The Edwards family–consisting of husband and wife Bill and Judy and son Bobby–had always been very health conscious. When some colon troubles began to bug them, they sought an inexpensive, all-natural way to treat them. Which led them to the discovery that squatting to go the bathroom was the way that God had designed our bodies. Therefore, they set to work to design a stool that would mimic squatting while using a standard toilet. The result was their product and company, the Squatty Potty, founded in October of 2010.
The Squatty Potty comes in two different heights: 9 inches and 7 inches. I chose the 9 inches because I thought both my hubby and I were flexible enough for it. Turns out that I am, but he needs some practice! I personally really like the height of the stool as it’s very comfortable to use.
One thing I noticed when I started using the stool was that, during longer sessions, my legs no longer lost circulation. Previously, when I was sitting for more than 10 minutes or so, my legs would start falling asleep; apparently, keeping them in a squatting position is better for circulation, too!
I’ve also noticed that I don’t need to be sitting there for so long. I get my business done quicker. And easier. I know this is probably TMI, but I’m trying to make it as minimally icky as possible!
I can’t be for sure that my colon health is better (at least not at this time), but “going” is a lot easier and quicker now thanks to our Squatty Potty. I’ve also heard that using a Squatty Potty helps to minimize the bulge around the waste line. I’m looking forward to seeing if that it’s true, too!
