Relieve Constipation with an Enema

If you've tried everything to help alleviate your constipation and nothing seems to work, you may want to consider an enema as a constipation remedy.

Enemas are nothing scary or complicated, basically an enema is a device that introduces water to the lower intestines and cleans the bowels buy helping to push out waste. Enemas are not only known as one of the most effective constipation remedies but can be used as a way to help keep your colon clean and disease free.

You can purchase a disposable enema package at your local grocery store for a few dollars. This pre-packaged enema will usually come with a sodium phosphate solution (a common laxative), a single use bottle and a nozzle. Without going into to graphic detail, the enema package will come with easy to use instructions, you will insert the pre-lubricated nozzle into the anus and force the solution into the lower intestines. This all sounds a lot worse than it is. The sodium phosphate solution will then gently expand the intestines and help flush out all of the waste.

Enemas are a little more drastic than some of the other constipation remedies that I've written about on this site but... If non of those other constipation treatments are working for you, rest assured that once you've used enemas for constipation, constipation will no longer be an issue.

If you haven't tried any other treatments to alleviate your constipation, I would recommend you take a look at some of the other posts on this site. Try out some easier constipation remedies before using an enema.

The pre-packaged sodium phosphate enemas work quickly, the only downside is they contain a pretty significant amount of sodium. For an adult on a sodium restricted diet, a quart of warm water will usually deliver good results using either an enema bag/bucket, or a bulb syringe.
