About enemas and colon cleansing
The state of the digestive system can have a major impact on other parts of the body and its functions, including theimmune system, detoxification organs and systems, nutrient absorption and metabolism (to name a few).
To support the health of the digestive tract, it can be helpful to regularly remove deposits and debris from the colon – particularly where there is a back-up in the system and/or where sticky, hardened deposits have formed in the pockets and along the walls of the bowel (which can accumulate over time as a result of fermentation and putrefaction from poor diet, poor hydration and partially digested foods).
If waste-matter is not regularly eliminated from the bowel, and it remains in the colon for longer than is desirable (e.g. constipation), it can create the perfect breeding ground for harmful bacteria. What’s more, toxins produced by the process of putrefaction can be re-absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed around the body, increasing the toxic load.
What is an enema?
An enema is a painless process in which water or gas is inserted into the rectum and colon via the anus to expel their contents. Enemas can therefore be thought of as a form of colon cleanser that involves the use of equipment.
They are particularly useful as part of a cleanse and detox program, because they can help to rid the body of any toxins, parasites and waste matter that have accumulated in the colon over time – particularly if your diet is high in refined foods, saturated fats, sugar and lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables.
Digestive problems resulting from poor diet and/or digestive disorders can often lead to bloating, wind and stomach pain. Many people therefore use home enema kits for constipation relief or occasional colon cleansing. They are similar to (if simpler than) the procedures used by colonic irrigation and colon hydrotherapy clinics to cleanse the colon, but you can do it without embarrassment in the privacy and convenience of your own home.
Enemas and colonic cleansing are popular as alternative health therapies across the world. Advocates of liquid enemas and colon cleansing believe them to be safe and valuable tools for eliminating waste, toxins and accumulated fat from the body and restoring normal muscular activity in the colon. They are also thought to support weight loss and to promote a feeling of general well-being.
