My close friend of 59 years. Sometimes he gets itching & scars on the edge of his penis. When this happens, he says some white, odourless substance comes out from inside giving rise to itching during that period. Since his wife's death 15 months ago he never had intercourse with any other. Why this happened now and how to get rid of the problem permanently​.

Dear user. PENILE ITCHING could be due to many factors. Men who are uncircumcised (who have the foreskin remaining around the penis) are prone to balanitis, an inflammation of the foreskin that is often caused by poor hygiene, irritation, or infections. Penile itch is not an emergency, but it may be a sign of a disease that can be transmitted to others. Please consult a doctor for physical investigation which is essential for diagnosis. Take care.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes is a condition occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both together. So treatment is to either stimulae insulin secretion from beta cells in pancreas or reduce resistance to its action or provide insulin itself. All these three things are possible by only modern medicines, even though a lot of advertisements are made regarding controlling and curing of diabetes with other practices, there is no conclusive proof or evidence in this regard. Thanks for the question.

10 Best Ways to Use Olive Oil for Consipation

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:

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am not sure what the patients age is. But the permanent solution for constipation is in diet and lifestyle modification. Exercise regularly. Have one bowl of boiled vegetables like carrot, beetroot, guards, pumpkins, beans and greens daily. One bowl of fresh fruits everyday is recommended specially fruits like banana, citrus fruits. Musk melon but if the patient is aged above 70 and is facing this problem then it may not be resolved with just diet and lifestyle modification. They may need a long term treatment.
