There are two basic types of constipation - organic and functional.
Organic constipation is a result of some physical change, obstruction, or
distortion in your colon. This type of constipation needs immediate
attention from a doctor.

This article only covers Functional Constipation. This type of
constipation is a result of not following a proper diet, drinking enough
fluids, having good emotional health and not having a good lifestyle - a
lifestyle that promotes good movement of digested foods through the
intestines and colon.

Even though there are many definitions for constipation, constipation is
simply a condition where the fecal matter traveling through your colon
remains too long in your colon before traveling out the rectum.

Constipation is a symptom and not a disease. It is a condition that tells
you your colon is not working properly or that you have some underlying
gastrointestinal disease you are not aware of.

Constipation may be a warning that your diet and lifestyle are causing an
imbalance in your body. It is a symptom that many people ignore or that
many people try to eliminate by using unnatural and oftentimes dangerous
drugstore laxatives.

Drugstore laxatives should be avoided when you have constipation. They
can become habit-forming, damage your colon, and have nasty side effects
if used too long. They sometimes have the tendency of creating the
problem you are trying relieve - constipation.

To keep your body in chemical balance, it is important to use only
natural remedies for constipation. Natural remedies such as herbs and
foods bring into the colon those nutrients that can build up your colon
and reactivate your natural peristaltic action.

As you use natural remedies, keep in mind that one particular remedy may
not work for you. You may have to try a different remedy or increase
dosage of the one you are using. If you supply what your body needs by
using a specific remedy, then you will get results from using that
remedy.

Experimenting is part of finding out what remedy is best for you. There
are many different natural remedies you can choose from. Look on the
internet for "natural remedies for constipation" and you will find many
listings.

Keep in mind that most remedies should be used only for a short time, two
to four days and not longer than 2 weeks. They should only be used for
the time needed to clear your constipation. This might be just 4 or 5
times or sometimes it may take several weeks.

There are some herbal combinations that can be used for longer duration.
These combinations can improve your colon's health and get your bowels
moving again.

If you have constipation, the natural balance and function of your colon
has been affected. But, natural remedies can bring you colon back into
balance.
