Many people have a resistance towards accepting enemas and we hope this
information will help you to overcome that. Your life will be better for
this knowledge. Enema bags can be purchase in our clinic.
How to take an enema
You will find your enema a simple and pleasant if you organize yourself
well, set aside a relaxed half hour and provide yourself with something
to do when you are retaining the enema (such as radio, books, etc.)
You will require the following:
1. A gravity flow enema bucket or bag
2. One or two liters of enema fluid (various types listed below)
When you have everything ready to start, lie down on your back, or on
your right side, and press the lubricated tip of the enema tube into the
rectum until it is firmly in place, using a little soap, vaseline or oil
for lubrication. Release the tube lock and let the liquid begin to flow
into the rectum. It is best to have the liquid at room temperature, as
hot water will uncomfortable and cold water is harder to retain. You can
control the flow of the liquid with the tube lock if it begins to get
If the water hits a block of impacted faeces, you can stop the flow,
massage the area, turn on go up into the shoulder stand until you feel
ready to inject more. Ideally, you should be able to inject and retain
for at least ten minutes, an entire quart of enema fluid. Sometimes the
urge to release cannot be ignored and it is wise to let it go and begin
all over again. As the bowel condition improves, it will be easier and
easier to accept and retain all the liquid with a minimum of discomfort.
As you want the liquid to flow up the descending colon, across the
transverse, and down the ascending colon, it is helpful to change
positions and massage the area. Often when a strong urge to release
comes, it usually lasts only for a minute or so, and if you breathe
quickly, and/or turn your feet in circles at the ankle in both
directions you can ride the storm and will find that the crisis passed.
Each time you do an enema, try to hold it longer than the time before.
Stay lying on the right side or in the inverted posture. It is clearly
necessary to recognize that once people experience the release of
symptoms by the use of enemas, they may be tempted to overuse them.
Overuse of enemas can result in weakening of bowel tone, so it is
important to realize when enemas should and should not be used.
The most important use of enemas is the service they add to the body
purification program. The enema is the most effective in carrying away
toxins out of the body. It is also a necessary part of any program
dedicated to deep bowel cleansing. If the need for enemas is too often,
the person should seek professional guidance.
PLAIN WATER ENEMAS
A warm water enema will effectively cleanse the rectum and release
toxins which may be causing headaches and flatulence.
Make a strong infusion of herbal teas or a decoction of roots and barks,
strain and cool. Use two tablespoons of herb per pint of water. This may
be made up in advance, but used preferably within 24 hours.
Calming, soothing, relaxing. Effectively brings down fevers.
Excellent for recuperative periods after illness or a healing crisis.
Make a decoction of yellow dock and burdock roots, then add red clover
and red raspberry infusions. It stimulates the liver to dump bile.
Mucilagenous, soothing, softening and nourishing enema. Excellent to
give if the patient is having trouble eating or retaining food, as the
bowel absorbs the nutrient.
Profoundly purifying, an excellent aid in the treatment of worms.
Liquidize four cloves in 1 pint warm water and strain.
Witch hazel, bayberry, or white oak bark, used to help stop diarrhea and
Relieves inflammation, pain and bleeding ( more effective if you add two
teaspoons of liquid chlorophyll). Also aids healing process.
Inject pure chlorophyll juice of wheatgrass which restores positivity to
bowel and blood stream. Excellent for chronic diseases. Can be mixed 1:1
with rejuvelac (water from soaking wheat). Use plain water enema first.
The coffee enema is widely publicized these days as a part of cancer
therapy and chronic care naturopathy. It is excellent to relieve healing
crisis pain and discomfort, to stimulate the liver to dump bile by
absorption of the coffee into the haemorrhoidal veins and the portal
vein, and to encourage deep cleansing of the colon by stimulating
The coffee enema is prepared by putting three tablespoons of drip ground
coffee into one quart of distilled water which has just been brought to
the boil. Continue on the boil for three minutes and then simmer on very
low heat for 20 minutes. Cool. Strain and inject while at body
temperature. Retain 10-15 minutes. This can be done every morning when
on a detoxification program or fast, and every hour during an acute
healing crisis. The bowels continue to operate independently even when
taking the coffee enema regularly and start functioning easily on their
own after the coffee enema is discontinued. The coffee enema is
recommended after a lymph massage to cleanse the colon of the lymph
which has drained into the bowel, but not before sleep as it is too
stimulating. A herbal substitute for the coffee enema is: red clover,
yellow dock root, burdock and red raspberry.
The use of spirulina plankton enemas together with fasting and
purification programs is an excellent way to cleanse the colon and
purify the blood stream as quickly as possible. Spirulina has the unique
advantage of supplying strength and power through the absorption of the
plankton into the bowel wall, as well as cleansing at the same time by
softening the impacted fecal matter and stimulating peristalsis. Direct
nutrition absorbed by the colon provides proteins and essential amino
acids, laying a balanced foundation for easy purification, since hunger
and weakness are prevented by the spirulina intake. The spirulina enema
may be made as follows: Heat one blender full of distilled water to body
temperature. Mix two teaspoons spirulina powder with half a cup of cold
water till you make a smooth paste. Add two teaspoons glycerine
(obtainable from the chemists) and stir together. Add this loose paste
to a blender half full of the warm distilled water, and mix at slow
speed. You can also use a whisk. Add the remaining distilled water
slowly, to fill the blender. Fill the enema bag right away and use
quickly. This method will wash out the lower and upper bowel and
encourage a complete peristaltic downward action. The plankton is also
absorbed in to the bowel wall, helping to soften, loosen and dilute the
bowel contents. Inject the mixture a little at a time while lying on the
right side. Move back and forth from left to right side, and massage the
bowel area. If you feel that retention is impossible, then eject, and
start the process over again. With practice the bowel becomes accustomed
and eventually you will be able to retain a full enema of two quarts for
five to ten minutes, while massaging the abdomen. Use of the shoulder
stand will help the spirulina to reach the whole of the intestinal
tract. The glycerine helps to emulsify the mixture, soften the impacted
faeces and lubricate the walls of the colon. Take the enema the first
night of and fast and for the next two nights. While you continue the
fast, take one every other day and after the fast take once a month on a
regular basis for effective bowel maintenance. Spirulina powder is
better than grinding up tablets, as it is without additives.
