For many the coffee enema is undoubtedly the hardest procedure to add to your program. Many clients are squeamish and think the idea of any enema is just gross. At one time I shared your apprehensions but after being educated on the benefits of the procedure and learning more and more about the toxicity of our current environment I realized it was very beneficial in cleansing the body of parasites and toxins and supporting the liver.
Imagine seeing the gutters of your home filled with debris and thinking it was okay to just leave it alone. Unfortunately we cannot see the gunk lining our intestines and colon. We cannot see how clogged the liver is and how all that sludge keeps the liver from doing it’s main job – detoxing the body.
By the time we know we have an issue, we have more than likely been diagnosed with a disease – A disease that may have been avoided IF the liver had been able to detox the body efficiently. I hope you put aside all your fears, feelings of disgust and/or negative thoughts about this procedure and realize the health benefits it brings to the program.
In addition to removing toxins the coffee enema also:
- Cleans and heals the colon
- Detoxifies the liver and colon and helps rebuild the liver.
- Reduce many types of pain.
- Help eliminate many parasites.
- Reduces and gets rid of many symptoms of general toxicity. Since toxicity is the cause of dozens of common symptoms from arthritis to cancer, coffee enemas help with many, if not most diseases and conditions.
- Helps with depression, confusion, and general nervous tension.
- Increases mental clarity, improves energy levels, increases joy and happiness, improves digestion, and reduces anger.
- Enables clients to get through difficult healing and purification reactions.
I am going to share my favorite way to prepare a coffee enema.
- Start with 2 cups of distilled or filtered water. Add 3 tablespoons of coffee to the water. (The Gerson method recommends using 3 tablespoons per enema but I use less). As you will see the method I use makes 2 coffee enemas.
- Use medium to dark roast organic coffee as light roasted coffee is more yin. Coffee crops are heavily sprayed with pesticides so I recommend using only organic coffee.
- Bring the water to a boil and cook for 12 minutes. Do not overcook.
- Add more distilled water to fill make 4 cups. This method allows the coffee to cool quickly so you can use it soon after it is prepared.
- Use two cups of coffee for each enema. If you only plan to do one enema, store the remaining coffee for no more than a day.
- You can do two coffee enemas back to back and if you are having healing reactions, you can do as many as four coffee enemas per day.
I highly recommend using the single near infrared heat lamp while doing the coffee enema. Shine the lamp over the abdominal region about 12 to 24 inches away from your body while retaining the coffee enema. This will help you relax and the lamp is great therapy for detoxing the body and aids in supporting the liver.
You may also try doing the while retaining the coffee enema. This can be a great way to incorporate several procedures into your lifestyle while making effective use of your time.
I have found that enema supplies usually need to be purchased on line. The Gerson link below has plastic buckets at reasonable prices. They sell coffee too. You can purchase the coffee from them or buy an organic brand at the store. A full line of stainless steel buckets can be purchased from Amazon.
Here are some tips to help you as you begin the coffee enemas:
- Do not place the bucket too high as the coffee will flow too quickly making it hard to retain. If the bucket is too low, the coffee won’t flow. Place the bucket about 2 1/2 feet above your body for ideal flow.
- Make sure the tube is fastened securely to the bucket so it does not drip or spill.
- The coffee should be around body temperature. If it is too hot or too cold, it will be hard to retain.
- Insert the tube about 3 inches into the rectum so the coffee can enter the body and not spill on the floor. Use lubricant if needed to insert the tube. Coconut oil or olive oil work well as lubricant.
- Deep breathe and relax as it is hard to hold the coffee if you are tense.
- Trouble holding the enema is usually a sign of intestinal gas. Before doing the enema, try expelling gas by bending at the waist and putting light pressure on the stomach. Also leaving the enema tip inside you with the clamp open will allow any extra gas to escape back into the bucket. Again, make sure the bucket is higher than their body or this will not work.
- You may place a small pillow or rolled up towel under the buttocks so the pelvic is tipped. This allows the water to flow downwards into the colon.
- You may rub the lower left side of the abdominal region in an upward motion to move the water towards the colon. This also helps alleviate cramping which may occur as the body moves bile, feces and toxins out of the liver and small intestines. Deep breathing is also good for cramping and increases relaxation.
- If retention is a consistent problem, try using less water and/or less coffee. After you acclimate to the process, you can increase the water and coffee to the recommended amount.
- Doing reflexology after a coffee enema can be very effective especially if you have any pain or discomfort in the abdominal region. Focus on the colon reflex areas of the feet as well as the tops of the toes on the left foot.
- If the anal area is irritated, try using more lubricant. If that doesn’t work try adding one or two tablespoons of aloe vera juice to the coffee liquid. (You may want to check with your practitioner before doing this).
- If you are discover you are coffee intolerant, try reducing the coffee added to the enema. Start with a pinch of coffee and work up slowly to the recommended amount, if possible.
- You may do just water enemas to start if you are highly sensitive to even a little caffeine in the coffee. Also if you find you are extremely gassy, do a quick water enema before the coffee enema as this can be very helpful.
- Ideally retain the enema for 10 to 15 minutes or even up to an hour when you have time.
Emptying the coffee. When you are ready to expel the coffee, go to the toilet and empty out the coffee solution. Some water may remain inside which usually means you are somewhat dehydrated. Please make sure you are drinking enough water.
If you are drinking enough water and this continues to be an issue, you may want to switch to a different brand of water. However, it is fine if no coffee comes out and no cause for worry.
A bidet toilet attachment cleans the bottom very quickly. If you don’t have this device, make sure to clean your body carefully.
Washing out the enema equipment. Wash the tube, the bag or bucket, and the tip thoroughly with soap and water, and hang them up to dry. It is not necessary to sterilize them.
