Chewing food

Chewing Gum

The action of chewing or moving your mouth indicates to your brain the presence of food.
This stimulates your food processing unit called the Gastro-intestinal system in preparation for processing and digestion of this food.
Peristaltic waves that help to move this food further down the alimentary canal are created by the musculature that makes up the tube that is the GI system.
This action contributes to the urge to evacuate the bowel in preparation for more to come.

Saliva in the mouth contains a growth factor that stimulates the body to start healing the stomach and intestinal wall.
Chewing sugar free gum will therefore help heal an inflamed intestinal wall.
In a similar fashion, drinking a large glass of warm water on waking in the morning will cause stretching or distention in the stomach wall and result in the creation of a muscular wave that will stimulate the rectum to prepare for the process of defecation.

 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.
