Through the years, people have been using enemas for various health reasons. These include treating constipation, pre-procedure cleanse (such as a colonoscopy), and detoxification.

If you have tried various treatment for constipation and they still don’t work, a health care professional may advise you to try an enema procedure. Doing so will help stimulate the colon for a successful elimination of stool.

Before a medical procedure such as a colonoscopy, enemas are recommended to ensure that there will be no obstruction in the colon and tissues.

Even though there aren’t a lot of scientific studies to support the use of an enema for detoxification, many people still find it effective in pleasing the colon of bacteria and parasites.

For many years, different types of special ingredients have been used by various cultures to make enema recipes that are beneficial and effective in treating different health issues.

There are tons of enema recipes that are being used today. Here are at least 5 enema recipes you should definitely try.
