What Is a Yogurt Enema?

What Is a Yogurt Enema?

Many people are not aware that the body needs bacteria in our digestive system in order to function at its best.

Probiotics are live bacteria that nurtures the body. In fact, the colon contains billions of good bacteria that has a huge role in the function of the digestive system, immune system, and many others. A proper balance of these bacteria in the colon is necessary to lower the risk of inflammation, fend off digestive problems, and boost nutrient absorption.

The main goal of administering a probiotic enema is to inject probiotics directly into the colon. If you are interested in trying probiotic enemas, you must consider a yogurt enema solution! Yogurt is very easy to make in the comfort of your home and is rich in nutritional benefits. See to it that you make your own solution or use active culture yogurt.

Yogurt enemas are helpful to people suffering from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or ulcerative colitis. This enema is getting more popular these days. It is believed to be an alternative solution for gut health, weight loss, and digestive problems.

What are the potential health benefits?



People who tried a yogurt enema claim that it helps reduce the bad bacteria and promote good bacteria in the colon.

In contrast to consuming probiotics orally, a probiotic enema is a more effective way because it injects the probiotics directly into the colon. Doing so prevents the live bacteria from coming across stomach acid (which may destroy about 60 percent probiotics).

 Advocates of probiotic enemas claim that they also experience numerous health benefits, such as:

  • weight loss
  • increased metabolism
  • boosted immune system

In addition, probiotic enemas play a huge role in treating digestive issues, including constipation, diarrhea, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and UC (ulcerative colitis).

Nevertheless, keep in mind that different strains of probiotics have different effects in the body, especially because each person possesses a unique collection of body microorganisms. For this reason, the effect of probiotics are not the same for each person.

What are the possible risks?

A yogurt enema carries potential risks for people with weak immune systems, such as seniors. Even though probiotics are good for the body, they may result in an infection if a person’s immune system is very weak.

Enemas that are not administered by a health professional come with risks. If it is your first time to try an enema, it may result in infection, rectal pain, or diarrhea.

If you want to try an enema, talk to a health professional and ask what type of probiotic and enema kit you can use.
