Blood in Stool | What Causes Blood in Stool?

Blood in Stool Causes Relate to Poor Circulation and Low Body O2

Blood in stool can originate anywhere in GI tract Presence of blood in the stool (rectal bleeding) is very common in modern people. It can occur in any part of the digestive tract up from the esophagus (due to varicose veins of the esophagus) down to the anus (due to anal fissures or hemorrhoids). Most likely, blood in stool is caused by hemorrhoids or anal fissures (with bright red blood or maroon-colored stools), diverticula, ulcers and other problems of the duodenum or stomach (with a black, tarry stool due to partial digestion of blood). In any case, if you notice blood in stool, it is smart to visit your doctor and rule out more serious causes such as cancer.

While there are more than 2 dozens of possible health conditions that can be causes of blood in stool, virtually all of them relate to insufficient perfusion (reduced blood flow), low oxygenation and an inability of the GI organs to repair themselves.

Poor circulation and low body O2: the key cause of blood in stool

The real causes of blood in stool are the same as the causes of low body O2 and reduced perfusion of all vital organs in modern people. The key cause is clear from this graph.

Changes in breathing (minute ventilation) during last decades

Brain O2 levels after 1 min of overbreathing
Obviously, not only the brain and heart, but all other organs, including GI organs, suffer from reduced circulation and diminished O2 supply that leads to inability of various organs to repair themselves.

Virtually all people with blood in stool have less than 30 seconds for the DIY body-oxygen test, while the medical norm is about 40 s. This result explains why people can suffer from rectal bleeding (another name for blood in stool) for many years and sometimes decades.

Blood in stool solutions

Depending on the source or location of bleeding, one can make useful dietary and lifestyle changes in order to get rid of blood in stool. However, one can practice the best physical exercise routines, eat tons of organic super-foods, or consumes kilograms of supplements, drink canisters of super juices, but if your body-oxygen levels remain the same, you can continue to suffer from the same problems with blood in stool, which, over time, can even get worse and worse.

This Table helps us to understand why people with chronic diseases are even more likely to suffer from blood in stool in comparison with people without detected diseases.

Note that advanced stages of asthma can lead to lung destruction, ventilation-perfusion mismatch,
and arterial hypercapnia causing further reduction in body oxygen levels.

Doctors According to clinical experience of more than 150 Soviet and Russian doctors, the key goal for successful treatment of blood in stool is to increase body-O2 content up to about 30 seconds or more to start healing and get rid of blood in stool naturally. They found that the main lifestyle factor to maintain structural integrity and strength of the GI tract (with no blood in stool) is physical exercise with nose breathing, while other lifestyle factors (such as correct diet, all required nutrients, good sleep hygiene, and so on) are also necessary. Main destructive factors that diminish body O2 and worsen blood in stool are the same factors that cause overbreathing. They include supine sleep (sleeping on the back), mouth breathing, chest breathing, insufficient exercise, overheating, incorrect posture (slouching), eating too much, talking too much, and so on.

Diaphragmatic breathing, which should occur 24/7, is crucial for people with GI problems and other conditions leading top blood in stool.
