Sarve ragā mal-āśrayāh. Unclean bowels are the breeding ground of all diseases.

An axiom from ayurveda, as written in the 1970s book Yoga by Dhirendra Brahmachari. Furthermore, adds Tiwariji, constipation throws off your pulse and is “an obstacle in the path of pranayama.” The pressure waste matter creates inside the intestines blocks the flow of pranic energy. Therefore, everything must be done to clear the bowels.
