Enema Suppository
  • Today I stumbled on something I've never heard of or seen before. It is called an enema suppository.It doesn't use water but instead uses a gas to stimulate "bowel cleansing" with the least possible mess and effort.
    It is distributed by
    Can anyone provide testimonials, additional information?
  • The two chemicals used in the suppository appear to be non-hazardous, although I'm somewhat skeptical towards the "cleansing" aspect. Although the gas might trigger a stronger bowel movement, I don't see how it differs from laxatives. :?

    An intriguing concept and I like the idea that this "dry method" doesn't involve the depletion of "good bacteria" from the system, however I have a couple of concerns about it. First, the product description tells you that the process can be up to an hour in length. Frankly they've lost me right there. If I engage in a "cleaning" at all these days, I want something simple and quick, not an entire evacuation of my colon. The second issue I have here is with the idea of pumping air into ones system. Presumably they must advise you to clench down initially to allow a volume of gas to develop in your rectum. I have to believe that a fair portion of it makes it's way into the colon as well. As many users know, being "gassy" during a session can be really disruptive. My thought is that there could be air trapped during the "cleansing" routine (that doesn't get voided) that would later become a problem. Finally, there is no brand name listed making me wonder how this product was manufacturered. That is to say, is this a "home brew" item or is there a reputable manufacturer associated with it?

    I think I'll stay with 4 to 6 ounces of lukewarm water in a bulb syringe.

  • Medically there have been some studies in using the carbon dioxide suppositories. For some people the traditional oral fiber, or other laxatives don't work. Carbon dioxide suppositories have been around for those individuals that may need them for chronic constipation. The active drug stimulates the production of the same component of intestinal gas to promote peristalsis and defecation.

    People should NOT take this medicine if they are having abdominal pain, or signs of appendicitis.

    There are much easier ways to deal with cleaning out the rectum... than this product. This is generally seen in a clinical setting and is a prescription by a physician. This is a more extreme method and only used with individuals with chronic constipation. I am sure there are manufacturers that have "tapped" into medical supplies and using them in a means other than what they were originally FDA approved.
