We are still a little embarrassed to talk about it but the truth is that it is important to know the habits that your bowel and bladder have and achieve a healthy, and above all, satisfied relationship with your belly.
Sohow many times is it normal to go to the bathroom? In a matter of bodies what is normal for one person may not be normal for another. According to a 2010 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology, 98% of respondents had very different habits, so much so that some went to the bathroom 3 times a week While others 3 times a day (after each meal practically).
There is not a correct number for everyone, because most people have their own routine to go to the bathroom the same number of times a day and during the same time. Deviating significantly from the regular pattern can be considered healthy, but it can also indicate the development of a stomach or intestinal problem.
The frequency with which a person depends on a variety of several factors:
– Fluid intake
Because the large intestine absorbs excess water, not drinking enough fluids can stiffen bowel movements and make it harder to remove.
– Your age
Constipation is linked to aging, because it causes the intestine to slow down, so feces do not pass so quickly.
– Little physical activity
Keeping active helps the colon to function better and moves stool through the intestines more efficiently.
– A diet low in fiber
A diet high in fiber will help us to have more regular bowel movements. A diet that lacks fiber can cause constipation or other digestive problems.
