enema series

What is a therapeutic enema?

A therapeutic enema is a gentle infusion of a therapeutic solution delivered into the colon (large intestine) via the anus to maintain or improve health, including relief from constipation.

What is an enema series?

An enema series consists of three therapeutic enemas, taken one after the other, each with a different solution. As a professional colon hydrotherapist, I recommend the enema series as the most optimal way to cleanse the colon and broadly support health.

Enema benefits: Why do we cleanse the colon?

The Optimal Health Network enema series is a gentle process for therapeutically cleansing the colon. Home enema benefits include relieving occasional or chronic constipation, increasing levels of healthy bacteria, helping to eliminate toxins from the body, supporting liver health, and improving the body's overall detoxification abilities.

Research by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) now shows that a balanced microbiome in the colon is essential for good health. By helping to reduce imbalances in the gut microbiome, the enema series protocol can be beneficial for people with health struggles such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), prostate issues, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, anxiety, celiac disease, dementia, 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.

The Optimal Health Network has developed the 3-step enema series to help you clear out the entire colon and optimize the health of your 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.


Single Enema vs. Enema Series

Clinically, the enema series is more effective than a single enema. The first two enemas are essential to the effectiveness of the final enema, which is a coffee enema. Because the primary action of the coffee enema is to allow the coffee solution to be absorbed into the portal vein**, you don't want to reabsorb any toxic byproducts of the waste sitting in the lower colon. You want to first cleanse that waste with the first two enemas in the series. The enema series was created to optimize the therapeutic benefits of the coffee enema.

** The portal vein or hepatic portal vein is a blood vessel that carries blood from the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen to the liver. About 75% of total liver blood flow is through the portal vein.

Why Choose the Enema Series Supply Kit?

Kristina Amelong, CCT, CNC, explains that 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 before the final enema, a coffee enema, is taken.

goat milk enema soap

Optimal Health Network's Enema Series Protocol

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. Fully submerse a bar of our Goat Milk Enema Soap in a mug or small bowl of warm, filtered water for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on the strength of the therapeutic solution you desire. (A more sensitive person needs less soap.)
  2. Add this soap solution to your enema bag water.
  3. For best results, use a total of 1 to 3 quarts of filtered water warmed to approximately body temperature (98-100°F or 37-38°C) when preparing your solution.
  4. Administer the enema lying on your back. Take in the solution slowly, using a hose clamp to control the flow. Massaging the abdomen during this time assists the body in receiving the water with less cramping.
  5. The first enema doesn't need to be held at all. Once the colon is full, sit on the toilet and empty.

SECOND ENEMA:

colon cleanse essential oil blend

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 should 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. In a mug or small bowl of warm, filtered water, thoroughly mix together 1 teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt per quart of enema water with 5 to 10 drops of OHN Colon Cleanse Essential Oil Blend until the salt is fully dissolved. (For example, if you will be preparing a 3-quart enema, mix 3 teaspoons of salt with 5 to 10 drops of the oil blend.)
  2. After rinsing your enema bag or bucket, fill with 1 to 5 quarts of filtered water warmed to approximately body temperature (98-100°F or 37-38°C).
  3. Add the thoroughly mixed salt/oil solution into the warm water of your enema bag or bucket.
  4. Administer the enema lying on your back. Take in the solution slowly, using a hose clamp to control the flow. Massaging the abdomen during this time assists the body in receiving the water with less cramping.
  5. The second enema also doesn't need to be held at all. Once the colon is full, sit on the toilet and empty.

NOTE: These first two enemas are essential to the effectiveness of the final enema, which is a coffee enema. Because the primary action of the coffee enema is to allow the coffee solution to be absorbed into the portal vein*, you don't want to reabsorb any toxic byproducts of the waste sitting in the lower colon. You want to first cleanse that waste with the first two enemas in the series.

* The portal vein or hepatic portal vein is a blood vessel that carries blood from the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen to the liver. About 75% of total liver blood flow is through the portal vein.

THIRD ENEMA:

coffee enemas

This enema, using organic, air-roasted enema coffee, adds an additional level of therapy to your colon cleanse by assisting your liver and gallbladder.

Supplies:

When using coffee, salt is not needed. The oils disperse well in the coffee alone.

Optional Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. In a French press or on a stovetop, steep 1 to 4 tablespoons of OHN Organic, Air-Roasted Enema Coffee grounds in 1 to 4 cups of filtered water for 12 to 15 minutes. Filter out the coffee grounds.
  2. Add this 1 to 4 cups of brewed coffee to your enema bag or bucket. Dilute with up to 1 additional quart of filtered water per cup of coffee, depending on the desired strength of the therapeutic solution.
  3. If the brewed coffee is too warm, add slightly cooler filtered water to achieve a solution as close to body temperature as possible (98-100°F or 37-38°C).
  4. Administer the enema lying on your back. Take in the solution slowly, using a hose clamp to control the flow. Massaging the abdomen during this time assists the body in receiving the water with less cramping.
  5. Hold the coffee enema solution for 12-15 minutes after you have taken all of the coffee solution into your colon.
  6. Once the time has passed, sit on the toilet and empty.

Summary

The enema series protocol outlined above will not deplete the body of electrolytes, will increase the amount of healthy microorganisms in the colon, will help 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. (Please consult your medical doctor to ensure that regular enemas will be beneficial in your individual circumstances.)

Ten Days to Optimal Health

Eating well goes hand in hand with regular enemas. In order to maintain optimal health, you need to feed your body the nutrients that it requires to thrive. 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: A Guide to Nutritional Therapy and Colon Cleansing. 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.

Client Testimonials

"I wanted to let you know that I absolutely love the Enema Series Supply Kit and all the included products. The series of enemas was very doable. I feel terrific! Thank you."   ~ Karen C.

"I got the Enema Series Supply Kit yesterday and followed the instructions to the letter. It was my first time doing an enema series and I definitely could not hold as much as the suggested amount, but I did feel so much better afterwards. My stressed out liver is in so much less pain. I also got rid of the brain fog that had been plaguing me for so long. I plan on doing the series of enemas again tomorrow. I am hoping for a change in my stamina and I believe, even after only one use, that this is going to help. I felt rather euphoric last night for hours. My pain was less and I had this wonderful feeling of happy endorphins. It was almost like I had taken a drug for pain. So thankful to feel human today. Thanking God for your company and the knowledge you share online."   ~ Leslie P.

"I just recently purchased the products and started doing the enema series. I was diagnosed with lymphoma a year ago and opted out of conventional treatment, following different protocols. All have advised coffee enemas, which I have been doing for some months now. Then I found your information, which really opened my eyes. I did the enema series daily for a week, feeling great after, but then thought I would do it weekly and still do daily coffee enemas. Unfortunately the old constipation returned. So I have returned to a daily enema series, with enema coffee being the last one, and retaining for as long as I can, which is often for an hour or so. Thanks for the great information you have provided. It has really given me the confidence to do this, and actually makes me feel healthier than I have in years!"   ~ Leigh E.

"Wow! This enema series thing really works. I am 71 and I haven't felt this great in years. My prostate is no longer bothering me. I didn't want to go the route of pharmaceuticals, and now my whole body seems to be appreciating what you are having me do. It's a great process. Additionally, I've lost all the weight I set out to lose - all 80 pounds. Whatever you tell me to do from here on out, I will do. I completely trust you."   ~ Sam A.
