Are or Can Enemas Related to Depression ?

I sometimes perform enemas to clean out myself . I have noticed after heavy use sometimes coffee . I feel depressed sometimes very manic racing thoughts . I feel the water and a bit of indigestion. I want to know from a doctor or anyone that may have experienced this know someone who has . Every time I do this it begins to happen meaning depression and mass anxiety . Is there anything that a enema or too much water etc can be causing . I await your response/(responses)


thankyou

The use of coffee enemas may be triggering some of your symptoms due to electrolyte imbalances following this.

There's a risk of dehydration with regular use of enema's (even water based ones). Perhaps some of your symptoms are connected with this. Why do you feel the need to go this route to keep you "cleaned out" as opposed say, a high fiber diet and exercise?

There are few physicians who post to this forum. I'm not a physician, although I've been in health care since (it seems) time began.
