Herbal Treatment for Bowel Problems

What causes constipation?

Most people have at least one bowel movement a day. However, bowel habits vary from person to person and less frequent bowel movements are not necessarily a sign of constipation.

Most doctors will agree, however, that anyone who has a bowel movement less than three times a week and passes hard stools can be said to be constipated.

Constipation happens to everyone occasionally, but some people suffer from chronic constipation which makes their lives a misery and each bowel movement a huge relief!

Occasional constipation is usually caused by diet, lack of exercise, stress or drinking insufficient liquids.

Chronic constipation can be caused by a variety of factors, including digestive disorders like IBS, lack of fiber and fluid in the diet, depression, lack of exercise and some medical conditions like diabetes, colon cancer and hypothyroidism.

Constipation may also be a side effect of some prescription drugs for depression, high blood pressure and pain relief. In addition, many people have lost natural bowel movements due to the overuse and abuse of OTC and prescription laxatives.

Herbs can help!

Herbalists and naturopaths from cultures all over the world have used herbs for centuries to promote regular bowel movements, purify the system and treat constipation.

However, even some herbs are not suitable for regular use due to their excessively strong purgative effects.

Fortunately Native Remedies has the answer!
