We will be discussing ways to detox today.
Ways to help the body with getting rid of toxins:
Did you know that the majority of the planet goes to the bathroom (bowel movements) in the squatting position as opposed to the seated position? Squatting is actually the most anatomically correct way to use the bathroom because it relaxes a small muscle called the puborectalis.
There is a solution to this problem besides heading outside to squat when you need to use the restroom. It is called the squatty potty. (Or you can also find a small stool that could work also!).
There are numerous benefits to this simple contraption such as less straining (hemorrhoids), less wiping, and better emptying of the bowel.
If you have any issues with constipation, SIBO, or any bowel movement issues at all, I highly recommend using a stool or a squatty potty.
Also a video about positioning and why this is useful for everyone!
Note: if video playback is jerky, it likely means the video is buffering and waiting for your internet to catch up. If this happens, just hit the download icon (down arrow in lower right hand corner of video) and watch once it downloads. You can also tap the double arrow icon to put the video in full screen mode.
