Constipation is a very unpleasant medical condition that is mainly associated with poor bowel performance. There are several ways to treat constipation. Some of them are to have a diet consisting of special products that help clear the intestine from waste (fibre) and a regular intake of liquid in sufficient quantities. Certain exercises can help get rid of constipation, increase the working capacity of the intestinal tract and accelerate the passage of stool through the intestine. Strengthening the muscles of the intestine corrects its functionality.
One of the causes of constipation is hypodynamia, i.e. living a sedentary lifestyle. But what if you have a sedentary job? It is highly recommended to do regular physical exercises to maintain or increase the tone of the intestinal muscles, as it could even prevent or cure regular and permanent constipation. Certain exercises can also prevent constipation by decreasing the passage time of the stool through the large intestine. Colon hydrotherapy also positively affects the tone of the walls of the large intestine. Strengthening the muscles of the intestine corrects the path of stool masses through the colon. The longer the processed food is in the intestine, the more water is absorbed from the stool, thereby hardening it and making it more difficult to excrete it, causing constipation.
Doing physical exercises regularly can be the only way to get rid of and treat constipation, as it naturally strengthens and stimulates contractions of the intestinal muscles to move the stool through the body more quickly. Any grown adult can very simply just get up and do simple daily warm-up sessions, that most people have done at school, to get rid of constipation (if they have it).
Walking for 10-15 minutes several times a day also normalizes the functionality of the digestive system.
Aerobic exercises, like jogging, swimming, dancing and stretching exercises, like yoga, can all relieve constipation and prevent its development in the future. It is important to note the regularity of the exercises, especially if you have a sedentary job, as being active for only one day a week will not suffice.
Colon hydrotherapy along with an abdominal massage strengthens the muscles of the intestine, which normalizes digestion. It is also very essential to restore microflora and the work of the immune system within the colon, especially for those with unhealthy lifestyles.
