Australian clinician Lynda Griparic explores the effects of constipation and related gut health challenges on health and wellbeing. Lynda discusses why the repercussions of leaving constipation unattended aren’t limited to the short term.

Many patients suffer from constipation… mostly in silence. Quick fixes such as laxatives can be detrimental to a patient’s health and can mask what may be a bigger problem at hand. Avoiding the long-term consequences of not treating constipation effectively can be harmful, with chronic diseases occurring more frequently.

Lynda draws on her clinical expertise and research to share detailed insights into diagnostics and treatment options.

Learn key concepts and treatments for constipation and the related GIT and nervous systems:

  • Definition of constipation and its prevalence in Australia
  • Learn the definition and classification of constipation and the predominant signs and symptoms
  • Become confident with the common aetiology and investigations
  • Learn therapeutic applications, including nutritional, herbal, dietary and lifestyle changes
  • Case studies

The clinician’s detective work behind the daily movement

 Lynda, the self-professed ‘poo whisperer’, takes you on a deep-dive poo journey…

Lynda is a big fan of encouraging daily, satisfying bowel movements simply because constipation is a “symptom” commonly neglected by patients. It often has a serious driver that warrants thorough detective work.

Lynda shares her down-to-earth style of patient communication that makes ‘poo talk’ an essential component of clinical practice. Hear how Lynda guides her patients beyond the attitude of “she’ll be right, mate; all will come good in a few days”. And why she feels compelled to say, “don’t let a colon full of poo marinate for too long.”

Lynda also details recommended functional tests for an accurate diagnosis, the best dietary approaches to recommend, and the prescribing recommendations to consider.
