What is constipation? Constipation is caused mainly due insufficient dietary fiber consumption and less fluid intake. It is reason for many other diseases such as piles, fistula, acidity and colitis. It is very important to know the reason for persistent constipation and make changes to life style to avoid it.
In Ayurveda there are a lot of medicines to cure constipation. The reason why we should not take churna available in market is intestine becomes weak by its overuse and also body becomes dependent on it for bowel movement. These are some of home remedies to avoid constipation and natural methods to cure constipation.
