One day I was watching Dr. Oz and he showed a diagram that I had never seen before. It was the picture of a person on the toilet and it showed the angle of the poop leaving the body. The way that we use the bathroom traditionally puts a kink in our colon which makes it more difficult for the poop to come out. If you raise your legs up the angle makes all the difference in the WORLD!! Please watch the video on The Ask Dr. Renee Show and let me know what you think. In the meantime, I purchased a Squatty Potty and I believe that I have improved my gut health.
