How Does Constipation Happen?

It occurs when the stool in your colon gets dehydrated. When there is less water in the body then the stool becomes very hard and it becomes very difficult to poop. It happens when our water intake is reduced and we include less fiber in our diet. The other main causes of constipation are a sedentary lifestyle, obesity or lack of exercise.

How can I cure constipation?

Drink Plenty of Water: Constipation occurs due to dehydration in the colon so keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This will keep stools soft and it will be easy to evacuate the bowel.

Get fiber through fruits and vegetables: Increase fiber intake in your diet. Take natural fiber from fruits and vegetables. Having a diet rich in fiber will make the stools soft and keeps the bowel movement easy. Also, fruits and vegetables contain water so it helps to prevent constipation.

Do physical activities: Keep yourself active throughout the day by doing physical activities such as walking, exercising, swimming or running. When you keep yourself moving then it puts force on intestines and it then helps to evacuate easily.

Be stress-free: Stress is the other main cause of constipation. So be stress-free and positive to be constipation free.

Complications of Chronic Constipation:

Hemorrhoids or Piles: Due to constipation there is increased pressure on veins or blood vessels so it may lead to hemorrhoids or piles.

Fissure: Hard stools may cause tear near the anal opening which makes passing stools very difficult.

Rectal prolapse: Straining to have a bowel movement for a long period of time may cause the rectum to stretch and protrude from the anus.
