Happy Sunday, IBS Sisters! I hope you are all having a great weekend so far! Mine has been very relaxing so far, which was and is much needed! I’ve been working hard on ChronicALLY Box, but I’ve been asleep by 8 PM every night! 🙂 Love it! I hope you have been able to get some much needed rest this weekend as well! If you haven’t already, sign up for ChronicALLY Box today to get 10% off for life! We were formally Box Full of Spoons, but we are going to reach so many chronic illness warriors with this new name, I just know it! We launch this month, so stay tuned! And thank you all who have been staying tuned, and have been extremely patience with us! 🙂 With a new name comes new pricing, so check it out!
I wanted to write a post about my new purchase, the SQUATTY POTTY! I have been using the Squatty Potty for about 3 weeks now, and I love it! I have really found that it helps with relieving constipation. Even if it’s just trapped gas, it helps with that too! Something about the angle in which you POOP, is more natural this way, and it really does help! It’s not too natural though, they say! It’s just right! It takes the kink out of your colon. It’s doctor recommended, fits any toilet, and helps with elimination! I noticed after one week of having it, I had to travel and didn’t bring it with me, and I missed it! So I actually used extra pillows in my hotel room to prop up my feet to get this poop angle, LOL! They do even have inflatable travel Squatty Potty’s!
Which brings me to, if you don’t want to pay for a squatty potty, our fellow IBS Sister GiGi said that you literally can use a stool the same height and you can get the same effect. If you already have one laying around, you could even try it before making the purchase of the squatty potty! You can store it right behind your throne 🙂 I found that the Squatty Potty was reasonably priced, though, at just $24.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I also had a 20% off coupon, which are very easy to come by (They even accept expired and competitor coupons!), so I got my Squatty Potty for $20! The design is very nice that it just slides right up next to your throne’s base. It doesn’t get in the way of non-Squatty Potty users that also use your throne 😉 But if they want to give it a try, I would say that would end up loving it, too! I haven’t convinced my husband to try it yet, but I’m still working on it! HA! It’s great for the whole family! Especially when they’re having trouble getting things moving.
