Easy Bowel Movements with Ayurveda

What is Constipation?

Constipation is a very common gastrointestinal problem with passing stool which is usually caused by lack of dietary fiber, fluids and exercise. Constipation generally means passing fewer than three stools a week or having a difficult time passing stool. It becomes a serious disorder if not treated properly. Severe episodes of Constipation can lead to problems like Anal fissures or the growth of Hemorrhoids.

Ayurveda describes Constipation as Vibandh, which is caused by imbalance of Vata dosha in the body. Older people and Women are seen more as sufferers of constipation due to changes in diet, medication, and limited movement.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest and most respected medical traditions in the world. It originated in India and is used and practised by millions, both in India and around the world. Ayurveda is a natural approach to health and wellness that focuses on balance between body and mind.
