Sea Salt Enema

sea salt is a good solution for an enema, keeping the body from absorbing too much water and reducing cramps

  Using salt in an enema will prevent the body from absorbing too much water into the system!

 When you use salt in an enema you want to use sea salt , because it contains vital minerals and elements that your body uses.  Never use iodized salt for in enema because you could absorb too much iodine , which is harmful to your body.  Your body only needs very little iodine.
Personally, I have found that using sea salt in an enema decreases the urination frequency by preventing accumulation of water in the kidneys. Furthermore, it is thought to reduce the transfer of water into and out of the colon.

An enema is a process by which the colon is cleansed. A bag, bulb or enema can,  is filled with a solution and depending upon the procedure, the solution may vary. There are over 20 different types of enemas or enema solutions. The process then involves introducing the liquid solution into the colon via the rectum or anus. The solution travels into the colon via gravity and flushes out  fecal matter and other toxic matter.

Enemas were introduced into the medical field in order to cleanse the colon before a surgical procedure or colon examination. Many physicians use the enema to prepare the patient for a colonoscopy. Over time, the use of the enema has evolved into a technique to cleanse toxins from the body. The process is thought to alleviate chronic health problems and also enhance beauty. The colon is thought to be a gateway for toxins to enter the body and affect the skin. Experts continue to evaluate the efficacy of this process. However, it is commonly used practice in alternative medicine.

The body is exposed daily to carcinogens.  These are in the form of radiation, chemicals and cigarette smoke to name only a few.  Worms and other unwelcome parasites---along with viruses, microbes, yeast and toxins invade our intestines and sometimes these things overwhelm our hard-working immune systems. A salt water enema is one method of reducing the stress on the immune system helping to flush these miniature invaders from our bodies.

The correct amount of salt to use is enough to be the same pH as your body.  Normally , 1 tsp. of salt per 1 qt. of water is close enough.  A warm salt water enema seems to be less irritating to the intestinal lining allowing you to take more solution for a better cleansing.
