A HACK is going viral for claiming to ease constipation within minutes.

Some say it got their bowel movements going with ease, while others are more skeptical.

TikTok user Anita Tadavarthy shared her unique way of relieving constipation, which she noted plagues millions of people.

Her first video shows her putting her fists together and rubbing them together where the thumbs meet.

She says to do this for a couple of minutes twice a day while sitting on the toilet.

In another video, she claims that “stimulating this area causes stimulation of the large intestine”.

It’s based on acupuncture medicine, which Anita is a specialist in.

Acupressure - based on the traditional Chinese medicine practise of anctuputre - involves putting pressure on certain parts of the body in order to invigorate another part.

People who use it believe there is a network inside the body that connects specific organs to a certain pressure point.

Acupressure practitioners use their fingers, palms, elbows or feet, or special devices to apply pressure on acupoints and “restore balance”.

The skin between your thumb and forefinger is one of these points and is claimed to be connected to the large intestine.

Another is a spot behind the ear, which one doctor claimed rubbing could help you get to sleep quicker.

Dr Rabia De Latour, a gastroenterologist at NYU Langone, said she had “never heard” of the TikTok constipation trick before.

She told Health: "There is no proven link to rubbing your fists together that would stimulate a [bowel movement].

"Two things that often go without credit are adequate hydration and movement; simple movement of the body can stimulate gut motility.

"There are certain abdominal massage maneuvers and techniques and yoga poses that are thought to help.”

Everyone has probably experienced constipation at some point in their life, with common triggers including dehydration, a sudden change in diet or stress.

Sometimes it can be a consistent problem, for which the NHS recommends making some small tweaks.

“Making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle can help treat constipation,” it says.

“To make your poo softer and easier to pass: drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol, increase the fibre in your diet, add some wheat bran, oats or linseed to your diet. A daily walk or run can help you poo more regularly.”

When going to the toilet, give yourself plenty of time to relax.

Rest your feet on a low stool while on the toilet, and if possible, raise your knees above your hips - this is a more natural way to use the toilet (as is squatting) because it straightens the colon. 

People may find using various methods of acupressure helps to relieve pain, sickness or improve mood.

However, be cautious that there is no scientific basis as the ancient form of healing is very rarely studied in detail.

The NHS says: “Acupuncture practitioners – sometimes called acupuncturists – use acupuncture to treat a wide range of health conditions. 

“However, the use of acupuncture is not always based on rigorous scientific evidence.”

Regardless, acupuncture is sometimes available on the NHS as an alternative medicine for people with chronic tension headaches and migraines.

It is likely harmless, even if it does not work for everyone.
