Dealing with hemorrhoids – what are they, what causes them and how to treat them
Dealing with hemorrhoids – what are they, what causes them and how to treat them

Ask anyone who’s ever suffered from hemorrhoids and you’re bound to get pretty consistent responses: uncomfortable, embarrassing, painful and even debilitating. However, one word that will probably be missing from the description is “common.” According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, or NIDDK for short, an astounding 75% of Americans over the age of 45 have hemorrhoids.

Now that we know that hemorrhoids are common, what exactly are they? Hemorrhoids are a condition that occurs when veins around the anus or just inside the anus become distended and inflamed. The symptoms – while not usually dangerous – can be extremely irritating. These include: itching, rectal bleeding and even severe pain. Most often hemorrhoids are noticed as bright red streaks on toilet paper but blood can also be found on the stool, underwear or even in the toilet bowl.

Common causes of hemorrhoids are prolonged sitting, straining at the stool, stress, constipation and irritants in the diet. They are also common during pregnancy due to the pressure from the fetus in the abdomen and the hormonal changes that cause blood vessels to enlarge. Obesity, chronic diarrhea and anal intercourse can also lead to hemorrhoids. If you or a loved one is dealing with hemorrhoids there’s good news: most hemorrhoids disappear on their own after a few days. However, there are others can persist becoming hard and painful and even require surgery!
There are a number of conventional therapies for hemorrhoids. Many of these are well known such as dietary changes and over-the-counter remedies such stool softener and others. Dr. Andrew Weil, the renowned Harvard doctor and alternative therapy evangelist, offers a number of non-traditional therapies including: taking triphala supplements, a combination of three bowel tonifying herbs from the Ayurvedic tradition, applying aloe vera gel to the afflicted are and sitz baths. Sitz baths are when one sits in a bathtub with enough warm water to cover the anal area for fifteen minutes several times a day. While sitz baths may be a recommended and effective treatment for hemorrhoids, it may not be feasible or efficient for people without bathtubs or even time to perform several times a day.

We here at Superior Bidet also agree with Dr. Weil about the healing effects of water for the treatment and soothing effects on hemorrhoids. However, we have an effective, low-cost way to use water to treat hemorrhoids: the attachable bidet. For less than $80 and 20 minutes of your time, you can purchase and install any of our Superior Bidet models.

Wiping for Dummies – How to Properly Wipe After Going to the Bathroom
Wiping for Dummies – How to Properly Wipe After Going to the Bathroom

An interesting thing happens when you type “how to properly wipe” into the Google search bar. It is followed by the words “after pooping.” You would think that this would be something most people would already know how to do. However, we think this reflects a more common problem than most people care to admit. Further still, we think the problem is not with the user but with the tool. That is, cleaning oneself with toilet paper is neither hygienic nor effective.

Not only is proper toilet wiping a common Google search item, but many lifestyle publications are tackling the topic as well. While some of these articles are humorous (after all, it is potty humor!), they also address the real problem many people face when trying to clean themselves effectively.

So, maybe the question shouldn’t be: how does one properly wipe after going to the bathroom? Perhaps the real question is: how can you feel “shower-clean” after going to the bathroom? The answer is simple: use water! For less than $100 and 15 minutes of your time, you can install one of our Superior Bidet attachments and use the gentle cleaning action of water to completely transform your daily toilet hygiene. Once you use our product once, we are 100% convinced you will never go back to wiping! We’re so sure of this that if you purchase one of our models and are not 100% satisfied, you can return your bidet for a full refund – no questions asked! So join the “never-wipe-again” revolution and experience the clean that only a Superior Bidet can deliver!

How America Needs to Ditch Paper for Water for its Toilet Hygiene Needs
How America Needs to Ditch Paper for Water for its Toilet Hygiene Needs

We’ve Been Living in the Dark Ages! – How America Needs to Ditch Paper for Water for its Toilet Hygiene Needs

We are living in interesting times. The pace of technological innovation has increased dramatically and the adoption of new technologies has had a positive impact not only our life expectancy, but on the quality of our lives as well. In only the last hundred years, at least 90% of American homes adopted stoves, electricity, cars, fridges, clothes washers, air-conditioning, color TV, microwaves, and cell phones, to name a few. One place where innovation has been largely absent has been in our bathrooms, especially when it comes to our toilet hygiene.
Since antiquity, humans have been using all kinds of items and methods to clean themselves. In 1857 a New York entrepreneur by the name of Joseph Gayetty invented the predecessor to the toilet paper: aloe-infused sheets of manila hemp dispensed from Kleenex-like boxes. Unfortunately for Gayetty, consumers were slow to adopt the product and soon became accustomed to wiping with the Sears Roebuck catalog – that is until the catalog began to be printed on glossy paper. Ouch! It wasn’t until 1890 that two brothers by the names of Clarence and E. Irvin Scott popularized the toilet paper roll and it became a mainstay of American toilet hygiene. In other words, we have been cleaning ourselves in a similar manner for over 125 years! We ditched the horse-and-buggy for the automobile around that time. We should do the same with toilet paper!
The perfect replacement for toilet paper is the attachable bidet. Bidets use an adjustable stream of water instead of paper to clean the nether regions. Imagine feeling “shower-clean” after every trip to the bathroom! For less than $100 and 15 minutes of your time, you can install one of our Superior Bidet attachments and completely transform your daily toilet hygiene. Once you use our product once, we are 100% convinced you will never go back to wiping! We’re so sure of this that if you purchase one of our models and are not 100% satisfied, you can return your bidet for a full refund – no questions asked! So get out of the Dark Ages and experience the clean that only a Superior Bidet can deliver!

Crocodile Dundee is one of the most loved and successful movies of the 1980’s. One of the main plot lines of the story relates to how Mick, the main character and Australian “cowboy” of the Outback, encounters and ultimately adjusts to the “strange conventions of civilization.” In the clip above, Mick encounters a bidet for the first time in the bathroom of the fancy Plaza Hotel in New York. This hilarious scene, where Mick tinkers with the device while his companion Sue awkwardly attempts to explain to him what a bidet is, highlights two main issues with bidets in America: lack of familiarity with the product and a generalized discomfort with talking openly about matters relating to toilet hygiene.

Although the scene above occurs in New York City, with the exception of very high-end hotels, bidet or bidet toilet attachments are largely absent from most American bathrooms. This runs contrary to many countries, particularly in Asia, Europe and South America, where people are have embraced and highly reliant on bidets for toilet hygiene. Researchers have attempted to understand this phenomenon including Harvey Molotch, a New York University professor of social cultural analysis and the author of the 2003 book “Where Stuff Comes From: How Toasters, Toilets, Cars, Computers and Many Other Things Come to Be as They Are.” His contention is that the American public’s rejection of the bidet is related to its association with sexuality.

The bidet, which was invented by French furniture makers in the early 18th century, was rejected by Victorian English consumers, who deemed the imports as tainted with hedonism and sexuality. According to Professor Molotch, that sentiment traveled to America, where incidences such as public protests over installation of bidets in upscale hotels in Manhattan, demonstrated the American public’s moral uneasiness with the device. That sentiment was only reinforced during World War II, when American soldiers encountered bidets in European brothels, perpetuating the idea that bidets where associated with immorality.

This view however seems to be slowly changing as Americans travel more, immigration exposes Americans to new customs and issues of sexuality are discussed more in the mainstream media. This appears to be making Americans more comfortable with bidets. The National Kitchen and Bath Association kept statistics on bidets for the first time in 2006, and according to Ed Pell, the group’s manager of market research, of the 5.3 million bathrooms built in the United States that year, more than 650,000 included one. Ultimately, the proof is in the pudding: almost without fail, most people who give bidets/bidet attachments a try become hooked for life; many of them even become fanatical. My favorite reaction to an American bidet user comes from David Sax, a writer for online publication Good, where he waxes poetically on his devotion to the bidet:

“I am a fan of the bidet toilet seat. No, wait, not a fan. That’s too mild a term. I have been a fanatical, unquestioning devotee of the bidet toilet seat since the first time I used one in a hotel in Japan. It is my water closet’s personal messiah, the pinnacle of my morning constitutional. I have lived two lives: the itchy wilderness before my bidet toilet seat and the garden of delights that followed. When I am on vacation without it, I feel cast back into the desert, with nothing to clean myself with but squares of paper. In those moments, I feel no better than a filthy savage.”

So, what are you waiting for? Join the bidet revolution and feel the cleanest you’ve ever felt in your life!

Bidets During Pregnancy, How Do I Love Thee! Let Me Count the Ways
Bidets During Pregnancy, How Do I Love Thee! Let Me Count the Ways

The Bidet is an excellent ally in daily personal hygiene for people of all ages and walks of life. Most bathrooms do not have standalone bidets however there are toilet attachable bidets which offer the same benefits for a fraction of the price. Installation is straightforward and does not require specialized knowledge or tools. Your attachable bidet can be fully operational and ready for use in under 20 minutes.

Never does a bidet provide more relief or cleanliness than during pregnancy. Bidets thoroughly cleanse body parts associated with urination and defecation. Many women also develop hemorrhoids during pregnancy, which can cause painful discomfort due to the enlargement of the perineum. With the ability to control water pressure and temperature, pregnant women can adjust the bidet to provide the most soothing, comfortable experience possible.

During the later stages of pregnancy, as the womb expands, it becomes increasingly difficult to twist and flex in order to wipe following a bowel movement. Attachable bidets eliminate the need to maneuver as the positioning of the nozzle easily targets the affected area removing any fecal matter all while sitting in a normal, confortable position on the toilet. Additionally, bidets with dual nozzles such as Superior Bidet’s Supreme model easily remove excess vaginal discharge and urine with the turn of a dial.

The bidet’s usefulness does not end during pregnancy, as its benefits continue into postpartum. Bleeding and discharge commonly experienced during recovery can effectively be cleaned through daily bidet use. The genital region, which can become tender after delivery either through natural or cesarean births, can be relieved by the gentle washing action of the bidet. Bidets can also eliminate the need for paper products that can contribute to even more inflammation and pain. From pregnancy through motherhood, bidets offer sanitary and therapeutic benefits unmatched by any other product available to expecting and new mothers.

The Advantages of a Bidet for the Elderly
The Advantages of a Bidet for the Elderly

Personal hygiene is important yet can be difficult to support in old age. Physical limitations caused by muscular deterioration and reduction in flexibility are fairly common. Senior citizens may suffer from arthritis, decreased bone density and chaffed skin, making it difficult to cleanse after using the bathroom. Bidets are a godsend to senior citizens seeking easier and better hygiene health. Bidets require little dexterity to use yet deliver better results than toilet paper. The use of water to cleanse also yields potential benefits for a variety of health issues such as hemorrhoids, diarrhea and incontinence.

The passage of time generates wear and tear on human skin. As such, seniors are more likely to develop hemorrhoids as a result of constipation and are more vulnerable to irritation especially in bathroom use. Microtears from toilet paper use is common in many individuals but the elderly are even more vulnerable due to the higher sensitivity of their skin. Bidets are an effective alternative to the traditional use of paper; which can cause breaks in the skin and increased swelling. Diarrhea is another typical complaint raised by many seniors. Bidets can help alleviate this problem by reducing the need to wipe and by offering a soothing, heated stream of water to cleanse these easily inflamed areas.

Arthritis affects the majority of the elderly population and can be relieved by using special models of bidets, such as; the Superior Bidet Supreme; which includes a warm-water feature. This unique model has the capability of altering the direction, force and temperature of the water, as well as, adjusting the temperature of the bidet’s seat by using the convenient three-button remote. Another model, the Swash 300, gives the user the ability of changing the seat and water temperatures to suit the every preference.
One major area of discomfort afflicting elderly women in particular is incontinence. It can be exceptionally embarrassing but also potentially harmful to women’s health if the urine has not been thoroughly removed from the genitals, as it can lead to bacterial infections. Bidets provide an effective and refreshing solution to this common gender-related issue. The Superior Bidet Supreme is an excellent choice for women, since it features a specialized option for feminine cleansing.

Restricted movement is an especially concerning dilemma for the elderly and in many cases requires personal aid for assistance in cleaning. The use of paper products for wiping can damage the sensitive skin of the elderly. Bidets can help alleviate the pain and limited range of motion involved in the cleansing process. The bidet is equipped with controls that make it safer and easier for senior citizens to maintain their independence and cleanliness. This allows them to use the bidet’s gentle water flow to meet their personal hygiene needs, instead of relying on someone else to physically scrub and bathe the genital and anal area. A new sense of self-confidence and dignity can therefore be restored with this useful device.

Bidets come in a wide variety of styles and models to suit any and all of the aforementioned medical treatments and conditions for the elderly. Once the consumer has experienced the comfort and numerous benefits of this convenient, reliable and effective product, then they will never want to rely on paper as the product of choice again.
