Purisas are the solid wastes generated as the byproduct of digestion and dhatu formation. Healthy bowel movement is a sign of good health and an individual should have a good bowel movement at least once a day for the body to be healthy.
Proper elimination of body waste is critical to good health.
One should never suppress the urge to defecate.
Constipation can lead to the accumulation of ama in joints and lungs, instead of it being naturally expelled from the body.
Proper elimination of malas (body wastes- stool, urine, and sweat) is one of the criteria of good health. Malas naturally occur as an end-product of the metabolism of the body. Therefore, a certain amount of mala is necessary to sustain a healthy body.
Malas should always be eliminated from the body when the natural urge for it is experienced and you should never try to forcefully stop the urge to pass mala. If you do so, you may experience symptoms like headache, pain in genitals, colon, or lower legs, nausea and drowsiness, discomfort in bladder, and formation of gas.
Purisas are the solid wastes from digestion, incorporating end-product from dhatus formation. A healthy person should have a bowel movement at least once a day.
