BEAT CONSTIPATION AND BLOATING!
Random food, parties, and stress can wreak havoc on your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. To the rescue: these constipation cures, which will keep you regular through whenever, you name it! Here, the top reasons for toilet troubles and the simple, M.D.-backed remedies.
1. YOUR SCHEDULE'S OFF TRACK
You may be eating later than typical. "You should start putting food into your digestive tract when the sun rises and stop when the sun sets, which now is around 5 p.m.," says Robynne Chutkan, M.D. author of Gutbliss. If you're not even sitting down to eat until 9 p.m., that food will sit in your GI tract all night, which can clog you up.
2. YOU'RE STRESSED
"Your bowels are all muscle, so in order to have a bowel movement, you need to be relaxed. Otherwise the bowels will stay clenched," explains Chutkan. As above, a few minutes of exercise can help you get things going.
3. YOU'RE EATING HEARTIER FOODS
Besides sugary and high-carb treats, people are typically eating heartier fare as well, like stews, notes Chutkan. Plus, you're not eating as much fresh produce, which "acts like Drano for the GI tract, since they're full of fiber and fluid," she says.
4. YOU'RE STUFFED UP
"Many over-the-counter remedies like cold and flu medicine can be constipating," warns Chutkan. That's because they're dehydrating-it makes them a godsend when you need to dry out a drippy, runny nose, but it can also suck all the water from your bowels, leading to constipation.
5. YOU'RE DRINKING MORE
Alcohol is a diruetic, which means it flushes fluid out of your body, says Chutkan. So if you're drinking more often, you may feel dried out-and backed up-all over. To avoid this, alternate each drink with a glass of water, and sip steadily throughout the day too.
