Enema Kit Instructions
Freshen your Insides & Reduce Toxic Build-Up
The colon carries out 2 vital functions that are so important to a healthy digestive system:
- It collects and removes waste and toxins from the body, and
- It absorbs water and nutrients from our food before releasing it into the bloodstream.
Enemas are a great way to flush out waste deposits that may have accumulated over the years.
This not only takes a burden off your colon, it also helps to reduce the strain placed on the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and even your skin as they all work to expel toxins.
An accumulation of waste and toxins can interfere with the body's metabolism, so you may even experience higher energy levels and increased weight loss as a result. If you've been feeling heavy or sluggish, it could be time for an internal flush.
We make it easy with our superior home enema kit.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE USING YOUR KIT FOR THE FIRST TIME, WASH IT 2-3 TIMES WITH A NATURAL SOAP SUCH AS DR BRONNER'S CASTILE SOAP OR YOUNG LIVING THIEVES AND WARM WATER. YOUR KIT IS PRIVATE, SO DO NOT SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.
HOW TO USE
The best time to do an enema is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (ideally after a bowel movement). Try to do it on a day when you won't be interrupted.
Fill the durable silicone enema bag with 1-2 litres of lukewarm solution (recipes below) being careful not to overfill. Use only filtered water in your solutions and ensure it is a comfortable temperature (between 36-38C or 98-102F).
Use the easy-to-hang hook to set it no more than 3 feet above where you will be doing the enema. The flow control clamp helps to ensure a consistent gentle stream. Make sure there is no air in the tubing by allowing a little of the solution to release into the sink, then clamp the tube to stop the flow.
Lie on your left side with left leg straight and your right leg bent forward toward the chest. Alternatively, it may be easier to sit in a squatting position as if having a bowel movement. Whichever is more comfortable for you is the right option.
Lubricate the tip with oils such as olive, coconut, almond, grapeseed. Take a few deep breaths to help relax the muscles. With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into your anus with the tip pointing toward navel (approx. 3 inches). Do not force it as it could cause injury.
Unclamp the tube to the flow you are comfortable with and gravity will allow the solution to flow.
Once the bag is nearly empty, or your body has taken as much fluid as it allows, first clamp the tube to stop the flow of water then gently remove the tip. Lightly massage your abdomen from left to right (up the left side, then left to right below the navel). Continue laying down until the urge to have a bowel movement is strong. Go to the toilet and let your body do its thing.
Be sure to clean equipment thoroughly after every use. Refill for a minimum of 2-3 times and use water in entire enema bag for maximum efficiency.
The best time to douche is first thing in the morning before you shower. The most comfortable and hygienic place to douche is the toilet, however you may prefer the bathtub or shower.
Combine 750ml of lukewarm filtered water with 80-100ml of apple cider vinegar, then pour the solution into the durable silicone bag. Using the easy-to-hang hook, position the bag no more than 3 feet above where you will be.
The flow control clamp helps to ensure a consistent gentle stream. Allow a little of the solution to release into the toilet or sink, then clamp the tube to stop the flow. This releases any air bubbles.
Sit on the toilet (or position . yourself with your hips pointing upwards in the bath) and gently insert the nozzle into your vagina as far as it goes. Release the clamp and allow the water to gently spray into your vagina then drain into the toilet. Remove the nozzle and stay seated for an extra 30-60 seconds so it drains completely.
Be sure to clean and sanitise your kit after EVERY use and allow to dry fully before storing away. Wash the bag with soap and water. Use natural soap or make your own.
Allow the bag, tubing and nozzle to soak for several minutes, then remove and rinse with plain tap water. Finally, run a mix of warm soapy water through the bag and tubing until empty.
Use only filtered water in your solutions and ensure the solution is a comfortable temperature (between 36-38C or 98-102F).
Note: The recommended time to retain the enema solutions is set out in solution recipes. However, always listen to your body. This process should not cause high levels of discomfort.
