If this day can not defecate, make sure to wake up early tomorrow. Food digestion process has taken place at night, and then the rest of the digestion will be removed in the morning. When you wake up late aka during the day to make a signal to defecate also “dead”.

In addition to hot drinks can also try a cup of coffee. According to research conducted by Rao, the caffeine content in coffee triggers intestinal contractions 60 percent stronger than warm water.

“There are compounds in coffee which triggers the production of certain hormones that help the body remove dirt,” said Rao.

Rao often advised his patients who had difficulty defecating to use imagination techniques. “Imagine there is a body part that hold water. Then, slowly open it, and then remove how much to be desired,” said Rao pointed out.

According to Rao, there is a connection between the body with the mind. Now with this imagination technique, can help defecate can come out.

Fortunately, I’ve never had an issues. It’s always helpful to have lots of fiber and water in your diet.


Great tips. I’m always shocked when some clients share how long between defecations. Eat more fiber, drink more water and move more.


Ooohhhh…a Perineal Massage is quite something, I must say. I will try it out.

That’s interesting about the coffee. I do like my water warm as opposed to cold, most of the time.

For me, warm water early in the morning has always helped. I have never tried other ways but would definitely try if warm water doesn’t work.
