What is a normal bowel movement?

  • You should be able to evacuate your bowel in less than 2 minutes without any straining, squeezing or grunting.
  • Every bowel movement should be soft and mushy like smooth cottage cheese, slightly gaseous and should crumble and break up as it reaches the water on the toilet’s surface. Anything harder, dryer or more formed than this and you are constipated.
  • Healthy bowel movement should be the colour of wild honey and should smell basically of the food you have eaten.

With chronic constipation only 10% of the food eaten is utilized. Do remember that most laxatives are poisonous and merely serve to irritate the bowel, doing nothing to remove the encrusted mucus. If laxatives are used regularly the colon becomes weaker from over-stimulated and irritation so that the dosage has to be increased/ A properly functioning bowel means better food assimilation and it also increases vitality and allows better absorption of nutrients, often reducing the desire to eat as much food.
