There is a new DRUG FREE option to treat constipation that was just approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.
This is a first-of-its-kind capsule. It measures about the size of a regular pill but instead of releasing medication it will vibrate. This is to stimulate the colon help get things moving.
The logic behind the treatment is that a vibrant pill gets taken around bedtime then travels the same route as food through the body. The pill will reach the large intestine in 14 hours later, then will begin vibrating for three seconds on, three seconds off.
The vibrating pills then stimulate specialized nerve cells in the gut to trigger muscle contractions to squeeze everything through the gut. Once the pills have done their job, the body just poops them out, and they’re flushed away.
