In the 14th century, the deposits of human feces found in our intestinal bacteria contain living growth of antibiotics before humans developed drugs such as penicillin.
Our intestines contain live friendly bacteria that provide a protective layer and work with antibiotics to fight against new microbes. The bacteria that live in your gut are known as the microbiome that is stronger than antibiotics.
Ayurveda makes a point that feces is a tool that shows your health condition. Passing stool is a way to eliminate the toxins and waste from the body to maintain good health. Feces is one of the root causes of supporting normal functioning of the body.
According to Ayurveda, the stools require a certain amount of time to form and excrete from the body in a certain quantity. A normal functioning digestion system must include the formation of stool and its elimination. There are consequences when waste materials are stagnated in the body that will cause constipation.
While diarrhea is more dangerous than constipation because of the loss of feces all at once from the colon. Tuberculosis stool is the ingested food converted into stools and they are the only source of strength that supports the body’s overall functioning.
In the fourth century, 1700 years ago, the medical field of China used fecal matter (fresh fecal suspension or dry feces) with a total of 54 fecal medicines that were found to be used in 14 traditional Chinese medical systems. These fecal medicines were commonly used to treat the gastrointestinal, nervous system, skin, and gynecologically diseases. 3 types of fecal medicines are commonly used, which are Wu-Ling-Zhi, Jiu-Fen, and Han-Bing -Pian. These fecal medicines found to be effective in treating amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, dyspepsia, diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. Moreover, fecal medicine has anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, and antioxidant effects. Yellow soup is one of the scientific traditional feces medicines that can treat food poisoning, severe diarrhea, heat toxins, and high fever. Yellow soup is a chemical waste in feces that is mainly derived from the host or dietary metabolites, the key active constituents of fecal medical materials.
In 1997, the stool form scale was known as a measuring tool to classify and identify the changes in intestinal function. The description of the Bristol stool form scale was published in 1990. In 1998, Stephen Lewis and Ken Heaten from the University of Bristol developed a seven-point stool form scale, ranging from constipation (type 1) to diarrhea (type 7). In 1999, the first “proper” publication of the visual chart with the description of the scale was published in a booklet for the public.

In the early 20th century, the famous Russian scientist, winner of the Nobel Prize, Ilya Mechnikov (1845-1916), worked at Pasteur Institute, Paris. Research on the causes of human aging. He found that during feeding the protein content in food is reduced by the action of the breakdown of intestine bacteria that cause poisoning of the body and early death. He proves that the only food that could restrict the development of breakdown bacteria in the intestines is the Bulgarian yoghurt, which is explained for the largest number of healthy centenarians in Bulgaria.
During the biological research of Ilya Mechnikov, the Bulgarian doctor, Mr. Stamen Grigorov, a student of medicine in his fourth academic year at Geneva University, undertook research on Bulgarian yogurt and found that the cause of fermentation.
Yogurt is known as a fermented milk product that contains digested lactose and it is specifically made from viable bacterial strains, typically Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. It gives the results of health benefits of yogurt since 20th century. In 1905, a Bulgarian medical student was the first to discover Bacillus bulgaricus, a lactic acid bacterium that is still used in yogurt cultures today.
In Bulgaria, yogurt is everywhere. It is the basis of traditional Bulgarian food that will use in every dish. According to Bulgarians, yogurt was discovered around 4,000 years ago by Nomadic tribes who wandered the land. A mildly sour-tasting yogurt (kiselo mlyako) is undoubtedly the best and the healthiest of all dairy products that are available to consumers nowadays. The western world calls it Bulgarian yogurt but, in its homeland, Bulgaria, it’s called sour milk. According to the Nomad century, nomadic used to carry milk in pouches made of animal skins. Milk in animal skins is the place where the bacteria are prone to grow due to body heat produced on the animal skins which ferment the milk to produce yogurt. Yogurt is known as a fermented milk product that provides digested lactose and is specifically made from viable bacterial strains, typically Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. It was continuously shown that the results of health benefits of yogurt even after the 20th century. In 1905, a Bulgarian medical student was the first to discover Bacillus bulgaricus, a lactic acid bacterium that is still used in yogurt cultures today.
