Abstract

Since our life is associated with inactivity and improper nutrition, Constipation is amongst the most common
diseases nowadays. Also conventional medicine has failed to cure constipation and relies on symptomatic treatment
with the use of laxatives or purgatives Instead of lenient. It came upon us to investigate constipation according to the
principles of treatment in Iranian Traditional Medicine (ITM), with “removing reasons”- elimination of the major causes
of illness in the process of effective treatment lead to a small step in the better treatment of this disease. “Constipation”
in the traditional medicine books is under the following terms: the low stool, retention of stool, abdominal block and
dry stool. It is the start of many diseases such as different colic, gripes and generally it is known as “the mother of
diseases”. This study presents etiology of constipation.
