Adding nutritious, fibrous foods may not be enough to combat your constipation. For many people, their constipation can come and go for years without reason and leave them struggling for answers. At Dr. Dan Wool’s office, he can help you get to the root cause and treat your symptoms of constipation holistically through naturopathic treatments.
Why Choose Naturopathy for your Constipation?
At least 24% of adults have chronic constipation, where bowel movements occur less than once daily and cause difficulty passing stool. Constipation is often attributed to a lack of dietary fiber, and over-consuming processed, fast and fatty foods, including dairy products. Still, even with dietary changes, some people face constipation daily, struggling for months without knowing the underlying cause.
Constipation can also be caused by underlying illnesses or complexities in the digestive system that makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. Utilizing natural therapies to tackle the effects of constipation can help resolve the problem by identifying its cause. Many bowel disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, Celiac disease, SIBO, and other conditions, can easily contribute to constipation symptoms without one realizing it. In these cases, diet changes and medication can only address part of the problem.
In cases where the cause of your constipation is unknown or where conventional treatments have failed, Dr. Dan Wool can offer personalized care using natural therapies that effectively relieve constipation and address prolonged cases through holistic solutions.
