Healthy gut flora can prevent disease and alleviate allergies
Everyone POOPS, yet very few folks are comfortable talking about it.
Yes, we all poop! Yet, it's a conversation many find awkward to discuss. When I was in my early twenties and my doctor asked about my bowel movements, I usually answered that I'm "regular" and that I went every day, and the conversation usually ended there. That's because most conventionally trained doctors are not trained to use poop as a significant clue to a patient's health. Before modern medicine, ancient healers relied on feces to as a diagnostic tool to evaluate the patient. A healthy gastro-intestinal system is critical to vibrant health. It is one of the body's critical detoxification and nutrient absorption pathways. If you are not experiencing at least one bowel movement a day with the consistency of a 3 or 4 on the Bristol's Stool chart, your digestive system is not functioning optimally.
Eating even the most nutritious foods is not enough if you are not properly digesting and absorbing the vital nutrients. What is good food for one person may not be for another person, or at least may not be at that point in time. Do you suffer from constipation, diarrhea, bloated abdomen or all of the above? It's time to uncover the root causes of your digestive upsets.
