What is Constipation?

Constipation is a condition whereby a person has difficult or infrequent passage of faeces from their bowel. A good rule of thumb for bowel motions is 1-3 easy sausage movements daily, with no blood or mucus. Constipation can be a symptom of an underlying pathology or an acute or chronic condition in itself, lasting days, months, or years. Constipation can occur at any age, and most people have constipation sometime in life, but it is more frequent in infancy and old age.

Constipation Treatments

Constipation is a sign that your body is out of balance. This can leave you feeling tired, toxic and bloated. There are many different reasons for constipation. It’s important to address the root cause of why this is happening so that your body can return back to wellness. During your initial consultation our Naturopaths take a detailed case history, run various in-house tests and will request a comprehensive stool test for you if they think this is relevant. Once we have received all your test results back we will put you on a specific treatment plan and diet, to bring your body back to a state of wellness.
