Hi, I’m Marissa and I suffer from Vacation Constipation. Whenever I travel, I notice that my little belly grows a “poopgut,” which is a term a friend coined when he first discovered this problem of mine. Although it is not by any means a life-threatening condition to some, bikini-wearing and tight jeans are a big no-no. In addition, vacation is a time for trying new foods and experiencing the culture of your journey, which can be difficult when it feels like there isn’t any room inside.

I developed this site because I have yet to find a reliable online resource dedicated toward constipation-relief while traveling. I do not believe in magic pills, potions or unsubstantiated claims. I will not attempt to sell anything, unless I have researched and arrived at conclusions that are reliable and valid. I will offer my own humble recommendations and solicit some of yours, too.
