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.

How Well Do You Know Your Poop?

via Health Works My

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.

As you can see from the above chart, the way your Poop looks and even the shade of color can indicate internal issues.

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.

Types 1 and 2 on the Bristol Stool Chart above from Continence Org are indicative of constipation and types 5, 6, or 7 can indicate Diarrhoea.

It’s important to seek out medical advice if you experience severe Diarrhoea. Children, babies, and older people particularly should consult a medical professional if this occurs.

Being ‘regular’ is a way of describing normal bowel function and good bowel habits. It’s common for people to empty their bowel once a day, although it’s also normal to be more or less often.
