I have use mini-enemas with the fleet bottle that you can buy at the pharmacy.You can use the bottle again if you sterilize it.I use very little amount at room temperature water and it does moves the things down there.
I don't have cramps or D because i just use about one once at this moment.

Spasman, Those Fleet bottles can get expensive if you use them on a regular basis. Isn't?
I use a rectal syringe when I'm plugged up and need a little relief. This has literally saved my butt a few times in the moments when I was away from home and needed a little something to get things moving down there.
Now those syringes have other applications too, but I won't go into details on that. You'll have to rely on your imagination there.

Is there many tips in the box?I'm interested.
The problem with your ballon is that you can't tell if it is totally clean.The advantage of the Fleet bottle is the fact that it is transparent!!!

http://www.lifeknox.com/colitis.html Quote:"The baking soda counteracts acid. This is the reason I use baking soda enemas to treat colitis. Baking soda is alkaline. It reacts with any acid to neutralize it, and is not a strong enough base to cause any burns on its own. It works. In fact it works so well, the body thought of it first. The colon pumps bicarbonate into the colon to neutralize acid own its own in health. The use of baking soda to treat many conditions of excess acidity is very old. In colds and infections these enemas helps restore the acid alkaline balance. In colitis they help prevent and heal acid burns. The old books recommend one tablespoon of baking soda per quart of water. I think this is too much. I recommend one teaspoon of baking soda per quart. Even the higher amount has never been reported to have caused any problems at all. So I am probably just being over cautious in my recommendations. However, with IBS or colitis I like the enemas to be as soothing as possible and want to keep the alkaline content usable, but very mild."
