The intestinal transit took a very long time, a daily concern, so much that the "How do you do?", the "How is it going?" or the "Wie geheen Sie?" meaning "How are you ... HAS THE STOOL??"
Since the outbreak of sexual and middle-class morality of the nineteenth century ("We do not talk of such things, ... ! »), The expressions have remained, even if the meaning has been forgotten !
There even exists a fear of constipation called "Apopathodiaphulatophobia"(phew!) !
In reality, there exists several kinds of constipation, depending on their origins.
1°) The functional Constipation:
2°) organic constipations
It will depend on the nature of constipation.
If it is an organic constipation, one should consider etiological treatment (or causal) carried out by a Naturotherapist, doctor or not.
If it is a functional constipation, one should comply with an adequate way of life:
In all scenarios one may call on to ...
With children, stools are more soft or liquid with the breastfeeding child (except allergies to "maternized milk, in fact cow's milk !). They intervene after each feeding to stabilise thereafter at 3-4 stools per day, up to a stool each 2-3 days.
In elderly or invalid subjects, the transit is often disrupted. The treatment will depend on each case and may include hot enemas (43 °) with the help of olive or paraffin oil.
In all scenarios, the cure of unsweetened prunes will be of precious help!
Permanent Cure of unsweetened prunes
Technique of sweetness removal: fruits incised with a knife all over its length up to the kernel, are put to soak in cold water twenty-four hours in advance. If we have to deal with prunes which are very sweet or too shrunken, one can even open them circumferentially. Then, they are cooked with lots of water (a pan of 6 litres for 1 kg of fruit) during three to four hours, depending on whether it is more or less easy to remove their sweetness (this changes each year). The prunes must boil and every half-an-hour, the cooking water will be thrown away and it will be replaced by an equal volume of warm water, placed to heat up aside at the same time. One can avoid them from boiling by not stirring the fruits violently while handling the change of water. Finally, one can obtain almost completely insipid prunes swimming in a colourless water. If the sweetness removal was insufficient, one might note the plethora incidents: bloody coryza, liver congestion and sensitivity in fragile hepatics. Yet sweetness removal may be a little less extensive during years of weak solar intensity and also according to the taste requirements of the patients.
How to make use: never serve dry prunes, but still plunged in their last cooking water. The patient can take them as per his taste, cold or warm. In general, it is preferable to absorb them warm, especially in winter. They are eaten at the beginning of the two main meals and are taken by the spoon, without drinking the water.
