A healthy diet and lifestyle can keep your bowels working regularly and prevent constipation. Some things to include are high fibre options like brown rice, wholemeal bread and wholewheat pasta, fresh fruit and vegetables, salads and increase your water intake. Things to cut back on or avoid are excess salty, sugary or fatty foods that dehydrate you and slow down your digestion, reduce tea, coffee and alcohol intake.
When you are going to the toilet avoid straining and lean forward from the hips to relieve the pressure on the blood vessels in and around the back passage.
