apparently ladies in France who use 'squat' toilets have far less pelvic floor problems as it is a much more natural way to stimulate the bowel to open without straining. I'm saying no more

Definitely true, and also a reason why men tend to have less bowel probelms than women (generalised comment) as they have longer lower legs, so when seated on the loo their knees are automatically higher than their hips. Gentle rocking can also help.
Diagnosed HEDS December 1st 2005. DD1 (20) HEDS and scoliosis (now corrected by surgery), diagnosed June 2006. DD2 (18) mild HMS. Son (11) some hypermobile joints, poor muscle strength and seems to be developing scoliosis as well, woopee!

I now have a footstool in the loo to put my feet on. Your knees should be higher than your hips. Lean forwards and put elbows on your knees - this is the correct position for you to be in when sitting on your throne.
