A large number of people wrongly believe themselves to be suffering from constipation if they do not get bowel movement everyday. An outcome of errant eating habits and sedentary lifestyle in most cases , constipation is a very common complaint and tends to be under – diagnosed. A large number of people with chronic constipation use over-the-counter laxatives and millions of dollars are spent annually to treat this condition. The problem with laxatives is that they provide only temporary relief and tend to be habit forming many times. Homeopathy can provide effective treatment for constipation, one that is safe yet non habit-forming.


•    Having a bowel movement fewer than three times per week.

Causes of Constipation:

Constipation, in most cases, is an outcome of faulty eating habits and lack of exercise. Normally, as the food gets digested, it passes from stomach through the small intestine into the large intestine. Most of the water from the remaining undigested food gets reabsorbed in the large intestine. If the large intestine (colon) absorbs too much of water due to slow movement of the undigested food, the stools that are formed become dry and hard.


•    Poor intake of fluids - drinking less of water and other fluids.

•    Less fiber in diet- Fiber is important in maintaining a soft, bulky stool

•    Ignoring the urge for stools when there is one

•    Sedentary lifestyle - not much of activity

•    Change in routine, travelling
