Microblog: The Bristol Stool Chart – Normal Stools Should Look Like Type 3 or Type 4
🟤Normal stools are brown in color, they always should sink to the bottom and they should be well-formed. On the bristol stool chart, you want to be around a Type 3 and Type 4.
🔎If you don’t have these types of stools, in this week’s NwJ newsletter, I walk you through many troubleshooting tips to find what may be causing some of your loose stools or your constipation.
🧻By now, many of us know that loose stools are a sign of fat malabsorption. But if you experience nausea, floating or clay-colored stools, these are also signs of poor fat absorption.
🚽You also don’t want to be chronically constipated. Even if you are carnivore, you should go AT LEAST every few days. One of the ways we detox is through our stools. We should be going ideally, at least every 1-2 days.
⚠️And don’t rely on supports like magnesium citrate or extra vitamin C long-term. These are all temporary supports that don’t get to root cause.
💦I also talk about pH levels for ideal digestion. Just another reason why I’’ not a fan of alkalize waters. It’s been an amazing marketing campaign.

🍃I also share about the upcoming @CarnivoreCure plant protocol database.
