Lack of strength after bowel movement
“I produce bowel movement every few days. Every bowel movement is strenuous and I sweat a lot, and then my body becomes weak or I feel dizzy afterwards. Is it a sign of illness?”
CheckCheckCin: This is qi deficiency type constipation. The theory of traditional Chinese medicine believes that if the spleen qi is insufficient, the large intestine transportation function will be affected. The stool is likely to stay in the large intestine and cause constipation. People with qi deficiency struggle to defecate, are prone to sweating and shortness of breath, and feel tired after bowel movements. Drinking hairy fig root tea with codonopsis root can relieve symptoms and help to promote qi and relieve constipation. You can appropriately consume ingredients that can replenish qi according to your body condition, such as ginseng, codonopsis root, Chinese yam, carrot, lingzhi.
