Question on alternative health care for a healthy colon:
I don't mean to be graphic but a nutritionist once told me that healthy stool often takes the form of little round balls, almost like larger versions of rabbit poo. Is the shape and form of stool different if one is a vegetarian? I have noticed this type of stool formation when I eat a lot of vegetables. How do I tell if I'm having a good b.m.?
Healing Facilitation response:
I don't mind graphic conversation but I must admit I've never in all my years heard that definition of a healthy stool. It could be that I don't understand your description too, since I'd expect a nutritionist to know. If we are talking about large, soft, honey-colored pellets then maybe that's normal for you. But if we are talking about
several small, distinctly rounded pellets (looking as if they were molded into little balls) that do not release completely without struggle, then I would not definte that as a healthy bowel movement at all.
What is a good b.m.?
What is a bad b.m.?
