Have you ever thought about how your toilet habits can affect your body?
Sometimes the comforts and luxuries of modern life go against the human body’s natural design and can have significant effects on our health. The way we use the loo is the perfect example; many of us couldn’t imagine what damage we could be doing to ourselves by sitting down for a number two. The truth is, humans are anatomically designed to squat, just like other animals, and since the prevalence of the modern sit-down toilet we’ve been causing ourselves serious health problems.
OK, its something we don't usually talk about, but if you can't 'go' it makes you miserable!
The muscles surrounding our rectum control whether our bodies are in continence or elimination mode - basically whether we poo or not.
When sitting down the anorectal angle is kinked and the puborectalis muscle chokes the rectum, keeping faeces inside. It is only when we squat, lifting our knees higher than our hips, that the anorectal angle is straightened and the puborectalis muscle releases the rectum, allowing complete defecation.
So, sitting on the loo keeps our bodies in continence mode and makes it difficult to eliminate waste. We therefore strain, which puts pressure on the muscles and blood vessels. This pressure can lead to painful haemorrhoids, and since the pelvic floor comes under a lot of stress it can lead to bladder weakness too. Plus, if we do not completely eliminate all faeces some will remain in the bowel, which can cause constipation and even lead to bowel disease and appendicitis.
With a SquattyPotty toilet stool your bowel will empty more effectively, more easily and more fully! No straining, pushing or laxatives - just as nature intended
SquattyPotty is a simple but effective aid that helps you to achieve the optimal squatting position when using the loo. It raises your knees upwards so that you can lean forward and gently press your abdomen onto your thighs. Your rectal muscles will go into elimination mode and you will experience a complete and healthy bowel movement without excessive straining.
An independent study by the Ohio State University proved the efficacy of using a toilet stool. Of the healthy adult participants, 71% of them reported a noticeable reduction in the time they spent on the toilet, with an incredible 90% saying they experienced a noticeable reduction in the need to strain.
Designed to be stored neatly underneath the toilet set bowl, the SquattyPotty has been specially engineered so that your knees are at a 35ᵒ angle from your hips, the perfect squatting position. The health benefits of squatting to defecate are numerous, and whether you have a specific problem you want to tackle or just want to generally improve your bowel heath, the SquattyPotty will help.
More complete bowel movements eliminate bloating and help your body to absorb all the essential nutrients from your food so that you feel healthier and full of energy. Those who suffer from severe, regular constipation will find relief and help to prevent further build-ups. Haemorrhoids will be reduced and prevented, and those with bowel disease will find using the toilet far less painful. Pregnant women will experience relief too as the squatting position avoids pressure on the uterus and helps to prepare the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles for a natural delivery.
So what size of Squatty Potty do you need to buy today - so you'll feel better tomorrow?
With SquattyPotty you can have the comfort of a sit-down toilet with the health benefits of the squatting position. The Ecco model is a simple, sleek white design that compliments any bathroom, constructed from durable, easy-clean plastic. It’s available in two different sizes, 7 inches and 9 inches high. Choose the one that is right for your toilet; usually toilets 14-15 inches high are low enough for the smaller 7 inch SquattyPotty, and taller toilets over 16 inches are better suited for the 9 inch model. Measure your toilet from floor to bowl with seat lifted up to determine its height.
Once you’ve tried SquattyPotty you’ll wonder how you ever managed to go to the loo before. Get one for each bathroom and the whole family will feel the benefits of a more natural number two!
