Hey, I know today’s post about easy bowel movements isn’t exactly on an elegant topic, but there are hundreds of thousands of aging baby boomers (as well as younger people) out there suffering serious constipation, so today I’m going to do my bit to help!
You see, most people eating a conventional, modern diet composed predominantly of processed foods will rarely experience a normal bowel movement.
And that’s a crying shame because a really good b.m. leaves you with practically the same feeling you’d get if, say, the Publisher’s Clearinghouse award van pulled into your driveway.
Enough of that. Let’s get to the technique you can start using today to have easier bowel movements…
What I’m about to write will probably sound odd to some, but you can have a better and more complete evacuation of your intestines every day if you do one simple thing:
Put a footstool in front of the toilet.
Then, when you sit down to make a deposit, put your feet on top of the footstool.
As most of the rest of the world knows, the easiest bowel movements come when the human body is in a squatting position.
Using a footstool with an American toilet helps to more closely get the body in the natural position.
It’s even better to put the seat in the up position on the toilet and to then squat on the rim of the commode.
This suggestion is too much for me, and I don’t recommend the squatting on the rim technique for those with balance problems, and I’ve also heard of a postal worker (no kidding) who was fired because he refused to take his shoes off when balancing on the rim of the commode at work.
I don’t know how he was ever caught in the act, so don’t ask.
Seriously, the footstool technique works wonders for constipated people, and most Americans are seriously constipated.
Try this method today and then come back and comment and help to encourage others to try it too!
Oh, one more thing. My friend Dr. Ben Kim has an extremely informative article on easy bowel movements that is worth reading… and then some. Click here to read that article.
