Poo (Part 3): Constipation Tips

My last couple of posts have spoken about the importance of passing AT LEAST ONE soft, well-formed stool every day and some possible reasons why this may not be occurring.

Today, I'd like to give you a few simple tips to help relieve your constipation to ensure proper elimination of toxins.


1. Drinks at least 2L of WATER every day (plus replace any fluids lost through sweating/exercise).

2. Ensure you are consuming enough FIBRE. Adults need approximately 25-30g of fibre per day, which you can get from fruit, veg, whole grains, nuts, seeds, beans, and pulses.

3. EXERCISE every day to get your bowels moving.

4. PROBIOTICS - See my future post on the Microbiome-Constipation Connection.

REMEMBER: Please see your doctor if you have any unexplained changes in your bowel movements or blood in your stools.

A qualified NATUROPATH can help to uncover the reason you are experiencing constipation and develop a personalised plan to address. Let me help you.
