The Bristol Stool Chart classify  the form of human faeces into seven categories

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_stool_scale

As they say: "Types 1–2 indicate constipation, with 3 and 4 being the ideal stools (especially the latter), as they are easy to defecate while not containing any excess liquid, and 5, 6 and 7 tending towards diarrhoea."

My stools are very diferent normally number 2, but it can change from type 1 to 5. So I understand I have a problem :) and for that I'm in BTD

At the same time, I've begun to drink Kombucha and hemorrhoids has worsened

I understand a normal BTD stool must be the number 4, isn't it?

If you are constipated,or hard, try what finally worked for me..

take a table spoon of extralight olive oil twice a day.. I take it and wash down with water.. do that for two month and by then you will be much more normal.. but it took me that long..

I took the oil for weightloss purposes.. so as to cut my craving which is a specific formula, but in two month I finally had proper elimination.. after decades of difficulties....

You might have hemoroids because you strain.. try this for at least 2 month and see if it is not the cheapest, safest,and healthiest solution.. (please report back)

Wheat and dairy have a laxative effect on me.  I tend toward constipation when I follow BTD closely.

BTW, I once saw the stool of an autistic boy that, if it were not in that setting, I'd've wondered not only what species produced it, but also what planet it was from.

It was the same size and shape of a toy football.  It's girth was similar to that of a mango, but it was longer and tapered equally at the ends.

It was not solid brown.  It was a conglomerate of shades of brown and tan patterned like large grain particle board.

I mention this because it undergirds why I think the stool chart that's referenced in this thread is meant for simpletons.

I think olive oil helps me go too. Why?

Oh and that stool chart doesn't appear to have a healthy stool, from what I can tell.

As soon as I read Goldie's post, I went right for my olive oil....followed by a glass of water.  Will update my results.  EVOO is a diamond for me anyway....but I generally don't just take it off a spoon.  Noticed that an hour later, my joints felt better.  Thanks, Goldie!  :)

Me too.
I'm trying everything but I have difficulties to follow all the advices from this forum and establish a correct routine: water with lemon, olive oil, miso, kombucha, green tea, peanuts, gluten free....

Also Collinsonia is good for hemorrhoids.

Second day in a row I'm taking olive oil as a supplement...1 T off a spoon followed by water. Nothing to report in the way of stool changes, but it really makes a difference in how my joints feel.

I think it works better with food to be honest.

Also, I hate trying to take it straight after doing that a few times as a supplement. I know a few other people that can't even eat it now because of that.

Good olive oil to me is like good chocolate. I love both only chocolate is a black dot...

But, I think I could drink olive oil right out of the bottle...:)

In MY dietetic use (according to the instruction in shangri-la**** book) the oil is to be taken TASTE**** less meaning I don't breath it in.. and one hour away from any food taste..   I took the oil**** so as not to be hungry or have cravings..

If weight is not on issue, then it would not matter how or when-- so long as it is not fried..  

But I did say: it took me 2 month.. for me it was a positive side effect..

For A's it might be to much at first.. it is all in the individual testing..

Goldie,
A Doctor I went to years ago told me to make sure to take some oil with each meal, and at the time she didn't clarify for the constipation which I'd had following broad based antibiotics and getting candida.  So thank you for this suggestion as I love olive oil and use it in food, will now make an effort to get a few good doses a day.  
thanks, Lin
