http://eepurl.com/bwkebfTo continue our conversation about the perfect poop, I want to talk about constipation. Everyone has suffered from constipation at one point or another. Things get backed up – that’s life. However, it is important to know how to “unplug” so to speak when you do experience a plumbing issue.
In my last blog entry I talked about the importance of digestive health, or more specifically – why you need the perfect poop. Read it here if you need a refresher. Ideally, you should have a bowel movement every day, if not twice a day. It should be well formed, firm, not smelly and comes out easily. Many times my clients mention they have not gone to the bathroom in days, but that is normal. It is NOT normal. It may be your normal, but it is not the way things should be.
Without a consistent elimination pattern, you will likely feel fatigue, tired and unmotivated – not to mention uncomfortable. To reclaim your energy, you have to jumpstart your digestive tract, and then make sure it is flowing smoothly. What goes in, must come out…but what if it does get stuck?
Here’s my handy dandy guide to constipation, or more of an ODE to constipation. I hope you find it both helpful and humorous! Feel free to pass it along on facebook or share with your friends. I’d love your comments!
