Comments, from patients with constipation, on the bowel movement. Proper functionality of the digestive and excretory organs is crucial for the human body to stay healthy, though the majority of the whole population has constipation. It affects about 30-50% of adults and 20-25% of children.
Constipation is a disruption of the functionality of the colon, which causes delayed or inefficient excretion of waste from the body.
Constipation causes these symptoms: nausea, loss of appetite, headache, bad breath, a plaque on the tongue, heartburn, insomnia, dizziness and so on. Reviews on colonic irrigation note the positive effect that the procedure has on the entire body.
The clinical picture of constipation depends not only on the causes but also on the tone of the intestine. Depending on whether it is elevated or lowered, constipation is categorised as being spastic or atonic.
Atonic constipation is characterized by sluggish peristalsis and reduced intestinal tone. As a result, stool moves very slowly through the intestines.
Atonic constipation is most often in people who live a sedentary lifestyle, often suppressing the urge to defecate and to regularly eat. This type of constipation is often found in elderly people due to age-related changes in intestine and sphincter tone.
Spastic constipation is caused by the consequences of muscle spasms, so the faeces are “clamped” and cannot properly move down. This type of constipation is accompanied by the sensation of heaviness from the accumulation of gases and faeces are excreted in small lumps. Spastic constipation is often due to increased intestinal tone, endocrine diseases or being under the influence of stressful situations too often.
The main causes of constipation in adults is malnutrition. Unbalanced nutrition combined with a lack of physical activity & fluid intake, provokes constipation.
When doctors prescribe drugs, be sure to read the instructions on the container, where all the possible side effects are must be indicated. Constipation may be one of them.
