Tips for Healthy Pooping

  • Post category:Probiotics

Bowel movements may not be the most glamorous topic of conversation, but let’s face it: Healthy pooping is a crucial aspect of health and wellness. Regular bowel movements promote your digestive and gastrointestinal health while ridding your body of waste.

Unfortunately, healthy bowel movements can be elusive, especially if you struggle with a sensitive stomach. We’re here to help with our top tips for healthy pooping:

Boost Your Fiber Intake.

You’ve probably heard it before, but consuming more fiber really can improve your bowel movements. Fiber can help you maintain regular, easy-to-pass bowel movements. It also helps stool move through your intestine faster, lowering your risk of constipation. 

With that said, if you’re not currently eating enough fiber, add more to your diet gradually and proportionately increase your fluid intake. As you eat more fiber, your body needs more fluid to keep the gastrointestinal system moving. 

Go to the Restroom at a Regular Time. 

Aim to pass a bowel movement at the same time every day. This can prevent the need to hold a movement in because you want to avoid public bathrooms or just don’t have enough time to poop comfortably. Staying on a regular schedule can help you plan better, feel more comfortable throughout the day, and pass healthier bowel movements. 

Avoid Straining. 

Straining on the toilet can keep the muscles surrounding the anus to tighten, making it more difficult to release the stool. Instead, try breathing deeply by drawing air into your belly and exhaling through your mouth. This allows your muscles to relax, making it possible to poop without straining. 

Consider Colon Hydrotherapy.

When home remedies fail to improve your bowel movements, colon hydrotherapy is a natural, holistic treatment to consider. It uses purified water to fully evacuate the colon, effectively detoxing your body, alleviating constipation, and boosting your overall health.
