10 Best Ways to Use Olive Oil for Consipation

Constipation is a very common gastrointestinal problem, which everyone experiences it at some point in life. In this condition, the suffering person either has a very difficult bowel movement or it happens less than the normal. If a person has less than three times bowel movements in a week, then he/she is suffering from constipation. In such a condition, the bowel movement becomes extremely difficult as well as painful.

 

Constipation mainly occurs due to any change in the diet, less intake of fluid, due to some medication, excessive intake of iron and calcium, lack of exercise, etc. Also, during pregnancy most of the women face this issue of constipation more or less.

 

Constipation is not a life threatening condition but it makes your life extremely difficult as well as painful. Unclear bowel movement makes you feel uneasy and uncomfortable throughout the day. There are many otc drugs that you can try to get rid of constipation but you cannot rule out their side effects completely. So in such a case, olive oil can give you much relief from the pain and suffering of constipation.

 

How does olive oil help treat constipation?

Before trying olive oil for constipation, we should be clear about how olive oil can help treat constipation properly. Let’s find out!

 

Helps to release more bile, our natural laxative: The consumption of olive oil helps the gallbladder to release more bile, which helps to digest the fat in the food properly. Apart from that the bile also maintains the moisture of the stool, so you will not face any difficulty and pain during bowel movement. It also irritates the gut mucosa, which stimulates the stool movement.

 

Reduces dilation in the intestine: The consumption of olive oil prevents the swelling, irritation and bloating of the intestine. This process, in turn, relaxes the intestine and allows the stool to pass smoothly.

 

Softens the stool: The use of olive oil coats the fecal matter and gets soaked into it, which softens the stool and makes it easy for your body to pass it smoothly.

 

Stimulates the digestive system: The use of olive oil stimulates the digestive system, which in turn digests the food properly. Proper digestion of foods means you will have a smooth and regular bowel movement.

 

Maintains the overall health of the digestive track: Olive oil is a rich source of vitamin e and k, antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids which all together help to keep the digestive track healthy. A healthy digestive track helps to keep constipation at bay.

 

Best methods to use olive oil for constipation:

 

1. Olive oil

This is one of the easiest ways of using olive oil to treat constipation. Following this olive oil home remedy will definitely help you to get rid of the constipation issue effectively.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 to 2 tbsp

 

Process:

Consume 1 to 2 tsp of olive oil in the morning on an empty stomach. Do not drink water for 1 hour after taking the olive oil. Follow this home remedy till you cure this constipation issue completely. You can also give your constipated child 1 tsp of olive oil in the morning before any food to alleviate the issue of constipation.

 

2. Olive oil and lemon juice

The high acidic content of lemon juice stimulates the digestive system. So the consumption of lemon juice helps the things to move from the digestive track smoothly. And when lemon juice gets combined with olive oil, it really works well to get rid of the constipation issue properly.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 tbsplemon juice – 1 tsp

 

Process:

Take 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil in a cup and add1 tsp of lemon juice to it. Mix both the ingredients well and then drink it. Prefer to take this remedy every night before going to bed as olive will prevent the drying of the colon, which will ultimately promote smooth bowel movement. Following this method regularly will help to treat constipation successfully.

 

3. Olive oil and orange juice

Orange juice is known as a good laxative. Its consumption creates a coating around the colon wall which promotes smoother bowel movement. Apart from that it is a rich source of fibre, which makes it a useful fruit that can help treat constipation effectively.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 2 tbspfresh orange juice – 1 glass

A good amount of good bacteria makes your body strong and helps to treat constipation by reducing its severity.

5. Olive oil and banana

Banana is a rich source of dietary fibre and potassium, which are beneficial for the digestive system. The consumption of banana helps the digestive system work smoothly. Potassium plays an important role to smoothen the function of the muscles in the digestive track. The insoluble fibres in banana help the food to move freely through the digestive track. Including a banana in your daily diet not only prevents constipation but also cures other digestive problems like gas and bloating.

7. Olive oil and coffee

Coffee contains a good amount of caffeine, which acts as a diuretic. Its consumption improves the digestive process and stimulates the colon by triggering the contraction of the colon. In this way, caffeine speeds up the movement of fluids in the digestive track. Apart from that the warm temperature of coffee also softens the hardened feces to move smoothly.

 

What you need:

Extra virgin olive oil – 1 tbsphot coffee – 1 cup

 

Process:

Take a cup of hot coffee and add 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil to it. Mix it properly and drink it both in the morning as well as well as in the evening. This remedy will keep your digestive system lubricated and lessen the symptoms of constipation.

9. Olive oil with fruits

You can take olive with some fruits that help treat constipation successfully. Fruits like prune work as a natural laxative that improves the bowel movement. Apples, pears, raspberries, peach are rich sources of fibre. And you know it well that fibre in food helps proper bowel movement.

 

What you need:

10. Olive oil with vegetables

You can take olive oil with vegetables that are rich in fibre and magnesium, such as beans, green peas, snap peas, sweet potato, broccoli, brussels sprouts. The leafy greens that can alleviate constipation are celery, spinach, kale etc.

 

Note: To prepare the olive oil remedies for constipation, ensure to buy extra virgin, organic and cold pressed olive oil as this olive oil contains most of the vitamins and antioxidants.

 

Tips to follow

It is well said that prevention is better than cure. Constipation is such a condition which just makes life difficult. So you need to follow certain things in your daily life so that you can prevent this issue from occurring once again.

 

Refrain from eating foods that cause constipation or makes the condition worse. Do not eat food that contains more fats, such as cheese, red meat, white bread, hard boiled eggs, etc. Also, decrease the consumption of food with refined sugar, such as candies and cookies. Do not eat processed food. Do some mild exercises or yoga everyday to keep you active. This will promote a healthy bowel movement. Avoid taking stress as it is considered as one of the causes of constipation. Schedule your everyday bowel movement. This process will trigger your body to have a bowel movement at a particular time of the day. Drink a lot of water to keep yourself hydrated. Most of the times insufficient water consumption causes constipation. Drink minimum 8 glasses of water per day. You can also take fluid in the form of fruit or vegetable juices. Stop consuming alcohol if you are suffering from constipation as it may worsen the condition. Include fruits and vegetables that are rich in fibre in your daily diet. Like fibre-rich food, vitamin-c rich fruits also help to treat mild to severe constipation issues. So include fruits that are rich in vitamin c like orange, guava, orange, grapes, papaya, and apple in your daily diet to keep constipation at bay. You can cook your food in olive oil, add it to your marinades, and use it in your salads to get the maximum benefits of olive oil for constipation.

 

Olive oil can cure mild to moderate constipation. So use these olive oil remedies to treat constipation for sure. But after using all these olive remedies if you do not get any benefit, then consult a physician to know the underlying causes of it to get better medication.

You can feel fatigued due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you do .

Dear lybrate-user sahu! do not worry about the thickness, length, cure or bend. The sexual satisfaction depends upon your stamina not by size and shape. For good stamina 1. Practice the squeeze technique 2, take almond soaked in water 3. Do regular exercise for 30 minutes daily 4. Take palak, spinach in your food often 5. Do kegel exercise if you have more doubts

Dear lybrate user, kindly note that if you indulge in sexual relation after an interval of minimum 7 days then you are bound to discharge quickly during intercourse but that does not imply that you have any disease. It occurs due to loss of control of the muscles of penis. Normally it is seen that when a person does sexual intercourse daily he gains control over the muscles of penis & can stay longer during sex. You need to take homoeopathic mother tincture salix nigra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water to get rid of premature ejaculation. But before taking any medicine kindly notice whether you are having a second erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation for the first time. If you are not experiencing any erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation then you are surely suffering from erectile dysfunction. There will be a change of medication in this case. To get rid of erectile dysfunction you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture agnus castus q q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines are based on the symptoms of your diseased condition & these medicines need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.
