6 Useful Tips – How to cure constipation caused by computers?


Did you know that the human intestine is ten times longer than the length of his body? Our digestive system is remarkably efficient. But what happen with the average 8-10 year old in the U.S. who spends around eight hours per day in front of a screen and have bowel movement problems? How to cure constipation caused by computers?

And I am talking about adults also because not only children are surrounded by cellphones, tablets or laptops.

So lets see what may help you in this situation:

  1. Try any of the following to compensate the lack of phisical activity: aerobics, cycling, swimming, dancing or football. I love dancing and swimming. So I don’t feel like I’m doing something specifically to avoid constipation.
  2. Make sure you always have a glass of water near you especially if you are eating processed foods most of the time.
  3. Go to the bathroom if you feel the need to poo. Don’t postpone! Not even for a half an hour. Not even for the most pleasant conversation you may have on facebook.
  4. Emotional and mental strain produce unfavorable conditions in the digestive system. For instance, if you like playing computer games, this can cause a lazy bowel movement.
  5. Before sitting in front of the screen, consider a breakfast with apricots, mangos, figs, papayas and water.
  6. Drink a cup of peppermint tea during your computer time. Peppermint contains menthol which has an antispasmodic effect on the digestive muscles.
