Why use an Enema

Why use an enema?

Enemas are used by most every culture and background. As far as you care to look, man has used tools to make his life and health better. There is evidence that long, long ago,healers sought to unplug and remove waste from patients. Giving an enema to treat illness dates back to a time before writing.
Water flowed from the gourds of medicine men and women into the bowels of the ancients as it still does today. The euphoria that commonly follows a good enema and the level of health that accompanies good elimination is known now as then. The cleaning of waste from within the body with an occasional washing is healthful and should be a respected therapy.  Enemas relieve constipation, diarrhea, dysentery, painful menstruation, depression, toxicity, colitis, diverticulitis common migraines, tension headaches, acne, allergies and fevers. They stimulate the immune system in infectious disease. The enema is used in preparation for child birth, for internal cleansing, as preparation for religious rites and experiences and more.

The colon has an amazing capacity for absorption.  For patients in need of hydration or nutrients and can't keep food down, an enema can be an invaluable tool.  Coffee enemas have detoxifying effects on the liver and kidneys and probiotic enemas can restore the bacteria needed in the intestinal tract. 
Laxitives can be very harsh and cause painful cramping while an enema is cleansing and less of a shock to the system.
