|A high enema series is designed to clean the entire large intestine from the rectum to the cecum. It does this by instilling and releasing several large volume enemas in succession. What this means is that you inject as much liquid into the colon until it becomes slightly distended, then move to the toilet and release.|
|Accomplishing a High Enema Series at Home
Beginners or people who have not been able to take larger amounts of water/solution in enemas may find the techniques discussed here to be helpful. At the outset, it needs to be said that each individual should listen to their own body, listen to their own common sense, be in touch with themselves, as well as doing whatever appropriate research they can, and listening to, talking with or reading from experts. This is because there is no single, exact method to accomplish good enema cleansing of this vital organ: the colon one of the most vital organs in the body, and certainly one of the largest. In fact, there are many ways to accomplish good colon care. I am going to present here a technique that has worked well for me and others whom I know or have heard from over the years. This is a simple, staged way to accomplish a high enema or cleansing of the entire colon.
You will need, at a minimum: a small bulb-type enema syringe or, a clear enema bag and a barium enema nozzle, tubing clamp and lubricant.
There are many types of enemas and many ways of doing them Dont take this as the one and only way to take an enema. This is a description of a series of enemas leading to high a enema, done at home in quiet surroundings, starting with three enemas: first, a very small enema followed by, second, a 1000cc to 1500cc enema and third, a larger volume high enema of 2500cc or more. One or more additional high-volume enemas can usually be taken in succession, done in a gentle manner and not forced or painful.
This is not the only way to take enemas. it is a technique for a relaxing yet thorough colon cleansing. It is recommended that the procedures discussed here be undertaken only when you have time and quiet, especially time to relax and make the colon cleansing experience a positive, renewing experience.
|High Enema Series Procedure
First Enema : Cleaning out the Rectum and Sigmoid colon
The first enema is a simple enema to clear out the lower rectum and
sigmoid colon. This can be taken with a bulb type enema syringe or you can use your
enema bag and only inject 250 cc to 500cc of . You take this small enema in a comfortable
area, inject the solution in slowly. Try to relax for a few minutes five minutes is fine,
then expel the contents, this will clean out lower sigmoid rectal area.

Second Enema : A 1000cc to 1500cc enema
This enema is designed to clean the lower colon and up into the descending and transverse colon of major fecal matter prior to the high enema. This enema is often used as a soapy enema, using mild castile soap in low concentration (1 teaspoon) with about per 1000cc in the enema bag filled and mixed.
Take a 1500cc enema in a comfortable area from your 2500cc (approx. 3 quart) clear enema bag. It comes with a barium nozzle They use them for administering "Barium" enemas during x-ray examinations of the colon. Barium solution is a fairly thick liquid and this nozzle handles it with no problem at all ! The base of each Nozzle has a standard 5/16" Barb to fit standard hospital-type 5/16" I.D. tubing it has a 3/4 in. bulb on the end which is easier to retain in the rectum.
This enema contains a mild soapy solution. Take the first third of
the enema on the left side (Simms position) lying comfortably in a warm area, then switch
to on the on- back position with your bottom elevated by pillows, It is helpful to breathe
slowly and deeply through your mouth to help relax and minimize any discomfort, this will
enable you to take the high enema as comfortable as possible. If you experience any
cramping, slow or stop the flow of the solution momentarily to make you more
comfortable. Now move to the toilet and release.
Upon taking this enema and expelling, fecal material in the descending colon and transverse colon is loosened up and most of the larger matter should be discharged. However, with some of the soapy residue from the enema remaining in the colon, when the high enema is next taken the mild soapy residue is pushed up into the higher reaches of the colon, causing a loosening of retained fecal matter very high in the colon, all the way into the cecum.

Third Enema: 2500cc to as much as you can hold comfortably !
A relaxed stretched out position is ideal in that you can relax during the enema and also change positions during the procedure.
Use a 2500cc clear enema bag (approx. 3 quart) with a barium enema nozzle for easier retention of the nozzle.
Other types of bags and nozzles can be used. Fill the bag with warm water and a mild soap solution, although it is not necessary to use a soap solution if a smaller soapy enema has already been taken as previously described.
The colon is a huge organ which, when full of a high enema, occupies
the entire abdomen from the ribcage to the genitals. During administration, you will lie
on your left side then roll onto your back to take the last of the enema solution. Rolling
onto your back allows the liquid to flow into the rest of the colon easily.
The male is shown here on the right resting for a few minutes after taking in a 2500cc enema, with the abdomen expanded. The healthy adult colon can hold a significant volume enema3 quarts or morewhen the lower colon has been cleansed by the smaller enemas previously described. However, we advocate going slow, being safe, and never taking more enema solution if there is sharp pain. Moreover, taking colon cleansing a high enema does require practice and some getting used to, like many other activities. In addition, as mentioned previously relaxation is essential, meaning taking enemas in a relaxed, quiet environment.
High Enema Procedure
Relax in the classic Leftside position. In this position he can stretch out comfortably on the bed, extend his left leg fully and bring up his right knee so that he is at least partially on his side This is a most common position to give and receive enemas, at least in the initial stages of an enema. It is also a common position for enema nozzle insertion. Once you are comfortable and are taking in the enema, many people actually find it relaxing to take the initial stage of a high enema by lying on their stomach or partially so. Comfort during enemas is really up to the individual, most people prefer to lie down and rest quietly during an enema, just extending the right knee a bit. As you become full from the enema and wish to make certain that the enema is reaching the high portion of the colon, then turn on your back. This on the back, legs up position can be comfortable and can also permit higher volumes of enema solution to reach the upper colon. Many people will find it also useful to add a pillow under their bottom, both to provide an easy balance when pulling their legs back and up, and to provide a way to help gravity by making the body tilt back so to speak.
A high enema is often given for relieving constipation, or
before a proctoscopic
examination or various other procedures.
