When using a cleansing enema you only need to hold the solution for a few minutes to get the desired results. But a longer period o holding the solution is required when using as a healing enema. 30 minutes to an hour or two when used as a healing enema.

When you are able to hold the enema for a couple of minutes move to the toilet and release the enema. The longer you hold the enema the better the results. This applies up to a point of about 30 minutes to an hour. You should never try to hold a large volume enema over an hour.When we say large volume enema , we mean an enema of approximately 2 qts. or more.
After you have finished this enema series you might want to take a Cool or Cold saltwater enema to restore peristalsis to the colon.
Massaging the abdomen while expelling the enema helps move contents toward the rectum.
The best position to expel the enema is squatting over the toilet. The squatting position puts pressure on your abdomen from your thighs.
In many countries, toilets are made so that people squat when they move their bowels. The Welles Step positions your body so that you are squatting when you sit on the toilet. Squatting, supports the abdominal wall and the bowel as we bear down, brings about an easier bowel evacuation.
People who use the squatting position tend to have fewer hemorrhoids, hernias, anal fissures, varicose veins and use less laxatives.
