A few days ago I wrote about what goes in and on the body.
Today, I am writing about what comes out of the body.
Yep, I am totally going there.
And you should get over it and read on :)…
You still with me?
You didn’t pass out right?
All of the above are ways the body gets rid of dead cells, toxins, bacteria, viruses, fungus, chemicals, etc. It’s the way the body takes out the trash. If our system is overloaded and overworked, the trash builds up. Imagine what the inside of your house would look like, smell like, be like if you never took out the trash, recycling, compost or used and need to be discarded items? Pretty gross and eventually unlivable. Well, that’s what can happen to your body. If you can’t or don’t eliminate your body’s waste, things get clogged up, break down, smells happen, lethargy sets in, diseases take over, and eventually the body cannot continue and it stops working. Your body MUST clutter clear or you’ll be all cluttered up.
Is your system running a clean ship? If not, please help it out. Let go of your waste people, I promise you will feel so much better. Your body will thank you with energy, clear thoughts, laughter, fun, and time.
Quick funny story…
My 8 year old niece and I almost always resort to talking about pooping or farting (by the end of this post, you will no longer be embarrassed at the word poop or fart…poop…fart…hee, hee). She loves talking about farts and burps. It cracks us both up. We were standing in line at Whole Foods to get a pizza. Out of the blue she says “Auntie, would you rather have snot or poop on your pizza?” Yep. This really happened. And I really did laugh out loud. I looked over at the lady next to us and she was smiling…we should all talk about poop and snot more often. By the way my answer was snot. Her answer was also snot. Her reasoning “cause poop is gross and my boogers taste good”…awesome.
Another quicker story…
When I was a kid, my Grandma used to talk about her BMs…All. The. Time…well at least that’s how it felt to me as a youngn’. For a while I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what BM stood for…for those of you as confused as I was, it stands for bowel movement. Ok, onward. I used to get so grossed out about this. Ugg, seriously, it was like finding out your parents had sex…once…to make you. Only this was my Grandma. So I get it about the weirdness of talking about ones elimination patterns. And now, here I am talking about it. And loving it!
From my early years to my late teens, I had issues with pooping. Most of the time, I didn’t poop for four days. FOUR days people! Now days, if I don’t go in one day, Houston we have a problem.
Have you ever watched a baby after they have peed or pooped? Total bliss. How about a dog? It’s like they got a hit of feel good magic. My dog Syrus would poop and then run around like a wild thing. I imagine, his body was doing the thank you dance for cleaning house.
So tune in and see what your body is telling you. How often are you pooping? Are you peeing every hour? What’s your pee look like? Smell like? How do your farts smell? Are you burping a lot, especially after meals? Are you sweating too much, too little? Does your sweat smell? What’s your mucous look like? Taste like? Just kidding, please DO NOT try that at home, or out or anywhere….cause that’s just gross.
Your body is a wonderland, full of sights, smells, and sounds. Get familiar with what your body is saying. Many issues of imbalance can be resolved, often with a few quick fixes.
Cheers to daily pooping and taking out the trash!
