Change your bathroom habits & improve your health with clever Squattypotty.
The Western toilet was designed for comfort, but what it does to our bowels is torture. When sitting our bodies remain in contienence mode with the puburectalis muscle choking the rectum to prevent waste from exiting. This means we have to strain to get anything 'out' we're unable to completely emptying our bowel on each trip to the loo.
The amount of pressure caused by straining can cause blood vessels to expand resulting in haemorrhoids, and can gradually weaken the pelvic floor and muscles surrounding the rectum. This can ultimately lead to urinary and faecal incontinence. The effects of failing to eliminate all waste from the bowel include constipation, bloating, headaches and lethargy. What's more, faeces clogged in the bowel can cause infection and contribute to appendicitis, IBS, bowel disease and even cancer.
The human body was designed to squat to poop; it's the only position where the body comes out of contience mode and the pouborectalis muscle fully relaxes, creating an open and straight exit for waste. Squatting prevents straining and ensures more efficient elimination.
SquattyPotty is designed to lift the feet up and position the knees in the optimal position for efficient elimination so you can still sit on the toilet seat but have healthier, more complete number 2s. More advanced squatters can lean forward and raise themselves off the seat so that they are completely squatting over the loo, which is not only great for the bowel but it really tones up the bum and thighs too.
When not in use SquattyPotty slides conveniently beneath the toilet bowl. This model is 7inches high and suitable for toilets 15inches and lower.
