How to Take Water Enema

There is an enema pot easily available in the chemist shop that you can use.

Attach all accessories like a pipe to enema bucket and nozzle to the pipe. Then take warm water or recommended medicated water in enema bucket and place it on the height where you want to take it.

Apply warm sesame oil or coconut oil on the nozzle and on the opening of the anus.

Lie down on the left lateral side of your body with the right knee drawn to the abdomen.

This position is an accurate position to take an enema, which helps in easier passage and flow of water into the rectum.

Gently insert enema nozzle with your right hand into the rectum and let water flow into the rectum from the enema bucket kept on height with gravity.

Press the pipe to stop the flow of water, when enema bucket is going to empty and remove the nozzle from the anus slowly and carefully.

Walk and do circular massage of the abdomen. After holding it for 15 to 30 minutes or for the recommended duration in your health condition, you can evacuate the bowel.
