Got A Gut Feeling Your Gut Is Out Of Whack?
Learn Gut Sense to Enjoy Good Eats, Great Health and Long Life!
Moving bowels is an instinct, not an acquired trait. You don’t need to teach newborns to move their bowels — it comes to them just as naturally as breathing or crying. Similarly, there are seniors who have never had a problem moving their bowels naturally, and are free from common colorectal disorders, such as irregularity, constipation, hemorrhoids, or diverticulosis. So, why, then, other people aren’t as lucky?
There are several, noteworthy characteristics of these natural bowel movements, that equally apply to happy babies, healthy seniors, and everyone in-between:
•Strong defecation urge. Ideally, a strong sensation to move bowels is experienced after each major meal, or at least once daily.
•Small-sized stools. The stools are small, soft, and finger-sized, sometimes barely formed. By the Bristol Stool Scale classification they correspond to type 4 to 6.
•Small volume of stools. The weight of the stools is usually no more than 100-150 grams per bowel movement.
•Unnoticeable act. The act of defecation is an effortless, quick, and complete passing of stools. It is no more noticeable than the act of urination. There is absolutely no conscious effort or straining.
If your bowel movements aren’t as described above, it means they are no longer “natural,” and you are facing an elevated risk of major and minor colorectal disorders — from the ubiquitous hemorrhoids to colon cancer, and just about anything else you can find under the Colorectal Diseases heading of any medical reference.
