    I have read on a few sites that it is best to put some salt in the water that you use for an enema.

    It said use one tablespoon per litre, that seems alot I might use one teaspoon.

    Doe's anyone know why you should use a bit of salt anyway

    I think it's to keep your natural enzyme balance correct. Hopefully somebody with more medical knowledge than I will be able to confirm that. I would also agree that a tablespoon per litre is proably too much.

    I think the idea is to make the solution isotonic.

    Yup. Water transfers into the bloodstream from the walls of the colon. That's why you need to pee after you've had an enema.

    Salt reduces the transfer, so you're not constantly running back to the loo for hours after!

    it is because of the osmotic potential across the semi permeable membranes of the colon

    No but biology was my favourite subject at school.........I just thought I would post the most un erotic thing i could think of lol

    liquids passing through a membrane is called osmosis, the dirction of flow is determined by the osmotic potential osmotic potential is increased by salts. It is the same reason that salt kills plants water flows out instead of in.

    hows the stiffy?

    No way, loving the sexy biology jargon.

    And yeah it is totally the isotonic thing. As far as I'm aware the additional uptake of water isn't the problem per se, but rather the osmotic swelling irritates the epithelial lining of the colon.

    Now that is sexy.

    Alex.
