Squat like your ancestors for a healthier bowel!

I worked in Tanzania as a primary school teacher for a while, and one of the many things I loved about my experience in the foothills of Kilimanjaro was the drop hole toilet! No joke! I know most people love the comfort of a western toilet, but I prefer to squat! I think the position is so much natural and the bowel feels like it's being emptied more effectively (and this has been proven to be the case)... after all, we have not evolved to sit up right on a toilet at 90 degrees! So I was thinking about having a porcelain squat toilet installed in the house (much to my husband's disapproval!) when I discovered the joy of a squatty potty. You put it under your feet whilst on the loo, and it effectively (near enough) puts your body in a squat position! I absolutely swear by it! You can buy one for £13.99 from here, or alternatively use anything to put your feet on that lifts them up by around 9 inches, perhaps a box or a kids step etc. It's also proven to help with irritable bowel, irritable bladder, constipation, bloating and haemorrhoids. Why not give it a try! x
