Constipation Relieved with Treadmill Desks

Movement such as walking with a treadmill desk will get your colon moving again. Walking has been shown to cure chronic constipation and reduce the risks of contracting colon cancer as well.

One study focused on inactive, middle aged individuals with chronic constipation which placed them on a program of 30 minutes a day of brisk walking. A majority of the study participants were completely cured regardless of whether they increased their intake of fiber and water.

As little as 30 minutes a day can cure constipation. Walking at a treadmill desk allows you to walk while you work. This allows people to walk for extended periods of time on a treadmill without experiencing boredom.
