We all do it, some more frequently than others. Its important to understand that knowing what goes in your mouth and your body is very important, but also what comes out. Your poop tells you a lot about the lifestyle you are living, the food you are eating and the health of your gut.
Your gut health is important because it houses over 80% of your immune system. If its constantly being tested by the foods you are putting in it, your body will struggle to stay healthy.
Many of you may be on some sort of schedule with your pooping and depending on the schedule that is a really good thing. As a father of a two year old an a one month old, I really understand the movement of the poopy train. It should follow meals and come out without straining. There are a couple things that may prevent a regular schedule like this:
Lifestyle: If you are constantly stressed, have a stressful job, or tend to carry lots of stress, you will likely not be very regular, or as regular as you would like.
Toxic foods: Foods that promote disease (processed foods, dairy, grains, industrial seed oils, alcohol) will delay, or accelerate the train. Neither one of these situations is a good thing. Delay too much and pooping is painful, speed it up too much and you are unable to absorb the nutrients you need.
Holding it too much: Hold it in too much and your body thinks its supposed to hold it in and the urge to poop goes away.
This is sometimes a funny subject to discuss with people but for those with issues, it’s sometimes a relief to have this conversation.
The kinds of poops you have are also very important. Stay tuned!
