Treating Constipation in Ramadan: Tips for Better Health

Treating Constipation in Ramadan: Tips for Better Health

Constipation is a common issue many might face during Ramadan due to changes in eating habits and meal timings. Here are some tips to help you combat constipation during this holy month:

  1. Incorporate High-Fiber Foods: Include foods high in fiber in your Suhoor (pre-dawn meal) and Iftar (meal to break the fast) like vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. These foods help stimulate bowel movements.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Drinking adequate amounts of water between Iftar and Suhoor helps to prevent dehydration, a common cause of constipation. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water daily.
  3. Limit Processed and Sugary Foods: These can exacerbate constipation issues.
  4. Engage in Physical Activity: Even light physical activity, such as walking post-Iftar, can help stimulate your intestines.
  5. Seek Medical Advice When Necessary: If constipation persists despite these tips, it’s important to consult a doctor for appropriate advice.

Remember, your health is always a priority, and Ramadan is an opportunity to adopt healthy dietary habits that last all year round.
