I use 2 enemas each day to let waste out for 3 years now as i cant go without it. How will it affect my health in the long run?

Enema

Avoid_constipation
My first question would be why you need the enemas in the first place. What is the cause of your constipation? Have you tried other medications such as miralax? The underlying cause of your constipation would determine the proper treatment. For example if you had pelvic floor dysfunction the treatment is not classic medications but rather biofeedback.

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

Open-uri20130916-24027-7csvn2
I recommend drinking lots of water and using Miralax, 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.

How often can I use saline enemas? I have tried the increased fiber/water plus colace with no help. I am a male, 54 and no significant health issues.

See your doctor

Water
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.

What are some of the benefits of coffee enemas?

None

Cancer
These were promoted by cancer quacks in the early 20th cenetury and are used today only by charlatans. People have died from them. If you think you have been suckered by a sweet-talking, seemingly-knowledgeable crook, contact your district attorney or the state board of healing arts.

What is an enema?

Hard to pass

Enema
An enema is typically used for people who are constipated. The individual inserts a tube into the rectum to infuse fluid into the bowel and encourage a bowel movement. Ordinary enemas contain tap water, mixtures of soap and water, glycerine and water, or other materials. Prior to using an enema, it is advisable to consukt with a physician to determine if this is the proper treatment.
