Hi everyone,

I'm currently taking saccromyces bolaris (Sp?) for bad bacteria in my intestines/colon. I bought some fleet enema's and I wanna empty it and fill it with warm water and one of the contents of my probiotic pills.

Is this ok to do? If so, how long should I keep it in?


If not, any suggestions if I'm doing something wrong?


Thanks!!!!

When I was flaring, I would mix a small amount of warm water with the powder from one probiotic, put it in a syringe that has a long tip, and use the syringe to put the mixture up my butt. I used about one to one and a half syringe worth.

I would do this after I had diarrhea. It was more effective than taking the probiotics orally.

I have used the primadophilus this way and the dr. ohirros probiotics this way too. Gets expensive so the cheap way to do it now is with my babies homemade probiotic diapers, lol.

For me it's usually best to use distilled water. Fewer irritants than tap. I'll use a 16 oz water bottle, fill it with the distilled water, fill up the sink with hot water and put the water bottle in it to warm it up. When I used capsule probiotics I used 5 caps per 30 ml water. Ohirros stuff was more impressive and smelly than the other grainy capsule probiotics I have seen. I have no clue how much baby poo to use when mixing it. Still experimenting at the moment. I usually don't use the enema with probiotics first as I would end up expelling it right back out. I am going to use a good 120 ml warm distilled water over 15-30 minutes just to flush and relax the colon a bit. Then I can use the probiotic mixture and it goes in fairly easy and stays. I hold all night. I have been taking the mess out of the diaper, putting a tablespoon size of poo into a corner of a ziploc baggie. Then cut the corner and apply it to bottle like I was frosting a cake, lol. No mess that way. I have been using around 40 ml warm water and shaking it up until it's nice and brown before applying it. Be nice to have someone to collaborate with on the process.

I have used probiotics as well as Vitamin E enemas. They were quite helpful. In so far as cost is concerned, I was having some home made concoction of Probiotics.

One must try to retain it overnight, if possible. Otherwise keep it as long as you can.

It's best to take probiotics as an enema. It's far more effective, works quickly and you use far less probiotics.

It's best to use it after a bowel movement
