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. I recommend lubricating your colon tube with either Super Salve or Surgilube. 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 or solution, 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. After the tube is slowly inserted about 10 inches or more with solution being taken in, 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 solution goes in that really counts. This takes time, relaxation, and listening to one’s own body.
Slowly take in the enema solution over 5 to 15 minutes. (In the case of a coffee enema, take in the solution over 12 to 15 minutes.)
Once you have taken in the entire solution and have retained it for the recommended length of time, sit on the toilet and release the solution.
A snug connection between the tip of the colon tube and the rest of the colon tube is important. This connection can loosen over time, so if you notice that that connection is no longer secure, it’s time to replace the colon tube.
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 strongly recommend a
