Digression to physiology

What helps the person to empty intestines in time? It is established that the act of a defekation depends on the following factors:

of the Reason of locks during pregnancy and after the delivery

during pregnancy the hormones softening sheaves have the weakening effect as well on intestines muscles therefore it becomes more difficult for it to get rid of the contents.

Besides, during pregnancy for prevention of anemia (deficiency of hemoglobin) are appointed by the preparations containing iron which to some extent promote emergence of locks. Besides, sedative and diuretics aggravate locks. The first are applied to treatment of toxicosis of the first half of pregnancy, threat of interruption of pregnancy and in other cases. Diuretic preparations are used for treatment of a gestoz of the second half of pregnancy. Aggravates a lock and application of spazmolitichesky preparations (such as BUT - ShPA).

In a standing position or lying the easy movements of any palm it is necessary “to pass“ from the right groin up to a liver, then to carry out a palm above a navel and to go down to the left groin. From time to time the movements should be accelerated, giving them a type of easy vibration and waviness. Massage lasts 10 - 15 minutes. It is better to date it by then when there is a desire to empty intestines to develop a conditioned reflex on a defekation. Introduction to back pass of a candle with glycerin also can help with it . 20 minutes later after this procedure it is necessary to go to a toilet even if there are no desires on a defekation. It is necessary to stay in it 10 - 15 minutes with a careful natuzhivaniye and attempt to empty intestines. When the reflex is restored, candles are cancelled.
