Our ancient cavemen ancestors had a different relationship with everything in their environment than we do. They had a different relationship with their food, their environment and even the way they released waste. They caught or picked their own food and were highly sensitive to their surroundings knowing that they could become prey at any given moment. They took a bowel movements or urinated in the great outdoors! (ahh, always a more refreshing way to do it right?) Well, there’s something interesting about how they took a bowel movement. They didn’t do what we do today, walk into the bathroom, switch on the light, lift the toilet seat… sit down and handle business. They found a little area that was private (I’d hope at least?), squatted down holding themselves up (not sitting), and released their waste.
Now take a look at all of the digestive issues in America:
Squatting was a normal occurrence for our ancient ancestors. This is and was the way to do it. In our modernized society though man (in all of our brilliance) created a toilet that gives us the ability to sit at a 90 degree angle and sit there while doing it. This is not the way for us to release a bowel movement though! This is not the way that nature intended. The proper way is to squat and have your posture in a squatting position more at a 45 degree angle.
Here’s a visual example:
I personally use a squatty potty myself and am very pleased with it. It makes going number 2 as easy as going #1 (as some people say). It’s mimicking the way nature intended us to go and you feel better after. I have noticed my bowel movements are larger by using the squatty potty overall which is a very good thing because that means less fecal matter sits in your Colon. You don’t want that! It will lead to constipation, colon disease and a variety of other health issues.
They offer three different sizes and this is an investment in your health that lasts for life because you get to use the squatty potty every single day. The cheapest option is just 25 bucks and that benefits your colon health and your feelings of less constipation for years to come.

Thanks for reading and good luck squatting! I know that this has helped me personally and I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about long-term colon health.
