Bidets Provide a Gentle and Soothing Solution

With chronic gastro-inflammatory afflictions, many are forced to use the restroom far more than the average person, and some may find themselves at the toilet exponentially more often during flare-ups. This means, not only are they experiencing bowel and intestinal discomfort, but they may also be damaging tissue and skin with harsh, abrasive toilet paper or wipes.

Brondell’s modern electronic bidet toilet seats and bidet attachments offer a gentle, soothing alternative to wiping and can spell instant relief for those suffering the complications and residual effects of digestive diseases. By washing users with warm or cool water, bidets effectively clean much better than their paper counterparts too, reducing the risks of infection from fissures or bleeding – which are common problems for those who may be wiping too frequently.

Bidets Provide a Gentle and Soothing Solution

Loss of Mobility

Loss of mobility, both temporary and permanent, can be painful, frustrating and often times make it difficult to perform everyday functions that were once very easy, such as going to the bathroom. Partial or total mobility loss may result from conditions such as arthritis, broken bones, Dupuytren's disease and hernia and rectal surgery. Over 70 million Americans have some form of arthritis or joint inflammation, often translating to a serious debility. In addition, Dupuytren's disease, an abnormal thickening of tissue beneath the skin in the palm of the hand, may eventually limit movement.

The Swash allows people suffering from conditions such as these to regain the comfort and dignity of using the toilet by themselves.

Benefits for Hemorrhoid Sufferers

Hemorrhoids are veins that swell and protrude around the anus. The symptoms may include a painful burning sensation, itching, swelling and even bleeding. As many as 10 million Americans suffer from hemorrhoids; most of them between the ages of 45 and 65, but over half the population will experience them at some point in their lives. The good news is you can now find hemorrhoid relief without resorting to surgery!

The Swash eliminates the need for abrasive toilet paper when using the toilet. The warm water jet and warm air dryer clean and dry the user, providing great relief from symptoms such as tenderness and irritation. Whereas sufferers with traditional toilets often dread going to the bathroom and try to wait as long as possible (causing further complications), Swash owners may actually look forward to using the toilet because it is a pleasant, soothing experience.

Relief for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Incontinence

Skin care is very important for incontinent patients and those with IBS; however, cleaning with toilet paper or soap can dry and irritate anal tissue. The Swash allows multiple washings without the increased skin abrasion and irritation caused by other methods.

Help for the Discomfort of Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease causes inflammation and irritation in various parts on the gastrointestinal tract. With this condition can come a frequent need to use the toilet. The Brondell Swash allows complete and gentle cleansing after each bowel movement without harsh, abrasive toilet paper.

Medical Benefits for Women


The Swash provides an effective and natural way to eliminate vaginal odor throughout the month, and it is particularly useful during a period. Menstrual flow is not simply blood; it also contains cervical and vaginal mucus and degenerated endometrial particles. When this fluid comes in contact with bacteria in the air, it begins to decompose and can become odiferous. The gentle cleansing of the feminine wash rinses the area clean, removes any odor and helps to make what can be an uncomfortable time of the month a little more pleasant. In addition, the Swash and its dual wand system also serve to keep the rectal area clean.

Yeast Infections

Yeast infections can cause itching, discharge and unpleasant odor. While the Swash can't cure a yeast infection, it can provide soothing relief from the symptoms while treatment is being received from a gynecologist or over the counter medications.


The Swash is ideal for pregnant women for many reasons:

    1. Hemorrhoids -- Due to increased weight gain during pregnancy, women often develop hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are veins that swell and protrude around the anus. The symptoms are a painful burning sensation, itching, swelling and bleeding. Toilet paper often exacerbates hemorrhoid symptoms. The Swash's warm water posterior wash and air dryer eliminate the need for abrasive toilet paper and keep the affected area clean and dry, providing comfort and relief from tenderness and irritation.
    2. Lack of Mobility - The changing shape and increased weight gain during pregnancy can make it awkward and difficult for expecting mothers to thoroughly clean themselves. The Swash's dual wand system provides excellent cleansing in both the feminine and posterior area.
    3. Cleanliness Before, During and After Delivery -- Women need extra help with cleanliness during pregnancy. Before the baby comes, women can experience the loss of the plug of mucus, water breaking and loss of amniotic fluid. The gentle cleansing of the Swash provides comfort and relief.

With an array of modern bidet options ranging from luxurious, spa-like electronic bidet seats, complete with adjustable water temps, heated seats, and multi-temp air dryers for a totally touch-free experience, to affordable and effective bidet attachments, many patients who have Crohn’s and colitis have found the perfect solution to fit their particular needs and condition.

Aside from being an excellent aid for the management of digestive diseases, the benefits of bidets also extend to women concerned about feminine hygiene during pregnancy and people who have mobility issues. And they are a godsend for people suffering from hemorrhoids.
