Home Remedies for Constipation

Water

Drink at least 8 cups of water daily. Proper hydration can help soften stool and stimulate bowel movements.

Fiber-Rich Foods

Incorporate fiber-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet. Fiber helps add bulk to stool, making it easier to pass.

Prunes

Eat 4-5 prunes or drink a glass of prune juice. Prunes contain both fiber and a natural laxative called sorbitol.

Exercise

Engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily. Physical activity can stimulate bowel movements.

Probiotics

Take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic-rich foods like yogurt. Probiotics can help balance gut bacteria, aiding digestion.

Flaxseeds

Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds to a glass of water and drink. Flaxseeds are high in fiber and can aid in digestion.

Olive Oil

Take 1 tablespoon of olive oil on an empty stomach in the morning. Olive oil acts as a natural lubricant for the digestive system.

Lemon Water

Mix the juice of one lemon into a glass of warm water and drink it on an empty stomach. Lemon water can stimulate the digestive system.

Caffeinated Coffee

Drink a cup of caffeinated coffee. Caffeine can stimulate the muscles in the digestive system.

Herbal Teas

Drink herbal teas like peppermint or chamomile. These can help relax gastrointestinal muscles, aiding digestion.

Epsom Salt

Dissolve 1-2 teaspoons of Epsom salt in a glass of water and drink. Epsom salt can soften the stool and make it easier to pass.

Ginger or Turmeric Tea

Brew a tea using ginger or turmeric. Both of these roots can help stimulate digestion and relieve constipation.

Abdominal Massage

Use your hands to gently massage your abdomen in a circular motion. This can help stimulate bowel movements.

Fennel Seeds

Chew on a teaspoon of fennel seeds after meals or make fennel tea. Fennel can act as a natural laxative.

Aloe Vera Juice

Drink a cup of aloe vera juice. Aloe has natural laxative properties.

Baking Soda

Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a quarter cup of warm water and drink quickly. Baking soda can act as an antacid and help in moving the stool.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into a large glass of water and drink. Vinegar can help to stimulate the digestive system.

Castor Oil

Take 1-2 tablespoons of castor oil on an empty stomach. Castor oil acts as a stimulant laxative.
