Most of us didn’t think about our bowel movements, some people just think about it when they already feel something uncomfortable and a health problem occurred. Every person has different bowel habits and the general range is from three times a day to three times a week. My regular bowel movement is daily and I really feel happy, healthy and comfortable with that habit. Let me share to you some of the good tips to have a regular daily bowel movement.
- Every morning when I wake up, I always do some stretching first drink a glass of water then for my breakfast I would take 1 cup of coffee, a full breakfast meal with a serving of fruit (depends on my mood) and another glass of water. After breakfast, I usually prepare for bathing but before that I organize some things, watch or read the news then after a few minutes of concentrating on something presto I’m into my bowel habit. It makes me feel at ease everyday after a successful bowel habit.
- Our food intake affects our bowel movement so if you wanted to have a regular bowel habit you should eat fiber rich foods and enough water for good digestion. Some of the healthy foods that are easy to find in the market in the Philippines are sweet potatoes, sweet corn, bananas specifically “Lakatan” because “Tundan” bananas are good for diarrhea and papaya. One of the best healthy green leafy vegetable to eat is the “Saluyot” or Jute Leaves which can commonly be found at the backyard in the Philippines.
- For juice drinks, the very effective healthy juice drink that can make our bowel soft and easy to pass is none other than “Buko juice” or “Coconut juice”. I usually give Buko juice to my little boy when he has a difficulty with poo poo (bowel movement) instead of suppository.
With the above tips, you can have a regular bowel movement. It is really healthy if you have that regular habit and it will make your day so comfy.
I hope I’d inspire you.
