Now you're ready to administer or receive your enema.

Temperature 100° to 105°Fahrenheit


Add solution to enema bag, mixing with warm filtered water to achieve the required amount of solution.
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 good flow control for the enema solution.  A 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 an enema.
Insert nozzle/rectal tube tip into anus, using a good lubricant (Liquid Silk Lube  Sliquid Organics H2O  Vaseline 13oz.   Astroglide   KY Warming Liquid Lubricant) 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 the injection will distribute the solution throughout the colon.
Massage Abdomen When Receiving an Enema

When the enema bag is empty or no more fluid can be taken remove nozzle/rectal tube
For those that have trouble retaining the nozzle and or the solution.
  You might want to try a retention nozzle  during the administration of the enema.

 Some people use a retention plug after they received their enema solution and removed the nozzle to retain their enema for the desired amount of time. You can also fold a washcloth and press it tightly against the anus.

Retain the solution for several minutes as, this will allow the enema to do its job.

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

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

Massaging the abdomen while expelling the enema helps move the enema solution , 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.

Welles Step  to help squat over the toilet when expelling

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

Liquid Castile Soap can be used to enhance the cleansing of the colon.
  The soapy solution causes an irritation to the intestinal lining thereby causing stronger reactive contractions in the colon.

  After using a liquid soap solution, you should always follow up with a couple of simple water enemas to remove the soap residue on the colon walls to prevent further irritation.

 You can purchase Castile soap in 0.3 oz. (9ml) packets. This packet combined with 2 quarts (1.7 liters) of water to make a good enema solution. Bottles of Castile soap solution, many of which have herbal additives are available in most health food stores.
!! Never use dishwashing liquids or detergents for your enemas they can harm the delicate intestinal lining!!
Remember to keep the enema temperature at about 103°Fahrenheit (about 39 degree Celsius) give or take 1 or 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius).
Then add this mixture to your enema bag, make sure that the solution has not cooled below 103°Fahrenheit.
Now you're ready to administer or receive the enema.

 These soapy enemas are definitely harder to take and hold than a plain warm water enema.
No matter what type of enema that you take you should try to hold it for a few minutes so it has a chance to do its job ( 5 to 10 minutes should be sufficient )
