Constipation

Most of us will experience constipation at some time in our lives, but chronic constipation is no laughing matter as it can contribute to colon disease and other health problems. A healthy individual will have between one and three painless bowel movements daily but if you are constipated your bowel movements may be less frequent than this and may also be difficult to pass. You may also experience small, hard stools and / or have a feeling of incomplete evacuation.

Constipation can have many causes ranging from inadequate dietary fibre, food intolerances, hormone imbalances, gut infections, lack of exercise, structural problems and low levels of digestive secretions. We will work with you to help identify and address the relevant contributory factors to help provide you with ongoing relief from constipation without the need for habit-forming laxatives.
