Yoga for Constipation

Constipation refers to a condition when a person is unable to clear his or her bowel. It is quite common among people of all ages. A person suffering from constipation finds it difficult to pass faeces and, consequently, experiences a lot of pain and discomfort.

Constipation might often result in anal canal rupture. Diarrhea is also a common fallout of this syndrome. However, for many people, passing stool after two days is a common affair and hence cannot be termed as constipation.
