Natural Remedies for Constipation
Constipation is one of few topics that you discuss freely even with family and friends. The problem is literally subdued behind closed doors. But people who suffer know the painful and frustratingly long hours spent on the water closet.
Constipation can be an on-off thing for most lucky people some time during their life and can be caused by dehydration (less water intake during the day), medicines, illness, lack of fiber in food, etc. Symptoms might last for a day or two and getting back to normal healthy routine gets the system back on track. If things don’t get back to normal within 3 days seeking medical advice is recommended.
For many unlucky ones the suffering is a daily routine and is one of the most common and easily noticeable signs that something is not right with the stomach, intestines, or general digestive system. Constipation is not a disease or illness as such, though it can be a symptom of other digestive tract disorders or infections.
Treating it with chemical-laced laxatives and OTC medicines can provide temporary relief but the impact on gut flora and the GI tract can be damaging in the long run. Repeated use of these medicines can impede the body natural process and can cause ulcers, and other problems. Going natural allows the body to recover and heal itself without any side effects.
