Our bathroom habits are unhealthy, unhygienic, unsustainable. We deal with record number of hemorrhoids, digestion, constipation issues. But there is a simple solution.

Why are we such bad poopers?

1. We Sit Down to Poop

Doctors say we were meant to squat and poop, not sit. Squatting straightens out the colon, making things flow easier and faster.

Squatting or using a squat stool can prevent and help:

  • hemorrhoids
  • IBS
  • diverticulitis
  • digestive problems
  • pelvic floor issues

HOW TO POOP BETTER: Use a Squatty Potty, step stool, or even a stack of phone books to elevate your legs off the ground while you do your business.  Find out how this transformative device reduces straining and bloating, relieves constipation, hemorrhoids, IBS and pelvic floor issues.

2. We Wipe Instead of Rinse

Bidets are popular everywhere except for North America. But using water to wash after pooping is actually cleaner.

A bidet:

  • can reduce the spread of disease and bacteria
  • get your bum cleaner

Ask yourself: If you saw poop on the ground, would you wipe it with a paper towel or wash it away with a hose?

3. We Use Tons of Toilet Paper

Americans use more paper products per person than any other country. We use 36.5 billion rolls of toilet paper per year. A bidet uses some water, but nowhere near the amount needed to create toilet paper.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT: Consider getting a bidet toilet attachment or a full-on bidet toilet seat with air dryer.
