I squat right outside the bathroom door, and in that position read a few pages of some book. As soon as the pressure builds up, I hurry to the bathroom to evacuate.
Unfortunately I have a western style toilet. I am from India and I love squatting toilets.
Early in the morning, after cleaning my teeth, I drink 3-4 glasses of lukewarm water. ( I use to add lemon- honey to it) but now I keep it simple. Its just filtered water.
After drinking my water, if I still haven't had the urge to poop, I squat down on the floor and read a few pages of my book. Very soon, the pressure has built us to defecate....Just rush to bathroom and do it. Sometimes my system clears in 2-3 trips to bathroom.
I think squatting really helps and cannot hurt you. Its just a simple exercise which facilitates passage of bowels..
Good that you havent tried enemas. My advice. Stay away from them.
