 Coffee for Enemas


diagram of the gallbladder and duodenum with bile ducts

Because of our life styles, a great deal of stress is placed upon the liver. The liver has a huge chore in filtering toxins and metabolic waste from our bodies. This can be especially true with cancer patients on chemotherapy.  A coffee enema increases liver filtering, greatly aiding the liverís ability to remove toxins that literally poison our bodies.

While colonics are beneficial they do not serve the same purpose as the coffee enema. Colonics are used to cleanse the bowel. Coffee enemas are used to increase the liverís detoxification capacity. Certain substances in the coffee stimulate an important detoxification enzyme in the liver as well as dilate the bile ducts and increase the flow of bile.
A secondary benefit of the coffee enema is to increase peristalsis which helps to empty the bowel.

Coffee enemas work to help move bile from the liver and gallbladder, into the colon by relaxing the bile ducts that connect the gallbladder to the duodenum. Coffee stimulates the liver to make more bile. Bile, from the gallbladder draws out environmental and metabolic toxins, as well as very irritating toxins like candida albicans and other parasite-like organisms. The colon is the organ responsible for carrying away these toxins. As coffee enemas stimulate the liver to produce enzymes that clean the blood, it follows that coffee enemas also assist the colon to develop better function. In these ways, a coffee enema is a good resource in a colon cleansing program.
  It is the liver and small bowel which neutralize the most common tissue toxins: polyamines, ammonia, toxic-bound nitrogen, and electrophiles. This detoxification system is enhanced by the coffee enema.  Physiological chemistry and physics have stated that "caffeine enemas cause dilation of bile ducts, which facilitates excretion of toxic products by the liver and dialysis of toxic products across the colon wall."

In addition, theophylline and theobromine (two other chemicals in coffee) dilate blood vessels and help reduce inflammation of the colon; the palmitates enhance the enzyme system responsible for the removal of toxic free radicals from the serum; along with the fluid of the enema then stimulates the visceral nervous system to promote peristalsis and the transit of diluted toxic bile from the duodenum and out the rectum.

Since this enema is generally held for 15 minutes, and all the blood in the body passes through the liver every three minutes, "these enemas represent a form of dialysis of blood through the colon wall"

   The coffee enema should consist usually of 1 quart of coffee & warm water solution, held for 15 to 30 minutes. Some people, children especially, can take and retain only a pint (2 cups) of coffee enema solution at a time. If this is the case, one should take 2 coffee enemas, one right after releasing the first enema, and hold each for 15 to 30 minutes. Some people believe that you only need 8 to 16 oz. of coffee solution for this process.  Either one will work.

 In a 2 qt. Glass Pot: Place 4 cups of filtered or distilled water
ľ to Ĺ cup of ground organic coffee
  s.a.Wilsons Therapy Blend enema coffee

 Stir in the coffee to make sure all is mixed in the water, then: bring to a boil and boil for 3 to 5 minutes (while stirring occasionally) Reduce heat and cover pot or saucepan with lid and let simmer for 10 to 12 minutes Remove from stove and let solution cool down to room temperature Strain coffee through fine sieve to remove as many coffee grinds as possible. Because of the boiling process, some of the water evaporated, so add plain filtered or distilled water to the coffee to bring it up to 4 full cups (1quart). Store the coffee in a sealed container and keep refrigerated. The coffee enema can stay good for 4 to 5 days when refrigerated and should be used within that time for optimum benefits.

Coffee Enema Set Up:
In a large measuring container (at least 1 quart): Pour 1 cup of the concentrated organic coffee from the container in the fridge Add 3 cups of filtered or distilled water to make 4 cups total  (1quart).

Enema Recipe

(1 cup coffee) (Brewed organic coffee)  This makes a strong solution you can reduce the amount of brewed coffee for a weaker solution. You can use more coffee if you can tolerate it.  Each individual's tolerance will vary.
 s.a.Wilsons Therapy Blend enema coffee
(3 cups) warm filtered water.
103ļ Fahrenheit


Add solution to enema bag, mixing with warm  filtered water to achieve the desired amount.
Hang enema bag about 24 in. above rectum. A good tool for this is the  IV Stand for Enemas
If you need better flow control of the enema solution.  The ramp clamp is a good option.

The Knee-chest position with chest against floor and rectum higher than head this is a best position to receive an enema.
Insert  nozzle/rectal tube into the rectal opening, always use lubricant when the inserting anything into the rectal opening [anus]( Super Salve  Surgilube  Vaseline 13oz.
  Personal Lubricating Jelly  Astroglide Personal Lubricant  K-Y Jelly Personal Lubricant).

Inject solution slowly, approximately one  cup per minute (8oz.) and take as much as possible.
When the desired amount has been achieved remove nozzle/rectal tube.
Lie in position for several minutes while the massaging abdomen. Hold the coffee enema for 15 to 30 minutes.
If you cannot hold the coffee solution for the entire 15 to 30 minutes just move to the toilet and release.
After you have released the solution try lessening the amount of coffee solution in the water and repeat the enema again.

When you have held the enema for the required time move to the toilet and release the enema.

Massaging the abdomen while expelling the enema helps move contents toward the rectum.

The best position for expelling your enema is squatting over the toilet. The squatting position puts pressure on your abdomen from your thighs.
In many countries, toilets are made so that people squat when they move their bowels. The Welles Step positions your body so that you are squatting when you sit on the toilet. Squatting,  supports the abdominal wall and the bowel as we bear down, brings about an easier bowel evacuation.
People who use the squatting position tend to have fewer hemorrhoids, hernias, anal fissures, varicose veins and use less laxatives.

I have to add here, that there is much controversy over the benefit of coffee enemas.  To me the simple science of it and what little research has been done, points to greater liver productivity under coffee stimulation.  The question I would have to ask is:  What do you have to lose? 

Naturally consultation with your health care provider is an absolute before making any changes to your regimen. 


Peristalsis is a radially symmetrical contraction and relaxation of muscles which propagates in a wave down the muscular tube, in an anterograde fashion. In humans, peristalsis is found in the contraction of smooth muscles to propel contents through the digestive tract.  The motion is much as an earthworm travels.


Kahweol and cafestol palmitate:  promote the activity of a key enzyme system, glutathione S-transferase, above the norm. This system detoxifies a vast array of electrophiles from the bloodstream and, according to Gar Hildenbrand of the Gerson Institute, "must be regarded as an important mechanism for carcinogen detoxification." This enzyme group is responsible for neutralizing free radicals, the harmful chemicals now commonly implicated in the initiation of cancer


Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that grows both as yeast and filamentous cells and a causal agent ofopportunistic oral and genital infections in humans. Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) including those by C. albicans have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality inimmunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancerchemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantation).C. albicans biofilms may form on the surface of implantable medical devices. In addition, hospital-acquired infections by C. albicans have become a cause of major health concerns.
