Chronic constipation herbal remedy | bowel movement regularity

Constipation is considered to be a symptom rather than a disease. While we feel uncomfortable if even a day passes without a bowel movement, constipation is only said to occur if there are less than 3 bowel movements in a week. Severe constipation is less than 1 bowel movement in a week.

Discomfort can also be caused by hard stools or difficulty in passing stools. Generally as we age, bowel movements become less frequent.

The following are considered to be common constipation symptoms

  • Hard stools that are difficult to pass

  • Infrequent bowel movements

  • Prolonged straining

  • Flatulence

  • Nausea
