Biocombination Number 4 Constipation

Dr. Rajiv Sood

Biocombination number 4 has been prepared with 4 biochemic salts that aid in relieving constipation. Regular intake of this biocombinaiton helps control the problem of constipation, controls the increased dependency on laxatives of patients suffering from chronic constipation.

Bowel regularity is very important for health and constipation can increase the risk of certain bowel conditions. In the long term, small pouches can develop in the wall of the lower part of the colon, known as diverticuli. These can sometimes become inflamed or infected with waste material. More serious complications such as bleeding and bowel perforation may also develop. In the shorter term, if waste products are not eliminated efficiently from the body harmful waste products can build up leading to problems such as fatigue, bad breath and poor skin health.

Constipation is a problem in passing stool, that is defaecation. Though bowel habits vary from person to person, ideally one should have easy bowel movements in early morning and the stool should float on the water.

Constipation includes the difficulty in expulsion, infrequent bowel emptying and hard and dry stools. Constipation may lead to other symptoms such as abdominal discomfort, flatulence, headache, bad breath, and loss of appetite and indigestion.

A certain amount of water is required to carry on the process of eliminating the waste from the body through the alimentary canal and there must be a proper balance of sodium chloride in order to properly distribute the water in the organism. According to the biochemic theory, constipation may be caused by a deficiency of sodium sulphate or sodium phosphate in the fluids causing a lack of bile or a deficiency of sodium chloride. Constipation is also caused due to a deficiency of Calcium fluoride that causes a relaxation of the villi of the small intestines.

The main cause of developing this deficiency is dietary. Inadequate roughage and fluid intake in the diet results in faeces lacking enough bulk to stimulate the bowel to move them along. Drinking too much cold drinks and the habit of smoking also contribute to constipation.

Other factors such as late nights, insomnia, stress, nervousness, worry, grief and fear are also responsible.

Increase your Fibre Intake
One essential ingredient for healthy bowel function is fibre. This indigestible material adds bulk to the food residues, thereby promoting the passage of waste materials through the intestines. High fibre breakfast cereals based on wheat bran are often advised for people suffering from constipation. For optimum bowel function you should eat at least five servings of fruits or vegetables a day.

Use Natural Bulking Agents
An effective and convenient way to increase fibre intake is to add a natural bulking agent to your diet. Take 1-2 teaspoons of either psyllium husk or linseeds with water each day or sprinkled over soups or salads.

Drink More Water
Apart from fibre, the other essential ingredient for bowel regularity is fluid. The best form of fluids is water. Drink one and a half-two litres of water each day.
