Coffee enemas have been around for centuries.

They have been routinely used for medical purposes since the 1800s.Coffee Enema 1

A coffee solution that is delivered through the rectum has very different results to drinking a cup of coffee. So no luck, you can’t get away with simply ordering an extra cappuccino!

You might be surprised to learn of the diverse coffee enema benefits that have been widely reported.

These benefits include:

  • Removal of toxins from the body
  • Cleansing and healing the colon
  • Detoxifying the colon
  • Detoxifying and healing the liver
  • Reduction of many types of pain
  • Elimination of parasites
  • Reduction of symptoms associated with most diseases and conditions
  • Reduction in depression, anxiety, confusion, and nervous tension
  • Improvement in mental clarity
  • Increased energy and happiness, with a decrease in anger
  • Improved digestion
  • Assists in dealing with challenging healing and purification reactions

In order to get the most of these coffee enema benefits, you need to choose the best type of coffee. If you think you can get away with cheap instant coffee, think again. Coffee enema instructions start with selecting the coffee that proves most beneficial when used as an enema. Ideally you should opt for a medium or dark roast coffee from South America. It should be organic, non-oily, and less moldy. And the coffee enema weight loss theory is no myth: a dark roast coffee is linked to a significant reduction in body weight.Coffee Enema 2

If you want to learn how to do a coffee enema then you need to invest in the appropriate equipment. An enema bucket is preferable to enema bags because it can be cleaned thoroughly. A stainless steel bucket is best because it is less likely to retain bacteria. You will also need a soft rubber colon tube with an enema tip.

Fortunately, there are ways in which you can administer a coffee enema without feeling too uncomfortable – and without having to deal with too much mess. So how to do a coffee enema easily and comfortably?

Simply follow the coffee enema instructions below…

  1. It is preferable to have a bowel movement before having an enema. If this is not possible, try doing one plain tap water enema using just one cup slightly warm water.
  2. The next step is to prepare your coffee. Pour one to two cups of spring or filtered water into a saucepan. Add one half to two tablespoons of coffee and bring it to the boil. If you are new to this method, start with half a tablespoon. Once you can tolerate this amount, gradually increase it until you are using two tablespoons of coffee.
  3. Allow the water and coffee to come to the boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer for 12 minutes. Set the coffee aside to cool slightly. Test the temperature by dipping your finger into the coffee. When it is comfortably warm (not too hot and not too cold) then it is ready for use as an enema.Coffee Enema 3
  4. Now it’s time to set up your enema equipment. One end of the hose must be attached to your bucket. The enema tip is placed on the other end of the hose. Remove the coffee grounds (you can easily pour it through cheesecloth) from the coffee and slowly pour the liquid into your bucket.
  5. It is very important that you expel any air from the enema tube. Grasp the clamp without closing it. Place the tip into a sink or bath. Lift up the bucket until coffee starts pouring out the tube. Quickly close the clamp.
  6. When doing a coffee enema it is best to lie on your back with your hips raised. Ideally your hips should be elevated slightly higher that your head. Use pillows or blankets to support the hips being stable and comfortable.
  7. You can position yourself with your elbows on the floor with your hind end upward toward the ceiling.  This forces the fluid up into the colon and is also a good position.
  8. Place a small amount of lubricant on the enema tip. Experiment to see which type of lubricant works best for you. Suitable options include petroleum jelly, Vaseline, coconut oil, olive oil, soap, shaving cream or lip balm. Take a deep breath and relax. Slowly and gently insert the enema tip, twisting it slightly to ease the insertion. The enema tip must go all the way in (at least two inches).
  9. Place or hold the bucket one to three feet above your abdomen. Open the clamp and allow the coffee to flow in. Once all the coffee has flowed in, close the clamp. You can choose to either leave the tube as it is or slowly remove it.  I have found it is easiest to have a table (if using a bucket) right next to you to sit the bucket on.  It is too cumbersome for me to try and hold it 3 feet above and relax completely.
  10. Turn onto your right side for two minutes, and then return to lying on your back. Try to hold the enema inside you for 10 to 15 minutes. During this time you can meditate, practice deep breathing, etc.
  11. Go to the toilet and empty out the coffee. Clean all your enema equipment thoroughly.


If you are not a coffee or caffeine drinker you may experience heart palpitations, gripping or cramping in your colon, at first.  If this is the case for you, reduce the amount of coffee you are using until you find comfort and still some significant movement.

I would definitely start with a small amount of coffee (up to ½ tablespoon) see how you respond and the then increase.  Remember that the caffeine is still absorbed into your body as if you were drinking it.

Coffee Enema 4I would also NOT do an enema past about 2 or 3 in the afternoon unless your body is used to a lot of caffeine.  It will act as a stimulant and could keep you awake at night.

Most people benefit from doing one enemas on a daily basis.  Some people will take up to four, although that is not something I would recommend for any length of time.

If you are doing four, then the best option is to do two enemas back to back in the morning and again in the afternoon. Remember that if you are just beginning with coffee cleanses, use no more than four tablespoons of coffee a day. You can increase the amount with time as you test your tolerance.

So there you have it: drinking coffee is not the best way to kickstart your day. Rather try a coffee enema to kickstart a healthier life.
