Six Basic Enema Tips

Enemas are absolutely essential. They are a lifesaver that you can't do without. So you should start learning how to administer them. Here are six basic enema tips to get you started:

1. Get one of those stainless steal bucket enemas with silicone tubing. They are the best type of enemas. There are lots of different brands, and I don't know which one is best. But I use the Medisential brand. Amazon's choice is Aussie Health Co Enema Kit. I wash mine in a plastic tote after each use — I add soap to it and fill it with water in the tub. Be sure to wash the inside of the tubing as well with the soapy water and then rinse it with clear water so no soap residue remains. Over time you will see the tubing become moldy — just replace it with new silicone tubing. Do not buy those enemas that look like hot water bottles. They really suck.

2. It's better to have your own colema board than to visit a colon hydrotherapist. Read the article “An Outbreak of Amebiasis Spread by Colonic Irrigation at a Chiropractic Clinic”. From June 1978 through December 1980, at least 36 cases of amebiasis occurred in persons who had had colonic-irrigation therapy at a chiropractic clinic in western Colorado. Of 10 persons who required colectomy, six died. Tests of the colonic-irrigation machine after routine cleaning showed heavy contamination with fecal coliform bacteria. With your own colema board from Colema Boards of California you won't have this risk as long as no one else uses it. And it is just as effective as visiting a colon hydrotherapist.

3. Always use sanitized and unpolluted water. Never use chlorinated or fluoridated tap water — the chlorine will kill beneficial bacteria. Distilled water is the best. Alternatively, you can use unpolluted well water or unpolluted spring water as long as it is treated with ozonation, or if not, you boil it (then let it cool to body temperature) before using it. I, myself, purify chlorinated and fluoridated tap water with a Megahome water distiller. Remember, amebiasis is a very real and very dangerous concern, so make sure the water is always sanitized.

4. Do not use high pressure. You don't need it at all, and you risk perforating your bowel. So don't buy any of those expensive pressure controlled colon hydrotherapy devices. All you need is gravity fed water pressure, and you don't need to place the bucket very high at all. I just place my bucket on the bathroom counter which is 33.5 inches from the floor where I lie. You don't need it any higher than this.

5. Replace loss electrolytes and beneficial bacteria. Although I have not had any problems, there are reports that enemas can deplete your electrolyte reserves and wash away beneficial bacteria.

6. Use lubricant. I use cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil that I normally use for my meals.
