Enema Water Temperature

Enema-Web.Com comprehensive guide to enemas





Most people find that a warm water enema will be held more easily than a cold one. Use very warm enema when filling to the maximum amount of water possible. Use a cool to cold water enema when you need to force out water and material that is stuck in your bowel after your warm water enema.

The temperatures given are that of the water as it is poured into the bag. It cools off some before it gets into the colon. Don't try to judge temperature with your fingers, they're too unreliable. If you don't want to use a thermometer, use your tongue! It's a fairly reliable reference for body temperature.

Cool water is    ( 75 - 85 degrees Fahrenheit )       30 - 35 degrees centigrade

Warm water is  ( 99 - 106 degrees Fahrenheit )  37- 42 degrees centigrade

Hot water is      ( 107 - 115 degrees Fahrenheit )   41 - 45 degrees centigrade

Don't take water any hotter than 45 centigrade or 115 Fahrenheit or you can scald the colon.

You can use it as cold as you can stand, some take crushed ice enemas, but I suspect most people couldn't even accept water that cold into their bowel and expect to hold it for more than a few seconds.

Warning: Do not use enemas or laxatives if abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting are present unless directed by your health care provider.
Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative or enema may indicate a serious condition.
Discontinue use and consult your health care provider.
