Constipation is a disturbance of the digestive tract and referes to infrequent bowel movement including hard / dry bowel movements, which don't remove toxins from our body.
Constipation if not cured may cause Appendicitis, Rheumatism, Arthritis and High Blood Pressure and sometimes Cancer too.....
Regular drinking of 6-8 glasses of water is advised to flush out the toxins from the body.
Chapati / roti made with wheat (2 parts) and roasted black gram powder (1 part) is beneficial to cure constipation.
Spinach juice, Cabbage juice, carrot juice, figs (dipped in water), dates mixed in milk if eaten in the morning cures constipation.
Fruits like oranges, pear, guava, raw papaya & grapes are beneficial to cure constipation.
Another effective remedy is sipping hot water ((it works wonders for me till date...)
Squeeze half a lime in a glass of hot water and add a pinch of salt.
