Chronic Constipation Relief

In the U.S.A. alone, over 2 million patients visit their physician each year in search of chronic constipation relief. The associated cost of such visits is astronomical, reaching hundreds of millions of dollars annually. For those affected by some form of constipation they often experience three or less stools per week. In extreme cases patients may only have one stool per week.

The Origins of Spaloo

I often get asked just how the Spaloo company came to be? People ask what are the origins of Spaloo? After all, bringing a toilet seat that is popular overseas to an American market is not only risky, but well… involves a little different line of “business” than most folks are used to. Let’s face it, some Americans don’t even know what a bidet toilet seat is, let alone how much more sanitary, eco-friendly and effective using one is than toilet paper.

So, yes… I took on a challenge to market a product in America that is not generally socially accepted. But, that’s ok. My job is to educate everyone about the benefits (and there are many) of a Spaloo. Read more

Bathroom Humor…

Last night I was out to dinner with some friends, and was introduced to a bunch of new acquaintances. Inevitably, the question came up, “What do you do for a living?” Typically, I see my wife cringe with fear, hoping that the asker has fully prepared themselves for my answer, and maintains an open mind.

But, certainly, there are the unexpected reactions, quizzical glances, and awkward silences that ensue. Let’s just say that when I explain Spaloo and what it does, I sometimes get mixed reactions.

No One Likes To Talk About Constipation

Being in the toilet bidet seat business, sometimes you have to talk about some unpleasant topics. Trust me, my jokes are often considered “toilet humor”, and my “small talk” often has no boundaries. No one likes to talk about constipation. While not too many people can talk about things relating to going the bathroom, for me, it’s no problem at all. After all, I have built my business around other people’s business. As long as people continue to use a toilet, I have a marketplace for my Spaloo toilet bidet seat. Something tells me that I’ve picked a pretty safe target market.

Senior Caregivers: You Must Read This

Anyone who has ever had to take care of a loved one in their aging years knows that it is no easy job. In many cases, there can sometimes be a role reversal, where the parent becomes the child, and the child becomes the parent. This can be a very trying and emotional time for any family.

According to a study released from the AARP as reported in USA Today, an estimated 34 million Americans serve as unpaid senior caregivers for other adults, usually elderly relatives, and they spend an average 21 hours a week helping out.
