Can taking baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) enemas on a weekly basis help to maintain a proper alkaline ph balance? I have been reading about the benefits of a slightly alkaline ph in our bodies and have also read about using enemas with about a teaspoon of baking soda per quart.

Baking soda does help with pH as does Ivory soap enemas. Unfortunately most people who take soapsuds enemas always take rinses after. Taking rinses just undoes the good that the higher pH Ivory soapsuds enemas do.

Winafred, doesn't taking an Ivory soap enema without following with a rinse with clear water cause irritation to the colon or possible damage it over time?

Baking soda also is good to add to a warm water enema (tsp per quart) if you're feeling bloated. Include sea salt (tsp per quart) to limit the solution being absorbed during retention. Using a rectal tube gets the solution higher into my colon, so it's much easier to hold for a few minutes. You'll likely experience a lot of "potty noise" on release. That's the baking soda breaking up the "bubbles."
