How to Relieve Constipation in 1 Min (Breathe-Easy Exercise)
How to get rid of constipation fast? This natural breathing exercise for quick-constipation-relief help has been used by more than 150 Soviet and Russian medical doctors on thousands of their patients with striking success (over 85%). The exercise works quickly for children, during pregnancy, and to ease chronic constipation too since the exercise helps to get rid of spasms providing more O2 and blood for all GI organs.
People with constipation nearly always have less than 30 seconds for the body-oxygen test, while we should have about 40 s (the medical norm).
The cause of low body O2 in modern people is their too fast and heavy breathing (or deep breathing). Overbreathing reduces CO2 in the lungs, and this reduces O2 content in all body cells (see the brain image). In addition, low CO2 in smooth muscles creates a muscular spasm. To stop constipation we need to breathe slower and less (closer to the medical norm).
How to get rid of constipation (breathe-easy exercise)
Do this exercise when you are sitting in the bathroom on a toilet. To relieve constipation fast or in about 1 min, pinch your nose after your usual exhalation. Start holding your breath. (Note that you should avoid any mouth breathing during this exercise.)
You will probably hold your breath without any stress only for about 20 seconds since modern people have about twice reduced body-O2 content in comparison with people living about 100 years ago. But you should hold your breath a little longer or until you get a strong desire to breathe (for more CO2).
Try to get about 30 or more seconds for the breath hold. After you release your nose, make the first inhalation only through the nose and start reduced breathing (breathing less air than before this exercise).
Instead of taking your usual big and frequent inhalations, take a smaller inhalation and using the diaphragm (belly) only. Then relax all body muscles for an exhalation. Repeat the cycle: make another short inhalation and again just relax all muscles to exhale. Practice this reduced breathing while remaining relaxed. In other words, try to breathe slower and less.
In order to help with constipation, your purpose is to maintain air hunger (shortage of air) for about 1 minute with total relaxation of body muscles.
How to treat constipation naturally (permanent cure)
This is the conclusion of over 150 Soviet and Russian MDs who tested and helped to treat chronic constipation in thousands of their patients. If your body-O2-test results are more than 30 s all the time, your blood flow to all organs and O2 content in body cells are high enough to prevent problems with constipation. This is a permanent remedy to treating constipation naturally. In order to achieve high-body O2, you need to stop or avoid your heavy automatic breathing by teaching yourself how to breathe slower and easier 24/7. All additional instructions are in the Learning Section.
