Soap Suds Enema

Many people feel that a warm water enema does not produce enough bowel action for a thorough cleaning of the colon.

Soap is a surfactant which means that it breaks down the water so you get "wetter water" making the water a more aggressive solvent. Your bowel contents do have some oils in them from the foods you eat and anything that can assist in breaking that oily mix down will make the contents become more liquid. The other effect of soap has already been mentioned which is the irritation effect that it causes on the bowel walls making you want to expel it. That is caused by the surfactant qualities, but also is caused by the soap composition making it somewhat alkaline and like an acid cleansing enemas and colonics, their primary objective is to eliminate accumulated waste matter that results in bloating, along with decay and rot that adds to the toxin load.


Add solution to enema bag, mixing with warm  filtered water to achieve the desired amount.
Hang enema bag about 24 in. above rectum. A good tool for this is the  IV Stand for Enemas
If you need better flow control of the enema solution.  The ramp clamp is a good option.

The left side position is the position most often used to receive take an enema.
Insert  nozzle into the rectal opening, always use a lubricant when the inserting anything into the rectal opening [anus]( Super Salve  Surgilube  Vaseline 13oz.  Personal Lubricating Jelly  Astroglide Personal Lubricant  K-Y Jelly Personal Lubricant).  Many people use vegetable oil or olive oil as a lubricant.

Inject solution slowly, approximately one  cup per minute (8oz.) and take as much as possible.
When the desired amount has been achieved remove the nozzle.
Lie in position for several minutes you can massage abdomen while waiting.

Hold the coffee solution for 15 to 30 minutes.
If you cannot hold the coffee solution for the entire 15 to 30 minutes just move to the toilet and release.
After you have released the solution try lessening the amount of coffee solution in the water and repeat the enema again.

When you have held the enema for the required time move to the toilet and release the enema.

Massaging the abdomen while expelling the enema helps move the contents in the colon toward the rectum.

The best position for expelling your enema is squatting. 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. Squatting, supports the abdominal wall and the bowel as we bear down, this brings about an easier bowel movement.
People who use the squatting position tend to have fewer hemorrhoids, hernias, anal fissures, varicose veins and don't use as many laxatives.
The Welles Step is a tool that positions your body so that you are squatting when you sit on the toilet.
