Try to eat a high fiber diet. It can help promote bowel movement and also a reduction in milk and meat products can help relieve constipation. Try including oats, prunes and flax seed in your diet. Vitamin B1 and E, as well as vitamin C can also help. Try to include probiotics in your diet. Probiotic help you establish a healthy gut flora, which in turn can facilitate digestion and elimination. Some good examples are yogurt as well as kimchi and sauerkraut. When you buy yogurt, look for labels that say live cultures. Make sure you drink a lot of fluid and include physical activities in your daily routine.
