Just the sound of the word hemorrhoids makes me shudder. They cause searing pain that gets so bad sometimes the person who has hemorrhoids can barely sit (or worse yet, they have to sit on one of those donut-cushion things).

I sincerely hope that you never get them, but the odds may not be with you. Most Americans suffer with itching, burning, nasty hemorrhoids at some point in their lives, at least 75% of us. But the good news is there are steps you can take right now to prevent hemorrhoids. I'll go into those in a moment.

First let's look at some of the problems associated with getting hemorrhoids.

The biggest problem, of course, is the everyday discomfort, the soreness and pain when you wipe with toilet paper. Other side effects include bleeding and itching. It's so embarrassing when you are in a crowed place and your butt is itching so bad that you have to scratch. Nothing like "butt-on-fire" to ruin a day.

And you may know that scratching makes the symptoms even worse. It can be an endless cycle.

On top of that you will have a hard time getting to sleep because your butt itches so bad. This means lots of sleepless nights, which make it harder for your body to heal.

So why do we get hemorrhoids?

First off let me say that I am not a medical Doctor and I am not qualified to give medical advice, but what I can share with you is what I have personally experienced and what a whole lot of other people have told me what there experience is in dealing with hemorrhoids.

Probably the biggest reason people get hemorrhoids is due to straining when going to the bathroom. This pressure will cause the veins to expand and over time make your life miserable with the awful symptoms of hemorrhoids.

Next is what I call the dreaded toilet paper and if you have hemorrhoids, you know exactly what I am talking about. Toilet paper will not help your hemorrhoids, it will make them worse. I cannot tell you 100% that using toilet paper will give you hemorrhoids, but I do believe based on my own experience and the feed back I get from customers, is that it is possible for some people to get hemorrhoids from toilet paper use.

Toilet paper is very rough and often time has chemicals that will irritate your skin and veins and cause other problems like bleeding, itching and rashes. So as you can see I am not a big fan of toilet paper and for a very good reason, it is a pain in the ass, so to speak.

How do we prevent or care for hemorrhoids?

The first thing you can do, is to get yourself more regular is by taking more fiber. This will help tremendously. The webMD says women need 25 grams a day and men need 38 grams a day and most people are only getting 15 grams a day, which is not near enough.

Here is a link on the article about fiber How much fiber do you need?. Fiber has numerous other benefits to the body and a very good thing for your heart, so make a commitment and do something about it today, in other words, take care of yourself and your family will love for it.

Fiber is obviously not going to take care of any problems associated with toilet paper, but a bidet toilet seat will make a huge difference in your life. Using a bidet will help keep the problems from starting in the first place and if you already have them, then you can say buy buy to them with the regular use of a bidet seat. I know it seems crazy, but I've seen it over and over again.

So you ask me, how am I qualified to make this type of statement about bidets? First I have been selling them for over 6 years and am an 8 year user. Before using a bidet, I had hemorrhoids. But the bleeding and itching stopped after just few days of using a bidet seat. And to this day, I am still hemorrhoid, itching and bleeding free and so are a lot of my customers.

The really funny thing about bidets are, a lot of Americans are still "willy nilly" about bidets. If this is you, I would say, get over it, it’s all in your head, most people around the world use water to clean themselves and understand how important it is.

For example over 75% of Japanese people use a bidet seat in there homes (what they call a washlet) on a daily bases and most public places and business have them as well. I have been told by a lot of people in Japan that most people don’t get hemorrhoids because of bidet use, I don't know that for a fact, but that is what I have been told.

My mother-in-law is in a care home in Osaka Japan and my wife and I go to see her twice a year. The care home that she stays in has a bidet on every toilet. I asked the head care nurse why do they have bidets and this is what she told me:

Bidets are becoming the necessities in nursing facilities in Japan. The government subsidizes the purchase of bidets to people who need care. Some old people, however, even pay for them from their own pockets. The reason I recommend bidets is for the prevention of infection, rash, hemorrhoids, itchiness, cleanliness and for the bowel movement by the stimulation.

These people tend to get rash and easily get an infection. My husband, for example, seems to use it every day to ease a bowel movement.

I would say that bidets are necessities in nursing facilities and make life easier for our patients and takes a big burden off of the care givers who help them when going to the bathroom.

Okay I hope that helps you understand how important having a bidet toilet seat in your bathroom will be and what a big game changer it will be and make your life more enjoyable, clean and fresh.
