Constipation is very common problem among the people nowadays. Most of you might have experienced constipation at some point of time in your lives. It is typically characterized by infrequent bowel movement, large stools and difficult or painful evacuation.
Most of the time, constipation is not related to an illness and digestive disorder. Instead, the problem is caused by diet, bad lifestyle, medications and some other factors that harden the stool and make it difficult to pass. Some triggers of the constipation in adults includes a diet low in fiber, a sedentary lifestyle, inadequate fluid intake, travel and scheduling factors and side effects of medications.
Enema for constipation
Most people with simple constipation can diagnose and treat themselves. If you have constipation, firstly you need to examine your lifestyle. One of the powerful methods to get rid of constipation is enema. With the help of enema you can easily cure this annoying condition. It is very powerful treatment and only recommended when all other methods have failed.
With an enema, you can easily remove waste materials, especially which has remained in the colon for some time such as impacted faeces, dead cellular tissues and worms. Enemas treat constipation by introducing fluid in the intestines through the rectum. The liquid softens impacted stools while the enema nozzle loosens the rectum. This combination will stimulate a large bowel movement. Some of the most commonly used enemas are given below.
Fleet enemas -:
Fleet is very common over-the-counter enemas sold as ‘saline enemas’ that use the active ingredient sodium phosphate to get you unstuck. It acts primarily by drawing water into the colon, which loosens stools and increases gut mobility. It also comes in its own disposable squeeze bag and nozzle, making it very convenient because no other equipment is required.
Oil based enemas -:
Oil based enemas are generally used for hard stools. They act by softening stuck stools through lubrication from the oil. These types of enemas make it easier for patients to pass impacted stools.
Saline solution enema -:
These homemade enemas require some equipment, including an enema bag, enema tube and distilled water. The most common solution involves the two tablespoons of table salt to a quart of lukewarm distilled water.
Enemas typically are recommended as a treatment of last resort for people suffering from constipation. While enemas for constipation can provide relief, care must be taken because of possible side effects. Enema is quite toxic or you can say poisonous. These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making you feel tired and weak. Consumption of enemas can cause dehydration so you need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. We recommend you to consult your doctor before using an enema.
