Constipation

Constipation

This is the most common problem which we treat. We have achieved amazing results with colon hydrotherapy at our clinic in Melbourne.

It is normal to have a bowel movement 2 – 4 times per day yet only 2.5 % of the world’s population do.

Likely triggers

  • Stress – ribbon or rabbit stools
  • Lack of dietary fibre
  • Hereditary
  • Not drinking enough water
  • Ideopathic Chronic Constipation/ no visible known cause
  • Piles (haemorrhoids) can be due to straining
  • Laxatives- especially if used too frequently
  • Lazy colon or lack of tone
  • Stress/ nervous tension
  • Poor liver or gall bladder function or no gall bladder
  • Lack of exercise
  • Prostate problems
  • Drugs and medication can act like concrete
