A lot of people wonder why one of the rules of enema health is not to use tap water for enemas. Chlorine is the main answer. Chlorine is not a natural substance to the body. It is a harmful chemical. Just to give a short comment on the dangers of chlorine, it can kill the good bacteria in the gut, and in addition will add to the pressure on your body when it is trying to cleanse itself. Chlorine is not a good thing, and it can even irritate or damage the lining of the colon.

Issues Concerning Enema Health

Another issue concerning enema health is the speculum, or nozzle, used to administer the water. It is possible to damage the delicate tissue around the anus if you proceed without extreme caution. Always be very gentle with this area. Using a lubricant of some kind is essential, all therapists will tell you. Try and acquaint yourself thoroughly with the anatomy of the lower bowel before you proceed with your first home enema so that you have a good idea of the angle at which the nozzle will go in, and how it shouldn't.

An enema can contribute considerably to overall health by removing toxins from the bowel. Enema health doesn't just stop at removing toxins, though. You can add certain beneficial elements to your enema water that can help you in other ways, apart from just detoxification.

Using aromatherapy oils to add to your enema water is a comparatively new trend in enema health. Aromatherapy oils can help in a number of ways. To begin with, they are pretty much all antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, which gets them off to an excellent start regarding the health of the colon and the body in general. Also though, aromatherapy oils can help with a number of other health issues when administered this way. Do not exceed the suggested proportion of oil-to-water when using aromatherapy oils in this way, as too much can be dangerous.
