The contents of the small intestine pour into the Cecum via the Ileocecal valve. This is the beginning of the large intestine. A small pouch called the Appendix is attached to the Cecum. Blockage of the opening between the Cecum and the pouch called the Appendix often occurs due to a build up of Fluids and waste from partially digested foods.

Infection and inflammation are a result of this stagnation and blockage and is known as Appendicitis, a condition common in the west and rare among populations who consume large quantities of unprocessed plant based foods and adopt the Squat posture for evacuation or emptying of the bowel.

The Fibre (a good mix of soluble as well as insoluble fibre) in the plant based foods helps to form a stool of the correct consistency and the squat posture actually helps create compression at the part of the abdomen where the Cecum and Appendix are located. Pressures created in the Appendix and Cecum on the one side and the Sigmoid Colon on the other side of the Abdomen by the compression of the Thighs on these areas when in the squat posture actually compresses the waste upward from the Cecum into the Ascending Colon and downward from the Sigmoid Colon into the Rectum.

Waste from the Appendix and Cecum is required to flow into the Ascending Colon and towards the Transverse and Sigmoid Colon. Blockages in the Appendix are avoided when waste is compressed away towards the Ascending Colon by the squat posture.

Sadly, this condition is now increasingly appearing in some Indian, Japanese and African populations as they adopt western life styles with particular emphasis on the adoption of the raised toilet seat for evacuation of the bowel in favour of the Squat toilet and increased consumption of processed foods lacking in good quality fibre.

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.
