Digestive disorders can start at a young age and persist for decades. These disorders can affect quality of life, social interactions, can lead to anxiety, and be a constant source of frustration. There is growing research showing the importance of a healthy, balanced digestive tract and the influence on multiple health conditions.
This can look like:
Constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, abdominal pain, changeable stools, discomfort, gas, bloating, slow digestion, belching, blood in the stool, mucus in the stool, vomiting, nausea, dark stool, stools that float, pain after eating, indigestion, and hemorrhoids.
What is considered "normal": ideally a person would have 3 well formed, easy to pass bowel movements per day, usually after each meal. Would be free from gas, abdominal pain, indigestion, bloating, or reflux.
This is an area that isn't often discussed but can provide helpful insight to assess how in balance your digestive tract is.
