Enema Home Remedies


It doesn’t matter what stomach problem you are suffering from, enema is the solution to all of them by cleaning the colon. You can get even most clogged up bowels empty within a few minutes. The process of enema involves insertion of a tube through the anus through which a solution is pumped into the rectum and the colon. Enema is nothing new in the field of medicines and has been used since ages. The Egyptians highly believed that all the health ailments are a result of tainted, unwanted additions to food, or too much food that the body is either unable to digest or due to some other reason stays into the large intestine. With the help of regular enema you can get rid of severe backaches, acute constipation, headaches, fatigue, indigestion, flatulence and all the other such day to day health issues.

The constant dumping of junk food and many other reasons takes a toll on your body which leads to problems with colon. Other than quick excretion of the feces, enema helps to ward off many diseases which haunt our entire life. You can go for natural enema by accomplishing the task of cleansing the large intestine with the help of natural home made products. Some home remedies for enema solutions are discussed below.

Yoghurt enema is very helpful for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases, constipation, hemorrhoids or colon cancer, and one of the best natural home remedies for enema solutions. The most important benefit of using this enema is that you can save the beneficial bacteria into your body and only harmful things will be discarded. It is often seen that the beneficial bacteria also find it hard to survive when someone is taking enema regularly, but with yoghurt enema it is not the case. It will do only what it is intended for. Take around a small cup of probiotic yoghurt and stir it in water to reduce the thickness. Administer it for at least 10 minutes to let it do the work. Always use filtered water, that too lukewarm.

Coffee-Bean-ResizeCoffee enema

You may find it a bit weird to do but the coffee enema is famed for its detoxification effects. The palmitates in coffee enhance the action of glutathione S-transferase, a family of enzymes which play an important role in the body’s detoxification process. Coffee administered via enema does not go through the digestive system, and will not affect the body the same way as drinking coffee does. When coffee is administered rectally the hepatic portal veins carry the caffeine directly to the liver. This is famous due to its effectiveness in treatment of cancer. To prepare the enema solution with coffee you have to add approximately 3 tablespoon of coffee to around a liter of filtered water. Boil this solution for about five minutes, and then keep it on medium flame for the next 15 minutes. You can use the solution prepared once it cools down.  You should go for this option only when you have organic coffee in hand as this directly affects the liver. This is one of the best natural home remedies for enema solutions.

The milk and molasses is very effective because it is formulated to stimulate peristalsis. For this reason it may produce cramping. The high sugar content of this enema rapidly feeds the bacteria, makes it one of the best home remedies for enema solutions. The bacteria in the colon create gas as they metabolize the sugars present in the milk and molasses solution. This gas helps the enema to move further up the colon. Also, the high concentration of sugars in this solution creates and osmotic gradient which draws water into the colon, increasing it’s cleansing potential.  You have to mix equal amounts of the two ingredients to form the enema solution. Take about a cup of milk and heat it to high temperature. Remove before it overheats, and mix molasses till it forms a perfect solution. Allow it to cool and then use it to administer.

Lemon juice is a good cleansing treatment which rids the colon of excess feces and helps to balance the pH levels in the colon, making it one of the best home remedies for enema solutions. Relief from the discomfort and pain associated with colitis may be achieved by taking a lemon juice enema once per week. When used on a weekly basis, a lemon juice enema can provide relief from chronic constipation. A lemon juice enema is more effective at cleansing the colon than a plain or salt water enema, but generally not as comfortable to hold due to the nature of the lemon juice. It is very easy to prepare the mixture for performing enema with lemon juice. You have to take 2/3 cups of lemon juice, preferably fresh and mix it in approximately 2 liters of water. You can retain the solution for the tie you comfortably can.

Epsom salt is used for more than a few treatments of many heath ailments, whether it is related to skin or bones, and even digestion. It is easily available in most pharmacies and can also be found under the name magnesium sulfate, if you cannot find it with the common name. Epsom salt is commonly used in baths for relief of muscle aches and skin infections, but it is also used as a source of relief from acute constipation and digestive disorders, mainly as one of the best natural home remedies for enema solutions. Epsom salt contains magnesium in a very high percentage, which is responsible for relaxation and smoothening of muscles of the intestinal tract and promotes elimination of the colon’s contents. Using Epsom salts in an enema is a faster and safer way to achieve effects than when taking the salts orally. An Epsom salt solution will increase the amount of water in the intestine because it draws water into the colon. This in turn makes things easy into the stomach. This should be avoided if you have nausea, vomiting issues or stomach pain.

To prepare Epsom salt enema solution, take approximately 2 liters of filtered water and mix in it 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt. Mix it well in the water and administer the solution inside till the time you are comfortable.

Other than the above discussed home remedies for enema solutions, you can also use slat water enema, slat and soda mixture, or glycerin and vegetable oil solutions to clean the colon.
