Surely there must be a better way to cure constipation naturally!
As well as foods, there are also some herbs that are really beneficial for helping relieve constipation, particularly if you have been suffering for some time.
Aloe vera is considered a natural laxative. It can be used to relieve constipation, but sparingly, or you will go from one extreme to the other. You don’t want to be afraid to cough.
Slippery elm is another herb favoured by health professionals for helping relieve constipation as it has a very soothing and lubricating effect on the intestinal tract.
Dandelion acts as a natural laxative and can be drunk as a tea, or you can grab some dandelion leaves, yes the ones that grow in the garden. Make sure you wash them well first! Someone may have sprayed them with weed killer or the dog might have been there before you.
Like dandelion, nettle can be drunk as a tea and is a natural laxative.
The leaves and pods of the senna plant are medicinal and well known for their effective laxative effects. You may well have heard of it before as it is found in a number of over-the-counter remedies such as Senokot.
