Chocolates are nice, sweet and the favorite of many people but it also causes constipation in some ways. Some people becomes constipated when they consume much chocolates. We are aware that it will be very difficult for lovers of chocolates to completely abstain from it, but they can reduce the amount of intake to avoid being constipated. It may sound bad for those with sweet teeth. But if chocolates is not compatible with your body, my advice is complete abstinence from it.
Laxatives can temporary ease or reduce constipation but it doesn’t permanently kill it, as a constipated patient is likely to re-suffer it in the nearest future.
There might be a time when the person may require much amounts of laxatives to move the intestines. And in some cases, the intestine may become insensitive to laxatives and this may cause the person to be unable to move the bowel, even with laxatives.
4. Undiagnosed Medical Conditions
The colon and rectum will slow down and the movement of the stool will be affected because of the constipation and this will result to anus diseases. So many health conditions can lead to this disease. The most common causes, especially among young individuals, is hypothyroidism. Those who are constipated may also be affected by thyroid stimulation of the metabolism, when it’s not in proper working condition, it results in the slowing down of the bowel and the colon movement.
Constipation can lead to other diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory hallucinations, celiac disease, autoimmune diseases, and even some specific cancer.

This intestine disease can also be caused by much stress and disturbance, increase or decrease of other hormones. As one gets aged, the hormone levels would either increase or decrease which may cause a shabby feeling. On this note, the patient should consult his/her for the required treatments.
Painkiller have done lots of damage especially to our youths, and it’s still counting. Though, it sound effective and some-times the only option for a pain relieve.

It is recommended to restrict from the use of painkillers for more than 30 days.
