Heres a good question! Almost everytime I go poo poo my nose will run! Even if I don't have a cold or anything and then stops soon after I leave the bathroom. Any advices?
My nose runs when I poop. My eyes also water sometimes. This is not a bad thing.
Dr. Oz actually addressed this when asked if this is normal. He described it as a parasympathetic release and said not only is it normal, it’s one of the necessary functions for cleansing out junk. There are only so many ways the body can eliminate toxins. You either poop, pee, cough or sweat it out. One action commonly triggers another, and we should all be grateful for this.
When you sleep, the body detoxes. When you wake, the body is ready to eliminate these toxins. We jumpstart this by drinking a glass of water, a cup of coffee, stretching, taking a few deep breaths, having a cigarette, etc. The idea is that we’re getting the body moving internally. If you’ve ever dieted, detoxed or started an exercise regimen, you may have noticed a substantial uptick in bowel movements, urination, lymphatic cleansing or sweating. Your body is thanking you for finally stimulating the cleansing process via diet and exercise.
I’m happy when a good poop makes my nose run. It makes me feel better and cleans me out. Mucus is eliminated rectally and lymphatically. The two go hand in hand. If you’ve noticed only a recent uptick in nose runs while pooping, you may be able to attribute this, at least in part, to eating an unhealthy diet and not exercising enough. If you’ve recently started taking better care of yourself, your body is pushing out the old stuff. This is all good news. The typical American diet is loaded with excess sugars, hormones, preservatives, etc. This builds up toxins, candida and mucus. If you don’t excrete small amounts consistently via healthy diet and exercise, the body waits for a good chance to excrete what it can. Nothing stimulates the cleansing process better than a good bowel movement. My girlfriend makes muesli and we eat out of the same batch throughout the week. I have a few bowls per day, and it keeps my system clean…so clean, in fact, that sometimes I have to slow down because I can feel the after-effects and tummy tenderness from the soluble and insoluble fibers cleansing and scrubbing my system. The muesli helps me poop 2-3 times per day, so I always feel light. I usually go an hour after a meal. When I first began the regimen, my nose would always run when I pooped, because I was eliminating a lot of old buildup. Now my nose runs less, because my system is generally cleaner. I still get a runny nose in the morning with my first bowel movement though. But then again, if I have anything to cough up, it’s early in the morning.
Also, our bodies have been sweating out toxins all night…they’re just sitting on the surface waiting to be washed off. Same with morning breath…toxins in the system pushed up and waiting on the tongue to be washed away. If I go on, I’ll become less and less scientific and lose credibility; I’m not a doctor or nutritionist. The point is, we should all be so lucky to have such an efficient cleansing system. The alternative would be to become impacted, dehydrated, lethargic, irritable, toxic and eventually die.
If you want to feel better and make it easier on the system, drink more water, eat lighter foods more often in smaller servings, and get a little aerobic and anaerobic exercise in on a regular basis. Then, think yourself healthier and visualize your new and improved self.
And when your nose runs, be grateful!
I this answer! Thank you so much James!
Thanks for the "straight talk" comments. At least I know it's a normal body function.
Ok. I figured it out. Yeast! If this site gets any hits, let me know and I'll let you know details to solve problem. It is working for me.

Yeast that causes Thrush in the throat comes from where? Sinuses. Nose started running when yeast problems began a few years ago. Nose started running too. So, after checking with my pharmacist, who gave approval, I dropped about 1/2 tsp Nystatin into my sinus flusher and shook it up before flushing. Runny nose stopped in the bathroom after a few sessions. See if this works for you too. And remember, yeast can return to your sinuses, so you may need this flushing in the future.
whithin short minutes of going to my small residential bathoom my eyes start to water and my nose runs; this happens only in the bathroom as I sit on the toilet reading, and is fine upon leaving. There is no odor.
Allso a couple of months ago I was smelling heavy odor of what smells llke engine fumes in a closed garage. This was sporatic, and built up over a series of days until disappearing.
Can you suggest the cause of these symptoms?
I can't really say about the engine fumes smell that came and went, but I have heard that mold building up on shower curtains can trigger some allergies, and it's a good idea to try washing your shower curtains in a washing machine once a week or so. Maybe that would help? If you try it, please let us know your results!
you should check for proper function of the drain vents associated with the plumbing in your dwelling. A blocked or improperly operating vent can release sewer gas into the dwelling, causing the symptoms and conditions you describe. Sewer gas production/release can be especially bad in warm/hot climate, and on windy days. Good luck.
Thanks, I appreciate your informative response to a question I've had for awhile!
