‘Constipation’ can be defined as irregular, infrequent and difficult passage of stool that is generally caused by not eating enough fiber or by lack of sufficient fluid or exercise. The person can also come with complaints of straining, a sensation of incomplete evacuation and slight abdominal discomfort. Normal bowel emptying can vary from three times a day to three times a week. Failure to defecate for more than a week’s time needs to be investigated by a doctor. Regularity in the habit of evacuating bowels is very important for a person to keep himself free form chronic constipation. Whether he gets motion or not, he should attend to the call of nature. Persons who are given to sedentary activities are often prone to constipation, which in turn produces several other illnesses like fistula and piles. Physical exercise is thus a must in a person having chronic constipation.
