Squatty Potty announced that in the past six months it has shipped 10,000 Squatty Potty toilet footstools across the globe, optimizing the bathroom experience and helping to improve digestive health for users across six continents and in all 50 states in the United States.
The Squatty Potty is a toilet footstool designed to improve bathroom posture by helping assume the squatting position for more effective elimination. Recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show, the Squatty Potty has a convenient design that allows it to be easily stored at the base of the toilet to prevent clutter of the bathroom.
“The Squatty Potty is comfortable, convenient and most important of all, effective,” said Robert Edwards, creator of the Squatty Potty. “The customer response to this product has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are thrilled with the success our company has already seen in such a short period of time. The Squatty Potty will soon be a mainstay in bathrooms everywhere.”
The concept of squatting has become a rising trend in health circles as doctors, naturopaths and holistic health professionals have highlighted the health drawbacks of the modern toilet. According to these experts, squatting also leads to better elimination and helps in the prevention of colon disease, constipation, hemorrhoids and similar ailments.
The concept has proven especially helpful for women suffering from pelvic floor and bladder issues. As part of the treatment process, leading pelvic floor clinics recommend patients elevate their feet during elimination.
“After suffering from chronic constipation for years, the Squatty Potty has made a world of difference in my bathroom habits,” said Squatty Potty customer Sandra Lahaie of Goodyear, Ariz. “I tried numerous pills, powders and changing my diet but to no avail – the Squatty Potty was the solution I needed. I love my Squatty Potty and I’m thankful for such a wonderful product.”
Squatty Potty began in May 2010, when Judy Edwards, Robert’s mother, sought relief from lifelong constipation by gathering boxes and stacking phone books in front of the toilet to serve as squatting platforms. The results were immediate, but the inconvenience prompted Judy and her husband, Bill, to solicit the services of their son to produce a footstool that could be stored discretely under the toilet. After consulting with doctors, nurses, alignment specialists and natural health experts to identify the perfect height, position, and angle ideal for squatting, Robert designed the Squatty Potty in his parents’ garage – the solution to Judy’s and countless others’ colon problems.
