After years of sitting on a pedestal toilet, changing to a ‘proppr’ position can take a little getting used to. Sitting with your feet on a toilet footstool changes your body alignment, raising your knees above your hips, which is important and what ‘unkinks’ your colon. It’s the best way for us to replicate the squat position and make for more comfortable and complete pooping.
However, without getting into too much visual detail, this then changes the position of your bottom on the toilet seat and can take a little getting used to. We generally find using a toilet footstool such as the PROPPR bathroom footrest can take from as little as a few days and up to several weeks for your body to adjust and enjoy pooping in the proper position. If you do experience any discomfort we do encourage you persevere – in time you’ll find sitting on the toilet with your feet on a PROPPR footstool the comfortable norm.
