Pooperscooper asks:

Given a choice, are tap water enemas better or worse than using a laxative? (note: I only do this rarely, when I am bunged up for 3 days or more. Rare but it happens.)




Dr. Adams responds:


Hi,

I would recommend a tap water enema over a laxative. The enema is much more natural and has a far smaller impact on the physiological functioning of the bowels. Laxatives if used in moderation are ok, however, the regular use of laxatives can be very dangerous. I have come across many patients who suffer with motility disorders and chronic bowel problems related to their regular usage of laxatives.

Better than taking a medication laxative, or even an enema, I would recommend that you try increasing the amount of fiber in your diet and increasing your intake of water. Most constipation is related to a lack of copious water in the diet and a diet low in fiber and high in saturated fats.

Tap water anything is bad for you. Look at all the crap that floats around in tap water. Chemicals, germs, radiation, people's leftover medications. Don't do it!

Enemas are much better than laxatives. As said above they are natural only tap water. You can use filtered water but make sure it's warmed not cool or cold as it can give severe cramps. Also, a little castile soap will do the trick as a laxative but it's much safer to use. I use enemas when I get constipated for 3 to 4 days. I use a enema bag (syringe) fill it to 2 or 3 quarts take the entire bag, expell and I'm good for the day.

I am one of those people who uses enemas on a regular basis because I only feel like my rectum is clean after i take an enema and expel it. Is there any one else like me?

P.S.
I usually use the garden hose to give an enema.

Dave, this, and the other story you linked are more examples of the things you can learn from Poop Report. I had NO IDEA the public at large were so plugged up!

I go every day, sometimes twice, with no outside influences. Lucky, lucky me!

Please go read the product review of the "Rite Aid Complete Ready-to-Use Enema, Triple Pack," which really should have been written for PR. It is a blast!

I see nothing wrong with the tap water enema, assuming that you have a clean water supply.

AC, I'm sorry to have misled you, Tromaville is a fictional town in New Jersey made semi-famous in such films as "The Toxic Avenger" and "Nuke 'em High", directed by David Troma...absolutely atrocious movies, so bad they are incredibly funny, and have developed a cult following akin to, but not nearly as large as, "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

...Bilge, is Rocky Horror really that popular over there, too?
I was kind of hoping that it was just popular with the metrosexual types (that must surely, eventually breed themselves into extinction) over here.
I laughed pretty hard when I read 'Tromaville Enemas', because I got the joke.

Hey guys, the water here in Jersey is very clean. I went trout fishing the other day, and the only problem I had was that a park ranger accused me of keeping over my limit of three. When I showed him that they each had two heads, he let me go.

One posting mentioned garden hose...i think any water under pressure is dangerous..you can back up stool and at least in men cause prostatitis an infection that is can be so painful you will not believe it..and probably go to the emergency room..plus you will need a long regimene of cipro

I love enemas. I find it relaxing and comforting. There's just something about the feeling you get after an enema - like you've been flushed out. It's great.

I find it functional to unscrew my showerhead and put the end of the hose up to my asshole until the water penetrates me, hold it there for a few seconds, then release. It's super functional.

Actually it is called tonicity, not toxicity when dealing with water- pure tap water will indeed throw off your osmotic balance if abused and this can very well be fatal.

Do not use more then half a liter if you regularly enema, and if you insist on it atleast buy a saline enema to mix in with your tap (sorry hose wont work for that unless you build some elaborate system)

I much prefer the Japanese sake enema administered by a cute giggling geisha, who for some reason always ends up as a frowning gagging geisha.

I use enemas often due to constipation. I eat fiber foods drink plenty of water etc. I eat healthy but I still get constipated. About 3 days without a bowel movement I must resort to taking 3 quarts of soap suds enema with a enema bag (syringe. I do not use those Fleets enemas as they are dangerous to use and do not use any kind of laxatives they are dangerous too. Taking a soap suds enema is more natural like having a regular bowel movement and I feel clean for the day and start my day normally.

I started taking a shower douche every morning because it seemed more effecient. Saves time for me, in the morning. Of course, I'm shaving and brushing my teeth in the shower, as well. It all goes down the drain! I used to hate getting all cleaned up, ready for my day and then have to stop and take a crap! (Also, saves toilet paper! heheh!)

Is that what that sprayer thing on the kitchen sink is for ? Afterwards, to get the last bit of water out do you do a tap dance ?

Seriously folks...be careful about possibly using too much non-saline (such as tap) water.

You may cause an electrolyte imbalance. Just do a quick web search before you do a squirt. Wheeeeee!

I gave my self a water enema in a hotel room and I shit all over the tub. It was the worst smell I have ever smelled. It was all black water pouring out of my dirty little bum bum. I feel bad for the Mexican maid who had to clean up my shit. But I feel really bad for the next person who takes a bath in that shitty tub.
