This probiotic retention enema, which I originally learned and adapted from Jini Patel Thompson, delivers probiotics directly to your colon. This is not a cleansing or flushing enema, but rather an implant or retention enema, where the goal is to hold the mixture in your colon until the liquid is completely absorbed.

Supplies you will need:

  • Fleet enema bottle—emptied and washed with soap and warm water (remove safety valve, if necessary, to improve flow)
  • Coconut oil for lubrication
  • 3 strains of probiotics, described below

Protren Probiotics (15% discount code: SARFD001)

  1. Bifidobacterium infantis
  2. Bifidobacterium bifidum
  3. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • You may also choose to take this high-potency probiotic orally, (which contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum & Lactobacillus bulgaricus) once per day, while you are doing the enemas

Natren Probiotics (15% discount code: SARFD001)

  1. Bifidobacterium infantis
  2. Bifidobacterium bifidum
  3. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Alternately, some people may simply buy this probiotic three-strain starter kit instead of the above three strains. This kit contains the same Lactobacillus acidophilus & Bifidobacterium bifidum- but Lactobacillus bulgaricus instead of the Bifidobacterium infantis strain)
  • You may also choose to take this high-potency probiotic orally, (which contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum & Lactobacillus bulgaricus) once per day, while you are doing the enemas

Method:

  1. To make the probiotic solution, add 2-3 oz warm water into a bowl and add the probiotics. The water should be distilled or filtered if possible.
  2. Insert enema in whatever way is most comfortable for your body. Here is an article that offers a few suggestions.
  3. Retain enema for approximately 60 minutes. Start on your right side for 10 minutes, then lay on your back for 10 minutes, then on your left side for 10 minutes. If any of these positions (usually the left side) gives you the urge to use the bathroom, just skip that position.
  4. You can gently massage your abdomen in a counterclockwise direction (up your left side, across the top of your abdomen and then down your right side) to move the enema contents up your colon. For some, all the water will be absorbed at this point and you can then get up and walk around again or just go to bed for the evening.
