ARE YOU POOPING THE RIGHT WAY?

Nothing to be ashamed about here.  We all do it!  Chances are, however, you’re not doing it the right way.  I’ve been using the Squatty Potty for a few years now, and I’m telling you it’s was a GAME CHANGER!  Sorry to be so excited about poop, but digestion really is my passion!

This viral video is pretty amazing and explains how the Squatty Potty works:

 

 

Do you ever notice when diaper-wearing toddlers poop, they squat down, butt to the ground?  Human are designed to squat!

Research shows that the squatting position is much more natural and can help avoid constipation, bloating, hemorrhoids, colon disease, and pelvic floor issues.

Here’s why.  When we sit, a kink is created in the colon, blocking the flow of waste and making it more difficult for feces to be released.  This can cause straining and just general uncomfortableness.  When you squat, the kink is removed, making elimination easier and more complete.  Sounds better to me!  The Squatty Potty helps mimic the squat position by elevating your knees.

 

Our modern toilets and improper elimination position can cause problems we weren’t even aware of, such as:

CONSTIPATION

I see so many clients who are constipated, and many of them don’t even know it.  If you’re not having a complete elimination at least once a day, sorry to break it to you, but you’re constipated!  Ideally you should be going more than once a day!  Having proper elimination begins with drinking enough water and eating a good amount of fiber, and it ends with the correct elimination position.  If you’re looking for a bit more support on digestion and gut health, let’s schedule a consultation!

HEMORRHOIDS

One of the causes of hemorrhoids is straining during elimination.  Don’t let this be you!

COLON DISEASE

Maintaining good colon health comes down to eliminately regularly and completely.  If there is buildup in the colon, it can lead to colon disease.  Not only that, but having old fecal matter in your intestines is definitely not going to leave you feeling very happy and energized.

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS

Being in a squat position not only helps complete emptying from your colon, but it also helps complete emptying of your bladder!  This can help you avoid bladder infections.

 

MY EXPERIENCE

The reason I’m so passionate about gut health and digestion is because it is something I have struggled with for a long time.  Bloating, gas, and constipation were all a part of my daily life.   When I started using the Squatty Potty I noticed an immediate difference in my elimination.  I was way less bloated, and I felt great!

I used to use a box I’d set under my feet, which works fine, but I find the Squatty Potty to be way more comfortable and it even stores away nicely!  They have a range of styles and heights, so I’m sure you can find one that works for you.  I prefer the wood one, because it’s height is adjustable and it’s aesthetically pleasing.  I even have a portable one, that I take with me whenever I travel!  Honestly, now it feels unnatural NOT to use one.  It’s a great gift, too!  I’m getting everyone in my family one for the holidays this year.  Sorry, family.  But you’ll thank me later!

So, unless you’re going to redesign and install a new, more functional toilet, you need to get yourself a Squatty Potty.  I guarantee you will be so surprised at what a difference it makes!

 

Thoughts?  Have you tried the Squatty Potty?  Interested in trying in now?  Or was this too much poop talk for you?
