Are you familiar with the Bristol Stool Chart? It classifies the 7 types of Poop that identify potential problems that potentially affect your health. What you see in the toilet bowl is a wealth of knowledge so it’s important to pay attention.
The color, whether it floats or sinks, and even the shape and color, all are telltale signs. If you are passing small lumps, this is a sign that your body is dehydrated.

Whilst we all differ slightly, the ‘perfect’ stools are soft and easy to pass.
They should be formed properly. This means that we have digested and absorbed the nutrients from our food correctly.

It’s important to eliminate acids and toxins and you need at least one full Poop a day to avoid problems. The more you poop, the healthier you will be.
