The Porcelain Saviour

October 29, 2008

Have you ever wondered if the porcelain saviour has really been brought to you to save your ass?  To the contrary belief that it, also know as the nemesis toilet was one of the best modern inventions can do more harm than unaware.  With the best intentions and with no men of medicine the toilet fails to understand the biomechanics of the human body.

It’s hard to believe that this cold and unyielding to the ass toilet could cause anguish such as constipation, hernias, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and appendicitis.  All of the possible and undesired consequences of using the toilet is acclaimed to the simple action of ‘sit and dump’, which robs us of the nurturing support to the abdominal wall and colon normally accompanied by squatting.  As Dr. Bernard Jensen said “it is my sincere belief that one of the bowel’s greatest enemies in civilized society is the ergonomic nightmare known as the toilet or john” (150).

In ‘uncivilized’ societies, people squat. As nature intended, the natural squatting position supports the bowel and is held in alignment by the thighs contacting the abdominal wall.  This natural squatting position can encourage powerful health benefits.

Health Benefits of Squatting
1) Use the thighs to support the colon and prevent straining.  Chronic straining on the toilet can lead to hernias, hemorrhoids, and diverticulosis.

2) Makes elimination faster, easier and more complete.  This helps prevent fecal stagnation that may become a prime factor in colon cancer, appendicitis, and toxemia in the body.

3) Protects the nerves that control the prostate, bladder, and uterus from becoming stretched and damaged

4) Securely seals the ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine. Without the thighs supporting the ileocecal valve the reflex of fecal matter into the small intestine may occur.

The simple solution to this modern day error is to make use of the natural squatting position on your toilet. Place your feet on the toilet seat and take position. If you feel a little unsteady take your hands to the counter and or to the wall. Otherwise, place hands on legs and hug them with your arms. For more information on better bowel care please, refer to Dr. Bernard Jensens’s Guide To Better Bowel Care.

    No wonder the toilet seat is broken in your home… all the squatting on it~~


  2. […] toilet. Without you, we wouldn’t be a civilized society. Also, maybe we wouldn’t have hemorrhoids, constipation, hernias, and varicose veins. Turns out, people aren’t supposed to sit on a little stool when they do their business. […]
