Enema and its contraindications

As with colonics, there are times when treatment is not advised and is contraindicated:
Please, check the list before booking your appointment to ensure you are suitable for treatment.

  • Unexplained abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting
  • Rectal bleeding
  • If you are on a prescribed medication regime
  • If you are on anti-coagulant or warfarin
  • Fissure
  • Fistula
  • Failure to have a bowel movement after use of a laxative or enema
  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation

Fissures are small splits or tears in the anal mucosa that may cause painful bowel movements and bleeding. Blood may occur on the outside of the stool or on the toilet paper, following a bowel movement.

Fistula is an abnormal connection between two parts of the body that isn't meant to be there, allowing substances as stools to move from one part to another and cause all sorts of problems.

If you need anymore information, please, email or call me on 0207 247 7742 within the hours of 9.30am to 8pm Monday to Saturday,
I will be happy to answer any enquiries you might have.
