Everybody Poops - What Your Poop May Be Trying to Tell You

I have to admit in the future, this is going to be the crappiest article I've ever written.

You see, as I was walking my dogs Marty and Rosie the other day, I thought that dirt played a big part in my life. I'm not afraid to admit it. I take after my dog ​​every day, I expose my cat's junk every day (OK, not every day, but it definitely feels that way), and I talk to my clients about their bowel movements. In fact, when I was in India last summer, dirt was a topic of conversation between my colleagues and me, as we compared notes on who had diarrhea and who was still healthy. I was also on "watch poop," a few weeks after I returned to America, making sure everything was OK (and thankfully, that was it!)

So, if you are a pet owner, parent, healthcare professional, or world traveler, you probably know what I mean!

But many can't talk about shit like I do. I know this because when I ask people about their poop, I often get blank looks and look uncomfortable. Therefore, I leave all the questions answered by the public but usually do not need to be asked. After all, Your poop is an important indicator of your overall health!

What is Poop?

Have you ever wondered what it really is? About 75% of your average dirt is water , although this may vary depending on the person. Water is absorbed from the stool because it passes through the colon, so the longer you take it "away", the more dry your stool will become.

The remaining 25% is made up of dead bacteria that helps us digest our food, living bacteria, proteins, digestible food waste (also known as fiber), food waste, cellular, fat, cholesterol, salts, proteins, and extracts. of the heart and intestines (like mucus).

What Makes Poop Healthy?

Your ex is a clear indicator of the health of your gastrointestinal tract. Dr. Mehmet Oz said, "At the end of the day You can effectively analyze your body by looking at what's coming out of your body . "

So what do you need to look for? Healthy people will be:

  • Gold brown , which is caused by pigments formed by bacteria in the intestines and bile from the liver. You want to make sure the color is normal as it tells you a lot about what's going on in your gastrointestinal tract (more color below).
  • Shaped into a long shape . Dr Michael Levitt, an Australian colorectal surgeon who has written a book called The Bowel Book, says that a healthy human body resembles the shape and consistency (though not the same color) of immature bananas. Dr. Oz says "You don't want to." Some experts disagree, saying they don't need to be well-formed. Patrick Donovan, ND, a naturopath in Seattle, WA said, "Wood can't be built properly, they can distribute toilet water, they can break down."
  • It's almost odorless.
  • About 1 to 2 inches in diameter and 18 inches long.
What about the other colors?

Sometimes we do not see that "golden teacher," and are faced with something else. Here is an insight into what other colors mean.

  • Black: The balance can be black if there is dry blood in it from internal bleeding in the upper respiratory tract. See your doctor if this happens.
  • Very dark chocolate: Drinking wine the night before can cause dark chocolate stains. It can also cause you to eat too much salt, or not enough vegetables.
  • Yellow: A condition that can cause yellow dung is an infection known as giardia, a dangerous infection that can spread to others. Another possible cause of yellow dirt is the condition known as Gilbert's syndrome. See your doctor if you regularly see yellow stains.
  • Green: Babies often have green poop when fed for the first time. Children may have green or blue stains from certain diseases or from eating food coloring. Adults can also have green poop if they eat large amounts of green or leafy vegetables or if they eat large amounts of food with green food coloring. Light green peppers may indicate excess sugar in the diet. Green tea can also occur with diarrhea if bile salts through the intestines remain unchanged. Again, see a doctor if you're worried!
  • White / pale: Castings can appear white or pale after drinking barium sulfate, which is often given to patients receiving X-rays of the digestive tract. White or pale stains can also be indicative of problems with bile or liver.
  • Red: Bright red in the stool may indicate active bleeding, possibly hemorrhoids. Magenta color may produce a form of eating intense food coloring, or red foods like beet.
How Much Do I Study?

Ah - big question! Experts disagree about how often someone has to be poisoned. The National Institute for Diabetes, Kidney, and Digestive Disease says three times a week is normal and healthy for some people. According to Ayurveda, the ancient Indian healing system, once a day is ideal. Other experts recommend once or twice a day, while others say one should have bowel movements within two to three hours of eating - or two to three times a day. So you can see that it really depends on who you talk to. My personal opinion is that you are more than just wanting to be normal in your failure table, and that one poop a day is ideal .

When someone drops four times a day or more and dirt has a liquid consistency, this is referred to as diarrhea. When a person loops less than two or three days a week and is stubborn, dry, and difficult to pass, this is known as constipation.

What's with Corn?

It's funny, so it's OK to laugh. But most people I know have experienced it and they ask why it is when you eat corn, the next time you eat it again! There are several reasons for this. One of them is that most of us are not meticulous chew our food. Another interesting news I found was that there was a coating on the corn consisting of indigestible cellulose. This outer layer is released from the internal kernel and, as it is unstable, passes through the intestine. It then looks like a whole kernel, even though it's just outer skin. The inside of the kernel is juicy and digested, and that is the part we manage to chew and digest.

Well, hopefully you know now more about this important topic. And that's a spoonful of poop!
