“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.
