Were you looking for information about Constipation Treatment? Constapation remedy is a common misspelling and variation of constipation treatment.
 
In mild cases, treatment for constipation may only require dietary and lifestyle changes. In more severe cases, the doctor may recommend laxatives or enemas for short-term treatment. Other options, such as biofeedback or surgery, may be necessary for chronic or extreme types of constipation.
 
For people prone to the condition, limiting foods that have little or no fiber (such as ice cream, cheese, meat, and processed foods) may help prevent it.
 
One type of surgery that may be used to treat constipation is the surgical removal of the colon. This surgery can sometimes be an option for people who have severe symptoms caused by colonic inertia. However, the benefits must be weighed against possible complications, such diarrhea and stomach pain.
