Using The Enema Kit
Enemas are far from being a spiritual experience, yet they can have a beneficial role to play in fasting. The thought of inserting a liter of water into the intestine to flush out waste may seem beyond consideration. But the quickest and most efficient way of removing toxic waste from the intestine is an enema. The lymph glands, which line the intestinal wall, absorb and filter fluid from the feces. Flushing water through the colon causes a healing reflex. Lukewarm water cleanses the lymph attached to the colon, and waste is washed from the system.
At the start of a fast, using the kit can be uncomfortable. By the third time, the water will pass through the intestines without obstruction. To lessen this initial discomfort, live on a raw food diet for a few days before using the kit. Fill the kit full of lukewarm water, preferably filtered, spring or well water. Hang it approximately three feet above the floor. This height will create a comfortable pressure level. Release the clamp and void the first bit of water and air into the toilet. Lubricate the tip of the nozzle. Now lay on your left side and gently insert the nozzle into the rectum.
The release clip controls the water flow. As water moves up the intestinal tract, you may experience slight cramps. If so, press the clip to stop the flow. Relax for a moment and massage the stomach in an upward motion. This massaging also will release hardened mucus in the intestinal folds. As the cramps subside, release the clip again. Make sure that you have close access to a toilet for at least twenty minutes in case there is additional discharge.
Use the kit daily for at least the first three days of fasting. It takes this long to empty the intestine. Afterward, use the kit every second or third day. When the intestine is empty the digestive enzymes are able to cleanse the intestinal walls, especially the hardened deposits in the corners and folds. As fasting continues, more embedded toxins are released. You can fast 40 days on water and still release toxins and impacted feces embedded in your colon. The cleansing process works best when the intestine is empty of food. The body can then easily dump cellular waste into the intestine. An enema is valuable in other situations such as food poisoning, diarrhea, constipation. or sickness.
Do not use chlorinated water. It is harmful to the colon’s beneficial bacteria. If tap water is your only alternative, replace the intestinal bacteria after the fast with the replacement technique mentioned later in this chaper. It is preferable to use the enema on water fasts that are longer than three days and juice fasts that are longer than five days.
The more toxic your diet has been or if you are sick, the more you need to use the enema during fasting. Drug residues, food additives, toxic fat, pollutants, food additives, preservatives, flavor enhancers and contaminants are the leftovers of the North American Diet. You want to do everything possible to help their quick exit from your body.
