1. What is constipation and what are its main symptoms?

Constipation is characterized by difficulty in passing stool, often hard and dry, a bowel movement frequency of less than three times a week, and a feeling of incomplete emptying. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating and general discomfort.

2. What are the common causes of constipation?

The causes of constipation can be varied: a low-fiber diet, insufficient hydration, lack of exercise, certain medications, stress and changes in routine.

3. How does dietary fiber help relieve constipation?

Dietary fiber, found in fruits, vegetables and wholegrain cereals, increases stool volume and softness, making it easier to pass. It is advisable to include sufficient fiber in your diet to prevent and treat constipation.

4. What role does hydration play in preventing constipation?

Good hydration is crucial to preventing constipation. Water helps soften stools and facilitates intestinal transit. We recommend drinking at least 1.5 to 2 liters of water a day.

5. How does exercise influence constipation?

Regular physical activity stimulates intestinal transit and reduces the time it takes for food to pass through the large intestine, thus limiting the risk of constipation. Exercises such as walking, swimming or yoga are particularly beneficial.

6. What natural remedies can help relieve constipation?

Natural remedies include plums, aloe vera juice and specific herbal teas such as senna, which act as natural laxatives. However, their use should be occasional and controlled.

7. When should I consult a doctor about constipation?

It is important to consult a doctor if constipation is persistent, accompanied by severe pain, blood in the stools, or drastic changes in bowel habits. Medical follow-up is necessary to rule out any serious underlying condition.

8. Can constipation be prevented naturally?

Yes, by adopting a high-fiber diet, drinking enough water, engaging in regular physical activity and effectively managing stress, constipation can be effectively prevented.

9. Are probiotics effective against constipation?

Probiotics, particularly strains of bacteria beneficial to the intestine, can help improve intestinal transit and reduce constipation symptoms. They can be found in fermented foods or supplements.

10. What other measures can be taken on a daily basis to avoid constipation?

In addition to the tips mentioned, it's essential to establish a regular bowel routine, avoid foods that aggravate constipation (such as very fatty or very sweet foods) and take the time to meet the body's natural needs without rushing.

11. Is it safe to use laxatives over a long period to treat constipation?

Prolonged use of laxatives, particularly stimulant-type ones, can lead to dependency and reduce the bowel's natural ability to function effectively. It is advisable to use them occasionally and under medical supervision. For long-term treatment, opt for natural methods and lifestyle changes.

12. What impact can stress have on constipation, and how can it be managed?

Stress can have a significant impact on the digestive system, including promoting constipation. Managing stress through relaxation techniques, such as meditation or yoga, can help improve bowel function. It is also advisable to adopt a balanced daily routine that includes moments of relaxation.

13. Can children also suffer from constipation, and how can it be treated?

Yes, constipation is common in children and can be caused by eating habits, stress or changes in routine. To treat it, encourage a high-fiber diet, good hydration and regular physical activity. If the problem persists, consult a paediatrician for appropriate advice.

14. Are there any differences between occasional and chronic constipation?

Occasional constipation is generally due to temporary changes in diet or daily routine. Chronic constipation, on the other hand, may indicate a more serious underlying problem and often requires a more complex therapeutic approach, including lifestyle changes, natural remedies and, in some cases, medical intervention.

15. How can dietary changes be integrated into a busy lifestyle to prevent constipation?

Incorporating fiber-rich foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and legumes, can be done even in a busy schedule. Opt for healthy snacks, prepare balanced meals in advance and choose fiber-rich options when eating out. Likewise, keeping a bottle of water handy can help keep you well hydrated throughout the day.
