Is doing a coffee enema worth it / necessary / just how!?!?! 

When you consider all of these benefits: 

  • improving your mood
  • supporting your digestion
  • stimulating parasympathetics (rest, digest, heal)
  • improving detoxification
  • boosting glutathione production
  • improving energy levels 
  • relieving constipation
  • support  to heal cancer
  • increasing antioxidant activity 

… maybe considering doing coffee enemas becomes worthwhile. 

The health benefits are so profound from this one, simple healthy habit, so please hear me out!

Coffee enemas are not the most comfortable thing in the world, true. BUT! they are also not that bad, and again, look at all the benefits!

So let’s go through this step by step.

With a coffee enema, you’ll use a coffee specifically made for enemas. It is not your everyday morning cup of coffee type of coffee. 

The sourcing is different, the roasting process is different, the benefits are different.

With a coffee enema, the coffee is quickly absorbed by the hemorrhoid veins in the rectum. This brings the healthy, good stuff all the way to your liver in a matter of minutes!

Specifically, the coffee enema can help declog the bile duct, improve detoxification, and delivers important nutrients to your liver. 

To do a coffee enema:

  • use pure, filtered or distilled water
  • only use organic coffee specifically sourced and processed for enemas, and not decaf!
  • always make sure to let it cool off to a comfortable temperature – check by washing your hands and then placing a finger into the solution. If it’s a nice temperature and you can easily keep your finger in there without any discomfort, you’re good to go.
  • make sure you have the time and don’t feel rushed 
  • always be gentle about the whole process
  • drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration 

Step by Step: 

  • Bring 4 cups of water to a boil
  • Add 4 tbsp of coffee enema coffee grounds to the water when it is boiling
  • Without the lid, let simmer for 3 minutes
  • Put the lid back on and let simmer for another 15 minutes
  • Strain the coffee through a metal filter into another non-plastic container
  • Allow to cool down to body / room temperature 
  • Pour into the enema bag / bucket
  • The higher up the enema bag / bucket is in relation to you, the faster the stream will flow. 18 inches high tends to allow for an easier to handle flow
  • Place some towels on the floor, make sure the room is a comfortable temperature 
    • If you like, you can use a pillow, too, of course
  • Put some coconut oil on the end of the hose/nozzle 
  • Lay on your left hand side, knees comfortably bent
  • Insert the end of the hose into your rectum and start letting the enema solution flow in slowly 
  • Regulate the rate as needed, and do make sure to go slowly 
  • You can:
      • do all 4 cups at once, hold for 15 minutes
      • do 2 cups, hold for 7 – 15 minutes, slowly release into the toilet; repeat with the second 2 cups 
  • You can turn onto your back if you like as well
  • When you’ve finished with 15 minutes (or you can’t hold any longer), slowly get up and proceed to slowly release into the toilet 
  • When finished, always make sure to clean the bag and hose properly with warm water and use hydrogen peroxide to make sure everything is clean. Allow to fully dry before putting it away. 

Extra tips (these are not a must, and don’t do all in one enema): 

  • Take a binder 1/2 hour before doing the enema – Biotoxin Binder, ViRadChem Binder, or HM-ET Binder, to help remove toxins that are expelled during the enema
  • Add a binder into the enema solution (just one of them, not all)
  • Add 5-10 drops of HydrOxygen per cup of water into the cooled off enema solution
  • Add 5-10 drops MitoATP per cup of water into the cooled off enema solution – extra healing, mitochondrial support, and detoxification 

How often / who can do this: 

  • If you are in the midst of a detox, you can do this up to 3-4 times a week. More than that is not necessary under normal detox circumstances
  • For maintenance, 1- 4 times a month is plenty
  • It’s better to avoid coffee enemas during pregnancy and for children 

What if you can’t hold it for 15 minutes: 

  • Make sure your bowels are as empty as you can before doing the enema 
  • Try a lighter enema – start with 1 tbsp of coffee to 4 cups of water, then slowly increase from there as you can
  • Split it into two uses like mentioned in step 14 above
  • Make sure the enema has the right temperature for you – finding the temperature that works best for you tends to help a lot!

What if you feel crummy after the enema: 

  • Typically that means your bile duct is really struggling
    • start taking Advanced TUDCA for extra support
    • start with a lower dose enema (1 tbsp of coffee per 4 cups)
    • hold the enema for as long as you can but don’t make yourself suffer
    • make sure to take a binder before the enema to help with the toxin release
  • Parasites may be involved 
  • Drink plenty of clean, filtered water
  • Consider replenishing minerals with CT-Minerals 

It looks like a lot, but it really isn’t. I just really wanted to make sure to go into the details so you can see there are options and it really isn’t scary. 

Just make sure to take it slow, don’t rush the process, and do realize this is a process. 

It doesn’t just happen overnight and you might have a little bit of a learning curve to really hone in on how it works best for you. 

You’ll see, coffee enemas are a very effective way to support your health!
