Glossary On Self-care tips

Based on our experience of treating a large number of cases of chronic constipation successfully with homeopathy, we have observed that following certain diet and regimen tips goes a long way in management of this condition. At Dr. Batra's, we have repeatedly verified these clinical tips and found them to be useful in most cases:

  • Include plenty of vegetables, salads and fruits in your diet
  • Chew your food properly; do not swallow food in a hurry
  • Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily
  • Eat only when hungry
  • Avoid overeating and eating between meals
  • Replacing polished rice with unpolished rice and white bread with brown bread is very useful for those suffering from habitual constipation
  • Regular exercise helps in maintaining good bowel health
  • Avoid over-the-counter laxatives because long-term intake of these may damage the lining of the bowels and injure nerve endings in the colon
  • Preferably go to the toilet at the same time every day to ensure regular bowel movements
  • A glass of warm milk before sleeping helps in relieving constipation
