A TikTok doctor has left social media users stunned after revealing a bizarre position you should use while on the toilet to make it easier on your body.
She has recently hit the headlines after sharing the side effects of not wearing socks and why you should put your hair up before going to the toilet.
In her latest video, which has over 26.5m views, Dr Sadovskaya reveals a bizarre sitting position that can help when you’re struggling to poop or are suffering from constipation.
“Constipation is an issue itself but it [using the wrong position] can also lead to haemorrhoids, anal fissures, urinary problems, even increases the risks of colorectal cancer,” Dr Sadovskaya, from Singapore, told NeedToKnow.co.uk.
“In addition to all of the above, it can cause nutritional deficiencies, bowel dysfunction and even psychological issues.
“This hack works like a kind of self-massage, helping the stool to come out faster and easier.
“It’s quite effective in case of light constipation.
“As well as sitting in this position, you should increase your fibre intake, stay hydrated, exercise regularly, avoid caffeine and alcohol.”
In the clip, posted to TikTok, Dr Sadovskaya can be seen sitting on a toilet while wearing a black dressing gown.
She then grabs her left leg and puts her foot on her right knee.
After this, she turns her body to face the opposite side.
Dr Sadovskaya captioned the clip: “What to do if you’re constipated and can’t poop? Try this position, it will help you to poop fast.”
The post has so far gathered 1.8 million likes and 39,100 comments from followers.
