Causes of Constipation: Part Two

This is Doctor Keith Snead, a practitioner of integrative medicine in Nashville. In today’s blog, we are examining another common cause of constipation: the lack of sufficient fiber.

Perhaps you run from eating green leafy vegetables and make jokes about such items being “rabbit food.” While it may seem humorous at the time, neglecting foods full of fiber can put you in a real bind (pun intended). It is vital to add some sort of fiber to your meals, whether it be through a salad, a side of vegetables with a lean steak, or even a bowl of fruit salad.

If you continue to experience constipation even after incorporating more fiber into your diet, please see me, DoctorKeith  Snead, at my office here in Nashville. Click here to read my report on digestion and to make an appointment: http://nashvillewellnesscenter.com/digestive

Causes of Constipation: Part One

Hi, I’m Doctor Keith Snead, the functional medicine doctor of choice here in Nashville. Today, I would like to present part one of a three-part series on the causes of constipation.

Constipation is one of those taboo subjects because it is so embarrassing, yet most people suffer with this condition at one time or another in their life. While each individual varies in their elimination of waste, if a person has not used the bathroom in several days, then there is a definite problem.

One of the most common causes of constipation is the lack of fluid. It is vital to drink at least eight glasses of water each day to keep your body hydrated and the food you consume smoothly moving through the digestive tract.
