Sorry if I offend anyone with this post, but having lived with Crohn's disease my whole life, I thought I needed to share this.

Sitting unnatural

The unnatural sitting position for using the toilet has become the norm in western society only during the last 160 years, since the non-ergonomic sit-down toilet was invented. Victorian attitudes towards ‘toilet issues’ are as old as the ‘throne’ itself and get in the way of preventing disease.

Seven Advantages of Squatting

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

If someone takes offense oh well...Its bad thing to live with Crohns, Ibd, etc...

Most best info comes from the person who has it, not Dr's and reseachers. Thank you..

The things we do not mention! But not offensive.

This is still true in many other cultures. I encountered squat toilets when traveling abroad.
Not mention bidets--which I also encountered.

So sorry that you suffer from Crohn's and I wish you nothing but good health. (Sending you a hug, too.)

You go girl!!!
I have colitis and IBS and was told I was dying at 18 yrs. old...but I survived and still suffer, but bete than the other!
My Mom has a colostomy from rectal cancer so I am at risk, too.
If people can't handle something natueal to allbeings, shame on them...
hey, is there is a restroom nearby...he he, at least I can laugh,what else is there!!!

That's an interesting stool (I know what came to mind) uh-sorry...I have no other way to describe it? Toilet stool that's better:)

I've heard of this before Kim. I suffer from hemorrhoids, and bleeding & have colon cancer in the family. My mom has it, and my uncle just died from it, so to me information is power to fight back. Only ignorance will turn it's nose up at the opportunity to learn.

I think we should all be open to new things. Coming from a family with a strong history of Colon Cancer, this was very interesting!

Take care,
