In this video I explain and demonstrate the entire enema cleanse process at home as a beginner (excluding the actual insertion!). This is my first ever attempt, using herbal (Sage tea). The enema cleanse forms part of a 5-day juice fast that I have been prescribed my a fasting expert.

I show the Enema Kit used to operate the procedure, how it flows, how much herbal tea you should put in (including the temperature), and then (PG-rated) demonstrate the process of the herbal tea going into the body and the after effects while the 1250 ml of herbal tea is still inside me. What a cleansing experience!

My consultation with Tim Altman (Fasting Expert):

Hello oh tim it's cam nichols.

How are you too bad.

You know um how.

You said I could call you've had any queries yep yep.

I just said I just set up the um enema, and I was lying down ready for uh insertion and.

To be honest I'm just a little bit a little bit nervous you any any words of wisdom any any advice a quick little note before we get into this video I want to share with you my goal of this piece now I know there'll be some people out there maybe some of my friends maybe some of my subscribers that are like dude why are you putting that online that is absolutely gross and I remember when my wife came home a couple of years ago she did a detox and part of her process was doing the enema and I was like there is no way in the world.

I would ever do that.

My paradigm, has completely shifted and really the goal of this piece.

Is just to open up the discussion? It's actually okay for us to talk about the enema.

The enema.

Has become a very powerful tool for general health and wellbeing, particularly the detoxification process, in addition to assisting and supporting people with debilitating illnesses, including cancer.

This is a good thing.

It's a good thing to be educated on it's a good thing to be able to talk about, and I hope you enjoy this video all right.

It's nine o'clock in the evening, it's the day before I start my five day fast now.

Originally, I was thinking of doing a water fast, but I went and spoke with an expert on a link to that video below this one earlier this week and he suggested based off my goals and ambitions and, as my subscribers will know, my goals and ambitions are to basically improve or create an optimal platform within myself before I start a big block of training, because later this year I have a goal to win a bike race which is really hard to win.

So I want to improve my immune system.

I want to get fitter, I want to be stronger and this five-day fasting process is going to help me do that and tim has recommended based off my goals, my body type, that I do a juice fast, two small juices a day, but as part of the process, I also need to do enemas, which is basically shoving.

This thing here to chew, filled with liquid directly into your ass.

Now I didn't realize.

Until this morning I was sitting there enjoying my post ride coffee and I looked at the program in detail, and I thought everything was starting tomorrow, but actually I've got to do an enema tonight and the reason why I'm doing an enema tonight and the reason why you do enemas as part of the process according to tim, is apparently when you go on a fasting state.

Your body can look for other bits and pieces internally to utilize to fork and for energy consumption, and it can scrape debris that can have toxicity in it and that can make you feel really crook.

So if you're cleaning both ends you're sort of going to mitigate that from happening, so I've got this thing here.

I'm brewing a pot of tea, so normally I would brew a pot of tea for um oral consumption, but this, I guess uh it's sage.

This is some anal tea right here, um and that's pretty much it um.

These are kind of scaring me at the moment, looking at them, knowing what I'm about to do to my anus, but these are actually for tomorrow.

These are for the juice or part of the juice.

The juices are actually mainly vegetable juice and they're, just going to be small, so I basically have to use the tea more water and I'm going to put it in another teapot here, so my wife usually uses these teapots for drinking.

Hopefully, doesn't she doesn't watch this video because she's probably going to be put off using these teapots in the future? I've got a thermometer, I'm not putting that in my ass I'm using this to measure the temperature, so we want it around 42 degrees.

Before I go in and then insert I'm going to insert with a little bit of moisturizer at the tip, so stay tuned all right, so the tea is now at a perfect temperature and we're ready to go so.

Let's, let's do this so just taking the bathroom here now.

I've just been that's a very bright light.

I just want to turn that one off.

That's a bit better.

So I've been testing this on the wall over here, so there it is up there um, that's where the liquid goes, and it comes out of this little thing here.

This is um a way to tighten it as you can see there now, if I undo that you see it comes out, it's coming out there, that's how that's how it works.

Two little holes there there's a little tap there as well.

So if you turn, but apparently that tap there when you've got this shoved up your ears hard to get there and control it.

So this thing here just gives you a bit more agility.

This thing here, all right.

So now it's on this wall here- and this is my position- it's going to be it's my moisturizer and there's a glass here, because you just got to let a little bit out first apparently so it doesn't bubble up the top here.

Let's fill this thing up, let's make sure this is so I'm going to come out there.

That's a lot of liquid.

Isn't it yeah? It's all going into my ass.

It's quite incredible.

A little bit nervous.

I might give tim a call.

He said to give him a call if I had sort of any sort of questions or queries a little bit nervous just stand up for a second, you know, um how you said I could call you've had any queries.

Yep yep, I just said I just set up the um enema and I was lying down ready for uh insertion and, to be honest, I'm a little bit a little bit nervous.

You any any words of wisdom, any advice, I think the biggest thing about that is hey it's the fear I mean particularly.

I reckon it's more of a bloke thing than a woman thing, though I think it's just the fear of it um.

You know it's different, just stick it in and get on with.

It, basically, basically think of england, all right mate, you got me fired up, appreciate it yeah yeah, it's just one of those things that once you do it, it's not so bad! Well, it's I can feel it going inside my lower body.

My gosh feels like I'm getting a full stomach.

It's very unusual! It's a lot of liquid going in there just turned it down a bit on the tap part.

My tummy, like rumble a little bit tim, said to move.

So I'm just doing a little bit exercises here.

It's 10 to 15 minutes of this whoa, it's a lot of liquid.

Oh, it feels like a little bit like tummy cramps.

What I'm getting! Oh, it's almost all in there all the liquids almost all in there.

It goes.

Oh man, it's like bad tummy, cramps down the bottom, although it's going now, it's just momentarily.

It's moving here, a little bit.

Ah, oh just taking that out of my ass and was probably the worst part, putting it in wasn't too bad but putting it in out and then taking it out.

So I'm pulling my pants up now, so it feels fine now that initial period of all that liquid, going inside, like your lower abdomen or just yeah kind of felt, like tummy cramps, I can feel it there, but it feels fine.

Now I've got 10 minutes of this.

The thing that I was actually worried about was like once it goes in there.

Doesn't it just want to come directly out like isn't it just going to come pouring out, but certainly not the case like I can definitely got control of whatever's in there and right now I don't almost, I think, moving helps.

I almost don't feel like.

Oh no wait a sec, it's almost like lower abdominal pains or something like that.

Just a little bit, not not strong pains, but you can just you can you can feel like? Obviously this little liquid in there, I think it's um 1200 mils, all up all right.

I think that's over 10 minutes.

So I'm gonna go the bathroom and release we're done.

That was a very interesting experience that um there's a lot of liquid in that, and you definitely, I definitely felt it sort of around here, just like mini cramps or a little bit like that.

Getting that thing in was okay.

Taking it out was a bit weird.

What just came out, then I'm not going to even tell you what that looked like, because that's for that's for a different blog or a different youtube channel, but I can tell that that is incredibly cleansing and that was probably the best smelling I've ever done because it smelled like tea and all those bits and pieces I put in it, but at the end of the day, enema, not as bad as it sounds.
