feces

[′fē·sēz]
(physiology)
The waste material eliminated by the gastrointestinal tract.

Feces

 

excrement, the contents of the lower section of the large intestine, discharged during defecation. In man and the majority of animals, feces are of solid consistency as a result of water absorption in the large intestines. Feces consist of undigested remains of food, mucoid intestinal juice, epithelial cells (which are constantly desquamating from the interior surface of the intestinal tract), and microorganisms of the intestinal flora (mainly Escherichia coli). Testing of feces has diagnostic value: blood and pus (when ulcers or hemorrhoids are present), worms and their ova, and the causative agents of dysentery, typhoid fever, or cholera may be found.

Feces

(dreams)
Dreams containing feces may be odd but they are not uncommon. Feces represent those things that you no longer need, things that are currently garbage or waste and need to be discarded. This dream may represent healthy psychological progress. It may indicate that you are cleansing yourself of unnecessary and possibly hurtful attitudes, ideas, and emotions. At times, and depending on the details of the dream, feces could represent a contaminated area of your life, mind, or spirit. Look at the details and consider if the image of feces is in regard to something that you have been trying to clean or if it brings up stress provoking thoughts, confusion, and difficult and unresolved areas of your life. In some cultures people believe that if you are dreaming about feces you will soon prosper financially. (Feces in the dream mean money in the hand.)
