  • MEDICAL ENEMA DESCRIPTION

    Over time, toxic waste can accumulate in the colon and liver, and then circulate throughout the body via the bloodstream. A clean and healthy colon and liver, then, are essential for the health of all the organs and tissues of the body.

    There are two types of enemas - the retention enema and the cleansing enema. The primary action of the retention enema, which is held in the body for about fifteen minutes, is to help rid the liver of impurities. The cleansing enema, which is retained for only a few minutes, is used to flush out the colon.

    When using any enema, keep in mind that they should never be used if there is rectal bleeding. In such a case, contact your health care provider immediately.

    If you experience tension or spasms in the bowel while using an enema, try using warmer water (99°F to 102°F is a good temperature) to help relax the bowel. If the bowel is weak or flaccid, try using colder water (75°F to 80°F) to help strengthen it.

    After using any enema, be sure to wash and sterilize the tip of the enema bag.

    MoonDragon's Instruction Information: How To Administer A Medical Enema





    BIFIDUS RETENTION MEDICAL ENEMA

    Acidophilus & Bifidus - These two probiotics are excellent healthy bacteria for balancing intestinal flora. The use of probiotics helps the body fight yeast infections and improves digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

    This retention enema, which should be limited to 3 times a year and should not be used on a daily basis. It is helpful in cases of candidiasis and other yeast infections, and in cases of severe gas and bloating. When gas is the problem, the L. Bifidus enema may provide relief within minutes. This remedy may also be beneficial when high colonics have been used or when antibiotics have been taken over long periods of time - practices that can kill the body's "friendly" bacteria. The L. Bifidus Enema replaces this flora, helping the body fight yeast infections and improving digestion. In fact, this enema can be useful during any severe illness. It is great to do this procedure after a colonic or a therapeutic enema to replace valuable intestinal flora that may have been washed out or destroyed.

    PROCEDURE:

    For best results, use a plain water enema before using the L. Bifidus Enema, as this makes it easier to retain the solution for the necessary period of time. After expelling the plain water enema, place 1 pint of the L. Bifidus solution in an enema bag.

    To make the L. Bifidus Enema solution, mix:
      2 Quarts Warm Water (102°F)
      2 to 5 Tablespoons Powdered Bifidus Probioitic (Amount depends on brand name used.)

    Use luke warm steam-distilled or quality water. Add probiotic and be sure to avoid using very cold or very warm water since this will kill or inhibit the "good" bacteria you are trying to introduce into the intestinal tract (not to mention, the uncomfortable feeling of hot or cold water in the intestines). If capsules are used, empty the contents of 6 to 8 capsules per cup of water. Mix until formula is dissolved. Use only 1 pint of the solution at a time, and refrigerate the remainder in a jar.

    Another suggestion is to put 1 tablespoon of probiotics in 2 cups of water and add a splash of Aloe Vera juice. Pour solution in an enema bag and use as directed.

    Do not use petroleum jelly to lubricate the tip of the enema bag. Instead, use Vitamin E Oil (buy it in oil form or pierce the end of a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid onto the tip). The liquid will both ease the insertion and have a healing effect on the anus and the lining of the colon, if these areas are inflamed. Aloe Vera may also be used for this purpose.

    knee-chest position
    Knee-Chest Position


    The best position to assume when receiving the enema is "head down and rear up". After the liquid has been inserted, roll onto your back, and finally roll over and lie on your left side. As you are doing this, massage your colon to help loosen any fecal matter. Start on your right side and gradually move your fingers up toward the bottom of the rib cage, then across your abdomen and down the left side.

    child's position
    Child's Position


    For a child, place the child on his or her left side. Be very gentle inserting the tip and never force it inside the anus. This could damage the colon and could be very dangerous. Do not give an enema to a child under 2 years of age.

    Note: that 2 quarts is a lot of liquid. If you experience any pain during insertion, stop the flow of the enema bag and remaining in the same position, take deep breaths until the pain subsides. The resume the enema flow. If you expel the liquid before all of it has been inserted, simply begin the process over again. If pain persists, discontinue the enema procedure.

    Hold the solution in your body for 3 to 4 minutes before allowing the fluid to be expelled. After 2 or 3 such sessions, you will find it easier to insert and hold the liquid. Hold the solution as long as you can before expelling.

    Note: Always check with your health care provider before doing an enema.
