Who loves a good Poo? Come on! You know you do.
But who knew, squatting when we do a number 2 is healthier than sitting on our lovely comfy toilet seat? Evidence has shown, elevating the knees during our morning poo, helps the contents pass through much more easily. Sitting creates a situation where we have to force things out. Of course this causes problems like piles (haemorrhoids) and other physical health problems . Here are MY TOP 3 TIPS for better bowel health – Try them and if they work for you, please like – comment and share them around!
TIP 1 – don’t hold it in! When you need to go to the loo, just go. Holding your poo inside will create a situation where it squashes together and becomes more solid, therefore making it more difficult to pass.
TIP 2 – Put a small footstool under your feet when you sit on the loo, this makes your knees higher than your bum creating a situation where your rectum is straight. This helps things pass through a lot easier.
TIP 3 – Don’t get off the loo until your bowel feels completely empty.
