Coffee Enemas

Hey, if Oprah and Dr Oz can make talking about poop acceptable, why not move the conversation even further along, so to speak, and talk about coffee enemas, and doing an enema series.  They are safe, cleansing and detoxifying, and really very simple to do.

Here is a basic coffee enema recipe.  If you are using regular coffee, it must be organic and caffeinated, but I highly recommend Bulletproof, as it has been processed to eliminate mold and mycotoxins. (Of course, if you’re going to drink coffee, this is the very best you will find!)

1. Basic Instructions:

In a non-aluminum pot or saucepan pour 2 cups of filtered or distilled water and add 2-3 Tablespoons of organic coffee, finely ground.  Stir, then bring to a boil.  Boil for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from heat, and strain through a fine sieve to remove the coffee grinds. Do not use a paper or cloth filter, as this will also remove some of the therapeutic elements. Add to 4 cups of distilled or filtered water. This should this bring it to the right temperature.

You can buy an enema bag kit very cheaply ($2-$3) at any medical store, and it can be cleaned and reused several times. but it’s plastic, and I don’t recommend that long term.  It’s fine for your first few times, though, and  I sell a “starter set” with the enema bag and a small pouch of coffee for $12.)

Clamp the hose, and pour the strained coffee into the bag. Let a little bit out into the sink or toilet, and then clamp closed again. Prepare some towels or a blanket on the floor, and lie on your right side. (While the many nurses in my practice are familiar with having clients lie on their left side, to empty the colon, the right side is preferred to support the liver.) The enema bag should be about doorknob height. You can use an oil like coconut or olive oil on the tip, or a healing salve.

The key to doing this successfully is to not rush. Insert the tube just a couple of inches, and let about a cup of liquid in, then clamp again. Take a few deep breaths, massage your belly, and repeat, taking your time, until the bag is empty. If you have any cramping or discomfort, slow down and take some nice deep breaths. Then lie there for as long as you can, up to about 15 minutes. Read a book, listen to music, relax. After the time is up, get up and sit on the toilet.

That’s it. You’re done.

It is not unusual to not be able to use the whole amount, or wait the whole time, at first, without leaping up to sit on the toilet, but as you get more accustomed to the process, it will become less intimidating, even easy. You may also need to do a shorter one first, to empty your colon, and then follow with the longer one immediately after.

An enema can generally be used once a week if you are healthy, more often if you are sick, or constipated. As always, check with your health care professional if you have questions or concerns.  If you keep it to under 12 minutes you should not absorb any caffeine systemically, but if you are very sensitive to caffeine, I recommend doing this early in the day.  After you are through, wash your enema set with grapefruit seed extract or Thieves (see below).

2. Enema Series

Once you have got the basics down, you might want to try an enema series for a more comprehensive cleanse.  This is a series of 3, with the first two being water with essential oils, and the last one coffee, as above.

Heat about a quart of water to a comfortable warm temperature.  Add about 10 drops each of 2 or 3 essential oils, such as Purification, Di-Gize, Thieves, Frankincense, or Lavender from Young Living, or Balance from Well Scent.  You can also empty a couple of garlic powder capsules, or use artemesinin or other herbs. For a customized formula, please ask me at your next session.
The first time, use just a little bit of water, and wait just a few minutes before evacuating.  The second time, use the rest of the water and hold it longer, about 10 minutes.  Then you are ready for the coffee version, above.

I will only use Well Scent, or Young Living oils, as they are therapeutic grade, rather than perfume grade, and I have never found any other oils to match their potency, value, safety, and effectiveness.  I wish it weren’t an MLM, but it is, so you can join using my #560698 or, if you are a client, I am happy to add your order to mine at cost. I order once or twice a month.  I also use Thieves disinfecting soap for both my hands and the equipment, before and after each use.

  1. I recently came across the Dr. Oz’s poop episode. Really, everyone should be watching it. I wonder when they’ll cover coffee enemas?


    1. We’re such Puritans in this culture! (Not counting the phase that 4 year old boys go through) I’m glad it is becoming more acceptable to talk about, particularly in the realm of holistic health, because it is so important.

      If anyone has any questions on the subject, please feel free to ask, either here, or privately.


  2. Hi Fran,
    I would like to find out if black tea and/or green tea enemas are good for pain relief. I am finding out that the coffee enemas I am doing now are working very well but I want to switch to tea for the times the pain is not severe. When doing the coffee enemas I use 2 to 3 rounded tablespoons of organic dark roast coffee (because it is more yang) and 8 to 32 ounces of filtered water. I retain coffee for 30 minutes or fully absorb it if taking the 8 ounce concentrated. In the morning my first 1 or 2 cleansing enemas are 2 to 4 quarts filtered water with a 2 teaspoons of sea salt per quart of water and retain for up to 10 min. Please let me know about what you think and if the black and/or green tea is another alternative to the coffee.


  3. Hi Fran,
    I think that coffee enemas are good for just about every illness or disease, pain or lack of energy. If you take coffee enemas everyday for life you will see that you will not get sick and feel better more often. I have been doing them for more than 20 years and feel better than i did before doing them. Coffee enemas should be in everyones medicine cabinet and personal first aid kit.
