Try Yoga for Chronic Constipation

Chronic constipation may perhaps be the main cause of most ailments common to humans. From the common cold, acne to even depression, avoiding constipation may perhaps be the first step for prevention of illness.

It must be noted that the average person is constantly carrying 10-15 pounds of un-eliminated feces in their bowels. This in itself has a toxic effect on the blood stream. Experts in autopsy have stated that in 60-70% of the colons examined, foreign matter such as worms and decades old feces-stones have been found still present within.

Now, Chronic Constipation may be caused by:

1. Failure to pay attention to the desire for bowel movement.

2. Lack of sufficient fruits and vegetables in the diet.

3. Lack of fluids by not drinking enough water. (Not just liquids as in sodas and alcohol!)

4. Poor food combinations and consumption of mucus forming and hard to digest foods.

Obviously, a healthier and wiser choice of dietetic habits could help in combating constipation, but to even make this endeavor more successful, some physical actions may come in handy towards aiding one in reliving the body of excess debris in the alimentary canal.

When it comes to chronic constipation, the following Yoga Poses can and will definitely come in handy in regards to alleviating constipation problems.

1. The Bow Pose

2. The Shoulder Stand

3. The Peacock Pose

4. The Abdominal Lifts

5. The Breathing Exercises.

These poses specifically target the abdominal region of the body and in executing them; one finds a natural remedy for constipation.

Adequate information on these poses can be found on several Yoga sites online or you can fire up your favorite search engine and get the information on them.

Nonetheless, if combating constipation is a much needed process you need to undertake, then Yoga as a choice for physical treatment (externally) along with other methods will not hurt and could possibly help immensely.

Here? s to health and wellness.
