How Do I Optimize Levels of Healthy Bacteria in My Colon?

optimize healthy bacteria

Frequently people express concern about "washing" healthy bacteria from the colon when using the enema.

Frequent enemas should not be a concern for "washing" healthy bacteria out of the colon. It is actually a healthy process to "wash" healthy bacteria out of the colon. In fact, up to 60% of the dry mass of feces is healthy bacteria. And, the less constipated the person, the more healthy bacteria is removed in the feces.

Worrying about "washing" healthy bacteria from the colon with therapeutic enemas is the same as worrying about "washing" healthy bacteria from the mouth when brushing your teeth.

However, optimizing the flora in the colon is important. And, like a garden, the colon must be cultivated year after year. Most people think that probiotics is the way to do this. It turns out that taking probiotics is not the only way, or even the most optimal way, to optimize the flora in the colon. Why? Because there are 300 to 1000 different species of bacteria that live in the gut, and each of us has a unique gut bacteria population.

According to research published in Best Practice & Research Clinical Gastroenterology, "Having an 'optimal' gut microflora can increase resistance to pathogenic bacteria, lower blood ammonia, increase stimulation of the immune response, and reduce the risk of cancer."

Ideally, then, a program to optimize for healthy bacteria consists of creating the right conditions in your colon for your own particular microbe population to thrive. How do you do this? One excellent way is to deliver prebiotics (substances that enhance the function of your individual beneficial bacteria) directly into the colon via implants.

A colon implant is a therapeutic enema delivery process that can introduce prebiotics throughout the entire colon, not just the rectal area. The colon implant is held for a minimum of 15 minutes, or as long as the colon will allow.

The Optimal Health Network, through extensive research and creative collaboration, has created a colon implant recipe for optimizing for your individual gut flora.

Gut Flora Optimization Recipe


First blend the essential oil formula and salt together. Then mix this with aloe vera juice in your enema bag or bowl. After your colon is cleared of stool through a bowel movement or enema series, deliver this prebiotic solution into your colon and hold for a minimum of 15 minutes.
