Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal disease of civilization. Putrefaction and fermentation occurs in the intestine. This acidify our body, weaken our immune system and leads to serious chronic diseases (including cancer). Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The stool moves too slowly through the digestive tract, causing it to become hard and dry.
Causes of constipation are anxiety, depression, nervousness, too little fluid intake, a low-fiber diet, too much white flour products and sweets, eating too fast, the intake of iron supplements, cold feet, disturbances in liver-bile system and intestinal flora, intestinal obstruction (ileus), ignoring the urge to pass stools, lack of exercise, irritable bowel syndrome and changes in lifestyle.
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of constipation, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, stimulate the intestine, the immune system and strengthening the body's circulation and connective tissue. It cleans, de-acidifies the body, is mineralizing and leads to a balanced life energy. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the intestines, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Constipation can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Mineral deficiency and acidification weaken the intestines, the hormonal system, connective tissue and blood vessels. Also a defective metabolism favors constipation, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution. Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat constipation.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of constipation offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of constipation. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing. Just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of constipation
In the 19th century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also constipation).
Schuessler focused his search on mineral salts and trace elements, which are found in every cell of the body and called his method of healing "Biochemistry" (chemistry of life). It is based on the assumption that nearly every disease is caused because of the lack of a specific mineral salt. This leads to dysregulations inside the cells. The molecules cannot flow freely.
A mineral salt deficiency arises from the fact that the cells cannot optimally use the minerals. To improve their absorption, mineral salts therefore have to be highly diluted (potentized). Schuessler used the homeopathic potencies D3 (3x), D6 (6x) and D12 (12x) for his therapy. In general, the D6 (dilution 1:1 million) or D12 (1:1 trillion) is taken.
Acupressure for the selftreatment and prevention of constipation
Acupressure und Acupuncture come from the Far East. Because of their great success they are now becoming very popular with us. During the acupuncture treatment needles are pierced into specific points. During the acupressure treatment these points are pressed, massaged or rapped. Both treatment methods have the advantage that they do not have any side effects when used correctly.
About 400 acupuncture points are used constantly, but much more are known. They lie on the 12 main meridians and the special meridians, which must be imagined as the energy pathways of the body. As long as the energy is distributed evenly throughout the energy channels, the person is healthy. When the energy flow is disrupted, the person is sick. By treating certain points, the energy between the meridians will be balanced and the patient gets enough power to become healthy.
In this naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat and prevent constipation with Homeopathy, herbal tinctures, Schuessler salts and Acupressure. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Naturopathy works holistically and treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success, joy of life and especially your health.
Constipation - Treatment and prevention with Homeopathy
- Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal disease of civilization. Putrefaction and fermentation occurs in the intestine. This acidify our body, weaken our immune system and leads to serious chronic diseases (including cancer). Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The stool moves too slowly through the digestive tract, causing it to become hard and dry.
An old saying of Naturopathy is: gut healthy - healthy man.
Causes of constipation:
Anxiety or depression
Too little fluid intake
A low-fiber diet
Too much white flour products and sweets
Eating too fast
The intake of iron supplements
Disturbances in liver-bile system
Disturbances of the intestinal flora
Intestinal obstruction (ileus)
Dyschezie: Dyschezie is the inability to defecation, although stool is available. The cause is a lack of coordination between sphincter and pelvic floor muscles.
Ignoring the urge to pass stools
Lack of exercise
Irritable bowel syndrome
Changes in lifestyle or routine
Specific diseases, such as stroke, diabetes, thyroid disease and Parkinson's disease
Intestinal strictures: Contractions in the intestine due to scar tissue, tumors or diverticula (protuberances, which fill with feces and may ignite) can lead to blockages.
Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause.
An underactive thyroid gland
Anal fissures and hemorrhoids
Injuries to the spinal cord, which can affect the nerves that lead to and from the intestine
Hirschsprung's disease, a congenital condition that results from missing nerve cells in the colon.
Certain medications: Pain medications, sedatives, diuretics, narcotics, chemotherapy, antihistamines, cough medicine, antidepressants, anticonvulsant drugs (to treat cramps), frequent use of laxatives, medications to treat Parkinson's disease and high blood pressure
Symptoms of constipation:
Pass fewer than three stools a week
Experience hard stools
Strain excessively during bowel movements
Sense of rectal blockage
Have a feeling of incomplete evacuation after having a bowel movement
Complications of constipation:
Hemorrhoids or cracks (fissures)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
When to see a doctor:
If symptoms are severe with intense abdominal pain.
Bowel movements not occurring despite changes in diet and exercise.
Blood in your stool
Constipation that alternates with diarrhea
Thin, pencil-like stools
Unexplained weight loss
In addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment of constipation, you may make a de-acidification health cure of your body with the following recipe:
320 grams of Sodium bicarbonate (Natrium hydrogenkarbonat)
50 grams of Potassium hydrogen carbonate (Kalium hydrogencarbonat)
70 grams of Calcium citrate (Calciumcitrat)
40 grams of Calcium phosphate (Calciumphosphat)
20 grams of Magnesium citrate (Magnesiumcitrat)
Dissolve 1 teaspoon in 250 ml of lukewarm water daily at 10 and 16 clock and drink in small sips.
During the day time, in addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment of constipation, drink 3 cups of tea for the kidneys. In the evening drink one cup of tea for the liver. This will clean the blood and connective tissue and the toxins and metabolic waste products will be extracted quickly.
