If i wash out bile in my system by using an enema is it a good thing? Is it cleansing/detoxing my system at all in a good way?
Enema won't rid bile: An enema has about a zero chance of reaching the duodenum where the bile duct enters the GI tract from your liver. Assuming you're healthy, your liver, kidneys, and GI tract do a fine job of "detoxing" your system all on their own! (how did our cave man ancestors ever manage to get by without cleansing or detoxing?) eat well and let your body work naturally. You do not need "detoxing.". ...Read more

I hardly poop and these days can't poop like a healthy person. So i'm using an enema 3 times per week. Is it bad for my health or?
Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily force you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more

See your doctor: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it. ...Read more
