Benefits of Coffee Enemas

Coffee enemas are one of the quickest and best ways to detoxify the gallbladder and liver. It was traditionally used to remove parasites and also part of the Gersen cancer protocol. They are an integral part of any detoxification, Lyme, CIRS and mould treatment plan that I prescribe...


What they do:

Coffee enemas are used primarily for liver and gallbladder detoxification, even though the route is through the intestine. Coffee enemas support detox by:

  1. Stimulating the Liver: Coffee enemas helps support the liver to detoxify 

  2. Stimulate Bile Flow: Enhances digestion by increasing bile flow and remove toxins in the large intestine. This is especially an area where mould, biotoxin and Lyme toxins are stored and need to be detoxified.

  3. Cleansing: Coffee acts as an astringent to the bowel wall, helping to clean it, thus improving absorption of essential nutrients. 


 Coffee enemas support liver function by forcing out and diluting bile, dilating blood vessels, reducing inflammation of the intestines, and enhancing Glutathione production, which facilitating the phase 2 liver detoxification pathway. 

What you'll need to do a coffee enema:

  • Gravity fed enema kit

  • On/off valve (not clamp)

  • Filtered water and mycotoxin free coffee beans OR pre-made medium roast coffee solution 

  • Thermometer- to make sure solution is approx 36 degrees Celsius before insertion

  • Coconut oil for lubricant


If making your own solution- Preparing the coffee


  1. Bring 1 litre of filtered water to the boil, in a pot on the stove

  2. When the water is boiling add 3 tablespoons or 1/3 cup of organic medium roasted coffee

  3. Let it boil for 3 minutes with the lid off

  4. Simmer uncovered for 15minutes

  5. Let it cool then strain through cloth lined strainer into a glass sealable jar

  6. Replace water that has boiled away, to restore liquid amount to 1 litre. Using distilled water only.

  7. Store in the fridge


Preparing the enema


  1. Take 250mls of the coffee solution (home made or pre-made) and put into a pot. 

  2. Add 250mls of filtered water to the coffee in the pot.

  3. Warm to body temperature- 36 degrees Celsius.

  4. Add the mixture to the enema bucket/ pouch. Make sure the valve is turned off

  5. Just before inserting the tube run some of the coffee preparation through the tube to the end

  6. Lie down on your right side

  7. Insert the catheter 3 inches into the rectum. Lubricate the end of the enema tube with coconut oil. Place some on the tube and some on your rectum.

  8. Then the valve on and allow the mixture to run in slowly.

  9. Remove the tube when all the mixture is in the rectum. Stay lying on your side.

  10. Stay lying on your right side as long as you can, but max 15-20minutes. Then get up and sit on the toilet until you empty your rectum. 


To clean the kit- 

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most effective natural disinfectants, making it ideal for enema kit cleansing.

Reconnect all the pieces of your enema kit and pour two cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide into the enema bucket or bag. Allow some liquid flow through the tube and the tip before applying the clamp to trap most of the liquid.

Experts suggest that 3% hydrogen peroxide requires 2 1/2 hours to do its disinfecting effectively, so let your bucket/pouch and tube filled with the solution sit for that amount of time. It can also left overnight if easier.

Once it’s disinfected, dispose of the solution into the toilet and rinse the entire kit with water to remove any residual peroxide.

Remove the enema tip from the tubing, and submerge it in a small bowl of hot, nearly boiling water.

Add in a few tablespoons of peroxide and leave to sit in the solution for 8 hours, or overnight. 

As this piece makes contact with your rectum, it’s essential to ensure it’s disinfected.

Rinse when done, and dry thoroughly with a paper towel.

Disconnect the long silicone enema tubing once more and hang dry outside (if possible), out of direct sunlight. The steady outdoor airflow will assist in the drying process. Leave the tube to dry for 8 hours. Although it’s rare, some longer tubing may be trickier to thoroughly dry. If necessary, you can use a hair dryer on a low setting to speed up the process. It's very important to make sure its dried completely to prevent any mould growth from left over moisture.

Once all parts of your kit are completely dry, place and store them in your storage bag.
