Chamomile Herbal Tea Enema

   Chamomile Flower is one of the more versatile herbs!

It is touted as a remedy for intestinal gas, travel sickness, nasal swelling (inflammation), hay fever, diarrhea, restlessness, sleeplessness, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), stomach and intestinal disorders, menstrual cramps, as well as other conditions. Helps reduce cramps in the intestinal tract.  Chamomile is both edible and medicinal. The flowers are quite tasty in salads or made into a refreshing and soothing cold or warm beverage. Chamomile flowers are used in alternative medicine as an anodyne, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, nervine, stomachic, tonic, vasodilatory. The flowers contain various volatile oils including proazulenes. Upon steam distillation these proazulenes produce chamazulene, this is remarkably anti-allergenic and is useful in the treatment of asthma and hay fever.
One of the safest medicinal herbs, chamomile is a soothing, gentle relaxant that has been shown to work for a variety of complaints from stress to menstrual cramps. A muscle relaxant, and antispasmodic, chamomile also has anti-inflammatory capabilities.

Directions for taking or giving an Enema:

I have been using chamomile and other herbs in enemas on myself and others for years and have found them to be quite effective.

I have often used a herbal retention enema to help in relieving stress and stress related headaches or to relax in general. 
 Note, if made too strong or taken in too large a dose (orally or rectally), it has
a very strong diuretic effect!
