This one move improves your bowel movements

Dear Reader, 

Unless you’re already doing this one move, you’re going to the bathroom wrong.

It’s a bit awkward to talk about, but let’s face it: many of us experience constipation. In fact, as many as one in six Americans deal with chronic constipation.1

And the solution may not be another medication or a daily glass of prune juice.

Instead, it’s likely that you’re just sitting on the toilet wrong.

See, before the invention of the toilet and modern plumbing, people used to... well, squat to do their business.

As unpleasant as that sounds, it’s actually the way our bodies are naturally supposed to use the bathroom.

The final stage of your lower intestine is kinked when you don’t need to use the bathroom.

When you’re ready to go, the kink begins to straighten out due to the relaxing of the muscles.

But for the kink to fully straighten out, you have to squat.

And the problem is that most toilets are the height of a chair. This means you don’t sit in the squatting position that straightens out the kink.

So then you’re left struggling to use the bathroom.

What’s the solution?

A toilet stool. No, not that kind of stool — we’re talking about a footstool for your toilet.

By elevating your feet while on the toilet, your body is put into a squat position that helps straighten out the kink.

You may have even heard of the Squatty Potty in a silly ad on TV or a social media platform (the one with the unicorn pooping ice cream).2

The Squatty Potty is a sturdy footstool that fits under the toilet for easy squatting.

Of course, you don’t need a special footstool to squat — any old footstool should do the trick. But the Squatty Potty does make the job a whole lot easier.

The question is, does it actually work?

Well, one doctor at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center was skeptical. So he put together a test to see if it really works or if it’s just false advertising.

About a third of the participants in the study had issues with emptying their bowels.

However, after just one month of using the Squatty Potty, 90% of participants said they strained less when using the bathroom, and 71% reported quicker bowel movements.

The study concluded that being in a squatting position did indeed help symptoms such as constipation, fissures, hemorrhoids, and general bowel movement difficulties.

Using a Squatty Potty (or another similar footstool) may be the absolute easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to regulate bowel movements.

Plus, there are no side effects or risks — unlike with most pharmaceutical drugs that assist with bowel movements.

In fact, Dr. Springer with the American Board of Emergency Medicine says that a toilet footstool is one of the “most effective, safe, non-medicinal tools that exist for many common medical ailments.”

So next time doody calls, bring along a footstool.

To your health,
