Waking up at sunrise is essential as the body begins to synchronise
itself with the rhythm of the sun, says Ashwiniji

Ayurveda prescribes a daily routine called the Dincharya to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The Dincharya balances the Tridoshas —Vata, Pita and Kapha which are also known as the stambhas (pillars) of life. The three upstambhs (stambh supporters ) which support the three pillars are: Ahar (food) Nidra (sleep) Brahmcharya (celibacy) A healthy routine balances the three upstambhs. Waking up at sunrise is essential as the body begins to synchronise itself with the rhythm of the sun. The sun is the source of certain very vital pranas and is a must for the process of life to go on. Bowels should be cleared as soon as you wake up to avoid a build up of toxins in the body. If you are not able to do so, have two glasses of hot water and sit on the toilet. Do not apply pressure even if there is no bowel movement as the purpose is to align the apana vayu with the rhythms of the universe vis a vis the individual’s body. After a few days of this exercise the bowels will move.

The last part of the night is ruled by vata which is responsible for elimination and that makes it all the more important to pass stool upon waking up in the morning. Observe your urine and stool every morning to get an early indication of impending diseases. If the urine is dark yellow and continues to be for more than three days at a stretch then it is indicative of rise in pitta and pitta related diseases. The same goes for stool if it has a blackish pigment. Immediate medical intervention is advised if these symptoms are observed for more than three days at a stretch. A healthy stool should float in water; if it sinks then it indicates accumulation of toxins (ama) in the body.
