Regular digestion is a basis for our well-being. But for every third person, going to the bathroom is a problem. A constipation is not only annoying. Feeling bloated, abdominal pain, flatulence and tiredness cause general malaise. And that increases the longer you stay out of the bowel movement. How you can stimulate the intestine and what helps if you have no bowel movement, you can find out here.
Defecation: What is normal?
When and how often you need to go to the bathroom is different. Everyone has their own rhythm. Many feel good when they have stools every day. But medically, that's not a must.
Only when you have less than two to three times a week bowel movement, there is a constipation. The main cause of digestive problems is our unhealthy lifestyle.
Unhealthy lifestyle promotes constipation
Unilateral diet and other unhealthy behaviors are often the causes of constipation:
- Our food contains too little fiber. This makes the intestine lazy, because fiber promotes intestinal function by binding water. This ensures a fast intestinal passage and prevents the chair from becoming too hard.
- We also drink too little. The coffee in the morning, the wine for lunch and the beer in the evening are not enough. At least two to three liters of liquid should be consumed per day. This also keeps the intestinal contents sufficiently supple.
- Stress and hectic do not leave us time to go to the bathroom. However the "revenge" avenges, the intestinal contents thicken strongly. When we finally have time, the chair is hard and the bowel movement is painful.
- We move too little. We spend most of our lives sitting down: at the desk, in the car, watching TV. So we become lazy and our gut too. If you have no bowel movements for several days in a row, you are increasingly suffering and want a quick remedy.
Reliable agents such as Bisacodyl quickly eliminate the current problem. Those who seriously and permanently want to do something for their digestion should also undertake to eliminate the causes.

7 tips for healthy eating
In order to improve digestion and promote bowel movements, you should follow the following tips regarding nutrition:
|6||Eat cereal products from whole wheat flour. This contains four to five times more fiber than white flour.|
|3||Drink more than 1.5 liters of fluid per day. Especially good are water, unsweetened juice or tea.|
|2||Eat some cereal every day, which is made from wholegrain cereals, some milk and seasonal fruit.|
|4||Eat raw or not too soft cooked vegetables every day. Also cabbage varieties are recommended because they are rich in fiber.|
|5||Do not swallow while eating, but chew every bite thoroughly. Well chewed is half digested.|
|3||If you are hungry for a glass of wine, drink white wine instead of red wine. Red wine contains tannins that are stuffy.|
|2||Do not drink ice cold beer. Chilled beer with eight to ten degrees C promotes digestion, while too cold beer paralyzes the digestion.|

|5||Always and immediately go to the toilet as soon as you have a gut irritation. If you suppress the bowel movement, the intestine reacts with constipation.|
|2||Keep your "toilet routine" on holidays and holidays. If you sleep late, the intestine likes to lazy with. This too can lead to constipation.|
