How To Take an Enema

You can learn how to easily and effectively use home enema equipment to clear out the entire length of the colon. In the video below, certified colon hydrotherapist Kristina Amelong assists a client in administering an enema to relieve constipation caused by the medication she is taking. Enemas can be an effective tool for detoxifying the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.


How To Take an Enema

Kristina Amelong, CCT, CNC, works with a client to perform a large-volume enema. The client has already taken a small-volume enema that cleaned out the rectal and sigmoid areas of the colon. By learning how to take the large-volume enema, you will be able to deliver enema solution up the descending colon, across the transverse colon, and down the ascending colon -- the full length of the colon.

Useful Tips for the Enema Process:

1. Ensure that all air is out of the enema hose when filling it with your solution.

2. Use Super Salve for lubrication of the enema nozzle.

3. The height of the enema bag should be above the body to avoid backflow.

4. Massage and deep breathing can help during the enema process.

5. If you experience cramping, slow the water flow, rub your stomach, and take a few deep breaths. Always use Himalayan pink salt AND essential oil in your enema solution to reduce cramping and improve the therapeutic effects of the enema.

6. Let in small amounts of water at a time, which will help you to avoid cramping.

7. If you have excessive cramping, stop taking the enema. Wait a day or two, then try again.

8. When the enema bag is empty, clamp the hose.

9. Generally, hold the water in your colon from 1 to 5 minutes.

10. Try to take 2-4 quarts of solution into the colon during each enema. Use a 3- to 4-quart enema bag (preferably silicone) or enema bucket (preferably stainless steel).

11. When you're done taking in the enema solution, sit on the toilet.

Be sure to talk to your doctor when undertaking a home colon cleansing program.

With the use of the downloadable video, Large-Volume Enema, and the video above, you will be able to take enemas in your own home that have the same therapeutic effectiveness as visiting a colon hydrotherapist.
