Latex colon tubes are available in various sizes.
Colon Tubes, also called "Tips" or even Catheters are inserted from the anus, through the rectum to deliver your enema solution into the colon (large intestine). Colon tubes are often preferred to traditional nozzles for insertion. This is because, nozzles don’t go deep enough, are often uncomfortable due to their stiffness and even result in “leaks”. Colon tubes, on the other hand, deliver the solution deeper into the colon for a deeper & thorough cleanse. They are more comfortable & also recommended for high enemas & therapeutic enemas where it is necessary to deliver the liquid higher up.
What thickness should be used?
Very personal. Although some naturopaths seem to suggest a thicker colon tube as preferable, we have found that most often people prefer thinner tubes. The reasons are several: For one, people are generally uncomfortable with thicker objects inside as it tends to be more uncomfortable. A thinner tube simply slides in quite easily. Another important reason is that thicker tubes have larger openings which can result in a sudden large volume of liquid into the colon, which can cause cramping. The thinner tubes let in the liquid more gently, thereby minimizing the chances of cramping.
