Most people greet the notion of a home enema with a wince and a snicker. Knowing the benefits of an enema can change that wince into a sigh of relief.
An enema is a method to flush waste out of the colon. It's not such a bad idea when you consider that the average person may have up to 10 pounds or more of non-eliminated waste in the large intestine!
Simply put, an enema cleans up the colon and induces bowel movements, leaving you feeling cleaner, lighter, and healthier almost immediately. The main job of the colon is to absorb water and nutrients from food and remove waste and toxins. Over the years, the colon walls can become encrusted with non-eliminated waste, making it sluggish and inefficient.
When you start drinking probiotic beverages like CocoBiotic, bacteria and yeast may begin to die off in your intestines. You can use a gentle home enema to release these toxins and restore health.
When that happens, you might experience some of the following symptoms:
Enemas are not a new fad or something that's only performed by those obsessed with their health. It wasn't that long ago that enemas were routinely prescribed by doctors as part of a normal cure for illness.
An Egyptian king, as early as 1500 B.C., was known to receive routine enemas by a physician who used them for regular medical treatments. The Egyptians believed that all diseases were caused by tainted, unwanted additions to food, or too much food, and understood how an enema could offer relief to serious situations.
Ancient regions in Africa, Greece, Babylonia, India, and China used enemas. American Indians performed enemas. Louis XIV had almost 2000 enemas in his lifetime and stayed healthy throughout. And even the vivacious and voluptuous Mae West started every day with a morning enema.
While the medical community has somehow disconnected itself from the benefits of enemas, some medical professionals are slowly coming around. Suzy Cohen, also known as "America's Pharmacist," declares that coffee enemas are safe when performed by holistic physicians and even at home in her Ask The Pharmacist column. Cohen goes on to say that coffee enemas can be used as therapeutic treatment for a number of conditions, like constipation, fatigue, liver detoxification, and even cancer.1 Research has confirmed the effectiveness of administering therapeutic agents through the colon instead of the mouth.2
Before we get into enema-techno, let's take a look at what you could see disappear with regular enemas:
If you experience any of those conditions, perhaps you should consider an enema! Whenever you're feeling lethargic or constipated, it's a sure sign that an enema should be scheduled into your immediate future. Even if you're feeling great, releasing extra toxins can only make you feel better.
As you approach a healthier lifestyle and begin The Body Ecology Diet, home enemas are incredibly important for:
There are two types of enemas:
Examples of cleansing enemas:
Examples of retention enemas:
Each enema requires a slightly different method, but the results for each will be glorious. When a smaller amount of liquid is retained permanently, we prefer to call this an implant. One cup of liquid with a probiotic, minerals, or something green with chlorophyll (like wheat grass) makes an excellent implant. They'll quickly have you on your way to a happier, healthier colon!
Alright, before you hit the "Exit" button, let us put your mind at ease. The thought of an enema can be a little off-putting, but they're really much more comfortable than you might anticipate.
In fact, an enema can be a very nurturing experience.
All you need is either a bag or a bucket (specifically designed for an enema in mind), a gentle catheter, a little coconut or olive oil for lubrication, clean water, and a little privacy. At Body Ecology, we highly recommend the home enema kit and supplies from Health & Yoga. We particularly like the Enema Kit with the Stainless Steel Can and think you will too!
Forget what you know. A home enema really isn't as scary as it sounds. An enema can be used to flush waste out of the colon—up to 10 pounds of excess waste in the large intestine, depending on the person! When you are done with this nurturing experience, you'll feel cleaner, lighter, and healthier.
An enema can also benefit your health. It is the colon's job to absorb water and nutrients from food and flush waste and toxins. When walls of the colon grow crusted with non-eliminated waste over the years, it becomes sluggish and inefficient.
As you begin to enjoy more fermented foods and beverages in your diet, like cultured vegetables, kefir, CocoBiotic, and InnergyBiotic, you may especially benefit from a home enema to counter yeast and pathogenic bacteria die-off. A home enema can flush out these accumulated toxins and ease your discomfort. Start this natural process at home with a bag or bucket designed for enema use—we recommend the home enema kit and supplies from Health & Yoga. Happy cleansing!
Kefir has many benefits, including better digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It has been known for thousands of years for its anti-aging and immune-enhancing properties.
Kefir is an ancient cultured food, rich in amino acids, enzymes, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and B vitamins. Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish, and that's just how you'll feel after drinking a glass in the morning! Easy and fun to make at home, it is superior to commercial yogurt. An absolute must after antibiotic use!
Unlike yogurt, kefir can actually colonize the intestinal tract and is simple and fun to make at home. To make kefir: Mix one packet with 1 quart of warm milk, cover and set at room temperature for 18-24 hours. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Each packet yields 1 quart of kefir, and can be reused up to 7 times. This means you can create 10 ½ gallons of kefir from one box!
