Suzanne Somers Serves Up the Three Secrets of a Healthy Gut (VIDEO)


suzanne somers talks to brenda watsona bout poopLeave it to Suzanne Somers to take on a taboo, cringe-worthy topic and make it seriously fascinating! In today's episode of Suzanne Somers Breaking Through on the CafeMom Studios YouTube channel, Suzanne did a one-on-one with Brenda Watson, C.N.C., who Suzanne considers her resident digestive care expert ... and yes, she's also a "poop" pro!

Suzanne points out that moms don't flinch one bit when discussing their kiddos' poop, but when it comes to our own ... well, that's a whole different story. But it shouldn't be! In fact, we're seriously underestimating what our waste can tell us about our well-being.

Brenda points out that many of us -- especially those of us who suffer from constipation -- have inflamed digestive systems, which she adorably calls an "inner sunburn." She attributes this to a serious lack of omega-3s, digestive enzymes (like magnesium and minerals), and friendly bacteria (probiotics). Of course, there are also instances where we're ailing because we have underlying food sensitivities. Everyone's jumped on the gluten-free train lately, because it's trendy, but gluten isn't the only allergen causing some of us trouble. As Suzanne points out, your digestive system might have a problem with a bevy of foods, from pineapple to certain beans to eggs.

And your poop can clue you into a lot of this!! If you're not going two to three times a day, if the color or smell (I know, gross, but it's true) is seriously off, etc., it's basically your body telling you to get your gut aligned!

Here's the episode ... it's really so interesting!

Pretty amazing, right? I love that Brenda gave an easy, three-step action plan for viewers, too. I already take probiotics, but I've been wishy-washy on my fish oil supplement, and although I always try to chew my food well/slowly, it's something I feel like we could all be reminded to do more often. But now that I know how integral all three of these things are to digestive (and in turn, overall) wellness, I'm on it!

How about you -- did Brenda and Suzanne make you want to bolster your digestive wellness?

"If you're not going two to three times a day"

Uh....If I was doing this I would think something was seriously wrong LOL But yes, this is important stuff and it is often overlooked.

Anything from 3 times a day to 3 times a week is normal, so hopefully people don't freak out because they don't poop 3 times a day.

Interesting. I agree with the omegas, probiotics and you need raw enzymes to stay healthy.

I wondered about the 3 times a day thing, I wonder if it is a misprint.
