One of the most common gastro-intestinal complaints, constipation affects almost 2% of the population on a chronic basis globally. A large number of people wrongly believe themselves to be suffering from constipation if they do not get a bowel movement every day. The medical understanding of the disorder 'constipation' is, however, slightly different from this. Having less than three bowel movements a week is termed as constipation. In addition, having hard stools or requiring to strain at stools for a long time also constitutes as constipation.
An outcome of errant eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle in most cases, constipation is a very common complaint and tends to be under-diagnosed, as most patients usually prefer trying a lot of home remedies rather than reporting for treatment. The belief that constipation leads to the accumulation of toxins in blood also results in a significant abuse of laxatives and purgatives by patients.
Homeopaths have treated constipation with good results for many years now and the response to treatment is very promising in homeopathy. The goodness of homeopathy also lies in the fact that medicines are safe and non habit-forming, unlike conventional laxatives, which create a dependence in patients.
