Stinky Poop? The Causes & Cure For Smelly Bowel Movements and Gas

Have you ever wondered why some people just seem to have bowel movements that stink worse than a dead body? If so then today I'll explain the 3 most common causes of stinky poop and what you can do to eliminate the causes of smelly bowel movements for life. Never smell up a washroom again!
The 3 Common Causes of Stinky Bowels
#1: Digestive Dysfunction - People who experience horrendously smelling bowel movements often have digestive problems as the root cause. This can mean a lack of stomach acid production, enzyme production, or a lack of beneficial bacteria meant to break down food in the intestines. Often when these same people change up their diet to a more whole food diet with a greater amount of fiber they find that their bowels improve and increase which reduces the amount of time food has to ferment and putrefy within the bowels.
#2: Food Allergies - Very commonly those with smelly bowel movements have allergies to the foods they eat all the time, this frequently includes dairy products, wheat products and soy. This can also include foods high in sugar which weakens the immune response further and increases the allergenic response and inflammation. An elimination diet is in order to avoid these common offenders and witness how your bowels change, not only in scent but in frequency and a reduction in pain or bloating as well.
#3: Candida - Lastly the very well known candida albicans overgrowth. This yeast exists in essentially everyone, however it doesn't always present problems until either the immune system has a problem or the beneficial bacteria meant to control it in the body are destroyed. What could do this? Well food allergies can weaken the immune system and allow for candida to overgrow and drugs, especially anti-biotics destroy your main line of defence against candida overgrowing in the body.
So why should you care about candida? Well for one thing smelly bowel movements is a #1 sign of an overgrowth, as candida creates fermentation in your body. Not only that but it also inhibits enzyme production, suppresses good bacteria re-development and limits stomach acid which also encourages acid reflux. This is only the beginning however. It also is well known to cause mental/emotional problems such as ADD and depression/anxiety while also causing chronic respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies. There are about 40+ other major symptoms so this is really just the basics. Interestingly enough the exact same factors that increase candida overgrowth also have been shown to help cancer grow as well.

  1. The stinky poop always leaves people feel embarrassing. Thanks for mentioning the causes for the stinking poop. One of my friends used to suffer and she was very depressed due to this issue. She used to undergo the medication and also used to follow the diet instructions which were usually said to. Earlier her diet habits were very bad and she often used to dine out the fast foods which made the condition worse.
    She started sidestepping the junk, fast and processed food and used to follow the diet habits and take adequate water. Sooner the issue was solved. Thanks to the natural practices which made her normal. Also thanks for posting this information on board which can help the most circles.
