Top 10 Herbal Enema Recipes You Must Try

Did you know that herbal enemas provide numerous health benefits? They are not just for simply giving the colon a cleanse. They are very effective in providing healing benefits. Different herbs possess active compounds that, if absorbed by the body, enter in the intestinal walls all the way into the bloodstream. Oral consumption of herbs provides lesser benefits as some of the active compounds are already destroyed or altered by the gastric juices before they even get absorbed into the body.

Holding in an herbal enema for at least 15 minutes and as long as 45 minutes is ideal. The longer you hold an herbal enema, the more you allow better absorption of its active compounds.

If you haven’t received an enema before, it is advised that you first start by doing a cleansing enema before trying an herbal enema. Doing so is necessary to receive the best results. Eliminating most of your bowels before an herbal enema procedure guarantees that more of the herbal fluid will be absorbed by your body. For a cleansing enema, you may use salt water or even plain water.

Important reminders:

  1. Study more about it - it is imperative that you study about enema administration and its possible side-effects before receiving one.
  2. Know when to avoid it - In addition, take note that a lot of herbal enemas in this article are not recommended for serious and acute inflammatory bowel issues. They are only suggested for moderate and chronic intestinal tract inflammations.
  3. Consult your doctor - For women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, seek the advice of your doctor first before receiving an herbal enema.
  4. Prepare your solution safely - Only filtered and chlorine-free water is recommended to be used in enema solutions. Enema solutions must also be heated to a warm temperature, around 37 to 40˚C or 98 to 104˚ F)
  5. Know your measurements - The herbal enema recipes in this article are in liters. One liter is 1000ml. If you are using quart, and a quart is 946ml, the difference is negligible.
