The Constipass tincture is based on Tong Chang Pian, a blend used in traditional Chinese medicine.
A traditional Chinese mixture that helps to moisturise Da Chang and Xiao Chang (the intestines) according to Chinese medicine and supports stool displacement. From a Chinese medicine perspective, there are two types of constipation (if we simplify it considerably). Either there isn’t enough force (mainly Pi spleen) to push out the stool. The stool can be of normal consistency, but also soft or mushy. Or, insufficiently moistened intestines are often associated with heat in the intestines and the stool is then dry, stiff.
Of course, diet is also important. As Chinese doctors say, "it isn’t enough to drink water, you have to eat water." I.e. in addition to sufficient fluid intake, we also need to eat plenty of food s containing water, foods such as vegetables, fruits, cooked or steamed dishes. Fire in the body often also contributes to this problem, it dries the intestines. It is also necessary in dietetics to reduce foods that bring fire/heat to the body: hot, spicy. See the Eating section: lack of Yin and excessive fire.
