Re: daily enema HELP

I’m doing my u.s conversions here and
10g is about 1 1/2teaspoons and
30 milliliters is 2Tablespoons
Is this suppose to be like a paste?
And I’m wondering about the midwadi since we don’t have that drink here. Is it just a carbonated drink or what am I looking for as a replacement?
