“Stomach massage for constipation” sounds like an oxymoron at best, but it really isn’t. It is a legitimate treatment for those suffering from constipation. I have personally used this treatment to treat my own constipation and was able to help ease the symptoms for which I was already taking medication.
Stomach massage for constipation, sometimes known as a navel massage, involves massaging the navel and abdomen gently and removing stagnant waste products from your lower intestines. The stagnant waste material in your intestines are caused by abdominal fat deposits that block the passageway of the bowel. When excess weight is added to the abdomen, the extra pressure on the walls of the bowel can cause the walls to slowly stretch out and widen. As the walls narrow, they become difficult to pass stool, which results in abdominal cramping, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. Stagnant waste materials are not only uncomfortable but can also be harmful to your internal organs. These wastes build up along the walls of the intestine and create pressure against the walls of the bowel, causing internal tensions that lead to constipation.
When performing a massage of the navel or abdomen, make sure you use light pressure and apply in circular motions around the area. Try applying light pressure and then moving the circular motions in a sweeping motion back and forth in a rhythmic pattern in circular movements. You can also apply heat directly to the belly button to stimulate blood circulation.
In order to relieve cramps, you will need to lie on your side and remove all of your clothing except for your underwear. Gently massage the abdomen muscles by using your fingertips. You may want to place a towel beneath your buttocks to reduce the friction as well as lessen the swelling. Start at the lowest points on your hips, moving up slowly. Repeat for the other side.
Most people who are prone to constipation resort to stomach massages to alleviate the problem. It is not uncommon for people with digestive problems to suffer from bloating, abdominal pain and cramping, even after weight loss. Bloating is caused when the digestive juices flow too fast through the body, causing water to collect in the stomach area. This causes the bloating sensation.
If you want to give yourself a full stomach massage, you will need to drink an olive oil massage gel that contains capsaicin. Olive oil is a key ingredient in certain spicy foods that we usually eat. To add even more flavor, try mixing it with a bit of pepper. This will help to burn off your food so that you can have more energy later on. The result?
Studies show that the combination of massage and olive oil can help to improve digestion because it breaks down fat cells. However, the combination of these two therapies will also speed up metabolism. The increased metabolic rate makes the digestive system work faster, thus less time is wasted. It also allows your digestive tract to better absorb nutrients. Fat-burning hormones will also be released, allowing the metabolism to further breakdown fat cells.
To get the most out of a good stomach massage, you should drink several cups of water afterwards. If you do not drink any water, you can still treat bloating effectively by using ginger. Ginger contains gingerol, which has been shown in some studies to have a cleansing effect on bloating. Eating smaller, more frequent meals helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable. It also keeps the intestines working properly, helping you lose weight faster. Try to eat five or six smaller meals a day instead of three large ones.
