The Bristol Stool Form Scale in A4 (Laminated).
The Bristol Stool Form Scale is a tool designed to visually represent healthy and unhealthy stools.
Bowel eliminations are one of the benchmarks of the health of human digestive system, and the ability to understand them and interpret them is a useful tool for colon hydrotherapists and their patients alike.
The Bristol Stool Scale or Bristol Stool Chart is a medical aid designed to classify the form of human faeces into seven categories. It was developed by Dr. Ken Heaton at the University of Bristol and was first published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology in 1997. Bowel evacuations are subdivided into seven distinct types, from acute diarrhoea to sever constipation, with the whole variety of options in between.
The seven types of stool are: Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass)
Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy
Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface
Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft
Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (passed easily)
Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool
Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces. Entirely liquid
Unlike the traditional stool scale posters, the Colonic Supplies
Bristol Stool Scale poster contains not only the images, but also descriptions of the reasons that may cause stools imbalances and ways of improving digestive health and regaining healthy stools. Designed for the reception area or therapy room of a colon therapy practitioner.
