  • REGULAR BOWEL HABITS & PREGNANCY

    Your regular bowel habits may become disturbed during your pregnancy due to hormonal changes. The increasing level of progesterone in your system makes the bowels less efficient. The normal rhythmic contractions of the intestines slow down, and can result in constipation. These changes probably result from relaxation of the muscle cells in the bowel and pressure on the surface of the bowel wall from the expanding uterus containing the growing baby. Hemorrhoids appear more frequently. Do not use any commercial hemorrhoid medications. These contain local anesthetics and mercury which are absorbed through the skin and can be harmful to the fetus.




    CONSTIPATION RELIEF SUGGESTIONS

  • Stool softeners usually provide relief without danger to you or your baby, but do not take a laxative, enema, or any drug without consulting with your midwife first. Avoid enemas, unless suggested by your midwife. If you must use something, try using glycerin suppositories or a very mild natural laxative. If you are taking a medication or iron supplement, these may ba adding to your constipation problems.

  • Some dietary changes can safely prevent constipation (these help hemorrhoids also).
    • Increased quantities of Fiber in your diet. This is found in Wheat Bran or Oat Bran, whole-grain breads, brown rice and cereals and should be eaten daily. Begin by taking 2 teaspoons of bran in a glass of apple juice twice daily. The bran may cause some gas until your system is used to it, but after that you should not have any difficulty.

    • Drink plenty of water, herbal teas (check with your midwife about types of teas are allowable during pregnancy) and other fluids, such as juices (prune juice is a good natural laxative). You need to consume about 8 glasses of fluids daily as a minimum. This is important when adding fiber to the diet. Not only will this help with the bowels, but you also need to have the fluids for your expanding blood volume and the baby's amniotic fluid expansion. Be careful about becoming dehydrated. Drink water whether you are thirst or not. If you are thirsty, your body has already become mildly dehydrated. For a quick relief of constipation, drink a large glass of water every 10 minutes for half an hour. This works wonders to flush out toxins and relieve constipation. Some women find drinking any warm liquid first thing in the morning helps to get things moving. Herbal teas are a great way of getting warm water into your body.

    • Eat high fiber fresh fruits and dried fruits such as prunes, raisins, and figs. Foods that contain high levels of soluble fiber are adzuki beans, barley, dried beans, oats, and some fruits, especially apples, apricots, bananas, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, figs, grapes, peaches, and prunes. Foods high in insoluble fiber are cereals, seeds, wheat bran, whole grains, and the skins of many fruits and vegetables.

    • Eat fresh vegetables and salads containing a variety of raw green and colored vegetables daily. Consume plenty of foods that are high in pectin, such as apples, carrots, beets, bananas, cabbage, citrus fruits, dried peas, and okra. Apple Pectin and Grapefruit Pectin is also available in supplement form.
  • Exercise. Walk at least a mile a day, and set a regular time each day for bowel movement. The more you move, the more likely you are to move your bowels. This is very helpful for digestions and elimination.

  • Try to relax when nature calls. Avoid straining during elimination. Not only will relaxing promote results, but straining leads to or aggrevates hemorrhoids, plus it can be painful. While using the toilet, place your feet up on a short stool during your bowel movement (similar to the squatting position) to lessen straining. This will help with taking pressure off of your bowel and pelvic floor area, relax the anal area and relieve strain during voiding, thus preventing or relieving hemorrhoidal problems.Try to breathe the stool out, allowing it to move slowly and stretch tissue gently as it passes through the rectum and anal opening. Try to let your bowel do the pushing and only push when you absolutely have to do it, but gently. Again, do not strain.

  • Follow a low-fat diet. Eat no fried foods.

  • Try some of the suggestions above. They are good suggestions for constipation. Muesli is a good alternative to bran cereals and will work after a few days of using it.

  • Avoid foods that stimulate secretions by the mucous membranes, such as dairy products, fats, and spicy foods.

  • Do not consume dairy products, soft drinks, meat, white flour, highly processed foods, salt, coffee, alcohol, or sugar. These foods are difficult to digest and have little or no fiber.

  • Eat prunes or figs. These are the best natural laxatives. Prune juice, apricot nector and other bulky-fiber-pulpy fruit juices are excellent for assisting with this problem.

  • Eat smaller portions - no large, heavy meals or high-fat foods.

  • Consume Barley juice, Green Foods supplements, Kyo-Green, or Wheatgrass for Chlorophyll. These supply important nutrients needed for repair and immune response.

  • Chlorella is a green single-celled microalgae that contains the highest concentrations of chlorophyll known. Chlorella also supplies high levels of Beta-Carotene, Mixed Carotenoids, Vitamin C, Iron and Protein. Green Algae Chlorella is helpful as a support for long-term debilitating systemic conditions which lower energy and resistance; such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, allergies, and infections.

  • Do not consume products containing mineral oil, which can interfere with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Also avoid taking Epsom salts, milk of magnesia, and citrate of magnesia, Which draw volumes of fluid into the intestines and wash out minerals from the body.

  • If you use laxatives, especially if you are a heavy laxative user, you should take Acidophilus to replace the "friendly" bacteria. The continued use of laxatives cleans out the intestinal bacteria and leads to chronic constipation. Kyodophilus and Bifidus supplements are helpful for regulating digestion.

  • Psyllium seed is helpful for constipation. If you take psyllium seed, be sure to take it with a full glass of water.

  • Flaxseed Oil or freshly ground Flaxseeds help to soften stools. Freshly ground flaxseeds have a pleasant, nutty taste and can be sprinkled over cereals, salads, and other foods.

  • It can help to do a dietary fast periodically. However, fasting is not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

    SITZ BATH PREPARATION

    A sitz bath may be recommended after every bowel movement if you are having problems with hemorrhoids. This involves sitting in shallow water, only deep enough to cover the hips and buttocks. Prepare an infusion of the herb, making 8 cups (4 ounces of dried herb in 1/2 gallon of boiling water, steeped for 8 hours). Separate the liquid from the herbs and pour it into a shallow basin or pan. Sit in this for 15 minutes at least twice a day. Do not worry about getting every hemorrhoid wet. The herbs are absorbed through the skin and work without direct contact. Most women will experience pain relief with the first sitz bath, and the hemorrhoids often shrink and disappear within a few days. This can be repeated as often as is necessary, using the same liquid over and over again. Comfrey, Witch Hazel, Plantain and White Oak herbs are good choices for an herbal sitz bath.

  • Sitz Bath Health Therapy Information



  • SEA GRAPE HERBAL PRODUCTS

    Sea Grape (Coccoloba uvifera) is a beautiful tree that is native to the Caribbean beaches. It belongs to the buckwheat family (Polygonaceae), along with rhubarb (Rheum rhaponticum), wild rhubarb (Rumex hymenosepalus), buckwheat (Fagopyrum sagittatum), and a huge genus of California herbs and shrubs called wild buckwheat (Eriogonum). Although it is not related to grapes or even a member of the grape family (Vitaceae), the sea grape produces clusters of edible berries that greatly resemble true grapes. The sea grape is native to the Florida Keys, islands of the Caribbean region, and the Caribbean shores of Central America. On exposed, windy shores it grows as a sprawling shrub but in more sheltered areas it grows as a tree, reaching a height of 50 feet (15 m). The ripe fruits are sour, but they contain large amounts of pectin which makes them especially useful for jellies and jams. Some historians have suggested that the sea grape was one of the first beach plants encountered by Columbus when he arrived in the Caribbean region in the fifteenth century.

    Coccoloba uvifera, commonly called seagrape or baygrape, is cultivated for its fruit. It is native to coastal beaches in southern Florida and the Caribbean. Seagrape trees are 6.5 to 26 feet (2 to 8 meters) in height, with smooth, yellow bark, and red-veined green leaves that turn entirely red as they age. Their fruit is purple when ripe and grows in grape-like clusters, and each fruit contains a large pit. The fruit can be eaten fresh, but is also used to make jam. The fruits are tasty. According to Bush Medicine of Belize, Central America and the Caribbean, Sea Grapes are said to be especially good if you have an upset stomach. Children used to eat them as a sweet treat, but now the most of the local children prefer candy. Seagrape trees are cultivated as an ornamental plant, as well as for their fruit. They are resistant to wind and highly tolerant of salt and drought. C. uvifera is pollinated mainly by honeybees.
