Constipation Treatment

Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where a person experiences hard feces that are difficult to eliminate; it may be extremely painful, and in severe cases (fecal impaction) lead to symptoms of bowel obstruction. Causes may be dietary, hormonal, a side effect of medications, and anatomical.

Acupressure is often successful in improving the bowel movement. Sit comfortably or lie down, close your eyes and breath deeply when massaging the active points. Also try increasing fiber content in your diet by consuming more vegetables, fruit, whole meal bread and by adding linseeds.
