In this condition, the intestine is not in a position to work efficiently and the reasons are plenty, varying from presence of ulcers to the swelling of the lining of the intestine. Although there are different types of intestinal disorders, the common symptoms associated with poor intestinal function are abdominal pain, frequent or irregular bowel movement, and poor appetite. Some of the common gastrointestinal disorders that can cause green defecation are given below:
Have you ever been in comfortable company and spoken about the color of stool? On an honest note, not many people appreciate talking openly about their bowel movement sessions. It, normally, is a topic that is shunned and detested, especially on the dinner tables! However, it should be borne in mind that the stool color in adults can cause involuntary worry.
It is seen that stool softeners are used in the long term treatment of constipation. The dose of the softeners given to the patient depends on his condition. In some cases, the dosage may have to be increased as well. However, it does not mean, that they should be consumed everyday. Once the problem is solved, the patient should go off the stool softeners. Absorption of mineral oil and some medications from the intestine is observed, when one consumes emollient laxatives. Absorption of mineral oil is not healthy for the body, as it can accumulate in the lymph nodes and liver, where it can give rise to inflammation. It is important that a stool softener is also not consumed with mineral oil or also with other prescription medications.
Along with fiber, even Omega-3 fatty acids work as natural stool softener. They help in preventing constipation and providing relief from its discomfort. The foods that fall under this category are walnuts, canola, tofu, salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, flax seed, and tuna. These foods help in cleaning and toning the intestines along with softening stool.
