Looking for a COVID-19 test?
CareClues partner hospitals and clinics have been approved by ICMR to conduct COVID-19 RT-PCR test.
Start by including more and more fiber in your diet. Eat lots of fruits, veggies and whole grains. Prunes or dried plums are a great remedy for constipation due to their high fiber content. Fiber adds bulk and water to stools. Sorbitol, a sugar alcohol, found in prunes moves water into the colon and its phenolic compounds stimulate gut bacteria, triggering laxative action. You should also avoid dairy products and non-veg, although eating high fiber fish is alright. Drinking lots of water is important too to trigger bowel movement.
