Ayurvedic medicine for chronic constipation : AMCT Herbals Kerala

Constipation is an illness similar to Vibandha, which is described in Ayurveda. It is a broad phrase for infrequent or difficult-to-pass bowel motions, solidified hard stools, painful defecation, bloating, stomach discomfort, or incomplete elimination. The most prevalent cause of painful feces is constipation. Obstipation (inability to evacuate feces or gas, Intestinal blockage; severe constipation.) and fecal impaction, which can proceed to bowel obstruction and be life-threatening, are examples of severe constipation. It is a relatively common gastrointestinal condition that most individuals will face at some point in their lives.


Constipation can cause the following signs and symptoms.

  1. Stools that are hard to pass
  2. Bloating or abdominal pain/discomfort
  3. Straining during stool transit
  4. Migraine
  5. A sense of unfinished evacuation


Constipation is caused by the large intestine absorbing too much water from the stool, resulting in dry, hard stools. It might also be related to insufficient intestinal wall contractions to release the stool and waste product. It arises as a result of:

  1. A bad diet (low fiber diet).
  2. Lack of physical activity.
  3. Aging, stress, and travel are all factors to consider.
  4. Ignoring the desire to go to the bathroom.
  5. Inadequate hydration
  6. Prescription medications (antacids, anti-histamines, anti-psychotic drugs, aspirin, beta-blockers, anti-hypertensive drugs, iron and calcium supplements, diuretics, calcium channel blockers, etc.)


The treatment for constipation depends on its severity. However, some common lines of treatment for this issue are as follows:

  1.       Drinking plenty of water
  2.       Consuming a high-fiber diet
  3.       Taking some laxatives as prescribed by the doctor

4.       Increasing physical activity
