Finding Your Unique Constipation Remedy

As a doctor, I have dealt with hundreds of patients who have gone through the trials of constipation, more laxatives, and further sickness.

Laxatives in particular cause a wide range of problems. The major problem is what they do to the bowel walls. They can damage them.

Long-term sufferers of constipation have far weaker bowel walls than the average American. The walls stop the nerves from working like they should, which makes the condition more serious.

I have witnessed the effects of the traditional ways of dealing with constipation many times. It’s why I firmly believe in natural constipation remedies to cure this ailment.
Symptoms of Severe Constipation

Spotting constipation is the easy part of dealing with this problem. I will say that while the symptoms are the same for the large majority of patients, the causes can be completely different. It’s a mistake to believe similar symptoms indicate similar treatments. Severe constipation can completely debilitate the sufferer. I have seen people who have had to take time off work because the condition has become so painful.

If you think you have constipation, look for these main symptoms: Painful bowel movements. They’ll be infrequent and even after struggling and straining you might not be able to have a successful bowel movement.
  • Abdominal pain. Pain in the abdomen occurs due to the irritated digestive system. In more severe cases, it might even be swollen.
  • General pain. It’s not easy to put general pain down to constipation, so look for the other symptoms before coming to any conclusions.
  • Vomiting. This can also be linked to other conditions. Vomiting is rarer but it does happen.
  • A loss of appetite. The stool remains in your digestive system. It contributes to a feeling of ‘fullness’. Sufferers sometimes find themselves skipping meals and having reduced portions as they don’t feel hungry.
  • The aforementioned loss of appetite sometimes leads to a feeling of weakness. While you don’t feel hungry or interested in eating, your body still needs its nutritional requirements fulfilled.
  • Remember you will sometimes pass stools. These stools will change in consistency from a conventional bowel movement. You should notice they’re abnormally hard and lumpy. They’ll usually be very small and might even have some blood in it. The force required to dislodge them can damage the walls of the anus.

Causes of Severe Constipation

Acute constipation has many causes. I prefer to categorize them into bodily and dietary causes, to make it simpler for my patients to understand. Now, I’m not going to go through the hundreds of contributing factors. I’ll begin with dietary. This is where you prevent your digestive system from getting the nutrients it needs to function correctly. A lack of water intake reducing lubrication and a decrease in fiber can contribute towards the condition. Dairy products, overuse of laxatives, and a chaotic diet are another three factors in constipation.

I should also take some time to mention the effect of medications. Antacid medications containing aluminum and calcium have undergone scientific studies. They proved these play a major part in the clogging of the digestive system.

What I call bodily causes take longer to treat using both a natural constipation remedy and a traditional remedy. Certain neurological conditions play havoc with the bowel’s nerve systems. Other diseases causing problems include hypothyroidism and multiple sclerosis. Your lifestyle could also lead to major problems. Depression and stress are frequent cases I see. They’re so closely linked together one often influences the other.

I must stress most instances of serious constipation occur over a long period of time. It’s rare for someone to suddenly develop such a severe case of constipation. The longer you avoid effective treatment the more difficult passing stools becomes.

Dealing with dietary conditions is a matter of administering natural constipation remedies and changing the way you look at what you put into your body. I will educate you and inform you as to why this keeps happening. Bodily conditions occur due to diseases and what you take in. While I can’t cure long-term diseases, I can reduce the severity of your constipation and decrease the chances of you experiencing it again.
