Your gut health matters in Ayurveda

Koshtha is nature of our alimentary canal or nature of our bowels ,
When Vata is predominant in your koshtha, the bowel movement is क्रूर:or hard, with difficulty in elimination and irregularity in clearing
When Pitta is predominant in your Kosh tha , the bowel movement is मृदु (mridu) or soft , that is soft and semi-solid faeces is eliminated more than once a day , even drinking of milk clears the bowel
When Kapha is predominant, the koshtha is मध्य (madhyam) the bowel movement is moderate , faeces is well formed , regulated (once a day)
सम (sama) is the ideal condition , which maintains gut health , which is like madhyam , regulated elimination of well formed faeces , which is the normal conditioning of the body, any imbalance in the sama will  lead to imbalance in koshtha , leading to ill-health in the body
In which category does your Koshtha falls?
