As many as sixty percent of people have bowl
movement problems in their life time. This can also be caused by spinal
cord injuries and after surgery. It can be as high as seventy five
percent in children with cerebral palsy that
have chronic constipation. many people that have a neurological
problems will have problems because the brain
nerve functions are disrupted between the brain and the bowel.
People will have constipation from different medicine that for a short
time slow down the bowel thus causing them
to not have a bowel movement for several days. The nerves that push
content through the intestines may also be
affected. This slows down the bowel movement through the lower
intestine which indicates the need for a better
life style in social function such as proper diet and exercise.
human body is made for the movement of waste
products from an upright position due to gravity so being in an
upright position moves the contents downward.
If you have an upright posture this will create more space for the
intestine to move in the chest and abdomen. This
space will create better digestion and movement of the bowels and will
help relieve constipation. Even if your
movement is limited just getting up and moving will get your system
working. If you can adding dynamic activities
will improve your bowel movements and help eliminate constipation.
Drinking plenty of water keeps the bowels
lubricated and eating the proper foods help.
This is a topic that normally isn't 'proper' to talk about, but for
those of us that experience it, it needs to be
talked about! Due to many different prescription medications and their
side effects, I have a very difficult time
moving my bowels! I have tried so many things, OTC and prescription,
including what my doctor told me to do,
taking up to 4-5 stool softeners per day! way too many pills and it
still wasn't helping at all!
Then I saw an advertisement for Digestive Advantage and decided there
would be no harm in trying it! I did, and
have not stopped taking it since! Before taking this, I was lucky to
be able to move my bowels once a week,
sometimes less often, and always very painfully! Now, I hardly ever
have pain, and go 3-4 times a week or more!
Finally almost normal and much healthier.
