10 Reasons Why You Should Try A Coffee Enema

If you are serious about looking after your health then you should definitely read this article!

In my “10 reasons why you should try a coffee enema” list are some pretty convincing facts, and the best part is you don’t get addicted to coffee if you take it this way! Enemas have been around since the dawn of time and have even been recorded in biblical scripts. They are making a come back as people are starting to see the health benefits of including enemas into their daily routines.

Especially coffee enemas which are powerful detoxifiers, due to some amazing compounds within the coffee that stimulate the liver to produce Glutathione S transferase, a chemical which is known to be the master detoxifier in our bodies.

Glutathione S transferase binds to toxins and the toxins are then released out of the body along with coffee.

Detoxifying our bodies on a regular basis is more important than ever due to the increasing amount of toxins our bodies need to deal with everyday, from home to office, man made products, food, water, the air we breathe, and our busy stressful lifestyles.

Here are 10 Reasons on Why You Should Try A Coffee Enema:

  1. Reduces levels of toxicity by up to 600%
  2. Cleans and heals the colon, improving peristalis.
  3. Increases energy levels, improves mental clarity and mood.
  4. Helps with depression, bad moods, sluggishness.
  5. Helps eliminate parasites and candida.
  6. Improves digestion, bile flow, eases bloating.
  7. Detoxifes the liver and helps repair the liver.
  8. Can help heal chronic health conditions (along with following a raw plant based diet).
  9. Helps ease “die-off” or detox reactions during periods of fasting or juice fasting, cleansing or healing.
  10. Used regularly in the Gerson Institute treatment protocol for healing cancer patients naturally

And no it does not have the same addictive properties to it if you take it this way, and in turn, you cannot get these benefits by drinking it!

By taking it orally its going to go through your digestive system and stomach acids, therefore null and voiding any benefits you get if you take your coffee via the portal vein to the liver!

Even if you are sensitive to caffeine it won’t affect you taking your coffee this way.

Definitely do not attempt to use decaf coffee though, you won’t get the benefits.

Ok, so how do I do it?

First off you will need to purchase an enema kit, you can buy a traveller’s kit or something a bit more robust such as the plastic bucket type kits. I prefer the traveller’s kit as its easy to store and discreet for travelling. You can buy these kits from Newton’s Pharmacy in Sydney, if you don’t live in Sydney you can order with Newton’s online.

Buy some premium ground ORGANIC coffee beans and keep them in the freezer until you need to use the coffee. It must be organic.

Its a good idea to do your coffee enema after a bowel movement if you can, this helps you retain the coffee for longer. So mornings are best for most people. If you are constipated do not worry, do the enema anyway, this will get things moving nicely!

Grab a saucepan and put 2 – 3 tablespoons (2T if you are just starting out) of organic coffee in the saucepan. Add 3 cups of FILTERED water to the pot. It must be filtered water. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat after 15 minutes and let it cool. When its body temperature (you can test this by placing a clean finger into the coffee, it will be neither hot or cold) strain through a nut milk bag into a clean glass pouring jar.

Head to the bathroom with your strained coffee and set up a space and something comfortable for you to lie down on. Hint: Be near a toilet and use an old towel as you sometimes may get slight coffee leakage. Grab a pillow and some reading material as you will be here for approximately 12 – 15 minutes.

Now assemble your enema kit. It must have a tube and nozzle attached to the bucket or bag. Make sure its 1 metre above ground level, hanging on a towel rail or shower rail is a good idea. There will an attachment near the nozzle that allows you to stop or start the flow of coffee once you have poured it into the bag or bucket. Ensure this is in the off position before pouring the coffee into the bag!

Once the coffee is in the bag or bucket hold tube and nozzle over sink or shower plug and turn it on and allow the coffee to run through the tube until there are no air bubbles. Stop the flow again once this is done.

Grab some coconut oil and apply to the nozzle for ease of insertion. Lie down on your towel on your right hand side with your knees drawn up.

Insert the nozzle till its about 1 inch inside the rectum. Turn on the flow of coffee slowly until the bag or bucket is emptied.

Now you can either remain lying on your right side or lie on your back with your feet up above head level or feet resting against a wall above head level. You can even do some Yogi moves like a shoulder stand or a half plough type position, this helps get the coffee moving round nicely, you may also hear some funny squirting noises from your tummy, this is a good sign and an indication of the bile being stimulated for release.

Try to retain the enema for 12 – 15 minutes. You may feel some strong urges to go to the toilet, especially the first few times you try this. Try to hold on for as long as you can, quite often the sensations pass. As you do them more regularly you will be able to retain for longer. 15 minutes max is all you need.

When you are ready to release head to the toilet and let it go.

You should feel alot lighter in body and mind by now!

To keep your enema kit in tip top shape clean with a mild detergent and ensure everything is dry before packing away.

Coffee enemas are very safe and are sometimes taken up to 6 x a day in chronically ill patients. If you are healing, on a detox program or cleansing I recommend daily enemas, maintenance – weekly enemas. If you are wishing to remove candida and pathogens try 3 back to back, and continue to do on a regular basis.

If you have tried a coffee enema for the first time or have just started regular coffee enemas I would love to hear from you! Are you feeling the benefits? And if so, what are they? Drop me a line or two in the comments section below :-)

    I have heard about great benefits of coffee enema and I am considering taking a cup on a regular basis. Tried looking for sites which are selling coffee enemas in Australia and stumbled on this site: https://enemakits.com.au/products/coffee/

    Does anyone has feedback on their products? Thanks in advance :-)

    • Victor

      Look at Gaps Australia, they have the stainless steel bucket type of enema kits for around $72.00 good buy and easy to clean

    • Jacinta Watson

      Hi N.Barnes, I recently purchased the silicone enema from https://enemakits.com.au/ which came with coffee and found it to be very simple to use and clean. Definitely recommended. There are some product reviews on the products now while might help.

      Thanks for sharing Jacinta!

  • Belle

    Hi, I went on a health retreat in Bali and we were told to use the water from the hot water tap & add a pinch of salt. I’ve come back with a whole bunch more bacteria than before. Can bacteria in the water survive in the salted water and stay in the colon? Any info/insight is appreciated, thanks.

    • TheRawFoodKitchen

      Hi Belle I would not be using hot water out of a tap in Bali, unless its gone through at least a triple filter process. Bali water is highly contaminated. Do you know if it was filtered water or not? I suggest going on a Parasite cleanse, take Bentonite Clay daily pro-biotiocs and get colonics from a reputable colon hydrotherapist to help clean your colon and re-establish good gut flora. Hope this helps!

  • Heather Fae McLean

    I have recently returned from Malaysia and have started to do Coffee enemas – I only have coffee grounds enough for a couple of weeks – I don’t need the enema kit but do need to buy more coffee – preferably in Victoria…..Could someone please tell me does the coffee need to be special or just organic regular grounds – suggestions of what I need to buy and where. Thank you

    • Jacinta Watson

      Hi Heather,
      You can use organic ground coffee for your enemas. There are special roasts however that are specially made for enemas which have a higher caffeine and palmitic acid content for better results. Per the info I posted to N.Barnes below, I get mine from https://enemakits.com.au/products/coffee/ which I have found to be good quality. Hope it helps and good luck!

  • Honor Morningstar

    Hey beautiful thanks so much for this info Amanda. I’m mid detox/cleanse and loving it. Though enemas are definitely my least favourite part! So far just been doing water enemas, but today is my first with coffee. Do you think it’s good to do a water enema first before the coffee? To get a deeper cleanse. And also what quantity of coffee liquid do you recommend. The amount I made today is only about 500ml. I’ve been doing water enemas with about 1L. Best to top up with water or just use the 500ml?
    Thanks for all your amazing info sunshine xxx

    • TheRawFoodKitchen

      Hi gorgeous Honour congrats on your detox / cleanse. Yes a good idea to water first, you will find you will be able to hold your coffee one for much longer as the first enema will help clear out anything old or impacted in the lower colon first. I do 2T organic coffee to 4C filtered water, as you will find some water / coffee mix gets evapourated during the simmer process. Hope that helps and let me know how you go! :)

    • Honor Morningstar

      Thanks so much lovely! Feels good to do that. I’ve just completed a liver/gall bladder flush with a coffee enema. Big cleanse and reset happening this time round. Looking forward to fully renewed energy levels! :)

    • TheRawFoodKitchen

      You will be feeling a million dollars! Full power to you gorgeous girl :)

  • Heather Fae McLean

    I am interested to know if using a ball enema is of any use – I have purchased one to try and use actually sitting on the loo….I have tried the conventional enema bucket but find it is just about impossible for me with my aged body to get up from a prone position and make it to the loo….complicated because my loo is seperate. As I understand it the last part of the descending colon is the only part that actually absorbs because enemas do not pass the splenic flexure anyway. Thoughts please.

    • TheRawFoodKitchen

      Hi Heather I am not familiar with the Ball Enema, (if any of our followers is please get in touch with us via the comments to discuss with Heather), but if it works for you please let us know as we may have other people on this discussion who cannot get up and down from the floor for a standard enema. And yes, enema’s do not clean the entire colon like colonics do, only the lower half, this is why its great to use enema’s as maintenance in between regular colonic appointments :)

      This is what I mean….it would be difficult to hold for long byt surely irrigating would have some effect if used slowly..

    • Heather Fae McLean

      I have heard that just 100ml of the coffee enema needs to reach the sigmoid to be effective – have no idea if this is true

  • first timer

    Is It ok to use the enema bottle?

    • Heather Fae McLean

      Are you referring to the enema ball as I mentioned? For me it does seem to leave me feeling clean and I think it is helpful…..I flush twice – first time with water and then with the coffee

    • first timer

      no, this bottle

    • Heather Fae McLean

      That looks interesting – where did you get that….I imagine it would be similar to the ball and probably can’t get enough into the colon….but why not try

    • Heather Fae McLean

      Also how much does it hold

    • Heather Fae McLean

      That looks useful for a flush

  • Suzy Monteiro

    Hi. I have recently looked into coffee enemas. When you recommend doing a water enema first.. is that just plain filtered water? Do you have a guide on how to best complete a home enema? And with the enema kit you recommended from Newtown Pharmacy.. are you able to send the link. I have only found the 1 and I’m not sure if it is the travel one. Thanks suzy

  • TheRawFoodKitchen

    Hi Suzy. Yes water enema is plain filtered water (but make sure its well filtered – no chlorine, fluoride etc). When you purchase the enema kit there should be instructions with it but its relatively easy :) Here is the link to the portable kit: http://shop.newtonspharmacy.com.au/epages/shsh11093.sf/en_AU/?ObjectID=18328295

    I prefer a weekly 2qts (sometimes a little more) weekly chamomile enema. So relaxing, so healthy, so detoxing!
