According to the Journal of General Internal Medicine every fifth person suffers from constipation and women are usually more affected than men. Constipation or having troubles going to the toilet can be a serious problem for many of us. Some people may think of it as a joke but it's really a serious medical condition which requires attention.
People who experience this problem on a regular basis have probably tried a number of medications and home remedies including stool softeners, eating more fibers, changing pooping positions, detox and cleanses but often none of these gives the desired results.
However, we've learned a new trick which can help you and relieve your problem in a matter of seconds. We're talking about a special technique which will yield results without any side-effects. First you need to locate the perineum, a small area between your anus and the scrotum or vulva, and then you need to apply pressure and massage this point to ease up your constipation. This advice comes directly from the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
This technique is very useful and can even be beneficial for pregnant women to relax the area before giving birth. Regularly massaging this point relaxes the bowel and softens the stool, making it easier to come out.
Tried by many, this method is proven to be more effective than laxatives and doctors should start explaining it to their patients suffering from constipation.
