Humans have been squatting to poo since the beginning of time. Even with the invention of the modern toilet, it is still quite common in many countries to poo in a squatting position. And I'm not talking third-world countries either. Developed countries like Japan, China, Greece, Russia and France use squat toilets. Even though I've never had the privilege of travelling overseas I've heard the hilarious stories of Americans staring down into one of these low-lying toilets, scratching their heads wondering what the heck to do next. It may look and feel odd, but those folks are on to something.
Yes, the modern day toilet is very convenient, but it has one major fault; it requires us to sit.
Um, ok. What's wrong with sitting? You ask.
While sitting to do the do may be considered more “civilized”, studies show the natural squat position improves our ability to eliminate. Better elimination may decrease many ailments like bloating, straining, hemorrhoids and constipation.
All these problems, and more, can be helped with the use of the Squatty Potty. This innovative toilet stool is easy to use and highly effective in positioning the colon for effortless bowel movements.
How does it work?
Humans are designed to squat to poop. The colon has a natural kink that helps maintain continence (or your ability to hold it in). Sitting on the toilet only partially relaxes the tight muscle around the colon and blocks the flow of waste. Proper pooping posture fully relaxes that muscle, allowing the colon to empty quickly and completely.
How about a demonstration? Er... well - it's not what you think. Just watch the video.
