   This type of enema is held in the rectum and sigmoid colon for a specific period of time so the colon can absorb most of the the solution. This enema is normally held from a few minutes to a couple of hours and then you release.

A retention enema means injecting a solution into the rectum and holding for a specific period of time. An implant or retention enema generally uses only enough liquid to fill the rectum and possibly the sigmoid colon.
Normally these enemas are 8 ozs. to 1qt. of solution or less depending upon the size of the sigmoid colon and rectum.

  Bulb or Ball syringes are normally used for small volume enemas but you can use a clear enema bag they work great to monitor your intake of solution. Fill only the rectum and sigmoid colon with enema solution.

A bulb syringe is filled by squeezing the air out of the bulb, placing the tip of the bulb syringe into the water or solution, and releasing the bulb which creates suction to fill the bulb syringe with the liquid.

Using a bulb syringe fill it with choice of solution. 
Temperature should be approximately 103°Fahrenheit

Next take the bulb syringe with the solution and inject it into the rectum.
Hold the solution in your rectum for 30 minutes to an hour this will allow enough time to absorb most of the nutrients or minerals in the solution.

You can fill an enema bag with warm water if you want to completely fill the entire colon.
Many people unduly worry about possible problems with water retention.  However people with normal kidney function, should not overload the cardiovascular system.
The kidneys actually are very good about getting rid of water, in fact the 'back end' of kidney function is reabsorbing some of the water to maintain fluid balance.

In most individuals, if you block the Reabsorption  with a diuretic like furosemide or bumetanide, the kidneys can remove close to 2 liters of water per hour. The bad news is that blocking the reabsorption also tends to cause losses of your key electrolytes.

The greater danger is probably from electrolyte inbalances. While the Kidneys are pretty good at holding onto electrolytes like Sodium, Potassium and Bicarbonate, they aren't perfect, and as a result, eliminating large amounts of water also tend to eliminate the smaller, but not insignificant amounts of key ions such as sodium and potassium.

Unless you have severe kidney disease ( you would know it because of the pain) you won't have any problems holding an enema

Enemas are a gentle, safe and intelligent way to assist your colon to function properly.
You should Never feel embarrassed or humiliated  about the need to use an Enema.

At first, most people dislike enemas or have a psychological barrier against them.
Ignorance of the purpose and function of an enema, as well as misunderstanding of the proper procedure for taking or giving them sometimes bring about an aversion to the use of enemas.

I have observed, however, that the persons the most opposed to enemas, will soon reverse their prejudices and become avid supporters of them after using them for a while!

In most cases, an enema will relieve stress and give a sense of well being and cleanliness never before experienced.
Feel proud that you give yourself permission to care for your body.
