Maintain Your Health and Vitality with Body Cleansing

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:52 PM

A thorough body cleansing might help to reduce the occurrence and effects of health problems like infections, Candida, acne, ulcers, and overall sluggishness.

Your body may store different types of toxins due to various factors like stress, environmental factors, irregular eating habits and poor lifestyle. You may not always chew your food thoroughly. Many of us overeat and tax our digestive organs that have to work overtime to digest as much of the food as possible. Colon health and efficiency may be affected. A complete body cleanse may help to keep your body healthier so that your body may absorb nutrients more effectively so that you have a healthier body and live a better life.


Complete Body Cleansing
A complete body cleanse regimen might involve a colon cleanse, parasite cleansing and even a liver flush or cleanse. A colon cleanse might be recommended to precede the others as the liver and kidney release waste. These toxic substances have to pass through the colon for excretion. If your colon is not clean, this waste could get absorbed within the body again and intensify your problems.


Colon Cleanse
Colon cleansing may help to clear your colon of toxic substances and allow better absorption of minerals and nutrients. It may help you overcome constipation.


Parasite Cleansing
Parasites are believed to be the cause of many ailments. They sometimes remain undetected for a long time. Medications may not kill all parasites. Some people suggest that taking a combination of herbs like wormwood,  black walnut hulls, and common cloves can prove beneficial. But, these
should be referred to your doctor for advice before you even consider buying or using any. Some people promote herbal preparations that contain substances like olive leaf extract, pumpkin seeds, garlic, and goldenseal for cleaning away parasites.  But, none of them are proven to work. You should always consult your local doctor before even considering using any such preparation.


Liver Flush
A liver flush or a liver cleanse is intended to clean your gallbladder. It is claimed to help remove stones from the gallbladder. Some people claim that liver cleansing can prove beneficial to some degree with people that have ailments like eczema, acne, allergies, asthma, candida infections, gallstones, food intolerances and constant tiredness.

After Your Colon Cleanse

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:51 PM

Side effects of colon cleansing may include temporary weakness, fatigue, and muscle aches, bloating, acne, and bad breath.

Occasionally, it could cause diarrhea for some time.

Rest and relax after a colon cleanse. It helps you overcome all side effects.

Eat light foods like broths and stews. Refrain from eating heavy foods, as it increases pressure on your colon and could lead to digestive problems. Drink the amount of water recommended by your doctor and specialist during and after a colon cleanse. This may help you overcome headaches and tiredness.

Check whether your doctor recommends that you take Vitamin C supplements. Some people claim that it may boost your immune system and that Vitamin C is easily absorbed into your body. A better way to get the necessary amount and type of Vitamin C or any other additive is when it is part of the food which you normally consume rather than as a supplement which may contain ingredients that just add to the waste your colon needs to remove.

If your doctor approves, you might follow up a colon cleanse with a detox bath and a few simple exercises. This is claimed by some to help remove toxins through your skin.

Colonic Irrigation Tips

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:41 PM

Colonic irrigation involves flushing of the bowels with water in different amounts, pressures, and temperatures. A normal colonic irrigation process involves the passing of water under high-pressure through one tube and removing all accumulated fecal debris through another tube. The entire process could last an hour.

Check all colonic irrigation equipment thoroughly before use for any possible infections and contaminations through previous clearing of colon bacteria.

Adhere strictly to the recommended quantity of water put into your system during a colonic irrigation. Excess water can cause severe electrolyte imbalances in the blood. This might lead to fluid in the lungs, heart failure, vomiting, abnormal heartbeats, nausea or coma.

Do not undergo too many colonic irrigation treatment sessions. There can be risks of breaking the bowel wall, which could be fatal.

Only do a colonic irrigation with the help and personal supervision of an experienced, qualified colonic therapist.

Colonic irrigation cannot treat serious ailments of the colon. It is only a way to help to clean your colon and is most useful as a prelude to other medical procedures.

Always follow the suggestions and advice of your doctor or specialist before deciding on colonic irrigation.

Avoid colonic irrigation if you suffer from any disease, especially ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, Crohn's disease, tumors in the colon or rectum, or internal or severe hemorrhoids Pregnant women should never have colonic irrigation.

Colon Cleansing Recipes

Written by Science Knowledge on 6:54 AM

Colon cleansing can be an effective way of removing harmful toxins from your body. It can make you feel better and be healthier. These are some suggestions which I’ve found about recipes which may help to reduce any digestive problems. You should check anything you want to try with your doctor before using it.


Juices: You can make a variety of juices using herbs and raw and fresh vegetables like carrots, radishes, beets, celery, parsley, ginger, dandelions, cayenne, garlic, wheat grass, and others. Some of these herbs may contain substances that can have a negative effect on particular people. Always check first with your doctor. Also, check that the items have not been sprayed with any harmful preparation or possibly fouled by passing animals. Drinking these juices freshly squeezed helps retain the most beneficial enzymes, which might get lost in cooking. However, since juicing proves very time-consuming, many prefer to make juices for three to four days at one time. Preserve the juices in sealed jars and minimize the amount of air in each jar. This helps to keep the juice better. When preparing for and also after your colon cleanse, maintain your water intake.


Bentonite clay: This is edible clay with many strong binding powers. Normally, colon cleansers with bentonite clay are combined with psyllium husk and juice or water. This colon-cleansing recipe binds with the residual matter along the colon walls and helps expel more accumulated fecal material. While on this colon cleanse recipe, you may be advised to eat raw fruits and vegetables and drink sufficient water.


Raw egg yolks: Eating egg yolks may help you. Although you may find it difficult to eat them initially, you can start by having few teaspoons. Otherwise, you can mix the raw egg yolks in milk or vegetable juice and drink it. Otherwise, you can spread it on raw salad. Make a salad of red onion
slices and fresh cucumber and spread little raw egg yolk on it. Add a little salt, a spoon of apple cider vinegar, three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and a tablespoon of honey. Blend it well and eat it. Most people will be able to overcome the taste of raw egg yolk but they are not recommended for some individuals. Always check first. People that promote or use cooked colon cleansers say that you should use only coconut oil, fish oil, olive oil or cod liver oil. Some claim that these oils may be good colon cleansing agents.


Herbal Colon Cleansers: Promoters of herbal preparations sometimes claim that herbs may be helpful in removing all fecal matter and waste from your body. Some suggest that herbal colon cleansers may even kill harmful bacteria and promote regular bowel movements. Some of the ingredients found in some common colon cleansers include cascara sagrada, aloe leaf, ginger, pepper, cayenne, and garlic. These herbs are sometimes claimed to not only clean out waste, but also to purify colon bacteria and maybe reduce some gastric problems.


Other colon cleaners: Other colon-cleansing recipes may include probioticsto promote growth of useful bacteria within your body. There are also some teas which are promoted as sometimes helping some people with their colon cleansing.

Colon Cleanse Diets

Written by Science Knowledge on 6:48 AM

While undergoing a colon cleanse, pay special attention to your diet. Colon cleansing is intended to help to remove toxic substances and other waste from your body. If you eat an improper diet, you could hamper the process.


Avoid these During Colon Cleanse
You should stay away from:
• Beverages like tea and coffee
• Alcoholic beverages
• Soft drinks and carbonated drinks like Coke and Pepsi
• Pasteurized milk
• Fast foods and noodles
• Potato Chips, cookies, and other junk foods
• Smoking
• Rice

Foods that may Help your Colon Cleanse

Probiotic: A colon cleanse cleans your colon of both harmful and good bacteria. Good bacteria help in better digestion and maintain floral balance.

Probiotics may help you to restore your supply of healthy bacteria. Raw egg yolks: While they are not advised for everyone, they are nutritious and contain some essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. You can mix a raw egg yolk in a glass of vegetable or fruit juice or you can have it as a
salad dressing. If you have never had any raw egg yolks, you can start by having a teaspoon on the first day. Then, gradually, you can increase the quantity. This could help your system to get adjusted to it.

Healthy Oils: Your body requires fatty acids and essential oils to maintain the hormonal balance. the quality of your skin and for lubrication of body parts. Essential oil supplements include fish oil, oregano oil, olive oil, coconut oil, cod liver oil, wheat germ oil, and others. Each type of oil has its own benefits. Wheat germ oil contains vitamin E while fish oil has Omega-3 fatty acids. Of course, the best way to get these benefits is through regular food which you consume as part of your diet.

Kefir and other fermented Foods: Fermented foods may help some people to restore the good bacteria within their intestines. Kefir is claimed by some people to be a good natural option. Other people promote fermented sauerkraut which, they say, is also a good probiotic with a lot of good bacteria.

Vitamin C supplement: Colon cleansing often makes you feel tired and sluggish. You may feel a little disoriented although temporarily. Some promoters claim that taking vitamin C supplements can help you overcome these feelings.

Yeast Flakes: This is claimed to contain B-vitamins and to be very nutritious. It contains minerals. Some people have a scoop of yeast flakes with a glass of fruit juice.

Fibrous Foods: These foods are an essential ingredient of every person’s diet. Fiber helps to transport food inside your body and reduces the amount of waste that might remain in the gut or accumulate to form deposits.

Water: You should drink sufficient water at all times. The level of water in your body is important while undergoing a colon cleanse. Water keeps your body hydrated. Among other things, it helps in the easy movement of food through your digestive organs and reduces any accumulation.

Exercises: While on a colon cleansing diet, follow a regular pattern of exercise so that you have regular body movements. Your exercise regimen could include regular walking sessions and a few minutes of jogging.

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:49 PM

Herbal supplements are fairly popular as a natural colon cleanse. But, you should always check any preparation before you buy or start using them.

Educate yourself on the available herbal supplements before purchasing them. Always consult your doctor before you start on a herbal colon cleanse.

Next, you should check on the list of ingredients. The F.D.A. does not have the authority to approve herbal supplements and therefore consumer protection is less.

Some herbal supplements have a ‘USP Dietary Supplement Verified’ seal. This sort of seal asserts that the supplement may be free of environmental contaminants like lead, mercury, or drugs. But, you cannot blindly assume all herbal products to be safe for use.

You should not buy herbal supplements or any medicinal product from outside your country. There have been instances of toxic substances and incorrect ingredients and levels of active ingredients in some of them. Mistakes like this can cause injury or even death. Some herbal supplements can cause some side effects if taken with other medicines. You should check with your doctor for possible reactions and never buy or use anything until you are completely satisfied.

Herbal supplements can affect the success of surgery. Some might reduce the effectiveness of anesthetics and could cause disturbances with your blood pressure and even cause serious bleeding. Herbal supplements should not be used for children below the age of eighteen or elderly people over the age of sixty-five except under careful medical supervision.

Normally, if you are on heart medications, blood thinners, diabetes medications, liver medications, blood pressure medications, or Monoamine  Oxidase inhibitors, you should not start on any herbal supplements.

Herbs like Ginseng, Dong quai, Black cohosh, Ginger, Ephedra, Ginkgo, Feverfew, Garlic, Kava, Milk thistle, St. John's Wort, Scotch broom and Goldenseal may have serious effects on people, whether or not they are taking any medicines or have known medical conditions. They also may conflict with the prescription medications and drugs.

Different Natural Remedies for a Colon Cleanse

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:23 PM

Various herbs like Indian gooseberry, hoodia, garcinia, eclipta, Terminalia and chebula are claimed by some people to sometimes help to clean your intestines. Various products may include a single herb or a concoction of various herbs together.

Herbs like Terminalia chebula or triphala are claimed to be useful for some people to help with colon cleansing. Fibrous foods may act, in part, as natural colon cleansers. Fibers contain lot of roughage. They may bind the fats in the intestines and help to expel more of them with your feces.

Fiber-rich foods may induce peristaltic movements within the intestine. This can help to ease expulsion of some waste materials with less strain. Fibrous foods need sufficient water available within your system to bind with the waste.

Drinking some water may sometimes help you overcome less severe constipation problems. Water helps in easy flushing of toxins from your body. Drinking lukewarm water is claimed by some people to have more effect than drinking chilled or cold water.

Simple and commonly available herbs like ginger, garlic, black pepper, cumin seeds, and cinnamon are claimed by some people to sometimes help clear your intestines and even reduce the level of parasites in your system. Some people can combine these herbs with fresh fruit juice or dark green leafy vegetables. They say that this may help produce clean and thorough  bowel movements.
Colon disorders may sometimes be due in some part to problems of indigestion.

Herbs like coriander leaves, cinnamon, asafetida, cumin seeds, garlic, and ginger are claimed by some people to contain natural enzymes which may help in the proper digestion of food and cleansing of the colon naturally. Some people suggest that colon problems which may be due to parasite or worm infestations may sometimes be helped by using preparations which contain herbs like Butea superba, Embilica ribes, and Piper longum. These herbs are available as a single herb or in a pill form containing many herbs in a specific formula or blend.

Some people consume them with a glass of lukewarm water. I don’t know of any reliable, independently reviewed tests which tend to confirm any of these claims, so always consult your doctor for access to the latest research and recommendations.

Some people claim that substances like natural citric acid, ozonated magnesium oxides, organic germanium, and probiotics may help with colon cleansing. Other herbs like aloe leaf, barberry root, rhubarb root, buckthorn bark, aloe leaf, mint, Yebra mate, black radish root and Echinacea have also been promoted at some time as possible aids to good bowel cleansing herbs. But, I could not find any independently verified test results.

Psyllium husk or seeds, cascara sagrada or flax seeds, slippery elm, and liver stimulative herbs have also been suggested by some to help with a colon cleanse. Of these, the most commonly used herb is psyllium. This is a natural fiber which absorbs lots of water. It is also water-soluble. This fiber increases in volume absorbing water and causes the colon to expand which may help in the easy removal of toxins and mucous from the colon. Psyllium is claimed to encourage growth of healthy intestinal bacteria which might help in regulating bowel movements.

You may be advised to consume some water with your psyllium dosage. It might take up to two weeks for results. Bentonite clay is edible clay and acts as a laxative. This clay absorbs water and is said to help form a gel-like substance which is claimed to bind some of the toxic substances in the colon and helps to push them out smoothly and easily.

Wheat bran, apple pectin, and oat bran are dietary fibers. Wheat bran is insoluble while the other two are soluble. These fibrous foods are claimed to sometimes help some people clean their colon and may also assist in the lowering of blood cholesterol levels.

It may be worthwhile for some people to include a few probiotics in their diet to help replenish the stock of friendly bacteria lost during a colon cleanse or while they have been on a low quality diet.

Natural Colon Cleansing Using Herbs

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:21 PM

Some people claim that specific herbs may kill some parasites and worms. They suggest that some herbs may also help in clearing your colon of some residual fecal matter. However, herbal preparations are not suitable for every person who may have a problem related to their digestive area.
Also, they do not act instantly and you may have to follow a specific regimen for months to get results which will, of course, vary between different people.

Starting a Colon Cleansing Regimen Fasting is claimed by some people to be a good way to start a coloncleansing regimen. Fasting is claimed by them to help quicken the pace of waste removal from your body.

Towards a Well-Rounded Lifestyle: Defining Chinese Medicine

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:39 PM

If you were ever asked about what Chinese medicine was, you could think of a variety of definitions, ideas and concepts that are used in the practice. Chinese medicine is not limited to a specific set of rules or processes that are used in healing and helping one with their ailments. However, there are specific concepts that are used with the practice of Chinese medicine that can be applied in any area.

Since the beginning of Chinese medicine, there has been an expansion into a variety of methods and ideologies that help to enhance one’s well being. Overall, Chinese medicine is an approach to a holistic lifestyle. This means that with the practice of Chinese medicine is also the unification of the physical with the mental and spiritual. When one has unified all three of these aspects, they are healthy.

Not only does Chinese medicine approach health through holistic methods, it also uses ideas of natural law in order to enhance the experience of this type of medicine. All of the laws that are in the universe are inversely related to one’s body. In this practice, they are considered to be a reflection of each other. Whether you are looking into acupuncture or Qigong as a practice, you can expect that natural laws will be at the basis of understanding how your body works.

After there is an understanding of natural laws as well as the holistic lifestyle, Chinese medicine will move into approaches towards energy. This is one of the major universal laws that are applied at all levels of Chinese medicine. Through any practice of Chinese medicine, it is also said that there are specific energies that are linked. The idea behind Chinese medicine is to find a way to unite the energies and to keep them flowing in a way that is complete and natural.

The idea of Chinese medicine is to create a lifestyle that is balanced and flows with the proper type of energy. No matter what area or aspect of Chinese medicine you are looking into, you can expect to see the practice with these foundational ideals. The goal of this is to allow one to move into a lifestyle that enhances all areas of living.

Maintaining Regular Bowel Functions

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:19 PM

Although colon cleansers may be good for some people by helping them to maintain proper bowel health, the most important factor is understanding and looking after your body’s systems. Eating enough high fiber vegetables can encourage proper and easy bowel movements.

Squatting Position
This is considered important by some people but is not endorsed by all researchers or doctors.

Conventional toilets offer a squatting position. This is claimed by some people to cause some waste to accumulate in the lower regions of the colon before getting excreted.

They suggest that keeping both feet on the rim of the toilet can offer smooth bowel movements through the squatting position. Those who support the theory believe that because the squatting position causes your head to be in a forward position, this helps to straighten your colon and make excretion of fecal matter easier and more complete. They also suggest that this may also help people with hemorrhoids. Their view is that this position allows fecal matter to fall off easily, so there is no strain or pressure on the veins.

Their view is that sitting on a toilet seat may cause the colon to be curved at the end during excretion which may prevents complete clearing of the colon and causes some fecal matter to be left behind in the colon.

Maintaining your General Health

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:06 PM

These tips will help you to get the best results from your colon cleansing procedure.

Always keep your body fully hydrated. That might require you to drink up to eight or ten glasses of water.

This helps maintain the necessary electrolyte balance in your body. Many people don’t realize that your brain is one of the first body organs to be negatively affected by lack of hydration in your body.

Also, drinking coffee, tea or sodas drains extra valuable water from your system because water is used to carry the waste products produced from those other liquids out of your body. Always have more water after drinking those sort of liquids or, better, reduce your intake of them. Some people take regular vitamin C supplements because they believe it may help to preserve the necessary level of nutrients and vitamins in their bodies.

But, it is better to get as much as possible of the essential nutrients and vitamins from regular food rather than using supplements. Other people supplement their diet with Yeast Flakes by mixing it in milk or juices.

Eat food in a calm and stress-free environment. Include spices like ginger in your daily diet. Only have an enema or colonic if there is a demonstrable need, not because it is promoted through a magazine article, television show or because many of your friends are having them.

Choosing An Appropriate Colon Cleanser

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:04 PM

When choosing a colon cleanser, you should locate a cleanser that not only eliminates fecal buildup but also may help your body to regularize bowel movements.

Before purchasing any product, you should consult your doctor. Don’t just read and believe the testimonials and product description. Even if someone has really had excellent results with a product, they are unique and you should only consider using the product or procedure which is safest and most suitable for you. You’re also unique and any damage may be hard, expensive and painful to repair.

Starting a Colon Cleansing Regimen

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:02 PM

The first step towards an effective colon cleanse is to quit all poor dietary and eating habits.

This will take some time, as you probably will not be able to give up your eating habits immediately.

Once you have done this, you can prepare for your colon cleanse.Avoiding junk foods and eatingmore healthy foods before a cleanse is worth considering.

Fasting could prove helpful for some people. Some people have a juice fast or a day of complete fasting before starting on a colon-cleansing program.

Some have a “water fast” by drinking only water with, perhaps, a little salt. Some other people have a juice fast by drinking only fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Fasting of any kind is not mandatory and any particular type may have negative effects on some people. You should always consult your doctor before trying any sort of fast. Some people only eat light meals for few days prior to a colon cleanse.

The West Meets the East: Using Science to Prove Chinese Medicine

Written by Science Knowledge on 7:52 AM

Even though Chinese medicine has been used as an effective method for over 5,000 years, Western scientific proof continues to debate whether this is a logical method to help with healing. If you are interested in Chinese medicine, but are not certain of its effectiveness, you can look at the various research studies that have helped others to reach conclusions about its effectiveness.

The most debated science between East and West is the use of acupuncture as a medicine. At this point, the research studies have not  led to any complete conclusions about whether acupuncture can be considered a science. At the same time, research indicates that the use of meridians in acupuncture is effective in healing. Scientists have also stated that because the treatment is harmless, it can be used, and simply needs to have more investigations related to it.

Another debate that has been studied by Western scientists is herbal  medicines that are used from traditional Chinese medicine methods. While some of these have not been studied, other parts of the herbs are used in pharmaceutical medications that are prescribed to patients. Chinese wormwood, Ephedra, and artemisinin are some examples of ancient remedies that have moved into Western medicine from Chinese ideals.

One agreement that all Western research shows, with the various ideas of Chinese medicine, is that the treatments are safe. All of the medical studies indicate that even if the medications are not scientifically proven, they are still not detrimental to one’s health and most have few side effects. Because this is a proven point to the holistic methods, most scientists will also state that it is simply a lack of research from the medicine that is used in Chinese philosophies.

From the philosophy to the science, Chinese medication is a debated concept in Western society. However, there is also a growth and a beginning to understanding the concepts that have been used and experimented with over time. Through the various techniques of Chinese medicine to the continuous use by individuals who are looking for holistic health, Chinese medicine continues to become prominent in Western society.

Homemade Colon Cleanses

Written by Science Knowledge on 4:59 PM

There are different types of homemade colon cleanses.
All these products take time to cleanse your colon and do not offer instant results.

These methods include:

Juices Method
You consume mostly raw fruit and vegetable juices. Juices should be fresh to help preserve all the natural enzymes, which might be destroyed or removed during cooking and processing.


Bentonite clay and psyllium husk mix
With this method of homemade colon cleansing, you mix psyllium husk and Bentonite clay with water or juice, make it into a shake, and drink it. The clay is claimed to bind with the fecal matter.
The psyllium husk is supposed to mix with the water, making your fecal matter softer and increase the volume of the fecal matter. Both substances are claimed to help easy movement of fecal matter within the colon and then help with easier excretion.

The Points of Acupuncture: Fitting Together Holistic Health

Written by Science Knowledge on 2:36 PM

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that is used to help restore health. By focusing on specific points in the body, acupuncturists are able to find the way in which the body’s energy is flowing and find new ways to make sure that everything flows properly. This helps one to remain balanced and holistically healthy.

Most of us know that acupuncture will find specific points in the body and place needles in that area in order to restore or unblock energy in the body. Understanding the different points that an acupuncturist looks for will help one to understand why the different points of the body and how these link together in this form of Chinese medicine.

The first sets of points that are used in acupuncture are transporting points. There are five known transporting points that are focused on throughout the body. These will mostly be found in the legs and arms. Each of these transporting points is named after characteristics of water, and all hold the same characteristics that a water form would. For example, the sea is where the points connect energy with the body to the organs because it is a set of deeper points in the body.

From here, the points will be determined by the five elements of the earth. These are usually found at finger and toe tips in the body. For an acupuncturist, it is important that the five elements are represented and flowing with the right Qi in all of the points that they should be found. Yuan-source points are also important to examine. These are the points that will link all of the organs together. Each point represents one organ.

If you have ever seen acupuncture at work, you know that the needles will all be placed into a person’s body at different lengths. This also links directly to the points that are being examined in the body. The shallowest set of points is known as the Xi-Accumulating Cleft Points. These are wider and shallower spots that make it easy for Qi to become blocked. The upper third of the body has a special set of points that will be used. These are known as the window to sky points and are directly linked to one’s spirit and relationship from heaven to earth.

Mu-Front-Alarm Points are also examined. These are in the front of the body and are also associated with organs. Only the organs that have been diagnosed as blocked will have needles placed to help their flow. Of course, everything that is done to the front also has to be done to the back. Shu-Back Points are the points that correspond with the front diagnosis, only on the other side of the body.

Knowing the different points as an acupuncturist is one of the most important parts of understanding how to heal. By beginning this process and finding the points that need different types of Qi unblocked, one will begin to feel the difference and begin to heal.

Choosing the Right Colon Cleansing Products for You

Written by Science Knowledge on 4:54 PM

There are various colon-cleansing products. Consult your doctor about which products might be okay for you. Deal only with reputable companies which abide by all rules and regulations applicable in your country and state.

Reviews and customer testimonials may be biased or even inaccurate. Always check the expiry date of any colon cleanser before use. Choices for assisting with colon cleansing may include:


Herbal Products
Herbal products are claimed to be usually fairly gentle. Claims are made for products that contain such herbs as basil leaves, coriander leaves and even mint leaves, but always consult your doctor before even thinking about purchasing or using any colon cleansing products. Herbal products may be too strong for you, especially at first.

Psyllium
This is a natural product extracted from psyllium seed husks. Psyllium is a water-soluble fiber and forms a thick mucilage if mixed with water. This mucilage is claimed to help push out waste from your colon. You can take daily doses of psyllium for a natural cleanse. However, it is best to take sufficient water with psyllium to get the best consistency. Always follow directions carefully.

Replacing vitamins, minerals and nutrients
Colon cleansers may clear your colon of some essential nutrients and vitamins. Some people claim that taking regular vitamin and nutrient supplements may help to restore the levels of some nutrients that your body needs. But the various mixtures that are sold have different levels of the various substances and most nutrients are better absorbed when part of your regular diet.

Probiotics
Most colon cleanser kits include probiotics. Your colon contains both good and bad bacteria. Colon cleansing may wash away both good and bad bacteria. Probiotic supplements are claimed to sometimes help to replenish the stock of good bacteria.

Procedure for Enema Administration

Written by Science Knowledge on 4:51 PM

If you try to self-administer an enema, suspend the hook at a proper height and place the bath towel in the proper position.

The water temperature should be little more than the body temperature. Be very careful about this because water that is too hot could damage mucosa while it could cause cramps if it is too cold.

If you have a combination hot water bottle and syringe, or an enema can, empty the sachet of castile soap into it and then fill it with warm water. For disposable bags, fill the bag with one-third water and thereafter pour the castile soap. This may prevent any running out of enema solution after expelling of the air.

It is preferable to use distilled water or other sterile water. Lubricate the rectal nozzle with Vaseline, K-Y jelly, or cold cream. Lubricate your anal area thoroughly with the lubricant.

Some people lubricate the inner area of their rectum which is difficult to try to make a protective covering against the effects of the passage of the hard wastes during the enema.

Hang the enema bag on the hook.

Lie in the proper position. Maintain control of the shut-off bag with your left hand. If lying on the bathroom floor, lie on your back with both legs drawn up and knees bent. Use one or two pillows underneath your chest and lean on them if somebody else is giving you an enema. Insert the rectal tube gently and not too far into the rectum. Gently rotate and twist the tube for better insertion.

Open the shut-off valve and allow the solution to flow gently. If you feel any discomfort, stop the flow for some time and start again when you are ready. You can interrupt the flow as many times as you want. Taking small and deep breaths in between may also be helpful. You will feel full once the enema progresses.

Once you empty the bag of solution, clamp the shut-off, and remove the rectal tube slowly.

Remain in the same position for some time to retain the solution for the length of time which your doctor advised you. Go the toilet and expel the enema. You may require many visits to the toilet, as the enema is not likely to be entirely expelled with a single visit. Clean any multi-use equipment thoroughly with appropriate cleaning agents and hang it up to dry completely.

It is very important that the equipment be cleaned to a very high standard.

Equipment for an Enema

Written by Science Knowledge on 7:33 PM

Enema bag or can
If you are self-administering an enema, you might use a hot water bottle or fountain syringe to help you manage the bag easily after it is filled. If somebody else administers an enema on you, they might use a stainless steel irrigation can. Although this is expensive equipment, it may prove easier to set up and clean. Frequent travelers might make use of a folding enema bag travel kit or disposable enema bag units as are available in hospitals. The different equipment for enemas are available at pharmacies and online drugstores.

Davol colon tube
This flexible red rubber tube attaches to the hard plastic enema tip. This is claimed to be a safe and comfortable attachment. The tubes are available in various sizes denoted by numbers which denote the inner diameter of the tube. Hence, higher numbers can allow more solution to pass at any given time. Normally, Fr. #26 to Fr. #30 is considered the size which might be used for an average adult. These tubes are available from medical supply stores.

Castile enema soap
This is mild cleansing enema soap. It is claimed to be able to bring relief in some cases of stubborn constipation. It is available in a liquid form in a box of fifty single-use packets. It is inexpensive and easily available across various surgical supply stores.

K-Y Jelly, Vaseline or Cold cream
This is a lubricant useful for easy and comfortable insertion of the rectal tube. Where to hang the enema bag You can place a hook or a nail to suspend the bag from the wall. Use a strong cord to hang the bag around eighteen inches above your rectum while you lie on your side. If you want to use an enema in the bathtub, loop a string over the shower pole or use of an ‘S’ hook to suspend the bag.

Pad or heavy bath towel
Place this beneath the buttocks to absorb any leakage. Placing it in the tub can be more comfortable than laying in direct contact with the cold surface of the tub.

How to Give an Enema

Written by Science Knowledge on 6:47 PM

This procedure should never be done without first consulting your doctor for advice based on your personal medical history and the current state of your health.

An enema is claimed by some people to be more gentle than some laxatives and suppositories. The enema works only to clear the last two to three feet of your digestive tract.
One useful point is that you may be able to schedule your plans so that you can time your enema conveniently. Laxatives may start working anytime and not necessarily in line with your schedule.

The Importance of the Beat: Checking Your Pulse for a Diagnosis

Written by Science Knowledge on 4:28 PM

Chinese medicine will always use natural observations in order to determine which parts of the body may be off in their energy. By observing the external functions of the body, they can make assessments on how this affects the internal structure. From here, they will be able to decide on how to change the energy flow.

One of the most important areas of observation for Chinese medicine diagnosis is the pulse. The different pulses of the body are so important to Chinese medicine, that they are considered an art by learning how to use them appropriately. Usually, only the most trained practitioners can find how to use the pulse properly.

The reason why the pulse is important to the observations is because Chinese medicine has found connections between the pulse and every area of the body. In Western medicine, there is an understanding that the pulse of the heart is located in the wrist and also the neck. In Chinese medicine, there are also pulses for the kidney, liver, and other body areas. Not only do all of the internal organs have specific pulses in different areas of the body, but these also have different depths. This means that a reading of a pulse can be heard in ‘layers’ in each position. Typically, each pulse will have three different depths that can be observed. These can be found in nine different areas when the diagnosis is being made from pulse.

If a practitioner is looking for a diagnosis for a pulse, they will look for several attributes. If you are in Chinese medicine, you will most likely know about twenty-eight different characteristics to look for. These may be related to how the pulse sounds, the rate it is beating at, and other factors such as this. The characteristics that are determined will also help to draw conclusions about which areas of the body are off of their regular energy flow.

If you are moving into Chinese medicine, expect your pulses to be checked. This is one of the main considerations in Chinese medicine, and is never over looked in the diagnosis. The art of checking the pulse in Chinese medicine is one of the main foundations for understanding how the internal Qi of someone is functioning.

About Me

In its broadest sense, science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") refers to any systematic knowledge or practice. In its more usual restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Fields of science are commonly classified along two major lines: natural sciences, which study natural phenomena (including biological life), and social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These groupings are empirical sciences, which means the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being experimented for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions.
