MILLIONS of endometriosis sufferers may soon see their agony come to an end, thanks to scientists who claim to have found a potential cure. Experts at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis say that they've found an antibiotic which can reduce the size of lesions caused by the condition. So far, they've only tested it out on mice but it's hoped that human trials will result in similar findings. They're now planning a large clinical trial to test out metronidazole in women who have endometriosis.

Not for me, though. As a herbalist, toilet habits are an everyday conversation and I often get some funny looks at some of the questions I ask in my clinic. There’s no getting around it, though, knowing the health of your bowel can be key to providing the right treatment. It also helps to avoid common complications of the digestive system that can occur as we age. Diverticular disease is a condition linked to long-term constipation. It’s something I screen for at every appointment because, although it can be preventable, as many as half of people over 60 have it. So why is such a condition so common?
