Konstantin Monastyrsky: Greetings, my name is Konstantin Monastyrsky. I'm an expert in forensic nutrition and the author of Gut Sense, how to reverse and prevent constipation and irregularity in children and adults. People often ask me this question, Mr. Monastyrsky does alcohol cause constipation? Oh boy, do I need a drink to answer that one. You see, boozing yourself up until amnesic is still a national pastime in country of origin, so this Russian American knows the hard truths and it is indeed very hard.
Here are the primary reasons why it does. First, alcohol dehydrates your body just as reliably as a sauna does. That is why your mouth feels so dry the morning after. Second, alcohol suppresses intestinal peristalsis and kills your urge to move your bowels for the same reason it turns off your good judgment. Third, alcohol causes the loss of electrolytes such as sodium and potassium that are essential to retain moisture in stools. Fourth, alcohol in excess causes profuse vomiting that precipitates all of the above condition and fifth alcohol affects your blood sugar level to such an extent so that it may cause loss of bowel function control and result in diarrhea with the same side effect as vomiting.
Also alcohol is often used to self-medicate stress and depression. Since both of these conditions are implicated in constipation, alcohol only makes it worse. Finally alcohol is behind an inflammatory bowel disease it is also instrumental in constipation and is the number one cause of non-colorectal cancer.
