Enema resources for a better life


Establishing balanced bowel ecology is essential
Replace intestinal flora with acidophilus
Do not use yogurt if you have an allergy to dairy products.

The imbalance of intestinal microorganisms requires replacing the friendly bacteria on a regular basis orally and/or rectally.
Some studies show that taking acidophilus rectally is faster.

Enema Recipe:
4 Tbl. live culture yogurt  or
4 - 5 capsules dry acidophilus  or
1 tsp. powdered acidophilus
2 quarts warm filtered water ( Mix Well )

Temperature 100° to 105°Fahrenheit


Add acidophilus solution to enema bag, mixing with warm filtered water to achieve the amount desired.You should fill the entire colon with solution to ensure that you get complete be distributed throughout the entire large intestine.
Hang enema bag about 18 in. to 3 ft. above rectum. A good tool for this is the IV Stand for Enemas
If you need better flow control of the enema solution.  The ramp clamp is a good option.
The Knee-chest position with chest against floor and rectum higher than head this is a best position to receive the first third of an enema.
Insert nozzle/rectal tube tip into anus, using lubricant (Super Salve Surgilube  Vaseline 13oz.  KY Warming Lubricant 2.5  Astroglide ) as needed. using a good lubricant will help prevent injury to the delicate anal tissues.

Inject solution into rectum slowly, approximately one cup per minute (8oz.) and take as much as possible , you can refill bag if needed. Try to slightly distend the colon or until it becomes very uncomfortable to take any more solution.
  Massaging abdomen in counter-clockwise direction during injection will help the solution higher into the colon.
When the enema bag is empty or no more fluid can be taken remove nozzle/rectal tube. 
For those that have trouble retaining the solution, you can fold a washcloth and press it tightly against the anus.
  Or you might want to try a retention nozzle. Although some people prefer to use a retention plug after they received their enema solution and removed the nozzle.

Lie in each position for several minutes, this will allow the enema solution to do its work.

Then you can move to the toilet and release the enema.

When releasing the enema or just having a normal bowel movement:
You can massage the abdomen in a clockwise direction this will help move the solution back toward the rectum and anus.

Massaging the abdomen while expelling the enema helps move the enema solution and gas and feces toward the rectum and out the anus.

The best position for expelling your enema is squatting over the toilet not sitting on it. The squatting position puts pressure on your abdomen from your thighs.

In many countries, toilets are made so that people squat when they move their bowels. The Welles Step positions your body so that you are squatting when you sit on the toilet. Squatting,  supports the abdominal wall and the bowel as we bear down, brings about an easier bowel evacuation in this way.
People who use the Welles Step tend to have fewer hemorrhoids, hernias, anal fissures, varicose veins and almost never have to use laxatives.
It slides under the toilet when not in use.

It is best if you place a  Welles Step  and then squat down over the toilet to release your enema.

Many people will take acidophilus as a retention enema so they get the most of the beneficial flora.
