Are You Pooping Correctly?

The natural squat position improves our ability to eliminate.

We have been advocating squatting for years, since better elimination may decrease many modern day ailments including bloating, straining, hemorrhoids and constipation.

In the squatting posture, the muscles relaxes allowing the bend of your body to straighten out resulting in easier defecation. Squatting is the natural way to achieve easier and a complete elimination. Research shows that squatting relieves the kink effect. Also, the pressure of thigh muscles against the lower abdomen helps with exertion and elimination.

The Squatty Potty is  a simple little contraption, essentially a step stool, costing between $24.99 (for white plastic) and $74.99 (for the bamboo version), that slides against the base of a toilet. You place both feet on the platform and your knees are pushed above your hips, creating a natural squatting position. It's how people used to use the bathroom before the invention of the modern toilet, back when we were still doing our business in the woods or any open hole with a modicum of privacy.
