Owing to the current lifestyle and eating habits, about 15 to 20% of the world’s population is facing severe constipation problems and unable to poop on command. And if you are reading this blog then we are sure that you are amongst that certain percentage.
How to Make Yourself Poop on Command?
It is recommended to eat lots of fiber to get rid of this unwanted constipation, which is the best advice for a long term solution. But if you want to make yourself instantly poop on command, then here are some tips to expedite your trip to the washroom:
1. Warm Water with lemon juice:
If you are not able to poop on command, then start having warm water with lemon juice first thing in the morning. This magic drink can do wonders for you, and can really help you to poop with ease. Warm water helps in improving bowel movements along with softening the stool. However, if you don’t have a lemon you can always drink just a cup of warm water. In fact, some people can’t poop without having tea or coffee in the morning.
2. Use solution with Epsom Salt:
Solution made from Epsom Salt is FDA approved and helps to give you relief from constipation. As per the dosage mentioned on the packet, mix Epsom salt in water, and instantly drink the solution. The solution will start producing effects within 30 minutes to 6 hours. It will help to produce bowel movements as well as to shorten your trip to the washroom. Those who don’t want to have Epsom salt orally can also take a bath using this solution. All you have to do is to mix one cup of Epsom salt to a bathtub full of warm water. Sit in the bathtub for some time and your skin will start absorbing the magnesium content present in the Epsom Salt. However, the effect of this solution while taken orally is faster than the effect of the same while bathing.
3. Taint Massaging:
Some people may find it a little weird to massage one’s own taint but it is scientifically proven that when the area between anus and testicles or vagina is massaged, it helps in creating bowel movements. It may be a little difficult especially when you are in the office or at some public place but if you can do this then trust us, it is one of the best ways to get rid of constipation and instantly poop on command. However, such massaging is not recommended for a pregnant woman. If a pregnant woman faces constipation, then she must consult the doctor immediately.
Have you ever felt the urge of going to the washroom after running a few kilometers on the treadmill? If yes, then do the same while facing such bowel obstruction. Exercising helps in increasing the blood flow that will improve the intestinal contraction strength that will in turn help to produce bowel movements. If not exercise, try taking a brisk walk and if your constipation is not that severe, it will not take you much time to run towards the washroom.
Squats will not only help you to get back in shape but will also help you to get over constipation. Remember the times when we used to have traditional seats in the washroom ? At that time such issues were rare. But ever since, modern and comfortable seats have been introduced, people spend more time using mobile phones on these shit pots rather than actually pooping. The squat position is the best way to poop in no time. Try this at home and it will take you less than two minutes to poop. However, looking at the way things have changed if you fail to find any such place where you can sit in a squat position to poop, place a plank beneath your feet. It will help elevate your knees and pass the stool easily.
6. Prune Juice:
Another tried and tested way to get rid of the infrequent bowel movements is to drink prune juice. Prunes are a great supplement for increasing bowel movements. However, while taking it, make sure to have the right dosage of the same. You can either have one cup of prune juice that contains about 5 grams of fiber or you can eat two medium prunes containing 2 grams of fiber. However, if you are facing severe constipation, you can also add apple juice to prune juice. Have two to three cups of prune juice in the morning and follow it with apple juice half an hour later. This combination has worked wonders for many enabling them to poop with much ease.
Not recommended for mild constipation but for those who suffer severe constipation occasionally, this is the best way to pass the stool. Insert the tip of the enema into the rectum and then gently squeeze the same so that the substance can enter the rectum. Stay in the same position for about five to ten minutes and shortly you will start feeling the urge to poop. However, it is recommended to use enema only at the point when everything else stops working. Try to use mild laxatives in the first place. Also, make sure not to hold the enema for more than ten minutes as it can pose serious health issues. Even if you don’t feel the urge to go to the washroom, try releasing the Enema that you have held.
8. Fiber supplement:
There is no second thought about the usefulness of fiber supplements in keeping the digestive health intact. It is recommended to add as much fiber as you can in your daily diet. If you are falling short of having an appropriate amount of fiber every day, then you can add fiber supplements to your diet. These supplements are easily available at any pharmacy store and adding the same in your daily diet can help you in getting rid of digestive problems. However, don’t get addicted and try to incorporate fresh fiber in your diet rather than the supplementary ones. These are short term solutions and must be consumed occasionally only.
These are some of the ways through which you can get rid of the irritating bowel obstruction and poop on command. It may look like a small concern but not pooping every day can create some serious health concerns. Also, it is really important to listen to your body to avoid such problems. Respond immediately when your body gives you any such sign. Never hold back as it can have serious side effects on your abdomen. If held for a long time, the stool can become hard creating trouble for you to pass the same.
If constipation and obstruction in bowel continue for more than a week, then it is recommended to seek doctor’s assistance rather than trying any home remedies.
