POO (Part 2): Constipation


Remember (from my last post) .... if you are not passing AT LEAST ONE soft, well-formed stool per day .... then you may be suffering from constipation and interfering with the elimination of toxins from your body.


CAUSES?

Constipation is not a simple symptom, rather it is a complex multifaceted syndrome involving many different causes. These may include:


* Insufficient dietary FIBRE * Inadequate FLUID intake * Decreased PHYSICAL ACTIVITY * STRESS * MEDICATION side effects * HYPOTHYROIDISM * Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)


WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR:

If you have had any unexplained change in your bowel movements, colour or consistency of your stool, or if there is blood in your stool, then please see your doctor for assessment.


HOW CAN A NATUROPATH HELP?

Naturopaths LOVE to talk about POO as it tells us so many things about your health. I would work with you to help identify what may be causing your constipation and develop a personalised health plan to address it.
