healthy bellyConstipation is a condition of the digestive system. The sufferer has hard feces that are difficult to expel. It is well known that people whose diets include a good quantity of fiber are significantly less likely to suffer from constipation. Foods low in fiber are high fat foods, such as cheese, meats, and eggs. If you consume them, make sure you are also eating enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains - which are rich in fiber.
Quite simply, fiber promotes bowel movements and prevents constipation. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN  however, that fiber is not that useful in dealing with constipation, it is better at preventing it.
The sufferer is too physically inactive. Some medications , Milk sufferers, Pregnancy, Aging, Change in routine like when on holidays, No going to the loo when the urgency is there and the over use of laxatives may all cause constipation.
It is important to try to find out what has caused the constipation is in the first place - there could be an underlying illness or condition. Some people with recurring constipation use a daily diary where they record their bowel movements, stool characteristics, and other factors which may help both the doctor and patient devise the best treatment.
 Exercise will help treat and even prevent constipation, as physical activity stimulates the intestines and helps you maintain normal, regular bowel movements. In some cases, constipation can be resolved with a little more focus on what you're eating.
Can constipation be prevented? In my opinion yes. There are many causes of occasional constipation, including stress, diet, menstrual cycle, and traveling. Constipation itself is not a disease, but rather a symptom that may result from any of a broad range of underlying causes.
How can you beat constipation?
Depending on how constipated you are, this can be a matter of a couple of apricots and prunes or a real change in your lifestyle. Try some or all of what is suggested below. Please remember that constipated people often suffer from many conditions, including:

Bad breath
Bad skin
Lack of energy
Drink at least 3 litres of water every day – more if you can (not all in one go!). Introduce fibre in to your diet. This can be something like a high fibre cereal in the morning, fruits during the day, vegetables at lunch and dinner and dried fruits like apricots, prunes figs etc later in the day. Get a deep abdominal massage. If you are on any medication or tablet, discuss it with your doctor and once you start seeing improvements, come off them gradually. Reduce stress. Many people have their abdominal region as their "weak" body part so when they get stressed, it is their bowels that suffer first. Try the elimination of gluten and wheat.
Having a healthy system of bacteria is also critical to the health of your colon. Probiotics can make a difference in your immune health. Activia is not really a good example of healthy bacteria because it is in a product with too much sugar.. Speak to health shop about probiotics.
Yes, your emotions do play a significant role in whether you are regular. Anxiety and tension are associated with more serious problems in the bowel like IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s and other digestive problems. I can help you with stress relief and in letting go of old unnecessary grudges, disappointments and resentment.
Did you know your digestive system is responsible for 80% of your immune function and produces 90% of serotonin – the feel good chemical helpful to keep your mood good? You would probably agree these are important functions.
Do you struggle with colds, sinus problems, skin rashes, food sensitivities? All of this could begin in your colon. Constipation is a problem for the majority of people.
