I recently received an email which gave a link to a you tube video on benefits of squatting in the toilet. Here’s the link – http://www.youtube.com/embed/pYcv6odWfTM
Although the above video is also an advertisement for a toilet gadget, it made me wonder how many of us Indians continue to use the old-fashioned toilets versus the modern toilets. Unfortunately, not many of us have access to the Indian toilets or even if we do, some people cannot use it because of joint pains or some other health problem.
Good old Indian toilets have health benefits –
A few doctors in the western countries have started to suggest using the squatting position for better bowel health.
Try to squat every now and then; it will help!
