What is an enema?

Enema definition: an enema is a gentle infusion of therapeutic solutions delivered into the colon to improve health.

Like the inside of your mouth, your colon contains living organisms and soft tissue. Your mouth stays healthier with regular cleaning. The same is true of your colon. Regular colon cleansing is as beneficial to your health as regular teeth brushing.

Why do we clean out the colon?

The Optimal Health Network enema series is a gentle process for therapeutically cleansing the colon. Home enema benefits include increasing healthy levels of bacteria, reducing unhealthy levels of bacteria, increasing liver health, and improving the body's overall detoxification efforts.

Science from the National Institute of Health now shows that the microbiome in the colon is essential for good health. The enema series protocol can be beneficial for people with diseases such as IBS, prostate issues, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, anxiety, celiac, dementia, Alzheimer's, and heart disease. Scientific research now confirms the connection between an unhealthy microbiome and inflammation, which is the central cause of most pain, mental health imbalances, and disease.

Optimal Health Network developed the 3-step enema series to clear out the entire colon and optimize the health of the microbiome, as well as feed the cells of the colon wall, all while supporting the body's overall detoxification pathways.

Wondering how to do an enema at home? On this page I present the protocol that I use in my clinic to clear out the entire colon with an enema series.

Learn better by watching? Below are a couple of enema videos explaining the process and our colon cleanse series. If you would rather read, you can view our enema administration steps below the video section.


How to Take an Enema

This video details how a new enema user can easily and effectively use an enema bag to clear out the entire length of the colon. Kristina and a female model demonstrate how to set up and use an enema bag, how to prepare the enema solution, how to use an enema tubing clamp, how to lubricate and insert the enema nozzle, and how to easily take two quarts of enema solution to fully clear out the entire colon.

Optimal Health Network's Enema Series Protocol

Required supplies and ingredients for all enemas in the series:

FIRST ENEMA

Supplies:

Our made-for enema goat milk soaps contain butyric acid, the main food source of the cells in the lining of the colon, which helps the cells to function properly and maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining. Our made-for-enema soap also stimulates the colon without irritating it, thereby increasing the healing properties and effectiveness of the colon-cleansing therapy.

Instructions:

  1. Use 1-4 quarts of filtered water and made-for-enema goat milk soap.
  2. Soak soap in the water for 20-60 seconds. The amount of water and soap one uses varies between people: a more sensitive person needs less soap, and your colon will let you know how much enema solution to take in. During this enema, start out on your left side.
  3. After the first ½ to 1 quart of filtered water has been delivered into the colon, turn onto your back. Massaging the abdomen during this time assists the body in receiving the water with less cramping.
  4. The first enema doesn't need to be held at all; once the colon is full, sit on the toilet and empty.

SECOND ENEMA

enema videos series page: Celtic Sea Salt

Supplies:

This enema is used to clear out the second half of the colon, balance electrolytes, optimize for healthy bacteria, and strengthen overall immunity. You ought to be able to take at least 2 quarts of water into your body during this colon cleanse. Take your time with this enema.

Instructions:

  1. Add 2-4 quarts of water to enema bucket or bag.
  2. Add one teaspoon of Celtic sea salt and 2-4 drops of OHN Colon Cleanse Essential Oil Blend to each quart of filtered water.
  3. When taking the enema, allow 10-15 minutes to take the entire volume of enema solution.
  4. Sit on the toilet and empty.

THIRD ENEMA

This enema adds an additional level of therapy to your colon cleanse by assisting your liver and gallbladder.

Supplies:

Optional:

Instructions:

  1. Use one quart of filtered water with one tablespoon to one cup of brewed, organic, made-for-enema coffee for this colon cleansing solution. This enema adds an additional level of therapy to your colon cleanse by assisting your liver and gallbladder.
  2. Hold the coffee enema solution for 12-15 minutes, after you have taken all of the coffee solution into your colon.
  3. Once the time has passed, sit on the toilet and empty.

Single Enema vs. Enema Series

Clinically, the enema series is more effective than a single enema. The first two enemas in the series prepare the colon by emptying out toxic byproducts. The purpose of the coffee enema is to absorb the coffee into the portal vein*, and we recommend that you don't also absorb the very toxic byproducts that you are trying to get out of the body. The enema series was created to optimize the therapeutic benefits of the coffee enema.

* The hepatic portal vein is a blood vessel that conducts blood from the gastrointestinal tract and spleen to the liver. The liver receives about 75% of its blood through the hepatic portal vein.

Enema Implant

bifidonate

Supplies:

To support a healthy colonic mucosa, implant Breathe Ease Essential Oil Blend, Respiratory Ease Essential Oil Blend, or Mucoid Plaque Essential Oil Blend with one cup of aloe vera juice after your enema series. To learn more about his protocol, visit our mucoid plaque page.

Instructions:

  1. Add one 1 teaspoon of Bifidonate to one cup of aloe vera juice to assist the body in repopulating the healthy colonic flora.
  2. Implant solution into the colon after you have fully cleansed your colon.
  3. Hold as long as you are able. You may even be able to go about your day and not evacuate the solution until your next bowel movement.

You may also wish to try frankincense essential oil in your implant. The scientific literature on cancer and frankincense is incredibly hopeful. International laboratory research has demonstrated frankincense essential oil's ability to shut down cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Couple this with the ample scientific evidence that exists that 1) the colon is an effective delivery system for therapeutic agents and 2) among cancers affecting both men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, then I suggest we have a powerful preventive essential oil to use in the enema implant.

  1. Add 2-4 drops of the essential oil to one cup of aloe vera juice.
  2. Implant solution into the colon after you have fully cleansed your colon.
  3. Hold as long as you are able. You may even be able to go about your day and not evacuate the solution until your next bowel movement.

Summary

The enema series protocol listed above will not deplete the body of electrolytes, will increase the amount of healthy microorganisms in the colon, will improve overall immunity, will support the liver, and will not irritate sensitive colonic tissues. In this way, regular enemas are very healthy for most people.

Ten Days to Optimal Health

Eating well goes hand in hand with regular enemas. In order to maintain your excellent health, you need to feed your body the nutrients that it requires to nourish your cells, glands, organs, muscles, bones, etc. There is no way around this. Colon cleansing, without the proper diet to support your individual biochemistry, will not allow you optimal health over time.

I recommend that you work through my book, Ten Days to Optimal Health. This 35-day nutritional and cleansing program is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach using food and colon cleansing to bring your body towards a state of optimal health. I am confident that by following the entire 35 days of the health program, as laid out in the book, your health will improve.

Cleaning Your Enema Equipment

In this video blog post from Kristina, learn how to clean your enema equipment.

Cleaning out the enema bag, enema hose, and enema nozzle is crucial to safe colon cleansing. Always use a nontoxic soap like Thieves Cleaner or Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap. Also, hang the bag and hose upside-down to dry. Clean the nozzle out well with soap and soak in Grapefruit Seed Extract, making sure there's no fecal matter left on it. Using a pipe cleaner to remove any small bits of fecal matter works well.
