THE symptoms of constipation consist of difficulty going to the toilet regularly due to lack of stimulus to evacuate or due to the onset of pain during defecation.
Other symptoms associated with constipation are stomach pain, a sense of heaviness, insomnia and bad breath.
Constipation can lead to a decrease in appetite and skin reactions such as eczema, acne and urticaria caused by the intoxication of our body due to the permanence of substances that should have been eliminated.
There constipation can be of two kinds: temporary or chronic. In the first case it presents with acute phenomena and is generated by third factors such as fever, drug intake, psychophysical disability, etc. In the second case it is a clinical condition that can have, when severe, incapacitating effects.
The causes of constipation they can be many and for a correct diagnosis it is always necessary to contact your doctor or even better a hospital that has a department specialized in gastroenterology. The diseases that can lead to constipation are many and of different nature and degree of severity.
Diseases that can lead to constipation can also be of a psychological nature, when for example the patient voluntarily postpones defecation.
In the rest of this article I will therefore limit myself to providing you with information about the main factors that lead to constipation related to a wrong lifestyle and I will point out the natural remedies to regulate the intestine effectively, leaving any prescription drugs to the your doctor.
There leading cause of constipation linked to lifestyle is an incorrect diet and the lack of foods in one's diet that help bowel evacuation.
Among foods recommended by dieticians and doctors to help intestinal regularity include:

- any other natural food rich in fiber
So also wholemeal pasta instead of the common one.
Very good apples, pears and plums, which are fruits rich in fiber.
Vegetables such as artichokes, fennel, celery and cabbage are very rich in fiber as well as carrots.
There second cause of constipation not related to disease is one sedentary lifestyle with absence of exercise and physical movement, with jobs that keep you at your desk for hours.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends at least 10,000 steps a day to which must be added more intense physical activity, of the "cardio" type, particularly suitable for avoiding constipation.
To avoid constipation, it is also useful to pay particular attention to hydration, drinking plenty of water, broth, milk or fruit juices (better to avoid industrial fruit juices).

- sweets and baked goods prepared with refined flour

Enema as a solution to constipation: the risks that are good to know
The enema is one of the home remedies used for decades to eliminate intestinal waste. However, it is good to know that the enema has some risks including:
- strong abdominal cramps caused by the large amount of water introduced into the intestine and by air bubbles that can form, generating a feeling of swelling.
- bacterial infections caused by a colon hydrotherapy treatment performed without having carefully sterilized the instruments used.
- electrolyte imbalance due to an excess of water absorbed during colon hydrotherapy which can result in nausea, vomiting and cramps
- plastic anemia (also called liver toxicity) which can occur if you use a “do it yourself” herbal preparation that leaves dangerous toxins in the blood.
These risks are also related to the practice of hydrotherapy if performed by an insufficiently experienced professional.
It is therefore advisable to proceed with caution if you decide to try the enema as a solution to constipation and avoid the "do it yourself".
It is definitely better to try natural remedies, such as those I have described to you in this article, while trying to follow my recommendations to improve your lifestyle.
