Mucus in stool often indicate that there is an inflammation of the intestines. It could occur when either there is constipation or diarrhea. In mormal case it is whitish in color. According to alternative systems, the more common causes of mucus in stool includes bacterial overgrowth,sensitivities and food allergies. With bacterial overgrowth, bloating and gas usually worsen after eating anything which contains sweets/sugar, whether it’s white sugar, bread, pasta, rice or milk (which contains the sugar lactose). Other causes may be due to Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, Diverticulitis. These are often accompanied by diarrhea. Sometimes, rectal bleeding can also occur with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. If there is no underlying disorder present, mucus in stool, abdominal bloating, and constipation are often helped by increasing water intake and substances which soothes the intestinal lining. If the tongue has a thick coating with teethmarks on the sides, greasy foods, dairy products, and wheat may be contributing to the mucus in stool. Avoiding these foods is often recommended, at least until the condition improves. One may improve the digestion system simply by following the things in natural ways: •Take smaller bites. •Put your fork down in between bites. •Thoroughly chew each bite of food. •Carbohydrate digestion begins in the mouth – chewing grains thoroughly allows amylase, the digestive enzyme present in saliva, to digest the grains. •Get Enough Water;Insufficient water intake is a primary cause of constipation. Constipation then causes an imbalance in bacteria, promotes inflammation of the intestinal lining, and can even lead to the absorption of larger molecules, a condition known as intestinal permeability. Water facts ; body is 76 percent water? Body loses 2.63 quarts of water a day, every day? And, more than 99 percent of all chemical reactions in cells are facilitated by water? For great health, one need to constantly replenish that water? At least for smile life! •Increase Dietary Fiber; Good sources of dietary fiber. •Practice Mindful Eating; Eat in the moment. Savor every bite, enjoying the flavors, textures, and smells of your meal. •Use smaller cutlery so that you eat less with each bite.
