Bloating with Constipation

Constipation is the lack of having a bowel movement from three days to one week. In worst-case scenarios, some individuals do not experience a bowel movement for many weeks or up to a month. It is healthy for a body to expel waste at least once per day, but poor diets, medication, inactivity, and a host of other factors all contribute to sluggish bowels. Ideally, a healthy person should experience one to two bowel movements per day, or five to seven bowel movements per week.

The removal of waste is vital to a healthy body, and constipation can be accompanied by a variety of additional, uncomfortable symptoms. These symptoms may include the inability to have a bowel movement, difficulty passing a stool, hard, dry, impacted waste that is dark in color, straining to pass a stool and having very little come out, rectal bleeding following a stool, abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, and gas.

Causes of Bloating

As waste is separated from material that can be used as fuel for the body, it is moved through the large intestine. Within the large intestine, the waste absorbs available water to make a bulkier stool. When waste is not moving properly through the bowels, it can accumulate and become impacted in the colon, creating discomfort. One of the more common symptoms is bloating.

Bloating is the swelling of the abdominal region which may be uncomfortable or painful. It may last for only a few days for some, or for long periods of time for others. Occasional bloating associated with constipation is frequently brought on by life circumstances such as travel, a change in diet, or pregnancy. Chronic bloating with constipation is not a disease, but a symptom of an underlying problem. This constipation related bloating can develop for a number of reasons and can be a source of discomfort and self-consciousness.

Abdominal bloating may happen due to a build up of gas in the colon. When waste has a slow transit time through the colon, in some cases, fermentation may occur, creating a buildup of air. This can cause the abdominal region to swell, and can result in gas, pain, and extreme discomfort. The bloating can be caused by the masses of stool within the internal cavities putting pressure on the muscle walls and on various organs, causing a bloated sensation or feeling of fullness.

Treating Bloating with Constipation

Constipation can also allow harmful bacteria and intestinal invaders to become overpopulated in the digestive tract, and this may create dysbiosis—an imbalance between beneficial bacteria and harmful organisms in the intestinal system. The body may react by bloating up and creating a sense of fullness in the abdominal region. In these cases, a repopulation of beneficial bacteria through supplementation and active culture yogurt products will benefit the intestinal tract, and may help reduce the symptoms of bloating, constipation, and gas.

Bloating with constipation is common, but should be taken seriously and discussed with a doctor if these serious side effects occur: blood in the stool, bloating that does not go away when constipation is not present, severe pain in the abdomen, fever, or vomiting. In most cases, bloating of the abdomen is a sign the bowels need emptying out and cleaning. Oxy-Powder® is an all-natural supplement that can help to reduce abdominal bloating. Oxy-Powder® works by cleaning the digestive system of fermentation and unfriendly organisms, and clearing out impacted waste. It will help restore the abdomen to its natural state, and will support regular bowel movements while working to reduce constipation symptoms like bloating.

Bloating with constipation is a symptom some people do not even recognize at first. After trying Oxy-Powder® and carrying out a thorough colon cleanse, the results can be surprising. Frequently, when people maintained a proper diet, practice a healthy lifestyle, and conduct an occasional colon cleanse, many find they lose weight. They can also lose the frequent bloating associated with constipation.
