    EPISODE 8: Natural ways to make yourself poop

    EPISODE 8: Natural ways to make yourself poop

    Your exercise and eating habits, age, gender, and health status all affect the number of bowel movements you experience in a given day. While there is no set number of bowel movements a person should have, it’s abnormal and possibly dangerous to go three or fewer times per week.

    Often, constipation causes bowel movements that are not only infrequent, but also hard and difficult to pass. This leads to excessive straining and time spent on the toilet.

    The causes of constipation vary. The condition may simply be due to such as things as dehydration or eating foods with too little fiber. In other, more serious cases, constipation can be the result of stress, hormonal changes, spinal injuries, muscle problems, cancers, and other structural problems affecting the digestive tract.



    We hope you enjoys some simple ways to encourage your body to let things go...

    EPISODE 7: What do you ask? Who do you see?

    This episode delves a little bit into who we recommend to see if you have any gastrointestinal issues as well as some of the questions you should be asking/things you should be doing at the start of your bowel journey.

    There are a lot of options out there but we always recommend to book a consult with a Gastroenterologist as your first point of call. 

    Starting on your bowel issue journey can be very daunting and we hope in some way to ease your anxiety/concerns with this podcast so please send us any questions you have or any topics you would like us to discuss on future episodes.

    EPISODE 6: NATIONAL BOWEL CANCER SCREENING KIT

    Tragically, bowel cancer claims the lives of around 100 Australians every week. If you or one of your loved ones is aged 50 or over, you're at higher risk of bowel cancer.

    The good news is that, if found early, 90% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated. This is why screening is so important.

    If you're aged between 50 and 74, you will receive a free home testing kit from the Government. Do the test – it could save your life.

    EPISODE 4: The FODMAP Diet

    EPISODE 4: The FODMAP Diet

    The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from "Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols". They are short chain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine.



    Doing a FODMAP diet is a good way to find out what triggers IBS symptoms and this episode takes us a bit more into Tamsin's Bowel journey with the FODMAP diet.
