Constipation is defined as having a well formedĀ  bowel movement fewer than three times per week. With constipation stools are usually hard, dry, small in size, and difficult to eliminate. Some people who are constipated find it painful to have a bowel movement and often experience straining, bloating, and the sensation of a full bowel.

Some people think they are constipated if they do not have a bowel movement every day. However, normal stool elimination may be three times a day or three times a week, depending on the person.

A normal bowel movements color should be close to the color of a paper bag.

Increase the Insoluble fiber, which include whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Try wheat bran, brown rice, or whole grain bread which.passes through the body almost unchanged, giving the stools bulk and a soft texture, making them easier to pass.

Increase soluble fiber which dissolve in water and forms a gel-like substance in the intestines. Prunes and figs can be added to breakfast or eaten as a snack.

To  help the fiber work, drink  at least 64 oz. of water a day .  Be sure to have an 8 oz. glassful with any whole grain food.  Watch your consumption of alcoholic beverages and caffeinated beverages such as coffee and cola drinks, which are dehydrating.

Some useful herbal laxatives such as cascara sagrada, rhubarb, aloe, senna and buckthorn can help jump start your bowel movements.  They are not recommended for long-term use as they can become habit forming.
Begin a daily  exercise routine. Take a  half hour, brisk walk, ride a bike,  jog, or swim. Do what suits your body to get moving.

Pain and hypertension medications, antacids, diuretics, or anti depressants can also cause constipation.
