Homeopathy treatment for constipation
Not answering the call of nature may result in chronic constipation which leads to over worked kidneys.
Constipation can be either acute (short duration) or chronic (long duration).
Almost everyone at one time or another has suffered from occasional constipation. It may be caused by a sudden change in diet, pregnancy, travel, or stress.
Functional constipation is a condition in which no anatomical cause is found. It can last, from months to years. Symptoms include hard feces, difficulty having a bowel movement, straining when passing a stool, sensation of fullness after a bowel movement, intestinal pain, and discomfort. It may be caused from not answering the urge to go, lack of exercise, or insufficient fiber and liquid in the diet.
Spastic constipation, also known as irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is an irritation of the intestine caused by high levels of stress. It is characterized by recurrent abdominal pain associated with diarrhea alternating with constipation.
Constipation can also be organic, due to a physical change in an organ.
Organic constipation is caused by an obstruction to the passage of stools. It may result from scar tissues, inflammatory conditions, tumors, or cancer of the bowels.
Homeopathic Treatment Goal
A person who suffers from chronic constipation can be sure that every cell and tissue
in his body is intoxicated. Why?
The longer feces stay in the colon, the more water is absorbed from them. This causes the stools to become hard and difficult to pass. As bacteria and toxins build up in the colon, they begin to permeate and intoxicate the cells. The homeopathic goal is to regulate the bowels back to normal function and to detoxify intoxicated cells.
