Colon hydrotherapy is one of the most important practices to add in on your health journey, and we do ours with a special superfood touch. We make ours so delightful, that if you are already seeing a colon hydro-therapist for colonics, you may wish to stay home now and do our version of a deep cleansing “superfood” enema. Enemas are the process of oiling up your behind, laying in the bathtub in preferably a warm comfortable candle-lit bathroom, gently inserting into your rectum a tube that is attached to a bag or crock of warm water, and letting gravity slowly and gently fill up and drain your colon several times until your whole colon has been cleaned of all matter.
In this process, two things are accomplished. First is that with every colonic, you have a chance at knocking out any intestinal plaque that might be gummed up in the folds of your colon. The exit of this most toxic debris that was continuously poisoning your body for who knows how long, is absolutely key to restoring the integrity of your body’s health. Intestinal plaque tends to be something along the lines of 10 year old pizza putrefying with heavy metals and parasites. These pockets of waste never should have been there in the first place, but because of a past of eating aberrant foods, having a stressful lifestyle and getting constipated, weird things can happen to your organs.
The second huge benefit of a deep enema is that it makes room in your intestines for an accelerated dump of waste from all the cells of your body, speeding up both short term and long term healing. If you are already healthy, but feeling a bit sluggish one day, try doing an enema our way and it can turn your energy around and give you that “edge” again as a short term healing. If you have a small or big pooch in your belly, do an enema today as part of your long term goal to flatten your abdomen and attain excellent digestive and metabolic health.
How we do enemas at our house: Instead of using a one gallon or smaller enema bag, use a 2 or more gallon jug or crock with a spigot. Slide the hose off your current enema bag and stretch it over the spigot. If it slides off a tapered spigot, wrap one or two rubber bands around the connection to keep it on, being careful not to pinch the hose. Fill your enema container up almost all the way with spring water. Prepare a pot of tonic herbs tea (Click here for a great recipe from my girlfriend The Edible Goddess’s blog). Fill the pot of herbs up with some of the enema container water with the hose. Brew until it begins to boil, then strain the tea into the container. If your tea pot is small, fill it up with the container water again and rebrew. Repeat the process several times if need be until the container water is quite warm and deeply tea colored. Add in MSM only or add in shilajit and/or fulvic acid. We are currently avoiding combining MSM with high mono-atomic mineral containing foods like shilajit to avoid the potential sulfuric reactivity of the combination. Also its an excellent idea to add in coconut water kefir, or probiotic powders of your choice (with MSM or shilajit is great.) You can also add organic coffee for great liver cleansing effects and zeolites for their heavy metal, viral and volatile organic compound pulling effects. Bring your enema container into the bathroom and place at least 3 feet above the floor on a stable counter, stool or table so that the hose can reach well into the bathtub or shower stall.
Warm up the bathtub or shower stall by blasting some hot filtered showered water. We also use a space heater blasting in the direction of the bathtub, keeping it away from any water, and leave it on during the 30-45 minute enema experience. Lay a towel down in the tub for your back and some folded towels for your head and neck. We prefer enemas laying on our back with our legs up, rather than face down on all fours. Light some scented organic beeswax candles and play some music or inspirational audio. Take your pants off, put coconut oil or any organic raw oils around and in your bum and all over the enema hose insert nozzle. Stir the enema container one final time to make sure no mineral-rich sediment is stuck on the bottom.
Lay down and slowly let the water fill you up until gentle tension (no extreme pressure holding, be gentle with your intestines), then let the water go out down the drain. Ideally you take your time with this and eventually get the water to go up your descending colon, across your transverse colon, and down your ascending colon towards your cecum where your small intestines dump into your colon. This means that quite a bit of poops and not-quite-fully digested food particles will have exited you many times. You might not be able to go this deep every time, so do a series of enemas (e.g. an enema every other day for 2 weeks) so that you are more likely to tone and cleanse your ascending colon at least some of the times.
Doing an enama our way eliminates the fears associated with enemas. We boost the probiotic content of the gut with the coconut water kefir amendment, instead of stripping the colons Bifidus-dominant colony. We keep the experience in the bathroom warm and nurturing so that you finish feeling more comfortable than ever, rather than cold or invaded. We make your body feel nourished with the uptake of the water amendments (tonic teas, shilajit, fulvic acid, etc.) so that you finish fairly balanced out, instead of deprived or dizzy. However, every enema is different and just know that the discomforts of purification will pass. Hydrate well after an enema, and then consume something light and nourishing, preferably full of your favorite superfoods.
My disclaimer on enemas: Please take responsibility for your own health and health protocol. Please seek the advice of a professional colon hydrotherapist before embarking on your own enema project. Do your first enema/colonic with a colon hydrotherapist before taking the leap to do it yourself. Do not let the water fill your colon forcefully. Be very gentle with yourself and take your time.
