The most important safety measure while performing enema, as well as the most effective tool for deep colon cleanse is taking your sweet time to do it.
By taking time while performing the enema, most people can safely take up to 1-3 quarts of water into the colon. The only way to safely administer a complete colon cleanse is to inject the water slowly. By following this method, there is no need for you to use a long colon tip. Also, you will be able to avoid the unwanted pain, cramping and irritation to the colon.
During the enema session, open the enema clamp after inserting the enema nozzle in the rectum. Five to twenty minutes later, close the enema clamp. This is one of the most important techniques to perform a safe enema which is also deep enough, without inserting an enema tube deep inside the colon. The opening and closing of the enema clamp help you build up or bring down the pressure in your colon. Keep your hand on the clamp so that you can control the flow of the water without any difficulty. The key is to allow only a small amount of solution into your colon at a time.
By a small amount of solution, we mean just ½ to 1 cup of solution per fill. If you allow the enema solution to flow in too quickly, you will end up getting more harm than good. Along with that, if you administer the enema solution too quickly, you will trigger peristaltic movement in the sigmoid and in the rectum, making it impossible to get the solution into the transverse and ascending colon.
If you feel even the slightest hint of cramping occurring, immediately close the clamp to shut down the flow of solution. Take a deep breath and slowly let it go. Before you start with the session, dab a drop or two of peppermint essential oil on your hand or chest. Smell the oil and take a few deep breaths. Peppermint oil works really well to relax the mind and enhance the therapeutic value of your enema session. When the cramping subsides, resume administering small amounts of enema solution into the colon until you have administered all the water or where you no longer can tolerate the fullness.
