Squatting and lack of hemorrhoid in Asian population
It is related to Esther Gokhale recent "Squatting" video.
Yesterday PT told me that in Asian cultures women so not sit down on toilet stand...or did not use to sit down...
She said they do mot have hemorrhoid conditions.
She proceeded to explain to me how sitting on a usual toilet stand contributes to hemorrhoid stuff...i did not really get it...something about pelvic area angle.
So i would like to ask if anyone knows anything...please share with us. What is exactly the difference between squatting and sitting down on the toilet for women in the sense of muscles and pelvic rotation (i guess in Esther terms "tacking your butt")? How it affects blood flow and hemorrhoid?
