Let’s talk about poop.
Well, yeah. I mean, it’s hardly polite table conversation! And who really wants to discuss things like bowel habits, gas or heartburn? (Unless, of course, you’re pregnant and therefore mention it at every opportunity as a badge of honour.) But for the rest of us, we just don’t do poo.
At this point, you may be wondering “Okay Lena, how much did you get paid to talk about potty habits on your blog?” And in the spirit of full disclosure, the answer is… $0. That’s right, not a dime. Because the truth is, I really do think far too many people are dying of embarrassment – literally. If more people opened up about issues “down there”, they’d be quicker to seek medical assistance which could conceivably save their life. And, digestive disorders are a growing healthcare concern, affecting more than 20 million Canadians every year.
Still aren’t feeling all this toilet talk? Then perhaps this is for you – made possible through the generous support of Rexall, the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation (CDHF) developed Gi BodyGuard – a FREE and innovative App allowing those suffering to quickly, confidently and privately track the activities of their gastrointestinal system.
Therefore, using an *incredibly* easy log, you can track food intake, symptoms, stool patterns, pain and medication – allowing you to make note of your reactions as soon as they happen. When you’re ready to see your doctor, simply send a self-generating summary via e-mail, ready to print out and take to your appointment. In other words, you won’t have to rack your brain trying to remember what you ate/how you felt/what hurt/how long it lasted/etc etc. It’s already been logged – and is at your fingertips!
I checked out the App and can certifiably say that its easy peasy.
