Normally people poop 1 to 3 times a day. This should be soft and easy, not urgent, loose, or crampy. Constipation happens when your large intestine absorbs too much water from your poop, drying it out. This makes it hard and difficult to pass. There are many reasons a person might get constipated.

Finding House of Health has absolutely changed my life, health and wellbeing.

Sharon is so effective because she is a registered nurse as well as a naturopath which means that the treatment she provides is completely complementary. The sessions of at least an hour mean that Sharon can ask far more indepth questions and get to the root of problems rather than simply putting band aids on them. She is also incredibly knowledgable and picks up on things that many health professionals wouldn’t and as a result my health is steadily improving.

This is well complemented by the other services available at House of Health, particularly Julia Kurusheva, an NLP Master Practitioner whose sessions have been invaluable to my mental and emotional wellbeing.
