“This Is Something We’ve Been Doing Wrong All Along”
Yes.Yes.You are right…….I am seriously talking of the real Shit,not the shit happening in this world.
How do you take a shit ?(warning- If you’re shit scared of shitty matter, refrain from reading)
Yes.I can feel your expression, ‘Yuck’ ‘Yuck’ Right ?
All of us feel disgusted when somebody talks of poop. “ughh…”.
I want to be brutally frank.Talking of Poop ( except during eating ),I need not feel ashamed.Why should anybody,since It is one of the basic human actions.
OK.Let us not get annoyed..Is not Poop part of our body, originated from the very Butter scotch you savored sometime back ?
As a medical professional,I forgot the word ‘Disgust’ long time back and know nothing as to how it feels.
Being a doctor, I am also particular about the way we undo the poop stuff, and avoid infections,commonly Urinary tract infection more commonly in women.
Right or wrong over the generations ,the parents have passed on the their own know-how knowledge to their children as to the methodology of post poop techniques. But present day scenario is different.A proper training ,and awareness is very very important.
Wherever I provided a link,please have patience to go through.
Before I proceed further, you must be aware of the three steps,we follow to get free of the stuff ,namely
1.Positioning yourself, for a favorable outcome.
2.Cleaning the mess you made around the bottom-hole.
3.When you wipe yourself, which hand do you use, your dominant hand or your non-dominant hand?
What is the posture you adopt ? and why ? Are you pooping the wrong way ?
1.Sit on the Commode ( toilet) ( Sitting said to make the evacuation incomplete As per scientific studies). Don’t just sit there !
The only plus point for the Western Toilet Without a doubt is, it is much better suited for disabled and those with back ache and spine and disc / knee joint problems.
2.Squat on the porcelain stuff.( Recommended by many,but not possible for people with disc-spine problems)
Now let us talk of cleaning part.
How do you clean your poop ? and which is better ?
1.Cleaning your bottom hole with toilet paper.( Commonly followed in American & most of the European countries ). This process is said to leave some shit traces,and the person is said to carry this,wherever he/she goes)
2.Washing your rear with water,then pat down with a towel or soft toilet paper. ( In most of the developed Asian countries and some European cities),said to be the most hygienic way to get rid of shit
3.Using the hand & water (popular method in under developed Asian countries).
Most of the toilets will have Bucket filled with water and a Mug.
Once you have the water in the mug, hold it with your right hand and take it behind and tilt it a bit so that water starts falling slowly..make sure that it falls in the center (butt cleave) and from left hand side you are supposed to wipe the poop, with left hand,clean the area with movements of left hand along with water splash.(Don’t use Right hand, Remember your right hand is used for eating ,shaking hand etc )
Now the most important job…give your hands a good soap water wash after that. At this stage you can use tissue paper to wipe the wet area dry.I must say it all feels far more natural than using paper and either flushing it into the sea, or, even worse, leaving it for someone else to deal with !!
I don’t have any idea how things are done in African countries,since I don’t have any experience.I request blog members to add to my knowledge pool.
If you are an international traveler you should also remember the terminology used in different countries for the toilet namely,rest room,water closet,toilette,loo,dunny,ben-jo,bathroom,No-2 etc
I know it’s a controversial subject and each school of thought claim they are the best.
Some observations from the westerners
“Speaking of intimate. I sit in the “Indian” fashion no matter where I am. Yes, even if it’s a Western-style toilet. Even if it’s in the US or Europe. I also secretly wish that the whole world adopted the “hygiene faucet” but alas, they are not ready yet… Toilet paper has everyone in its soft, papery grip.” Ben.A.Wise
“You see, in India, most toilets have a hose-sort-of-looking thing attached that you’re supposed to stick under your butt to wash yourself. In fact, most of India thinks toilet paper is actually sort of gross. The logic being, why wouldn’t you wash your butt after you poop the same way you’d wash your hands after you poop? Why are a few simple plies of toilet paper sufficient enough to get your downstairs clean?
It’s enough to make you wonder: Is everyone in the Western world just walking around with poop on their butts all day? Are we the weird ones? Is the butt hose truly the most hygienic way to clean up after taking care of business?
It’s time the West embraced the butt hose. Our pants are full of microscopic shit particles and it’s really weird. In 2017 we need to really mix things up, and I think a fundamental rethinking of how we take a shit is a great first step.Ryan Broderick
