The human body reacts to the increased hydro-static pressure by dilating the arterial blood vessels. The resistance or drag of the water is a property, which is used for muscle strengthening. The force/speed relationship obeys the rules of isokinetic training of muscle power. The buoyancy of water minimizes the efforts of gravity on the weight bearing Joints, spinal column and ligaments.

An enema is an internal bath which helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas and accumulated faecal matter. During colon cleansing, toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination.
With enemas you can prevent the accumulation of constipated waste in the colon. Your blood will begin to clean-up right away. When this happens the toxins that are concentrated in your tissues will diffuse back into the blood where they will be eliminated by your liver and kidneys. Your liver and kidneys are no longer overwhelmed by toxins and as long as you control constipation and try to avoid pollution from other sources, your liver and kidneys can do a remarkable job.

It can be helpful in any type of “unwellness” like headache, fever etc.
