Chronic constipation

Chronic constipation

When bowel movements turn into agony.

“I always feel stuffed, even between meals.” “I often need to push until it hurts.” “I never feel that my bowels have completely emptied.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their constipation and their incomplete bowel movements.

Bowel movements don’t go easily and do not occur daily. The stool is dry and hard. The compacted bowel generates bloating, a feeling of fullness, and stomachache, and the bowel movements tend to be painful. Many people experience only small changes at first. Their bowel movements seem to be normal — they just don’t happen daily.

It makes no difference whether the trigger is undernourishment, lack of liquids, too little fat in meals, lack of exercise or metabolic imbalances.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on constipation?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, constipation starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of constipation, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract. Everyone affected knows that the following experiences can serve as an amplifier or recurring trigger for the familiar symptoms: foods with too little fibre content, travel, stress or an unstable nervous system.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s constipation varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with complaints of constipation.

An increasing number of patients experience
that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of constipation, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of daily nutrition and behaviour can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can re-establish regular bowel movements.
