Is Your Pooh Normal?

Did you ever consider looking at your own passing to get a sense for what’s going on in your body? It could be a telltale sign of your health.   If you have a child or a dog, you have to admit to looking at their pooh now and then to see how healthy they are. Too many treats, and they get the trots. Not enough water and they are straining to pass their movement.

Our bodies are ultimately a manufacturing facility… food, nutrients absorbed and waste out. What our stool (medical term for pooh) tells us about the state of our bodies can be very informative. Take the Bristol Stool Chart, shown below, for example. The seven types of stool can tell us a lot about what’s going on. Lovely you say? Well, it can speak volumes to a naturopathic doctor on what to do to help you uhm.. move on… so to speak.
