Why Enemas are Important for Optimal Colon Health: A Holistic Approach

Updated: Dec 17, 2022

Enemas are an important part of maintaining good digestive health. They are used to cleanse the lower part of the large intestine, also known as the colon, of waste material and can help alleviate constipation and other digestive issues.




The colon, also known as the large intestine, is the final part of the digestive system and is responsible for absorbing water and electrolytes from waste material and forming feces, which is then eliminated from the body. When waste material builds up in the colon, it can cause the colon to become overburdened and unable to properly absorb nutrients from food. This can lead to a condition known as malabsorption, in which the body is unable to properly absorb the nutrients it needs from the food we eat. I have personally struggled with this in the past and enemas are a huge reason why I no longer have issues gaining weight or keeping weight on.


Utilizing enemas can help to alleviate this problem by cleaning the colon of waste material and allowing it to function more efficiently. No matter if you’re on the thin or heavy side, malabsorption can be an issue you may be struggling with. By removing the build-up of waste in the colon, enemas can help to improve the absorption of nutrients from food and alleviate symptoms of malabsorption.





Enemas have been used for centuries to treat a variety of health conditions, and scientific research has shown that they can be effective in relieving constipation, helping to restore regular bowel movements, and improve overall digestive health.


One study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that enemas were more effective at relieving constipation than oral laxatives. Another study published in the journal Gastroenterology Research and Practice found that enemas were effective at reducing bloating and abdominal discomfort in patients with chronic constipation.


One of the main benefits of enemas is their effectiveness at relieving constipation. Constipation is a common digestive issue that can cause discomfort and inconvenience, and can also lead to other health problems if left untreated. Enemas can help to quickly and effectively relieve constipation by cleaning the colon of waste material and restoring regular bowel movements.


In addition to their effectiveness at relieving constipation, enemas can also be helpful in treating other digestive issues. For example, enemas can be used to help reduce inflammation in the colon and can be helpful in treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and diverticulitis. Enemas are also commonly used before certain medical procedures, such as colonoscopies, to cleanse the colon and improve the accuracy of the procedure.





There are also a number of herbs that can be helpful in healing the colon and improving its function. Some of the herbs that may be helpful in this regard include slippery elm, marshmallow root, and aloe vera. All 3 of these herbs are in the detox tea I created which can be used for drinking or for enemas. I highly recommend using diluted herbal tea as the liquid for enemas. These herbs can help to soothe the lining of the colon, reduce inflammation, and improve the movement of waste through the colon.


It is important to note that while enemas and herbal remedies can be helpful in improving colon health, they should be used with caution and one should be properly educated on the risks/benefits before starting. I can guide you through the process with a one on one session. If you are experiencing problems with your colon or digestive system, it is important to assess your health to determine the best course of action for you. If you’d like help with this, an iridology reading is a great option. Our eyes can tell us exactly what’s going on inside every part of our digestive tracts.


Overall, enemas are an important tool in maintaining good digestive health and can be effective in treating a variety of digestive issues. If you are experiencing constipation or other digestive problems, an enema may be helpful for you.
