Why Herbal enema?

The healing properties of herbs have not changed.
What was considered to be healing herbs thousands of years ago, are still recognized as such today.

Facts about herbal plants

The physicians of the past studied herbs and worked with them. They had a great respect for them, and passed this kowledge down through generations in the form of recipes and folklore.
Our ancestors used herbs in the home. For their aroma, they rubbed strong smelling herbs on their body as an insect repellent, to hide their human scent from animals, they hunted and to allure their mates by using seductive herbs.

Herbs can be used as the whole herb, leaves, root, wood, flowers or fruits. They can be fresh herbs, dried herbs, fluid extracts, tinctures, suppositories or pessaries. Applied orally, rectally or topically.

Early humans observed that when animals appeared ill, they would resort to eating plants that they would avoid when well. It is recorded that our ancestors sampled these plants, and discovered their healing properties. We continue to learn about herbs today.


How does herbal enema work?

The mucous membrane of the rectum/colon is extremely porous. It will readily absorb administered herbs with fast delivery to the target area via the bloodstream. This route will produce the same effect as orally administered herbs, however it acts a lot faster: so many times you will see the effect of an enema in minutes due to the blood delivery via the portal veins and into the general circulation. Hence this route is excellent for delivery, for example, of fever reducing herbs to reduce temperature quickly, or herbs for soothing and nourishing the intestinal membrane. The enema is administered at a temperature between 34 to 39 degre Celsius.

Benefits of herbal enema:

Some herbal bowel cleansers help with chronic constipation problems, improve overall effectiveness of the immune system, and also help reduce the chance of contracting more serious conditions or diseases of the bowels.
