Talking Sh*t with TUSHY and The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation

In May, we start talking sh*t for Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month. By talking sh*t, we mean it’s time to stop being embarrassed about talking about poop. TUSHY, a modern bidet company, has teamed up the with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation to raise awareness about these diseases that plague so many Americans.


Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis affect more than 1.6 million Americans. That’s one in every 200 Americans living with one of these debilitating, medically incurable diseases. The fastest growing patient population is children under the age of 18. Patients can be diagnosed at any age, but are most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 35. While Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus, ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon) and rectum. Symptoms of these diseases may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, debilitating fatigue, and extreme weight loss. Many patients experience numerous hospitalizations. About 23 to 45 percent of people with ulcerative colitis and up to 75 percent of people with Crohn’s disease will eventually require surgical intervention for their disease.


Although considerable progress has been made in IBD research, researchers still don’t yet know what causes this disease. Foreign substances in the environment may be the direct cause of the inflammation, or they may stimulate the body's defenses to produce an inflammation that continues without control. Researchers believe that once an IBD patient's immune system is "turned on," it does not know how to properly "turn off" at the right time. As a result, inflammation damages the intestine and causes the symptoms of IBD. That is why the main goal of medical therapy is to help patients regulate their immune system better.

However, there is still no cure. That is why TUSHY wants to give back in the best way we know how. By cleaning butts! Bidets have proven to provide Crohn’s and Colitis patients with immense relief and comfort in dealing with their symptoms. Plus it cleans way better.
