Homeopathic Remedies for Constipation purchase at health food store, co op, or local pharmacies may carry homeopathics.
Constipation is a problem for many people in today’s busy world. There are nearly as many causes of constipation as there are people suffering from it. Although homeopathy offers several gentle alternatives to harsh laxatives, dietary and lifestyle changes may also be needed.
Nux vomica 6c: This remedy is well known in homeopathic circles for helping in cases of constipation that develop in individuals who work too hard, exercise too little, and drink and eat too much. People benefiting from this remedy often have the urge to defecate, but are unsuccessful, passing only a small quantity, although this does provide some relief. Nux vomica is also helpful for people who are dependent on laxatives and have headaches that accompany the constipation. Nux vomica 6c can be taken three times daily for up to ten days.
Sepia 30c: This remedy is useful for women who develop constipation just before or just after menstruation. It is also known for helping pregnant women with difficult bowel movements. This remedy is indicated if there is a heavy sensation in the rectum that remains even after a bowel movement, stools are hard and difficult to pass (although they may be small), exercise brings relief to the condition, and cold hands and feet are present. Sepia 30c can be taken in the amount of three doses in a twenty-four-hour period, once a month.
Sulphur 6c: Afflicted people may alternate between constipation and diarrhea. They have dry, hard stools at intervals of a few days or more and an inflamed rectum with burning pain; no relief is experienced from passing the stool. Sulphur may be useful in pregnancy. Sulphur 6c can be taken three times daily for up to ten days; its use should be reduced when improvement is noted.
