An enema is a procedure of passing liquids into the rectum and colon. Enemas are typically performed for medical purposes like treating constipation or as part of alternative therapies. In the past, they were referred to as clysters. Enemas are a common method of detoxifying the digestive tract. They cleanse the lower area of the colon, the sigmoid and the descending colon. This process does not have to be administered by a professional. You can perform an enema on your own by making use of disposable enema kits purchased at drug stores. Below are some types of enemas you can choose from:
You should utilize a garlic enema in case you experience an infection in any part of your body. Take out your blender and put six cloves of peeled garlic buds, add a cup of water and blend it. Strain off the water into a two-quart container. Put more water into the container to make two quarts. Fill this mixture into a cleansing enema bag and utilize it for the enema. Ensure you use distilled water for the enema.
Catnip enemas are useful in treating fevers, infectious diseases and colic in infants. To prepare it put two tablespoons of catnip leaves in one quart of boiling water and leave it for thirty minutes. Add one quart of cold water and let the mixture cool down before adding it to an enema bag.
A cayenne enema is useful for stimulating the kidneys, spleen, liver and pancreas. It is also a cure for bleeding hemorrhoids. To prepare it add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to a two-quart enema bag of water. If you were feeling a burning sensation, it will cool down after a short time.
Slippery elm can go a long way in relieving and treating conditions like diarrhea, colitis, and hemorrhoids. It is a herb that heals a scalded colon that is affected by extended diarrhea. To prepare this enema utilize a tablespoon of slippery elm powder in two cups of water. Blend the mixture and put it in an enema bag and fill it with water.
