Constipation is a condition in which the bowel movement is slow, infrequent, or hard to pass through. The stool during constipation is often hard and dry. This condition causes the accumulation of toxins inside the intestines and in the body.

To help the digestion system function optimally and encourage normal stool movement, the body must remove waste and toxins effectively. When our body's waste removal systems do not work properly, the toxins accumulate in the liver, and inside our fatty and connective tissues. Excess toxins in the body weaken the immune system and increase inflammation, oxidation, and aging processes.

The intestine is the most important detoxication system in the body. Its normal activity is the basis for the optimal functioning of the rest of our body systems. The conventional approach determines constipation when there is no stool for over two days. While Naturopathic medicine considers a condition as constipation when the frequency of stools is lower than once a day.

In general, when there are less than three bowel movements a week, it is most likely constipation. Often the hard dry stool is accompanied by strain and pain and can sometimes even create a rupture in the anus. Prolonged constipation can cause various health problems such as hemorrhoids, anal fissures, headache, nausea, abdominal swelling and pain, lack of appetite, exhaustion, skin problems, and weakness of the immune system.. 


Natural treatment

In order to treat constipation, it is important to understand its source. During the meetings, I diagnose the reason for constipation, whether it's a primary condition or a secondary condition as a result of another health disorder. There are many ways to improve the stools naturally, without taking laxative medications. The treatment plan is through a personalized diet alongside herbs and dietary supplements, while the aim is improving the digestion, the breakdown, and absorption of food, speeding up metabolism and removal of waste from the body, regulating the intestinal activity, balancing the gut microbiome and provide practical tools to prevent constipation recurrence.
