Enemas and colonics have long been among the more popular and consternating practices in the complementary health field. Proponents claim that enormous health benefits can be derived from thoroughly cleaning waste and stagnating toxins from the colon--which is to some extant the body's toxic waste dump. What is the truth about these alternative treatments? What is the difference between a colonic and an enema? Can you really benefit from such therapy?
A colonic is a cleansing of the entire colon completed by a health professional, whereas an enema is a similar treatment you can do at home, though it cleans out only the lower sections of the colon--the descending colon and sigmoid colon. Each uses water or another liquid (such as in a coffee enema) to irrigate and wash out the lower end of the intestinal tract
Home Remedies: Colonics and enemas are said to remove toxins and fermenting food wastes from the colon to detoxify the body.
Hi EC community. I have used this site for years and love it!
I have been doing coffee enemas for just about a year now. Sorry for being so gross, but I am always fascinated by what comes out of me. Anyway, one might think that after over a year of application (at least 1 a week) that I would have a decrease visible candida and whatnot. I am wondering though, I still see a lot of I guess "mucous" but is that stuff meant to stay/good for my intestines?.. allowing natural bowel movements to come easier?/ Act as a vehicle for removing stuff?
Let me know your experiences and thoughts please!
[YEA] I cannot recommend coffee enemas enough- I've experienced that they work absolute miracles.
The first time I did a Coffeee Enema (C.E.), I was desperate. I was recently hospitalized with horrific, idiopathic lymphatic swelling. The condition was terribly painful. I had heard a friend mention the Gerson therapy in passing one day, and the use of coffee enemas. So after being discharged, I tried my usual remedies and didn't have any results. Then I thought to try the C.E.. I looked up instructions, got the supplies, first did a filtered water enema, then did the C.E.. After a C.E. I clean the bathroom and take a shower. So after my shower I noticed my swelling went down about 70%. I must also say, what expels from the body with a C.E. is far more substantial and disgusting (and strangely fascinating) than what expels with regular water.
I also get soreness, pain, and swelling in my legs from arthritis, and the C.E. will take all the swelling and pain away immediately.
Actually, it clears out any pain I have in my body. It's as though I can feel my body flushing out the lymph and inflammation. While holding the CE in, I can feel a light cramp form over any areas of pain/swelling I have. Then when I expel, the cramp turns into kind of a "rush" feeling, and all the pain leaves.
Any lymph swelling I experience goes down, my skin clears of any eczema and acne, I feel far more alert (days afterwards even), and I feel cleansed and lighter inside. I eat a very healthy diet with lots of raw fiber, but the enemas clear any bit of bloating (I didnt know my stomach could be so flat).
I'm so impressed by the results, I'm not ashamed to admit I do this. In fact, I spread the word to people I see suffering from serious chronic issues. I can totally see how the use of CE can successfully treat cancer.
