Outlet obstruction constipation
Pelvic floor Dysfunction

The external anal sphincter, which is part of the pelvic floor, is kept tightly closed to prevent faecal leakage.
During a bowel movement this sphincter needs to relax to allow an open passage for the stool to pass.
People who have a habit of Straining to have a bowel movement often find it difficult to relax the external anal sphincter muscle.
During straining the sphincter muscle actually contracts and closes the anal passage tightly. Straining causes this “paradoxical contraction” which refers to an abnormal increase of pelvic floor muscle activity with defecation, rather than the normal decrease in muscle activity that is necessary in order to have a normal bowel movement.
This condition results in
An inability to pass stool
The feeling of incomplete evacuation and
The need to strain even more in order to complete emptying of the bowel.

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.
