Enema Musts: 6 Things to Do (And 1 Thing You Should NEVER Do!)

Here are some tips to set you on your way to a perfect enema in no time.

Enema Must-Dos

1. Have the Right Equipment

There's a big difference between an enema bulb and enema kits such as enema bags/buckets. You want to make sure you've got the right equipment in order to obtain the results you're trying to achieve before you dive in.

2. Get Comfy

Have a comfortable space to do the enema therapy in and get to know all the different positions you can try. Some people like to use a bathtub, while others are more comfortable on the floor.

Figure out which 
enema position is the best one for your sense of ease and comfort. 

3. Take Your Time and Relax

It can be a big mental barrier to get over with putting something where the sun don't shine - but don't worry, it's not as scary as it sounds.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time so that you don't feel the need to rush. Taking a shower to help you feel clean and relaxed can be a great way to start your enema therapy session. 

Some people also like to practice some meditation style breathing techniques to help conquer any fear or feelings of embarrassment.

People have been doing enemas for thousands of years. Keep in mind that you're not the first, and you won't be the last. Connecting with others in an online community can be very helpful for answering any questions you might have.  

4. Use a Lubricant

We've mentioned this in other blog posts, but it's worth mentioning again. Without lubricant, you're going to be off to a rough start - literally.

An all-natural, organic lubricant will go far in making your experience a "smooth" one.  

5. Clean Your Equipment After Use

This may seem like an obvious tip, but knowing how to properly clean your equipment is important for sanity reasons. Cleaning instructions can be found here.

A basic guideline is to flush through hot soapy water after use, but some people also like to use acid to fully ensure their equipment is cleaned.

6. Be Close to a Toilet (and Shower)

What goes in must come out, and some people find it hard to hold the solution for a long time when first starting enema therapies. This doesn't have to be a worry so long as you're in a space where it won't matter.

For the first few times of doing the enema, we recommend that you make your bathroom your best friend. 

    The Big Enema "Don't"

    Curious about what the one thing you should NEVER do is?

    You should never, EVER put any enema solution in your body that is above the body's natural temperatures

    Water that is hotter than 115 Fahrenheit (45 centigrade) puts you at risk for scalding your colon. So, for example, if you've just brewed up some enema coffee for a coffee enema - make sure to let it cool FULLY first before using it.
