If you seldom move your bowels i.e less than 3 times a week, have difficulty in passing stools, perceive an incomplete evacuation of faeces when you do pass stools, or strain each time you visit the toilet, you might be suffering from chronic constipation. Anyone who suffers from at least two of the aforementioned symptoms over the past 3 months can be safely regarded as suffering from chronic constipation. Many sufferers commonly adapt to the unhealthy infrequent bowel movements and nfortunately assume it is just part of who they are. The truth is, chronic constipation poses a lot of danger to the health and might be an indicator of more serious medical problems such as hypothyroidism, irritable bowel syndrome, Parkinsons disease and diabetes. It may also result from use of some medications such as opioid analgesics and certain blood pressure medications. Pregnant women often experience constipation. Chronic constipation can also be caused by poor eating habits, food allergies and intolerances. When left unmanaged, chronic constipation can lead to intestinal obstruction, development of hemorrhoids, small intestinal bacteria overgrowth and development of colon cancer in the susceptible.
It is important that you or anyone around you suffering from this condition undergoes a Mayr-type detoxification, which aims to resolve the problem from its root rather than mere symptomatic relief.
