Intro (0:00)News and Views (0:56)When Stacy reached out to Sarah to confirm the recording time there was a bit of a funny mix up over the topicWe have a lot of questions on constipation and it is an important topic to talk about because it is a common side effect of a lot of conditions, and people commonly experience it when transitioning their diet, but paleo may not correct the problem eitherConstipation is a relatively common thing to suffer from, yet experiencing daily healthy bowel movements is an important thingBut a bit on life before we get to the topicSarah turned in a book this last weekAnd Stacy celebrated a birthday, but she can't talk about general life updates knowing that a poop discussion is about to happen as discussing bodily functions makes her very uncomfortableScience with Sarah (9:00)This week Sarah wanted to discuss transit time and what all impacts thatWhat happens when you complete a transit test at a doctor's officeA good speed for food to move through the digestive track is between 18 and 24 hours, and if digestion takes longer than that it points to some deficiencies with digestionThings that impact speed are a variety of hormones, neurotransmitters, the type of gut bacteria that is present, and the muscle contractionsHormones are very sensitive to the foods we eatStool is made up of 80% bacteria so if you have too much bacteria or they are in the wrong part of your digestive track you are either building that bulk too soon up the gastro track or you are building up that bulk in an exaggerated wayBacteria is also very sensitive to the things we eatFiber is a regulator itself because what it does to hormones, the bacteria, and the gastro trackHaving sufficient fiber of both soluble and insoluble is very importantIt is also important to have proper fluid intakeMineral sufficiency is also important as it supports the muscle contractionsStress has a direct effect on bowel health, as does having an active lifestyle and quality and quantity of sleepThere are a bunch of other things that feed into digestion regulation as well, like the health of the digestive track organs and how you are chewing your foodFor people who are battling constipation it is key to think about how you are taking care of your gut bacteria, looking into possibly testing your neurotransmitters, and finally looking at a number of other medical conditions that all impact transit time - like autoimmune conditionsIt could be something as simple as drinking more water, consuming more fiber, or increasing a micronutrient that you are lacking inBut it could also be a lot more complicated and constipation should always be discussed with a medical professionalYou could also try things like the Squatty Potty or the Step and GoWhen constipation is caused by something outside of the digestive track it allows for a dysfunctional micro biome to develop, creating a stagnant environmentThe definition of constipation is a bowel movement every 48 hours if the bowel movement is not a good form on the bristol stool scale, if at 48 hours the form of the stool is still good than that would be defined as normal and not constipation. However, if the form is not good and did not pass with ease than that would be constipationIf it is every 72 hours than no matter what the form looks like it is constipationStool should be a type four on the bristol stool scaleStacy and Sarah briefly discussed etiquette when it comes to stool analysisA bit on laxativesWhat Stacy defines as a normal stoolThere are multiple forms of constipationJust because something is common doesn't mean it is normalQuestions & Answers (42:40)Philippa - just started the autoimmune protocol, and experiencing improvements in symptoms, but bowel movements have gone from daily to two to three times a week, why?Stacy recommends, if possible, to be mobile in some capacity to help balance hormones and get things movingHydration is very helpful to Stacy, especially through bone brothVegetables are also
