Podcast 186: Bowel Health – Part 1

Martin and Scott talk about things that people don’t want to talk about – or hear about… daily bowel movements. It’s not polite conversation, yet it’s very important to pay attention to them.

Martin comes from a different culture.  He grew up in the Czech Republic and the toilets there are designed much differently than in the western world.  The poop does not disappear into the water and hole, it stays on a sort of platform until flushed – easy to inspect. People there take it as a daily routine to see what’s going on inside them, by looking at what’s coming out.

The first thing that really regulates this issue is fiber. Our ancestors ingested something like 150 grams of fiber a day.  Today, most people get 15 to 20 grams a day, and the recommended amount is 30 grams per day.

“In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems.”
This is a statement made by Dr. Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D, who has studied with some of the best doctors in the United States and Europe. He has had his own sanitarium for over fifty years and continues to practice with an open mind and heart. This is undoubtedly the reason he was once nominated for a Nobel Prize.

Take a look at Strata-Flora Superfood Blend, a great mix of tools that manage your health from tong to tail, from mouth to anus. Probiotics refer to the natural, beneficial bacterium to be found in the digestive tract. “Bad” bacteria, make us sick, while probiotics can protect us from degeneration and disease.
