Enema for Easing the Difficulties of Childbirth

Sep 8, 2008
Colon hydrotherapy has been and still is a popular procedure in relieving gastrointestinal problems as well as illnesses resulting from or indicating auto-intoxication, or self-poisoning. The colon's main functions are to digest the food we eat and subsequently eliminate the digestive by-products. However, the colon has the tendency to stack pounds of toxic by-products. Over time, the unhealthy weight will cause the colon to press down on other organs including the bladder and the uterus causing discomfort.

Women are actually more susceptible to abdominal pains and constipation due to the changes in their hormone levels during menstruation and pregnancy. That is why having periodic colon therapy is highly beneficial for women because the procedure can effectively alleviate the pains before, during, and after menstruation.

Any woman is likely to experience constipation during pregnancy due to heightened progesterone level. Thus, she can choose to undergo colonics. However, it must be done only within the fourth and sixth month of her pregnancy and with the approval of her Ob/Gyn. Due to the administration procedure of colon hydrotherapy, the risks of miscarriage are very high during the first trimester. On the other hand, the procedure is likely to trigger premature labor when performed during the third trimester.

For years, a light colon cleansing procedure called enema is used prior to giving birth to clear the digestive system in order to avoid defecation during delivery. But for the most part, this procedure is used to aid the birthing process by stimulating contractions. Thus, the procedure is actually more favorable if done before the actual labor since it can be quite painful when administered at a time when contractions have already started.

Enema is different from colon hydrotherapy in a sense that this particular procedure only cleanses the bottom part of the colon, whereas colon irrigation thoroughly cleanses the entire bowel. One can say that enema is an inefficient cleansing treatment. However, it is efficient enough during childbirth. It should be noted though that if you undergo colonics or enema during pregnancy, the cleansing solution should be composed mainly of water and cleansing herbs such as arbor vitae, autumn crocus, dong quai, comfrey, and several others.

Few weeks after birth though, some women may actual want to go through a more thorough cleansing to lose a few more extra weight of waste build-up lingering in the upper areas of the colon to ensure optimal health restoration. The thorough cleansing of the colon tends to enhance metabolic efficiency, circulatory functions, as well as boost the immune system which can be extremely beneficial during those sleepless, tiresome yet exhilarating nursing period.
