E e a a u u! Do you mean ENEMAS? Not necessarily, but they can be effective assuming there is nothing blocking the toxins from migrating through the wall of the colon and being flushed from your body. The problem is that many of us have a mucoidal plaque that has built up over years and lines the colon. This is a problem for several reasons.
First, it prevents efficient absorption of nutrients from our food. Second, it blocks efficient removal of toxins through the colon. Third, it provides pockets between it’s inner surface and your colon where pathogenic bacteria and parasites can thrive. Fourth, it is in itself a combination of the normal mucous secreted by your intestine and undigested (putrefying) food, fecal mater and bacteria, which releases toxins into your body and continues to threaten your health. Fourth, it adds weight and inches to your abdomen. Sound serious? It can be.
The most commonly used method to loosen and remove this mucoidal plaque has been colon hydrotherapy also known as colonics. This involves inserting a double walled tube into the rectum to allow a constant or pulsed (almost zero pressure) water flow into the colon while a counter flow carries fecal mater out to a drain line. As the colon is gently stretched and relaxed by the pulsing flow, the water cleanses further up the colon and begins the process of breaking up and removing the mucoidal plaque. In reality colonics and enemas are two procedures with different, but partially overlapping cleansing functions. There are some advantages to colonics over an enema as the client is not required to retain a large volume of fluid (often coffee) for 15 to 20 minutes. The colonic cleanses further up the colon than a typical enema. The enema will rarely result in loosening or removing built up mucoidal p[laque. However, either one must be repeated several times over a short period to obtain the desired results.
Unfortunately, professional colonic equipment is expensive, trained colon hydro therapists are scarce and many people are uncomfortable with either technique. I have one sweat detox client, who is a nurse. She is under the care of a naturopathic doctor (ND) and refuses to follow her doctor’s instructions to get both colonics and coffee enemas as part of her detox program. When I discovered this, I immediately recommended that she order Oxy-Powder. When taken as directed, it will weaken, dissolve and flush mucoidal plaque from your colon. To ensure complete removal of any mucoidal plaque, the Oxy-Powder colon cleanse should be repeated. To prevent future build up of mucoidal plaque, it should be taken on a maintenance schedule. Many people like other similar products, but my experience over the years with Oxy-Powder has been very positive. It is cheaper than a series of colonics, but you must be willing to put up with very liquid stools for a week at a time to perform the cleanse. The bottom line is that if your colon is not clean, much of your other detoxification efforts are wasted!
