Constipation is a term used most often to refer to the slowing of intestinal transit (less than 3 bowel movements per week), associated with a decrease in the number of stools passed, a somewhat hard consistency, and difficulty passing the stools.

Some tips to reduce constipation:

  • Keep well hydrated (1.5 to 2 liters a day, preferably water)
  • Move, walk
  • Eat fiber (green salad, fruit, vegetables, cereals, etc.)
