Natural Constipation Remedies May Help Avoid Bigger Problems
Bowel movements cease being regular
. Pain when having a bowel movement
. Temporary problems with hemorrhoids
. Appearance of anal fissures
. Bright red blood in stool
Stool may become small and compacted and you may even notice diarrhea or a white milky discharge while experiencing constipation problems for extended periods. It is not common for constipation problems to persist for more than a few days but a doctor should be consulted if symptoms do not disappear after 4-5 days. There are times when the bowel movements do not normalize and symptoms persist for several days without lessening.
In many cases, chronic constipation symptoms will intensify until it feels like the abdomen is about to burst. It is urgent that a doctor be consulted immediately because severe constipation is a very serious condition that can lead to death when left untreated.
It is vital to eliminate stool from your colon and gastrointestinal tract because waste is filled with bacteria and other harmful toxins that will be reabsorbed into your blood if they are not evacuated during normal bowel movements. In time, these toxins will spread into your bloodstream where they can then really cause a host of medical problems.
In any condition that causes dehydration (diabetes) or some disruption in the muscles of the colon and large intestines, the potential for constipation is present. In some cases, a sudden change in diet such as starting the South Beach or Atkins program may lead to constipation problems. Diets that are low in carbohydrates tend to be low in dietary fiber as well because many products banned are those high in fiber, such as:
. Green leafy vegetables
such as spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts,
. Carrots and other orange vegetables
. Kidney or Pinto Beans
. Whole Grain Cereals/Breads
Short term constipation is a very frequent medical problem but it can be difficult to see a doctor when the condition arises due to the fact that it tends to last for only a day or two. It is common for people to take laxatives when seeking short term constipation relief but there can be a number of problems with taking laxatives, including:
. Reliance upon laxatives for normal bowel movements
. Damage to colon muscles
. Weakened immune system
. Increased susceptibility to disease and other medical problems
Laxatives tend to be made with harsh chemicals or other dangerous active ingredients that tend to cause more damage than good. All natural constipation remedies help cleanse the bowels and make future symptoms less likely in the future.
