3 Things you Should Know to Improve your Bathroom Experience

If you're like most people, your bathroom breaks are more problematic than you think.

Sure, it feels good to relax on the porcelain throne, but the habit of sitting can lead to some sinister health consequences for your whole body. Thankfully, there's an easy solution.

Intrigued? Then read on. 

1. The Problem With Your Toilet

The problem comes from the posture. When you sit down on a regular toilet, your colon is kinked, just like a garden hose. With enough straining, fecal material can still be forced through, but you'll be sure to feel the effort, and the odds of you getting all the poo out of your body are slim to none.

It should come as no surprise that this often leads to a long line of chronic health problems. Below are some of the most common. 

Constipation

No one likes straining on the toilet seat, but for millions of Americans, it's an unfortunate daily ritual. Chronic constipation can cause you hemorrhoids, anal fissures and worse.

No matter how hard you try to go, your constipation will only cause you grief if you try to relieve it on a regular toilet. Worse yet, often times it's the cause of your suffering. Without releasing the kink in your colon caused from sitting, your poo is going to continue to get jammed up inside you.

Hemorrhoids

No one wants to suffer from swollen, inflamed veins in the anus, but for over half of Americans over the age of 50, it's a sad reality. Sitting on a toilet only worsens the problem, as the angle you sit at puts too much pressure on your rectum, keeping feces trapped inside. The only way to get them out is to strain harder, which stretches out the veins of your anus until you've accidentally given yourself an uncomfortable hemorrhoid.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction 

The pelvic is essentially all that keeps your bladder, rectum and reproductive organs in place, and you'll certainly notice when something goes awry. Over one quarter of woman experience pelvic floor complications, and many researchers believe that the posture of sitting on a toilet is partly to blame.

Urinary Infections

An all too common medical ailment for most women, urinary infections lead to itching and burning in the places you can't easily scratch. A too full colon is sometimes responsible for the pain, as it can transfer toxic bacteria to the urethra, where it then lands in the bladder and causes you grief.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Chronic indigestion and abdominal pain is never pleasant, but for the sufferers of IBS, it's hardly unusual. This chronic condition can lead to severe cases of constipation, making every moment on the toilet a strain. 

Colon disease

There are lots of probable causes for colon disease, but most experts agree that fecal buildup is partly to blame. The sitting posture with kinked colon can be a big contributor to that.

Fecal stagnation

Clearly, there's a lot at stake from not pooping properly. Before you fret, read on. There may be a simple and easy solution that can help, and worth your consideration.

2. It's Time to Squat, Not Sit

There's no need to despair about the state of your bowels. In truth, there may be an easy solution to all your bathroom woes that humans have relied on throughout history: squatting.  Strange but true, squatting is actually the optimal posture when relieving yourself.

Finding the claims of squatting too good to be true? Simply take a look at the bathroom practices of non-western countries and you'll see that billions of people squat to poo every single day. Not only do these countries have fewer cases of bowel disease, they also are known for having larger bowel movements every time they go, meaning each bathroom visit is more efficient and cleansing for their colon than you're used to.  Best of all, fully emptying your poo prevents it from stagnating in your body and concentrating toxins in your intestinal tract. Your poop is classified as waste to your body for a reason, so do what you can to help it get out of there!

By design, the squatting posture perfectly aligns your rectum, ensuring your bowel movements are streamlined and simple. Gravity does all the work, as the weight of your torso will press against your colon, naturally compressing it till empty. You'll simply feel better, even lighter, getting everything out of your body in one go. Constipation relief, hemorrhoid prevention and even relief from IBS can all be had, simply from switching from sitting to squatting.

If you want to make a small change upfront that makes a big difference for the health of your rear, take the time to get your squats in before you get on the toilet and you'll be sure to have a better experience.
