Enema :

        When a person takes heavy and much spicy food, he becomes the victim of constipation. Stool does not come out properly due to constipation and it starts to decay there. Water reaches in the rectum from the anus to clean the dirt from rectum by which rectum becomes clean. The process of cleaning the dirt of the rectum is called enema. The stomach is cleaned by enema because mostly diseases occur from the stomach. This process circulates strength and energy into the body after cleaning the stomach.

Technique of enema :

  • The machine, which is available in the market, is used for enema. A box is fitted in this machine. A different type of box is present for enema by which process of enema is completed. A pipe is pulled out from that box upon which there is a tap or nozzle. The water is boiled for enema thereafter lemon juice and 20-25 grams salt are mixed in it. Now fill this lukewarm water in the box and hang it on a wall on some height of three feet by which water starts on flow downwardly with a pressure. After that, apply Vaseline on the top of that nozzle and lie down the patient on the floor on the back or stomach thereafter apply this nozzle in the anus and supply water in the rectum (which is felt in machine). In this activity, if the patient feels pain, reduce the flow of water or stop the water.
  • Hang the machine on some lower place to reduce the flow of water. Stop the water flow by supplying about 200 ml water into the rectum and exclude the pipe from the anus. After that, move the hand on the stomach or say to the patient for walking for 5-10 minutes. Thereafter, go for evacuation activity. The water filled in the rectum will come out in the form of stool and gathered stool will also come out through the rectum. In this activity, about 1-1.5 liters water reaches into the rectum.
  • If the patient feels pain in the stomach due to gas while taking enema, give light massage on the intestines because it provides relief in pain. After giving enema, keep the water in the rectum for about 4-10 minutes and walk for sometimes. After that, go for evacuation and evacuate stool. The gathered stool comes out with water from the rectum. Thus, enema can be taken for 2-3 times. Sometimes, the patient is not able to stop water in the rectum by taking enema first time.
  • In such condition, a person takes enema for many times to clean stool. To cure any disease in such condition, the patient becomes habitual of taking enema because of taking enema for about 8-10 months. The patient should not give force to exclude the stool because stool comes out by itself after taking enema because stool does not come out properly by giving pressure.
