Constipation occurs when a person has difficulty emptying the large bowel. Home remedies and lifestyle changes can often help resolve it, but sometimes, it may need medical attention.
Constipation can happen for many reasons, such as when stool passes through the colon too slowly. The slower the food moves through the digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb and the harder the fetus will become.
Sometimes, constipation results from a blockage in the large intestine. In this case, a person will need urgent medical attention. At other times, it may simply be due to a lack of fibre or water.
There are many causes of constipation – lifestyle choices, medications, medical conditions, and pregnancy.
Common lifestyle causes of constipation include:
- Eating foods low in fiber.
- Not drinking enough water (dehydration).
- Not getting enough exercise.
- Changes in your regular routine, such as traveling or eating or going to bed at different times.
- Eating large amounts of milk or cheese.
- Resisting the urge to have a bowel movement.

Active Ayu Life categorizes constipation as a type of vata disorder as the vatic doshas are supposed to balance the movement and elimination of waste particles from the body. The cold, dry and hard qualities of vata doshas disturb the colon and inhibit them from proper functioning. The various conditions that heighten this dosha are unhealthy foods, cold weather, stress, hormonal irregularities, alcohol drinking, smoking, certain medications, and even dehydration tends to deteriorate the symptoms.
