The Causes And Treatment Of Blood In Stool:
The presence of blood in the stool (rectal bleeding) is very common in modern life. It can occur in any part of the digestive tract, from the esophagus (relating to varicose veins of the esophagus), down to the anus (relating to anal fissures or hemorrhoids). Typically, bloody stools will be 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 from partial digestion of blood). In any case, if you notice blood in your stool, it’s smart to visit your doctor and rule out more serious causes such as cancer.
While there are more than 2 dozen possible health conditions that can be the causes of blood in the stools, 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 the stools are the same as those factors causing low body O2 and reduced perfusion of all vital organs in modern society. This key cause is clear from this graph.
Obviously, the brain and the heart aren’t the only organs to be adversely impacted. All other organs, including GI organs, will subsequently suffer from reduced circulation and diminished O2 supply which leads to an inability of various organs to repair themselves.
Virtually all people with bloody stool score less than 30 seconds for the DIY body-oxygen test. The medical norm is about 40 seconds. This explains why people can suffer from rectal bleeding (another name for blood in stool) for many years – sometimes even decades.
Solutions for blood in the stools
Depending on the source or location of bleeding, certain useful diet and lifestyle changes can be applied to get rid of blood in the stools. However, it must be stressed that it’s possible for one to practice the best physical exercise routines, eat tons of organic super-foods, or consumes kilograms of supplements and drink canisters of super juices yet really struggle with their health. Why? Because if your body-oxygen levels remain the same, you may continue to suffer from blood in the stools. Over time, this 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.
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 the healing process 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.
The 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 to blood in stool.
