Constipation brings all sorts of unpleasant feelings for most of us. Typically, we resort to taking laxatives for instant relief from constipation, but such medication leads to dependence and the development of more gastrointestinal issues. If you?re looking for an all-natural and effective approach to constipation relief, we highly suggest you give colon cleansing enema a try.
Why enema for constipation?
Enema is an internal cleansing procedure that flushes away accumulated wastes and toxins in the gut. Unlike laxatives, enema does not involve the use of medications that may cause harm or dependence for users. The results are also immediate in that you will experience constipation relief as soon as you?re done performing the 15-minute procedure.
How long does it take for an enema to work?
An enema is an internal bath that involves the introduction of distilled water into the colon via the rectum. In the case of constipation, Fleet enema is highly recommended. A cleansing enema is first conducted prior to a Fleet enema as this helps in flushing out loose stools and wastes from the colon. The Fleet enema on the other hand is a retention-type enema. This means that the Fleet solution needs to be held within the colon for up to 15 minutes. If you are performing enema for constipation, you need to allot at least 30 minutes of your time to complete the procedure.
Does an enema hurt?
A lot of people are not so keen to perform an enema due to the misconception that it is a painful procedure. Although first timers may experience discomfort, this sensation subsides after you complete the first flushing out of wastes. To minmise discomfort, experts recommend using natural lubricants such as olive oil and coconut oil along the first four inches of tubing before entry. As peristalsis is stimulated during an enema, you will feel slight pain after your enema. The gastrointestinal discomfort is immediately relieved by bowel evacuation.
If there is no movement after an enema, you may also feel bloated or gastric pain. We highly recommend that you call your doctor as they can suggest the next appropriate action to alleviate the usual unpleasant symptoms associated with colon cleansing.
