Dear Curious
I am personally not really in favour of this procedure as it will also remove all the 'good' microorganisms from the colon, something that is not conducive to good health. Unless you are suffering from colonic impaction, I would rather advise that you take supplements containing 'good' microorganisms such as Bifidoflora or Bifidoforte (buy at health shops) and increase your dietary fibre and water intake to promote regularity.
