Enemas

Reposted from http://www.BodyEcology.com

An Internal Bath for Your Colon

An enema is a method to flush waste out of the colon. It’s not such a bad idea when you consider that the average person may have up to 10 pounds or more of non-eliminated waste in the large intestine!1

Simply put, an enema cleans up the colon and induces bowel movements, leaving you feeling cleaner, lighter and healthier almost immediately.

Whistle Clean Means Everything

If you’ve read the Body Ecology Diet, you know that good health begins right in the gut. Eating a natural, wholesome diet with fermented foodsdrinking clean water, exercising, getting plenty of rest, and breathing fresh air is essential for proper digestion, vibrant health and well-being.

But all of your efforts toward a healthy lifestyle could go right down the drain if you’re not eliminating properly!

The main job of the colon is to absorb water and nutrients from food and remove waste and toxins. Over the years the colon walls can become encrusted with non-eliminated waste, making it sluggish and inefficient. When that happens, you might experience some of the following symptoms:

  • Allergies
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Swelling
  • Weight Problems
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Inability to Concentrate
  • Indigestion
  • Stomach Pains

Bacterial Gaper Delay of the Colon

When waste material travels too slowly through the intestines or you become constipated and they literally jam up, putrefaction and toxins occur. Constipation is damaging to every cell and to every organ in our body not just to our intestines. Our bodies are designed to absorb whatever is in the digestive tract… good or bad.

So in other words, if you begin your meal and eat truly healthy foods, and if you chew and digest them well, your body will absorb truly valuable nutrients. But if you leave putrefying, toxic waste in your system, your body will absorb that, too.

That’s the point where autointoxication, or self-poisoning occurs.

Digest This!

There’s no denying it – gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohn’s, Colitis, Diverticulitis, Irritable Bowel Syndromeand other diseases of the intestinal tract are a direct result of the foods we eat. Up to 100 million North Americans suffer from intermittent forms of digestive disease, making it the number one cause for hospitalization over any other group of disorders!2

Watch television for an hour or two and count how many commercials you see advertising over the counter and prescription drug products for digestive tract disorders. They’re enough to convince you that it’s perfectly normal to suffer the consequences of a bad diet, easily remedied with a pill.

So normal, in fact, that $2 – 2.5 billion dollars per year are being spent on these drugs. Two and a half BILLION!

Fit For a King

Enemas are not a new fad or something that’s only performed by those obsessed with their health. It wasn’t that long ago that enemas were routinely prescribed by doctors as part of a normal cure for illness.

An Egyptian king, as early as 1500 BC, was known to receive routine enemas by a physician who used them for regular medical treatments. The Egyptians believed that all diseases were caused by tainted, unwanted additions to food, or too much food, and understood how an enema could offer relief to serious situations.

Ancient regions in Africa, Greece, Babylonia, India and China used enemas.3 American Indians performed enemas. Louis XIV had almost 2000 enemas in his lifetime and stayed healthy throughout. And even the vivacious and voluptuous Mae West started every day with a morning enema. 4

Today the medical community has somehow disconnected itself with the benefits of enemas, and so it is up to us individually to take back a powerful tradition for maintaining health!

You Want Me To Put What, Where?!

Alright, before you hit the “Exit” button, let us put your mind at ease. The thought of an enema can be a little off-putting but they’re really much more comfortable than you might anticipate.

In fact, an enema can be a very nurturing experience.

All you need is either a bag or a bucket, specifically designed for an enema in mind, a gentle catheter, a little coconut or olive oil for lubrication, clean water and a little privacy. You can definitely get creative with what you can add to your enema but we’ll talk about that a little later…

Learn To Appreciate Enemas!

Before we get into enema-techno, let’s take a look at what you could see disappear with regular enemas:

  • Constipation
  • Candida Yeast Infections
  • Backache
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Weight Issues
  • Skin Conditions
  • Headaches
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Flatulence
  • Loss of Concentration
  • Unpleasant Breath

If you experience any of those conditions, perhaps you should consider an enema!

Cleansing or Retention – Two Separate But Powerful Tools

There are two types of enemas – cleansing and retention.

The cleansing enema is retained for a short period of time until your natural peristaltic movement eliminates both the water and the loose fecal material. It is used to gently flush out the colon.

The retention enema is held in the body for longer. For example, the famous “coffee enema” is retained for approximately fifteen minutes or can also be left in and absorbed. Coffee enemas are an example of short term (fifteen minutes) retention enema. They were made popular by Max Gerson who used them with cancer patients to open the bile ducts increasing bile flow, helping to rid the liver of impurities.5

Examples of Cleansing Enemas:

  • Lemon Juice – Just what you need to clean the colon of fecal matter, balance its pH and detoxify the system
  • Apple cider vinegar in water – helps with viral conditions and to clear mucous from the body. Great if you suffer from nasal congestion or asthma.
  • Catnip Tea – Relieves constipation and congestion and will bring down a high fever
  • Burdock Root – Helps to eliminate calcium deposits and purify blood

Examples of Retention Enemas:

  • Coffee – A coffee solution (we mean a good organic breakfast blend, not decaf or instant) stimulates both the liver and the gallbladder to release toxins. (15 minutes only)
  • Minerals – this is one you will want to retain permanently. It helps rebuild the energy of the adrenals and the thyroid
  • Probiotic – Perfect for candidiasis and other yeast infections
  • Red Raspberry Leaf- High in iron, great for the eyes and particularly helpful for women 6

Each enema requires a slightly different method, but the results for each will be glorious. When a smaller amount of liquid is retained permanently we prefer to call this an implant. One cup of liquid with a probiotic, minerals or something green with chlorophyll (like wheat grass) makes an excellent implant. They’ll quickly have you on your way to a happier, healthier colon!

When Enemas are REALLY Important

Whenever you’re feeling lethargic or constipated, it’s a sure sign that an enema should be scheduled into your immediate future. Even if you’re feeling great, releasing extra toxins can only make you feel better!

But as you approach a healthier lifestyle and begin the Body Ecology Way, home enemas are incredibly important because:

  • Fermented Foods – As you begin to add fermented foods and drinks to your diet, such as cultured vegetableskefirCoco-Biotic or our new Innergy-Biotic, you might experience symptoms of yeast and pathogenic bacteria die-off as the good bacteria begin to colonize your inner-eco system. Gas and bloating is a signal that the mighty floras are busy attacking toxic waste in and on the colon walls.Home enemas will rinse out the toxins, helping to shorten the discomfort you might be feeling.

    Fasting – If you choose to fast, enemas are critically important. You must keep things moving out of your body because your cells will be dumping their toxins quickly. You will feel miserable if you are not cleaning downstream.

  • Colon Cleansers – If you’re using any type of clay cleansing agents to pull toxins out of the system, you’ll want to use an enema to help release the bulk. You don’t want to pull out toxins and leave them with nowhere to go!
  • Liver Cleansing – Because your liver dumps its toxins into your colon, you want to make sure the colon is open and in perfect working order to move all those toxins out quickly.

The time has come…

CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio third-grader who weighs more than 200 pounds has been taken from his family and placed into foster care after county social workers said his mother wasn’t doing enough to control his weight.

The Plain Dealer reports (http://bit.ly/t68M7D ) that the Cleveland8-year-old is considered severely obese and at risk for such diseases as diabetes and hypertension.

The case is the first state officials can recall of a child being put in foster care strictly for a weight-related issue.

Lawyers for the mother say the county overreached when authorities took the boy last week. They say the medical problems he is at risk for do not yet pose an imminent danger.

A spokeswoman says the county removed the child because caseworkers saw his mother’s inability to reduce his weight as medical neglect.

One thing I can’t stand is the fact that the government owns people’s children and assumes the right to take them away from their families as they see fit.  HOWEVER, the weight issue and poisoning of kids is getting far too out of hand and someone should be stepping up and doing something about it.  There are children that are constantly sick, being forced pills that the parents themselves dont even really know what is in that pill, and are not being fed proper nutritious foods.  Your kids affect our future! 

If this case is happening then it will be used as an example to happen in lots of other states and perhaps may affect your home.  Please seek out the necessary guidance and knowledge to get yourself and your family healthy and thriving so that you wont be the next family in the headlines.

Do you agree with the state taking away the child?

A restaurant that takes donations for meals? YES PLEASE!!

THE JON BON JOVI SOUL FOUNDATION CELEBRATES OPENING OF THE SOUL KITCHEN IN RED BANK, NJ ON OCTOBER 19

October 19, 2011

THE COMMUNITY KITCHEN SERVES UP NUTRITIOUS MEALS FOR ALL; ACCEPTS BOTH CASH & VOLUNTEER HOURS AS PAYMENTJoined by local dignitaries, individuals and partnering local non-profit organizations, Jon thanked the Kitchen’s “friends and neighbors” who have assisted in the two-year endeavor to open the permanent location – among them Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna, former Mayor Ed McKenna and the President of the Parker Family Health Center, Dr. Eugene Cheslock.The JBJ Soul Kitchen began serving meals in 2009, utilizing two different pilot locations and assessing the patrons’ needs and response to the model, before renovating an old 1,100 square foot auto-body shop as the Kitchen’s new, permanent location.

“At a time when 1 in 5 households are living at or below the poverty level, and at a time when 1 out of 6 Americans are food insecure, this is a restaurant whose time has come. This is a place based on and built on community – by and for the community,” said Jon Bon Jovi today.

Inspired by the old adage, “teach a man to fish,” diners in need who come to the Soul Kitchen are empowered – they have earned a seat at the table for themselves and their families through volunteer hours at the Kitchen or other local organizations. They are served nutritious culinary dishes by the wait-staff in a lovely restaurant atmosphere with the dignity of having earned their meal. On the other hand, patrons who can afford to dine anywhere are rewarded with not only a delicious meal but with the knowledge that by dining out and leaving the suggested donation, they’ve contributed to their community.

In addition to the Soul Kitchen’s own organic gardens, natural food is being provided by Whole Foods Market Middletown, in partnership with their vendors, many of whom are from New Jersey and the surrounding areas.

By adopting the community kitchen concept, the JBJ Soul Foundation has expanded its efforts – from affordable housing to hunger – as it celebrates its fifth anniversary as a non-profit organization.

SWEET!!  Check out their website for more info.

Change yourself to change others

When Malik and I (Tiffany) discovered the truth about food and the body we were so inspired and couldnt wait to share what we had found with our loved ones.  The problem was that when we started telling them that we had discovered the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH people became angry with us and we were outcast!  It took us some time to recover from what the hell had just happened and find a better approach to sharing what we knew with people and we discovered that the best way to do was to not say nothing.  Just focus on ourselves and go as deep as we could and those who wanted to know more would ask.  It worked!!!

My sister in law recently has been slowly coming into discovering what we found and is really inspired.  She hasn’t eaten meat in months and is slowly making changes and she is looking mighty mighty glowing and beautiful and light.

One of the greatest loves that we found in our transition has been coconut oil and Regina is just now falling in love.  Here is a story from someone on the path that many of you are battling with.  Allow her words to inspire you and know that it all starts with one step at a time.  If you can’t do anything else, at least incorporate some coconut oil in your life!!  Here is her story:

I just wanted to share with you all my new discovery of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil – My sister in law (Tiffany) told me of the benefits years ago, but I was too stubborn to really listen to all the health benefits – well I’ve recently began paying attention to LABELS and have found that we are loading our bodies up with TOXINS in just about every product we use weather it’s food we eat or products we use on our body.
Most of you know that I generally use an expensive face product – the wash is 5.1 oz for $16.00 and the moisturizer is 3.4 oz and retails at $150 (I only buy it when it’s on sale for $65 – ridiculous!!) – well in my quest to find a more natural product free of a thousand list of ingredients I can’t even pronounce I had ordered some Tropical Traditions Organic Liquid Soap -here is the link on their site –  http://tinyurl.com/6j5rkrf – I bought it with the intentions of replacing my anti-bacterial hand soaps – figuring lets start there since I wash my hands a hundred times a day, lol! I read that Tropical Traditions Natural Liquid Soaps are made from 100% organic Virgin Coconut Oil, and nothing else. The scented varieties have organic essential oils added. These are packaged in a special foam pump dispenser that adds air to the soap, causing a rich lather of foam to come out. Once I ran out of my Patricia Wexler face wash I decided to try the liquid soap for a face wash and I LOVE IT! especially sinces it’s all natural Virgin Coconut Oil and nothing else! and it was even more of a PLUS that you can buy an 8oz bottle for only $ 7.50 (they always go on sale – today they are $6.50 – but I’ve bought them as low as $5.50) – so right there you can see I’ve got 3 more oz for less then Half the price of my normal wash that was loaded with toxins!
About a year ago listening to Tiffany I started using Organic Virgin Coconut Oil -again here is the link – http://tinyurl.com/6lbcarx as my body moisturizer (still had an occasional bottle of lotion around, but mostly used the CO) – and I had noticed that my skin felt silky and smooth, my heels didn’t get SUPER CRACKED in the summer time and actually seemed that my fat thighs were starting to shrink haha – when it dawned on me that it had to be the coconut oil that was doing the trick.  I thought it was REALLY WEIRD that I was using a cooking oil on my body, but it really has many uses and cooking was just one of them – so when my $65 face moisturizer ran out I said well lets give it a try – worried the OIL would cause me to break out – and well it didn’t! My face feels silky smooth and I’ve never had any bad break outs! So now the only thing being absorbed into my skin was all natural Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.  Anyone that has bad acne could really benefit from it – I never knew that Coconut Oil is an – Anti-inflammatory – Antimicrobial – Antifungal – Antiviral. In this book I bought when I placed my first order there are soo many testimonies of the different uses and how they’ve helped with many problems.  If you order through the links I provided above Tropical Traditions will send you that book for FREE as a thank you, trust me I bought it thinking well I guess I’ll get some info – not knowing I’d get A LOT of info & recipes – I’ve been super excited and really want to share with my family and friends so if you can give it a try I’m sure you’ll be please with the results!

Please stop asking me about my protein intake. Thanks.

NATURAL BEAUTY: Go inside to fix outside

One day consider making the decision to go out in public without the makeup/cover-ups.  Accept yourself for exactly how you look. If you look tired, or sickly, or whatever is the reason you put on the cover-ups, consider going inside and begin healing yourself. Beauty radiates from within and can’t be bought in a store.

If your hair and nails are brittle or dry then research what nutrients the body is lacking or what you are adding into your diet in excess that is taking the vital nutrients away from your hair and nails. If you have bags under your eyes and people comment on how “tired” you look when you don’t have make up on, figure out why you are tired and what nutrients you are lacking that is causing excess stress on your internals to make you so drained and tired. Address your stress and anger issues. If your skin is pale and brittle, read the labels of your favorite products you are putting on topically and research them. Discover that chemicals on the skin are poisonous and have harmful affects. Consider something more natural and nourishing like organic coconut oil.

You get the point?

Your external appearance is a reflection of what is going on within. You have to go inside to fix outside. And you wouldnt believe how much anger, hostility, non-forgiveness, being mean, and an overall lack of self-love shows on your outsides.

When you say “I’m happy” and your eyes show a sadness, or you do very mean things to other people, or you are covered in fake hair, fake make-up and all the best things that your money can buy- WE DON’T BELIVE YOU!!

We can all see what you are hiding anyways so stop hiding and love yourself and heal yourself.
