• Frequently Asked Questions

    How often should I have a bowel movement?

    It is important to realize that the frequency of bowel movements varies from person to person. Some people may empty their bowels several times a day while others may only have a bowel movement once every few days. Whatever is normal for you, is fine.  You should take note however, when your bowel patterns change.

    Will a cleansing enema program help me?

    There is no evidence that there is a build-up of harmful toxins in the bowel when one has an irregular bowel pattern. The most important factor in treating irritable bowel syndrome is what you do on a daily basis including eating, physical exercise and stress management.
