Natural Ways To Avoid & Relieve Irregularity
What does it mean to be regular? What does it mean to be constipated?
Most people average a bowel movement somewhere between once a day and three times a week, and constipation is defined as a decrease in your usual number of bowel movements. If you normally go once a day, and you suddenly only go once a week, then you’re probably constipated.
What Causes Constipation?
When it comes to constripation, doctors blame not eating enough fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, and other sources of fiber…while eating too many processed foods. Fiber helps moves the bowels, but most Americans eat far less than the recommended 20 to 35 g of fiber a day.
