Adoption of different methods of cleansing ourselves

The modern western Bathroom consists mainly of a Bath, Shower Cubicle, Water Basin and the familiar and famous RAISED TOILET SEAT. These facilities are considered most essential for the personal activities of Body cleansing and waste elimination. A BIDET may be found in some bathrooms.

The physical abilities of men and women the world over remain the same as those of our nearest ancestors. Our biological needs remain the same as ever and yet we seem to adopt different methods of cleansing our bodies and adopt different postures for eliminating waste from our bodies.

Bathrooms in various parts of the world are designed to allow for the different methods of personal hygiene ways adopted. Cultural and religious influence appears to have contributed to the moulding of ways adopted.

In the west, we have large baths and showers to cleanse our bodies. We sit down on a raised toilet seat to open our bowels to eliminate waste from our bodies. A lot of countries in the East have adopted these western ways, but generally the bathroom is designed so that the body is cleansed while sitting or squatting down on the floor and elimination of waste is carried out by adopting a SQUAT POSTURE over a toilet which is at ground level. Instead of using wet or dry toilet tissue to wipe the anal area, washing with water is the preferred method in the East (China, Japan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South East Asia)

What determined the different methods adopted?

The Historical methods for these bodily functions for all humanity appear to have been the same for all cultures. However, technology, “civilization” and the availability or not of water appears to have played a large role in determining which method was adopted. However, certain attitudes are ingrained in our religious beliefs, Philosophical and Psychological attitudes to life. Medical knowledge of the time and public opinion seems to have played an important part in the choice of Elimination and Cleansing facilities adopted.



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.
