What is constipation? Constipation is about both the quantity (or frequency) of poos that you do, and the quality of poos that you do. You could have soft, bulky poo but only go every 5 days. Or you could poo every day, but your poos are hard and small and difficult to do. If you are interested in what the ideal poo is, have a look at The Bristol Stool Chart – we should all be aiming for type 4, and pooing every day. To relieve constipation, we will need to consider not only what you eat and drink, but your lifestyle too, including factors like exercise, stress and anxiety. For many people, constipation has become a way of life, but it needn’t be. It is possible to get relief from constipation. To find out more, send me an email or give me a call today.
