10 Best Homeopathic Medicines for Constipation

Homeopathic Medicine constipationHomeopathic medicines for constipation are extremely effective in treating constipation in persons of all age groups. Acute as well as chronic cases of constipation are known to respond wonderfully well to Homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy for constipation help improves bowel motility. In fact, they even treat conditions such as piles and anal fissures arising from long term constipation. These medicines are natural and safe from adverse side effects. Nux Vomica, Bryonia Alba, Alumina, Opium, and Silicea are some well-recognized medicines in this category.

Homeopathic Medicines for Constipation

1. Nux Vomica – For Ineffectual Urging and Scanty Stool

Nux Vomica is one of the most effective medicines for constipation cases of insufficient stool with ineffectual urging. A person who needs prescribing Nux Vomica passes scanty stool, very frequently. The stool is unsatisfactory and insufficient. Even after passing stool many times a day, there is a never “got done” feeling. Abdomen pain may arise along with constipation. Nux Vomica is also a good choice of medicine for treating constipation in persons with a sedentary lifestyle. More importantly, it also effectively treats piles from constipation.

2. Bryonia Alba – For Dry, Hard, Stool in Lump Form

For constipation with hard, dry stool that passes in lump form, Bryonia Alba is considered one of the best medicines for constipation. The stool is dry, as if burnt, and is passed with much difficulty. Abdominal distension is also noted in some cases. Headache from constipation may also be effectively treated with Bryonia Alba.

3. Alumina – For Constipation with No urge to Pass Stool for Days

Alumina is another well-known name on the long list of medicines for constipation. A guiding feature for the use of Alumina is the absence of the urge to pass stool for days together. The person needing Alumina will go days without passing stool. The intestine action is extremely sluggish. The stool is passed only when there is a large accumulation of fecal matter in the intestine. Another important symptom for using Alumina is excessive straining to pass stool even when the stool is soft.  Alumina is also one of the majorly indicated medicine for constipation in children, infants, bottle-fed babies and among elderly persons.

4. Lycopodium Clavatum – For Flatulence and Bloating

Lycopodium Clavatum works wonders in cases where constipation is attended with flatulence and a bloated abdomen. Lycopodium Clavatum is also the most helpful medicine for constipation in elderly people. It is very useful in irritable bowel syndrome as well.

5. Silicea – For Constipation where Stool Recedes after being Partially Expelled

In some constipation cases, the stool is known to recede after being partially expelled. In such cases, Silicea is the most useful medicine for constipation. The stool is soft, needs straining to pass out, but recedes back into the rectum after being partially expelled. There is constriction of anus. Exhaustion attends straining efforts to pass stool. Burning, smarting pain at the anus may also arise. Constipation in women before and during menses makes another case of using Silicea.

6. Antimonium Crudum and Podophyllum Peltatum – Where Constipation and Diarrhea Alternate

Antimonium Crudum and Podophyllum Peltatum are two prominent medicines for constipation alternating with diarrhea. Antimonium Crudum is an effective medicine for constipation which treats soreness of rectum, anal itching, and mucus piles. It is extremely useful for alternating constipation and diarrhea in the elderly. Some unique features to look out for while prescribing medicine Podophyllum, apart from alternating constipation and diarrhea, are gurgling in bowels, prolapse of the rectum with stool, clay-colored stool or greenish stool and highly offensive stool.

7. Aesculus Hippocastanum and Collinsonia Canadensis – For Constipation with Piles

Aesculus Hippocastanum and Collinsonia Canadensis have shown the most remarkable recoveries in cases of constipation with piles. Aesculus Hippocastanum is a medicine for constipation advised in case of dry, hard, knotty stool with painful piles. There is a sensation of small sticks stuck in the rectum. Pain may worsen while walking. Aesculus Hippocastanum is useful for piles that are bleeding or blind type. A severe lower back ache attends piles complaints, which it also treats. The characteristic features to look out for using Collinsonia Canadensis are protruding piles with hard stool. Itching or constriction at the anus may also be noticed.  The medicine for constipation is well indicated for constipation during pregnancy.

8. Ratanhia and Nitric Acid – For Anal Fissures with Constipation

Ratanhia and Nitric Acid are well-recognized medicines for anal fissures with constipation. Ratanhia is more useful in case of anal fissure with burning pain and constriction at the anus while passing stool. The stool is passed with great effort and strain. Burning may continue for hours after stool is passed. Cold water application may relieve the burning pains. Nitric Acid is the choice where there is bleeding and pain while passing stool. The pain may be tearing, cutting or stitching in nature.

9. Natrum Mur – For Constipation when Stool is passed on Alternate Days

In cases where stool is passed on alternative days, Natrum Mur is what the doctor orders to regularise bowel movements. The attending features are constriction in the rectum, smarting, burning or tearing pain at the anus.

10. Opium and Chelidonium Majus – For Dry, Hard Stool in Ball Form

Opium and Chelidonium Majus work well in cases of constipation where the stool is hard, dry and passed in ball-like form. In addition, Opium is also the medicine for constipation where the person has been taking laxatives to pass stool for a long time.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is constipation?

Constipation is a symptom, not a disease. It essentially refers to an infrequent bowel movement or difficulty in passing stool. Infrequent bowel movement means passing less than three stools a week. Other indicative symptoms are a hard stool, insufficient stool, unsatisfactory stool or a feeling of incomplete bowel evacuation, straining at stool and in extreme cases, a need to use fingers to remove stool.

2. Why does constipation arise?

There are many factors that predispose a person to constipation. A diet low in fiber, sedentary (involving much sitting) lifestyle and decreased physical activity, for example. Decreased liquid intake, taking calcium/iron supplements, overuse of medicines such as anti-depressants, anti-convulsants, and laxatives also cause constipation. Constipation is a common complaint among women during pregnancy. Medical conditions linked with constipation are diabetes mellitus, spinal cord lesions, hypothyroidism, and irritable bowel syndrome.

3. People complain of gas, headaches when constipated. Are there any other associated symptoms?

In fact, there are several such symptoms that may attend constipation. These are gas in the abdomen, bloating or distension of abdomen, pain in the abdomen, headache and nausea. Bleeding may occur while passing stool due to fissures/piles, also a result of constipation, or from passing hard stool. Other attending features include pain, burning while passing stool. The pain and burning in the rectum may continue even after passing stool.

4. Does long-standing constipation lead to complications?

Yes, long-standing constipation may lead to piles, anal fissures, and rectal prolapse. Abdominal hernia (inguinal hernia/umbilical hernia) may also arise from long-standing constipation. Piles are swollen, dilated veins in rectal canal or anus. Anal fissure refers to a tear in the tissue lining of the anus. Rectal prolapse refers to protrusion of a part or the entire rectum from the anus. An abdominal hernia is the protrusion of an organ through the abdominal wall or cavity which normally contains it.

5. Will exercise help treat my constipation?

Physical activity of any kind has a deep impact in this condition. Exercise helps tone up intestine muscles and get rid of constipation.

6. Can a diet rich in fiber cure my constipation?

A diet rich in fiber will definitely reduce constipation to a large extent but a cure will require a proper treatment plan. Homeopathic medicines work at the root level by treating the basic cause of constipation. They set off the body’s own restorative processes making it strong enough to heal itself. The cure is permanent and enduring.

7. I have been on laxatives for long. Can Homeopathy help me give it up?

Yes, Homeopathy has the ability to treat chronic constipation at the root level and thus, do away with the need to use laxatives. Once started, homeopathy will slowly and gradually reduce your dependency on laxatives.

8. Will taking iron and calcium supplements cause constipation?

Yes, there is a good chance that you will get constipated while taking iron and calcium supplements.

9. I pass hard stool with blood, what could the cause be?

Passing hard stool with blood largely points towards two conditions –anal fissures or piles.

9. In my case, constipation is accompanied by a lot of gas and distension of the abdomen. What does that indicate?

Excessive gas and distended abdomen with constipation point toward irritable bowel syndrome. The irritable bowel syndrome is a functional bowel disorder without any pathological changes in bowels. In irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and/or diarrhea can predominate or alternate. Other symptoms include the bloated abdomen, gas, cramps in abdomen and mucus in stool.

10. I lead a healthy lifestyle with exercise, high fluid intake, and high fiber diet, yet I’m constipated. Can Homeopathy help?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is a must for steering clear of constipation. However, if you are already leading a healthy lifestyle with proper exercise and diet and yet, you are constipated, the case needs proper evaluation. Natural medicines do have a treatment for such a scenario. Homeopathy is a symptom-based science, therefore the practitioner will study the symptoms in details, identify peculiarities and unique characteristics and then, select the appropriate medicine.

Walk, eat healthy to get rid of Constipation

Increased fluid intake, a diet rich in fiber content, regulars walks or exercise can go a long way in curing constipation. Consume fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread, and whole grain cereals.

  6. Susie Grooms says:

    My husband has been severely constipated for over 4 years, taking many laxatives OTC, and prescriptions. Nothing helps. He never has the urge to have a bowel movement, but twice weekly he takes laxatives, including Sorbitol (21 teaspoons). He is not a big eater, but what he does eat fills him up instantly. He can’t hold a lot of food. He suffers fro extremely high blood pressure (200+/ 70). Drugs and trips to the ER does not work and it is not under control. The doctors don’t know what to do.

  7. I am 62 years adult. Have lots of water and exercise also. For last three to four years, I have a problem of constipation for which I have taken different alternative medicines like Isabgol husk, prunes, even triphala.
    the problem is that I do not get complete evacuation. I have the motion which is generally soft but I always have an incomplete motion feeling. Also after every meal my stomach blots. I do not pass gas, and it all accumulates in my stomach.
    I have consulted the Homeopath also who prescribed , nat phos and bryonia. it was all a temporary relief and I gave up.
    HELP ME WITH A MEDICINE WHICH WILL WORK.

    • Hi, my name is Irina. I am 47 years old, and for the past 30 years have been having issues with constipation. I was on magnesium oxide tablets for a while which worked but then something happened – there was both stressful event, use of antibiotics and GI infection – and it stopped working. This happened in 2016 – I developed pelvic floor dyssynergia in addition which basically is causing obstructive defecation on top of need to use various laxatives in order to have BM.
      I have read about homeopathic options – in the past, homeopathic therapy saved my daughter – and I decided to reach out to you.

      I want to get to the root of the issue and with help of homeopathic medicine battle it. While taking laxatives, gas and bloating happen all the time – I read about Lycopodium that can help with it. Mainly however I need a structured approach to help me cure this.
      Thanks

  17. Anadi Mishra says:

    Hi Dr. Sharma,

    I’m suffering from constipation to the extent that there are piles around the anus. I consulted with homeopathic doctor and he prescribed two medicines. They are Y-Lax (Vilax) and Nixocid. The doctor suggested to take these two medicines for easy stool pass and should not engage in constipation. Since then I’m taking these medicines on regular basis.

    Now it is almost 8 years since I’m taking these medicines. Few days back, I read an article which mention that there was a study in medical journal that is antacids or other medicines are taken on regular basis have the propensity to damage the kidneys. However, it does not mentioned homeopathy specifically. The article also mention that very few doctors are aware of the linkage of anatacids and kidney damage so they keep on prescribing these medicines.

    Since then I’m very worried that I’m also consuming homeopathy medicine for long and it could have an impact my kidney. Please give your suggestions on the following

    1. Are homeopathy medicines safe enough when taken on longer term?
    2. Should I continue to take these medicines?
    3. What are options available for replacing these medicines so that I can continue to take them for regular stool without damaging the kidney.

    With regards
    Anadi Mishra
