Loss of Mobility
Over 70 million Americans suffer from joint inflammation, or arthritis. These along with surgeries, broken bones, and simply old age can often limit mobility and give the feeling of being disabled. Often these losses in mobility can make it hard to do tasks that used to be simple, such as using the restroom. Not being able to use the restroom by oneself is often degrading, and frustrating. Bidets can assist with cleaning, which is often the hardest part of the restroom experience. Because of this, bidets often help those with loss of mobility use the restroom on their own. Owning a bidet is a must for anyone currently struggling to use the restroom on their own.
Comfort for those suffering from hemorrhoids
Each year, approximately 12 percent of the United States population (about 2 million people) seek medical care for hemorrhoids. Over 50% of Americans over the age of 45 will have hemorrhoids at some point in their life.
Hemorrhoids are varicose veins that swell in the rectum near and around the anus. These varicose veins can have a variety of symptoms, including itching, burning sensations, swelling, and general irritation and pain. Along with these symptoms, Hemorrhoids are often accompanied with bleeding around, at or near the anal canal.
For those dealing with hemorrhoids, or worried about developing them, we have good news! Hemorrhoids normally develop due to pressure build up in the lower rectum. This pressure build up is often caused by excess blood flow, and pressure to the veins in the rectum. Common causes of this excess blood flow include long restroom visits, constipation, irritation to the rectum from toilet paper, and pregnancy.
Eliminating constipation can help reduce the risk of hemorrhoids. This can be done by adding fiber to your diet, and using a bidet with an enema feature. The warm seat featured on many of our bidets also helps to stimulate bowel movement, further reducing hemorrhoid risk. Bidet use can remove the need for abrasive toilet paper completely. Bidets with aeration, and air dry features can make the experience very comforting, and relieve some of the symptoms of hemorrhoids.
The steps used to reduce the risk or hemorrhoids are the same steps needed to get rid of hemorrhoids once they develop. Neglecting to take these steps once hemorrhoids develop can lead to requiring surgery to remove them. Don’t be afraid of hemorrhoids, take the proper steps to live healthy, and avoid them in the first place!
If you’re looking for a solution to constipation, you’ve come to the right place. While the main focus of a bidet seat is cleaning, there are some seats on the market that also offer an enema function, and some that do enemas VERY well. The enema function built into some of the higher end seats delivers a strong stream to the anus. Those looking to utilize this wash simply have to relax their anus, and let the stream do the rest. Our top pick for those suffering from constipation would be the BB-2000. This unit offers a powerful spray, that includes a “vortex” stream, which spins the water, to give it additional power. If you’re looking for a seat that will provide the best for constipation, look no further. Have questions or concerns? Just ask us! BB-2000 Bliss Bidet Seat
Relief and Comfort for those with Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects the large intestine, and most often has one or more of the following symptoms:
Constipation or Diarrhea
Mucus in the stool
Many times irritable bowel syndrome can be managed and controlled with lifestyle changes, such as diet, and reducing stress, but very seldom do the symptoms go away altogether. Fortunately, IBS does not cause permanent damage to the colon.
Those suffering from IBS often need to use the restroom more often. This often leads to rashes and irritation due to excessive toilet paper use. Bidets replace the need for toilet paper with a more gentle, kinder cleaning experience, making IBS that much easier to live with.
Comfort for those with Crohn’s disease
Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease, also known as IBD. Unlike irritable bowel syndrome, which affects the large bowel, Crohn’s disease affects the small intestines, and the very beginning of the colon or large intestines. As Crohn’s disease develops, it causes the walls of the small intestines to inflame.
Some common Crohn’s disease symptoms include Rectal bleeding, Persistent Diarrhea, Abdominal cramps and pain, Urgent need to move bowels, and Constipation. Similar to the other gastrointestinal diseases talked about on this page, those suffering from Crohn’s disease, often need to frequent the restroom. This process can often feel like a chore, and with the use of toilet paper can be painful, as the skin becomes raw. Bidets allow this process to be more comforting and gentle, making the whole experience more bearable.
Benefits for Women:
During menstruation, blood and vaginal mucus can build up. While toilet paper can help to clear some of this away, it still leaves some behind. This can cause odors, and be uncomfortable.
A bidet can effectively eliminate vaginal odor during menstruation. Bidets also offer a more tender, sensitive cleaning experience, making it perfect during this tough time of the month.
For these same reasons, a bidet can be very beneficial for those with yeast infections as well. Bidets can cure a yeast infection, but it can make the process of getting over a yeast infection much more comfortable, and less embarrassing.
Help during pregnancy:
Pregnancy puts a strain on the body. This strain can often cause hemorrhoids, which as we’ve talked about above can be painful and uncomfortable. Bidets can help sooth the pain and irritation caused by hemorrhoids, unlike toilet paper which simply exacerbates the problem.
Pregnancy often makes simple things more difficult, making it harder to reach when using toilet paper. A bidet helps solve this problem by offering an optimal cleansing experience quickly with the press of a button.
Tenderness often occurs after birth. This tenderness can make the simple act of using toilet paper painful. a bidet can help to solve this with a tender water stream. Some bidets offer a feature called aeration, which infuses air bubbles into the water stream. This process makes the wash cycle even more gentle, and a warm air dry, and you’re able to have a pain free experience.
There are medical many benefits to using a bidet. Bidets are tender and gentle where toilet paper isn’t. They offer a better, more hygienic cleaning experience than toilet paper can offer. Bidets can also help stimulate bowel movements for those with constipation. And for those with mobility loss, bidets can help regain freedom and dignity by allowing you to use the bathroom on your own. These are just a few of the great reasons to get a bidet seat, so what are you waiting for?
