The Bottom Line
Proper assimilation of food and elimination of feces is important for maintaining health. Improper elimination from the colon causes retention of waste and unhealthy substance accumulation, which results in poisoning or autointoxication.
When the colon does not function promptly, the result is an accumulation of harmful and highly poisonous wastes; Ayurveda calls it ‘Ama’. Ama is considered the root cause of most ailments, as per Ayurveda.
The normal duration between the time the food is eaten until the feces is expelled is between 16 to 24 hours. If the residue remains for more than 24 hrs, it gives rise to toxins.
