Constipation is a lack of regular evacuation of the bowls or difficulty in defecation. The resulting symptoms may include bloating, abdominal pain, abdominal hardness, and bad breath. We should evacuate at least once daily, with the optimal times energetically being from 5 AM to 7 AM. The longer the waste remains in the intestines, the dryer it gets and the more difficult to pass. Food takes about 6 to 8 hours to go from the mouth to the intestines. Strained evacuation leads to hemorrhoids. Regular enemas or colonics are not a healthy solution to the problem. It is best to set a certain time for evacuation and train the body to respond accordingly. Rubbing the belly in a clockwise direction 100 times can stimulate peristalsis, do this before getting up from bed in the morning. Breathing with the mouth open is also beneficial in stimulating a bowel movement.
