I wonder if there are any blogs out in the inter-webs that are dedicated to poop. If not, maybe I will have the first. I decided to start a journal for my research and findings with A’s digestive issues and rashes.
The last few weeks have been really hard, frustrating, and full of poop talk. A has been having more than usual flare ups on her face and going from diarrhea to constipation. A went 4 days with painful constipation…after trying prune juice, coconut oil, tummy massages, baths and oils we had to give a suppository. (I will never do that to her again! We cried together for half hour after) She was able to get relief. We went right to the chiropractor after as well. All during this bout of constipation her face was really rashed.
We then went almost another 4 days with no movements but at least she wasn’t in pain. Went to see our chiropractor and she released just after in his waiting room! Chiropractic care works!! Since then we have been giving her soft foods and prune juice. She seems to be able to work it out a little better now.
What I am finding is that her face can be completely clear of any rashes then she releases gas or poops and her face rashes. There is a direct link happening between her face rash and her digestion. I have been doing research lately and found this…
These diagrams are a form of Chinese Face Mapping that correlates rashes/acne to a function in the body. A rashes mostly around her mouth and up towards her eyes. This diagram shows those are associated with her digestive and immune systems. So interesting to me!
I told our chiropractor about this and he agrees with my findings. Now the question is WHY and WHAT is causing the digestive problems.
The other day we visited our AP for a “second opinion” and he ordered a stool test we have to do. We haven’t received the kit yet but I’m excited to research more into what it can tell us. He was saying it will be able to see if its a parasite or just intolerance type symptoms. Ill write more on that soon!
I also checked Dr. Google today while doing some research…I found a few things it COULD be.
1. Liver disease
2. Colon cancer
4. Crohn’s disease
5. Gynecological disorder
I also learned : don’t trust Dr. Google. He’s a quack.
Our current plan of action is to keep watching for patterns and noting them. We also hope to take the fecal testing.
That’s enough talk about poop for one day!
