Yes, we always got enemas when (1) any of us kids were coming down with a cold, and (2) the usually every second or third days while we were nursing a cold. Mom said this gave our system a better chance to fight the cold and it also prevented constipation during a cold. It seemed to work because we often got over our colds more quickly than our friends did. And, no, not every member of the family got an enema just because one was coming down with a cold.
I think susceptibility to colds/other infections may be heightened by autointoxication resulting from constipation/infrequent bowel function. In our family, suppositories rather than enemas are the tradition, but "attention to bowel emptying" always accompanies a cold (or any illness someone happens to acquire).
