Constipation | How To Get Rid Of Constipation | Constipation Relief (2019)


Constipation is very common in fact it
affects people of all ages in this video I’m going to teach you how to get rid of
it and prevent it now before we begin let’s first define constipation but
remember we’re all different so we have different toilet habits but generally
speaking constipation is when you go to the toilet less often to empty your
bowels or when you’re passing hard painful stools now there’s so many
different causes for constipation in adults and sometimes there’s actually no
obvious reason but some of the most common causes include a lack of fibre so
not eating enough fruit and veg, dehydration ignoring the urge to go actually I’ll
leave a full list in the description below for you now the good news is that
constipation can usually be treated at home with simple lifestyle changes that
we’re going to talk about next but if these that help enough I’m going to talk
about laxatives a bit later on tip number one a really simple way to help reduce
straining when you try to empty your bowels is by raising your feet so when
you’re sat on the toilet have a stool there are some books place your feet on
them and try make your knee come above your hip so by doing this it straightens
out where the colon meets the rectum so this causes the stool to pass through
much more easily also give yourself plenty of time and when you have the
urge to go, go don’t stop yourself by the way I am on vacation right now but I
thought it’d be quite cool to film these parts here so let’s move on to tip two
now to make it still softer and easier to pass you need to drink more fluids so
six to eight glasses per day and to help your stools retain more fluid you need
more fibre so more fruit, more vegetable outs actually I’ll leave a really useful
link in the description below it’s by the NHS and it tells you all the different
foods that have fiber in them and how much to eat so check it out when you get
a minute tip three increase your activity so do more regular walking, more regular
exercise and it’s going to reduce the time it takes for the food to pass
through your large intestine so you’re gonna empty your bowels more regularly
now the reason for this is that the longer the food spends in your large
intestine the more water it’s gonna absorb so it’s gonna leave you with
drier and much harder stools to pass and nobody wants that now I’m gonna go off
snowboarding I’ll see you back in healthcare world “Check this out!” now if diet and lifestyle changes aren’t helping then laxatives are a medication
that can help the bowels empty more regularly however I would advise
everyone to speak to their pharmacist first before purchasing any laxatives
this is so they can check it’s the right one for you, you’re suitable to take it,
you’re not gonna have any problems taking it and also check what medicines
you’re taking because certain medicines can actually cause constipation now
please remember laxatives should only be used for a short period of time and
they’re not recommended for children unless prescribed by a healthcare
professional now let’s move on to the different types of laxatives and how
they work I think it will be useful knowledge for you to know so first up
we’ve got bulk forming laxatives such as ispaghula husk now the way these work
is very similar to when you increase the fiber in your diet it’s gonna help your
stool retain more liquid so it’s easier for your bowels to push the stool out
please remember though bulk forming laxatives do take two to three days for
them to work they also increase flatulence and bloating but this does
settle over time because of this I wouldn’t recommend you taking at
nighttime just before going to bed next up is osmotic laxatives such as lactulose and macrogol which soften your stools and make them easier to pass by
retaining more water in the bowels this is by a process called osmosis hence the
name osmotic laxatives now the osmotic laxatives that I’ve
just named can take up to two days to work it’s also important to drink plenty
of fluids of them because you now know the reason why and it also improves how
well they work stimulant laxatives like bisacodyl, senna or sodium
picosulfate speed up movement in the bowels now this is caused by stimulating
the digestive tract and causing it to contract like this now remember because
you now know how stimulant laxative works with the contractions it can cause
abdominal cramping because of this it can also take up to 12 hours to work
lastly we have stool softener laxatives such as docusate sodium and glycerol
which increase the fluid content of hard and dry stools making them easier to
pass now both of these laxatives work quite quickly within 15 to 60 minutes
it’s also important to remember that once your symptoms improved to stop using
the laxatives unless you’re advised differently by your healthcare professional
and as always with all medication always read the information leaflet and speak
to your pharmacist to make sure that you’re suitable to use it and that is the end of
the video I’ve also left some really useful information in the description
below which I’d advise everyone to read see you next week (LAUGHTER) I’m filming this (LAUGHTER) “In that case if he’s not here that’s fine” I think he’s ummm. causing it to contract I think this might look a bit silly some of the most common causes
are a lack of diet, a lack of diet? a lack fibre to release your bowels, release your
bowels or empty your bowels? bowels… be. be. bowels… hey guys thanks for watching this
