Ayurvedic Diet & Digestion Made Easy
Ayurvedic Health Tips: StoolStools are formed in the colon as the colon extracts liquid from the digested food, forming solid pieces which are then eliminated. Stools should be assessed by consistency, color, smell, quantity, and frequency of elimination. Stools should also be checked for blood, mucus, and parasites. Since the colon is the home of Vata dosha, Vata is aggravated whenever there are irregularities with stools or elimination. Select one of the symptoms or behaviors relating to stool below. Or, see all areas in Poop. The stomach is called Mala in Ayurveda.
