Difference between a Colonic & an Enema

Learn the difference between a colonic and an enema in this Howcast video featuring nutritionist Natalia Rose.


Hi, I'm Natalia Rose and today we're gonna talk about the difference between enema and a colonic. An enema is something that you can do at home. Both the enema and the colonic work on the same concept that water enters the large intestine, reconstitutes the waste matter, and then that waste matter is released. The difference is that with an enema the water only enters the intestine, it doesn't have a simultaneous flow. In a colonic, the water both enters and exits simultaneously, it's a simultaneous flow. So, where as with an enema, you have to hold the water and then go to toilet and release it. In a colonic, you don't have to get up. You let the water enters you, it reconstitutes what it needs to be reconstituted and then the waste matter flows out with out you having to move and get up and hold any water. Unless you're highly skilled with an enema, it's much more difficult to accomplish the removal of waste matter through out the large intestine. Typically, you'll just be able to release the waste matter that's on the left side which is part of the...which is the descending colon which is the very end of the large intestine.
