The abstract ends with the statement, "A diet rich in fibre and regular physical activity have a therapeutic and preventive effect on colorectal diseases associated with faecal retention."

But neither dietary fibre nor exercise addresses the main cause of faecal retention: the unnatural method of defaecation used in the western world. Like all primates, humans were designed to squat for bodily functions. A close analysis of the biomechanics of excretion in the squatting and sitting positions shows why these diseases are confined to westernized societies. Until this factor is understood and applied, research on faecal retention will have little or no practical value.

Faecal retention: A common cause in functional bowel disorders, appendicitis and haemorrhoids – with medical and surgical therapy
Congratulation for wonderful information related to constipation especially as causes of so many medical problems.
Evidences show majority of constipation are obstructive type secondary to pelvic floor sagging.

This one concluded: Bowel dysfunction correlates exclusively with posterior aspects of the pelvic floor support
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16813743
If sagging is the major cause, undo the sagging should have significant therapeutic outcome on constipation.
This evidence show pelvic floor support during defecation, improve 96% of constipation.

If constipation is major factor for so many medical problems, including IBS and appendicitis. It is interesting to find out if Undo the sagging with support of pelvic floor during defecation will have any significant role on the diseases like IBS and appendicitis?
