Enemas are High! Who knew!! How to do a High Enema!

30 10 2015

Instructions on “How to do a High Enema”.  (A “high” enema means it goes to the beginning of the colon imgres-3    on the right side.)

Supplies:

  1. Fountain syringe bag (purchase at Drug Store for about $10.00)
  2. Filtered water
  3. Enema enhances: herbs, chlorophyll, aloe vera (as recommended by a health practitioner)

Steps to a great experience:

  1. Fill bathtub 1/4 to 1/2 full of warm water (or cool if you want).
  2. Hang fountain syringe bag on shower head or and adhesive hook, so tubing can reach down into bathtub.
  3. Have 1 or 2 – 1 liter glass jars ready with enema solution. (Prepare while bathtub filling.)

To prepare:

  • Fill liter glass jar 1/2 full with cool, filtered water.
  • Heat up some filtered water on the stove. (Don’t use hot water from tap.) Add to cool water till reaches body temperature.
  • Add Enema Enhancer recommended to you.
  1. Fill fountain syringe bag 1 liter at a time. (Make sure clamp is closed before filling.)
  2. Lay in bathtub on back. Open clamp to allow enema solution to just start to flow out; shut clamp. (This ensures no air is in the tubing before inserting rectal catheter.) After lubricating rectal catheter, insert into rectum.
  3. Open clamp and allow enema solution to enter slowly. Close clamp when feel pressure at rectum. Massage enema solution further up into the colon from left to right.
  4. Turn on right side. Open clamp again, allow enema solution to enter slowly. Massage colon as solution enters. Close clamp when feel pressure at rectum.
  5. Stay on side until feel urge to release. After releasing continue refilling colon with enema solution until finished.
  6. Raise knees above rectum by placing small stool or pillow under our feet while on the toilet. Massaging colon from right to left promotes better releasing when on toilet.
  7. When finished releasing, rinse fountain syringe bag with water allowing water to drain out tubing. Wash rectal catheter (after removing it from tubing) well with soap and water. Store rectal catheter in a clean container for future use.
  8. It is a good idea to smell the fountain syringe bag prior to each use to detect any bacterial contamination. If detected, soak in 3-5% hydrogen peroxide for at least 30 minutes. Then rinse well with water. (This can be used as a preventative measure as well.) Antibacterial soap (i.e. Nutribiotic) would also work well. Remember: rinse with lots of water after cleansing the bag.

NOTE: Enemas can be used daily when cleansing or detoxifying and then as needed. It takes a long time to rid the colon of a lifetime of waste! Using oral bulk fiber cleansers etc. will ensure your colon is getting a good workout and increasing its muscle tone, rather than becoming dependent on enemas. Also, increasing whole grains, vegetables & legumes in your diet will increase fiber intake.

Happy Cleansing

Garlic What?? Yes, Enemas! Great & Gorgeous Garlic Enemas!

30 10 2015

Garlic in food is a great culinary herb as we all know, but it has some very good uses in Herbal Medicine.

Garlic Enemas are useful for the following conditions;  imgres

  1. To bring down a fever in either children or adults that is caused by a virus.  (It can be used for bacterial infections if the infection is also being treated orally with herbs or in extreme infections, antibiotics.)
  2. For men who have yeast/fungus in their prostate gland.  This is not diagnosed by any medical doctor, but I have treated men with this problem and it usually presents with either a Benign Prostatic Swelling (which is diagnosed by the doctor, but cause is not investigated.) with erectile problems, not able to empty their bladder completely or even dribbling after peeing etc.
  3. Parasite infections or high yeast/fungus in the gut.

Recipe:

Ingredients required:

A.  1 or 2 garlic cloves…if you have a very large head of garlic then use only 1.

B.  Clean glass jar that will hold up to 1 litre preferably.

C.  A “Fountain Syringe” bag which can be purchased at most larger Pharmacies.  If they don’t have that type of bag then you will need to buy the regular enema bag.  These are usually situated near the hot water bottles.

D. Kettle to boil water and a pure source of water…Ie. Filtered water, no chlorine.

E. Blender is best, but could just use a “garlic crusher”.

F. Funnel lined with cheese cloth unless the strainer has fairly small holes….if possible…if you don’t have one it will still work.

G. A thick towel or old camp mattress and pillow.

H. Olive oil or Castor oil.

Instructions:

Step 1: Figure how you can lay down a thick towel or old camp mattress and pillow for your head in the bathroom…as you need to be near the toilet!   Figure out how you will hang the bag on the shower rod or in some cases if you can fit into the bathtub, hang the enema bag from the shower head.  You can use a coat hanger and then attach the bag’s hook to it…just make sure it won’t fall down!

Step 2:  Take the 1 or 2 garlic cloves and place 1 litre of warm water in your blender.  Blend thoroughly so that the garlic is in very small pieces.  (Generally it is 1 regular sized garlic clove per 1 litre water, but if you can stand it stronger do 2 or 3, but it could cause some burning if you are not careful so start at the lower ratio first.)  To make “warm” water, boil some filtered water and then add it to water that YOU ALREADY PLACED in the 1 or 2 litre jar…check the water with your “pinky” finger and make sure it feels just above “luke-warmish” before you blend the garlic into it.  You do not want the water COLD so make sure it feels warm.  Note:  Have your funnel lined with cheese cloth ready and pour the solution from the blender into the 1 litre jar you will be using.

Step 3:  Pour the solution into the enema bag and grease the tip of the rectal piece with either olive oil or castor oil and get yourself into position on your RIGHT side.

Step 4: Get onto your RIGHT side and insert the tip and gently release the clamp holding the hose of the enema bag and start massaging with one hand toward your RIGHT side…yes the one you are laying on…as SOON AS you feel pressure close the clamp and hold the solution while still massaging.  If the PRESSURE sensation goes away, then allow more liquid to go into the colon and see if you can put the whole litre in….if you can’t because the pressure becomes to great…then clamp the hose, remove the rectal piece and jump on the toilet to release.  Repeat Step 4 until the litre of garlic solution is used up.

The key is to let the water come in slowly and massage over to the right side so you can hold it in as long as you can…up to 10 minutes if possible.

PLEASE NOTE: For children, you have to use a “bulb” syringe especially for younger kids but once they are 5 feet tall approximately you can start to use the regular enema bag.  For babies and toddlers the bulb syringe is good because only about 1/2 cup water to a cup goes in and then you can either put their diaper on or sit them on the toilet.  It is a very effective fever-reducing technique in viral infections.

A NOTE ABOUT MEN’S HEALTH:  The reason this works for Candida or Fungus in the prostate gland is because the prostate gland sits right behind the rectum and it is difficult to get remedies into the prostate because of its location, but herbal remedies can be absorbed through the bloodstream in the rectum and have direct effect on the prostate gland.

The garlic used is a good anti-fungal and will not kill off good bacteria in the gut like other herbs can.  But when used for this purpose you must make sure to retain it for as long as you can and hopefully at least 10 minutes and keep doing it WITH an oral program for yeast in the prostate gland.  (Oral programs usually contain Zinc along with herbs that are also anti-fungal, and you can use garlic orally, though for extreme cases other herbs are required.)

Female Suppositories for Yeast & Bacteria

29 11 2014

Vaginal Suppositories for yeast & bacteria, Ie., burning vagina.images-1

Supplies needed:

1. Stainless steel or ceramic bowl.

2. Clean metal spoon.

3. Organic Coconut Oil.

4. Nature’s Sunshine Silver Gel.

5. Measuring spoons.

6. Aluminum Foil.

7. Freezer bag.

8. Menstrual pads.

I would recommend making enough suppositories to last a week or more at a time, 10 days worth are the average.  You want to do this for 5 days past your vaginal symptoms getting better.  If it gets better within 24 hours then you could probably get away with doing this for 3 more days after.  What you are trying to do is prevent the yeast/bacteria from coming back.

Measure out 1 tbsp/15 mL of the Organic Coconut Oil to 1/2 tbsp/7.5 mL of the Nature’s Sunshine Silver Gel…this amount makes about 2 suppositories.  Make them about the circumference of your baby finger and about 3/4 the length of the same finger.  Mix this mixture in the bowl with the spoon.  Once mixed then roll them individually in your hand.  Do this quickly, it will not mix perfectly.  You may need to flatten out the Coconut Oil right on the tinfoil and place the Silver Gel in the centre and then mold the Coconut Oil around the Silver Gel.  It does not have to be perfect, it will freeze in the freezer fine and it will insert easily, just make sure they are the proportions above and it will work.  Place all the suppositories separately on the tinfoil, leaving space between them so they do not freeze in one lump.  You want them to freeze individually.  Place them in the freezer.

When you go to insert them vaginally before bed, make sure you insert the suppository right up against the cervix.  You can do this best by squatting down and then inserting it.  Do it right before bed and make sure you where a menstrual pad.  You may even want to put an old towel down underneath you just in case it doesn’t soak up in the menstrual pad.  Do this nightly at least 3 days to 5 days past disappearance of the symptoms.

Allergies

Allergies

       After a long hard winter in Alberta spring comes and we are waiting for it!  For those with allergies, there may be a mixed reaction to spring.  I will explain how I think allergies should be approached without having to resort to antihistamines.

       There are 2 types of allergies.  One is what I call “toxic allergies” and “true allergies”.  The first type relates solely to the liver.

       Spring is “liver” time, so that when you have allergies in the spring they are always improved by cleansing the body which involves the liver, or the “blood filter” of the body.  This type of therapy is called “Blood Purification.”

       This can be accomplished by going on a cleansing diet with nothing but whole, raw foods (veges & fruit) to doing a juice fast with veges & fruit and herbs that cleanse the liver & blood. In both cases cleansing the colon is important.

       The way this works is; when you cleanse your body you are cleansing your blood and liver which will remove toxins from your mucus membranes which make your allergic response either disappear or not as reactive.  A clogged liver and colon means a clogged nose/sinuses!

Cleansing in the spring is for everyone, not just for those with allergies.  But if you do have allergies it is much better to get the toxins out than to “suppress” the symptoms with anti-histamines since one of the ways toxicity shows up is through allergies.  Histamine will also disappear with proper water intake.  The average person needs 2 to 4 liters of purified, alkaline water per day.  Some allergies are simply dehydration!

      I have seen severe allergies disappear with a “heavy metal cleanse” or by simply using some herbal allergy formulas, allergies have been kept at bay without going on antihistamines.  Sometimes simple herbs like Licorice (avoid in high blood pressure) can be helpful, but most often a formula is required and it is individual. The one food that causes a lot of allergies is dairy products and wheat, so avoiding these two items can be very helpful in eliminating allergies of all kinds.

      The “true” allergies are usually best treated with homeopathic remedies.  These allergies will be apparent when you are done cleansing and will be allergies like; horse, cat, hay fever type allergies.  Most chemical allergies are from Candida overgrowth and leaky gut which requires a whole other program of gut healing.  But the simple pollen allergies can often be addressed with homeopathic remedies or sometimes even using pollen in very small amounts can help build your tolerance up to pollens in the air.  Do this with caution and NEVER do this if you have anaphylactic reactions.

      Grass allergies can often be dealt with with “Green” powders that contain grasses like Barley Grass & Wheat Grass etc.  Again, start small and go up to where you can tolerate a larger amount.  These formulas will often give you more energy as will the Bee Pollen.

       In conclusion, simple allergies can often be treated easily with simple remedies like Bee Pollen or Licorice but more advanced allergies need a formula and require expert advice.  Those with Horse and Cat allergies typically need Homeopathic care.  

       One remedy for allergies that everyone requires is DRINK PURIFIED, ALKALINE WATER!  

Remember 2 to 4 litres at least!  

        Have an allergy-free spring!

images-14

1/  1 package of Water Kefir Grains that have already been activated.  (If you do not know how to do this, then please refer to the instructions contained in the box that held the package of Water Kefir Grains.)

2/  125 mL of Cane Sugar  (Organic Cane Sugar is the best.)

3/  1 to 2 dried figs (Can also be raisins, sultanas, dried prunes etc. Organic is best.)

4/  Half a lemon.

5/ 1 to 1.5 Litres of Filtered Water, it can be water that contains minerals. Ie.  Does not have to be distilled or reverse osmosis water.

6/  2 Litre glass container or two different glass jars that will hold 1 litre each.

7/   Coffee filter or cheesecloth & 1 elastic.

8/  Plastic sieve or strainer.

9/  Plastic or wooden spoon.  (Do not use metal spoons or bowls or metal anything when you make any kind of culture.)

Steps:

1/  Dissolve sugar in the water.

In the container, pour in mineral water and add the sugar.  Dissolve sugar using the plastic or wooden spoon or even better just swirl the jar gently until all the sugar dissolves.

2/  Add the kefir grains, dried figs or dried fruit of your choice and the lemon as is, do not sqeeze it yet.

3/  Cover the container with the cheesecloth or coffee filter and secure with an elastic.  (It should not be air tight.)

4/  Place away from sunlight and leave at room temperature of 18 C to 25 C.

(65F to 77F)

5/  Allow to ferment for 24, 48 or 72 hours.  For a stronger kefir, ferment the grains longer.

6/  Once the fermentation is completed to your satisfaction, squeeze the lemon.  (Use plastic tongs to get the lemon out of the water.  Do not put hands into the water.)

7/  Strain & separate the kefir grains separately from the fruit.  Store the kefir grains in a BHP free plastic container either in the fridge or the freezer.  When you want to make your next batch, just warm it up on the counter in your kitchen to room temperature…and start the whole process over again.

Benefits of Kefir are:

  1. Helps to restore normal flora inside your gut.
  2. Helps your probiotic to “implant” inside your gut.
  3. Crowds out unfriendly bacteria, yeast and parasites.
  4. Can get rid of “tummy aches” and pains in both adults and children.
  5. Good for breast feeding women to take in regularly to increase digestion & prevent colic in infants.
  6. Good for restoring normal flora after antibiotics especially when taken with a good Human Microflora strain of probiotic.
  7. Helps to manufacture certain Vitamins like some B vitamins, vitamin K, enzymes etc.
  8. Can help with hormone balance by crowding out the yeast.
  9. Can help get rid of food cravings due to low normal gut flora.

What you will need:





Colon Cleansing

3 12 2013
  1. Make sure that you take Magnesium citrate capsules or powder for at least one week before images-6you start the colonics.  Then make sure you continue to take them to keep your bowels regular and soft.  The dosage is: 4 capsules before bed and 2 in the morning.  It can be lowered if you get too loose or can be increased if you are not going at least 2 times per day.  With the powdered Magnesium, the best is to start with the highest dose suggested on the bottle then decrease it or increase it as you see necessary.
  2. Make sure to take the fiber drink that works for you.  Ground Chia seeds, Ground Flax seeds, Psyllium Combination Powder, and follow the directions on my website (At the bottom of the Book An Appointment page, look for “How to take a   Fiber Drink”.)
  3. Take your probiotic daily (HMF probiotic from Seroyal is the best as it stays in your body the longest.  Ask me about this if I haven’t told you already.) especially at the beginning of your suggested regime.  As you increase your fermented foods, you will need to take the probiotic less and less until you don’t need it anymore.  You can tell when you don’t need it anymore because you will not be bloated after you eat or later in the day any more.  (Provided you are eating the diet that is right for you.  Check my website: www.hiraihealth.com for recipes on fermented foods  under: healthinfo/articles&links.
  4.  Report any problems that you may have after the colonic like; a) feeling sleepy, b)increase in gas, c) right-sided lower abdominal/back pain d) not being able to have a bowel movement for more than a day after having a colonic. (Missing the day after having a colonic is normal.)  You need to call me when you have these symptoms.  Usually if you have any of these symptoms it means you have a dysbiosis, which is low good gut flora and increased yeast & parasites.  It can be easily solved by taking a parasite remedy or yeast remedy or a combination of the two.
  5. Remember it takes at least 3 colonic spaced out no more than 2 weeks apart, (1 week apart is recommended) to get decent results and most people need at least 6 colonics or more depending on the nature of your digestive issues.
  6. Once your colon is cleaned out you will need to have a “Maintenance Program” in place to help you maintain proper elimination & digestion.  This will vary from person to person and you will need a follow-up appointment after your series of colonics.  With this program you will be able to have colonics as a part of a cleansing program or before & after travel or as needed for general health maintenance.  Cleansing clinics around the world recommend a minimum of 3 colonics spring and fall for cleansing to help keep the body free of dis-ease.
  7. Eat fermented foods daily and especially on the days that you have colonics.  If you don’t know which fermented foods would be best for you, ask.  Fermented foods help the Probiotic Supplement stay in your system better.  The suggested minimum for fermented foods are 1/4 cup minimum for the kefir drinks and 1/8 to 1/4 cup fermented veges or yogurt. (This may vary from person to person and you may have to start at 1 tsp of kefir and work your way up to 1/4 cup.)
  8. Books on cleansing & colonics:  1) Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management by Dr. Bernard Jensen. 2) Colon Health by Norman Walker. 3)The Colon Health Handbook by Robert Gray.

If you have any questions or concerns or have any symptoms as listed under #4 of this list, please       email me or call me right away.

HAPPY CLEANSING!  🙂
