    Considering Colon Cleansing?

    "Colonics" is a popular process of trying to improve colon/intestinal health by removing built-up material and infections, producing better BMs (more regular and more normal) along with improved health.

    There are several techniques for colon cleansing, including fasts, specialized diets, drinking teas & powders, and even colon hydrotherapy.

    It is good to learn about this topic and to check with a health professional too!

  • Skinny Bowel Movements

    What is a Skinny Bowel Movement?

    A skinny bowel movement (BM) is a bowel movement with a low diameter. Depending on a person’s normal BM size, this may range from 2cm to only a few millimeters. Often, as a result of this, a skinny bowel movement is much longer than a normal BM, extending as long as a meter or more.

    Cause of Skinny Bowel Movements

    The greatest cause of thin bowel movements is a tight or tense anal sphincter. When the hole is small, the log is skinny.

    Tight sphincters can be the result of voluntary muscle action or involuntary tension. Involuntary cases are often connected to stress, a period of unusual personal discomfort, or an unintended habit formed from a prolonged struggle with frequent bowel movements. Cases of voluntary tight sphincters may be connected to an attempt to prevent or delay an unwanted bowel movement, an attempt to produce a silent bowel movement in an awkward social situation, or bizarre personal practice.

    Cure for Skinny Bowel Movements

    In most cases, a skinny bowel movement problem can be relieved by muscle relaxation and emotional release. If you are trying to accomplish this, consider finding a private toilet, leave your stress and worries outside of the bathroom, bring along a good book, and just let loose. Adopting a yoga practice of deep breathing, comfortable stretching, and saying corny things like “I love myself” (and believing it) have been known to help cure skinny BMs.
