Alright first get an enema syringe like this one: Enema Link
This one seems big so the smaller the better. Or you can get an ear syringe. I asked for an enema syringe for kids at my pharmacy and they gave me something like the first one but smaller. Then get a bottle of natural vitamin E that has d-alpha tocopherols and mixed tocopherols (I personally use Solgar) and distilled water (water for injection will do). You don’t really need the distilled water so if you can’t find it that’s ok.
Then get a small cup, empty the contents of 10 capsules if they are 400IU or the equivalent of vitamin E capsules (they may be from 200IU each to 1.000IU or perhaps more), about 1 tbsp of distilled water, put the solution into the enema syringe and you’re ready to go!
You might have more gas from the enemas but don’t worry it will pass once you stop them and they will not get in the way of your colitis treatment. Always do the enema after you have a bowel movement so your bowels are as clean as possible. It took others a week or more to see results, while it took me only 3 days. Probably depends on how heavily you’re bleeding. One woman said when she had let it get really bad (she had had a relapse because she didn’t do it for 3 months only a couple of weeks) it didn’t help her anymore. I had blood and diarrhea but not very severe at that time so it took me less time.
Also, I started eating lots of vegetables like the man that had first written about the treatment had said. I cut down all sweets for a month, only a banana a day and mainly vegetables for food. After the first month I could eat almost everything. You may want to try and see what works best for you. You might not feel comfortable for a few days if you weren’t eating any vegetables to suddenly start eating them but after a few days it will pass.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
(Most definitely talk to your physician before beginning the use of enemas. Marine is obviously having great success with this, and that’s fantastic, but please please please make SURE to consult with your healthcare provider for advice. This is here to provide you with ideas on what is working for someone who has UC. THANKS FOR WRITTING THIS MARINE!!
Marine was kind enough to write this as a reply to a question someone posted on her original enema post, thanks for that question too Kevin!)
I was diagnosed with UC five years ago at the age of 24. According to the colonoscopy 70% of my colon was inflamed and full of ulcers. Thinking back they must have not been very deep though as I was going to the bathroom only 5-6 times a day and not 20-30 as some others.
