Constipation is a digestive problem that can affect us from time to time. This can be due to lack of fiber in our stomach which causes our stool to harden and difficult to pass. Sometimes, this can be due to stress or even lack of proper hydration. Straining too hard just to pass stool can cause damage to our rectum and anus and can even lead to hemorrhoids when it goes on for days. The good news is that there are several homeopathic treatments that can help alleviate constipation. Here are a few treatments that you can try out if regular medications don’t work.
This homeopathic treatment is recommended to those who are suffering from obstinate constipation where there stools are often dry, hard, and quite large thus requiring intense straining just to eliminate them. When there is much straining, this can cause blood rush to the head which can make you feel lightheaded or confused. This remedy can help treat this problem easily.
This treatment is useful for those who have constipation which is accompanied by a distended stomach and flatulence. You can use this homeopathic remedy when you have irritable bowel syndrome too.
If your constipation is characterized by dry stools that are light in color and chalky consistency, calcarea carbonica is the treatment to go for. This is can also be used on infants who often sweat excessively on the head while they are asleep. Giving them this tincture can help treat these problems soon enough.
When it comes to homeopathic treatments, ratanhia as well as nitric acid are considered to be the best treatments for constipation. If you are experiencing burning sensation as well as constriction in the anus while defecating, Ratanhia is highly recommended. On the other hand, if there is bleeding as well as pain during bowel movement, you will need nitric acid to help you out.
Constipation during pregnancy can happen. This is often characterized with knotty, hardy stools that are scant in appearance and may require help to dislodge from the anus. Sometimes pain can accompany this type of constipation which can travel through the vaginal area. If this is the case, the best way to treat it is to use sepia which is an effective homeopathic treatment for this kind of constipation.
Another homeopathic treatment that you can use for both constipation and diarrhea is Antimonium Crudum. Aside from treating your digestive disorder, this treatment can also be used to treat anal itching, soreness in the rectum, as well as mucus piles just to name a few.
If your rectum is not functioning properly, you will need alumina to help you pass stools effectively. Patients who have inactive rectum often wait for waste materials to accumulate first before passing them. Unfortunately, this causes their stool to become hard as well as knotty and can be accompanied by mucus too. Alumina provides immediate relief to this problem.
