Constipation affects 20% of the US adult population.
Let's get to the bottom of this uncomfortable issue.
Changes cannot be accomplished and will not be forthcoming if the diet has not changed.” – Dr. Sebi.
Constipation is caused by food waste moving too slowly through the digestive system. This makes it difficult (or temporarily impossible) to pass solid waste and move your bowels comfortably.
Constipated people typically produce bowel movements no more than three times a week. Ideally, you should be moving your bowels once per day, or more. These signs indicate food waste is moving too slowly:
Abdominal pain after eating
Gas or bloating
Lower back pain
Passing hard or dry stools
Painful bowel movements
Stomach feeling full
Anxiety and fatigue
Constipation eventually impacts the whole body - waste putrefies and bacterial toxins build up, creating bowel inflammation.
Causes to Consider
Constipation is primarily caused by dietary issues, but there are other factors that impact bowel motility.
Lack of fiber is the most common cause of constipation - fiber cleanses the bowel and gives the muscles something to push against. Processed foods, alcohol, and caffeine also contribute to slow gut transit time - inflaming the bowel and making it sticky.
Eating too late in the day, physical inactivity, and dehydration are also major contributors. Waste moves when we move. Stress, anxiety and fear of painful bowel movements create a vicious cycle, making it even harder to go. If you can’t relax, mentally and physically, your bowels will remain 'uptight.' We hold onto our feelings in the gut and constipation often has emotional roots.
