Listen to the MP3 Audio: The answer to your health is in your poop by Melissa Ramos at TEDxDistilleryDistrictWomen
Many of you may feel that what you’re about to hear may be taboo and even a little dirty.
My name is Melissa Ramos, nutritionist and acupuncturist, and I love talking about shit, from rabbit poop to pencil thin poop and logs that look like a baby’s arm, I think it’s crucial to realize the importance of opening up your brown star and having a healthy bowel movement.
Why? Because what’s in your toilet bowl will give you great insight on what’s going on with your health.
But here is the thing: people are so scared to talk about it. I mean, ladies, we don’t drop the mother load in our man’s toilet bowl; do we? No. And farts? Hell no; we whisper in our panties.
You see, the problem is that by not talking about it, many digestive issues continue to go unaddressed. You see, it’s made people public poop folks, prairie-dogging it and holding in their poop until they’re able to go home — you know you might be one of them — able to go home until you realize, uh, I’ve missed my poop window.
