What happens when you don’t take the garbage out for a week?
We've all seen it, we've all smelt it!! It starts to STINK, BULGE, and eat away at the garbage bag! Sounds gross doesn’t it? It’s the same idea with your colon (large intestine). We ALL retain old fecal matter (poop), dead red blood cells, excess mucous, parasites, and yeast in our colon. Whether we’re having 1 or 3 bowel movements a day, "garbage" can get trapped in there. What goes in must come out and a lot of the time we don't see the balance of the two. If you're only having one bowel movement a few times a week, imagine what you’re storing in there, what it’s doing to your gut lining and how it's effecting your health?
We all look forward to SUMMER months in January when there's heavy snowfall, and it's -30° outside. Ugh!! But let's get real for a second, shall we?? Is this weather a little TOO HOT for you?
Most would agree that 30° in any city, surrounded by buildings and pavement is TOO dang hot!! I'm sure there's a few who are reading this, shaking their heads saying "STOP COMPLAINING"! In reality, we are not accustomed to this kind of heat for long periods of time. After all, we are true Canadians; we may not like the cold but thats what we're use to.
Yes, it is disturbing, but not as uncommon as you would think (or hope). There are different types of nematodes, commonly called worms. Pinworms, roundworms, tapeworms, hook worms, just to name a few. For those of you familiar with livestock or have experience in veterinary medicine or animal shelters, you’ve probably seen worms at some point in the feces of an animal. And if you haven’t, you’ve likely ‘wormed’ your animal so they don’t catch them.
Symptoms can vary from patient to patient and are not gender or age specific. Common complaints include; fatigue, constipation/diarrhea, mood swings; depression, anger, sadness, weight gain, weight loss, water retention...
