Have you ever wondered what happens with the food we eat? where does it go, how does it disappear from the mouth? How does our body use this food, and where does the waste go!!!! awwww!!! Is there any magical process behind this???!!!
Yes my dear ones, your body is a magician who performs all these magical experiments for you. And it’s not for a day or couple of week but each and every day, every second for your life. Though you are sleeping, your body is awakened for you 24/7.
One of these magic performed by your body is your Bowel Movement.
What if you are not throwing out rubbish from your sweet home? Will it be sweet if waste, stale is inside your house? Of course not. Same happens with your body also.
Let’s know about what this process exactly is…
What is Bowel Movement?
Food that we eat from the mouth has a long journey, It has to pass through a process called Digestion. And last stop for this food is Bowel Movement.
When we eat food through the mouth by chewing it up to the sufficient number of times as we discussed in our previous post Chew your food and lose weight faster. This food reaches the small intestine by passing through the throat and the esophagus and then to gut or stomach.
when it reaches the small intestine, muscular walls absorb all the nutrients.
Bowel Movement :
Digestion begins in the mouth and ends to Bowel that is the lower part of your digestive tract. When food reaches to your bowels, some part of water and salt remained after digestion are absorbed. Some waste left after digestion becomes more solid and left as Bowel Movement.
This waste produced after digestion is usually called as a stool(Bowel Movement). This stool passes out of our body through the rectum. The rectum is a chamber which connects colon or large intestine to the anus. Feces is a synonym for a stool which is waste after digestion of the food you eat or fluid you drink. It can be solid, semisolid or sometimes in fluid form also.
Why feces occur in these states??? Yes, you are absolutely right. This happens because of the Bowel Movement.
Regular Bowel Movement:
Every human has a different body structure and bodily functioning. Not everyone has the same Bowel movement in a day. Healthy Bowel is a crucial topic as a change in Bowel Movement can be a sign of unhealthy gut. And I actually experienced what problems an unhealthy gut faces and I don’t want that to have happened with you as mine.
Understand, rather bold these lines that Everyone has unique Bowel. Bowel Movement varies people to people, person to person. It’s not necessarily what is normal for a person should be normal for another one.
Research says that one should have Bowel Movement for a maximum three times a day or minimum three times in a week. Means regular Bowel Movement is At most thrice a day or at least thrice a week.
Bowel Movement and Diarrhea:
Normally it takes 36 hours to pass stool through the colon; but due to some reasons, Bowel Movement is not normal. Sometimes stool passes through small intestine quickly. We may say this is the reason for diarrhea.
When stool(Bowel Movement) is loose or watery, It is a symptom of diarrhea.
Bowel Movement and Mental piece:
From years of observation, I found that the Normal Bowel movement is super important in every aspect of life. especially for the peace of mind or say for concentration, for deep sleep, your bowel movement should be fine.
You may disagree with me but: Did you observe that, when you have an incomplete bowel movement, you can’t enjoy deep or sound sleep and the next day you feel Boring, lazy why? it happens because of an upset stomach and of course incomplete bowel movement.
May Disturb Bowel Movement:
one more important thing wants to share with you, if you are a late night person or if you don’t go early to bed, you are disturbing your bowel movement, this is not true for all, but I am saying this because of some reasons.
A body needs time to digest the food, absorb nutrients and separate the waste or say undigested part and you are disturbing the whole process by not going early to bed.
As we already said, stomach or Gut is the second brain and abnormal bowel movement means abnormal gut(Second brain) so definitely, it disturbs your sleep, do you agree?
