Feeling as though there’s a block in your rectum, constipation can be caused by a lot of different factors including holding back your stool too often. Thankfully, there are natural ways to correct the condition:

Take in More Fiber
Unlike other carbohydrates, fiber cannot break down, meaning it passes down the intestinal tract intact. This is how it got its rep as “roughage” because it adds bulk to your stool, giving the GI tract muscles something to grab on to. In turn, the food ingested can keep moving along smoothly. Fiber-rich foods include bread (whole wheat, 7-grain, dark rye), grains (brown rice, barley), nuts (almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds), fruits ((bananas, oranges, apples) and veggies (broccoli, potatoes, spinach).

Drowsy after a meal? It happens to the best of us. Instead of trying to cure it with the 15-minute nap, try to move around. Giving the digestive system a bit of a boost can also avoid that feeling bloated after a heavy meal. A short walk or any type of physical activity can help food travel through your body quickly.

Eat Good Fat
Fats albeit healthy ones are still necessary for basic body functions. Yes, even if you are trying to lose a couple of pounds! Healthy fats help lubricate your intestines and ease constipation. Try to incorporate nuts, avocados, olive oil, or even a tablespoon of peanut butter into your diet and you’ll notice a difference in your bowel system.
