Constipation Home Remedies and Natural Cures That Work

Constipation is a condition related to the passing of hard stool, difficulty or straining while passing stool, infrequent stools and a feeling of incomplete evacuation or emptying of bowel. Constipation is characterized by fecal impaction which is a condition in which stool hardens in the rectum, blocking completely the passage way. Constipation can also occur as a part of IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. Normally bowel movement decreases with age, and is limited to 21 times a week. When this rate falls to less than three bowel movements per week, the condition is recognized as constipation medically. In case of severe constipation, the patient moves bowel only one time per week.

Constipation causes the level of toxins to rise in the blood stream, and in the long run may lead to diseases like appendicitis, rheumatism, arthritis, high blood pressure, cataract and even cancer. Slow passage of digesting food through any part of intestine is the prominent cause of constipation. Also suppressing urge to defecate frequently, taking a diet with low fiber content, insufficient intake of water, lack of physical activity, insufficient chewing, abdominal muscle weakness due to sedentary habits, over use of laxatives, hormonal imbalances may lead to constipation.
