It is amazing to see so many people constipated. Many of them are aware of it due to issues such as toxicity or piles and thousands more go through life blissfully unaware of the fact that they are constipated. We are going to tackle the issue of constipation and just what it does to your body in this article. In a sort of related way, a constipated body will not be efficient and will most certainly not be as muscular and fat-free as a non-constipated one! Read on and see why…
Some people define constipation as not going to the toilet for more than a few days, others for more than a few weeks. For our purposes and for the sake of logic and health, we shall term constipation as anyone not going to the toilet at least once a day. If you are not going to the toilet every day, then you are constipated - make no mistake about it and be sure that it is NOT a healthy state to be in.
Constipation is most certainly not natural. If you are eating food on a daily basis, then you need to get rid of it. You cannot have toxic waste sitting in your bowels after a day. It is unhealthy and can start a chain of other unhealthy conditions including, piles, skin problems, bad breath and bloating.
Constipation almost always comes about from one or a combination of several factors. The most common of which are the following:
The above question was asked on purpose. You see, constipation is not a disease, but all too often doctors treat it like a disease and give you a "cure" for it in the shape of a pill or a suppository.
Almost always, people who suffer from constipation, suffer from it due to their lifestyle. You need to change your lifestyle to get rid of the problem. A pill can be a temporary measure, but it most certainly will not fix the problem long term.
Most people will suffer from constipation and its effects at some stage of their life. Many suffer from it all their lives. You need to recognise what it is and deal with it early on.
Some people need to tweak a couple of things, others need to make dramatic changes in their lives to get rid of the problem. Constipation can be related to things like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, so you need to find out what's causing that. It may be an intolerance to wheat, dairy products or just one individual ingredient or food - such as ketchup for example!
Sure, go to your doctor for a temporary fix, but do remember that constipation often comes back unless you change your lifestyle. Taking Senna tablets daily is not a fix to the problem and is most certainly not natural.
The body is capable of triggering itself to go to the toilet every day. You just need to give it the right tools for it to be able to do this daily.
Without wanting to sound like we are trying to connect a health problem to sports, constipation definitely does have an effect and possibly a major effect on your performance in the gym.
Think about it, constipated people are very often lethargic and have lower energy levels than others. When you carry around toxic waste in your body, you are not going to have as much energy as other people.
Having waste in your lower abdominal region will also not be very aesthetic. Depending on how constipated you are and for what period, you could look really bloated in your abdominal region and thus look like you are carrying more fat than you actually are.
If your body is not disposing of its waste efficiently, then it is not ready for the next batch of food. You are not helping your body's muscle building and fat-loss programme if you are constipated.
Depending on how constipated you are, this can be a matter of a couple of apricots and prunes or a real change in your lifestyle. Try some or all of what is suggested below. Please remember that constipated people often suffer from many conditions, including:
Here are some of the ways of beating constipation:
