From Dr. K:

Why I Wrote “How to Be a Poop Detective”

My calling, passion and motivation for writing my book stems from over fifteen years of practice where I have daily discussions with kids and families about dietary decisions which support a well-functioning digestive tract and how this relates to different health conditions. For this reason, I strongly believe that poop education is an essential component of medicine and should be discussed on a routine basis.

About “How to Be a Poop Detective”

My book helps to teach kids and parents all about what actually constitutes normal pooping. You’d be surprised, but many kids and parents are grateful for this education because they are unaware their bathroom experience isn’t what it should be. The simple concept is projected through the main theme of my book — the “5 S’s” of poop: shape, soft, sink, shade and shoot. It might sound a bit humorous, but that adds to the message’s impact when I draw pictures of poop shapes. Through this exercise, the smiles, giggles and curiosity commonly transition to amazement as we often come to learn that constipation is an unrealized issue and a key factor responsible for their various ill symptoms.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, “All disease begins in the gut”. I know many patients, both past and current, who will attest to the fact that when simple dietary modifications were made and the “5 S’s” monitored, their childrens disease states improved or were alleviated completely. And, again, when they combine my simple approach with the Squatty Potty, everyone’s poop literally shoots out with ease as it should. They become professional expert poop detectives.


Latest: The Squatty Potty Edition

I recently released a second edition of my children’s book, “How to Be a Poop Detective”, The Squatty Potty Edition. I highly recommend all humans squat when pooping just like toddlers instinctually do when they are eliminating in a pull-up. We are constructed and meant to poop squatting.

I regularly teach my patients and families that healthy poop indicates a healthy gut and as a result, a healthier body. We also discuss how important it is to eliminate the “trash” in their “pipe” or colon daily. We talk about how to detect foods and drinks that can clog our pipes and those that help to move them along and show how these choices, along with the Squatty Potty, create a happy and efficient elimination process.

Prevent constipation and have “the best poop of your life” with simple dietary modifications and by using the Squatty Potty! My book and this product are the perfect marriage and are in harmony with the “end goal”…a happy, easy-to-empty, colon:).

Therefore, I am thrilled to endorse an amazing product, the Squatty Potty and am equally excited to have teamed up the company for my book’s new edition.

Squatty Potty is one of the most ingenius inventions I have come across in my medical career. Why? Because we have a pooping-problem epidemic in this country and as a medical doctor, I am on the front line trying to teach families why and how to fix this.

Entire aisles in stores are dedicated to a billion dollar industry to unnaturally aid and assist our nation’s problematic pooping process with drugs. The Squatty Potty has been a miraculous addition to my crusade because it, like my book, offers a natural approach to help all Americans, big and small, poop easier.

Squatty Potty and I have merged our happy-pooping mindset by modifying my book to create this Squatty Potty edition. In that, it displays the obvious reasons for our marriage. I am proud and excited to be part of the Squatty Potty Family and to share my book with you.
