Constipation is a condition where the bowels move infrequently and with difficulty. Most cases arise from a poor diet, where too much refined food, such as white bread and cake, is eaten. An increased intake of fibre in the form of fruit and vegetables, bran, whole-wheat bread and brown rice will often relieve the condition. Although the following remedies may help hasten the process.
Constipation has been treated by homeopathy.
Constipation requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
