10 Benefits of Coffee Enemas

Jan 13, 2023

One exceptionally beneficial way to eliminate toxins from your liver, gallbladder and lower colon quickly, and actually very inexpensively is with a coffee enema. Enemas, also referred to as colon hydrotherapy and colonics offer a wide variety of health benefits. 

Hydrotherapy dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Accordion to William Lieberman, M.D., verification of the frequent use of the enema by the Egyptians came from Herodotus (484-425 B.C.). Herodotus wrote: "The Egyptians clear themselves on three consecutive days, every month, seeking after health by emetics and enemas for they think that all disease comes to man from his food."  

Today, coffee enemas are utilized in holistic cancer treatment protocols.Max Gerson, M.D. founder of the Gerson Institute, believed coffee enemas stimulate a complex enzyme system —where free-radicals are greatly diminished and carcinogens are combated.

With great success, Gerson developed a therapy program for many diseases. Coffee enemas were utilized in combination with fresh juices with oils and other supplements. Gerson would recommend up to six enemas a day for terminally ill cancer patients. 

Though no one knows exactly how the coffee enemas work, it’s believed that they act as a dialysis of blood across the gut wall. Since all of the blood in the body passes through the liver every three minutes, the liver pulls toxins out of the blood during the process. Coffee enemas are not just for cancer patients. but for anyone looking to boost energy, improve health and increase digestion.

Here are 10 benefits of using coffee enemas:

  • Helps kill parasites and candida
  • Increases energy, improves mental clarity, and stabilizes mood
  • Alleviates pain and headaches
  • Helps with depression, mood swings, and sluggishness
  • Toxic elimination of up to 600%
  • Detoxifies and heals the liver
  • Promotes weight-loss
  • Improves digestion and cleans the colon
  • Promotes more frequent bowel movements
  • Dispels gas and bloating

How to administer an enema

What you'll need:

  •  Enema bag or bucket: This is a great enema kit that contains several "tip" styles, two flow nozzles, and even an "enema prep" bulb that I personally love. 
  • Organic, high-quality coffee: See if you can find a local coffee roaster company that you can support. If not, there are many organic coffee companies that sell their product online. If you want to take it a step further with the quality and freshness, you can buy your own coffee roaster and reap all of the health benefits of fresh roasted coffee. 
  • Coffee filter 

How to prepare the coffee enema:

  1. Grind coffee beans and measure 2 Tbs of the grounds
  2. Pour 3 cups of filtered water (this is very important - do not utilize municipal water as it has been treated with chemicals that are not beneficial to your colon or large intestines) into a small sauce pot. Bring to a light simmer. 
  3. Use enema prep bulb to pull from heated water what will fit in the bulb. Set aside and let it come to room temperature. 
  4. Pour 2 Tbs coffee grounds into sauce pot. Remove from heat and let sit for approx 5 minutes. 
  5. Place coffee filter over enema bucket and pour coffee mixture in. 
  6. Pour 2 more cups of filtered water into enema bucket. 

Enema preparation:

  1. Ensure temperature of water is not too hot and not too cold (cold will constrict your large intestines and therefore not allow for the full benefits of enemas). 
  2. Lay a dark colored towel (to reduce coffee stains) on the floor in front of the toilet with anything that will relax you. A pillow, a book, essential oils, etc. 
  3. Use s hook and hang enema bucket high in the air (a shower rod is nice). 
  4. Remove air from the hose. With the clamp on, but not closed, place the tip of the hose into the sink and allow the contents to flow out of the bag by holding the bucket up in the air. As soon as a bit drips out of the tube, quickly close the clamp. This will take out any unwanted air from the enema tube.

Performing the enema:

  1. Lie on your right side. Start with the enema prep bulb. Place tip inside your anus and squeeze all of the water into your colon. Empty your colon when the bulb is empty. 
  2. Lie on your right side. Gently place tube tip into anus and start the flow of the liquid. If you feel uncomfortable, massage your belly. Allow the tube to empty into your colon and once all contents have made its way in, tighten the clamp and remove the tube. Set aside. 
  3. Try to hold contents for up to 15 minutes. If it becomes too uncomfortable, don't strain, listen to your body. Some people can hold it longer than others. 
  4. When you have decided your time is up, sit on the toilet and allow contents to flow out of you. Give yourself time as the release can come in waves. I suggest to give yourself at least 15 minutes on the toilet.
