I am surprised to see in my clinic that there are so many women who are constipated, and in a different proportion from the number of men who are constipated. And particularly in situations away from home, such as on a trip…..
Why is this so? There is no simple answer to this complex question.
Symbolically speaking, there is a particular dimension concerning constipation. The intestines represent the separation between what is good for the body (absorption of nutrients, vitamins, minerals), and that which is no longer useful to the body (elimination of stools).
If we transpose this to life, a person who is constipated has difficulty in deciding between what is precious (nourishing), and what is useless, blocking, to be eliminated (that which is heavy, dark). The intestines are the essence of the person, thus an important question to ask oneself if one is constipated is: what is perceived to be heavy, dark in your person and difficult to get rid of?
In my Naturopathic and Homeopathic treatments, I have come to the conclusion that this important question cannot be denied in order to have profound and lasting results.
This kind of question lends itself well to Homeopathy because it takes into consideration behaviour, character, fear, anxiety……..
For this problem, it is necessary to take the time to research and to go deeper into Homeopathy or Naturopathy.
If you would like to know more about Homeopathy, I would be happy to send you and excerpt from my book « comprendre l’homéopathie (in french, sorry) »
