Find Soothing Relief with These
Constipation Cures

These are very important ancient constipation cures, but first you must stop taking any over-the-counter laxative. As with addictive drugs, laxatives must be increased over time in order to produce the needed effect. But this can cause your intestines to become unresponsive to drugs altogether.

Constipation can be a symptom of a more serious problem such as:

  • medication interactions
  • hormonal disturbances
  • thyroid disorders etc.

It can lead to hemorrhoids from straining and fissures caused by hard stool stretching the sphincter muscle.

If you suffer from chronic constipation, you need to make an appointment with your primary-care physician and to also take these cures seriously.

On the other hand, you could also be suffering from an abundance of parasites. Find out how you can eliminate parasites.

In the meantime, stop taking over the counter drugs while waiting for your appointment and increase your water intake, (read more on water below) add fiber and plenty of fruits and vegetables to your diet,

Right off the bat, I'm going to recommend Casgara Sagrada from Pure Herbs. If you take 2 of these tablets, be ready to run to the bathroom.

Also very importantly, you need to learn how to relax, especially your sphincter muscles. I suggest trying meditation.

Cure For ConstipationDrink Lots of Water
  • Water was one of the most easiest and effective constipation cures discovered by Bavarian Sebastien Kneipp, a renowned herbalist and hydro-therapist. He said to drink 2 glasses of cold water every morning on rising. In Germany, it was said to drink 8 glasses of water per day along with cleansing juice and herbal teas.

Read benefits of drinking water daily. The cold water starts peristalsis which is the movement of the digestive system that propels matter through it. You can also also add honey to the water. First add a tablespoon of warm water to the honey to dissolve it, then add cold water.

If your bowel movement is dry, you really need to drink more water.

  •  One of the best constipation cures is taking fiber, such as oatmeal - to prevent constipation eat oatmeal each morning. You can add raisins, apple and maple syrup - yum.But, if you take fiber, make sure you drink enough water so that the fiber does not bulk in your intestines.

Also add plenty of fruits and vegetables to your diet. Early Swiss herbalists believed that figs were effective. Figs are a good natural medicine - if you have chronic constipation, eat 1 or 2 dried figs each morning on an empty stomach. To keep parasites at bay, soak 2 white figs overnight and eat with your cereal in the morning.

  • Drink commercially-prepared Aloe juice in small quantities, following directions on the package. Aloe is an ancient plant used for both internal and external healing - externally for skin bruises and scars, internally as a powerful purgative.
  • Cloves were used by the Dutch as one of their constipation cures. 

Directions: Gently bruise 6 cloves to release essential oils to 2 tablespoons of hot water in a saucepan and simmer for about a minute. Add cold water to cover and steep for an additional 15 minutes. Strain and drink. Prepare this each morning.

  • Rice and ground walnuts were used by traditional Chinese healers for chronic constipation. 

Directions: Each day prepare 8 ounces of rice and 12 walnuts. Soak the rice over night. The next morning, bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil, throw in the walnuts and simmer for a few minutes. Grind the walnuts in a blender, add the rice and rice water. Puree. Take out of the blender, add a pinch or 2 of maple syrup and some water. Simmer the preparation until the walnut-rice mixture becomes sticky.

  • Ancient Greek doctors used the Arab senna plant as one of their constipation cures, it was one of the most powerful laxatives among their plant medicines. A standard senna concentrate is available in an over-the-counter product under the name of Senokot. Just follow the direction on the package.
  • Hawaiians used over 100 native plants to restore health and spirit among their people. Medicine healers had to spend 15 years in apprenticeship. An excellent Hawaiian constipation treatment involves watermelon pulp

Directions: For a watermelon fast to cleanse the body of waste materials, try eating small chunks of red watermelon all through the day.

  • Last but not least, one of the Ukrainian constipation cures that my mother used was sauerkraut (Kapusta in Ukrainian. She made it all the time in huge barrels. Kapusta was a part of our daily diet.

Apparently, Chinese doctors also prescribed fermented cabbage, as one of their constipation cures saying that if you ate it twice a day, it would produce normal bowel movements in a month. (Sauerkraut, works for me immediately.)

Directions: Drain and reserve the liquid from a jar of sauerkraut (recommended Polish version). Add an equal amount of water to the liquid and drink it.

As a dish, I often fry onions and garlic mixed with sauerkraut and simmer with Polish sausage (Kilbassa). Hmmmm, yummy!

Caution. Do not use it if you are sensitive to salt or have high blood pressure.

Try These Natural Constipation Cures

Beet Juice, one of the Constipation Cures

If your diet is high in animal fats and refined sugars, this could be causing your constipation. I suggest you cut down these foods.

Have you had your thyroid gland checked? A sluggish thyroid can cause chronic constipation.

If you have a juicer, drinking beet juice regularly is one of the great constipation cures. The cellulose content helps to ease bowel movements.

Nutritionally, beets are loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. Beet greens have a higher content of iron compared to spinach. They are also an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and iron.

You can also add warm prune or apple juice with your breakfast along with a high-fiber cereal, or take 1 to 2 tablespoons equal amounts of bran, applesauce and prune juice daily. 

For an excellent snack, take yogurt, Kefir, or buttermilk with grated apple and top with pumpkin seeds. This is a great probiotic for your digestive system because it adds "microflora" which contains glutamine.

I take 1 tablespoon of Kefir every morning, and my digestive system works very smoothly. As soon as I stop taking Kefir, I experience problems.

You can also try BIO-K Plus which has 50 billion active and efficient acidophilus. Actually I'm also taking BIO-K too. This is wonderful stuff, but before taking it you have to make sure that you are not longer constipated, otherwise this will aggravate your system.

Two of the most important constipation cures are:

 1) exercise. Whatever exercise you like to do, it is important that you do it daily. Try walking around a block in your neighborhood, or biking, or taking the stairs instead of an elevator where you shop.

You will be amazed at how easily

 2) walking will increase the chances of a bowel movement. Walking massages all of the intestines causing them to work instead of sitting all day long. Since I'm sitting for most of the day, I make sure to get up and walk around every hour or so.

If you are feeling bloated, to soothe your stomach take 1/2 teaspoon of ginger daily in your food, or grate 1/2 teaspoon of ginger root and steep in  hot water for 10 minutes. Strain then drink it.

It increases the peristaltic action of the colon and produces a semi-sold stool in about 6 hours. Be prepared to run to the bathroom once this kicks in. Must be avoided during pregnancy or by breast feeding women. As it is very fast-working, it is best to take this during the weekend at home.
  • Psyllium + 3 is an extract of Plantagao seeds which grows in Southern Europe and North Africa. The seeds are coated with mucilage (fiber) and become gelatinous with humidity. Psyllium gives volume to stools, cleans the colon and lubricates the bowels. Besides psyllium, this product contains Hibiscus flower, Alfalfa and Black Walnut.

    I suggest Depurative Formula which is great for cleansing your digestive track, and Casgara Sagrada is an excellent formula for curing constipation. When you take this formula, you have to make sure you are near a bathroom.

    You do not suffer any side effects from taking these herbal remedies.

    Both are from Pure Herbs. To order  contact me.

    If you are ready to start a body cleansing program eating fruits and vegetables and drinking water for a weekend, read body cleansing detoxification.

    These products are all good for releasing causes of constipation. But if your condition is as a result of an illness, it is recommended that you see your doctor.

    If you over-use laxatives, it can cause chronic constipation.

    You can try one of the natural herbal formulas I mentioned above from Les Herbes Pures a Canadian company specializing in 100% natural herbal liquids or Pure Herbs Ltd. in the US.

    I have been taking these natural products for years and am a distributor.

    Note: I suggest that you try the remedies and use the one that works for you, and if neither of them work after a few days, you have a medical problem. Then it is time to see your primary care physician for help.
