Stool Incontinence: Homeopathy Offers An Effective Treatment

The involuntary passage of stool due to lack of control over the bowel movements is known as stool incontinence or fecal incontinence. A person may have a sudden urge to pass stool, that if not attended urgently, can lead to a leakage of stool. This condition is known as urge incontinence. In some cases, a person unknowingly passes stool, a condition that is known as passive incontinence. The severity of this condition varies from minor leakage of stool to entire loss of bowel control. Stool incontinence can be treated effectively with homeopathic medicines. Aloe, Podophyllum, Causticum, and Hyoscyamus are the top natural remedies for stool incontinence.
