Constipation is usually signalled by a feeling of fullness and sometimes bloating below the waste. It is the result of faeces becoming stuck in the intestines. We might feel as if we want to go to the loo but when we wit down we are unable to pass a stool. There are lots of causes of constipation. Avoiding going when the body tells us it is ready can lead to constipation. Dehydration is another major cause as the gut needs plenty of water to function properly. A poor diet short on fruits, vegetables and cereals which provide roughage will prevent our bowels from functioning well. Stools which are knobbly and fall into pieces as we produce them are typical of people suffering from constipation. In the worst cases the stools may need to be removed under medical supervision – by hand. If you suddenly start suffering from constipation see your doctor in case it suggests a serious illness. Otherwise keep tackling the problem by improving your diet and allowing yourself to go to the loo when your body tells you it is time – not when your busy schedule permits.

For optimal health, you should be passing 2-3 bowel movements each day! Anything less is considered constipation. If you've ever had a colon cleanse, good for you.

1. Lack of fiber in the diet. Fiber makes our stool soft.
2. Not drinking enough water.
3. Holding your stool when you really need to defecate. Holding your stool allows your rectum/large intestine to absorb more water thus making your stools dry and hard.
4. Medications.
5. Digestive disorder such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
6. Stress.
