The Hidden Dangers of Constipation (cancer)

This is a subject very few people like to talk about especially if you are one that has it constipation this is very serious so serious it may cause cancer over a period of time.

Constipation, the most common digestive complaint in the U.S. population, can make life miserable. Not only does constipation make you feel bloated, headachy, and irritable, but relieving constipation — especially long-term or chronic constipation — is time consuming and expensive. Each year in the U.S., chronic constipation leads to around 2.5 million doctor visits — and medication costs of many hundreds of millions of dollars.

Chronic Constipation: What Is It?

The definition of chronic constipation varies among different people. For some people, chronic constipation means infrequent bowel movements for weeks at a time. To others, chronic constipation means straining or having difficulty passing stools. For instance, many describe chronic constipation as feeling like you need to have a bowel movement, but no matter how long you sit, it just won’t happen. With chronic constipation, you may have hard or formed stools, small stools, or a combination of infrequent hard, formed or small stools.
Generally, the definition of chronic constipation is a stool frequency of less than three per week that lasts several months.
Chronic Constipation: Why Are Baby Boomers at Risk?

If you’re a baby boomer born between 1946 and 1964, you may wonder if chronic constipation tends to increase with age. McIlwain tells WebMD that there are several different causes that trigger constipation in aging adults.

“As adults age, we tend to become more sedentary, eat and drink less, and take in much less fiber in our daily diet,” says McIlwain, “all of which are habits that aggravate chronic constipation.”

Then, according to McIlwain, more problems occur when you are constipated and start depending on laxatives. “Within days, this laxative habit can aggravate the cycle of chronic constipation and the need to take another laxative and then another.”

Not only do lifestyle habits put boomers at risk for chronic constipation, but McIlwain says that many over-the-counter and prescription medications commonly taken to treat arthritis, back pain, hypertension, allergies, and even depression can result in chronic constipation.

“When older adults are treated with multiple medications for health problems, chronic constipation can be the result,” says McIlwain.

“The most common medications that aggravate constipation are narcotic analgesics like codeine and Tylenol (Tylenol #3), oxycodone (Oxycontin), proposyphene and acetaminophen (Darvocet), and hydromophone (Dilaudid), which are sometimes used for severe pain of osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, disc disease, and other problems. Because these stronger pain medications are known to cause chronic constipation, many physicians go ahead and treat the constipation at the same time the pain medications are prescribed — before chronic constipation develops and becomes severe and unmanageable.”

For people of all ages, certain medications do result in chronic constipation, including some analgesics for pain, antidepressants, and medications to treat hypertension, among others. Iron supplements that many women of childbearing age take in their daily multivitamin increases the chance of chronic constipation, as can pregnancy.

What does McIlwain recommend to boomers for relieving chronic constipation? “Stay active and exercise daily,” says Mcllwain. “Also, watch your fluids and drink even when you don’t feel thirsty, as older adults sometimes lose this thirst mechanism that alerts us to drink fluids.

With the issues of our drinking water being so toxic due to chemical contamination even the bottle water you are drinking can cause chronic constipation.

Water plays a huge part in eliminating chronic constipation but not all water is the same, first thing you need to do is change the type of water you are drinking to hydrogen rich water with active hydrogen a very powerful antioxidant and it has the ability to hydrate the body at the cellular level, that is the key to eliminating chronic constipation you have to be hydrated, bottle water, tap water, city water, your filter on your house, sodas, sports drinks, those so called alkaline waters you buy at health food stores in plastic bottle none of those will hydrate you at the cellular level because that are so toxic.

Why the type of water you are drinking might be making you constipated (toxic chemicals in your drinking water)

Your colon needs to have enough water to be able to push the metabolic waste through, if you are dehydrated that process will be very difficult. People who have change the type of water they are drinking to hydrogen rich water have had great results in helping with constipation, that is the only thing they did change the type of water they were drinking.
