Q. - I have an average bowel movement of 4 times in one week. My office mates say this is not normal. They say I need some colon cleansing. Is this true? Can aloe vera help me have a normal bowel movement? How many times is normal?
A. - Your office mates say that you need some colon cleansing. This only shows that they are concerned about your health.
I agree with them. You need a colon cleanse
People think that a normal bowel movement should be done daily.
Once a day is considered 'normal.'
But consider this - you eat your meals thrice a day, right?
Your food intake of 3x a day and your bowel movement of around 4x in one week can only mean bad news.
This could lead to health problems later on.
I say if you can do it 3x a day, then do it.
If you frequently experience any of these:
- Get tired easily
- Low energy
- Low sex drive, etc.
Your body may be telling you in a subtle way that you need to make some adjustments to your toilet habit.
And, regarding aloe vera, yes it can help.
A periodic bowel cleansing
with aloe vera gel can do you some good.
Hope this helps.
