Coffee Enemas Cover

Detoxify Your Body with Coffee Enemas:

A common saying in natural health is that “Death begins in the colon.”  Enemas have been a key tool to cleanse the colon by many cultures all around the world throughout history.  Organic coffee bean was originally cultivated and used as a powerful liver cleanser by native American tribes.    There are many incredible health benefits of doing coffee enemas.

The ancient Egyptians, Hindus, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Sumerians have all used colon cleansing techniques such as enemas to improve their health.  The ancient dead sea scrolls which are said to have been written during Jesus day detail the importance of regular enemas for good health as well.

In the US, up until the 20th Century, enemas were known to be one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle.  The famed Dr Kellogg reported to the Journal of American Medicine in 1917 that in over 40,000 cases of individuals with gastrointestinal disease he had seen remarkable results using a regimen of diet, exercises and enemas.

Digestive Health in the 21st Century:

Life in the 21st century is extremely challenging to our liver and colon.  We are inundated with chlorinated and fluoridated water, chemicals everywhere and anti-biotics in everything.   Processed foods have very slow transit time and they very often will stick to the sides of the gut and become encased in a mucoid plaque creating toxic ridges in the colon.

These ridges are incredibly tough to remove and they limit the amount of feces moving through the bowel and provide an optimal environment for parasites to thrive.

When food sits in the colon, it rots and putrefies and releases toxins into the bloodstream that make their way to the liver.  The liver does its best to cleanse and purify the bloodstream, but when the gut continues to release toxins it creates an excessive burden on the body.  This eventually leads to a state of disease as the body is accumulating more toxins than it can remove.

The Benefit of Colon Therapies and Enemas:

Colon therapies and enemas help to remove the toxic mucoid plaque around the colon walls and the elimination of parasites in the gut.  They also facilitate better gut motility and frequency of healthy bowel movements.

Coffee enemas give an added benefit over typical water based colonic therapies by stimulating the liver to produce greater amounts of glutathione.  Glutathione is the bodies master anti-oxidant and helps protect the intracellular DNA and eliminate toxins from within the cells (1, 2, 3).

Glutathione and Your Digestive System:

Studies have found that green coffee bean increased glutathione production in the liver by 600% and by 700% in the small intestine.  The enema is the most potent way to gain these powerful effects because the enzymes of the digestive tract do not interact with the nutrients before they reach the liver (4, 5).

Coffee enemas are known to help individuals with gallstones, liver problems, digestive problems, low energy, auto-immune diseases and cancer.  They are used in almost every natural health retreat center around the world for their remarkable ability to cleanse and detoxify in a short period of time.


The Coffee Enema Protocol:

Individuals with chronic disease often do up to four coffee enemas a day, while those who want to live a healthy lifestyle are encouraged to at least do this weekly to reset the colon and filter out any toxic debris that has been stagnant over the course of the week.

Be sure to use organic coffee and boil with pure water (not tap water) for 15 minutes and let cool.  The proper ratio is 3 tablespoons of organic coffee to 4 cups of water.  Then pour it into an enema kit and bring to the bathroom.

Lie on your right side with your knees curled up and insert the nozzle about 2 inches inside the rectum and let the water begin to flow.


Additional Recommendations:

Once all the water enters you can move around and do some yoga poses if you like.  This helps move the coffee around and facilitates better detoxification.  Try to keep the fluid in for 12-15 minutes.  This will be challenging and you will have some major urges to let it out faster.

If coffee cannot be tolerated due to allergy than once could use a diluted raw, apple cider vinegar or green juice enema.  You could also try an organic tea such as green tea or an assorted blend of organic herbs that the individual is able to tolerate.

  1. Did my first coffee enema last Monday and again on Wednesday. By Thursday I had a terrible yeast infection. Have you heard of this and what are your thoughts?

    1. Hey Josey, if this is continually happening than yes, it could be a serious issue. Is this happening when you have normal stools or is it happening only when you do enemas?

  2. Hello Dr. Jockers, thank you for this article. I have a couple of questions, could you please answer them for me? I apologize this comment is so long 🙂
    1.I have been doing coffee enemas for several months now about 5 times a week. I think I am ‘addicted’ to them now. Is there such a thing? I feel so good afterwards, that I am looking forward to doing them in the morning. How often should a healthy person do the enemas?
    2.I am using the Gold roast, but it’s quite expensive. Will medium roast I usually drink, be good as well? Or, if I mix 50:50 gold and medium? What are your thoughts on this?
    3.Even though I have been doing enemas for several months now, I still find it diffucult to keep the coffee in for more than 5-6 minutes (I usually have my regular bm, and then do the enema). So after researching this further, the last two times I added 1 Tablespoon of organic molasses, 1 teaspoon of sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon of magnesium powder to my enema. It really worked, and I stayed on my right side for 20-25 minutes without any problems. But what concerns me, is that I didn’t feel any urges to go at all. It felt like the whole 1 liter of coffee just got absorbed and never made it out of me (except of probably 1/2-1 cup or so). What was happening? Is it dangerous? I will try again and see what will happen, but I think this is not normal. Should I stop adding molasses, salt and magnesium? Thank you

    1. Hey Lana, for a healthy person I think once a week would be a good frequency! You do not have to use the gold roast, but if you use a regular coffee make sure the beans are lab-tested for mold such as this one:

      I have not heard about the molasses and magnesium combo!
