Want to know the best natural remedy for constipation?
While everybody poops, some of us poop ‘better’ than others. Like, we all have ‘that friend,’ right? The one who poops easily and daily no matter what they eat? Well, great for them. For the rest of us, most of us can use this tip for the best natural remedy for constipation.
If you have 3 minutes, I have a natural remedy for constipation for you.
5 steps to better poops
The better the circulation to the gut, and the easier the ‘poop’ can move through the tubes, the better formed the stool is. This is great for both ‘too hard’ and ‘too soft’ poops. Clear it with your physician if you have concerns, and it should never hurt. So if it hurts, don’t do it, silly.
1. Get Blood Moving: Massage in a “sunflower” shape around your belly button
30-60 seconds, gentle circles around your belly button. Improves general circulation. Better circulation = better moving poops.
2. Sigmoid Colon Clearing:
Moderate pressure at left hip, pulling down, and in towards belly button.
3-5 pulls inward, releasing pressure as you reposition your hand towards your left hip. So you put moderate pressure down just to the inside of your left hip bone. Keep moderate pressure and pull in towards belly button. Release pressure and reposition hand. Repeat inward pull 3-5x. You are literally pulling ‘poop’ through your sigmoid colon (an S curve where it can get ‘stuck’).
3. Descending Colon Clearing:
Moderate pressure at left side of belly, pushing downward from under ribs toward left hip.
This moves the ‘poop’ down the descending colon, into the space you just created in the sigmoid colon. Again 3-5 reps is dandy. Moderate downward pressure, starting just under rib cage, pulling down towards left hip. Then release pressure and reposition hand up to lower ribcage. Repeat 3-5x.
4. Skip Transverse Colon
5. Ascending Colon Clearing:
Move to the right side of your stomach. Firm pressure, at the bottom of your Right abdomen (just inside your right hip bone), and pull firmly upwards towards the right side of your lower ribcage. Release pressure and move hand back down by right hip. Repeat 3-5x.
6. Clear the Cecum
The Cecum is the part where your small intestine meets your large intestine. If ‘stuff’ is sticky there, overall colic transit (speed of ‘stuff’ through abdomen) is slowed. So get that Cecum moving! 3-5 moderate pulls. This time from deep right hip, down and in towards belly button. Release pressure then move hand back to right hip. Repeat 3-5x.
Do this before bed, every night for a week and enjoy the results!
