- Action on the human body
What is an enema, and how it acts on the human body
Enema - this is purely a medical procedure that is performed only on prescription to cleanse the colon with constipation before surgery or diagnostic investigations. There are also drugs enemas, when introduced into the rectum a small amount of the drug or active topically (to the mucosa of large intestine), or on the whole body after absorption.
If you regularly use a cleansing enema to cleanse the body
Cleansing the body - comprehensive restoration
or weight loss, you can achieve the opposite effect: a sharp metabolic disorders. And, as is known, on the rate of metabolism in the body it depends on whether the time to be deposited in the body fat reserves or he goes to "furnace" for energy.
Why violated the metabolic processes with frequent uncontrolled (ie enema and used for weight loss) using enemas? With enema stool removed from lower parts of colon (no more than 40 cm, while, as the entire large intestine has a length of 2 m), and together with them and useful microorganisms, which is an important component of digestion. It is useful microflora (bifidobacteria, lactobacilli, some types of E. coli and other bacteria) allows food completely digested in the body. And when the useful microflora begins to shrink, it takes the place pathogenic microflora - there are signs of dysbiosis
Signs of dysbiosis - depend on the localization process
(flatulence, pain, alternating diarrhea and constipation).
With these beneficial bacteria in the body produces some vitamins are almost never comes from food, but without which may be proper metabolism (K, D, some B vitamins). Together with water from bowel useful salts are removed, without which the body can not exist, for example, salts of potassium and magnesium, maintaining contractility of the heart muscle.
Is it possible to lose weight with the help of daily enemas? Of course you can, but not for long. The fact that the first body is just not enough nutrients (because they are removed from the enema) and instead of remote carbohydrates for energy production are starting to use fat reserves (people lose weight), even more he loses weight due to the fact that loses fluid (particularly, if you use saline enemas are guaranteed to make water). But do not rejoice body quickly adapts to new conditions and begins just spend less energy is manifested in the form of lethargy, weakness, and complete lack of effort. Adapt to new conditions, metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
starts doing intensive fat reserves for "rainy day".
Result enema: first weight loss and then persistent weight gain, impaired metabolism
and goiter. To restore normal intestinal microflora is not so simple: it will have to spend a lot of time, effort, money and nerves.
Another dangerous enemas that contain, for example, coffee or caffeine (such recipe online lot) - Caffeine constricts blood vessels, raises blood pressure, heartbeat causes and so on. All of this is not always safe, even for healthy people, but if a person is obese, much more.
But there are techniques that allow you to clean the intestines, and then restore the normal intestinal flora. As you probably already guessed, these techniques are carried out medical and health facilities only with the help of special equipment, the field prior examination of the patient, taking into account all the indications and contraindications for these procedures. A technique called bowel cleansing using water hydrotherapy treatments.
During one procedure through the colon hydrotherapy goes up to 40 liters of water, which cleanses the entire colon of mucus, feces and stones located on the walls of the intestine and sometimes parasites (worms). Quiet filling and emptying the colon improves motor activity, increases muscle tone.
The procedure for colon hydrotherapy is conducted by a special device - gidrokolonoskopa, used to wash mineral water, herbal infusions, drugs. After a course of treatment to be appointed restorative treatment in the form of probiotics and prebiotics - medicines, promoting the restoration of normal intestinal microflora.
Hydrotherapy techniques have clear indications and contraindications. The duration of the treatment, the duration of certain procedures, the use of certain medications are also clearly defined. Therefore, hydrotherapy, as well as any rational treatment benefit: cleanses the intestines, a feeling of cheerfulness, accelerated metabolism and the person loses weight.

The central regulation of appetite is carried out by the brain. Centers of hunger, satiety and thirst are located in the hypothalamus - an area of the brain that is responsible for the regulation of the autonomic nervous system and the endocrine glands.
Communication between these two systems is carried out by means of nerve impulses transmitted from the periphery to the center through special substances (mediators). Mediators may be different (serotonin, noradrenalin etc.), and each of them transmitted by "their" nerve endings (receptors).
What lindaksa and mechanism of action
Lindaksa (sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate) - a centrally acting drug that can inhibit appetite. Its mechanism of action is that it prevents the reuptake of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and some others.

The desired (suppresses hunger) lindaksy effects associated with serotonin reuptake. With obesity in violation of gustatory habits lindaksa selectively inhibits the propensity to consume carbohydrate and increasing their uptake by the tissues, as well as in the circumstances of carbohydrates for the required energy is not enough, then "the furnace" are fats from "stocks", is their intense decay . Furthermore, lindaksa increases the formation of heat in the body, which also contributes to fat burning. Together with fats reduces the number of "harmful" cholesterol and increases the number of "useful" to the body of cholesterol, which is actively involved in metabolism.
