Is constipation a bad condition to have? It just depends on how severe it is. The definition of constipation is, not having a bowel movement every day. There is disagreement in the medical industry on when you have constipation. You have to use your common sense and not depend on doctors to tell what is right. When fecal matter stays in your colon for more than one day, then you have something wrong with your colon.
Let really take a look at this constipation problem. What happens to your stools when you have a bowel movement? Do you flush it down the toilet right away or do you keep it around for a couple of days? What happens to the stools when you keep them around for a few days?
When stools lie on the ground they are considered toxic and attract disease. This is true of all feces from every animal. Do you think that just because your stools stay in your body that they are safe for you, if they don’t come out when they should? The longer your stools stay in your body the more damage they do to your health. Stools are toxic matter and attract disease.
Bad bacteria love when you don’t have a bowel movement for days. They thrive and become stronger. They decompose the fecal matter, create gas, and release secretions that affect the function of the colon. The colon becomes even more stubborn and refuses to release the fecal matter go out of your body.
As gas pressure builds up in your colon, fecal matter can be force back into the small intestine, if you have a weak ileocecal valve. Or the fecal matter can be forced into the appendix where it will be difficult to pull out. These toxic gases can also pass through your colon walls and end up in your body tissues where they degrade and weaken them.
Constipation is not always thought as a problem, unless you are not releasing your stools for three to five days. Some people can go for seven day and even 30 days. Your body has a set time for processing your food from your mouth to the time the residue comes out. This time various for people and can be 18 to 27 hours.
