Colon Cleanse Alternative to Enemas
When taken under the guidelines presented on this website, an enema is safe and effective. However, in some situations a colon cleanse using an enema is not necessarily the best approach. For instance:
- When the colon is inflamed, a water enema may further inflame the colon.
- When children are constipated, they may be afraid of an enema nozzle being inserted in their body or the water from a past enema may have caused cramping and pain that they don’t want to go through again.
- The amount of time one has for the colon cleanse may be too short to take an enema.
All of these situations may be better suited to using a rectal suppository.
Here are two short videos to assist you in the process of using rectal suppositories instead of enemas for your colon cleanse:
