In the Course of a Research Study, throughout the Internet, by an Inexpert; Comments on the “Proper Toilet Posture”

By: Mashallah Ali-Ahyaie


This is a frank report by an inexpert on the subject (Proper Toilet Posture,) in the course of a research study throughout the Internet, which will be posted on www.radrounds.com, since radiology had a great role in the previous studies, in this regard.

The author is neither a physician nor a radiologist, but a retired chemical engineer, who has worked in various fields, and now daring to carry out research study, on whatsoever that satisfies the curiosity, at least as a pastime leisure.

This study started when, a circulating email had been received from a good friend, on the “Proper Toilet Posture,” introducing a certain stool, for putting feet on, to be able to have a quasi-squatting posture, while in sitting position, on western toilet.

While explaining the whole idea in this write-up, new comments are provided, which may cause new holistic modifications on postures and toilets opening configuration, for which this study has compiled basic required information for starting further developments.



     It is proposed that the suitability of the oval opening rim on the western toilet to be researched and modified for providing more contact area with buttock, thighs and legs, especially when trying alternative yoga- sitting poses on defecation. As a proposal, the current oval opening could be rotated 90 degrees

     It is also proposed that yoga-sitting poses, along with acupressure practices to be studied for the effects on the ease of defecation (if a wider anorectal angle could be achieved,) in comparison to the squatting posture 

Best regards,

Dear All,

    Greetings on the starting days of the reviving spring season, to whoever is experiencing it. I don't know if anybody has downloaded the article attached to my post, since I have received no comment thereon, so far, from 50 viewers. I know everyone is busy enough. However, I proactively solicited comments form a scholar, on acupressure, whom I have referenced to his works on acupressure in the reference list of my article. Please kindly note his kind comments, as follows:

Hi Mashallah,

I did not see any reference to Acupressure Potent Points.
My feedback is on the blog below your comment on this blog,
With healing wishes,

I think that teaching how to use CV 6 to stimulate the large intestines to make defecation easier is appropriate for your article and so many people, new and old.



Acupressure Point CV 6 for Sexual Problems, Constipation, Gas, Irritable Bowel & How to Develop your Healing Energy Reserves

CV 6 is the Sea of Energy Point

One of the most empowering acupressure points on the body is CV 6, known as the Sea of Energy. You can do great healing on yourself and others – if you know the point location of CV 6, its functions, how to tap the point’s healing energy, and know the applications in this article.   CV 6 strengthens the body’s internal condition especially the colon, immune system, sexual urinary reproductive system, and heightens your ability to heal yourself.

Point Location: CV 6 is located two finger widths below the center of your belly button. The finger pressure should always be applied gradually. Go even slower and more carefully into the abdomen for the elderly and sick. During pregnancy be very gentle, and use the palm of your hand instead of fingertips.

Point Function: CV 6 revives the body’s healing processes; develops vitality; strengthens the immune system, urinary system, sexual reproductive system, and benefits the kidneys.  

Good for Relieving: stomachache, abdominal cramping, constipation, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual cramps, insomnia, urinary incontinence, impotence, infertility, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive headaches, body aches, anal or rectal pains, and general weaknesses.

For Constipation: Press CV 6 two or three times a day to relieve and prevent constipation and irritable bowel. Pressing this point activates and strengthens the large intestine, encourages peristalsis, and relaxes the abdomen. Along with this point, I’ve used Chi Gong breathing exercises effectively for constipation and irritable bowel since the colon’s partner is the lungs in traditional Chinese health care.

Emotional & Spiritual Benefits: CV 6 is good for developing emotional stability and for deepening spiritual awareness; strengthens your sense of self; used for self-abuse, addictive behavior, and codepen...

Sexuality: The Sea of Qi (CV 6) is good for all kinds of sexual problems for men and women. The abdominal muscles often tighten during lovemaking, which can block the flow of sexual energy. Pressing CV 6 and acupressure points around it, can relieve the abdominal tension, strengthen the urinary and reproductive systems, and increase sexual intimacy and pleasure.

CV 6 is a longevity point, which can improve your overall health and enable you to live longer. Two to three minutes of firm to deep pressure on this point while breathing slowly and deeply into your belly, strengthens all of your internal organs, and develops your healing energy reserves. For this reason, I have made a covenant, a vow to myself, that I will try to press this point and breathe deeply into it every night before going to sleep. I believe that working on this point in bed with super slow, deep breathing, opens the flow of healing energy while I’m asleep, and thus provides extraordinary healing benefits.

Any worries or regrets in your life will fade away and you’ll get more focused and feel more vital, if you continue to practice breathing deeply into this life giving acupressure point. Share this with your friends and enjoy life; there’s nothing more important!

Best regards,



Good day to you all,

    Greetings and this is to inform that more yoga poses are included on pages 13,14 and 15 of the previous attached file.


All the best,


Mashallah Ali-Ahyaie
