Extreme fatigue after enema

Hey guys, a question for those of you who do enemas...Sometimes, following an enema, I feel utterly fatigued as if all life has been sucked out of me. Is this normal? Does it happen to you? Normally, I feel fine after, but today, I couldn't move from my bed after. Did I do too much? I just used water.
I happen to be in crash mode - yes, I know, I know, I just had this super UP cycle which was fantastic. Then family visited, so it was non stop for a week.
Any thoughts or ideas?

I have had varying results from enema, and it has been oscillating between tiredness and lightness and increased energy. I think the tiredness is more of a dehydration/nutrient depletion feeling for me, so I make sure to drink and replace electrolytes after an enema. That being said, I have really backed off using them , as some of my gut issues have resolved themselves. I plane to experiment a bit more with this technique though, as a probiotic delivery method.

Yes. That could be it. I hadn't thought of that. I sorta have to do enemas as I have no bowel movements at all (I know I need to see someone about that - hopefully within the next week).

Does the water really make a difference? I just use tap water. It's such a chore for me to have to do them - like I mentioned, I have to do them at least 3 times a week - so if I have to do something to my water, etc, etc, I would never do it.

Can you boil , then cool it? I know its kind of a pain, but it will help sterilize it.

Thanks for the info, you guys. I'll be careful with the water. Maybe I can keep a bunch of boiled water in the bathroom.

Please excuse me. You might want to increase your calcium, sunlight, and salt intake. There's a valve that separates the small intestine from the large intestine called the ileocecall valve. When you do an enema, the caffeine stimulates the ileocecal valve (ICV), causing the bacteria from the large intestine to flow backward into the small intestine, where nutrients are absorbed. If your digestion was problematic prior to the coffee enema, you might have just over-exhausted your ICV. What increases the strength of your ICV? Calcium. What do you need in order to absorb calcium? Vitamin D. Ho...(More)

Thank you for this information. I eat a lot of spinach and get sunlight everyday. I haven't done coffee enemas in a long time. How should the salt intake go? Just adding salt to food?

Yes, just add enough salt for your body to absorb the calcium. Also, you may want to avoid high-lectin foods. Gluten is just one of the many lectins out there. Lectins are poisonous to your gut and cause leaky gut. The coffee enema might have just made your leaky gut worse. I discovered yesterday that, yes, my ileocecal valve might be weak, but making it stronger without healing the gut is poin...(More)
