With the approval of your physician, take a coffee enema 2-3 times per week for the first 3 months of your program. Thereafter, take a coffee enema as needed, if/when you feel toxic or experience problems with elimination. When they are no longer needed, you will not feel better or worse after the coffee enema, in other words, you will feel the same.
Coffee enemas are believed to be useful in aiding the liver in its detoxification processes, as well as aiding the colon in its activities of elimination. The efficient removal of metabolic waste and toxins through the colon is vital to the maintenance of health and the prevention of illness.
The coffee enema may be performed at any time you find convenient. It typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending upon the individual. It is best to choose a time when you will not feel rushed or disturbed. Most people prefer the morning, as taking the enema late in the day may disrupt sleep. Others find their sleep is not affected at all and prefer a coffee enema in the evening. There is no ‘best’ time and is a matter of personal preference.
• Coffee: Must be organically grown. Never use instant or decaffeinated coffees – they are processed and chemical-laden.
• Enema Bag: Any type of enema bag is acceptable, however most find the type designed to be a combination enema/douche bag to be preferable over the combination enema/douche/hot water bottle.
• Colon Tube: A 30 inch tube, size 22FR or 28FR, is required. This 2 inch enema nozzle that usually comes with an enema bag is insufficient for a high enema. These are generally available from a drug store or hospital supply.
• Lubricant: A lubricant is required for the insertion of the colon tube. Any natural lubricant is fine – we recommend coconut oil or olive oil.
Coffee must be prepared using glass, stainless steel or enamel cookware, but never aluminum or Teflon. You can use an electric percolator or simply use a saucepan. Fill the pan with a quart of pure water. Bring water to a boil and immediately turn off the heat. Add the desired amount of ground coffee and steep until cooled to the desired temperature. Strain out the grounds and use.
Use 1-4 tablespoons of coffee to a quart of water. Exactly how much you use on a regular basis with depend on your bio-chemical individuality.
Always use distilled water or water purified through reverse osmosis. Tap water is unacceptable for drinking and for enemas in a healthy lifestyle.
Upon completion of the enema, you should feel a sense of ease and wellbeing. If you experience any jitteriness, lightheadedness, nervousness weakness, etc., you will need to decrease the strength of the coffee solution. Consult your physician if you have any questions regarding this issue.
If you are having regular bowel movements, the enema should be performed preferably following the bowel movement rather than before it. When you do coffee enemas on the regular basis, however, you may not accumulate enough bulk to continue having regular movements. If this is the case, you should not strain to have a normal bowel movement, as this can result in hemorrhoids. The enemas will suffice to sufficiently evacuate the bowel and normal function will return when you discontinue the coffee enemas.
