Inadequate dietary intake, certain medical conditions or side effect of certain medications can interrupt this process and cause constipation and toxic build up. Dietary fibers contribute to fecal bulk and its proper transit time. If you are experiencing constipation and heaviness try natural dietary regimen first.
