What Your Poo Is Telling You

"Poop" is often a taboo topic, but the truth is, it's a critically important biological function that should be talked about.

The color, shape, size, and frequency of your bowel movements may provide clues about how healthy (or unhealthy) you are.

In his book, What's Your Poo Telling You?, Dr. Anish Sheth covers a number of issues you can identify by paying attention to what lands in the toilet bowl.

Dr. Sheth joins Dr. Friedman in this encore episode from 2018 to discuss what indicators characterize healthy and unhealthy stools, what a "normal" schedule is, why you shouldn't necessarily panic if you see blood, and how you can improve your overall health by changes to your diet.
