Maintaining Regular Bowel Functions

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:19 PM

Although colon cleansers may be good for some people by helping them to maintain proper bowel health, the most important factor is understanding and looking after your body’s systems. Eating enough high fiber vegetables can encourage proper and easy bowel movements.

Squatting Position
This is considered important by some people but is not endorsed by all researchers or doctors.

Conventional toilets offer a squatting position. This is claimed by some people to cause some waste to accumulate in the lower regions of the colon before getting excreted.

They suggest that keeping both feet on the rim of the toilet can offer smooth bowel movements through the squatting position. Those who support the theory believe that because the squatting position causes your head to be in a forward position, this helps to straighten your colon and make excretion of fecal matter easier and more complete. They also suggest that this may also help people with hemorrhoids. Their view is that this position allows fecal matter to fall off easily, so there is no strain or pressure on the veins.

Their view is that sitting on a toilet seat may cause the colon to be curved at the end during excretion which may prevents complete clearing of the colon and causes some fecal matter to be left behind in the colon.

About Me

In its broadest sense, science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") refers to any systematic knowledge or practice. In its more usual restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Fields of science are commonly classified along two major lines: natural sciences, which study natural phenomena (including biological life), and social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These groupings are empirical sciences, which means the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being experimented for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions.
