Are you pooping the right way?

Some scientists have concluded that modern-day toilets, like the water closet system, are bad for our system. The reason is that when you sit on the bathroom throne (toilet seat), your body is in an “abnormal” position. This normal, conventional position is known as anorectal angle, positioning our rectum in such a way that it makes pooping difficult.

The squatting position puts no stress at all on the rectum. It is a more “normal” position for the body system than the conventional pooping position because there is no strain on the puborectal muscles at all. This makes the whole process of pooping easier, the flow is without restriction. Squatting position also helps prevent haemorrhoids and other tract infections. It gives an optimal experience when pooping – lesser time and effort.

It seems as though the ancient cavemen understood this better as all they did was get a secluded portion of an area they lived in (outdoor), squatted and did their thing. No wonder they had less of the ailments that affect people today. It is no doubt that their natural way of doing things from their diet to their pooping has a role to play in the longevity they enjoyed.


So yeah, there is no going back to the cave days. We can, however, learn from their system and modify ours.
For instance, you don’t need to ditch your water closet and look for a nearby secluded bush (which you probably won’t find in modern Nigeria). You can use a small stool just to prop up your knees and produce the squatting position. The point is that your feet is in an elevated position, not touching the ground.
You can also include it in your architectural plans such that there is a small stub attached to the feet of the toilet bowl. It has about the same effect. It might be weird at first but when you experience the difference and the ease that comes with it instead of the normal strains… you’d want to stick with this unconventional but more normal way.


  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It appears as though some of the written text
    on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else
    please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.


  2. Excellent post. I used to be checking constantly this
    blog and I am impressed! Very helpful info particularly the remaining phase :
    ) I take care of such information much. I used to be seeking this certain information for
    a long time. Thanks and best of luck.

  3. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate
    a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using
    the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  5. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

  6. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  7. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  8. I think that what you published was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added
    a post title that makes people desire more? I mean Are you pooping the
    right way? – Healthfacts is kinda vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related
    picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your
    posts a little livelier.

  9. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone
    with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  10. Right here is the right website for everyone who hopes to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic which has been discussed for many years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

  11. Thanks for the good writeup. It in fact used
    to be a leisure account it. Glance complicated to
    far delivered agreeable from you! However, how can we keep up a correspondence?

  12. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you need to write more about this issue, it may not
    be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk about these subjects.
    To the next! Many thanks!!

  13. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into
    any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  14. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days,
    yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right
    content as you did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  15. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put
    in writing this site. I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.

    In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own, personal website now 😉

  16. Great weblog here! Also your site loads up fast! What
    web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate hyperlink
    on your host? I desire my site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  17. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like
    to shoot you an email. I’ve got some ideas for
    your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and
    I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  18. I do consider all of the ideas you have introduced to your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners.
    May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  19. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and
    it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest
    you few interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you
    can write next articles referring to this article.

    I want to read even more things about it!

  20. I think that what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, think on this, what if you were to create a awesome
    title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Are you pooping
    the right way? – Healthfacts is a little plain. You might glance
    at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news
    headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might
    make your blog a little bit more interesting.
