The Colon


When using an enema, liquid is introduced through the anus into the rectum and continues on a path filling the large intestine, to the end at the cecum. Our colons were intended to function as a smooth running system, in order to properly flush digested waste from the body.

Your colon (large intestine) is made up of four main sections: (1) ascending, (2) transverse, (3) descending colon,   (4) sigmoid & the rectum. It's total length is approximately 5 to 5 feet and it ends at the anus where feces eliminated from the body.
small intestine length is approx. 26 ft. long.
They are called large and small not because of their length but because of their width & diameter. It is divided into five major segments. The rectum is the last segment before the
anus. The ascending and descending colon are supported by peritoneal folds called mesentery.


Below are our favorite sources for enema equipment and products that we use ourselves.  We enjoy the convenience and privacy of shopping in our own home.  For bulk herbs both Mountain Rose Herbs and Starwest Botanicals are amazing in their supply of fresh herbs and herbal tinctures.
