WEEK 2 DQ 1 Constipation: Two ways to remedy constipation would be to either drink two to four glasses of water each day, or try a mild laxative. Out of these two remedies, the laxative would most likely give a quicker result. The reason for this is because the laxative is a more severe way of working out the issue rather than drinking extra water. I think if you want fast results, over the counter products would be better than home remedies. Exercise. Start some sort of exercise program. Exercise brings more blood, oxygen and nutrients to the intestines which helps them function properly. Exercise, combined with recommended dietary changes and supplements, will be the foundation of your wellness program. Fiber (25-35 grams, the equivalent of 2-3 tablespoons, in divided doses). Fiber in general is needed to add bulk to your stool, and bran is the most effective form. Fiber will also help develop regular bowel contractions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
