10 Remedies for Constipation

Kathryn Adel September 28, 2020 , , ,

Constipation is an intestinal disorder that is characterized by difficult, infrequent, or incomplete defecation and Bristol 1 or 2 type stools. It can be defined as an individual having less than three stools per week. However, some people may be constipated and still go to the bathroom daily. Chronic constipation affects up to 27% of the world’s population, 75% of whom are women. It can be caused by a variety of factors including motility disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, hypothyroidism, pregnancy, etc.), neurological effects (Parkinson’s disease, stroke, spinal cord disorders, etc.), changes in the gut microbiota or from side effects to medications (calcium antagonists for hypertension, opiates, antipsychotics, etc.).

There are four subtypes of constipation: constipation predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C), slow-transit constipation, chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) (also called functional constipation), and constipation due to pelvic floor dysfunction. There are different solutions to a constipation problem, the effectiveness of which varies depending on the type of constipation. Here are ten remedies for constipation.
