#1. To reinoculate the intestines, 1 cup of probiotic liquid is used. This could be 1 cup of non-dairy or dairy kefir or even some watery yogurt. You could also use 1-2 capsules of probiotics added to a cup of warm water. This retention enema is best held for 30 minutes. If no bowel movement follows, that's fine, as the purpose is for the probiotic liquid to be absorbed by the intestines.
#2. To help with malnutrition, 1 cup of a mineral-rich infusion is used. Nourishing infusions include Nettle, Oatstraw, Linden, Red Clover and Horsetail (there are other herbs that can be used as well). To make an infusion: place 1 ounce of dried herb in a mason jar. Add boiling water to the top, place on lid and screw cap and let sit 4 hours to overnight. Strain and gently warm to finger hot. Follow further directions below, under For All Enemas. Mint and Chamomile are two other gentle herbs that can be used to help with gas, bloating and spasms. Because they contain volatile oils, you want to make a standard tea and let the herbs sit 5-10 minutes at most. Let cool to body temperature before using.
A Retention Enema consists of 1-4 cups of liquid, held in the large intestine for 15-30 minutes.
#3. To help with parasitic and candida activity, you want to use either 3 opened capsules of anti-parasitic herbs to 4 cups of warm water, or use 4 cups of anti-parasitic infusion or decoction. Common herbs used for such purposes are: Wormwood and Mugwort (infusion: 1 oz. dried herb to 4 cups boiling water in a mason jar, let sit 4-8 hours then strain and use); and Black Walnut hulls and Pau d'Arco (decoction). To make the decoction: place 2-3 TBSP dried herb in a glass or ceramic pot (stainless steel is OK) with 4 cups water. Let come to a boil, then simmer on low, covered, 20-30 minutes. Let cool and strain. Add in 2 cups of water and use (to make 4 cups total). Regardless if you are using the infusion or decoction, use 4 cups of the "tea" and hold for 15 minutes before having a bowel movement.
When it comes to a coffee enema, this type of enema can be viewed as a cross between a retention and regular enema. 4 cups of coffee enema is held in the intestines for the duration of 12-15 minutes. Unlike retention enemas or regular enemas, the purpose of the coffee enema is to stimulate the release of bile in the liver and to increase the production of glutathione, which is an important liver enzyme needed for detoxification. The coffee enema is used extensively by the Gerson Institute in cases of cancer, candida and other degenerative diseases 1-5 times a day.
To make a coffee enema, 1-3 TBSP of light to medium ground coffee (you can grind the beans prior to making the enema) in 4 cups of water is brought to a boil, then covered and simmered for 15 minutes. Let cool, then strain out the coffee grounds. Add additional water to make 4 cups of liquid, then use. If cramping occurs or the coffee "stays" in the intestines, do a retention enema of 4 cups of Mint or Chamomile tea and hold for 5-10 minutes prior to doing the coffee enema.
