Did you know that your stool could indicate if you're healthy or not? A stool analysis lets your doctor know if you show signs or indications of diseases like cancer and major digestive problems as well as find parasites that live in your system.
Your stool's color, consistency, shape, odor, and amount of mucus among others are considered and weighed against signs and symptoms of any disease. Your stool may also be checked for small amounts of blood or bacteria that may indicate something.
Why is stool analysis necessary? For those who may problems with internal organs, this kind of test is important especially if the doctor is trying to check your digestive tract, liver, and pancreas for signs of abnormality. Enzymes found in your stool may indicate what kind of problem or disease you may have.
Taken in the context of colon cleansing, you may be helping your internal organs out by purging out stuff once in a while. Since bacteria could be an indicator of something being off-balance in your digestive system, why not balance it by cleaning out your colon? Aside from colon cleanse programs, you could also help your system by taking probiotics (good bacteria) and eating more fruits and vegetables instead of meat and other fatty food.
