Colon cleansing eases the burden of the skin to eliminate toxins.
There is a lot to be said about colon cleansing. When I first began reading about psoriasis and its relation to
it made sense to me that having at least a cleaner colon would benefit any body's health and well being. I learned that a cleaner colon would be more efficient at getting rid of waste, and in turn, that would relieve some of the burden off the skin to eliminate toxins. I realize that this may not be an easy solution for a child, but an adult certainly could get over the initial resistance to reap the benefits. There are a lot of colon cleansing methods available today, and there are even more colon cleansing products available for purchase. But, my site is intended to help anybody and everybody, so I am about to tell you what I think is really the best way to an at-home colon cleansing.
The coffee enema is an ancient form of hydrotherapy used for colon cleansing. Why would anyone want to do a colon cleansing using coffee? Because if you research the topic thoroughly, you will find an endless amount of documentation that supports its use in healing many types of unhealthy conditions. The coffee enema increases the elimination of toxins through the liver; it increases the flow of bile, and also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls.
The procedure involves only two to three cups of water, yet the use of a quart of water, and making sure the water reaches most of the large intestine, is more helpful for cleansing the colon of accumulated waste material. If you suspect severe toxicity or are seriously illness, quart enemas are recommend initially. The nice thing about doing colon cleansing at home is that you can do as many as you like. You could do one a day forever, or you can do several a day for shorter periods of time. Either way, the general consensus is that using coffee enemas for colon cleansing is safe. If you suffer from hemorrhoids, you might find the whole experience irritating.
Okay, are you gearing up for the fun part? The best time to take the enema is after a bowel movement. You might get a little rush from the caffeine, but it is not like drinking coffee (although taken in the evening may interfere with sleep). The first time you do an enema you might find it difficult to retain even a cup of water for the required fifteen minutes. Try starting with less coffee or less water in these cases. There seems to be no harm if you want to retain the enema longer than fifteen minutes. While enemas may seem uncomfortable, most people soon forget the inconvenience.
Materials needed for a coffee enema:
2-quart enema bag with a clamp. This is sold at most drug stores, but the enema/douche bag combination is easier to use. I've provided this link to a
supply company in case you want to get these items sent to you discreetly.
Any brand of regular ground or flaked coffee, non-instant and not decaffeinated (grinding your own organically grown coffee is best).
The enema may lower your blood sugar, so eat something just before or after taking the enema.
Preparation of coffee:
Place 2 to 3 cups of purified water and two to three tablespoons of coffee in a saucepan and bring to a boil (or use a coffee maker). Use less if you get jittery the first time.
Boil 5 minutes, either turn off the heat and allow it to cool, or add a couple of ice cubes to speed the cooling process until the water is comfortable to the touch. If the water is too hot or too cold, retaining the enema will be more difficult. Strain the liquid through a fine strainer or coffee filter paper into a clean enema bag. Screw on the top of the enema bag. The enema is now ready.
Preparing to administer the enema:
Be sure the plastic hose is pushed or fastened well onto the enema bag and the thin enema tip is attached to the other end.Remove any air from the enema tube the following way. Grasp but do not close the clamp on the hose. Place the tip in the sink. Hold up the enema bag above the tip until the water begins to flow out. Then close the clamp. This expels any air in the tube.Lubricate the enema tip with a small amount of oil, but too much lubrication will cause the tip to fall out of the rectum.
Taking the enema:
Lie down on your back in the bathtub or on the floor under a towel.
With the clamp closed, place the enema bag on the floor next to you or hang the bag about one foot above your abdomen.Gently insert the tip, and move it around until it is all the way in.
Open the clamp and hold the enema bag about one foot above the abdomen. The water may take a few seconds to begin flowing. If the water does not flow, you may gently squeeze the bag. If you develop a cramp, close the hose clamp, turn from side to side and take a few deep breaths. The cramp will usually pass quickly.When all the liquid is inside, the bag will become flat. Close the clamp. Leave the tube inserted, or remove it slowly.
Retain the enema for 15 minutes. It is not essential but is helpful if the water fills the entire colon. You can assist by first lying on your right side for 5 minutes, then on your back for 5 minutes, and then on your left side for 5 minutes. If water will not flow around the entire colon, you may gently massage your abdomen. It may help to place a small pillow or rolled up towel under your buttocks so the water flows down hill into your colon.
Some people use this time to read or meditate. Others are able to move to a more comfortable place, like their bed.
Completing the enema:
After 15 minutes or so, go to the toilet and empty out the water. Wash the enema bag and tube thoroughly with soap and water.
