A very common problem
Chronic problems with bowel movements are very common, with many people habitually taking medicines for temporary relief, and with diagnostic investigations often appearing normal. Alternating constipation-diarrhoea may be related to IBS and it is important to check out any sudden changes to bowel habit lasting more than a week or so. Proper assessment and testing is needed for certain symptoms, such as bleeding or mucous, to diagnose potentially serious conditions, including Crohn’s disease and Colitis.

Nobody should have to suffer from the misery, worry and inconvenience that chronic constipation or diarrhoea can cause. These problems can erode your confidence and stop you enjoying life, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Your symptoms can be erased and your mind put at ease with the right advice and treatment, including looking at your diet, your intestinal health, your stress levels and any other factors that may be involved. Gentle and natural treatments like herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage are effective and relaxation approaches are invaluable.
