The Science Behind Easystool
A large percentage of us on Earth are still squatting to defecate, by placing your feet on the easystool you are assuming the natural human toilet posture while sitting on your own Loo.
So this squatting posture to go is nothing new, but what’s the science behind squatting?
When you use the easystool and put your knees up to go you change the relative angle between the pelvis and the knees (the anorectal angle), in effect squatting.
This squatting posture to defecate simultaneously closes the ileocecal valve, pressurising the colon to defecate and relaxes the outlet valve (puborectalis muscle) unkinking the Colon and so with little effort and gravity allows the waste to pass freely.
Sitting on the toilet with our legs at 90 degrees, doesn’t fully close the ileocecal valve and constricts the outlet valve (puborectalis muscle) from being fully open, kinking it and therefore more force is needed by straining to eliminate.
If you are suffering from constipation or haemorrhoids or Pelvic floor issues, the easystool and a small modification in behaviour can alleviate you ailments.
Even if you have no issues, doesn’t it make sense to go as nature intended….with your knees up!
