Enemas & Colonics

Posted on January 27, 2013 at 10:40 PM


What is the difference between a Colonic and an Enema?

Colonics and enemas are therapies that both involve introducing water into the colon through the rectum in order to cleanse the colon. But there are some key differences between colonics and enemas:

Colonics cleanse the entire length of the colon. Enemas cleanse the lower part of the colon, the sigmoid and part of the descending colon.Colonics involve mutiple infusions of water into the colon. Enemas involve a single infusion of water into the colon.With colonics, fecal matter leaves the body via a tube. The client does not see or smell the fecal matter during the session. At the end of the session, the client usually sits on a toilet, and usually passes any residual water and stools. An enema involves the one-time infusion of water. It sits in the lower part of the colon for a period of time, and then the person sits on the toilet. Colonics must be administered by a trained colon hydrotherapist and requires professional equipment. Enemas can be performed at in the comfort of your own home. Disposable enema kits are available in drugstores and online. If  administered properly both are painless and leave one feeling far better than before the session. One may experience minor discomfort like the sensations felt during a normal bowel movement

How often should one have colonics or Enema's ?The results of the first treatment determine how soon to have another. The more room made in the bowels from an effective treatment, the more unprocessed waste will find its way to the bowel in the days and weeks that follow. This is when you want to "ride the wave of momentum" in order to assist the body in moving waste that has been in the body for some time and is a bit too dense and sticky to be passed during a normal bowel movement.  Diet also matters greatly in order to support the cleansing process, we need to change how we eat. This does not mean we should make radical changes, but instead begin to slowly transition into a more cleansing diet. As we are transitioning, we can have colonics or do enimas regularly. There is no magic number that one needs to adhere to in order to benefit from colonics or enemas. There are people who do them daily, weekly, monthly or twice a year. Your body is your best indicator.

What are the benefits? Consider the colon the sewer system of the body. Since the colon is at the end of the line, it becomes sluggish, backed-up, and therefore polluted. This in turn pollutes and weakens the entire body - tissue, organs, and bloodstream. We eventually become sick because the amount of waste in the tissues and bloodstream is too much for our daily routine. The waste in the blood stream that does not get filtered by the kidneys in sleep (dialysis) eventually contributes to general fatigue, cloudiness in one's thinking, bloating, and lack of energy to get through the day. By cleansing the bowels we can help restore the body to its natural state of being, which is healthy and vibrant. By decreasing the amount of waste in the bowels we effectively cleanse the tissues, organs, and bloodstream of the body. As we become "cleaner," we notice many changes - from increased energy and vitality to living free of disease and common illnesses.

Are there any negative side effects?There are many opinions on this topic. Often we hear about people becoming dependent on colonics to properly evacuate the bowels. This is based on stories, which come from people that have used machines to cleanse the bowels. Some colonics are 100% machine free, so one never becomes dependent on colonics and enemas are also machine free. We experience the opposite of this myth. Once the bowels are sufficiently cleansed they begin to regain strength and vitality, and therefore work better than ever before.

Is it true that regular treatments can wash away the "good" bacteria? This is a good question, which requires some explaining. Most of us were raised on diets very high in animal products. Which means, we have more putrefactive bacteria than we do beneficial bacteria, Acidophilus Bacillus, among others. By cleansing the bowels, we decrease the amount of putrefactive bacteria. Along with bowel cleansing it is recommended that one's diet change to suit this new lifestyle. Meaning, we begin to reduce that which thwarts the growth of good bacteria. As we increase the amount of raw fruits & vegetables we support the growth of good bacteria. In a nutshell most of us lack greatly, good bacteria and eat a diet that simply doesn't allow the cultivation of that which is needed to sustain our lives in a healthy way.

Doesn't the human body eliminate waste on its own? This question is linked to the previous one. The body does eliminate waste on its own, to some degree, depending on one's diet, bowel strength, and how unobstructed a person is. When we reach a point from eating dead, processed foods and too many animal products, we kill off the good bacteria, which is there to "mop up the mess left behind". Little by little, day after day waste builds up in the bowels. As waste accumulates we begin to move our bowels with less efficiency bringing about constipation. Which of course, we want avoid.

I have at least one bowel movement every day. Do I really need a treatment? Well, that depends on the amount of meals consumed per day. Eating three meals a day should produce three bowel movements a day. Moving our bowels once per day while maintaining a diet of three meals per day would indicate that we are retaining two thirds of what we are consuming.

Why would I need treatments if I "go" everyday? Even if we consider ourselves regular we can improve our health by maintaining regular colon cleansing. By assisting the body's natural attempts to rid itself of accumulated waste in the form of gas, feces and mucus, we increase our vitality and therefore avoid suffering from latent illness. The more we cleanse and detoxify ourselves the less we suffer from illness.

Will I need to rest or take it easy after a treatment? After a colonic  or enema one's energy should increase and we feel much better and lighter than before the treatment. However, some people upon having their first treatment could experience a slight feeling of fatigue. This is the exception to the rule. Most folks feel great afterwards.

I have IBS. Will this help? Oh yes. IBS is caused by the presence of acidic gas and waste. As we decrease the waste from the bowels the IBS will decrease, dramatically. Of course the diet is a major contributing factor. Which means, the diet needs to improve and include more alkaline foods as we embark on the path of detoxification. They go hand in hand.

How will colon cleansing improve my overall health? The colon is the waste removal system for the body. If we allow gas, waste and mucus to fester in the bowels we bring about a situation not unlike a traffic jam. Inefficiency at the elimination point will slow down the small intestines right on up to the stomach. This common occurrence in people of frighteningly young ages results in many different ailments, symptoms and illnesses, ranging from acid reflux to acne, body odor to name a few. Ignoring these signs or suppressing symptoms with drugs will lead to more fatal illnesses. Not to mention the negative effects drugs have on our entire system. Removing the waste from the body will help avert these seemingly minor issues from becoming a real health crisis. Ignoring or drugging common illnesses like colds & flu's can set the stage for far more serious diseases to develop.

Can this assist in healing? Most people remain "medicated" for years. Between illness, allergy medicines, and over-the-counter" drugs. This in conjunction with daily meds used for general pain, cold & flu meds they become a walking pharmacy. After being introduced to a different way of eating, which includes food combining, juicing, excluding dairy and animal products you will be amazed at how great you will feel. It will lead you to reduce meds, over months till you are free of the drugs and the disease. As for common illnesses like colds, flu, virus, sinusitis, upper and lower respiratory illness, etc. These illnesses will no longer affect you. Colon cleansing greatly assist in healing the human body of chronic disease as well as many common illnesses.
