At Dermacia Pharmacy, we know that there are many problems that can blight your daily life and stop you from feeling as happy or as healthy as you should be. While many of these ailments or complaints may not be the sort of thing you would want to trouble a doctor with, they can still have an impact on your overall health. This is where we are more than happy to provide you with assistance and in this regard, constipation is definitely something that can stop you from feeling at your best.
There are a number of ways in which you can combat constipation but at Dermacia Pharmacy, we believe that colonic irrigation and hydrotherapy are of great benefit. This style of treatment helps to remove accumulated waste from your colon, helping it to function better. This service can help to relieve and prevent constipation.
You will find that colonic irrigation is a treatment that is used to close waste from your bowels without the use of laxatives. Laxatives will often contain foods, herbal medicines or drugs and they are used to induce a movement or to loosen the bowels. Overuse of laxatives can often lead to a weakening of the colon and this may see people dependent on laxatives to continually clear their bowels.
Constipation can be painful
Anyone suffering from constipation will find that their stools are normally, small, dry, hard and difficult to pass through your body. It is not uncommon for people to go days or weeks without a bowel movement when they are suffering from constipation. A lot of people will feel bloated with this condition and they may be in pain, especially when trying to go to the toilet. The sensation of having a full bowel can be an unpleasant one and many people who suffer from constipation may find that they end up suffering from haemorrhoids or piles. It should be noted that constipation is actually a symptom as opposed to being a disease and it is a symptom that most people will experience at some point in their life.
There are a number of causes of constipation with stress, a lack of exercise and a poor diet often the main causes of this condition. It may be that constipation is an underlying symptom of a more serious condition so you should have it checked out as quickly as you can.
We offer support for constipation sufferers
At Dermacia Pharmacy, we are happy to provide guidance and these are some of the tips we recommend to reduce the likelihood of suffering from constipation.
You should look to eat a lot of food that is high in fibre, which can include vegetables and fresh fruit. You should look to minimise the amount of junk food and low fibre food you consume. You should also look to drink a great deal of water and other liquids. This is because a great deal of liquid will help in keeping your stool soft, making it easier to pass through your body. If you don’t drink enough liquids, your stools will be dry. You should also look to minimise caffeine and alcohol intake as these have a dehydrating effect on your digestive system.
It may be that you suffer from a number of food intolerances and this is what causes your constipation. This is something that you can be tested for easily and at Dermacia Pharmacy, we can test you for an extensive range of food intolerances and food allergies.
You should also look to exercise on a daily basis with a 20 to 30 minute walk making a massive difference with respect to your energy and fitness levels.
Undergoing colonic irrigation or hydrotherapy can help to make you feel more comfortable as this gently washes out waste that has been accumulated. This process will also help to stimulate your colon into normal functioning behaviour. At Dermacia Pharmacy, we are more than happy to provide you with guidance and assistance.
