I suffer with really bad trapped wind and constipation. When I rub and squeeze my belly for a long time, wind eventually passes. Would wearing a shiatsu massage belt on a regular basis relieve my wind and constipation?
No one will really know. You should change your diet and stop eating sugar, gluten and dairy.
I have had it for a while now and im also vegeterian but I had it before that, what causes constipation? and what are some easy ways to get rid of it without going to the docter?
Gluten intolerance can cause constipation. If you’re a vegetarian, you likely eat a lot of bread and pasta to make up for your meat. If you have other health problems or symptoms or if your constipation gets to a point where it’s really bothersome, you could try a gluten free diet to see if it’s causing your problems.
Another thing I’ve found to really help with constipation is green smoothies. There are lots of websites dedicated to green smoothie recipes but my favorite is 1 apple, a handful of fresh spinach, and another type of fruit, like berries or a pear. Add a cup of water and some ice and blend in the blender for a few minutes. You can’t taste the spinach, it just tastes like fruit, but the fiber from the fruits cleans you right out. I started drinking them a couple months ago and I haven’t had constipation since. The theory behind the smoothies is that the nutrients in the spinach are much more available when they’re ground because our teeth can’t grind them enough to get all the nutrients. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but it’s really effective for constipation and all the fiber really lowers your appetite. It’s great for dieting. Let me know if you need any more suggestions!
I had breast surgery done two days ago as a result of pain medication I have constipation and it is very frustrating. Can you please give me some tips as to what to eat and what not to eat?
Some Kelloggs All Bran will do the trick. Also try apple sauce or juice.
I just ate like six cups of white rice with strawberries at about 12 midnight tonight. Both foods cause constipation.
How long will it take before I start to pass this rice? When should I take an over-the-counter laxative so I can time it so my stools dont come out painfully? Now? Tomorrow?
that depends, dont take laxative unless u really need to, it will pass. i say about a day or two but it will be over in no time. best wishes.
I was wondering, is constipation when you feel like you have to go but it wont come out, or if you just don't feel like you have to go at all?
Can be both. Constipation occurs when the colon absorbs too much water or if the colon’s muscle contractions are slow or sluggish, causing the stool to move through the colon too slowly. As a result, stools can become hard and dry.
More Dietary fiber in your diet (like metamusil supplement)
Proper exercise and diet (including fresh fruits and veggies!)
Laxatives, enemas, suppositories if it gets too bad and you need a little 'help'
I usually experience constipation after a diarrhea. Although it does not happen often but everytime there is a diarrhea, constipation will follow suit. Is it normal?
Yes normal, you get dehydrated form the runs and then your body hoards fluid after. One of lifes bummers. Do try to drink as much water as you can when you have the runs and after. It helps a lot.
Whole Wheat is supposed to be high fiber good for constipation but wheat produces lot of heat. How come?
I have always heard that wheat produces lot of heat hence should be avoided during summer coz it may aggravate piles , constipation etc But its also mentioned that Whole wheat has lot of fiber and hence is good for constipation. How come?
The health benefits of wheat depend entirely on the form in which you eat it. If you select 100% whole wheat products, however, the bran and the germ of the wheat will remain in your meals, and the health benefits will be impressive! Our food ranking qualified whole wheat (in its original non-enriched form) as a very good source of dietary fiber and manganese, and as a good source of magnesium.
The many benefits of whole wheat products are being recognized more and more by consumers.

I took an exam for depression at the doctor and one question asked about constipation. I was just wondering what does this have to do with depression?
You don't feel better after dropping the kids off at the pool? I always feel my best when I make a mud monkey that I can be proud of. Hell, even talking about it has me smiling…
This question may sound so hard to be answered or may sound so awkward because it seems to me that many people say that high fiber foods are one of the ways for you to avoid constipation but it possible for someone to avoid that even if he/she does not consume that much fiber but on a balanced routine?
Constipation is the only culprit of all ur body ailments remember…….to avoid constipation stick to vegeterian food..drink plenty of water,eat green salads and of course fibre rich diet avoid tension,anxiety..and takea good nice sleep and have a nice 1 hour walk daily……bye kanwaljeet
I've been having this problem the last few days, and need help badly …I suffer from constipation, and a few days ago my belly started to get bloated, and I dunno what to do. I've been eating lots of fiber to try to stop the constipation but its no use.
Should I try a laxative? will this end the whole bloated belly thing? It makes me look about a few pounds heavier, Help?
It sounds like you have been constipated for several days. I think eating fruit and taking some stool softeners may help, if not by all means take a gentle laxative because you are filling up with gas and you need to relieve all that pressure and contents of your colon.Also drink plenty of liquids maybe prune juice which is a natural laxative.
