Constipation is a disease in which bowel movement is reduced due to a decrease in bowel movement. Numerically defined as a bowel movement less than once every 3-4 days. Constipation is a very common symptom, with 5-20% of the population complaining of symptoms, which increases in frequency with age and is more common in women than in men.
Let’s stop boring medical knowledge here. From now on, as a surgeon, I’m going to share a practical tip to help you relieve constipation that makes you feel uncomfortable every morning. This will help reduce your pain and medication use.
Even if constipation is something that doesn’t matter to you, this method is still useful. Because, this will significantly reduce the amount of time you spend to empty your bowel every morning. You can spend more time each morning doing something worthwhile.
How to relieve constipation is very simple. Put a small footrest under your feet before you sit on the toilet. It is recommended that the footrest be at least one foot high. This footrest will lift your legs up while you sit on the toilet. Then your posture changes from left to right in the picture.
When you sit comfortably as usual in the posture on the left side of the picture, your rectum is bent. Your rectum is where feces are waiting for the right time to come into the world. The rectum that is vent become the challenge that feces have to overcome before it goes into the world. This is why you can’t defecate immediately after sitting on the toilet.
But if you sit on the toilet in the right posture of the picture, your rectum that was bent will stretch out like an airplane runway. Unobstructed stool will make you comfortable as well. Get away from constipation and have a healthy bowel movement!
