If you suffer from Hemorrhoids, Constipation, Pelvic Floor Issues and Colon Disease, as many people do, the squatty potty is a good solution to help you poop.
When we have a bowel movement just sitting on the toilet, our position doesn’t help us loosen the puborectalis. The puborectalis muscle choked the rectum, then it’s not easy to empty your bowels completely.
But if we come into a squatting position (getting this position by placing our feet on a squatty potty to raise the knees higher than our hips), the puborectalis muscle is relaxed and the rectum is straight to allow poo to pass more easily. This help your #2 easier and more comfortable.
