As you may have gathered by now I am a big fan of encouraging daily, satisfying bowel movements. I have written many blog posts on the topic and no doubt I will continue to churn out a few more, simply because constipation is a "symptom" that we commonly neglect but one which often has a serious driver that warrants some detective work. Many take the attitude of "she'll be right mate, all will come good in a few days" but I feel compelled to say, don't let a colon full of poo marinate for too long .
Why? Well let me take you on a poo journey. One that will arm you with knowledge of why we need to poo, what happens when we don't, and what we can do about it today.

There are many reasons why people constipate, and treatment depends on the individual. If you have implemented the dietary, lifestyle and mind-set suggestions I speak of in my blog posts but still struggle to get the human pipes moving, chances are you need a personalised approach and further investigation.
In that case a Naturopathic | Nutrition Consultation would be ideal for you.
Repairing bowel function is not a quick fix and takes time. Your commitment, persistence and patience is crucial but man oh man it sure is worth the effort. You will be rewarded along the way with improvements to long standing niggling symptoms such as poor skin health, bad breath, resistance to weight loss and foggy mental function. I have seen this time and time again and have experienced it first hand with my own bowel repair work.
