Everything is Connected
The human organism depends on many things, and, the more care or necessary things it gets the better it feels, and we, being inseparable parts of it, feel the same. Thus, every nutrient we insert in our organism gets used and, eventually, the remains get expelled through feces. Remarkably, our feces and excrements can act as witnesses of our either proper or bad nutrition as well as our possible underlying medical conditions.
Characteristics of Human Feces
Depending on what we ate, we can expel different feces Differing in size, color, density and smell. Namely, those who eat fruits and vegetables regularly will have a more bright colored feces with a smell which is not highly unpleasant. However, those whose diets consist mainly of meat will experience their feces to smell extremely bad, being dark and most often hard. Liquid consumption, frequency of eating, as well as many other factors, may all contribute to results of one's bowel movement.
Bearing in mind all of the things mentioned above, experts have defined a type of feces which acts as an ideal one, reflecting a healthy person. Starting from the very process of bowel movement, it should go smoothly, without any additional pressure or effort. The feces should be bright, yellow or brown, floating on the water surface. Additionally, the stool should not be in fragments, but rather compact, cylindrical and soft.
The first signs of possible infections or bad bacteria in your organism is lack of consistency. Liquid or too watery feces, or those who sink down the toilet water indicate either the conditions mentioned above, or hemorrhoids. Constipation may also influence the health behind your bowel movement, possibly being the result of worms or other organisms in your intestines. Excessive sugar intake may cause feces to expel bubbles while in toilet water. In general, watery feces are in most cases results of diarrhea or similar conditions, and are mostly frequent and dehydrating.
Sticky and ooze-like excrements are most often a bad sign. These are results of either infections caused by salmonella and the likes, or some fungi. Foul smelling excrements are usually connected with the excessive protein intake, although, it may be a sign of some intestinal diseases.
Blood in one's feces followed by pain during bowel movement are all symptoms of some more serious conditions and should be treated as soon as possible. Hemorrhoids, or even cancer may be behind blood in one's stool. Extremely black or dark feces are also connected with intestinal bleeding and require timely medical intervention.
Finally, any other unusual colored feces, red, extremely yellow or white, may all be connected with parasite or bacteria infections, or conditions related to dysfunctions of certain organs. Thus, these should be treated in shortest timespan possible.
