Best ways to achieve a healthy poop

Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) You may snicker at the concept that there is actually a way to maintain regularity and achieve a healthy poop, but it is essential not only to promoting a healthy gastrointestinal tract but also to achieving optimal health and vitality. If increased energy and happiness is what you desire, set all awkwardness aside and prioritize your goal to achieve a healthier poop.

Proper gut motility helps the body to detoxify effectively by eliminating putrefied waste, microbial cells and microbial debris. You should be clearing all the waste out of your system every 24 hours for optimal elimination. This means whatever went in should go out within a 24 hour period, max! Any longer and the food putrefies and creates a breeding ground for bad microbial growth.

Simple strategies to improve your bowel movements

Hydrate: Are you nourishing your body with a healthy intake of water daily or are you excessively consuming caffeinated or sugary beverages? Increase your daily consumption of water and decrease drinks that may be adversely affecting your health.

Avoid processed foods and alcohol: Having to wipe too many times may be a consequence of too much mucus in your colon. Eliminate or reduce manufactured and highly processed foods and alcohol from your diet.

Medication intervention: Medications affect gut health and produce common side effects such as constipation and diarrhea. Open up the conversation with your doctor and discuss if pharmaceutical drugs are causing you more harm than good.

Increase healthy gut bacteria: The microbiome and activity of bacteria in the gut changes daily. Introduce healthy bacteria into your diet by taking a daily probiotic and consuming fermented foods such as sauerkraut or fermented teas like kombucha.

Probiotics increase intestinal health and protect against inflammation, increased permeability apparent in those with leaky gut syndrome and hypersensitivity concerns in patients with IBS and psychological disturbances.

Increase fiber: Fiber can be found in a supplement source typically containing psyllium but it is best to receive the benefits from fiber from nature. Increase the amount and variety of fruits and vegetables into your diet. Individuals consuming plant-based diets have been studied to have fewer carcinogens in their microbiome than those who primarily consume meat.

Decrease reliance on laxatives: Although traditional laxatives may be the first offensive move to treat constipation, laxatives have not significantly proven beneficial at relieving pain and may aggravate the problem. Instead of relying on a laxative in pill form, try a more natural approach by drinking apple, pear or prune juice.

Don't hold it in: You may be taken aback by the necessity of having to poop in a public bathroom, but at times this is a must. Holding it in allows water and nutrients to be reabsorbed back into the body. Poop is waste and if the urge presents itself, do not hesitate to go.

Supplement magnesium into your diet: Magnesium can stimulate the movement of stool through the bowels by serving as a muscle relaxant.

Magnesium is easily depleted under chronic stress but can be replenished in our food supply. Excellent food sources of magnesium include green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds and some fruits such a bananas and apples.

Exercise: If you want to be regular you have got to get moving! Increasing physical activity has provided significant health benefits both physically and emotionally.

Exercise has been studied to decrease the frequency of pain, regulate bowel movements, combat fatigue, decrease cortisol and alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.
