Did You Know You Should “Squat on the Pot”?
It’s funny to think about the different customs in the different cultures. When one has been taught differently than another, it’s easy to look at someone else and think they’re crazy. For instance, did you know that in both India and China and well 2/3 of the world’s population, they squat over a hole in the floor to eliminate their bowels? That sounds crazy! Clearly THEY are the uncivilized ones. Right?
…Wrong! Dead wrong, in fact.
Truth be told, the body was made to squat in order to eliminate. Our “civilized” ways are actually to blame for the majority of hemorrhoids! So are you looking for a treatment for hemorrhoids? Chances are that a contributing factor that put you in your current situation is your bathroom habits of “sitting in a civilized manor on the pot.” Really, this is damaging and puts a great deal of strain on the anal veins and leads to – you guessed it – internal hemorrhoids.
Now who’s the crazy one?
Seriously, you may not believe me but it’s science. The human body was created in such a way that in order to adequately stretch the muscles out of the way and properly open up the anal sphincter, you’ve got to squat and not sit. The same is true for delivery. Have you ever watched a toddler who has not yet been potty trained to go to the bathroom? Have you ever seen him do it in his pants? Without fail, they ALWAYS squat, until taught otherwise by us and our ignorant culture! The fact of the matter is that squatting to eliminate can practically eliminate hemorrhoids in any area of the world and it has, too. So what should you do to get rid of internal hemorrhoids? Take a squat on the pot and let go of your preconceived notions about the “civilized way to eliminate.”
