Chat here about how often you take an enema. Do you take enemas every day, once a week, monthly, quarterly. How often do you think it is safe to take an enema?

I made a similar post on the "quantity" thread but thought that frequency was a good topic for consideration too.

I strive for a reasonable interval that allows "normalizing" within my colon by doing a somewhat thorough series with a coffee implant every week to ten days, schedule permitting. I've observed the pros and cons of frequency for many years and this seems ideal for me. My objectives are regualr colon function between cleansings and this is what I experience on this interval when I am home. Travel can be another matter as many of us know. Sometimes I have to extend longer when travel is an issue and I travel very frequently. I've often noticed that by two weeks I don't feel as well as I am accustomed to and begin to experience headaches and cold like symptoms that I never have otherwise.

Conversely I think it is entirely possible to over do it. I've also fallen into stressful periods in my life where I found myself resorting to enemas several times a week where my system didn't have a chance to re-establish itself. The problems are often less obvious than not having normal colon function between cleansings.(Diet while re-establishing is very important and a thread could easily be established on this topic too) You can completely upset intestinal flora and rob your body of essential nutrients in foods by daily enemas or colonics. There are no doubt healing protocols tht call for this kind of frequency initially but it clearly can't be a good thing all the time. I'm getting out of my league in this area and Kristina could (or likely has elsewhere) vocalize on the problems inherent to over doing it.

Now that I am retired, and live alone, I take enemas when ever the mood strikes me. So on the average I take enemas between two and three times a week. There are times during the summer that I will have an enema two or three days in a row as my apartment is so nice and warm. Now that winter is just around the corner, and the weather is getting colder, it is now two or thee times a week. When I do take enemas, it is usually more than one and go for a series of two or three. In the past I have taken as many as eight 1-1/2 quart enemas, one right after the other, and found that I was completely cleaned out. It was fun doing that many enemas as they were so comfortable and easy to hold. I took them on my bed and over a period of about two hours. Most enemas are between 2-1/2 quarts and three quarts.

I find a small enema daily is great. I usually use a shower nozzel, hose mounted, and can shoot a few cups of warm water up inside with out inserting the hose. I had a tumor removed from my lower colon 23 years ago and believe the surgery left my lower intestine sort of paralized. I can no longer move daily by nature, but have an urge only after my rectum if very full. If I wait for it to fill up, by then I am constipated and it's so large and hard and can only force it out with great effort and pain. A small enema daily and I can empty with ease and no pain or damage. My wife had an constipation habit as a youth, I gave her an enema 55 years ago when she had not moved for one week and was in trouble and pain. I suggested a daily enema to avoid constipation, she has taken a couple of quarts of warm water daily every since and if not for this I believe she would not have lived to this age.

I do not take enemas on a regular schedule. I try to take them more than once a month like 10 days to 20 day intervals. Once in a while as many as twice in a week. This week I took 2 three quart enemas on Tuesday and a 1 three quart enema on Thursday. I agree with NMArch and like to wait for normalizing before I take another. I usually have a small BM the next day and I am normal on the second day. However after my Thursday enema I am still not back to normal. I think as you get older things change and it is more difficult to get back to normal.

I have a Teledine Water Pic Super Saver Shower head on a flex hose. This gives you a regular fine spray shower but when you turn the outside ring you get a jet with 18 jets of water. As Todd mentioned, I can slip in about a cup of water with no problem and it feels great. My normal day starts with a good BM a glass of water then a 2 to 4 mile walk. I then eat breakfast then take a shower. During my shower I sometimes do the 1 cup squirt which really cleans me out but I don't count it as an enema. When I travel I like to take an enema series 2 days before I leave so that I am normalized before I go. As soon as I can I will take an enema series on my return.

Not on any schedule. Take as needed anywhere from 2-3 daily to less than once a month, just when I feel an enema is needed.

Good health to all

I thought I posted this before but I guess I didn't. I take one every Friday evening. If I had more time to myself, I'm sure I'd take an enema more often but once a week hold me over for now.

I try to do a series of two or three enemas every Saturday morning. I will often add another during the week.

I think the interesting thing to note here is the range of responses. Everything from a few times a year to a few times every day for decades; a squirt to 4 quarts; one or a series of a dozen.

So take comfort in the fact that we are all still alive and kicking. It would appear that you are unlikly to keel over regardless of the frequency or quantity within the range of common sense.

It would seem that within reason, you can take them as often as you wish, as much liquid as feels comfy, and one or a series as whim and available time permit. There is probably no universal "correct" answer regarding these parameters.

So relax and enjoy!

John

I am new to doing enemas. I have recently had a great deal of trouble going and when I do it is very large long and dry and hard. I have had trouble in the going dept for years but it is getting worse as I get older. I am 50 years old. I was on natures secret, multi fiber which has cascara segrada for years and it was the only way I could go. But lately even with it I have trouble going. Also drinking coffee in the am would always help me but even that doesn't work any more. I just started to do enemas and had one colonic, and not much comes out, but I am hoping they will help me. The only thing I am scared of is I don't seem to normalize after I take them. I don't want to now become dependant on enemas. Also I take acidolphilis and flax and digestive enzymes and a whole gammet of things and am have a whole lot of trouble going. Sorry to go on and on. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks for listening!

How much water do you drink during the day Maggie? Most of the things you're taking depend on water to work well but if you were drinking enough water, you may find you don't need most of the things you're taking. Don't worry, you won't become dependent on enemas but you will feel much better afterwards. I've been through it.

Thank you for answering Clint. I drink about 8 12oz. glasses per day and I have just started juicing and temporarily gave up meat. So maybe I just have to be patient. But I truly don't want to become dependant. Everyones encouragement is great...

Hello Maggie,
I'm sorry that you are going through so much. Must be frustrating. I'm sending Kristina a link to your post. She has helped many, and I know she can help you too.
Salute! (To your health)

Maggie,
Being new to Enema Therapy, it is very understandable that you
would be concerned about becoming dependant.
I would like to mention a couple of things that may reduce your
concern:
1. There are more than just a few members of this board that
have used Enemas on a daily or almost daily basis and have posted
no problems with returning to normal colon function when for whatever
reason their Enema usage is reduced or curtailed.
2. I live in New Orleans and like so many others had to evacuate
the City for an extended period of time (three weeks). Prior to the
Hurricane I was taking an Enemas series (three or four Enemas)every
three to five days. During the time I was away and unable to take
any Enemas at all, I had no elimination problems, but when I returned
and was able to resume my Enemas they sure made me feel good and
gave me a feeling of relaxation that I dearly needed after the ordeal
of the storm.
As long as you use your head and don't do anything reckless, I don't
think you need to fear getting addicted to the Enemas.
Good Luck,
Billy the Kid
