If you grew up in the Western world, you were probably taught that poop is gross. Unspeakable, even. But it’s a waste to think of poop as a waste. Bags under our eyes tell us we’re not getting enough sleep. Sallow skin, thinning hair, and brittle nails tell us if our diets are imbalanced or if we're overstressed. Poop tells us all of that—and much more.
This friendly and conversational handbook from two certified yoga and Ayurveda coaches teaches you how to think of poop as a useful gauge of overall health, and helps you track the effects of simple lifestyle adjustments with:
• A seven-day tracker to observe your current poop health.
• Insights on the impact of diet, exercise, sleep, and stress on your poop, with tips for making improvements in all areas.
• Journal prompts that help you analyze behaviors that lead to good and bad poops.
• A 21-day tracker to help you see the positive impact of lifestyle changes on your poop over time.

Quick, witty, and full of useful information. Explanations of our bodily functions were simple and clear. Dietary suggestions and natural “remedies” provide a valuable resource. This could be beneficial for anyone experiencing digestive issues, from indigestion to IBS.
Very interesting and informative!!!
Gave excellent information and didn’t dwell on the science too much
OK, I admit it – the title Good Sh*t grabbed me. I have vivid memories of ““bathroom issues” going back MANY decades (missing the school bus to kindergarten because I was stuck in the bathroom, for example). And it seems that after retirement age, people’s lives way too often revolve around pooping – particularly in Western culture. So Good Sh*t, with its subtitle Your Holistic Guide to the Best Poop of Your Life, seemed like a book for me.
The authors, Julia Blohberger and Roos Neeter, are “profesionally trained and certified Ayurveda instructors,” and clearly have a passion for helping people improve their health. Their easy-to-read, humorous (without being flippant), and incredibly informative book, will be appreciated by anyone with an interest in gut health.
An explanation of how and why poop is an extremely important gauge of one’s overall health sets the foundation for the specific guidance that follows. There is a tracker to help analyze one’s current situation, along with insights into how diet, sleep, exercise, and stress all contribute in this area, and how simple lifestyle adjustments can help.
I’m still intrigued (although I have yet to do any serious analysis) and think this could be very helpful for many people. Four stars.
