YOU WILL NEED:
AN ENEMA CONTAINER - 2 quart
enema bag, plastic or stainless steel bucket with a clamp. The
enema bags kits are sold at drug stores. This one with a stainless steel
bucket is recommended. You can search Amazon for less expensive enema kits also.
Buy "Optimal Health Coffee for Enemas". This one is
formulated just for coffee enemas. Buy online or on Amazon.
Store opened coffee containers in the freezer for
PREPARATION OF INGREDIENTS
Two methods are available and the first is best.
BOILING METHOD -
Place 2 to 3 cups of purified water and two to
three tablespoons of coffee in a saucepan and bring to a boil (or
use a coffee maker). Let it boil 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow
it to cool. One or two ice cubes may be added to speed the cooling process.
You may make a larger quantity and use it for several enemas. Wait until the
water is comfortable to the touch. If the water is too hot
or too cold, retaining the enema will be more difficult. Strain the liquid
through a fine strainer or coffee filter paper into a clean enema bag.
Screw on the top of the enema bag. The enema is now ready.
- Place 1 cup of ground coffee in a container with 2 cups of
water. Stir the mixture thoroughly and allow it to soak overnight. (You may
make a larger quantity if desired). In the morning, filter the liquid
through coffee filter paper or a fine strainer. Place in a jar for storage
in the refrigerator. To prepare an enema, pour 2 cups of purified water into
the enema bag. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the coffee liquid from the jar.
PREPARE CONTAINER HOSES
- Be sure the plastic hose is pushed or fastened well onto the enema bag and
the thin enema tip is attached to the other end
REMOVE AIR - Remove any air from the
enema tube the following way. Grasp but do not close the clamp on the
hose. Place the tip in the sink. Hold up the enema bag above the tip until
the water begins to flow out. Then close the clamp. This expels any air in
Lubricate the enema tip with a small amount of coconut oil (Note: too much lubrication will cause the tip to fall out of the
rectum, creating a mess!).
TAKING THE ENEMA
POSITION - The
position preferred by most people is lying on one's back on a towel, on the
bathroom floor or in the bath tub on the right side. An alternative is sitting on the toilet,
which does not give as much gravity feed.
PLACE CONTAINER ABOVE -
With the clamp closed, hang the bag about one foot above your abdomen.
INSERT - Insert
the tip gently and slowly. Move it around until it goes all the way in.
OPEN FLOW - Open
the clamp and hold the enema bag about one foot above the abdomen. The water
may take a few seconds to begin flowing. If the water does not flow, you may
gently squeeze the bag. If you develop a cramp, close the hose clamp, turn
from side to side and take a few deep breaths. The cramp will usually pass
WHEN FULL - When
all the liquid is inside, the bag will become flat or the container will be
empty. Close the clamp. You can leave the tube inserted, or remove it
RETAIN THE ENEMA FOR A MINIMUM OF 15 MINUTES -
See below if you have difficulties with this. You may remain lying on the
floor. Use the time to read a book, meditate, etc. Some people are able to
get up and go lie on a towel in bed, instead of on the floor. Walking
around the house with the coffee inside is not recommended.
After 15 minutes or so, go to the toilet and empty out the
water. It is okay if some water remains inside. If water remains inside often,
you are dehydrated.
AFTER BOWEL MOVEMENT
- If possible, do the enema after a bowel movement to make it easier to
retain the coffee. If this is not possible, take a plain water enema first
if needed, to clean out the colon.
DEALING WITH GAS -
If intestinal gas is a problem, some exercise before the enema may eliminate
FILLING UP - It
is not essential but is helpful if the water fills the entire colon. You can
assist by first lying on your right side for 5 minutes, then on your back
for 5 minutes, and then on your left side for 5 minutes.
MASSAGE - If water
will not flow around the entire colon, you may gently massage your abdomen.
LONGER TUBE - Some
people attach a 30-inch colon tube to the tip of the enema tube, and insert
the tube so the water will reach the right side of the colon.
REDUCE AMOUNT OF COFFEE
- If the enema makes you jittery, reduce the amount of
EAT SOMETHING BEFORE
- The enema may lower your blood sugar. If so, eat something
just before or after taking the enema.
PATIENCE - Be patient as practice makes
TEMPERATURE - The
water may be too hot or too cold.
Be sure the water temperature is
STAY COMFORTABLE -
It may help to place a small pillow or rolled up towel under your buttocks
so the water flows down hill into your colon.
ADDING MOLASSES -
If trouble continues, try reducing the amount of coffee or add 2 tablespoons
of blackstrap molasses to the water.
