What is Constipation

Constipation is a condition in which the stools become difficult or hard to pass. The person may experience pain and a sense of incomplete evacuation. The passage of time between bowel movements increases, and the person may need to strain or push during bowel movements.

It is characterized by infrequent bowel movements and difficulty with passing stools. Constipation can also be defined as fewer than three bowel movements in a week for an adult who has previously had an average number of bowel movements per day, or fewer than one stool every three days for children aged 3-10 years.

What Causes Constipation?

Constipation can be caused by many factors including lack of fiber in the diet, inadequate fluid intake, certain medications, pregnancy, childbirth, diarrhea, sitting for long periods of time, infections and a lack of exercise.

The Symptoms of Constipation

Common symptoms of constipation are infrequent bowel movements, pain while passing stool, hard stool that may need to be manually softened before passing it out from the rectum and anus.

It is not necessary to have these symptoms in order to be diagnosed with constipation. If a person’s diet does not contain enough fiber or fluids, they may experience constipation even if they do not have other symptoms.

How to Get Rid of Constipation With Natural Remedies

When it comes to dealing with a constipation issue, it is important to remember that every person has their own way of coping with the problem. Some natural remedies like exercise or adding more veggies to your diet can help you deal with this issue.

Also, drinking a lot of fluid and a belly massage may very well help prevent constipation and free up bowel movements.

This is all we have for you today.

Remember, God does not want you to suffer from constipation. He always wants the best for you, so if you are struggling with constipation, remember to pray and call upon God for healing while you still use the natural remedies.

Stay safe and be blessed.
