Natural Cures and Remedies for Constipation


Constipation is a condition a lot of people go through but unfortunately, few like to discuss it as there is a misconception that it is embarassing. This condition mostly occurs in all genders and age groups. Even though it's not really a serious matter, but it could become a health hazard over time if the patient doesn’t seek treatment.

Constipation occurs when your bowel movements become less frequent or extremely painful. For a normal person, the bowel movements range from three times a day to one or two times a week. No bowel movements for over three days causes constipation and the feces become harder and difficult to pass. Additionally, many individuals who go through these symptoms usually place pressure on the rectum area and this is why many of them experience bleeding as well.

The symptoms of constipation include:

1. Straining during bowel movements.
2. Hard stools for more than 25% of the time.
3. Incomplete evacuation.
4. Two or even fewer bowel movements in a week.
5. Abdominal and back pain.
6. Vomiting
7. Swollen abdomen
8. Pain while urinating.
9. Bleeding.
10. Finding it difficult to perform regular acitivites during the day and sitting down.

. Constipation is not caused due to a structural issue unlike what many people think. Instead, it is caused due to a disorder in bowel function. The causes of constipation can be:

• Less water intake.
• Low fiber in the diet.
• Disruption in regular routine often caused by travelling.
• Less amount of exercise and movemenst. This is more apparent among individuals who work from home.
• Consuming large amounts of dairy products. Constipation is more apparents for individuals who are allergic to diary products.
• Stress.
• Antacid medicines.
• Medicines like narcotics of heavy pain killers.
• Depression and anxiety.
• Eating disorders especially if the diet doesn’t consist of enough fibre.
• Pregnancy due to unusual movements.
• Colon cancer other other types of cancer.

Sometimes lack of muscle function is also the cause for constipation. Additionally, stress, changes in hormones and specific types of medications can make these symptoms worse, especially if the patient is suffering from other medical problems or isn’t following treatments properly. This is more apparent among individuals who suffer from excessive stress all of a sudden. Even though constipation is not a big hazard at the start , if its prolonged for more than two weeks it could require medical attention.

Constipation can also be caused by other medical problems. One of the causes of constipation is colon cancer and irritable bowel syndrome. If this is the cause , then that cancer can be diagnosed early and it could be treated easily. Even though there aren’t any special methods to diagnose and treat constipation but there are few things that your doctor might do. These methods include:-

• Blood tests that are performed to check if a hormonal imbalance is the cause behind constipation.
• Barium studies can be conducted to see if there is any obstruction of the colon involved here.
• Colonoscopy is another test to look for any structural obstruction of the colon.
• Stool tests and this is also going to assist doctors in predicting if other medical problems are available.

Most patients suffering from constipation don’t have any obvious symptoms of any of these diseases. They are likely to suffer from one of these problems if their condition develops:

1. Colonic Inertia: this is a disease in which the colon contracts poorly.
2. Obstructed defecation: there is a problem in passing stool.

There are numerous measures and lifestyle changes that can be implemented to manage these symptoms and completely eliminate them. These changes should be done in the diet consumed as well like avoiding spicy food as this is the main reason why constipation affects individuals in many situations. It is recommended to increase the amount of fibre in the diet as well and consume food such as fresh vegetables, fruits, and cereals. Keep in mind that fibre is very beneficial for individuals who suffer from constipation along with IBS as well.

Certain medications are going to be described to decrease symptoms such as pain and constipation. There are also psychological treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, relaxation or psychotherapy that are used and these are usually done by individuals who don’t prefer medications. Additionally, herbal therapies such as Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are used to manage these symptoms. Additionally, laxatives are going to be used to enhance bowel movements along with enhancing stool movements.
