💩💩Let’s talk about poop. 💩💩
It’s a shitty conversation, but it’s super important. I want to dump this information on you so that you can heal your body and detox. Being constipated is literally a buildup of waste in your body. It can back up all the way up to your ribs and press on your organs, keeping toxins trapped inside your body.
I had a conversation today, with my friend about how important our digestive system is. We were discussing how no one ever wants to talk about this daily, natural event that occurs and we often dismiss the value of a healthy gut.
- Drink more water! If you are dehydrated, so are your intestines. Take your weight and divide it in half. That is the number of ounces the average person needs to drink daily. For example, if you weigh 175 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water per day.
- Correct your bowel flora. With food intolerances, unknown allergies, overuse of antibiotics and processed foods, our gut flora gets wiped out and this can wreak havoc on your body.
- Ladies, straining to poop may cause your pelvic floor to weaken by causing damage to the muscles.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is your body begging you to change your diet. This can cause malabsorption, anxiety, and bloat. Stop feeling crappy and work on fixing your gut so that you can absorb all the nutrients your body needs.
