Coffee Enemas: How to do Them Properly


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.

  1. Arrange an area on the bathroom floor to infuse the coffee solution. Most people lay an old towel atop a throw rug or folded blanket situated on the floor of the bathroom. The coffee is infused when in a supine position, so most people make the floor as comfortable as possible. Some prop pillows against the wall and use the time in comfort for reading or relaxing.

  2. Find a place from which to hang the enema bag. It should not be higher than about 2 feet off the ground (assuming you will lie on the floor). If the bag is too high, the solution will flow with too much force, causing discomfort. Hang it from a suitable location.


  3. Connect the colon tube to the plastic nozzle on the end of the tube that attaches to the enema bag.

  4. Close off the hose leading to the colon tube with the hose clamp provided to prevent the escape of any fluid.

  5. Add the coffee solution to the enema bag. This should be at room temperature or only slightly warmer at the time of usage. Too hot or too cool may cause your colon to contract, resulting in difficulty retaining the fluid.

  6. Open the flow control clamp and allow a little coffee to flow to the end of the tube and out into the sink, toilet, or bathtub, just enough to eliminate any air in the tube.

  7. Lubricate the first several inches of the colon tube. Addition lubrication may be applied to the rectum to aid in the insertion of the colon tube.

  8. Insert the colon tube into the rectum. Most people prefer to accomplish this while lying on their left side. Ideally, the tube should be fully inserted. Everyone’s colon is slightly different and twists and turns uniquely. For some, it is a simple matter to fully insert the tube. For others, it requires patient, gentle effort. Allowing the slow inflow of solution while inserting the tube is often helpful. Also, many find that twisting and turning the tube while gently pushing facilitates its progress. Others suggest that momentarily withdrawing the tube slightly and then proceeding with its insertion can help get around tough corners – the various bends and turns in the colon. Under no circumstances should any force be used. This should all be very easy and gentle. Many people are simply unable to fully insert the tube. That is fine. You should insert the tube as far as your colon with easily allow. It usually takes experiencing several enemas before you become comfortable with the procedure and develop your own, individualized technique.

  9. Open the clamp to allow the coffee solution (1 quart) to flow into the colon. The rate of flow can be regulated with the control apparatus. When the flow is completed, you may remove the tube or leave it inserted. Many prefer to leave the tube inserted as it allows any gas present to escape.

  10. Lie on your left side for 5 minutes, on your back for 5 minutes and on your right side for 5 minutes. During this time, gentle massage the colon, focusing on any hard, lumpy areas.

  11. After the 15 minutes, you may then expel the enema. You should not strain to hold the fluid. If you feel you need to expel before the 15 minutes, you should do so. No straining is necessary and the whole process should be quite effortless.
