Enema supply shops abound but why?
Go to a construction / plumbing supply store and get about 4 foot of clear tubing with a diameter the size of your index finger and follow the picture here -------
Be sure to wash the tube inside and out with soap and water.
Getting the 4 pieces on the bowel end of the tube to fold inside nicely can take a little time. Try using the end of a retractable ball point pen like the one in the picture and stick it into the tube to help work the ends inside.
You may want a larger bottle (the one shown here is a 2 liter). I have heard that people can take in a gallon of water at one time, though I have never done this before. Two liters is about as much as I can do after 6 months of practice. The tape on the bottle will help you get a better grip on the bottle when your hand is oily.
Make the hole in the bottle cap slightly smaller in diameter than the tubing so that it grips onto the tube. The hole in the plastic cap should not be perfectly round. If it is perfectly round, then no air will be able to enter the bottle and no water will flow out of the bottle!
You will also need a thermometer, some vegetable oil, (Olive oil, Grageseed oil, Sunflower oil, etc.) and some vinegar (optional) or lemon juice (optional).
You will need a small/tiny bowl to put 1 or 2 tablespoons of oil into. I use a small oriental tea cup which seems to work perfectly for this.
I also like to use Lavender essential oil. The latin root of Lavender is "lavare," meaning "to wash."
First, lay an old towel on the bathroom floor because some water might drip out of you on your way from the shower to the toilet depending on how much bowel control you have - at first you probably won't have much control...
Take the bottle, hose, thermometer, oil, vinegar, and small tea cup into the shower. You are now ready to begin:
Fill the bottle with water. Use a thermometer to get the temperature between 85 and 90 degrees F. Temperatures outside that range are not comfortable inside your body and you won't be able to hold the water inside of you.
Add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar to the top of the bottle (this step is optional). Add 2 or 3 drops of essential oil if desired (this step is optional). Screw the cap on and shake.
Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of oil to the small tea cup and oil the hose and yourself up.
Lie on your LEFT SIDE, not your right, always start an enema on your LEFT SIDE. There is a good reason for this. I had to look at an anatomical diagram of the intestines to understand why you need to start an enema on your left side.
The colo-rectal tube does not go straight up from your anus. It makes a 90° turn to the left and then goes up the left side of the body, then it crosses over and goes down the right side of the body. If you started an enema on your right side, the water could not go beyond the first few inches. Imagine placing a horseshoe against your stomach with the open end facing down. Now imagine a tube running from your anus to the LEFT end of the horseshoe. That's about how your colo-rectal tube is made. That is why you MUST start an enema on your left side.
|ALWAYS START AN ENEMA LAYING ON YOUR LEFT SIDE|
While laying on your left side, gently insert the hose into your anus about one or two inches.
Lift the bottle and tip it so the water can gravity drain into you. You can control the speed that the water goes in by changing the height of the bottle. If no water goes in perhaps the hose is not in far enough or perhaps the hose is in too far therefore blocking the opening. Adjust as necessary. (Make sure the hole in the cap is not perfectly round or no air can get into the bottle...)
At first just try letting some water go inside until it starts to feel a little strange/uncomfortable. Go at your own pace.
I started off by getting a half a liter or less at a time inside. It took me about 4 weeks before I could actually pour the entire contents of a 2 liter bottle into myself at one time. And even after 4 weeks of trying, it was still a rare occasion to get that much to go in at once. After weeks of trying I could still only hold the water inside for a couple of minutes at most... some folks hold it in for 15 minutes at a time before releasing it into the toilet. I have read about people getting an entire gallon inside at one time, running around the block for 10 minutes with the water inside and then sitting on the toilet and letting it go...
Here is an excerpt taken from a newsgroup:
Weeks or months after you begin, as the water flows in, gently BUT FIRMLY, massage your abdomen where the colon is. This does two things. It helps to break up and release the M.E.S.S. as the water flows in. It also releases trapped air as the water flows in. As the water flows in, air is displaced. Continue to massage your abdomen while on your back. After more water has gone in, turn onto your right side. Continue to massage your abdomen while on your right side. After all of the water has gone in, massage your abdomen while turning from your right side, to your back, to your left side. Remember, the water is washing the inside of a dirty tube. You should try to let the water stay in you for 10 to 15 minutes. You may not be able to hold the water in that long. Often the urge to BM becomes urgent after the water has gone in. When you stand up to BM, shake your stomach from side to side, back and forth, and round and round. You will hear the water sloshing inside you. Imagine a washing machine because that is what is happening inside. The more you can shake and slosh the water, the more cleaning you get, and the more M.E.S.S. you will break loose. Do not get too vigorous with the shaking if you are not in shape for it. I would not want you to throw your back out of kilter.
You need a cleaning agent, (water and the lemon juice or vinegar) and you need contact time. The longer the water is in contact with the M.E.S.S., the softer and easier to remove it gets.
You need mechanical action. Mechanical action is simply scrubbing. When you move and slosh the water, it scrubs. It is the same as a washing machine agitator. When you wash clothes you have a pre-soak cycle, but the sloshing is where the cleaning takes place. Lie there and pre-soak, but slosh to get the M.E.S.S. out.
You also need to slosh while lying down. Remember the colon is shaped like a horseshoe and you must make sure the water gets to the right side, not just the left side. While lying on your back, raise your hips and slosh. That will help the water get evenly distributed throughout the colon.

Enema and Aromatherapy|
Aromatherapy is a holistic, natural way of healing many disorders. Essential oils are the most important part of aromatherapy; in enemas too, essential oils play an important part in healing the colon.
Nowadays, essential oils are often used in enemas due to their antibacterial, antiviral and ant fungal properties. These oils are able to provide excellent results in cleaning the human body from fecal matters and healing the colon.
However, not every oil is suitable for every ailment and not every oil suits every person. So, whenever you use these oils, start with a very little amount and with prior consultation. Let us examine some popular oils recommended for colon health:
Lavender essential oil and Colon Cleansing
Lavender oil is considered the safest oil of all essential oils and is commonly used for several disorders. This oil works well after taking enemas because of its wound healing qualities. It works wonders for hemorrhoids, anal fissures, nausea and chronic headaches. This oil also helps fight out stress and builds more confidence while taking enemas. Take some diluted lavender oil and gently rub on your belly; it will not only make you calm but also take out all the fear (if any) associated with taking enemas.
Fennel, Tarragon, Ginger, Lemon, and Rosemary
These oils when used together give an excellent healing effect to the colon area. However, these essential oils have many specific qualities but show the best result when used together. Mix not more than 16 drops of these oils with grape seed oil and then implant into the colon area with your enema. All of these oils are very effective in clearing up toxins and destroying unhealthy bacteria, yeast and parasites in the colon.
Although, you can use these oils individually (4-6 drops) but they do have a synergistic effect when used together.

Peppermint Essential Oil|
This essential oil has many healing properties and works great with colon cleansing. Scientists have also provided facts about its effectiveness. It is often recommended that with your first enema, peppermint oil instead of soap may be used.
Add this essential oil mixture to the water during a colon cleansing routine. This mixture provides a smooth session and heals the colon area.
This blend came into existence during the 14th century plague in England. From that period, this blend is used to fight and control a lot of diseases. It has therapeutic properties and is very effective against airborne bacteria. This essential oil blend should be used on the hand and around the neck, before and after taking an enema.
Myrtle and Myrrh Essential Oils
These essential oils work well with enemas. In 2-4 quarts of filtered water, mix a teaspoon of sea salt and add 4 drops of myrtle and/or myrrh oil. With this enema mixture, one can take the enema up to 3 times, but it depends on person to person; if one feels two is enough, don't do any more.
Myrtle helps to relieve and prevent inflammation in the colon and Myrrh is beneficial for the liver and lymph.
Most sources suggest that there are on average between 10 pounds and 70 pounds of extra crap that each of us carry around with us each day!
