Exercises for Relieving Constipation, IBS Bloating and Abdominal Pain

According to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, adults and children alike should get 20 to 30 grams of fiber a day, but most people only consume half that amount. When it comes to hydration, many people fail to drink enough water, especially when exercising, which can cause you to lose fluids and become dehydrated. To stay well hydrated, women should drink about 11.5 cups of fluids a day, and men should drink 15.5 cups daily, suggests the Mayo Clinic.The answer could be as simple as trying some forms of relaxation therapy, from listening to soothing music to visualization techniques, like closing your eyes and picturing a happy place. If that doesn’t help enough, you might want to investigate one-on-one therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to learn how to change thought patterns that distress you or even hypnosis, suggests Harvard Health Publishing.
