Most people want to know how to use enema. They may be concerned about the insertion of an OTC enema or Enema fleet nozzle, or have questions about how long it will take for the enema to work. Questions about how to use enema may involve disrupting healthy intestinal bacteria. You may also have concerns about whether an enema will disrupt the intestinal micro biome. If the individual has recently taken an antibiotic or chemotherapy, he or she may need to restore healthy bacteria in the large intestine.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the average human has trillions of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal micro biome. Although some bacteria will be released with the stool after an enema, it will not affect the bacteria safely nestled in the intestinal mucosal lining.
If your healthcare provider orders a home enema for constipation or to treat your condition, make sure to follow instructions exactly as they are given. He or she may recommend using a little petroleum jelly to lubricate the anus before inserting the enema nozzle. He or she may also recommend that you drink plenty of clear liquids for a period of time before taking an enema to assist with the process.
Enemas, such as the well-known Bucket Enema System, treat constipation by introducing fluid into the intestines through the rectum. The liquid softens impacted stool, while the enema nozzle loosens the rectum. That combination will stimulate a large bowel movement allowing you to evacuate the contents of your bowels.
Every day, we’re bombarded with toxins: additives in the food we eat, pollution in the air we breathe, the water our bodies need to live, and also chemicals in the products we put on our bodies. The overabundance of common impurities that we all encounter can overwhelm our natural ability to detoxify. It no wonder that many of these toxins find their way into the liver, kidneys, intestines, and colon. Colon cleansing is a easy and simple way to flush your body and recharge your overall well-being, and cleansing the colon can boost your natural self-healing and detox mechanisms.
There are three common enema positions:
Whichever position you choose, make sure you can reach your anus easily. If you find you cannot reach your anus in any of the positions, you may have to get assistance with your enema.
Refrain from administering your enema sitting on the toilet or standing up. These positions don’t allow liquid to flow into the entire colon, where you’re fighting gravity to retain the solution.
With the variety of enema’s available on the market, it’s always good to understand the various types available. It’s also best to ask your doctor if you have questions about the best type of enema for you. Typically, your doctor will recommend one of the following types of enemas:
Your doctor, nurse, or healthcare professional may deliver the enema or he or she may recommend an enema to be done at home. In either case, you can always ask the professional how to administer the enema for peace of mind and understanding. One thing to note is avoid overuse of enemas. Ask your provider’s advice about the type and frequency of enema use in your situation.
There are two types of home enemas:
Examples of cleansing enemas (added to water per enema kit instructions):
Examples of retention enemas (added to water per enema kit instructions):
Each enema requires a slightly different method, but the results for each will be wonderful. When a smaller amount of liquid is retained permanently, we prefer to call this an implant. One cup of liquid with a probiotic, minerals, or something green with chlorophyll (like wheat grass) makes an excellent implant. You’ll quickly be on your way to a happier, healthier colon.
