But this is not the right way to go at it. A better way is outlined above; simply wait until the desire is irresistible; then the inner sphincter is sure to be relaxed and the peristaltic movement sufficient to move the contents out without using ab dominal pressure. Another, and perhaps, opposite method of securing the desired result is to obtain a general relaxation of the body, which will secondarily or sympathetically aflect the involuntary muscles. This is explained in another part, under the title of Rest. A method frequently advised is the use of massage over the abdomen, by manipulation with the hands, or rolling a cannon ball over the location of the colon, or bringing the abdomen forcibly against some object, as a strap between two posts. All these are unnatural procedures, and while possibly useful temporarily, in some cases, they never tend to produce a cure, but instead, further weaken the intestinal muscles by usurping their functions. As contrasted with passive exercise, active exercise is far better. Exercise of any part of the body makes deeper breathing necessary, and that means more up and down action of the diaphragm, which in turn produces more movements of the abdominal contents. More oxygen enters the blood, and more blood circulates through the vessels everywhere, stimulating all the muscles.
