I’m a big fan of organic and natural solutions to keep you healthy. While a raw diet is important too, additional methods of getting rid of any toxins in your system so that organs can function efficiently is right up there also.
I had heard about the benefits of enemas, even celebrities have started using them. When I decided to try coffee enema’s to help heal my candida, the results were amazing. I felt as if a weight had been lifted from my stomach and was surprised that I felt the bloat disappearing, my healing process was expediated, and I felt more energetic.
What is an Enema?
If you’re not sure exactly what an enema is, it’s a process where filtered water is introduced in the rectum through a pipe to soften and expel toxins or accumulated waste from the colon. The colon plays an important part in digestion, and extracting all the nutrients you need from your diet to keep you healthy. The colon also removes water from the digested food to form faeces or stool.
While there are several types of enemas, I chose coffee enemas as they are known to be one of the most effective in getting rid of toxins, especially as there are particular compounds in the coffee when introduced to the liver via the portal vein stimulate the liver to produce glutathione, the master detoxifier, and bind toxins released from the liver and then they are excreted out after holding the enema solution for 15 minutes.
I believe the liver always needs additional detox help, due to stress, modern lifestyle, diet, pathogens, bad bacteria, fungi overgrowth, the liver is easily overburdened, and needs a little help removing toxins and waste.
Benefits of Doing Enemas at Home
One of the advantages of an enema is that it’s a safe and natural process you can perform in the privacy of your home. After your first couple of enemas, you’ll be able to perform the procedure with practiced ease.
Here are some of the health benefits you will experience when performing an enema at home:
Benefit #1: Improves circulation, boosts energy and provides insomnia relief
Benefit #2: Improves concentration
When toxins build up in your colon, your body does not get the nutrients required to function efficiently. An enema colon cleanse allows the nutrients from your raw vegetable meals to be absorbed efficiently, resulting in better focus, alertness and an improvement in overall health.
Benefit #3: Provides the perfect start to a weight loss program
An average human colon can hold about eight meals before the process of digestion begins. An enema colon cleanse can clear the intestinal tract of waste matter quickly, which can kick-starts metabolism, reduce bloating and toxins, and allow for easy weight loss.
Benefit #4: Lowers the risk of colon cancer
The toxins which accumulate in the body through food, drink and skin absorption are processed by the liver and gastrointestinal system. If these toxins aren’t eliminated out of the body they stagnate and can result in polyps, cysts and cancerous growth in the colon. An enema detox is a fast acting cleanse and gets rid of harmful toxins before they can cause serious damage to the body.
Regular use also reshapes the colon which improves waste movement. This reduces the likelihood of faeces being held up and becoming toxic at a later stage.
An important note: Enemas cleanse the lower half of the colon. Colonics provide a full colon cleanse that targets the entire area. So I recommend using enemas weekly at home and booking a colonic monthly with your local colonic hydrotherapist.
Benefit #5: Improves fertility
A colon which is clogged from years of toxic waste exerts pressure on the uterus and causes strain on the surrounding reproductive organs. Excessive amounts of fat in the body make it difficult for a woman to get pregnant.
Enema colon cleansing along with fibre-rich food choices, reduces fat levels in the body. Colon cleansing rids the body of chemicals and toxins which interfere with pregnancy. Several naturopaths recommend both partners undertake enema colon cleansing to facilitate pregnancy.
Benefit #6: Clears Your Skin
One of the functions of your skin is to eliminate waste from your body. If the kidneys or liver aren’t functioning well, the skin has to work extra hard to get rid of the toxins. That’s when you find surface eruptions on the skin which are a sign of toxins which are being released.
By cleaning the colon, an enema detox reduces the strain placed on the kidneys, liver, lungs and skin in expelling toxins. With toxins being expelled through the right organs it is most likely the skin will clear up after a few weeks.
Benefit #7: Strengthens Your Immune System
Removing toxic waste material and hardened residue from your colon will rejuvenate immune tissues residing in your intestines. If you have a weak immune system, it’s a good idea to seek the advice of a health practitioner.
So, there you have it. Reasons enough for you to add enemas to your healthy body routine. If you’re the type who travels frequently, you can also carry a Disposable Enema Kit, which is lightweight and easily fits into a bag. Along with raw food diet, get into the habit of a regular enema. You’ll feel healthy, energetic and keep diseases away!
