No one likes to talk about it but we all do it… pooping.
If you eat every day (and I hope you are), then you’re supposed to have a daily bowel movement. Our body is designed to expel waste because we do not digest everything that we consume. One issue that many people struggle with is constipation, which is either infrequent or hard bowel movements.
Constipation can have several causes, and what causes it in one person may be different from another. Causes of constipation can include:
- Food intolerances
- Lack of exercise/movement
- Consuming hard-to-digest foods (red meat, fried food, high-refined carbohydrates)
- Gut bacteria
If your gut health is suffering, bad gut bacteria, also known as SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth) can slow down your bowel movements.
When constipation is chronic and left untreated, toxins, hormones, and chemicals that leave our body during a bowel movement can be left to circulate in our body. However, there are many natural remedies available to help improve your gut health and ease constipation symptoms if they do occur.
Download the FREE Happy #2 Guide to learn how you can treat and relieve constipation, AND improve your gut health long-term.
