Do you know that a coffee enema is a world-class pain reliever and detoxifier? In this last, almost unbearable, three weeks, coffee enemas have been my saving grace. After surgery my body was flooded with anesthesia and pain medication. Drug sensitive, I needed another pain relief solution. Although nothing cleans the colon as thoroughly as a professional colonic, a coffee enema is free; and you can do one in the privacy of your own home.
I am often asked, “How exactly do you do a coffee enema?” Therefore, I want to dedicate this blog to the easy, step-by-step process that will quickly lift your mood, reduce inflammation, and rid your body of toxins. Colon cleansing is the gateway to liver detox. It is a most expedient way to flush medications or allergens, and reduce uncomfortable side effects. These poisons may be trapped in your cells for months and even years, destroying your immunity and frizzing your nervous system.
Make My Coffee Enema Black or Green, Please!
You will need the following for your coffee enema:
- Black roasted, or organic coffee or green, unroasted coffee
- Enema bag or water bucket made for enemas; you can also buy a “colema board” — made for home use
- Baby ear syringe (for electrolyte implant following your enema)
- Towels for the floor or Blue Pads (like puppy pee pads) available at the drug store
- Electrolytes and probiotics
- Option: wheat grass for implant following your enema
- Essential oils, such as roman chamomile, or Liquid Trace Minerals
In a pinch, you can use freshly-brewed organic coffee from a coffee maker for your enema, but it is not optimal as it is highly acidic. Acid is one of the things we are trying to reduce in our bodies. Dr. Max Gerson, founder of the famed Gerson Clinic and the father of coffee enemas, recommends using organic, green (unroasted), due to its low acid and high caffeine levels, boiled and strained. It is available online. You can also use regular, ground organic coffee, boiled for five to seven minutes (removes the acid), known as Cowboy Coffee. Whatever you choose, use about two heaping tablespoons of coffee per quart of water.
Turn Your Bathroom into a Home Spa!
The first time you do a coffee enema, plan forty-five minutes to an hour of uninterrupted time so you do not feel rushed. After you have done a few, you will discover the whole process only takes about 30 minutes.
- Put a towel on the floor, and grab a pillow for your head. Turn on some music or listen to a book on tape. Get comfy; make sure the room is warm and cozy. Some people even light some aromatic candles.
- Pour the strained, room temperature coffee into your enema bag or bucket. Use one to two quarts per bag.
- Tighten the clip on the hose so that the liquid doesn’t run out of the bag or bucket, and hang it 18-24 inches above you. You can hang it on the bathroom or shower door if that’s convenient. Make sure it is not hung three to four feet above your head! Gravity will force the liquid into your body too quickly, which is painful and not good for your colon.
- Lie on your back, head on a pillow. Put coconut oil or non-petroleum jelly on the small tube that goes into your rectum–be generous! Then gently insert tube, remembering to breathe. Unclip, and let the strained coffee flow into your colon.
- Massage your colon and take deep breaths, allowing the liquid to bag or bucket to slowly empty into your body. If possible, retain coffee solution for five-ten minutes. If you are caffeine sensitive, as many of my clients are, retain the coffee for just one to two minutes. You will still receive all the benefits without suffering from post-coffee-enema jitters.
- When you feel a cramp, get up and use the toilet, and let your body flush. It may take a few minutes for your colon to release, so be patient.
- Now you are going to flush your colon THREE times with pure, warm water, to which you may decide to add 1/4 teaspoon of trace minerals or a few drops of chamomile oil. These water flushes are VERY IMPORTANT! If you skip this step, your liver will not have an opportunity to completely dump, and you will retain too much caffeine in your system.
- You may choose to add two-four ounces of wheat grass to the water in your last bag. This is extremely nourishing for the nervous system, and alkalizing as well.
- You did it! To complete, create an electrolyte implant of two-four ounces of water with one packet or tablet of a sugar-free electrolyte. Use your baby ear syringe to implant this mixture into your rectum.
As I continue my journey of recovering from surgery using natural pain relief and immune support, I will share what I learn with you! I am super excited to tell you that BOTH my books are now available on my website in audio form, and will soon be available on ITunes and Amazon Audible. Enjoy! After a successful run of the audio version of my first book, Dare to Detoxify! I was convinced by my clients to record my new book, It Takes Guts To Be Happy! They love listening as well as reading. I hope you do, too!
