Opiod induced constipation is a wide spread problem. Studies published by the National Institute of Health state that the use of opioids for chronic pain can lead to increased quality of life, but can cause chronic constipation.
The usual therapy is irritant laxatives, stool softeners and many times discontinuation of the opioid medication. This then limits the patients quality of life.
There are many healthy, natural, supportive therapies that can help with opioid induced constipation and these are also used for chronic or occasional constipation.
Start with a good, healthy diet, elimination of white flour, processed and fast foods, increase water to stay hydrated, gentle exercise and a good night’s sleep.
Add in a well formulated probiotic. Half the bulk in a healthy stool is produced by the healthy bacteria.
These products are safe, non habit forming and effective for occasional constipation and chronic constipation.
