Along with heatwaves and scorching heat, summer also brings in constipation caused by dehydration. The sore temperature can drain the water away from your body, further making the stools hard and difficult to pass. And this time around, due to the pandemic and our restricted movements, the problem of constipation is likely to become more chronic these days. It is advised that one should drink water and other liquids, such as fruit and vegetable juices along with soups, to help the fiber work better.
While we know how to prevent constipation, it is very important to know what food items one should avoid, in case they are suffering from this stomach issue. It goes without saying foods with little or no fibre should be avoided. Ayurveda expert Dr Dixa Bhavsar advises her followers to maintain distance from the Three Cs, if they are constipated.
