|Enemas and the Colon Cleanse
This month’s Optimal Health Network newsletter
highlights the enema and its role as an effective and
safe colon cleanse method. The stories behind
successfully and safely using the enema to address
real health concerns are important as well as
heartening. When we can see that someone else has
found the enema to work for them it gives us
permission to try (or to retry) this colon cleansing
tool to improve our own life. I am blessed to have
heard many of these healing stories that continue to
guide me along my path. I am committed to sharing
with all in order to further guide you along your quest
for optimal health.
|The Daily Enema
This story is one of the first enema stories that
inspired me to offer enemas as a service at the
Optimal Health Center as well as to start my
websites offering enema equipment.
A number of years back, I worked with a man who
had been hit by a car. He was in a coma for 3 weeks.
When he awoke from his coma, he quickly left the
hospital, feeling like new. After a few days of being
out of the hospital, he found that his bowels didn't
work. He went to many medical doctors in order to
resolve his constipation. All the medical doctors told
him to take a daily laxative, such as Bisacodyl or
Sennoside. However, even though these laxatives
relieved his constipation, he felt that this
guidance was going to destroy his colon. He was
determined to find a colon cleanse solution that
brought health, as well as a daily bowel movement.
Finally, in Denver, CO, he found a medical doctor
that told him to take a daily enema. Twenty years
later, he still takes a daily enema. He still has his
colon and he reports excellent health. I am very
grateful to him for coming to me and to the one
medical doctor that had the wisdom to recommend
the daily enema.
|What is my best choice for enema equipment?
"What enema equipment should I purchase?" is a
common question at the Optimal Health Center.
Obviously we offer many choices of enema
hoses, enema clamps, enema buckets and
nozzles. This month I will talk about two of
the enema systems that I created- the Flowmaster
and the Easy
Enema-which include the bag, hose,
clamp and nozzle for an easy and effective colon
What is it about these enema systems which allow
for an easy and effective colon cleanse? First of all,
both of the enema bags in these enema systems
offer a 2-4 quart holding capacity. In order to fully
cleanse the entire colon, one needs to be able to
take 2-4 quarts of enema solution into the colon on
the second enema in the enema series. Most
drugstore enema bags offer only ½ quart to 1 ½
quart capacity. I recommend that people use an
enema system that has at least a 2 quart enema
solution capacity and ideally a 3-4 quart solution
capacity: bringing the enema solution into the
transverse and ascending colon is what makes the
enema as effective in clearing out the entire colon as
colon hydrotherapy or harsh laxatives.
Second of all, both of these enema systems use a
soft nozzle that will safely slide into the rectum and
will easily stay in the body. There is nothing worse
than fearing insertion of your nozzle or having your
nozzle nick your anus when you take an enema
besides having your nozzle continually fall out while
taking your enema. The flex
tip nozzle and the colon
tube, nozzle choices with the Flowmaster and the
Easy Enema, both offer a safe insertion and a secure
positioning for your enema experience.
and the Flowmaster
Cleansing Programs also offer a Pump
Fluid Delivery System which distributes enema
solution deeper into the
colon than enema hose alone by easily moving water
through any colon blockages. This pump fluid delivery
system tends to eliminate cramping while taking 2-4
quarts of enema solution and allowing the user to
cleanse the entire colon.
|Testimonial - IBS Treatment
This month's testimonial is about how the enema
solution can be a key component in healing from
Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
"I really enjoyed sharing ideas with you last Tuesday
during our phone
You gave me several valuable ideas that I will
continue to implement and to experiment with for
an effective enema to fully cleanse and heal my
colon. I have
had two weeks to try a few of your suggestions.
In particular, I tried using sugar, dissolved aspirin,
in the enema solution. This enema solution was
particularly soothing to my usually irritable colon: my
colon was pain-
free for this entire week."

Optimal Health Center Uses Trigger Point Massage Therapy To Enhance Colon Cleanse Results!
By: Kelly King L.M.T.
Trigger points are small contracted spots within the
muscle, usually the size of a pea. These spots
decrease circulation, trapping toxins and wastes and
decreasing the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the
tissues. Eventually the body’s cell’s are starved and
die; this is known as “ischemia”. Trigger point
therapy is internally applied direct pressure to the
source “trigger point” which breaks up the trapped
According to Clair Davies' book “The Trigger Point
Therapy Workbook”, pain clinic doctors found that
their patients' pain is roughly 75% due to trigger
points. Trigger points can play a role in Fibromyalgia,
headaches, carpal tunnel, and back pain. But other
problems can also be associated with trigger points
such as nausea, heartburn, cramping, and
When one is seeking better health and partakes in a
trigger point massage, a tremendous amount of
toxins and bodily wastes can be released. This often
overloads an already overloaded elimination system.
We, at the OHC, have found that our Healing
Heat, Hands and H2O Therapeutic Package that is
a combination of
a far infrared sauna, then a massage and then a
colon hydrotherapy session is more therapeutically
beneficial than a massage or colonic alone.
