Man's 29 Lbs. of Poop Removed: What Caused it?
Most of us have been a little “backed up” with constipation at some point in our lives. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably wondered, “well just how much poop do I have inside of me?”
For one man, this question had been growing….FOR 3 YEARS!
Let me explain…
After suffering from severe constipation for 3 years, a Chinese man recently underwent surgery to remove 29 pounds of feces from his body, and over 30 inches of his colon.
So how does this happen?
This man suffered from a rare disease called Hirschsprung’s disease. Those who suffer from Hirschsprung’s disease have missing nerve cells in the large intestine, which can make it difficult for the intestines to move stool along, and can create a blockage.
"...affects roughly 1 in 5,000 people in the US"
However, Hirschsprung disease only affects roughly 1 in 5,000 people in the US. And it is extremely rare that it would cause a blockage of this magnitude.
So what about a “normal” person’s digestive system?
While it’s unlikely that you’re going to have 29 pounds of poop inside of you, we have found in our research that up to 15 pounds is possible. A healthy digestive system is only going to have 2-5 pounds of poop in the body at any one given time. However, if you are not eating a fiber rich diet, that number can increase and compound on itself as blockages in the colon become more serious.
So what can we do to keep ourselves from getting bogged down carrying around excess waste in our bodies? Good eating might not be enough for everyone.
But nature does offer us some very effective solutions…
Psyllium Husk is perhaps one of the best of those natural solutions.
Psyllium husk is a premium, soluble fiber derived from the seeds of Plantago Ovata. When psyllium husk is ingested, it absorbs water in the gut and forms a gel-like substance that softens stools and makes them easier to pass. This gel-like substance also helps to lubricate the stool, making it easier to pass through the intestines.
The primary benefit of using psyllium husk to relieve constipation and keep our poops moving through our bodies. It works naturally and gently, without harsh chemicals or side effects. This makes it a great choice for people who are looking for a natural way to relieve constipation and keep their colon and intestines clean. It is also a great option for people who are sensitive to traditional laxatives, such as those who have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
In addition to its constipation-relieving properties, studies have shown psyllium husk to lower cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure, and improve overall heart health.
"Not all psyllium husk supplements are created equal..."
But you need to be careful. Not all psyllium husk supplements are created equal. To ensure that you’re getting the best possible results, it’s important to choose a high-quality product from a reputable brand like Terra Health Essentials. Terra Health Essentials makes a popular product called Detox Cleanse in a convenient pill form that you can easily integrate into your daily routine. It has been specially formulated to provide an optimal dosage of psyllium husk for daily use.
A study published in the journal Microorganisms found that psyllium husk can help to improve the composition and function of the gut microbiome in chronically constipated women. This is great news because one of the primary drivers of constipation is an unhealthy gut. But by feeding good bacteria with the same substance that keeps things moving, we are killing two birds with one stone!
The product also includes 3 other key ingredients (Gotu Kola, Milk Thistle & Turmeric) that work to detoxify the vital organs of the body. This ensures that not only are you getting rid of bodily waste as you should, but you’re also providing support to life-saving organs, such as the liver.

So what happened to the man with the 29 pounds of feces anyways?
Well, after removal of the feces mass, and a portion of his colon, the man went on to treat his condition through a combination of medication, supplementation, and diet changes. He is expected to make a full recovery and will be able to live a normal life without the fear of recurring constipation (and so can you). Click here to check out Detox Cleanse!
