General Constipation Information
Constipation is the difficulty of passing stools from the body. Regular bowel movements are essential for good health, but most people experience constipation at one time or another. The problem is usually remedied by simple lifestyle changes and better eating habits. Chronic constipation can result in a number of conditions, including bad breath, appendicitis, body odor, coated tongue, depression, diverticulitis, fatigue, gas, headache, hemorrhoids, hernia, indigestion, insomnia, malabsorption syndrome, obesity, varicose veins and abdominal cramping.

Possible Causes of Constipation
Constipation is usually caused by insufficient amounts of fiber and fluids in the diet. Inadequate exercise, advanced age, poor diet, schedule changes (such as during travel, holidays or big events), muscle disorders, structural abnormalities, bowel diseases, diabetes, kidney failure, poor muscle tone in the pelvic floor and neurogenic disorders can also lead to constipation. Constipation can also be a side effect of some medications, such as pain killers and antidepressants. Constipation is very common during pregnancy. Stress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive behaviors can also cause constipation.

Possible Symptoms and Complications of Constipation
Many people think it is optimal to have a bowel movement everyday, but this is just a guideline. Some people have bowel movements three times a day, while others move their bowels just three times a week. Each of these people are experiencing normal bowel habits. The term “normal” varies from person to person. In general, anyone who experiences straining, pellet-like stools, hard stools, cannot fully empty his bowels and has fewer than three bowel movements a week is considered constipated.


Complications of constipation include:

  • Hemorrhoids
  • Anal fissure
  • Diarrhea
  • Rectal bleeding, prolapse and hernia
  • Fecal impaction
  • Uterine hernia and prolapse

    Possible Lifestyle Changes for Constipation
    People can prevent and treat constipation by drinking plenty of water; eating a high fiber diet; avoiding high fat foods; eating plenty of fruits and vegetables; exercising more; relaxing during bowel movements and moving the bowels whenever the urge occurs. Avoid daily products, soft drinks, meat, white flour, highly processed foods, salt, coffee, alcohol and sugar. Gentle laxatives can also help move the bowels.
