Constipation can affect all ages and is very common. Most people (especially pregnant woman and elderly people) will have experienced this at some point in their life. Constipation is when a person struggles to completely empty their bowels, or are not passing a motion regularly.

There can be many reasons why this symptom occurs, and some reasons are: Dehydration, not eating enough fibre via fruit and vegetables, not listening to the body’s natural urges to go to the toilet, or medication side effects, to name a few. Making some simple lifestyle changes can help, such as moving the body and its energy more through yoga, changing your diet to a more healthier one, or releasing unhealthy habits and patterns from your lifestyle. Here I offer a few starting points.


What is the symptom trying to tell you?

Constipation is a symptom. You may think this is just a bodily motion, which it partly is, however it is also due to energetic blockages (emotions, mental, spiritual) which also need to be addressed, otherwise this symptom will keep reoccurring. As this is in the lower chakra/body area, it suggests that you have issues regarding the family, security or sexual areas in your life. It could be that you are holding back and feeling stuck in a past conditioning habit or thought that is no longer helping you, or you are struggling to completely let go of a situation, or even struggling to accept the way things are in this present moment. Meditation will guide you to your answer and you can work on releasing this stuck though/emotion/habit etc. Sometimes by acknowledging that it is there will help. Learning to go with the flow of life and practicing some everyday mindfulness will certainly help you. Also, starting a physical yoga practice with get all of your energy moving, even if you just do a few sun salutations each day.
