The Risks of Long-term Constipation

While occasional constipation may not be a cause for concern, chronic constipation can lead to more severe health issues.

When waste remains in the colon for extended periods, toxins can be reabsorbed into the bloodstream, potentially leading to autointoxication.

If you experience persistent constipation lasting more than a few weeks, seeking medical evaluation is essential. Your healthcare provider can help determine the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatment options.
