Everyday Reality: Everybody Poops and That’s Okay
We all go about our daily routines differently, but there is one common occurrence that everyone can relate to and that’s going #2! While many Canadians consider pooping a mundane chore required when nature calls, maintaining regular bowel movements is just as important to your overall health as brushing your teeth and taking your vitamins. Half of Canadians agree that constipation affects their ability to live their best life with 72% noting that it makes them uneasy and uncomfortable. This is why monitoring the frequency of your #2s is important to ensure you are in tune with your gut.
You’re Not Alone: Signs and Symptoms of Constipation
Women are nearly two times as likely as men to experience constipation which is why it’s even more important for women to monitor their bowel movement frequency. Recognizing the signs early is your first defense against unease and discomfort and seeking proper treatment solutions will keep you feeling your best.
Constipation can impact everyone differently and is caused by factors including age, physical activity, water intake, diet, and even stress and anxiety. If you are feeling bloated or experiencing strained, infrequent bowel movements, abdominal pain, or gas there is a good chance that you are backed-up (literally!) and need help moving nature along. Regularity varies from person to person and can range from passing three stools per day to three stools per week. Pay close attention to when your body is feeling its best to find out what your regular is! Once you’ve established a connection with your gut, the easier it will be to recognize the signs and symptoms of constipation and achieve effective relief.
