Seven Advantages of Squatting

1. Makes elimination faster, easier and more complete. This helps prevent "fecal stagnation," a prime factor in colon cancer, appendicitis and inflammatory bowel disease.

2. Protects the nerves that control the prostate, bladder and uterus from becoming stretched and damaged.

3. Securely seals the ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine. In the conventional sitting position, this valve is unsupported and often leaks during evacuation, contaminating the small intestine.

4. Relaxes the puborectalis muscle which normally chokes the rectum in order to maintain continence.

5. Uses the thighs to support the colon and prevent straining. Chronic straining on the toilet can cause hernias, diverticulosis, and pelvic organ prolapse.

6. A highly effective, non-invasive treatment for hemorrhoids, as shown by published clinical research.

7. For pregnant women, squatting avoids pressure on the uterus when using the toilet. Daily squatting helps prepare one for a more natural delivery.

Have you tried it? Give us some feedback, Kayta.

I'll be honest I actually tried it once when I had to use the restroom in a bar man....Some nastiest seats you've ever seen so I dropped my pants climbed up and went....I would say its a little different if you've sat on the can for a while but It was definately faster getting out...though I'm not sure if it was position as much as stench bro.

Yeah, I have this thing about public toilets...I refuse to sit on them. I've squatted before and it came out quick and easy.
