While defecating, the concept of squatting is not new. When travelling you must have noticed the toilets designed for this purpose. It is generally considered as an outdated toilet, and you must have questioned “why would anyone use this?”

If we dig a little deeper we will understand that there is a bend in our digestive tracts between the rectum and anus in an upright position, which stops us from pooping. It is similar to a bend in a garden hose that stops the flow of water. When sitting on the toilet seat, with knees at a right angle, our puborectalis muscle (the muscle responsible for continence) relaxes only partially. In this position a bend called anorectal angle is curled which reverts back the pressure on rectum and keeps the faeces inside. This creates the need of force to eliminate faeces.

After research, experts suggest that the squat position straightens the bend which makes it the natural way to achieve easier and more complete elimination of faeces and can help void constipation, haemorrhoids, colon disease and other pelvic floor issues.

In a squatting posture, people might only need one-third the time to garner a movement. Also the experience will be much easier than those who sit. To stimulate a squat, put especially designed footstool (squattypotty), at the base of the toilet which will help elevate the feet to inches off the ground and it will make your morning meditation quicker, easier and effortless.
