I am motivated to talk crap because of my latest finding in my own backyard....no, it's not from a large dog, definitely not from my cat...yup...it's from a bear. I, a city dweller for the past 38 years, had a black bear in my backyard! Completely exciting.
It was due to the bravery and courage of my boyfriend that I managed to get a great shot of it and thought..."what a great subject for my blog"....Let's talk Poo.
Why does this relate to health? Everything. What comes out of your body is a great indicator of what you are putting into your body. I know it isn't a sexy or attractive topic, but it is an important one. Think of each bathroom visit as a report card for your health. For example, if your pee is yellow, you may be dehydrated.
It is important that you have at least one bowl movement a day to keep your pipes clean. If your poop resembles that of a rabbit, you may need to drink more fluids. If you are reading a novel from cover to cover while on the pot, you may need to add more fiber to your diet. A simple vegetable addition would work wonders. I highly recommend "googling" this a bit more or better yet, asking your health care provider.
So next time you are enjoying the latest People magazine in the peaceful calm of your bathroom, be sure to take a look at your artwork before flushing. What you learn from your deposit could be beneficial to your health!
Okay...I'm done now..you can stop squirming in your seat.
