Everything You Wanted to Know About Constipation But Were Afraid to Ask
Show Notes

In this episode of Defiant Health, let’s clear up some misconceptions about the common problem of constipation, an issue that plagues around 10-20% of people at any one time. 

While the official definition of constipation is having 3 or fewer bowel movements per week, I would say that the official definition is way off. 3 or fewer bowel movements per week is an awful standard, one that is likely to impact health in other ways, as well as being uncomfortable.  And the standard remedies for constipation have problems, real problems. So let’s cut through the nonsense and talk about how and why constipation develops and what you can do about it without resorting to absurd and harmful conventional solutions.
