What is Constipation?

Constipation is the most common gastrointestinal complaint, resulting in 2.5 million doctor visits annually. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC), which is part of the National Institute of Health (NIH), "constipation is defined as having a bowel movement fewer than three times a week."

HMM, not so! I'm afraid I have to disagree.

Constipation can be mild, moderate, too severe. Having a bowel movement fewer than three times a week is severe constipation. Mild to severe constipation puts you at risk for all kinds of health problems related to the ongoing condition of fecal toxicity, which is precisely what constipation is.

Our bodies are designed to eliminate fecal waste on a regular and ongoing basis. Ideally? For every significant meal we consume, there should be a bowel movement to represent that meal.

Therefore, if you consume three meals per day, you should have three bowel movements, usually within an hour of the meal itself. At the very least, you should produce at least one significant sizable bowel movement every twenty-four hours.

This bowel movement should come out easily, and there should be no straining. It should be like a long-formed mass and be medium to dark brown. When you are done pooping, you should feel empty and complete.

How common is constipation?

 

Constipation is common among all ages and populations in the United States. About 16 out of 100 adults have symptoms of constipation. About 33 out of 100 adults ages 60 and older have symptoms of constipation.
