Having A Healthy Bowel Movement
Our bowel movement is a topic we rarely feel comfortable discussing with anyone, except our doctor. As a result, many of us don’t know what’s normal, and keep our problems to ourselves.
Ideally, we should all be having 1-2 bowel movements a day. Our bowels should be cylinder-like, and not flat. They should be textured, and shouldn’t smell awful. When we have them, we aren’t straining, feeling pain, bleeding, or constipating. The first point is very important. Straining is one of the worst things you can do and can lead to unhealthy bowel movements.
Straining can cause hemorrhoids, which is when enough blood isn’t returned from the veins in our anal region. As a result, these veins swell and can break. This can cause bleeding in our stools. More than 70% of Americans have hemorrhoids, so it’s not a rare ailment.
There are two types of hemorrhoids: internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids aren’t as painful as external ones, but still a problem.
Tiny hemorrhoids, barely noticeable start to develop along the lining of the anal canal. Later on, a small part of your hemorrhoids may stick out of your anus when you have a bowel movement. As time moves on, the hemorrhoids remain in a protruding state, but can carefully be inserted back into your anus using your hand.
The point in which it becomes seriously deadly is when a huge amount of hemorrhoids protrude out of the anus permanently. When this happens, you probably need surgery.
External ones are marked by a small soft lump around the opening of your anus. External ones are extremely, extremely painful!
If you’re sitting in the toilet for prolonged periods of time, your bowels are extremely hard, or you have to strain, you are putting yourself in risk of getting hemorrhoids!
If you got hemorrhoids, here’s how you can treat it and start having healthy bowel movements.
1. Eat more ginger, and garlic. 2. Go to the bathroom as soon as you feel it. 3. Take fish oil, cod liver, Ester-C, and a zinc supplement. 4. Take Aloe Vera Juice.
If you’re having difficulties with constipation, or hard stools, here are some ways you can treat it:
1. If you normally don’t have constipation, but due to a special meal, you should do an enema. 2. Get a colonic done. 3. Drink a spoonful of olive oil once in the morning, and another at night. Olive oil causes bile to be released, which causes peristalsis, and eventually your bowels will be released easier. This is part of why olive oil is used during a liver flush, or cleanse. 4. Eat fruit laxatives. Some of the best fruit laxatives I’ve encoutered is Triphala, Fruit-Eze, Rhubarb, and Fennel Seed Tea. 5. Herbal laxatives, such as Senna, Hemaron, and Aloe Vera Gel. 6. Laxatives such as Epsom salts. 7. A Psyllium Husk shake, but follow up with probiotics. 8. Eat some Lecithin as a supplement.
After taking any fiber shakes, or laxatives, make sure to follow up with a good probiotic to ensure good bacteria is restored in your gut.
If you don’t have any bowel movement problems now, how can you ensure you never get any? Here’s what you should try to do as maintenance:
1. Early in the morning, drink a very warm cup of water. This induces a bowel movement first thing in the morning! It’s important you have one before you go out for school, work, whatever. 2. Drink good oil once after you wake up, and once before you sleep. This includes virgin olive oil, cod liver oil, and wheat germ oil. 3. Eat a diet with very high fiber. This means eating more fruits, veggies , and whole healthy grains. 4. Eat dry fruits as a snack. Dry prunes, apricots, raisins, etc. 5. Never delay going when you feel you have to have a bowel movement! 6. Drink Peppermint Tea before a meal. 7. Do not sit too long in the bathroom. Don’t read anything, just go and get out! 8. Get plenty of exercise. 9. Pungent therapy: Eat foods with spices such as garlic, finger, radish, etc. 10. Eat fermented foods with natural probiotics such as kefir, fermented sauerkraut, yogurt, etc. 11. Avoid taking any unnecessary pills, and medicine as these can mess up your bowel movements. 12. Focus while eating your meals! Don’t watch TV, or think on other things. Be Zen-like! 13. Don’t let stress bother you. Learn stress management techniques such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing… and Zen!
Our bowel movements tell us a lot about our health. If they’re good and painless, it means we’re eating healthy, and doing the right things. If we’re having badly formed bowels, constipation, experiencing straining, it means we need to adjust our diet and lifestyle, and maybe take laxatives.
For those who wish to put an end to constipation, and have healthy bowel movements daily, most people take a colon cleanser regularly. One of the best ones is called Colonix by Dr. Natura.
