90% of people use tap water to prepare for bottoming
Tap water (hypotonic) and store-bought enemas (hypertonic) cause significant cellular damage to cells inside your bottom
Isotonic solutions do not disrupt these cells—they simply rinse
90% of people who use tap water to prepare to bottom, but what happens when the solution you use comes in contact with the cells inside your bottom, or the mucous membrane?
Let’s start with the basics. Tap water is considered a ‘hypotonic’ (more dilute) solution, while an enema is a hypertonic (more concentrated) solution than your body. This means they are on polar opposites of the spectrum of what is the normal concentration for your body, so both induce similar cellular destruction.
So, where on the spectrum should your solution be? The answer: isotonic. It’s a state which allows for the free movement of water across a cell’s membrane, without changing the concentration of its solutes.
When it comes to preparing, isotonic solutions are balanced: they don’t draw electrolytes from the body, nor draw water into the body. It lets your preparation to truly cleanse, rather than stripping your butt of its essentials.
