Constipation Relief. No one ever wants to experience the
discomfort of constipation but unfortunately sometimes it is a
reality of life. Often times constipation is the result of not
getting enough fiber and roughage in the diet.
To improve this problem simply take a close look at what you
are eating on a regular basis and resolve to make fiber more a
part of your daily eating routine.
One of the best foods to treat constipation is to eat bran,
and in particular rice bran and to drink as much fluid as
possible (with the emphasis being on water). Bran needs water
to work properly and vice versa. You should aim for at least
six to eight glasses of water on a daily basis.
It is recommended that you do not bombard your digestive
system with a tremendous amount of fiber right away but start
adding a little bit of it gradually each day. The body needs
time to adjust to the addition of fiber to the system,
especially when you are not inclined to consume much at
Fluid needs to accompany fiber because the fiber is likely
to absorb a great deal and the fluid will then in turn be able
to bulk up the bran that is being eaten. Why this works so
effectively at combating constipation is that bran has rough
edges and it is these rough edges that serve to stimulate the
nerve endings in the bowel to start working to eliminate waste
and in particular to increase the work of the colon.
Bran is also beneficial to increase the amount of bulk that
makes up the stools. Not everyone is aware of this and
researchers have no idea why it works but hot coffee, whether
it be decaffeinated or regular helps to treat

If you are constipated uncommon awakening drink six ounces
but make sure you do so on an empty stomach so drink the coffee
before you eat your breakfast. The good aspect of this remedy

For reasons that have researchers baffled, the
coffee for constipation cure works more effectively for women
than it does men. Prunes and prune juice have long been used as
a treatment for constipation. The amount that is required to
help a person tends to vary with the individual situation. The
worse your constipation is, the more prunes or prune juice you
will need to consume. It is unclear why prunes are effective
when it comes to relieving constipation.
