Constipation¬†refers to infrequent or hard stools, or difficulty passing stools. Constipation¬†may involve pain during the passage of a bowel movement, inability to pass a¬†bowel movement after straining or pushing for more than 10 minutes, or no bowel¬†movements after more than 3 days. Infants who are still exclusively breastfed¬†may go 7 days without a stool.
What causes constipation?
To understand constipation, it helps to know how the colon, or¬†large intestine, works. As food moves through the colon, the colon absorbs¬†water from the food while it forms waste products, or stool. Muscle¬†contractions in the colon then push the stool toward the rectum. By the time¬†stool reaches the rectum it is solid, because most of the water has been¬†absorbed.
Constipation occurs when the colon absorbs too much water or if the¬†colon‚Äôs muscle contractions are slow or sluggish, causing the stool to move¬†through the colon too slowly. As a result, stools can become hard and dry.¬†Common causes of constipation are
- Not enough fiber in the diet
- Lack of physical activity¬†(especially in the elderly)
- Irritable bowel syndrome-IBS
- Changes in life or routine such as¬†pregnancy, aging, and travel
- Abuse of laxatives
- Ignoring the urge to have a bowel¬†movement
- Specific diseases or conditions,¬†such as stroke (most common)
- Problems with the colon and rectum
- Problems with intestinal function¬†(chronic idiopathic constipation)
Symptoms of Constipation
The clinical definition of constipation is having any two of the¬†following symptoms for at least 12 weeks‚ÄĒnot always consecutive‚ÄĒin the previous¬†12 months:
- Straining during bowel movements

- Sensation of incomplete evacuation
- Sensation of anorectal¬†blockage/obstruction
- Fewer than three bowel movements¬†per week
Homeopathy¬†Treatment for Constipation

The latter may be¬†achieved by consuming more vegetables and fruit. In medicinal part Symptomatic Homeopathy¬†medicines acts well in case of chronic and Habitual constipation.
