The "What & How" of an Enema
In this process, water (or the prescribed liquid) is inserted into the rectum through a colon tube or nozzle. The colon tube or nozzle is connected through a hose to an enema bag or tub which holds the liquid.

While lukewarm saline water is the most recommended, effective and safest for cleansing, certain additives may be prescribed for specific conditions as well as for therapeutic enemas.

Depending upon the quantity of liquid required, an enema may be classified as a low volume or high volume enema.

Low volume enemas may be sufficient for mild constipation. Certain therapeutic procedures such as coffee enema for cancer treatment and liver detox are also low volume procedures which do not require deep filling of the colon, and work on only the lower part of the descending colon, sigmoid colon and the rectum.

A high volume enema, on the other hand, is meant for deeper cleanses and detoxification of the entire colon. It is used as part of cleansing programs or then to correct chronic imbalances created by an unhealthy lifestyle or other factors such as medications, personal disposition etc.

An effective fasting program should also be accompanied by enemas to assist in the detoxification of the body. A fasting program slows down the excretory system, preventing the pushing out of the feces easily. It is here that an enema can help greatly.

Enemas are best done in the morning soon after answering nature?s call. A relatively clean colon helps realize the fullest benefits of an enema by allowing an unobstructed flow of the water into the colon. If necessary, it may be wise to have a mild laxative the night before to assist in a clean colon before the enema process is undertaken´╗┐
