Today I'm going to be sharing with you a few bowel obstruction symptoms, and some natural remedies that could help. As you may be able to guess this health problem occurs when something blocks the small or large intestines. This blockage can be a result of a wide variety reasons including gallstones, swelling and even cancer.

Can you guess what the first sign of this ailment probably will be? Yep, its stomach pain. This pain could come in waves or be more constant.

With this discomfort a person probably will have a reduced appetite. Another sign that would normally be caused by stomach problems would be feeling nauseous or wanting to vomit. There probably will be some constipation, but surprisingly diarrhea might take place.

The reason for the dirrhea is that the intestines might be partially blocked. The human body being the wonderful, smart invention it is might be trying to eliminate the blockage, through the dirrhea. Next up a person may have a fever, as well as a foul smelling breath.

Lastly there could be blood in the stools, as well as poop that is very thin. You might be thinking that these symptoms are a bad thing right? Nobody likes smelly breath or stomach pains. It is important to know that a lot of warning signs regarding health problems alerts you to the problem, which is a good thing. Plus the body tries to eliminate the problem through the symptoms. Think of a runny nose eliminating unwanted invaders with a cold.

You may be wondering when the best time to see a doctor if you experience some of these indicators. My thoughts are that the second you think you should see a doctor, it's best to do it. If it is something serious and you wait, you could just be making things worse.

Depending on how bad the construction is over time the body will fix this problem itself. One of the best remedies is actually what you eat on a daily basis. Your diet plays a huge role with not only digestion, but your overall health and this is good to keep in mind. Another idea is with dietary supplements.

One of the best supplements that you really should look into for digestion is prebiotics. You might think this stuff is in yogurt, but that is different and is called probiotics. Prebiotics is natural, while the stuff in yogurt is not. Also, prebiotics is around ten times better than probiotics and it helps grow good bacteria in your digestive system.

Another remedy is something called enzymes that help break down food. The problem is that more people are eating processed foods and cooking them, which destroys these enzymes.

Lastly, I want to talk about something called phenolic compounds. This stuff inhibits the growth of unhealthy bacteria, and can do some wonderful things for your body.
