Digestive problems? This helps!

Digestive problems and constipation:
A constipation is a sign that something is wrong with the body. Constipation is when you have less than three times a week bowel movement, the chair is quite hard and lumpy – because so long in the intestine – and if you have to press hard.
But a problem rarely comes alone! As a result, digestive problems are often accompanied by headaches, migraines, loss of appetite, pressure and distress. Causes of constipation?
Not only medication, but also a disorder in the salt balance of the body can cause constipation. In addition, it can also be caused by a nervous or hormonal disorder or intestinal disease.
If the constipation causes severe discomfort, or accompanying symptoms such as blood in the stool occur, a doctor must be consulted! Prevent constipation:
1. Fiber-rich diet! That means eating a lot of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. 2. Eat at rest and chew every bite well. 3. Lots of exercise! People with a lack of exercise are more prone to digestive problems and constipation! 4. Drink a lot! This means that at least 1.5 to 2 liters of liquid per day should be drunk. 5. Do not suppress the bowel movement and take enough time on the toilet. Home remedies for constipation 1. Abdominal massages, plum compote, grapes, dried plums, or figs and water on an empty stomach are the most common home remedies. 2. Coffee can also trigger the defecation reflex. 3. A glass of lukewarm water after getting up. 4. Yoghurt with flaxseed, psyllium, bran also help in a special way. 5. Laxatives from the pharmacy, which should only be used in an "emergency" and not regularly. Undesirable are agents with the active ingredients macrogol, lactulose and lacitol. Stronger are those preparations enriched with senna leaves, sodium picosulfate and bisacodyl.
