The Feeling of unfinished business

The feeling of “unfinished” or “half finished” business due to incomplete emptying of the bowel

The feeling that there is something left behind in the rectum even after evacuation is quite common when adopting the raised toilet.

There may be legitimate medical reasons for this feeling. Inflammation in the lining of the Colon, retained impacted faeces in the rectum, unformed soft stool, or a growth or Tumour can often cause this feeling to materialise and may need urgent medical attention.

When attempting to open the bowel for evacuation while in the sitting posture, one needs to strain and push in order to create pressures within the abdominal cavity. Even when the bowel does move, one is often left with the feeling that there is something “left behind” in the rectum and there is an urge to keep sitting on the toilet seat in order to wait and finish the business in hand.

Squatting, on the other hand leads to total emptying within seconds of adopting the posture and there is no urge to keep sitting and waiting for the job to be finished.
In addition, provided the stool is well formed, there is no faecal matter left attached to the anus to be wiped clean.

How to heal and prevent Bowel disorders

Diet is not about what you should NOT eat, it’s about what you should include in the diet that matters.
As long as your diet includes the correct balance of plant foods containing soluble fibre, insoluble fibre and resistant starch your colon will produce the perfectly formed stool. The important next step is to evacuate this stool without straining so that the body does not suffer from the pressures created each time the bowel is emptied.

In order to heal and prevent bowel disorders you need to make lifestyle changes that last the rest of your life time.

1. Include more fluids and plant food containing soluble fibre, insoluble fibre and resistant starch in the diet so that the perfectly formed stool will be made in the colon and beneficial bacteria will flourish and eliminate disease causing bacteria and fungi.

2. Evacuate the perfectly formed stool by adopting the squat posture to eliminate the need to strain during bowel movements.

It is not possible or safe to squat on the modern raised toilet seat installed in all western homes and it is impossible to squat for any length of time if you have not done this from childhood onwards. This makes the use of any raised platforms impossible to adapt to.

The SquattLooStool is designed to allow you to adopt the squat posture while seated comfortably on your raised toilet seat.
The single best and easiest lifestyle change you will ever make, leading to a healthier body.
