Constipation - Treatment
A study conducted at the Research Institute for Gastroenterology and Liver Disease, Tehran, Iran, showed that anxiety and depression have a prevalence rate of 34.6% and 23.5%, respectively, in patients with chronic constipation. Their results showed that psychological impairment was identified in 65% patients with evacuation disorder and constipation. They concluded that patients with constipation had significantly higher levels of anxiety, depression and social dysfunction as compared to healthy subjects.
Homeopathy offers excellent treatment for patients with constipation. It has been proven to increase gastric motility in patients and hence provide relief from constipation. Homeopathy also helps to treat complications such as piles and fissures without surgical intervention in most cases. Being a holistic medicine, it also addresses psychological complications caused by constipation.
Treatment approach at Dr Batra’s ™
Step 1: First Consultation – Our homeopaths will spend 30-45 minutes with you to understand the exact cause of constipation. We will take into account your lifestyle, medical history, medications, mental and emotional health. Depending on all these factors, our homeopaths suggest customized homeopathic treatment that will help you cope with constipation.
Step 2: Medical Diagnosis – Our homeopaths will ask about your symptoms and perform a physical exam of your abdomen to look for distension, hard stool or mass. You will be asked about your lifestyle, medical history, medication, any emotional disturbances which could be causing you constipation. If needed, they may suggest you a routine blood test to rule out hormonal disorders and a stool test to check for blood in the stool.
Step 3: Personalized Treatment - Natural homeopathic medicines are suggested based on the diagnosis made and extent of the condition.
