Enemas & Colonics: Two ancient protocols for a healthy life today
Other than fasting or consuming a blend of nature's seeds and clays, for those that prefer a different approach to internal 'house cleaning', there are two other ancient protocols you can embrace using gentle pressure hydration.
They're known as Enemas and Colonic Irrigation.
Both are administered externally via the 'back door' and need to be done right to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
These protocols work by injecting water into the colon, gently loosening and extracting stored waste, that over time and distance can cause all kinds of dis-ease to manifest in the body.
Your colon performs two critical functions in the digestive system:
- Collecting and removing waste and toxins;
- Absorbing water and nutrients from food.
- Bad breath
- Loss of appetite
- Inability to concentrate
- Skin conditions
- Stomach pains
- Weight problems.
If you experience any of these conditions, it's usually an indication that you’re in need of an internal detox or cleanse.

And if you're already in good health, doing an enema at home or visiting a colonic clinic every once in a while, will only improve your mental and physical well-being even more.
Even today's health researchers concede that a myriad of disease problems can be directly traced back to the constant and continual accumulation of decaying faecal matter in the colon - because it reabsorbs into the colonic wall, adding poisons to vital organs such as your liver, kidneys, lymphatic stream and skin.
That's why one of the best things you can do for your health on a periodic basis, is to cleansing and detox to keep your pipes clean and remove this toxic burden.
Enemas are a powerful tool and effective way to flush out the accumulated deposits from your colon and open up detoxification pathways…
What is an enema?
An enema involves injecting fluid into the lower bowel via the rectum, normally by way of some form of ‘hose’ or tube.
Most commonly water is used, however, coffee enemas are also becoming popular and both types can be performed easily at home.
Enemas are not anything new, in fact, they have been practised in many cultures for thousands of years, stretching from Africa to the Orient.
The idea came from the ancient Egyptians who first observed the natural wisdom of the "Ibis" birds on the Nile, where they would give themselves enemas by drawing in water and the spurting it with their long beaks into their rear end!
Over the generations, it's been a technique also embraced by different cultures to relieve everything from a fever to constipation, and more recently, home enemas are now even being prescribed by doctors as part of a normal course of treatment for many common ailments.
These days most people ‘perform’ enemas using a travel enema kit, which we make available in my store.
Both provide everything you need in order to conveniently and safely administer it yourself without fuss, to clean up your digestive tract and help return to healthy bowel function.
Almost immediately you'll notice a difference with how you feel and it's something you can do regularly if needed, without causing you any harm.
Colonic Irrigation or "hydrotherapy" is another form of enema which you can experience by visiting a clinic that specialises in this field.
Always look for practices that use 'gravity-feed' technology because it's much safer than high-pressure techniques that have been known to cause problems due to the aggressive nature of the water injection.
With gravity-fed colonic hydrotherapy bed, you'll typically notice that the flow is extremely gentle and that there is little to no discomfort. It's also usually completely private, as the practitioner will talk you through the simple process and then leave you alone to do the colonic yourself.
It typically takes about 45 minutes and you can even read a book or watch TV (like some clinics have these days!).
As more and more health conscious folks realise and experience the benefits of regular colonics as part of their normal Self Care routine, clinics are popping up everywhere.
Find one in your local area and give it a try. It's a fantastic habit to get into a few times a year or even once a month like going to the hairdressers! 🤠
If you're preparing for a fast for a number of days, having a colonic before you start can be a good idea, because it will allow your body to clear out the sludge be ready to absorb the nutrients faster, giving you more energy to heal and rejuvenate.
If you don't like the idea of a performing an enema at home or going to a gravity-flow colonic practice, go with the plant food-based solution to colon cleanse, which is my Cleanse Me - 4-Day Colon Cleanse or check out other options in the Detox & Heal section.
All of these methods are based on ancient wisdom and they work!
