Being constipated means your bowel movements are difficult or happen less often than normal. Going longer than three or more days without one is usually too long. After three days, the stool or feces become harder and tougher to pass.The obvious culprits include a low fiber diet, repeatedly ignoring the urge to go, not drinking enough water, or a lack of exercise.
But constipation also has other, less-well-known causes, including certain medications as well as potentially serious medical conditions.
Acupuncture is considered a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE). This energy is believed to flow through pathways in human body. Acupuncture involves a number of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical locations in the skin.
