Blood In My Poo

There are a number of reasons for the 'blood in my poo.' Here you will learn some of the reasons and what you can do. There is no need to be upset about seeing the red. It is a human biological condition. It can be fixed and you can get back to your life.

Our most important focus on this section, stopping blood loss that results in lower blood counts.

'Blood In My Poo:'
What It's Saying About You

The presence of blood means that you have sprung a leak, so to speak. There are different amounts of blood and different ways the blood may appear.

The amount may be so small, it can only be found with a laboratory test called a fecal occult blood test. This tests for blood that cannot be seen by simply looking. Sometimes the blood is visible, either as streaks in the poo or as drops in the toilet water. When the blood is bright red, this is often caused by a ruptured hemorrhoid. This is not usually as serious as other forms of blood in the stool.

When the bleeding happens farther up inside your gut, the blood may come out black colored. If there is enough, it may have the consistency of tar. It will be black, very sticky and will take several wipes to clean it up. It may be a bleeding ulcer in the stomach or high up on the digestive tract.

Coffee Grounds Poo Warning Sign to You

Another blood in my poo, issue, is when it looks like coffee grounds. This is usually caused by a bleed in the stomach. If you have this, you need to go see a doctor ASAP (as soon as possible).

Dark Blood in Stool vs Bright Red Blood

Dark blood is indicative of blood from higher up in the GI tract than bright red blood. The bright red is often from the very end of the GI tract. It is most often from hemorrhoids.

Blood in My Poo: Other Causes

An anal fissure: is a tear or cut in the mucous membrane near the anus. This is similar to the crack one might get on a lip. These can be caused by hard stools passing through the anus. When following the Water Cures protocol, this is unlikely to happen. Healthy stools should be formed, come out with out the need for wiping and should be soft enough to fall apart in the toilet water.

Angiodysplasia: abnormal blood vessels that due to being fragile, easily bleed.

Colitis: one of the inflammatory bowel diseases, can result in bleeding.

Colorectal cancer: can cause bleeding that may not be noticeable.

Diverticulitis: Sometimes the diverticula or small pouches in the colon wall may become infected and even bleed. This can be a cause of the blood in the stool. It is also the sign of gut problems and can mean other more serious problems may happen.

Esophageal bleeds: from tears or varicose veins in the esophagus. These can start bleeding and result in blood in our stool.

Inflammation: such as in inflammatory bowel disease in the gut can lead to bleeding.

Peptic ulcers: or an opening in the lining of the stomach or duodenum (the small section between the stomach and the small intestine). One cause is an infection of a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori. Stomach ulcers can also be caused by long term use of anti-inflammatory drugs including aspirin, naproxen and ibuprofen.

Polyps: these are growths (technically benign cancers) that can bleed and become malignant cancer.

Stealth Symptoms: quite simply, you may not be aware or not feel anything, yet the bleeding may be going on.

Overt Symptoms: include vomiting, weakness, abdominal pain, diarrhea. Some may have difficulty breathing, palpitations, fainting. Sometimes weight loss may be experienced.

A Symptom Of Concern: If you experience nausea and dizziness at the same time, you may have a medical emergency. You may have an abdominal aneurysm. This could result in sudden death. You need to get checked out and rule this out.

When you see undigested food or blood in stool, this is a sign that things are not right. The simplest thing to correct this starts with giving your body what it needs to heal and function properly.

Get Diagnosed for the 'Blood in My Poo'

You need to see a doctor to get a diagnoses and to know what is going on in your gut.

For example, a black, tarry stool is likely an ulcer or other problem in the upper part of the digestive tract. Bright red blood or maroon-colored stools usually indicate a problem in the lower part of the digestive tract such as hemorrhoids and or diverticulitis.

Blood in My Poo, What to do...Treatment

Your doctor will try to figure out what is bleeding, stop the bleeding and eliminate the cause of the bleeding. While many chose this course and if the bleeding is bad enough, it may be necessary to take this course, there are options.

The human body has a tremendous ability to heal, if we give our body what it needs to heal.

The first thing we need for optimal gut health is hydration and the electrolytes to get into the cells of our body. Even the stool is dependent on enough water so that it can be properly formed.

Acid Reflux Solution

While not typically associated with blood in stool, this is something that affects the beginning of the GI tract. There is a simple solution to this. It was rediscovered by Dr. Batmanghelidj in an Iranian prison. Click here for more info.

Stomach Ulcers One of the early treatments for stomach ulcer bleeding, before it was even known that bacteria could cause the ulcers, was cayenne pepper. Research has found that the hot peppers can actually kill the unwanted insurgent bacteria. Then, there is an added benefit of preventing the unwanted bacterium from coming back.

Additionally, cayenne can help eliminate the pain. Of course, if you are already on medication or under a doctors care, run this by the doc first.

Many of the things your doctor will tell you are things you can do.

In addition to creating a habit of consistency in following the Water Cures, there are other things you can do.

More Fiber Eat at least 50% of your food as raw fruits and vegetables. There is an exception, namely if you have Crohn's disease or any digestive disruptive disease or fistulas, it will put needless stress on the gut to eat raw foods. It will need to be lightly cooked or steamed to make it easier to digest and get the nutritional benefit.

Magnesium This is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and over another 70 functions. It is essential for heart and healing tissues of our body.

Food Grade Zinc is like a natural antibiotic that is also an essential part of our overall health.

Sweet Potatoes: with a natural form of estrogen, may help end GI Bleeds.. When there is a gut bleed, a few studies found that estrogen helped the gut heal. Working with that as a theory, we started giving our elderly with a risk of GI bleed a sweet potato once a week. The result was a decrease in GI track bleeds and the need to send them to the hospital.

Your doctor will prescribe or recommend treatment based on the diagnosis. One diet that may help one problem may irritate another. It is essential that you become an educated consumer.

In all the treatments you may use, the Water Cures Protocol is the most basic that works with all treatments.

First, fix the reason for the blood loss and the 'blood in my poo, what should I do?'

Next, consider how to rebuild your blood with simple dietary changes.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
