Colon Tube Usage
SAFE COLON TUBE USAGE
Non-toxic silicone colon tubes are available from our extensive colon cleanse product website.
Once your enema bag is full, hang the bag from a towel rack, showerhead, shower curtain, or IV stand. Lubricate your colon tube. Lie down on your left side in a comfortable location and insert the colon tube. (How the colon tube is inserted varies between individuals.)
The preferred way to insert a colon tube is to begin a flow of the enema to create a channel of water, then insert the tube in stages, gradually.
It is not really necessary to get the entire colon tube into your colon in order to accomplish a "high" enema. Use time, patience, and gravity to your benefit. Unless your colon is congenitally abnormal or something similar, the enema should be able to reach the "high" areas of the colon.
The recommended way to take a "deep" colon tube insertion is to start out on your left side. Take some tube and water and then, after the tube is "in" about 10 inches or more, turn over on your back, with hips elevated on a pillow.
Remember that it’s not necessarily how deep the colon tube goes in, but rather how deep the water goes in that really counts. This takes time, relaxation, and listening to one’s own body.
Slowly take the water from the enema over 5 to 15 minutes. (Hold a coffee enema at least 5 minutes longer, if not 20 minutes.)
Once you have taken the entire solution and have retained it for some time, sit on the toilet and let your colon and your body cleanse themselves.
UNSAFE COLON TUBE USAGE
Above all, NEVER force a colon tube.
Each person reacts differently to a colon tube, even when a channel of enema water or solution is created. You might never get the tube all the way in, and you should never force it.
Thin colon tubes actually can be dangerous. You run a higher risk of puncturing the colon when using thin colon tubes. Thus, I recommend a medium-diameter colon tube, about French 30 to 34.
