“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”– Ann Wigmore
What was your meal for yesterday’s dinner? Have you ever noticed pain during defecation? Are you a “3 square meals a day” kind of person? Do you poop everyday? Do you have constipated stools?
The list of questions an Ayurvedic practitioner might ask you about your diet and daily habits goes on and on. This is because the way we eat and the lifestyle we lead has noteworthy impacts on our digestive and excretory system.
Many of us might have regretted taking a heavy meal on a night out with our friends or family after we confront appetite and bowel issues the very next morning.!
Over the past few years, homely food has been swapped for heavy junk food. This junk food era has resulted in uncountable health issues and cursed even the young with nutritional deficiencies and low metabolism as well as digestive disorders. They slow down the digestive process and make the stomach bloated. Believe it or not, there is a group of people out there who wish they had a healthy excretory system.” As a matter of fact ” what goes in must come out” is a helpful proposition to remember, being a gentle reminder to the fact that, we are sum total of what we consumed and let into our life. This clearly indicates for every anomaly conveyed by our body we should look back at the food we eat, the life we lead, and the choices we make.
Kerala Ayurveda’s Pil-O-Ease Capsules
Ayurveda considers examination of stool, as a peripheral outlook into the effectiveness of digestive and overall functions of the body. The formation of soft stools and their strainless expulsion indicate a strong Agni (metabolic fire) and a healthy Pakvashaya (colon)- the main seat of Vata dosha. You might have come across sticky stools, with a foul odor, hard stools, and that directly suggests the presence of Ama (undigested food particles). They are considered as products of a poorly functioning Agni (digestive fire), Aamashaya (digestive system), and Pakvashaya (colon).
Irregular excretory functions and lack of dietary fibers lead to digestive disorders as well as constipation, both of which give on to Arsha (Piles). This unlikely disruption of body functions results in Doshadushti. The aggravated doshas in turn affect dhatus (body tissues) and finally interferes with Malavahasrotas( channels for excretion). Arshas or Piles results when the vitiated Tridoshas inturn causes dushti of Maamsa and Medas dhatus (muscular and adipose tissues) and causes blockage of Guda marga (anal opening).
Just like Arsha, there are several such excretory disorders many of us are tired of trying to cope up with and which we are even ashamed to talk about! It’s time we move past the ‘runaway trend’ from our health issues and start acknowledging them with proper healthcare measures.
Kerala Ayurveda’s Pil-O-Ease are one of the most trusted and accepted digestive herbal capsules. These capsules are one of the most popular Ayurvedic remedial options for ensuring a normal healthy bowel movement.

The herbal components in these Ayurvedic capsules are blessed with therapeutic and medicinal values and are traditionally administered for various health conditions.
Now let us see how the broad spectrum herbal contents within these herbal capsules help in maintaining the normal metabolism of the body.
Mimosa pudica: The sensitive plant
Traditionally Mimosa pudica was one of the well-known herbs for digestive health. Mimosa pudica is mucilaginous and thereby aids in increasing the bulk of the stool. As the mucilage cannot be digested, it travels all the way through the colon facilitating easy elimination. The bitter and astringent taste possessed by this wondrous herb balances Kapha and Pitta dosha that have an immense role in maintaining a normal and healthy gut. Sluggish metabolism caused by vitiated Kapha results in poor digestive functions. Hence the presence of Mimosa pudica in Pil-O-Ease will undeniably complement normal and healthy colon and easy elimination.
Bauhinia racemosa: Bidi Leaf tree
Known as Kanchanar which in Sanskrit, means “A glowing beautiful lady”, the glowing white or pinkish beautiful blossoms of Bauhinia are hard to miss. The bark, gum, and leaves of this medicinal herb are used traditionally for Pittasra( bleeding disorders), and the bark is documented as an astringent that calms the colon. It is known for its property to maintain the tridoshic equilibrium. Time-tested Vedic scriptures have included it in Kashaya Varga or herbs having an astringent taste, by virtue of which it eases normal elimination and digestion.
Commiphora mukul: Guggul
Commonly called Guggul, this oleo gum resin has been in vogue since Vedic era for medicinal preparations and fumigation. The Laghu (light to digest), Vishada (clears channels), Sara (brings about movement) properties of the herb is very helpful in blessing the body with smooth bowel movements and excretory activities by clearing out the subtle and gross body channels. Guggul was traditionally used to help with inflammatory conditions in hemorrhoids and fistula-in- ano.
Plumbago roses: Indian leadwort root
According to ancient Vedic texts it is a rejuvenating herb with Rechana or Laxative effect. It is known for its actions as a Deepana (appetizer) and Pachana drug (carminative). Traditionally utilized to improve digestive fire. Its hot potency is known to pacify the aggravated Vata Kapha levels in the body.
Curcuma longa: Turmeric Rhizome
This is rightly called as “Golden wonder” in Ayurveda for its numerous and unmatched qualities. The hot potency, bitter taste, and pungent after taste, enable it to have cleansing energy and a mobilizing nature. Turmeric also balances Kapha dosha thereby facilitating proper evacuation. It also balances the Pitta dosha thus ameliorates healthy enzymatic reactions and smooth digestive functions.
Emblica Officinalis: Amalaki
Amalaki is also known by the name ” The fruit of heaven” due to its extensive benefits to body, mind, and overall immunity. It has the ability to cleanse and detoxify, thereby aiding in healthy elimination. With its cool potency it cleanses excess Pitta, but because of its Prabhava (special effect), it does not hamper Agni.
Terminalia chebula: Haritaki
Haritaki is highly revered among the Ayurvedic herbs and is even called as ” The divine fruit”. It is Doshagna( balances tridoshas) and Anulomana (helps in normal bowel movements ) which eases the bowel movement and removes accumulated metabolic wastes.
Terminalia bellirica: Bibhitaki
Commonly called Bibhitaki or Aksa. Traditionally the bark and fruits were known for their ability of, Bhedanam (Eases motion), and Kruminashanana (relieves worm infestation) which make it one of the revered herbs for stomach health. The Tikta (bitter) property certifies proper digestion and encourages peristalsis. The Triphala (Amlaki, Haritaki, and Aksa) although the three medicinal plants are different in their aspects they act as a single unit to provide all the necessary assistance to perform and maintain normal metabolism. Triphala helps in maintaining a normal protective line of the gut which is quintessential because a healthy gut lays out a strong immune system.

AGGRAVATED DOSHAS AND AGNI
Agni, due to its impairment results in low digestive reactions of even easily digestible foods. This inturn results in an Ama condition that causes improper metabolism and blockage of minute channels of the body . Dull eyes, frequent fatigue, weight loss, pricking pain in a different part of the body indicate the presence of Ama in your body. This Ama in combination with any of the vitiated doshas results in obstruction of passages and leads to digestive as well as excretory disorders. A low digestive fire not only affects your normal digestive function but also badly affects your cognitive functions , leading to a lack of enthusiasm, energy, giddiness, etc. If you notice any of the above-mentioned symptoms in your daily life, wait not, it is assured that your body needs attention. It is always better and safer to choose a natural health supplement that pledges you its quality and quantity.
IMPORTANCE OF PROPER ELIMINATION
Living body is an admixture of tissues and wastes. The imbalance in both will in turn hold the physiological activities at stake. The metabolic wastes formed in the body need to be excreted properly as it goes by the statement, ‘ What goes in must come out.! ‘ The Tridoshic dominancy and constitution of the body is different according to each individual so are the digestive potential and excretory function too! The excretory system and formation of digestive wastes play an important role in maintaining the equilibrium and health of the body.
APANA VAYU AND EXCRETORY PROCESS
Apana Vayu exerts ‘ one at a time ‘ mastery over each of the six faculties for micturition, defecation, the passage of flatus, sexual urge, menstruation, and parturition. Expulsion of materials from the lower part of the trunk through orifices are functions of Apana Vata. When it comes to Malas or metabolic wastes formed in the body, they are to be excreted through their respective Malavaha srotas for healthy well being.
It’s time you take out some time to assess how healthy your appetite and metabolic functions.
