No senior bowel movement
The deterioration of the metabolic system as a result of old age is an irreversible fact that most people face at a certain moment in time. Constipation is a frequent problem of the elderly for a variety of reasons: first of all, the digestive process is no longer working in the optimal parameters, which leads to a decrease in the frequency of the bowel movement. Lack of physical activity and even immobility are other causes for no senior bowel movement.
Coping with no senior bowel movement
Doctors often prescribe laxatives to senior patients particularly if they are following treatments with medication that is likely to dry stools. Herbal supplements, special teas and homeopathic remedies have no side effects and do not cause dependency, which makes them perfect for long term use.
No senior bowel movement and serious colon affections
In the most unfortunate of cases, a chronic constipation can be rooted in a severe deterioration of the intestine membrane either by the appearance of a lesion or by the imbalance of the bacterial colonies that contribute to the proper digestive process in the colon. Detoxifications or cleansing could prove helpful but each provides only temporary alleviation of the symptoms.
