The use of carbonated soft drinks to east constipation
Constipation is the difficult passage of dry hardened feces.
Traditional Chinese doctors have recommended that stooping rather than sitting on a toilet will help the dry and hardened feces exit.
Sometimes, the feces is so hard and dry that all pushing efforts seem to fail. A healthy alkaline constitution keeps feces dry and prevents the accumulation of moisture in the feces. The feces hardens and becomes dry. If the feces is alkaline, it will not be watery and it will not smell.
One can soften the feces by drinking carbonated soft drinks, especially the colorless drinks such as Mountain Dew, Sprite, or artificially colored soft drinks.
