Pooh, No one ever want to hear about it…
Why is that? One of the body’s most effective ways of communicating and we do not want to listen. What does healthy 💩 look like? Even for this emoji, the way it is stacked up, implies uncomfortable digestion. If this is what your pooh looks like, then you may want to switch up your intake.
We all have been conditioned to consider what is eating healthy. “Healthy” eating is what is best for you, eating for you will lead you to healthy bowel movements. Healthy pooh, some say should look like sausage links, with a drop in the bowl and a brownish tent.
I think order of importance is color, consistency, odor, and size. Color can tell you if you are in a danger zone, like if it is black, red due to blood, or white/pale 💩; diarrhea for more than three days or constipation for more than what is normal for you is something to speak with your doctor about.
Green poop may indicate that food is moving through the digestive system too quickly, a virus, or something you’re eating may not be for you. This is commonly associated with very loose stools or diarrhea. If it’s a solid log of pooh that is green, then it could be the greens, food coloring, or supplements. Short pieces of 💩 that look cut/sliced could be an indication of an inflammation within the small intestines or colitis. Honestly, I have experienced colitis and I no longer eat raw leafy greens. If I indulge in greens it is typically collard, mustards, turnips, brussels sprouts, and that is about it.
If stool is loose or diarrhea, it is moving through your body quickly and you may not be absorbing any nutrition. Most importantly you’re dehydrating. That is why detoxing is not recommended. Poop should be solid and long like a log. The longer the better as it shows signs of good digestion. Many people are under the perception that when one eats, it will automatically gets discarded, that is not the case. It can take up to two days or more, depending upon your system. Remember it has a long way to travel from beginning to end. How it looks can definitely indicate what is going on throughout your entire digestive system.
I think smelly 💩 is within its two day range. Now, smell does play a roll. If it is not smelling then maybe it has been in your system for too long. Some people can have a bowel movement every time one eats, which can be great, especially if it looks loggish (Yes, I just made that a thing 😝). Poop frequency can be from many times a day to once every three weeks. Keep in mind no matter how your system operates the sooner the body gets rid of waste as long as it is not runny/diarrhea the better it is for the body.
Constipation, another wonderful subject no one talks about. When experiencing bouts of loose stools, the body will then attempt to control it, by shutting down the process of elimination, which can lead to constipation. Poor intake can lead to constipation too. It can be so bad that the smell is coming through your mouth. I 🤞 no one is waiting that long. I don’t recommend forcing it out either. That leads to unpleasantries like hemorrhoids and tears that lead to 😥.
A few years ago I went to the Gastro doctor. He suggested that I may have Irritable Bowl Syndrome and Colitis. His recommendations were to eat fruit, vegetables, and things with fiber. I did and my symptoms had gotten worse. Being that I did not understand the digestive system at the time it was hard to pin point what was creating these pains and cramps within my system. His recommendations made me worse. I did some research myself. What I found was that many fruits and vegetables possess high fructose sugars and that our bodies do not always have the enzymes to break them down. What happens is that they ferment whilst in our digestive system. The process is painful that leads to bloating, cramping, loose stools, and constipation. I kept a journal, because it is hard to think back to two days to try to figure it out what I ate that has caused me to suffer. 🍇 were the first fruit I had eliminated. Then 🍎, 🍐, 🍉, 🥕, 🌽, 🍑, blood red 🍊, lettuce, and anything to their liking. I started having fewer and fewer episodes. Another thing they all have in common is that they are mostly offered as GMO. Now, I eat berries, kiwi, small amounts of pineapple, bananas, and citrus fruits. I stopped drinking soda. Recently, I had four ounces of Pepsi and it then gave me an episode. I am sure it is due to having both corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup as its ingredients. I would still be in agony if I had not paid any attention to my poop. Bali and any other drinking claiming sugar free that contains variations of erythritol. I had drank a propel, trusting them and not reading the labels and in two days time it had torn my stomach up. You will also see it listed as sugar alcohol.
Once again I am only sharing by experience hoping that it will make sense for another. Hope you enjoyed the read as much as I enjoyed writing it.
