is it good or bad?
Most often, enemas
are used as a solution for those suffering from constipation.
Sometimes, however, people use enemas as a way to "clean out"
their colons. Sometimes medical exams have to be performed,
such as colonoscopies, where it is necessary to clean out the
colon to the point that it can be easily viewed. laxatives,
and/or enemas may be used in these cases.
Enemas may be used on
ren as well as
adults. They can be purchased ready-to-use without a
prescription in adult or pediatric size. Enemas can be
beneficial if they are used when needed and not in excess.
First of all, people
show know when they are constipated and when they aren't.
Constipation is defined as having less than three bowel
movements per week. Every person does not have a bowel movement
every day and some have two or three daily. Either of these is
normal since we all are different. If you have three or more
bowel movements a week, then you shouldn't be treating yourself
Some people put off
having bowel movements because they don't want to go to the
bathroom somewhere besides their own homes. Children often put
off the urge to go when they are doing something they enjoy and
don't want to stop. This habit of ignoring the urge to go can
not only lead to constipation, it can cause you to stop
having the urge.
Over use of enemas
can also cause you to lose the urge to go. If you let your body
get addicted to enemas, it will let them take over. You will no
longer get the urge when you need to have a bowel movement and,
in fact, the muscles will lose strength.
Enemas are meant to
be a temporary solution to a temporary problem with
constipation. Using in excess as some people do to clean out
the colon can cause an imbalance of electrolytes and some of
the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
Since a lack of fiber
in the diet is often the cause of constipation, you should
consider altering your diet before you start a regular regimen
with enemas. Colon cleansing kits use fiber to "flush out"
dried fecal matter because it is what keeps waste moving
through the colon and keeps it clean normally.
If you do find that
you need to use an enema, use them in moderation. They are a
relief when you do need them, but downright dangerous if you
