Constipation: CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • A study evaluated the effectiveness of multiple Maharishi Ayur-Ved interventions among a group of 126 adults with ten chronic diseases, including constipation. Each received a nutritional program, herbal preparations, and daily lifestyle guidelines. Seventy-nine percent of participants showed improvement.

 

Caution: Consumers should be cautious in the use of teas whose labels imply that they promote weight loss, and should examine the list of ingredients carefully for laxatives. Aloe barbadensis, an herb, is a frequent ingredient and should not be taken during pregnancy or lactation and may cause intestinal cramps.
