Sitting in the toilet, you should not exceed 3 minutes.
According to Dr. Sun Li, director of the rectal anal treatment center of Zhengzhou Hospital (China), “One of the causes of rectal anatomy is a long-standing bowel habit.”
Because when going to defecate, every centimeter of the intestine is under tens of kilograms of body pressure. If you regularly read newspapers or smoke when defecation lasts for a long time, it can cause intestinal mucosa, constipation, hemorrhoids and other diseases.
In particular, if going to the toilet for too long (often sitting on the toilet for more than 15 minutes) will prevent the venous blood circulation in the pelvic cavity, dilate blood vessels, and produce hemorrhoids.
Even losing the sensitivity of the rectum to stimulating bowel movements, gradually it can cause constipation and seriuosly it can lead to intestinal cancer.
Therefore, experts recommend that maintaining the toileting routine for 3 minutes at a time. Appropriate toilet time is 2 to 3 minutes, up to 5 minutes for gastrointestinal illnesses.
But today people can sit for 15 to 20 minutes with mobile devices in their hands, increasing the burden on the rectum “, even someone who has had rectal prolapse, fell into the intestines because of defecation born too long – Dr. Sun Li also recommends.
And common mistakes when sitting in toilet that harms our health.
Sitting on the ground too much
Many statistics show that about 75% of the world’s population “goes heavy” in the way of sitting on the ground. However, the fact that this method will cause us to use more force to push, creating great pressure on the gut. and it creats a great pressure on the intestine.
With this position, the rectum does not fully open, but rather like a knotted tube. Therefore, the anus is under pressure to prevent the bowel excretion from being completely rinsed.
Sitting when you go to the toilet can cause many diseases such as colon inflammation, hemorrhouds or constipation, even rectal cance.
Instead of sitting on the ground, when going to the toilet, you should sit with the squat posture because it is natural one and press against the knee with the upper body.
This posture creates space between the intestinal organs and the muscular system, optimizing the forces involved in urination.
Both go to the toilet and read the newspaper/ phone
Because it is the place of millions of hidden Ecoli bacteria. When you use your phone or books, this bacterium easily attaches to your body and goes everywhere with you.
In addition, thoughts and consciousness are focused on books or phones, thereby inhibiting the sense of secretion, disturbing the command of the brain for secretive neurotransmission, prolonging the time defecation.
Prolonged sitting on the toilet will also cause blood stasis in the pelvic cavity, swollen anal anus, anal bleeding to increase the risk of hemorrhoids.
Stand up after right when you go to the toilet
According to many studies, stand up quickly after sitting for a long time will make your body change suddenly.
At this point, you may experience dizziness and dizziness due to temporary anemia. People with cardiovascular problems, brain or blood pressure also need to pay attention to eliminate this habit so as not to harm health.
