Difference Between Suppository and Enema – Which One is More Effective?
Suppositories and Enemas both offer relief from constipation and other bowel problems.
Spencer Feldman, CEO of Remedy Link Suppositories, states
“Both Suppositories and Enemas have an impressive 90% Absorption Rate – this is what makes them appealing to those who want powerful detoxification results. IV Therapy may have 99% Absorption, but these systems are more accessible, affordable and applicable.”
If both systems have similar benefits, what is the difference between the two? And which is right for you?
What Is The Difference Between an Enema and a Suppository?
An Enema is the injection of fluid into the lower bowel through the rectum while a suppository is a solid dosage form that is inserted into the rectum, vagina, or urethra.
While both systems help relieve constipation and eliminate toxins, Suppositories are a solid unit where Enemas are a liquid.
Suppositories are solid, torpedo-shaped plug made from either Glycerin, Cocoa Butter, Polyethylene Glycol, or Hydrogels.
Unlike Suppositories, an Enema is a system that uses a nozzle attached to a bag that uses a liquid such as Coffee or an Essential Oil Blend to release backed-up stools and toxins stored deep in the organs.
When deciding which is right for you, it depends on whether you prefer a solid or liquid delivery system.
How Does a Suppository Work?
There are two kinds of Suppositories. They are:
When the Suppository melts, it releases local or systemic nutrition to support the body. Bypassing the stomach allows Suppositories to deliver 90% of the ingredient you are supplementing, that is powerful nutrition!
Oral Supplements are known to be destroyed by digestion, only giving you 5% nutrition!

Enemas: Why Coffee?
Like Suppositories, Enemas help relieve constipation by relaxing the lower bowels. Enemas differ from suppositories by using fluid where Suppositories use a solid dosage unit to aggravate backlogged stools.
Alternative health therapies have popularized Coffee for its diuretic properties and for stimulating bile flow.
In addition to Coffee, Essential Oils are also used for their anti-inflammatory benefits.
Detox Expert Amie Valpone includes these additional benefits of Coffee for Enemas:
- Coffee supports Liver Detoxification
- Boosts Energy
- Improves Digestion
- Increases Glutathione
- Kills Parasites

The Effectiveness of Suppositories and Enemas
According to Kristina Amelong, CCT, CNC, Suppositories, and Enema support similar health benefits:
- Constipation Relief
- Cleansing the Organs
- Optimizing Electrolyte Levels
- Rebuilding the Mucous Lining
- Supporting the Liver
- Dumping Toxins
- Increase Glutathione Levels
Pros and Cons
While much more time-efficient than driving to your doctor’s office to get an IV, the #1 major drawback with both of these systems is time.
- Suppositories take anywhere from 15-60 minutes to encourage a bowel movement after insertion
- Detox Expert Amie Valpone says a typical Enema takes 15-20 minutes
3 Ways Suppository and Enema Protocols Enhance Detoxification
The 90% Absorption Rate makes “real detoxification a possibility,” says Feldman.
He states a Suppositories and Enemas enhance Detoxification in 3 ways:
- Flushes heavy metals out of your organs and body
- May put a negative charge on the blood
- Pulls Calcium completely out of the skin
Spencer Feldman comments,
“Only 5% of Oral Supplements survive digestion, that’s why I stick with rectal supplementation.”
Sample Detoxification Protocol for Beginners
Because Suppositories and Enemas support similar benefits, you can incorporate both into your detoxification protocol.
Kristina Amelong says,
“I recommend people do an Enema once a week. If you are in a period of deep cleansing and healing, I recommend 2 a day.
If you don’t have time to do an Enema once a week, I recommend doing a Suppository once a day for 6 days and an Enema for one day of those days to complete your week. Once you complete this one week protocol, repeat the cycle until you feel you are done cleansing.”
Here is an example of Amelong’s protocol:
- Sunday – Nightly Suppository
- Monday – Nightly Suppository
- Tuesday – Nightly Suppository
- Wednesday – Nightly Suppository
- Thursday – Enema
- Friday- Nightly Suppository
- Saturday – Nightly Suppository
You can start this simple protocol at any time, and repeat until your body feels cleansed.
Wondering which Suppository to use?
It depends on your specific protocol. A great all around option is VitalTox Glutathione to help strengthen your cells.
I recommend any Organic Coffee for your Enema.
