intestinal fluid, potassium, and sodium losses increase constipation
The intestine gets used to the laxatives (intestinal sluggishness), which increases the constipation

Laxatives should be slowly withdrawn and the
Fiber intake should be increased slowly in parallel
Why is nutritional therapy important?
Nutritional therapy supports you in shaping your bowel movements in the long term by choosing an appropriate food (fiber therapy) so that you neither have to be afraid of defecation nor do you need laxatives for it. You will also learn how you can stimulate defecation (defecation) with natural foods.
Nutritional therapy supports you in reducing your symptoms overall and thereby positively influencing your health. An energy-adjusted wholesome diet under the supervision of a certified nutritionist can lead to your long-term success. The diet is adapted to your current weight and a jointly defined goal for weight gain / or loss.
The aim is to supply all of the fatty acids, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are important to you, energy and protein in the measure that your body is optimally supplied with. For this purpose, foods that promote inflammation are specifically avoided and plenty of anti-inflammatory foods are consumed.
Fiber therapy with 50 - 60g fiber / day, natural foods with a high fiber content are necessary for this in order to achieve the appropriate amounts (enrichment with foods rich in fiber)
* Exercise (recommendation:> 3 x / week 30 min.)
* Gymnastic exercises to strengthen the abdominal press
* Reduction of exaggerated expectations of defecation frequency (stress reduction)
* In the case of laxative abuse: Gradual reduction of laxatives & gradual Introduction of fiber therapy
