So we all deal with constipation sometimes. And if you’re like me and you now avoid all chemicals and pills as much as possible, you’ll want to avoid things like laxatives. Besides, like all medicine they can have lots of side effects. Who wants that, right?
Weirdly, despite the fact it’s probably as common as a cold, people tend to be embarrassed to talk about issues surrounding constipation. A clogged up digestive tract can result in many health problems – in fact, many health issues can be associated with the gut. Keep things smooth and moving by easing constipation.
Note: If you get constipated on a regular basis, it’s probably a symptom of something deeper than just things getting a bit clogged. It’s worth investigating – definitely not something to ignore!

Here are the top 3 ways to aid you with dealing with constipation naturally!
1. Coconut Oil
The miracle oil strikes again – did you know that just eating a teaspoon of coconut oil can help relieve constipation within a few hours? It’s best to have on an empty stomach, so have it after not eating for a while, or first thing in the morning!
Kefir is full of good bacteria – this helps restore the healthy gut flora, in turn keeping the digestive system working better, which is especially important when diets these days are full of processed foods and sugars! This could also work with natural live yoghurt.
3. Fruit & Veg
Of course! Fruit and vegetables are full of fibre (if you don’t know, fibre cannot be digested by our bodies therefore helps bind everything together and push things through!)
There are obviously many other natural ways to deal with constipation, and different remedies work on different people. These are the three most popular choices which seem to work on the majority of occurrences. Good luck!
