Ayurveda says that constipation occurs when the Vata level in the body becomes imbalanced. When Vata is cold and dry, it results in a disturbance in the stool movement across the colon. The remedy is to warm the body through oil, herbs, and hydration to lower down the excess Vata. Ayurvedic medicine for constipation contains vital herbs and ingredients that can help counter Vata’s cold qualities.
Constipation occurs when the colon mops up too much water from the stool, making it hard for it to pass out of the body. The food moves through the digestive tract after the digestion and the absorption of the nutrients. The partial digestive food is then passed on from the small intestine to the colon. The role of the colon is to absorb water from this partial digestive food and create waste in the form of stool. In the event of constipation, food slowly passes through the tract which means enough time for the colon to absorb water. Accordingly, the stool becomes hard and difficult to pass out.
If you have constipation, learn that you are not the only one in this battle of accumulated stool in your stomach. It is one of the common gastrointestinal problems every human face once in their lifetime. People of all ages may have occasional instances of infrequent bowel movement, but it is just that certain people may have it more frequently, leading to chronic constipation.
Age: Those who are older have more instances of constipation because of lower metabolism or weakness of the contracting muscles near their digestive tract.
Pregnant woman: Changes in the woman’s hormones also results in constipation. The fetus in the womb squeezes the intestines, making it hard for the stool to pass out.
Patients: The patients who have some underlying neurological disorders.
People with low-fiber intake: Fiber promotes bowel movements. If you consume less fiber, then your odds of having constipation are more.
