Pain in colitis, usually located in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen, should be considered as an organism signal about dehydration. Such pains are often accompanied by chronic constipation, the main cause of which is also the lack of water in the body.
One of the main functions of the large intestine is the extraction of "excess" water from the stool. Given the lack of water in the body, the remnants of digested food do not have enough liquid to easily reach the rectum. At the same time, the intestine manages to "squeeze" water from the feces literally to a drop, which greatly complicates the liberation of the intestine. Thus, chronic constipation is another consequence of dehydration of the body.
If, suffering from constipation, a person eats abundantly, then in the intestine there is an accumulation of waste, which further clogs it, making it difficult to advance the stool. This process is already accompanied by pain, which should be considered as a clear sign of dehydration. When the water balance in the body comes back to normal, the pain associated with constipation disappears by itself, and in order to completely restore digestion, you need to eat every evening one large fruit - pear, apple or orange, which the next day will help you safelyempty the intestine.
