Certain countries have their people fishing to lead up on toilet paper, there are even fights that are happening at super markets. There is an option though, that is hygienic and will reduce fear and panic of those who struggle to stock up and hoard toilet paper.

Right from the time of evolution, humans washed their butts with water from rivers, lakes, the sea etc., and time progressed, and washrooms were set up, water was still the medium to wash one’s butt.

Using water to clean yourself after pooping, helps you clean better, and more thoroughly. A lot of people don’t Like to touch their poop, but remember, your large intestine is actually carrying that same poop which you may not like to touch, its in you, in your body. Either ways, use toilet paper if you must, but be open to the use of water which is a great healthy alternative, plus we save a lot of paper, in turn trees. It’s good for our planet and good for your butt too .

I’ve had several patients globally who have anal fissures, piles etc. and using toilet paper aggravates the pain and the condition, when we switch them to water, there is an immediate improvement in the condition and relief from pain.

All you need is a mug, fill it with water, pour it from behind and use the other hands fingers to gently clean yourself. Don’t forget to wash your hands well with soap post that. It may take you a day or two to get used to it, but after that, it will become a habit. You can also install a hand wall jet spray or a budget.

Give it a shot, you have nothing to lose, and yeah you’ll save a lot of money too.
