Constipation / Diarrhea

Constipation and diarrhea are common conditions anyone can experience. Both are not serious and disappear after a few days. If they don’t, then it’s time to seek medical advice. These conditions can destroy how your body breaks down food into energy. 

Our team at Diamond Chiropractic is exceptional when it comes to cases of constipation and diarrhea.

Constipation vs. Diarrhea

Constipation occurs when a patient experiences little to no bowel movements. As a result, a patient experiences abdominal pain. If there isn’t any bowel movements in the past three days, seek medical attention right away. 

Diarrhea is the opposite. It causes patients to run to the bathroom several times in one day. A patient suffering from constipation may experience diarrhea as well. More patients experience diarrhea than constipation.

Causes & Symptoms

Because both conditions have patients running to the bathroom, it’s hard to say what causes them. Plus, it can be difficult to know if you are experiencing constipation or diarrhea. 

Besides running to the bathroom often, both conditions make you feel gassy and sick. This may be due to a food allergy or from taking certain medications. In addition, constipation and diarrhea are symptoms of a thyroid condition.

There are some differences, though. So, let’s look at how these two conditions are different.


Let’s start with constipation. The most common causes are stress and not eating healthy. Aside from these, women experience constipation during pregnancy


As for diarrhea, the most common causes are a stomach flu and feeling sick. It can occur after having constipation, too. Diarrhea can occur after you have surgery as well.

How Zone Technique Helps

When constipation or diarrhea occurs, there is an imbalance in the body. According to Zone Technique, this imbalance could be in Zone 2 , Zone 4, or Zone 3.

Zone 2: The Elimination Zone

Zone 2 works to flush out waste and toxins in the body. If it is not working properly, the body could absorb harmful bacteria and particles. Stress causes nerve miscommunication between the brain and specific organs. Nerve miscommunication leads to health issues like constipation and diarrhea. 

Zone 4: The Digestive Zone

Zone 4 is responsible for breaking down food and liquids into usable energy. When there is an imbalance in this zone, nutrients are not being absorbed properly. This leads to digestion issues. IBS, constipation and diarrhea are perfect examples. 

Zone 3: The Nervous Zone

Zone 3 is the body’s nervous system. When this zone is unbalanced, nerve communication is affected. So is a person’s sleep pattern, emotional state, and diet. Poor diet choices lead to indigestion and allergic reactions. As a result, constipation and diarrhea can occur.
