I ended up purchasing something called a Squatty Potty. The name alone had sent fears through my nerves, but looking back, it was the single greatest change for my health at that time. Sure, eating better, more fiber, more greens, and intaking more water helps a ton, but if you’re physically doing something wrong, all of that won’t matter. Keep reading as I’ll better explain what I mean…
For starters, Squatty Potty is a company that specializes in stools that sit below your toilet, which allow you the ability to prop your feet up in a healthier position. We, humans, haven’t always used toilets to relieve ourselves, relying mainly on the positive affects of squatting. If you’ve ever camped in the woods and had to go out there, squatting is probably what you did to make things move easily. Because, when you squat, your body aligns better and your movements will flow easier. When you sit on a toilet, you suffer long and painful movements, because you’re sitting in the wrong position, essentially blocking the proper alignment required from our bodies. Through evolution, we may see a change in how our bodies react to our modern toilets, but for now, squatting is the best remedy for a myriad of bathroom-related issues.
