Coffee enemas encourage the liver to eliminate its current load of toxins and to produce more glutathione. This is a miracle cure when you have a hangover, or a detox headache, or the flu, or have just had anesthesia, or taken any synthetic drug. The coffee enema provides virtually instant relief. The relief will last as long as the body’s current toxic load remains below the liver’s ability to produce glutathione. For people with heavy toxic loads, this means they could benefit from doing four, six, even ten, coffee enemas per day to reduce liver stress.
Coffee enemas have completely eliminated my pain on too many occasions to remember: from allergies, colds, flu, injuries, and muscle soreness. Once you are in pain and finally muster the courage to try one, you will be hooked—coffee enemas are that effective. For people looking to detox, get healthy, and lose weight, coffee enemas help with each of these. Worst case scenario, a coffee enema forces you to lie down for 15 minutes per day and relax. Coffee enemas are an almost daily occurrence in our household and we enjoy every minute! So let’s get to it.
What is the best way to do a coffee enema?
- Bring the water and coffee to a boil together. Use approximately 1 heaping tbsp. of organic caffeinated coffee per cup of filtered water; boil for 15 minutes and allow to cool to a comfortable temperature. Decaffeinated coffee will not work and is laced with the chemicals used to decaffeinate it. Tap water is chlorinated and will kill off beneficial intestinal flora.
- Always use a three- to four-minute cleansing enema (eight-ounces of plain distilled water, lemon water, or sea salt water) before the coffee enema; this will make the coffee easier to retain for the full 12-15 minutes.
- Warm enemas are generally easier to retain. Use a disposable enema bottle or an enema bag or bulb to insert one to two cups of the strained coffee into the rectum. Lie on your right side and retain for twelve to fifteen minutes; then expel. If you do not feel the need to use the restroom immediately that is fine, simply continue with your day until the urge comes naturally.
When using only 1-2 cups, the coffee doesn’t reach far enough into the colon to interfere with electrolyte and mineral absorption in any way. The caffeine in the coffee should not be absorbed if the enema remains in the last several inches of the colon. If you do feel the effects of the caffeine, prepare your coffee with less than 1 heaping tablespoon per cup of water, and only perform the enema in the morning. (Please note that people adhering to Gerson Therapy for holistic cancer treatment, use up to 32 ounces of coffee per enema, instead of 1-2 cups. This can provide extra detoxification, but I find 1-2 cups is plenty for me.) In extreme detox cases, a green enema implant can be used to complement coffee enemas.
The Quick and Easy Coffee Enema: On many occasions I have needed a quick and easy coffee enema. In these cases, I skip the cleansing enema and use regular coffee brewed in a coffee pot. I do notice a difference in effectiveness, but it still provides relief—better some coffee than none!
Enema implants also aid in detoxification. Typically four-ounces of a raw green fluid (wheatgrass juice, blue-green algae, kale juice) is mixed with 1 cup of distilled water and inserted rectally. This implant is left in and absorbed through the colon wall. Ideally, implants are completely absorbed by the colon and never expelled. Always do an implant AFTER a cleansing enema to make sure it can be retained and absorbed. Implants are great for people with absorption problems because the blood receives the nutrients directly from the colon instead of the small intestine. During times of heavy detox, one to two implants can be inserted daily. Implants are more nourishing than a coffee enema, which strictly eliminates toxins. If you would like to do a coffee enema and a green implant in the same day simply be sure to do the coffee enema before the green implant to ensure the implant has adequate time to be fully absorbed.
