Never use an enema if rectal bleeding is present. If this condition occurs, contact your naturopath or other health practitioner for immediate assistance.
Never give children under ten more than one enema daily, as this may cause hyponatremia, where blood sodium levels drop to dangerously low due to increased water intake.
Children under two should not be given a catnip tea enema.
As previously mentioned, coffee enemas should not be practiced for more than four to six weeks at a time and long-term, excessive use may lead to anemia.
L. Bifidus enemas should only be used three to six times a year.
It is important to thoroughly wash and sterilize the end of the enema tube after every session.
