Each of us at least once felt uncomfortable due to digestion, experiencing constipation, diarrhea or bloating. Millions of people suffer from constipation, of which three-quarters are women. Unfortunately, this problem is usually ignored because of two reasons: people are ashamed of it and they think it cannot be resolved.
Constipation is manifested by reducing the number of stools, stool’s hardness and difficult bowel movements. The causes are usually linked to changed common andeveryday’slifestyle (travel, temporarily moving, overflowing meals), taking certain medications (e.g. sedatives or medications that suppress acid) or diseases such as diabetes, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, etc. Pregnancy can also be one of the causes.
Constipation is Not Harmless
Constipation can cause many other very nasty diseases such as anal fissures (anal canal lining damage), rectal ulcer and, very often, hemorrhoids. This creates a closed circuit for which the condition is constantly worsening. Constipation occurs occasionally or turns into a chronic problem which persists for more than six weeks.
This health condition is often accompanied by fatigue, because the organism is sufficiently releasing toxins from the intestinal contents. When the passage of intestinal contents is slowed down, intestinal mucosa absorbs water longer than usual, thus stool becomes hard.
