If you’re desperate to lose weight, like I was, then you are probably looking at all the possible options out there that might help. Enemas for weight loss are often touted as being something that works. Whether they are coffee or saline enemas, there are people out there who claim that they work.
What is an Enema?
An enema is a form of hydrotherapy that can be administered by the user. It has been around for centuries, and is used to cleanse the colon. A colonic is similar to an enema, however it must be done by a professional and lasts longer (and leads to a better cleanse).
Enemas are generally conducted with water, but these days people also use other liquids like coffee, saline water, herbal tea, etc.
How Can an Enema Help With Weight Loss?
A number of people claim that waste materials in the colon can lead to an increased number of toxins in your body. Over time, the toxins will inhibit some natural bodily processes, which will lead to increased weight gain.
Depending on who you talk to – an enema can induce weight loss and help you to stay slim.
So, Do Enemas Really Help With Weight Loss?
Have you noticed all the colon cleansing ads recently? Yeah, me too. When something is promoted that heavily, my skepticism meter goes up way high.
There is currently insufficient scientific evidence that links enemas with weight loss. Most scientific studies focus on the use of colonics before surgeries or medical procedures. So it’s necessary to take the information about enemas with a grain of salt.
There are a few people who claim they’ve lost weight after an enema or colonic. But I’m not sure whether they managed to keep the weight off or not.
I haven’t tried an enema myself, but if you have, please do leave a comment letting us know whether it helped you to lose weight.
