Making The Switch From Sitting To Squatting...

If you want to switch from sitting to squatting for waste elimination, there are four ways you can do it. But squat while you still can...

The old proverb "use it or lose it" applies to the muscles and bone structures in the feet (squatting facets) that make squatting possible.

If you have been using sitting toilets all your life, it will require some time and practice before you can squat easily and comfortably again.

The inability to squat can be attributed to the long-term use of sitting toilets. A recent study shows the extent of the problem...

In 2004, Professor Ajay Rane from James Cook University did a study to find the perfect way for one million Australians -- including 300,000 men -- who have weak bladders to pee.

But in the course of the research study, Professor Ajay Rane found that one in three volunteers were falling off the toilets because they couldn't hold a squat position for more than 30 seconds:

"We are quite sure squatting would be far superior to the Western toilet position. However, we have a problem now ... one third of the (Australian) population is unable to squat..."

There is good reason why you should switch from sitting to squatting for your bowel movements. If you persist in using sitting toilets, you'll never be able to empty your colon completely even if you strain and 'push'. Besides, your risk of suffering from colon, bladder, pelvic and prostate problems would increase.

In a society where sitting toilets are the norm, there are, practically speaking, only four possible options available to one who wants to switch from sitting to squatting for waste elimination:

  1. Install a new squatting toilet

  2. squatting toilet

  3. Replace one of your sitting toilets with a squat type

  4. Construct a metal platform like this aluminium frame over your sitting toilet

  5. Use a toilet squatting platform

Squatting on top of a sitting toilet is not an option. It is risky and dangerous.

Whichever option you choose, one thing's is sure...

There are few other things in life, that with so little effort required on your part, could have such a profound and positive impact on your health.

Just by deciding to switch from sitting to squatting for your bowel movements, you could prolong and greatly improve your health and quality of life.

You will find it so much easy and comfortable it is to empty your bowels. Moreover, you would also protect yourself against the many serious colon, bladder, pelvic and prostate ailments which have caused so much grief, pain and suffering in the last 150 years.

Recall Professor Ajay Rane's finding that one third of Australians (Westerners) are unable to squat?

If this is the case for you, it is possible for you to regain the ability to squat again. Start by making squatting a part of every day activities, such as in picking things up, talking to small children or reaching out to low cupboards.

It is time that more people should be aware of and learn the truth about sitting toilets, and switch from sitting to squatting, either by using a squat toilet, or if that is not possible, a toilet squatting platform or converter.
