Bowel obstruction is also known as an intestinal obstruction or Paralytic ileus and also Intestinal volvulus and even Pseudo obstruction intestinal and in some circles it can be called Colonic ileus. The obstruction in the bowel is an involuntary affair and causes the usual movement of foods in the digestive tract to be stalled. The obstruction can happen in any place of the digestive track. Unfortunately it is classed as a medical emergency and you will need intervention.

The bowel sometimes does not work correctly and causes an obstruction which we call ileus. In some cases of obstruction it is called pseudo-obstruction-intestine which affects neonates and pediatric patients the cause of the obstruction in this case is when the bowel wall obliterates and can lead to other conditions such as jaundice and electrolyte imbalances. This type of obstruction in the bowel can be a threat to your life so look out for signs like abdominal distention, abdominal pain and absence of bowel sounds. The best way to treat an obstruction is with fiber. Fiber are non digestible and go along the digestive track taking on water and will inevitably relieve defecation. It is non-starch polysaccharides like cellulose and some other parts such as waxes, chitins, pectins, dextrins, inulin, lignin and beta-glucans.

Prunes are a type of plum and are quite wrinkly in their shape, they have been used for cooking and are well known for their relief effects of constipation. They give off potassium and fiber. Plums have the same effect as prunes because they both have dietary fibers sorbitol and isatin so they can both be used as juice to assist in controlling the function of the digestive system.
