The Difference between a Colonic and an Enema

Written by Science Knowledge on 6:13 PM

Colonics and enemas are both colon-cleansing therapies which involve using water to cleanse the colon of residual fecal matter. You must have a colon therapist administer a colonic. While some people use self-use kits to give themselves an enema, I strongly advise that you do not do so before consulting your doctor who knows the risks and your current state of health and medical history.

The possible harm you might do makes prior consultation essential.

Here are some of the differences between colonics and enemas:

A colonic involves multiple infusions of water into the colon while an enema requires only a single infusion of water into the colon. The colonic cleanses the entire colon while an enema is intended to cleanse only the lower part of the colon, sigmoid, and part of the descending colon.

A colonic uses a closed-tube system for taking out the fecal matter, so there is no smell and you cannot see the fecal matter coming out. After the colonic session ends, you can use the toilet to pass any residual stools or water.

An enema may allow water to remain in the lower part of the colon and you then need to use the toilet to complete excretion. There is no closed tube system for excretion when you have an enema.

A colonic requires use of professional equipment which must be handled by a professional colon therapist. You cannot do a colonic by yourself and on yourself.

An enema may be done with enema kits that are available over the counter and even online. While the procedure is relatively simple and there is no legal restriction in many areas that you must have professional assistance for an enema, I suggest that you consult your doctor before even thinking about having an enema, just like you would before any other procedure.

About Me

In its broadest sense, science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") refers to any systematic knowledge or practice. In its more usual restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Fields of science are commonly classified along two major lines: natural sciences, which study natural phenomena (including biological life), and social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These groupings are empirical sciences, which means the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being experimented for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions.
