Coffee Enemas – The Facts

So, what is a coffee enema? In plain and simple terms, a coffee enema is a procedure whereby a mix of coffee ingredients is injected into the anus to cleanse the rectum and large intestines. Some people believe that it helps cleanse your liver and gallbladder, it releases energy and helps to remove toxins from the body. If you are interested in coffee specifically, read more over here.

The most common preparation method for the enema itself is as follows:

Place 2 to 3 cups of purified water and 2 to 3 tablespoons of coffee into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes and then turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. You can add one or two ice cubes to speed up the cooling process.

If you want to make a batch for several enemas, just double or triple the ingredients as required. Wait until the water is comfortable to the touch.  If the water is too hot or too cold, retaining the enema will be more difficult.  Strain the liquid through a fine strainer or coffee filter paper into a clean enema bag.  Screw on the top of this bag.  The enema is now ready to use.


Hose – You need to ensure that the plastic hose is fastened securely onto the enema bag and the enema tip is attached to the other end.

Remove any air from the enema tube the following way.  Place the tip in the sink.  Hold up the enema bag above the tip until the water begins to flow out. Then close the clamp. This expels any air in the tube.

Lubricate the enema tip with a small amount of soap or oil. You can use castor oil but beware too much lubrication will cause the tip to fall out of the rectum.

The Procedure

The most preferred position is lying on your back on a towel, on the bathroom floor or in the bath tub.  You could sit and do this too but generally that position is not as comfortable as lying down.

The container needs to be placed above you with the clamp closed.  You need to hang the bag approximately one foot above your abdomen.

The next thing is to insert the tip gently and slowly.  Keep adjusting the position of this until it goes all the way in.

You then need to open the clamp and hold the enema bag about one foot above the abdomen. The water usually takes a few seconds to begin its flow. You can gently squeeze the bag to help speed up the process.

When all the liquid is inside you, the bag will become flat, close the clamp and you can either leave the tube inserted, or remove it, totally your choice.

For optimum results it is best to try and retain the enema for 15 minutes. Remaining in the same position always helps with this. Walking around is not recommended.

When your 15 minutes is up, go to the toilet and empty out the water. It is okay if some water remains inside, this helps with hydration.

Health Benefits of Coffee Enemas 

Helps to eliminate parasites and candida. We are all regularly exposed to chemicals in food, water, air, and the environment.  Our bodies are often unable to fully eliminate all toxins by itself. This can result in a gradual buildup in your intestines of impacted fecal matter, parasites, candida, and other toxins. A coffee enema can effectively flush these out of the colon by breaking things up and passing through and out of the body.

They can detoxify and repair your liver. If you suffer with bloating, stomach pain, flatulence, and other problems commonly associated with poor digestion, chances are your liver is overburdened and not functioning up to par. With a coffee enema, the coffee and all of its nutrients are directly absorbed into the liver through the colon wall, where they take on the immense toxic load that the liver is otherwise unable to process quickly enough on its own.

A decade of detailed research in Germany stated that coffee worked even better than water as an enema ingredient, because it offered powerful analgesic benefits, which can be particularly helpful when undergoing other dietary cleanses and detoxes that can cause issues and pain symptoms.
