Dr. Alison Chen, ND will make you laugh, open up an awkward dialogue about your poo and may even save your life.
In my household, we talk about farts and poop all the time. In other homes, poo is an uncomfortable topic. In my household, the men have a habit of calling dibs on toilets after dinner. This is a daily occurrence.
I thought it was normal. I thought it was normal to have stomach pains, gas, loose stools and feel exhausted after a meal. Although my family discussed farts and poop, it is always in a joking manner without any context for what is healthy.
How many times should you go a day? Should it float? Sink? What shape and size is normal?
I never had the answers to these questions until I went to medical school. I was embarrassed to ask and grossed out to even look at my own poop.
This article will change your life. It will make you laugh and open up the dialogue of poop with your spouse, friends, colleagues and the children in your life.
By knowing how to read your poop, you will know how to fix up your nutrition, hydration, immune system, stress levels and digestion.
For men, poo can tell you even more than you would expect. It could even save your life! Watch out for the “Pencil Poop” because it could indicate colon cancer or an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or even cancerous).
