The Edwards have always been a very health conscious family, but after a few years of some colon issues we were seeking a natural and inexpensive solution that would help correct and heal the problems we were experiencing. That’s when we found a wonderful and simple solution…. “Squatting” The simple knowledge of getting our knees up while going to the bathroom made a remarkable difference. We searched and searched but we could not find a good solution for putting us into a squatting position while using our toilet. After trying different stools, books and buckets we decided to take matters into our own hands. That’s when we came up with the Squatty Potty® toilet stool. The Squatty Potty mimics a natural squat, allowing for easier and healthier elimination while still allowing the user the comfort and convenience of their own toilet.
