Why Bidets are Best to Combat Haemorrhoids

Bidets have become popular in America only recently but they have been used all over the world due to comfort and better hygiene they offer. Their therapeutic value for people who suffer from Haemorrhoids is matchless. They not only reduce the effects of haemorrhoids but also ease the pain of haemorrhoids in a natural manner.

Haemorrhoids results from the dilation or swelling of veins under the rectum or around the anus which could be due to constant pressure in the rectal area and often results from repeated straining of bowel movement.

Following factors increase the risk for getting haemorrhoids:

  1. Constipation
  2. Low dietary fibre intake
  3.  Obesity I due to Pregnancy and delivery
  4. Diarrhoea
  5. Overexertion due to standing or sitting for long hours every day.

Common Symptoms of haemorrhoids

  1. Rectal bleeding
  2. Rectal tenderness and/or itching
  3. Painful bowel movements
  4. Mucous discharge after bowel movement

How does Bidet Help

A Bidet System reduces the swelling, irritation and even bleeding with the help of steady diffused spray of warm water to the affected area as it shrinks the membrane and soothes the aggravated tissues surrounding the rectum. Maintaining complete hygiene helps in keeping infections at bay which may add to the agony of haemorrhoids.

The regular use of bidet not only improves the hygiene instantly but also helps in combating constipation. It relieves the constipation without the use of messy creams or suppositories which are not only unpleasant to use but in most cases utterly ineffective.

Toilet paper can add to the irritation and is not sufficient for effective cleaning. Some doctors believe that chemicals added to the toilet paper for colour and scent is responsible for irritation. Even the softest toilet paper is harsh as compared to bubbly and warm water spray from a bidet and not even half as effective. In fact, cleaning by direct water has been recommended over the use of moist pads by doctors who believe that ingredients of these pads may cause allergy, further aggravating the discomfort.

Basic Bidet, a leading bidet shop, offers a wide range of high quality, electric and non-electric bidets to help enhance personal hygiene to everyone including children, senior citizens, people with physical handicap and Haemorrhoids.
