Healing Constipation


Feeling happy when constipated is difficult

According to Ayurveda, constipation is a very serious condition that can cause many physical and mental problems. Some call it the mother of all diseases. In any case of chronic constipation, one is advised to fundamentally deal with it, so that it really stays away and is not reduced to some bearable condition. As it relates to food, lifestyle and movement, to truly get rid of constipation means to make some profound changes to your life and stick to them.

In case the constipation problem is including Hemorrhoids or Piles, it becomes many times more serious. Use the treatment for hemorrhoids alongside the treatments of constipation below, otherwise no progress may be gained at all.

Lower back pains & a bloated feeling are most often also caused by constipation, even if people do not always realize that constipation is the underlying problem. If food does not move through our system sufficiently fast, taking longer than the healthy average of 24 hours, it starts to truly rot, which produces many gasses in the intestines. These produce the bloated feeling and are very often also the cause of the back pain, as blocked stool and gasses push against the spine.

Sometimes constipation and diarrhea may alternate, the latter being an attempt of the body to treat the former by flushing out the system. It is not advisable at this time to use medication to stop the diarrhea. Eating some yoghurt after diarrhea is very advisable, to repopulate the microorganisms in the intestines.

Except for the last part of the intestines near the anus, stool is usually not the main blocking factor, gasses are. Reducing gas production and improving gas elimination is the main task when dealing with constipation.

The main keys to treat constipation are to increase movement, to correct postures, to increase inner moisture, to reduce gas production and to calm down. How to deal with constipation is also somewhat personal, depending on many individual factors. The measures and treatments below may not have the same significance to everyone. Try them out and experience for yourself. Anyhow, none of these treatments are unhealthy.













Sometimes constipation and piles are also related to a spiritual issue and especially if these problems persist for a long time, all physical measures will be more effective if also some spiritual healing is done, whether in person or long-distance.


Practical information on the healings


Leela is the ancient vedic name for the theater of life. Life in all its forms is an illusion behind which we can find the ultimate truth of pure Being. Yet life is also a divine theater, a spiritual game played by us, the actors. Yoga allows us to hold on to the bliss of truth while playing the game. And also this yoga is a game, which we can only take seriously if we do not take ourselves and this game too seriously. That is the meaning of Leela Yoga, nothing more, nothing less. So, Leela Yoga is a vision on yoga and also a name for a simple organisation that allows me to bring this vision into practice... more about Leela Yoga & Peter Marchand

  in sweet memory
of Harish Johari


As the destination is the same for all, it is easy to make the error of assuming that the path must be just as universal.

The attachment that happens in the pursuit of happiness is the main source of unhappiness.

Don't think of going somewhere, because this somewhere will come along with you wherever you go, as you are already there.

Yoga requires unity between enjoyment and suffering, between bhoga and yoga, even between attachment and detachment.

How can anyone be "good" without a choice between good and bad?

While the mind creates the illusion of the universe through the senses, the intellect creates the illusion of understanding it.

When our day has been entirely ego-centered, then our meditation will probably have similar poor quality.

When the focus on the self is held strongly enough, the flow of kundalini energy happens on its own, naturally.

Tiptoe inside, don't make a sound, don't scare away that which cannot be found.

Enlightenment is nothing more or less than the final level of the game of life.
