Personally, I worry about flushing the GOOD stuff away or sending it upstream where it does NOT belong. Or, becoming dependent. Cause mineral imbalance?
Actually, I would only do enemas if things were so blocked that was the ONLY alternative.
There are lots of misconceptions about enemas, but they're perfectly safe unless you're doing an enema every hour or more frequently. Dozens of natural healers have used enemas to great effect, + I have to. Yes, they can flush out the bacteria, both good and bad. But that's why I follow up with wheatgrass juice implants + lots of green juices coming in from the more "conventional" way, too
Add some fermented foods and it works like a charm. Enemas + fermented foods are actually much more effective then just fermented foods in repopulating your colon, because almost everyone alive today has an overwhelming amount of bad bacteria and almost no good bacteria in their colons. All of these bad bacteria make it very difficult for the good bacteria to gain a foothold (which is why probiotics alone aren't very effective compared to fermented foods, which combine probiotics, probiotics and various inhibitory compounds like lactic acid), but if you're doing enemas and eating fermented foods you wash out the bad bacteria too and the colon is ready for the fermented foods to inoculate.
Becoming dependent on enemas is another thing that's blown out of proportion, it's really not possible unless you do copious amounts of enemas everyday for months or longer, or you use very little water with the enemas. And even then the chances of it happening are almost nothing. The Gerson therapy, for example, can use up to 5 enemas a day, yet nobody ever becomes dependent on them. And I only recommend two enemas a day, and only during the cleansing period.
Besides, enemas actually allow you to improve your absorption of minerals by helping to wash away the caking of fecal matter and mucous plaque in your large intestine, which prevents you from absorbing nutrients. As well as harboring dangerous bacteria + parasites and causing severe autointoxication.
No, enemas actually improve the microorganism composition of your colon dongle know what your doing and have lots of other benefits too (mentioned above). Enemas are a very powerful tool in regaining your health, and I speak from personal experience and that of the people I've helped. Their only drawback is that they only help cleanse a portion of the colon, when the entire digestive tract from mouth to anus is in desperate need of cleansing. That's why enemas alone won't cut it, but need to be supported by a good colon cleansing program too.
