    • Constipation In Adults
    1. 'A healthy stomach is a healthy body'. Many diseases
      have their roots in the digestive system. Constipation is
      a very common problem affecting a lot of people. Wrong
      eating habits, sedentary lifestyle & sluggish intestines are
      the main reasons. If the stomach is not cleared well, it
      leads to a lot of problems such as headaches, gas etc.
      However, use of laxatives should be discouraged as it is
      habit forming and also harmful in the long run. Here are
      some tips to relieve you of your problem. (It will take some
      time but be persistent and you will surely benefit)
    2. Take a hot glass of water with 1 teaspoon honey and juice
      of ½ a lemon first thing in the morning.
    3. Drink one litre of water first thing in the morning.
    4. Soak 6-8 dates (khajoor) in a cup of water at night. Churn
      in the mixer in the morning & drink first thing in the morning.
    5. Consume approx. 250-300 gms fresh grapes (angoor) every
      day. When not in season, soak 12-15 raisins (kishmish) in
      water and have them. Raisins should be soaked for 24-48
      hours and eaten early in the morning. The water in which
      they are soaked should also be drunk.
    6. Simply eat a few liquorice (mulathi) sticks. One of its
      many properties is that it is a natural laxative.
    • Constipation for small children
    1. Soak 6-8 raisins (kishmish) in hot water (depending on the
      age). When cool, crush well and strain. When given
      routinely even to little infants, it helps to regulate bowel
      movement (however care should be taken - so as not to
      give too much otherwise the child will get loose motions.)
    2. Consumption of 6-8 apricots (khurmani) a day or 2-3
      cucumbers (kheera) a day or 1-2 bananas a day is also
      very useful.
    3. Bulk forming vegetables like carrots, radish, spinach,
      cabbage or roughage creating things should be consumed.
      Instead of juice always opt for eating the fruit.
    4. Whole wheat flour should be used and processed foods
      (maida, cheese, confectionery) should be avoided.
    5. Taking 2-3 teaspoon of isabgol in milk or warm water either
      first thing in the morning or at bed time is very beneficial.
    6. Mix ½ teaspoon honey to ½ - 1 cup warm water and have
      it 2-3 times a day.
    • Colic in Babies
    1. Boil a teaspoon of fennel seeds (saunf) in a cup of water.
      Boil for 2-3 minutes and keep it to cool for 15-20 minutes.
    2. Strain. Add 1-2 teaspoon to every feed of milk of the baby.
      It helps cure colic.
    • Cold
    1. A lemon a day keeps the cold away. For a bad cold,
      the juice of two lemons in ½ a litre (2½ cups) of boiling
      water sweetened with honey, taken at bed time, is a very
      effective remedy.
    2. Have ginger (adrak) tea.
    3. Cut ginger (adrak) into 1" _ 1½" pieces and boil with a cup
      of water. Give 8-10 boils. Strain, sweeten with ½ teaspoon
      sugar and drink hot.
