We all face so many problems and challenge in our life everyday but some where we feel confident that we can handle whatever comes in our way. But sometimes a very small problem can soil not only our mood but a whole day. And that is constipation.
As a temporary treatment for the time being laxatives can be used, but body becomes habitual of it in the long run when used regularly and suddenly we feel that effects are gone away. Doctors also warn not to use laxatives regularly. As an alternate therapy Yoga is a better option to get rid of constipation. The following asanas may prove beneficial to cure constipation:
- Bhujanghasana: Cures constipation by releasing gas from the body and improves digestion.
- Trikonasana: It eases to pass stool without any difficulty.
- Ardha Matsyendrasana: It stimulates digestive juices and benefits to cure constipation.
- Supta Vajrasana: It helps in digestion and provides relief from constipation.
All these yoga poses realign the abdominal movements and as a result there is no difficulty to pass the stool. The main aim of these asanas is to modify the human digestive system and therefore, one can get rid of constipation completely from the digestive system. It is recommended to take care of diet and adequate sleep in order to treat other ailments along with curing constipation, with the help of these yoga postures.
Doctors advise a constipation patient to avoid taking too much of tea, coffee or junk food. The diet must incorporate all necessary vitamins and minerals to make it healthy and balanced and at least 1.5 litres of water should be consumed by the person.
