Many of us might have dealt with a painful and annoying symptom, and those who never experience it will never understand how uncomfortable it can be. Before getting to how to get rid of it, let’s get the correct understanding of what constipation is and how it can happen.
First, we need to understand the work of the colon. When food is moved from the small intestine to the colon, the colon will absorb water and nutrients before letting out the rest as feces. Throughout the day, the colon creates consistent bowel movements to move the feces to the rectum. During the process, the colon continues to absorb the fluid from the feces, and when the colon absorbs too much fluid or the bowel movements aren’t normal, the feces will get dry and harden, making it difficult to get out of your body. The result is constipation. Those who suffer from constipation may excrete only three times a week and during the process of releasing excrement, it may feel painful and there may be a need to push hard. The feces of those with constipation are usually dry and rough. Moreover, constipation might cause extra gas in your stomach that leads to discomfort and a bloated stomach.
Now that we understand the issue of constipation, let’s move to its causes so that we get the proper understanding to fix the problem at the source. The usual cause of constipation is the lack of fiber in your diet. A rushed lifestyle makes people eat fast food and neglect having enough healthy fiber like vegetable and fruit. In the elderly, the lack of movement can also cause constipation. Taking medicine with some related side effects can also cause abnormal bowel movements, but there may be other causes as well, such as some changes in your body due to stress or pregnancy. Constipation may be part of another sickness or it could be a problem in the bowel system itself.
So, what are the treatments for constipation?
If the symptoms are not severe, the proper treatments can begin with simple changes in your daily routine and behavior, which make up the best way to ease and get rid of constipation.
