Washing the intestines, we reduce the load on other organs such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, strengthen the immune system, and establish the normal functioning of the entire gastrointestinal tract. As a result, digestion, metabolism and skin condition improves, the body gets rid of many chronic diseases. Colonic irrigation is used for this in our clinic in Dundee.
The most affordable way to clean the intestines at home is a well-known enema. Use Esmarch’s mug for that. Pour 1.5 – 2 litres of boiled water into that enema mug. Usually, water is at room temperature, but it is better to use warm water for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. Hang this special enema mug to a height of no more than 1.5 meters above the floor. Lubricate the tip of the tube with vaseline and gently insert into the rectum to a depth of about 5 to 7 cm. It is better to kneel and lean on your elbows, and shoulders should be below the hips until the water flows in. Then you can lie on your back, raise your pelvis and retract the stomach as if massaging everything inside. If flexibility allows, get your feet behind your head. Then turn on your right side and wait while lying down. After waiting for the urge, go to the toilet. The procedure will effectively wash the most significant part of the intestine. It’s okay if you felt the urge to go to the bathroom before you injected all the water.
This procedure should be carried out after emptying the large intestine at any convenient time. On the day of the process, it is advisable to avoid heavy foods such as fatty, fried, smoked, spicy and sweet. You can do an enema once every three months as a preventive measure. If there is a doctor’s recommendation for bowel cleansing, you can do it more often, but not more than once a week.
We can offer a seven-day cleansing course for those for whom an enema is a contraindication. However, it is better to consult with a specialist. Professionals must ensure that there are no contraindications to colonic irrigation in our clinic in Dundee.
In the morning on an empty stomach, take a laxative herbal tea such as senna, buckthorn (1 tablespoon per cup of boiling water). During the first day, drink 4 – 6 glasses of freshly squeezed vegetable juices such as carrot, beet-carrot, carrot-beet-cucumber, mixing all the ingredients in equal proportions. Eating on this day is not recommended.
The next two days, gradually add raw vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, pumpkin, turnips, a small number of seeds and nuts, except for almonds as it is hard to digest, into the diet.
On the fourth day, you can bake or boil the vegetables, but do not salt them or add oil.
On the fifth and sixth day, drink fruit juices, eat oatmeal and buckwheat porridge cooked with water, vegetarian soup, honey, dried fruits.
The diet of the seventh day contains unleavened bread, low-fat dairy products, boiled eggs, baked potatoes.
After a week of such food, you can eat almost everything, but in small portions. As a preventive measure, it is good to apply this cleaning once a year in the spring.
