Constipation Defined: Learn if You Have a Constipation Problem

Learn more about constipation symptoms and natural remedies for relieving constipation

Most people with a constipation problem either don’t recognize they have it, or they don’t want to admit it. Rarely have I ever received a "yes" answer to the question, "Are you constipated?" I've always received a more accurate assessment by asking the person how often they have bowel movements. The simple truth is, you eat two or three meals a day, so you should be having two or three bowel movements a day. Anything less than that falls under the category of constipation and needs to be corrected.
