Tip of the Day

An optimal number of bowel movements is about three times a day. Sound like a lot? Many of us couldn’t even imagine going to the bathroom that often. If you’re going less than that, you may be suffering from constipation.

Constipation can come from a number of causes including dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, imbalances in your gut, or medications. A laxative may help temporarily, but it will not address the underlying issue that is causing the constipation in the first place. Left unaddressed, the root cause of your constipation may lead to more problems down the road. Work with a functional dietitian to end chronic constipation and gain better overall health.
