Colon Therapy | Enema in Naturopathy:
Cleansing your colon does not sound pleasant, but doctors claim that it is very beneficial in digestion and weight loss and can provide many other health benefits. However, like most lifestyle practices, it must be carefully cleaned with adequate knowledge of the potential hazards.
Colon cleansing, also known as colonic hydrotherapy, involves injecting fluids such as water to remove dirt and then flushing the colon. In Naturopathy, this is a practice that has been followed by the people since long back. This is very beneficial for the patient. As you know, 80% of the disease is caused by the gathering of faeces in the colon.
The process of transporting water in the rectum is called an Enema. This process is used to clean the rectum. While giving enema the nozzle should be greased with oil and put in the anus. The enema pot can be kept at a height of three feet from the person’s seat and let the water in it flow into the rectum. If the patient feels pain during the process then the height of the enema pot can be reduced. The flow of water should be stopped for a few minutes. This will stop the pain. Generally, 200ml to 250ml water is poured into the rectum. For 10 to 15 minutes water can be kept inside, while keeping it inside one should walk to and fro and then gradually let it go in the toilet along with stored stool. This is the simple and safest way of cleaning the intestines naturally.
