The Dreaded Enema? E…N…E…M…A…S……
No one likes talking about them, but they are actually quite popular (a secret underground kind of popular 😉 ). They’ve been around for centuries for a good reason.
Toxic build up in your colon is a big BIG no~no for Optimal Health, & when you’re Detoxing, that’s what your goal is right?
Enema’s can really cut down & reduce, sometimes even eliminate detoxing symptoms too, so get on board! (who wants the Headaches, Fatigue & Irratibility anyways?)
There are a few different kinds of Enema’s. Retention Enema
Coffee Enemas are a popular Retention Enema. A Retention Enema (or upside down coffee) is called so because you put coffee inside you (upside down) hold it in for between 10-15 minutes.
To make, simply boil 1 Litre (4 cups) of water. Add 6Tbsp of Course Ground Coffee (not instant, not decaf. But Good Quality Organic Coffee). Boil that for 5 minutes & Let cool. When it’s cool put in your Enema Bag a mix of 1/2 cup (250ml) of the Coffee mixture with 1 cup (500ml) of pure filtered water.
Before you go ahead with the enema you want to make sure you test the temp, no one wants to burn or freeze any inside parts! While laying there waiting, lay on your Right Side as that is the side of the Liver. You want to make it as easy as possible for your Liver to recieve all the benefits!
These are called so because they help to literally cleanse & Alkaline the Colon. A Lemon Enema is ideal for these.
Take the Juice of 3 Good sized Lemons, add that to 500ml (1/2 a Litre) of warm clean filtered water. With this Enema it is ideal to give your colon a nice medium pressure massage. Only hold this particular enema in between 3-6 minutes.
Now that you have your concoction, what do you do? Well, yes, we all know what to do with it, but really.
Without getting you all nervous or embarrassed I’m going to direct you to an amazing blog here, Jess does a wonderful job of showing you step by step the safe way of performing a Coffee Enema. (G Rated).
When done correctly, Enema’s are a wonderful addition to any detox program you are going on. They are also a great way to keep & maintain a healthy colon. If you are feeling plugged up & ‘stuck’ try 1 or 2 a week until you feel your Health is improving, then you can reduce the number to once a week, dropping it down to a few a month for a Realistic maintenance program.
As with any type of cleansing or detoxing it is so important that you increase your Water & cut down on the Caffeine & Alcohol.
