The only problem is that senna is linked to dependency, meaning your body can get reliant on the herb and eventually you wont be able to go to the bathroom with out, just like over the counter laxatives. I am very nervous of my condition because it is starting to effect the quality of my life. i know it sounds dramatic but the discomfort of living with constipation is greatly underestimated. I am constantly fatigued and sleep almost 12 hours a day, I wake up in a bad mood, feeling tired and bloated. when poked, my stomach makes a gurgling sound as if the stool is just sitting in there. When i finally have a bowel movement as result of the tea, i lose up to 5 pounds. I think it is time to go see a gastroenterologist, because is seems that there may be a very serious, underlying problem.

      I have been constipated for 7 days now. Not been bothered with constipation for ages. I usually take a mouthful of Syrup of Figs and it manages to move it. I also take an Aloe Vera tablet every day from Holland & Barrett. But recently I ate one carryout after another for about a whole week and never ate healthy at all. Fatty and unhealthy and red meat. NOT A GOOD COMBINATION!! Im sitting at home cause Im constipated. Had to go to the dr about it. I have tried everything ie a whole bottle of syrup of figs, a whole box of Fybogel, nearly 20 aloe vera tablets, a dulcolax tablet (which are usually very painful laxative), loads of water need I say more!! I still haven't been. So, the dr gave me senokot tablets and lactulose to take. so over the last two days I have taken six senokot tablets and half a bottle of lactulose and still NOTHING!!! I can feel gurgling in my stomach but still nothing ... I don't feel well now and am desperate to go ... its funny how it makes you feel sooo unwell. Any help other than prune juice people?? I need a fix straight away :-(

      I used to use chocolate laxative but it's not a cure for constipation. Have you tried different suggestions on this website Koolkat? Warm water with lemon in it, eating fruits such as pears, figs, paw paw, kiwi fruit or prune juice? Maybe you could tell your Mum to have a look at this website so she understands a bit better that other people are going through it as well and you're not the only one.

      I think different things will work for different people - it depends on the individual and best to give everything a go. I'm going to try Movicol. At the moment I'm trying prune juice (works well), eat figs every day, pears and paw paw! Also drink warm water with lemon! I have to change it from time to time as I get used to it!

      Pineapple, paw paw, kiwi fruit, pears, figs, prune juice, prunes, papaya and water works great! I've been constipated for about a year, off and on, sometimes not constipated for up to 7 days. I tried Psyllium husk drink in the morning and then one or two types of the above fruits with water and for about 2 months I've been going to the toilet twice a day EVERY day! It's been such a relief. Figs are great. I'd say give it a go especially the pineapple. And drink abot 1.5 to 2 litres of water throughout the day!

      i get constipated really badley but i eat fruit and chocolatates and it gets better. i have been constipated for a week before now. i take some tablets called senokot tablets which really help. Drink water with it and take two before bed and about mid-day try to go. It worked for me! If it works don't take anymore as you will get used to them and then you won't be able to go poo without them so try to go poo alone. if you don't go for two days take them again e.t.c. It also helps to be at home and it might take along time hours may be but be patient. Drink orange juice and water and fizzy drinks non-stop. hope this helps.

      I used to have severe constipation. But even since I've been taking Psyllium Husk (in a powder form) but you can get capsules, I am no longer constipated and go to the toilet every day without fail (sometimes up to 3 times a day without and straining or pain). It may not work for everyone, but certainly worth a try as it's best to solve the problem long term and have a 'normal' poo every day rather than going through one off cleanses you have to take as drastic measures once you get all blocked up and constipated. I also eat prunes every day and drink lots of water. Hope this helps!

      GUARANTEED HOME REMEDY MOST EFFECTIVE :-

      every night take 2 teaspoonful of sat isabgol (psyllium husk)with warm enough water or milk,,,,i recommend water nd sleep. in morning,,,,drink a cup of tea (acc. 2 me tea helps to force it),,,90 % chance it'll came out easily,,,,,,,,wait for 1/2 an hour,,by chance if doesn't,,,,,here is a trick,,,,,,drink plenty of room temperature water until it comes 2 ur neck,,,,wait a min,,,,,burps,,,,leave those airs,,,,,than drink again fill upto the neck,,,,wait again to burp,,,than fill again iff there's some margin. drink as much as u can nd see its impact ur self,,,, it will throw ur stool out wid a tremandous force guaranteed. the logic is psyllium makes smooth stool packets nd water makes it more smooth.

      CAUTION :- no need 2 use xpensive husks,,,buy as cheapest as u get i recommend SAT ISABGOL of sidhpur.

      don't use psyllium husks if having colitis problem,,,,,it will make it worse,,,,,bware.

      iff very chronic constipation,,,, don't take psyllium husk,,,,1st take KAYAM CHURAN ( a senna product) or any senna product 1st 2 days,,,,,it will throw ur stools out then start taking psyllium nd make it routine,,,,,,,it's totally safe. don't use senna products regular bcas harmful on intestines.

      Eating fruit & exercise is important. Also you might want to try praying, to see if there is a deeper reason for your infirmity. Repent & make amends on God's terms, & that's the fastest way to be cured! However sometimes God allows us to experience problems.2 CORINTHIANS 12:Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

      After a weightlifting injury, I developed an anal fissure. Hard stools kept the fissure from healing. I made some major changes in my diet this week that have really softened my stools and kept the fissure from re-tearing. Here's what I added to my diet:

      -I eliminated soda and am drinking at least 48 oz. of water a day.

      -Lots of nuts - at least a half of a can of almonds, cashews, and macadamia nuts per day.

      -I eat a fruit salad eat night at dinner, and I've added a heaping tablespoon of shredded coconut to that salad.

      -For breakfast, and organic oat bran oatmeal. Once it's cooked, I add a heaping tablespoon of wheat bran.

      -I eliminated cheese from my diet (which was painful!)

      I don't know which element of the diet is working the best to really soften the stool (I think the hard amount of nuts is helping the most) but combined, I'm not having any issues with the fissure re-tearing.

      I also take one hot sitz bath each night, 2-3 stool softeners, and use some natural healing oil meant to treat fissures. (These three things alone weren't helping without the diet changes.)

      I hope someone else can make these changes and see some benefits.

      There is definitely hope!

      I have been going through everything that everyone has experienced with constipation. The best way I can describe my constipation is like the pain of not just trying to push out a rock or a dozen hard sharp rocks but the discomfort, bloated feeling you feel. I have been using Dieter's Nutri - Leaf Herbal Tea for about 2 months. It works so well. It is the only thing that has ever worked for me. I had cramping at first and sometimes still do. I drink it at night and it works by morning. I hope everyone gives the Tea a go. It is such a relief.

      To help with the cramping I get I use BUSCOPAN - over the counter relief for stomach cramps and spasms. It has Hyoscine Butylbromide in it. Hospitals use it for stomach/pelvic pain as well.

      I realised I don't have to suffer from constipation and pain and I realised eating fiber and a healthy diet isn't just the answer!

      I ordered and tried COLOCAP Balance just yesterday (after reading the advice posted by Anna). Thank you Anna, it has already begun working and the pharmacy told me it would help regulate everything more normally. I thought I was the only one drinking the Herbal Tea, but the Health food shop told me a lot of people use it also. I'm so glad it gives you the most needed relief as it does for me! I am so glad you gave the information about Colocap.

      From a very relieved person.

      Anna_J 6 years ago

      I hope I can help, as so many of you out there, I've suffered pain and constipation for years, and I got to such a point where I was so desperate I was really frigtened. Normal advice, including Doctor's just didn't work for me so I did everything I could to search for answers myself, and tried heaps of remedies online, from juice mixtures to enema's to everything, but nothing worked!

      And yes, I eat a lot of fibre, fruit and vegies,water,exercise etc. so understand what everyone is saying when that doesn't work for some, some of us for various reasons need drastic help!!!

      I have Two tips (or remedies)that practically saved my life. (Seriously, I would be very sick today if I hasn't been told about these). And after years/months of trying various pharmaceutical methods, mixtures and enema's and every laxative available, I was CERTAIN NOTHING WOULD EVER WORK!!!! BECAUSE NOTHING EVER HAS!

      I sopke to a pharacist who told me her daughter had the same problem, after I began buying packets of salt mixtures that people use to clean themselves out before they go into hospital for a Colonoscopy. (warning- these do not work properly) I was desperate and was thinking i'd have to book a professional Colon cleansing treatment. (In the emergency room, the doctor's were so dismissive & also made me feel very humiliated, and I was in so much pain, bloated and really blocked up!)

      Anyway, this pharmacist told me about two products that CURED her daughter (I was so dubious) but if I hadn't tried them a year ago, I'm SURE I'd have developed SERIOUS PROBLEMS by now, this is NOT A CONDITION TO TAKE LIGHTLY-NEVER LET ANYONE CONVINCE YOU OTHERWISE! I was so sure I'd develop bowel Cancer, or else die of the pain.

      PLEASE, PLEASE TRY THESE- THEY ARE A CURE FOR ME- AND IF IT WORKED FOR ME! IT WILL HELP ANYONE!

      1. DIETER'S NUTRI-LEAF HERBAL TEA. (herbal Laxative tea)

      Please don't dismiss this like I did at first!!!! I BEGAN BY DRINKING THIS TWICE A DAY & COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH IT WORKED- PLEASE GIVE IT A TRY! It may cause bad cramps at first, but after a few weeks, if you have a cup every morning, you will go NORMALLY. I never miss it! Contact NUTRI HEALTH FOOD CENTRE, EMAIL:info@nutrihealthfood.com.au, www.nutrihealthfood.com.au or if in australia ph: (03) 9543 7772. In australia, it's sold in Health food stores and is in a green packet with black writing. I pay $12.99 for 30 teabags....and it's VERY POPULAR- NOT FOR DIETING, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE RELY ON IT. the ingredients are all listed in the website, but it DOES WORK.

      2. I also was advised to start taking a Colon cleanse called COLOCAP Balance-because this works long-term, drawing fluid INTO the intestines, and training the muscles etc. to work again. I need this just as much as the Tea, but less often once you're unblocked and finally getting back to normal. I'm sure this product would be available in the USA, http://www.colocappharma.com/ please try it!

      If you've suffered years of constipation, this may take a week or more before it begins to work, but when it does work, the relief is unbelievable, and more importantly, it works PROPERLY-NOT SUPERFICIALLY. (i'll paste some info below).

      hope this helps- don't give up!

      Anna

      Colocap Balance™ is an innovative concept in the area of bowel health.

      Colocap Balance™ capsules contain Magnesium Sulfate as an active ingredient. Both the Magnesium and the Sulfate in Magnesium Sulfate draw water into the intestines, making it a powerful saline laxative which aids in flushing waste from the body.

      Saline laxatives do not directly stimulate intestinal muscles, but act by gently washing the colon and flushing waste from the body.

      Colocap Balance™ offers you an innovative formulation of concentrated Magnesium Sulfate, dried and encapsulated to give you an easy-to-take and palatable natural laxative.

      Hi,

      I've also been suffering from constipation since birth.Fibrous diet never worked for me.After doing a lot of research I found that having lots of butter or ghee with everything you have makes you get rid of constipation no matter what you have.But avoiding stuffs made of flour is advisable ,else top them up with lots of butter.This should work as it worked for me!Sometimes fibrous diet causes more constipation as it happened in my case.... don't know why?Also drink plenty of water.I also found that change of place also helps sometimes as the water changes.Hard water worsens the problem.Hope this helps....GOOD LUCK.
