If I remember he stated the cool enema was used only for a few weeks to restore the muscle tone via the cool water and that ALL WARM WATER enemies destroy the colon muscles.
I have zero problem with the cool enema used for a treatment, but I know people who went to Mexico and coffee enemas used on them and destroyed their lives for life, they take a coffee enema every morning and every evening for the rest of their lives, otherwise they have no natural bowel movement. So to me the enema is a lfe emergency ONLY thing. I have never done one and never plan on one. The herbs work great and the cold water sitz bath is superior to any enema. What you send up your intestines will enter your liver and your blood stream and I see this a dangerous thing to do with toxic water, so if I was to do an enema it would be with distilled water, a little garlic or lemon juice.
Dr. Hay used no herbs other than foods. His methods work, herbs are always just an option to the correct diet. I use Dr. Hay's methods because herbs will not always be available in this drug operated world. Herbalist have been burned at the stake for over 200 years in an attempt to wipe all herbal knowledge away from the masses, these powers of evil are more powerful today than in the days they catured heralist and burned them as witches, today these natural MDS go to jail, etc.
