A foundation of naturopathic medicine is engaging the healing power of nature. Nothing is more natural than a bowel movement. I suggest it is the most important product of the human body. Why? Because, not only does this process eliminate unwanted waste but it holds valuable information that can direct the clinician and the owner as to their present state of health. The problem is that in our current medical system, we look at stools and teach our patients solely about consistency and stool color as popularized by the Bristol Stool Scale and Stool Color Card for infant biliary atresia. Yet there are a plentitude of other important characteristics that serve as a “diagnostic” tool to elucidate issues within the gut microbioate, deficiencies of important vitamins, minerals and factors required for digestion and problems within regulatory systems such as the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Years of personal, clinical and evidence exploration has led to the conclusion that there are other ways to look at your stool. So take a seat and learn from Dr. Marisol Teijeiro what classifies the ideal stool, and what are the 11 measurable characteristics of your stools that can empower people around the world of all social classes to optimize their health.
