Probiotic Enemas


Mar 15, 2014
Has anyone here ever tried them? A cursory search seems to suggest great danger:

Probiotic enema? Anyone tried it? : Microbiome
After probiotic enema, I can't eat food without feeling very sick. Every antibiotic I've tried is causing major side effects. What to do? : AskDocs
(The second link is not an actual enema, but a probiotic administration via a nasal tube)

But on the other hand:
Randomised clinical trial: the effectiveness of Lactobacillus reuteri ATCC 55730 rectal enema in children with active distal ulcerative colitis - PubMed

The positive result was from the well-known L. Reuteri bacteria, which is highly associated with positive outcomes in mice.
