I have a fairly good sense of humor when it comes to the bathroom, and I think everybody should. Lighten up about it; laugh about it; it’s a fact of life. Bathroom jokes are also a great way to laugh off embarrassing situations, but there is a line between the occasional joke and every day occurrences. Do you find that you have to make jokes, excuses, or even denial for your bathroom problems on a regular basis? If its past the point of the occasional awkward joke, you may want to investigate possible health problems you could be facing.

Here are some signs there could be something wrong:
  • Gas (flatulence or burping)
  • Heartburn
  • Bloating
  • Loud stomach noises (that aren’t due to hunger)
  • Stomach cramping
  • Nausea
  • diarrhea or constipation
  • Mucous in stool

Because of this, it has become increasingly important for us to be able to manage stress efficiently. Read on to learn about how to better manage stress through dietary and lifestyle changes.
