Welles Step

# GW 1001
Welles Step
The original "potty step!" Dr. William Welles was a chiropractor, nutritionist, and kinesiologist who studied with the late Dr. Bernard Jensen (author of "Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management"). Through his studies and experiences, he reached the conclusion that a healthy bowel is the key to general good health. He created the Welles Step to assist people in achieving the proper posture for elimination: squatting. Until the mid-1850s, people squatted to eliminate. Then the forerunner of the modern toilet was invented. According to Dr. Welles, we have been the worse for it; the modern toilet is not designed to support the abdominal area during elimination. (For an article about this subject, click here.) The Welles Step is designed to place the body into the proper alignment during this process. Helps with constipation and hemorrhoids. Sturdy white steel frame, comfortable footrests; fits around the toilet base for out-of-the-way storage. Click here for a flier on the Welles Step.

1s1s1s1s1sThrilled to finally find this product
By Helen C
When I was studying Ayurveda with Dr. Lad in Albuquerque, he advocated this product, and our whole class bought one ... this was in 1992. Mine finally died this past year and I've not been able to find the product, due to not realizing the name was not "Wells" -- suggestion to company: do what is necessary for this product to show up in a google search for Wells Step. This is a wonderful product. Once you try it, you won't want to be without it.
