Constipation is a very frustrating and painful disease. This disorder is very common among the people of all ages today. The general causes of this condition are inactive or effortless life styles and consumption of rich diet. For some people this condition can be temporary, but for many people constipation is a long term (chronic) problem.
If the condition lasts long the constipated person can develop hemorrhoids, which results into further complication and pain. Although people of all ages suffer from constipation, this disease is more common among older people and pregnant women.
Ayurveda believes that good 'Pachan Shakti' or digestive capability is absolutely vital for a person's good health. But if a person follows improper food habits that are not suited to the body type, then constipation, indigestion and other digestive problems arise.
The symptoms of constipation are as follows:
- Urge to pass the stool, but lack of ability to do so
