Enema Recipes: High Enemas

Enema and Douche Bag

The enema is an ancient healing method, many believe that all disease begins in the gut, and an enema is a good place to start.


  1. Do not use enemas for weight control.
  2. While enemas can be very helpful in helping you to detox or relieve constipation, if not done slowly and properly and with clean equipment, they can cause serious problems.
  3. If you are very constipated, or if you have diverticulitis, please seek the assistance of a medical professional.

While enemas can be very helpful for detox or to relieve constipation, if not done slowly and properly and with clean equipment, they can cause serious problems.

If you are very constipated, or if you have diverticulitis, please seek the assistance of a medical professional.

Always go slowly; do not force the fluid into your colon. If you encounter resistance to water flow, stop the slow and gently massage your abdomen and try again; repeat as necessary.

Always consult a medical professional if you are severely constipated, before performing an enema. And in the future, don’t allow yourself to get so constipated, by using a gentle enema at the first sign of constipation, or by taking herbs for constipation.

High enemas

I am not a doctor and am not qualified to advise you on your specific health situation. My intent is merely to raise awareness and express opinion.

These enemas are designed to push the fluid all the way to the cecum – the beginning of the colon (where the small intestine dumps into the colon). The first time you do one of these, you many not find them ‘easy’ to introduce, so I recommend first doing an ‘easy’ enema (above) such as pure water or castile soap enema, to remove as much fecal matter as possible, that would otherwise cause resistance.

Warm Water Enema

See Easy to Take and Soothing Enemas for instructions.

Sweet Dairy Whey Enema Instructions

This enema is recommended for acidifying the colon, primarily to improve the habitat for beneficial acid-living bacteria and reduce candida albicans populations. It is also mineralizing and helps with detox. This is part of WIT (Webster Implant Technique) originated by David Webster in his book Acidophilus & Colon Health (see Amazon for more). See also TheWholeWhey.com.

The main idea is to get this mixture all the way to the cecum at beginning of the large intestine (where the small intestine dumps into the colon), where most of the probiotic bacteria reside. This requires at least 2 quarts of water. If you cannot get all of it in before you need to void, then void all and do another 2 quarts.

David Webster recommends following this enema with a probiotic implant. Although I believe any good quality probiotic is effective as an implant (including yogurt), Mr. Webster recommends Kyo-Dophilus (iHerb product code WAK-61049) or other good probiotic, which is ‘specially cultured human strains of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria’ that should colonize in your colon. I use iFora (iHerb product code SED-21001) because muscle testing indicates it is very good for me, whereas Kyo-Dophilus is not. See Probiotic Implant instructions below.


  • 3 – 4 Tbsp powdered sweet dairy whey*
  • 2 quarts filtered water, divided
  • use a Davol tip to deliver the fluids farther up into the colon (see Enema Basics)
  1. Warm water to 120° F. Dissolve whey in 8 oz (1 cup) of the warmed water, then pour into into enema bag, and add remaining 3 cups warmed water. Allow to cool to 105°. Hang in chosen spot. Insert tip (soap is a good lubricant), crouch if necessary so tip is about 2 feet below the bag, and allow fluid to flow into bowel, massaging abdomen to get all the fluid in, especially when cramping.
  2. Alternately, assume “head down, buttocks up” position, resting on knees and elbows while the enema is flowing. This downward tilt helps to get the fluid moving into the upper colon.
  3. Lie on floor/in bed on right side for 5 minutes, massaging abdomen to encourage flow into the upper colon; roll over to left side for another 5 minutes, continuing to massage abdomen. Then expel into toilet.
  4. Repeat with another 2 quarts of whey/water mix, if desired. Follow with a probiotic retention/implant enema (see below).

* I use Bob’s Red Mill Sweet Dairy Whey, a byproduct of the Oregon cheese industry (available at iHerb.com if you can’t find it at your local natural foods store). However, if I have at least 8 oz fresh liquid whey from cheesemaking, that is even better to use, as it has not been dried, and is rich in probiotics.

Probiotic Enema instructions

I include this in the high enema section, but it can also be used for the lower part of the colon. See also Probiotic Retention enema, below.

You want probiotic food or supplement that contains bifidobacteria (bifidus). This is because acidophilus (and other lactobacillus bacteria) prefer the small intestine and bifidobacteria (bifidus) prefer the large intestine (colon), so you’ll get the best results if your choice of probiotic includes bifidus.

You can use plain, unsweetened commercial yogurt or kefir, but  make certain it says “contains live bacteria,” (and not “made with live bacteria”). However, most yogurt does not contain bifidus, but some do (read the label). If your yogurt does not contain bifidus, open up 1 – 2 capsules of a bifidus probiotic and stir into the warmed yogurt before mixing with the water. Or culture your own yogurt using a culture that contains bifidus.

Or you can use probiotic supplements; however, liquid whey, yogurt or kefir are far better than supplements, as these have billions more probiotic bugs than dried probiotic in capsules.

Choose a probiotic that includes bifidus (bifidobacteri), as these are the dominant flora in the colon (acidophilus prefer the small intestine).

If using powdered probiotic (or capsules), choose one high in bifidus (bifidobacteria), as this is the primary beneficial bacteria in the colon; Kyo-Dophilus is generally recommended as it contains specially cultured human strains of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria that should implant in your intestines.

[NOTE: While Kyo-Dophilus-9 is generally recommended (iHerb product code WAK-61049), I have a sensitivity to Kyo-Dophilus-9 (so it is antagonistic in me). Instead, I use iFlora, which tests good for me using muscle testing, and contains bifidus. What tests good for one person, may not for the next. I highly recommend getting tested for several probiotics to find the one that is best for you. See NAET: Find a Practitioner. ]


  • 2 quarts warm filtered water,
  • 2 Tbsp liquid whey, yogurt or kefir, or 4 – 5 capsules of probiotic (dump the powder out of the capsules), OR
  • 1/8 tsp powdered probiotic
  1. Warm water to 120° F. Allow to cool to 110° F. Stir in yogurt/kefir/probiotic until dissolved. If using capsules, open caps and dump contents into warm water. Fill bag and hang from prepared location. Insert tip (soap is a good lubricant). If standing in shower, crouch so tip is about 2 feet below the bag, and allow fluid to flow into bowel.
  2. Lie on side and hold as long as possible, at least 5 minutes, massaging abdomen gently in large counter-clockwise circles. Then expel into toilet.
  3. You may want to use only 1 quart at a time, especially if you have difficulty holding this enema.
