Constipation is a condition that affects the large intestine, also known as colon. As a result of this condition toxins are accumulated in the body. Accumulation of toxins causes many health issues. Sometimes constipation may be caused by our lifestyle and the food we eat.
Fortunately, nature has provided us with some effective constipation remedies, including lemons, papaya, dates, figs, grapes, and honey. Here are some tips how to use them in order to sooth constipation.
Lemons are one of the greatest natural remedies for constipation. You need to slice a lemon and keep in overnight. Put it in such a place where it will be protected from insects. Keep in mind the lemon should not be refrigerated. On the next morning you should extract the juice and drink it.
Papaya is another effective constipation remedy. Blend its seeds with orange juice or apple juice and drink the mixture before you go to bed. A papaya slice will improve your digestion after a heavy meal and will help you treat constipation quickly and easily.
Dates and figs offer an effective treatment of constipation. If you prefer dates, you should blend five or six of them with a cup of milk. The mixture is drunk once a day. If you like figs, boil seven or eight figs in a cup of water and drink it before you go to bed.
Grapes offer a quick relief of constipation. You need to blend some grapes, but without the seeds, with a cup of milk. Drink this once a day, in the morning or before you go to bed.
