Are Enemata Good For You.

You are reading this post maybe because you are wondering if enemas are good for you, you want to know how long it will take enemata to work after injection, you want to know when to use enemata, you want to know if coffee can clean your system and also the dangers associated with enemata. Yes you are at the right place.


Enemata is good for you because it stimulates the bowel or lubricates the bowel contents after injection of fluid into the rectum or anus and lower bowel which causes defaecation to take place. Please note that Enemata is divided into two groups; which are the ones to be returned and those to be retained after injection.


Know that each and every example of those ones to be returned (defaecation) after injection has different constituent. For instance:

Evacuant Enemata : This contains soap and water or olive oil or glycerine or hypertonic saline or plain water.

Purgative Enemata : You can use castor oil for this.

Anthelmintic Enemata : This one is used for the treatment of internal parasites which inhabits or live in  the bowel.

Carminative Enemata : Flatus(gas) enemata.. this is mostly used for those who passed through operations and are having painful gas or excessive gas.

Then for the ones that are to be retained after the fluid has been injected into the bowel are:

Stimulating : you can you normal saline or coffee. Yes for those asking if you can use coffee or if coffee can clean your system, YES coffee can.

Anaesthetic : you can use avertin (Tribromoethanol). you can prepare this by mixing 2.5 g of 2,2,2-tribromoethanol with 5 ml of tert-amyl alcohol and dissolving it in 200 ml of water using a magnetic stirrer. The administration of more dilute solutions of the compound may be recommended because higher concentrations seem to be more frequently associated with postanesthetic mortality.

Sedative : paraldehyde (this can be used to treat alcoholism, mental and nervous conditions.


Now lets talk about the contents of this enemata group



The soap and water acts by irritating the bowel wall. Occasionally some of the soap is absorbed and this may cause a measles-like rash all over the buttocks which is known as enema rash.



The hypertonic saline acts as an evacuant because of its presence which attracts fluids to itself. The bulkiness of the excess fluid in the bowel causes a reflex stimulation and defaecation also takes place.

To prepare a hypertonic saline for an evacuant enema, you will have to get two teaspoonful of salt, added to a pint of water at a temperature of 37 degrees centigrade (99 degrees F).



One hundred to three hundred millilitres of olive oil at a temperature of 37 degrees centigrade may be slowly injected by tube, catheter or funnel in order to soften hard or scybalous faeces. This usually retain for about three to five hours. To ensure retention, the foot of the person may be raised; this facilitates gravity. Then after that, the person is given an enema saponis to stimulate peristalsis which causes defaecation.

you can also do this by adding one ounce of olive oil to the soap solution before giving a soap and water enema. If frequent enemata are being given, this has the effect of soothing the irritation of the bowel lining caused by soap.



You can prepare this by mixing about 15 ml of glycerine with 30-55 ml of warm water and inject with a tube and funnel. But if the glycerine has to be given undiluted, it may be given by a special vulcanite syringe with a catheter attached to the hard nozzle. Glycerine being a hygroscopic substances attracts water to itself thereby increasing the bulk of the contents of the lower bowel and also exciting the reflex of defaecation.


Now lets talk about the dangers associated with the administration of an enema


1.  If the solution used is too hot, it will cause burning of the rectal mucosa.

2.  If the solution is too cold, it may cause shock.

3.  Unless care is taken to remove all air bubbles, air may be injected into the bowel which would cause the person considerable discomfort.

4.  When soap is used, it may cause an enema rash
