How to analyze your stool:
Check in before you flush (Bristol Stool Chart below):
• How complete is it?
• Are you seeing any undigested food in your stool?
• What color is it?
• Is it too dry or too loose?
• Are you experiencing gas or bloating after eating?
What A Healthy Bowel Movement looks like:
• Stools should be relatively soft and easy to pass.
• Bowel movements should occur from one to three times a day.
• Gas, bloating and skin eruptions are indicators that the colon needs
• Poop should be brown or golden brown.
• Eliminations should be sausage-shaped, with a smooth nut butter-like
consistency - there should not be visible food particles mixed in
especially if you've chewed your food well.
The color of your stool:
It should be brown but it may be other colors
Green poop is often do to the newer introduction of a lot of leafy
Red poop is often from the consumption of beets and is usually an
indication of depleted HCL in the stomach
Red can also indicate bleeding in the lower digestive track or rectum
Black poop is due to bleeding in the upper digestive track or the use of
clay as we are doing in this cleanse so don’t be alarmed unless it
continues after the cleanse is over.
Lighter colored poop, grey or tan is usually lacking in bile salts
