SALINE (SALT WATER) ENEMA
"For Informational Use Only"
For more detailed information contact your health care provider
about options that may be available for your specific situation.
MEDICAL ENEMA DESCRIPTION
Over time, toxic waste can accumulate in the colon and liver, and then circulate throughout the body via the bloodstream. A clean and healthy colon and liver, then, are essential for the health of all the organs and tissues of the body.
There are two types of enemas - the retention enema and the cleansing enema. The primary action of the retention enema, which is held in the body for about fifteen minutes, is to help rid the liver of impurities. The cleansing enema, which is retained for only a few minutes, is used to flush out the colon.
When using any enema, keep in mind that they should never be used if there is rectal bleeding. In such a case, contact your health care provider immediately.
If you experience tension or spasms in the bowel while using an enema, try using warmer water (99°F to 102°F is a good temperature) to help relax the bowel. If the bowel is weak or flaccid, try using colder water (75°F to 80°F) to help strengthen it.
After using any enema, be sure to wash and sterilize the tip of the enema bag.

SALINE (SALT WATER) CONCENTRATION INFORMATION
MAKING A BASIC SALINE SOLUTION (FOR STEAM INHALATION THERAPY)
Heat 4 to 8 Quarts of water until boiling. Add 6 teaspoons Sea Salt (30 g)/1000 ml water or 1 ounce of Master Salt Solution per quart of water and let dissolve. This makes a 3 percent brine solution. Cover your head with a towel and inhale the vapors, keeping your face far enough from the hot steam so as not to burn yourself. Use inhalation therapy once or twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes.
MASTER SALT SOLUTION INSTRUCTIONS
To make a Master Salt Solution, loosely fill a closable glass container one-fourth to 1/3 full with Sea Salt crystals. I prefer Sea Salt. Do not use table salt since it often contains other ingredients that help it to pour smoother and may contain iodine. Un-iodized cooking salt without any added ingredients - should say only sodium chloride as an ingredient - may be used, if needed. Add good spring water or distilled water (depending on your use), completely filling the container. Let sit for approximately 24 hours and see if the Sea Salt crystals have completely dissolved. If so, add some more Sea Salt. Keep adding a little more Sea Salt until the water can no longer dissolve any more salt, the Sea Salt crystals will set on the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point, the solution will have become saturated at 26 percent, a satisfactory and ready to use Master Salt Solution. The 26 percent concentration now will remain stable. The glass can be refilled again with water and salt, continuing this process.
1% Master Salt Solution is 1 part Master Salt Solution and 100 parts water.
5% Master Salt Solution is 5 parts Master Salt Solution and 100 parts water.
8% Master Salt Solution is 8 parts Master Salt Solution and 100 parts water.

SALINE (SALT WATER ENEMA
When you add Salt to the water solution, making a saline solution, you reduce the transfer of water into and out of the colon. This prevents filling your kidneys and bladder with water. It will eliminate the frequent trips to urinate while receiving enemas.
To make the solution for the salt water (saline) enema, add:
2 Quarts Warm Water (102°F)
2 Tablespoons Salt (1 Tablespoon Per Quart of Water)
Warm the water and put in the solution in the enema bag. Add the phosphosoda, if desired to act as a laxative. Mix well. Click this wikipedia link for more information about phosphosoda.
Do not use petroleum jelly to lubricate the tip of the enema bag. Instead, use Vitamin E Oil (buy it in oil form or pierce the end of a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid onto the tip). The liquid will both ease the insertion and have a healing effect on the anus and the lining of the colon, if these areas are inflamed. Aloe Vera may also be used for this purpose.
The best position to assume when receiving the enema is "head down and rear up". After the liquid has been inserted, roll onto your back, and finally roll over and lie on your left side. As you are doing this, massage your colon to help loosen any fecal matter. Start on your right side and gradually move your fingers up toward the bottom of the rib cage, then across your abdomen and down the left side.
For a child, place the child on his or her left side. Be very gentle inserting the tip and never force it inside the anus. This could damage the colon and could be very dangerous. Do not give an enema to a child under 2 years of age.
Note: that 2 quarts is a lot of liquid. If you experience any pain during insertion, stop the flow of the enema bag and remaining in the same position, take deep breaths until the pain subsides. The resume the enema flow. If you expel the liquid before all of it has been inserted, simply begin the process over again. If pain persists, discontinue the enema procedure.
Hold the solution in your body for 3 to 4 minutes before allowing the fluid to be expelled. After 2 or 3 such sessions, you will find it easier to insert and hold the liquid. Hold the solution as long as you can before expelling.
Note: Always check with your health care provider before doing an enema.
