Bowel Movement Overview
Bowel movements are not something we pay much attention to until something goes wrong with our digestion. Regular bowel movements are an indicator of and vital to one’s good health. Irregular bowel movements are an indicator of and can cause other related health problems. When the bowels are moved every day the toxins in them are also eliminated from our bodies.
Causes Of Constipation
A person who does not pass motion regularly and who has difficulty passing motion is referred to as constipated. This is generally defined as a person who passes motion fewer than three times a week. This could be caused by something as simple as an improper diet or a more serious blockage of the large intestine.
Constipation can cause related problems such as an anal tear called a fissure. It can also cause symptomatic haemorrhoids (also known as piles) which is the inflammation of the blood vessels around the anal area. Sometimes, the dry and hard stool can collect in the rectum or anus and cause a block or obstruction.
The primary cause of constipation is an improper diet. The fibre content in food helps to move the bowel content. Food that is highly processed or made from highly processed ingredients has very little fibre content. One must be sure to include plenty of whole grains, nuts, lentils, fresh fruit and vegetables in one’s diet. One must also maintain an adequate intake of water and fluids and limit the intake of alcohol, coffee and carbonated drinks.
When a person is sedentary or spends most of their time confined to a bed or a chair it makes constipation worse. A sudden change in routines, set habits and diet which might be experienced due to long-distance travel also causes constipation for some people. It has been found that the incidence of constipation rise with increasing age. People with an existing condition of IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome also fluctuate between periods of suffering from diarrhoea to being constipated.
Problems with the colon can also cause constipation. These problems include hernia, diverticulitis, structural problems and blockages, cancerous tumours, scar tissue formation and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Some people also ignore the body’s natural urge to have a bowel movement and this results in constipation.
Ayurveda’s View Of Constipation
The Ayurvedic school of thought is that evacuating one’s bowels properly and regularly has a huge impact not only on the health of a person but also on their sense of well being. The Agni or the digestive fire of the body is most active during the day time while the sun is in the sky. The day time is when our body absorbs things. It is best to eliminate the waste that the body has generated in the morning so that it does not get absorbed into the body during the day. A proper bowel movement should ideally leave a person feeling light and relaxed. Ayurveda also states that constipation is the result of improper diet, unhealthy gastrointestinal system, stress, dehydration and the habit of ignoring the natural urges to have a bowel movement.
The Ayurvedic perspective of constipation is linked to the doshas. The Vata dosha when imbalanced causes excessive dryness in the body which also dries out the digestive waste causing constipation. Pitta when excessive can cause too much heat in the body and result in dryness. When the Vata and Pitta Doshas are both imbalanced it increases the drying out effect. It is the Vata called Apana Vata that causes the downward motion for elimination that governs bowel movements. When there is a Kapha imbalance it causes mucus or undigested food (Ama) to obstruct the bowel causing constipation.
Ayurveda recommends that certain habits should be encouraged to prevent constipation. One must have the largest meal around noon when the sun and therefore the digestive fire or Agni in the body is at its highest. One should avoid stress and too much travel and eat every meal peacefully without too many distractions. The foods that should be avoided will be recommended based on the exact Dosha imbalance that is causing the problem. One should also maintain an adequate intake of fibre and water.
