Besides going on a detox diet, you can do a detox enema to clear the toxins out of your colon.  Here are seven types of enemas to choose from:

Before choosing an enema, consult your health care physician.


Use a garlic enema when you have an infection in any part of your body. It will pull toxins and mucous the body and kill any bacteria or parasites present in the body.

RECIPE: In a blender, put 6 cloves of peeled garlic buds (cloves). (A bulb of garlic has many cloves or buds….use 6 of these). Add one cup of water and blend. Strain the water off into a two quart container. Add water to make two quarts. Fill the enema bag with this and use for the enema. If you are doing a three bag enema triple the recipe. Always use distilled or purified water in an enema and if your are doing three bags, use water in the first two and the herbal preparation in the last bag.


A catnip enema can be used for fevers, infectious diseases and colic in babies.

RECIPE: Steep two tablespoons of catnip leaves in one quart of boiling water for thirty minutes. Add another quart of cold water and allow the mixture to cool down before adding to the enema bag.


Combining catnip and garlic is effective in eliminating the bacteria, mucous, parasites and other toxins. This enema will encourage the peristaltic action of the colon and the catnip eases pain and cramping in the colon, relaxing and soothing the whole system.

RECIPE: Combine the two recipes above in equal parts and add to the enema bag. Make sure the solution is cooled.


A cayenne enema stimulates the kidneys, liver, spleen and pancreas. It also heals bleeding hemorrhoids.

RECIPE: Add one teaspoon or empty four capsules of cayenne pepper to a two quart enema bag of water. The burning sensation will subside after a while and a feeling of well being will ensue.


Slippery Elm is helpful in cases of diarrhea, colitis, and hemorrhoids. It is a mucilaginous herb and heals and soothes a scalded colon that is stressed from excessive diarrhea.

RECIPE: Use one tablespoon of Slippery Elm Powder in two cups of water. Blend and add to the enema bag. Fill the bag with water.


Mineral water pulls toxins from the colon and tones and heals the colon walls. 

RECIPE: Add one half cup Mineral Water to a two quart bag and fill the bag the rest of the way with water.


Aloe Vera aids in the healing of the colon wall, stops bleeding hemorrhoids and heals them.

RECIPE: Use one third to one half cup of aloe vera juice to a two quart bag of water.
