Instructions for a novice enema user (Beginner first time user)

  First thing you should do is set up a comfortable and relaxing area for your enema procedure.
For the best results and comfort, the enema should be taken while lying down.  However people differ, in what may be comfortable for one person is uncomfortable for another.  Lying down for one might be a comfortable position, yet for another person the
 knee chest position may be more comfortable or one of the other positions.

With an enema bag, you can easily use supplements like Extra Virgin Olive Oil , Organic Aloe Vera Juice, MSM, probiotics, Enema Coffee.

 Coffee enema, etc. Many see a lot of benefits in using these and other supplements intermittently during there enema use.

 Herbal Enemas:  can be used a variety of herbs can be used in an enema to help with overall health, allowing the body heal faster.

  Constipation affects us all at one time or another.  It is the infrequent passage or non passage of small hard feces. Generally, constipation is difficult to define clearly because as a symptom it varies with each of us. 


(1) Add solution to enema bag, mixing with warm filtered water to obtain enough solution to fill the entire colon ( See recipes.)
Hang enema bag about  18 in. to 3 ft. above the rectum. Remember the lower you hang the bag, the slower the flow. A good tool for this is an  IV Stand for Enemas

If you need good flow control of the enema solution.  The ramp clamp is a good option it allows you to hang the bag higher to ensure a full flow of water into the colon.  Yet allows you to control the speed of the solution entering the rectum. To make your experience more comfortable.
The Knee-chest position with chest against floor and rectum higher than the head is a good position to start with to receive an enema. After about one third of the bag is used switch to the right side position ,which allows a more thorough filling of the colon.

(2)  Insert nozzle/rectal tube tip into anus, using lubricant ( Super Salve  Surgilube  Vaseline 13oz.   ) as needed. Remember to expel the air in the tubing before inserting.
Now open the clamp and allow the solution into colon slowly, approximately one half to one cup per minute (4 to 8oz.) and take as much as possible of the bag as possible , stop or slow the flow for a few seconds if cramping occurs.  You can refill bag if needed to slightly distend the colon or until you are very full and unable to take any more solution.

You Can Massage the abdomen in counter-clockwise direction this will help the solution higher into the colon.

(3)  When the enema bag is empty or no more fluid can be taken remove nozzle/rectal tube. Lie on each side for 5 minutes, while massaging abdomen.
If you have trouble retaining the solution you might want to try a  retention nozzle. Although some people prefer to use a  retention plug after they received their enema solution and removed the nozzle.

  At this point, either massage your colon from left to right, descending colon to ascending colon, in small circular motions you can also lift your buttocks off the ground with your legs or in a full shoulder stand ( not recommend if you haven’t tried this before) to further move the liquid into your colon.
Try to retain the enema for about 5 to 10 minutes. Evacuate whenever you feel an urgent need to do so.
You can repeat this process until you can accept a full 2 qt. bag of solution or more during one injection.

(4)  Then you can move to the  toilet and release the enema.

Most Important for Beginners!

Enemas work wonder for health. But, the key to starting a successful regiment of enemas, is to cleanse your body of the toxins and waste that have been building up for many years. Along with regular enemas, I do a cleanse every year that "resets" my system. The framework I use is called Total Wellness Cleanse and is well worth every penny.

Isn't the word,  ' ENEMA' remarkable it commands attention. It startles. It shocks. It alerts.

It has a profound physiological effect and psychological impact.

Few people can say the word without some sort of embarrassment.

An Enema is like taking a shower or bath only on the inside.

It was nothing to see an enema bag hanging behind the bathroom door, or behind the closet door in the 50's & 60's and even into the 70's.  It was common place, and even talked about around the neighborhood, between mom's and grandmom's.

WHERE HAS THE BAG GONE ? Many famous people like Princes Diana use colonics, May West , many other actors, and today even some athletes before there performances take enemas .

This is no different than brushing teeth, swallowing pills, washing hair.  YET\ Where Has The Bag Gone ?

Would you feel funny leaving an enema bag hanging on the bathroom door if friends came over ?

Or leaving an Enema Can on the counter top, with the hose over the tub ?

Why do we feel shy about this ?

Many of us realize, that the enema is a great healing tool!
And we know the enema does not really hurt, in fact it can even feel good and can and does help in stress reduction. It's like an internal massage and shower which  helps release natural endorphins etc, it also relaxes the mind & body which we all need today more than ever.

The ones of us who use enemas and colon hydrotherapy know how great we feel afterwards, then why are we so shy about this very healthy procedure ?

I say!!!!! " Ban The Stress / The Poor Health / and Bring Back "THE BATHROOM HOOKS" " Hang Your Bags Proudly" & try to pass on the message about this healing art.  I do even though I get some funny looks at times.
