All About Abdominal Adhesions and Obstruction

Jini Patel Thompson interviews physiotherapist Mary Cox about how adhesions and restrictions form in the gut and why they lead to pain, dysfunction, intestinal obstruction, infertility, etc. AND what you can do about it.

Intestinal obstructions can result from a number of different factors: Strictures or scar tissue that has built up to the point where the intestine is extremely narrowed, or a spasming length of intestine, or a volvulus (twist/kink in the intestine), or a diverticulitis flare-up.

How to beat the Christmas bloat

christmas bloat
We all know Christmas is the time for indulging. The mince pies in the office, the glasses of mulled wine after work and not forgetting the main event – Christmas dinner!

The average Brit will gain five pounds (or two kilos) over the four week festive period and consume around 6,000 calories on Christmas day. And if you thought Christmas parties were sin-free, think again! Brits will guzzle an extra 43 teaspoons of sugar in one yuletide night out!

All this indulgent eating and drinking doesn’t just affect your weight gain this winter, it can cause million of Brits to suffer painful, disruptive (and a little embarrassing!) digestion problems too.

A new report by the Henry Potter Advisory Committee reveals that nearly one in five described their digestive health as temperamental and troublesome, whilst one in 10 respondents described their digestive health as poor.

Of the 2,000 men and women aged 25 to 60 surveyed, Bloating was highlighted as a significant digestive health concern – nearly nine out of 10 (87.5 per cent) of those studied said they suffered from the problem.

Top tips for looking after your digestive health this Christmas

It’s the same every year – once the festive season arrives, we abandon all our good habits and dive headlong into a month of OTT indulgence. From mince pies and marzipan to stuffing and stollen, we’re faced with an abundance of food that’s just a bit too hard to resist – meaning that second helpings become an all too common occurrence.

Unfortunately, our bodies aren’t prepared for this sudden binge. Unable to cope with so many rich foods, our digestive systems often start to play up – leaving us feeling uncomfortable at the least opportune moment.

Worried about experiencing digestive problems this Christmas? No one’s saying you have to stick to salad – but nutritionist Amanda Hamilton and the team at Imodium do have some have some helpful advice. Remember these tips and you won’t be left regretting any dietary decisions this festive season...
Canapé catastrophes

Christmas is supposed to be a season of bright colours – so why is most party food boring old beige? Canapés, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cake... it’s all made of beige coloured wheat which is high in gluten and low in nutrients. For some people, repeatedly eating wheat-based products can lead to bloating and an irritated bowel. Try to add some colour to the menu with crudités and dips, fresh fruit and juices to aid your body’s effective digestion.
Under pressure

Love them or hate them, having your in-laws over and your other half’s mother watching your every move in the kitchen would make anyone anxious! Apprehension or stress can imbalance your digestive system, leaving you feeling below par. Try to take measures to ease your stress, incorporating relaxation therapies such as yoga, meditation or music into your festive routine – or just step outside with a calming cup of peppermint tea for a moment to get away from it all.
