Since constipation is so terrible, this is not good, that is not good, then how is good?
First of all, we must correctly understand constipation.
To treat constipation correctly, one must first learn to judge whether one is really constipated.
Constipation refers to the reduction of defecation frequency. Constipation is called when the number of defecation is less than 2-3 times in a week, or once in 2-3 days, and the amount of feces is small and dry.
However, some people should not be considered constipation if they have to defecate once for 2-3 days and their stool characteristics are normal.
Constipation may only occur when defecation changes from once a day or once every two days to once for more than two days or more.
Constipation can be divided into acute constipation and chronic constipation according to the course of disease.
1. Acute constipation
Acute constipation refers to constipation occurring in a short period of time under the original regular defecation habits.
This kind of situation as long as timely treatment, through a series of examinations, often can quickly identify the cause of constipation.
2. Chronic constipation
Chronic functional constipation refers to constipation that lasts for at least six months and excludes organic diseases such as intestinal cancer.
The causes of chronic constipation are often the combined action of various factors. For example, intestinal motor dysfunction, irritable bowel syndrome and physical and psychological problems such as anxiety and depression caused by constipation.
Long-term constipation, what should I do?
Step 1: Eat well
- Pay attention to eating more coarse grains and coarse cereals. After digestion, coarse grains and coarse cereals have more residues. It can increase the stimulation to the intestinal tract and facilitate stool excretion. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits rich in cellulose. Normal people need 90-100 milligrams of cellulose per kilogram of body weight to maintain normal defecation. Ensure adequate intake of water. The decrease in water in the intestinal tract will lead to constipation caused by distinguishing dryness. Drinking more water can help stool excretion.
Step 2 Give the poop some time
If the defecation time is often delayed, the defecation rule will be destroyed, the defecation reflex will be weakened, and constipation will be caused.
People who are prone to constipation must pay attention to arranging their stool at a reasonable time and go to the toilet every time.
For those who do not have good defecation habits, they can go to the toilet to squat for about 5-10 minutes every morning and stick to it for a period of time to establish normal defecation habits.
3. Insist on a certain amount of exercise
Eat and drink enough to lie down in Ge You, which is a great damage to the gastrointestinal tract.
Of course, you don’t advocate strenuous exercise within half an hour after meals. You can take a walk to promote intestinal peristalsis. Many elderly people like to play tai chi, turn their waist and lift their legs, which can also exercise the anal muscles and improve their defecation ability.
Proper abdominal massage can also promote intestinal peristalsis. The method is to start upward, left and downward clockwise massage of the right lower abdomen 2-3 times a day.
4. Happiness is important
Some people compare the gastrointestinal tract to the second brain of the human body.
Gastrointestinal digestive tract contains rich and complicated enteric nervous system. Long-term anxiety and depression may lead to intestinal nervous dysfunction and constipation is becoming more and more serious.
5. Always use cathartic drugs with caution.
Many patients with functional constipation are not seriously constipated at first. It is only because of long-term abuse that they rely on laxatives, which leads to more and more serious constipation and even colon blackening.
For some constipation patients who really need cathartic drugs, it is still recommended to go to the hospital to accept the advice of professional doctors.
The causes of constipation may be very complicated. Once constipation occurs, it is basically only possible to make constipation more serious by relying on one’s own random speculation and adopting various extreme means.
