Q: Everyone should have at least one bowel movement every day.
A: The correct answer is "false".
Although one or more bowel movements is considered ideal by many natural health practitioners, if you exercise and are getting enough fiber and water in your diet, it is still considered normal to miss a day here and there. In some cases, fiber supplements may help, but forcing bowel movements by using stimulant laxatives (for example, laxative teas) is not recommended.
An ideal bowel movement is
medium brown, the color of plain cardboard. It leaves the body easily with no
straining or discomfort.
It should have the consistency of toothpaste, and be approximately 4 to 8 inches long.
Stools should enter the water smoothly and slowly fall once it reaches the water. There should be little gas or odor
