Thanks to Paul Chek for the picture and resources for this post. You can check out his book here. I highly recommend it.
Earlier this week, we talked about the frequency and importance of pooping. Today we talk about what your poop looks (and smells) like.
Healthy poop should be robust, float and have an earthy smell. Refer to the picture above. A healthy poop is the cop.
A couple of the unhealthy poops pictured above are:
Diarrhea: This is common in a state dehydration or as a reaction to foods you may be sensitive to like dairy or Gluten. An easy way to fix this is to rehydrate or remove the things that cause your intestine to be sensitive. Diarrhea is also a sign that your body is trying to detoxify.
Pellets: this could also indicate dehydration as well as disfunction of the colon and peristalsis.
Sinker: These often stink as well and indicate a diet high in processed foods or some type of medicinal presence.
The Bodybuilder: This guy usually takes some straining and is common in the presence of too much protein or processed or dehydrated foods.
Depending on the type of poops you are having will indicate how you treat yourself. Only you know what you are experiencing and from this and a simple peek at Wikipedia can give you some insight to whether you should be alarmed. Of course I am here as well, but not everyone is comfortable talking about this, so it’s up to you.
