The healing power of enemas
The history of enemas goes back to ancient times when they were part of routine healthcare. The principle of the enema is said to originate from observing birds drawing water into their beaks, inserting their beaks into their rectum and expelling the water.
An enema is a simple and natural means of cleaning out the large, hollow muscular tube, which is the colon or large intestine. We don’t think twice about cleaning our teeth or taking a shower. It shouldn’t be any different when it comes to internal cleansing. But in our modern western culture, many people are reluctant and embarrassed to discuss the bowel and enemas are even more of a taboo subject.
An inflamed bowel can become more serious
This attitude needs to change as the incidence of bowel related illness is on the increase in the Western world. Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, such as excess gas, abdominal bloating, pain and irregular bowel habits affect a third of people in the UK at one time or another. If the bowel becomes inflamed, more serious conditions develop such as colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis and even colon cancer.

Vital absorption of vital minerals and nutrients
In a healthy colon, absorption of vital minerals and nutrients takes place through the colon wall and beneficial immune-boosting bacteria flourish. However the colon can become a collecting pool for toxins, especially if it is not evacuated regularly.
Many people do not realise that a healthy bowel should move at least once per day. By these standards, a very large number of people are constipated!
The wall of a sluggish bowel can harbour putrefactive waste which, when combined with mucus secretions, forms hardened material. A surgeon will tell you that the intestines can become distorted and full of debris-filled pockets. Absorption of nutrients through the colon wall will be impaired and a breeding ground for undesirable bacteria develops.
The bowel can in effect become a toxic pool, which pollutes the rest of the body and has a profoundly adverse effect on overall health and vitality. The liver is first in line as toxins have a direct route from the bowel to the liver via the special hepatic portal circulatory system.
The benefits of an enema
Iridologists have long known that the colon contains reflex points, which correspond to organs all over the body. If the colon is particularly toxic at a certain point, the health of the corresponding organ will be adversely affected.
For example, an area of the bowel that can be tender for some women is the point near which the descending colon takes a sharp right hand bend, on the left side of the body near the hip bone. The ovary reflex point is located near this bend.
A person with health problems in the reproductive area will often report pain in this part of the bowel.
Detoxifying the intestinal reflex area can be a vital part of healing.
So, in addition to the manual expulsion of waste, the most profound benefit of an enema is to stimulate the individual reflex points in the colon, thereby having a positive effect on the well being of the entire body, including the nervous system. Enemas also stimulate liver function. Experiments have shown that after a coffee enema, the flow of bile, which is an important outlet for toxins, is increased.
