An Instructional Guide to Your NaturaLyfe Enema Kit
The NaturaLyfe Enema Kit comes with two containers, one glass and one stainless steel, as well as medical grade silicone tubing equipment. Both containers can be cleaned, sterilized, and reused.
Potential health benefits
When external toxins are ingested, they can build up in the colon or liver, causing adverse health effects. Clearing out these toxins helps take care of the body’s health by improving colon and liver function. The NaturaLyfe Enema Kit provides a safe way to clean out the colon at home without assistance.

How often should I cleanse my colon?
Healthy individuals are advised to perform an enema once a week. Individuals who are prone to acid reflux, gas, and/or constipation can perform enemas up to 2-3 times a week.
Individuals with chronic illnesses such as cancer or autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, etc. may be prescribed multiple enemas per day.
Individuals who are fasting will release more toxins and bacteria within their body, which an enema can flush out.

Cleaning your Enema Kit
Before an enema: Put detergent in the bucket, then fill up with hot water and run the solution through the tubing. Rinse thoroughly. Vinegar or hydrogen peroxide can also be used in place of water. Harsher substances or chemicals should never be used to clean your Enema Kit.
After an enema: Wash and dry the bucket and tubing using the same procedure after the enema. If using the stainless steel bucket, dry by hand.
Silicone tubing is strongly advised for one time usage. If the user chooses to use tubing more than once, clean tubing similarly with hot water, and optionally, vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. Replace silicone tubing as often as possible. Unclean enema equipment can lead to various intestinal issues if unwanted bacteria and/or chemicals enter the body.
Preparing for an enema
Find a comfortable place to administer your enema, where you have a place to hang your enema bucket and space to lie down comfortably. It is advised that your perform an enema after you have had a bowel movement, to ensure your colon is as clean as possible.
Preparing the water: Use water that is distilled, filtered, or alkalized. Do not use tap water.
Preparing the tubing:
- Take the assembled enema kit to the sink.
- Press and lock the clamp on the tubing so the liquid does not flow down all the way.
- Fill the bucket with your solution. Make sure it is lukewarm.
- Hold the tubing and enema tip over the sink and allow the solution to run out until all air bubbles are pushed out. Once the tubing is free of air bubbles, lock the clamp tight,
- Lubricate the enema tip with a salve, olive oil, or water-based non-toxic lubricant.
Hanging the bucket:
Hang the bucket so it is about 10-18 inches above where your rectum will be. The bucket can also be placed on a nightstand, IV pole, or held in hand. (Please be advised that if the bucket does not hang, the S-hook technology that ensures all of the solution drains out will not be able to work.) Make sure the bucket is stable so it will not fall or tip over.
Place a towel and plastic sheet on the floor or bed where you will be lying down. Make sure the tubing running from the bucket to your rectum is as straight as possible so as to not obstruct the flow of liquid. Tubing length can be adjusted as desired.
Performing an enema
Positioning your body:
- Laying on your back: Allows solution to enter quickly. This position is advised for advanced enema users.
- Laying on your left side with knees drawn up to your chest: Allows the solution to reach the topmost portion of the descending colon. User can then roll onto their right side so the solution continues traveling into the transverse colon and ascending colon.
- On hands and knees: Allows for deeper cleansing, as the solution can travel quickly to the ascending colon. Rest your bottom on the back of your legs and arch your back. This position is not advised for individuals with knee problems.
Taking in the enema solution:
- Carefully insert the small enema tip about 3 inches into the rectum. Rotate or twist the tip while doing so for easier insertion.
- Take a deep breath and unlock the tubing clamp. Solution will begin to flow into the colon. If you experience discomfort, stop and close the clamp. Wait for a few moments before resuming. Stop as often as necessary to minimize muscle spasms.
- Do not clench your anal muscles to keep the nozzle tip in, as it tenses the body. Try to keep the body relaxed and keep the nozzle tip in through body placement.
- Take in up to a maximum of one quart of enema solution. This process can take as long as necessary so as to be comfortable.
- Hold in the enema solution for about 5 minutes.
- Remove the enema tip after taking in the amount of solution desired.
Do not overstretch the colon through the frequent use of high volume enemas. Colon receptors, which provide signals for bowel movements, can become desensitized, leading to issues with bowel movements. Frequent use of enemas can also dehydrate the body, as the colon expels all or much of its contents following an enema.
Clamp the tubing to stop the flow of liquid, then massage abdomen where it is painful. Once the pain disappears, the enema can be continued.
Pain can also occur when air enters the colon either at the beginning or the end of the enema. To ensure this does not happen, make sure that all air bubbles are removed from the tubing before starting an enema, and end an enema just before the solution runs out in the bucket.
Make sure the enema solution is at least at room temperature or slightly warmer, as cold solution can cause spasms.
Solution not entering body
The intestinal walls could be blocking the solution from flowing in, so try adjusting the tip of the tubing by pulling it out a little. Another possible cause is that the tubing has too many coils for solution to flow through smoothly. To address this, straighten out the tubing and make sure it slopes gently from the bucket to the body so gravity can pull the solution downwards. Incomplete bowel movements or lack of bowel movements could also mean that there is waste in intestines blocking the solution.
