In an earlier article by Dr Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee, it has been mentioned as regards the second scenario that “The waste material resulting from the food eaten in the previous morning is pushed forward and gets deposited in the rectum and colon by the next morning.
On the other hand, the waste material resulting from the food eaten in the evening may still be in transition and may not have reached the rectum and colon by the next morning.”
Further, a person who passes out the excreta twice each day, morning and evening, doesn’t have the problem of the waste material being ‘still in transition’. By this logic, even ‘the waste material resulting from the food eaten in the evening’ mentioned in the preceding paragraph must not still be in transition and instead should have made its way into the rectum and colon by the next morning!
But, this doesn’t happen in the second scenario.
There are many reasons.
First, the nervous system of the person who begins passing out the stool only once a day conveys the message of going slow to the intestinal muscles. The initial involuntary action that is responsible for pushing forward the waste material further down the small intestines into the large intestines, rectum and colon becomes weaker.
Second, the waste material resulting from the food eaten in the previous morning which is pushed forward by the involuntary action of the intestinal muscles starts producing gases when it isn’t allowed to be flushed out of the rectum and colon by previous evening.
The gas finds its way out of the anus in the form of what we call the Farting. Simultaneously, some amount of it is pushed up backwards in the intestines.
Some part of this retreating gas mixes with other gases in the stomach and comes out of the mouth very often as an odourless Belching.
The retreating gas either blocks or slows down the further movement of the waste material resulting from the food eaten in the previous evening. This results into the waste material resulting from the food eaten in the previous evening being still in transition in the intestines the following day.
