  • Delayed transit of solid wastes through colon, resulting in irregular, infrequent or difficult bowel movements; the longer faeces stay in the colon, the more water is absorbed from them, the harder they become, and the more straining is required to pass them; the risk of faucal toxins passing into the bloodstream and adversely affecting the metabolism of the rest of the body is also increased. Though conditions such as cancer of the colon or rectum Irritable bowel syndrome, Deverticular disease, Anal fissure and piles may contribute to difficult or painful movements, the root cause of constipation is usually dietary - not enough fiber, not enough fluids, a lack of Vitamin B1, B5, B6, potassium, magnesium and zinc, too much animal protein (meat, eggs), too many dairy products, too much Vitamin D, too much aluminum, and too much vinegar, pepper, salt and spices.


  • If diet is not at fault, cause may be eating meals too fast, not taking enough exercise, tension, Anxiety, Depression, delaying or not regularly obeying the urge to open the bowels, taking antibiotics or abusing laxatives (both of which upset balance of micro-organisms in gut), abuse of certain over-the-counter drugs, especially cough mixtures, hypothyroidism, liver malfunction leading to inadequate bile production, impairment of nerves supplying colon due to spinal abnormality or injury. . .
