I can already tell what you are thinking……I’ve lost the plot!!!!! But there is method to this madness and it’s all about quick detoxification and elimination which will provide your body with heaps of  benefits as well as dramatically improving the health of your liver. So, really you don’t have anything to loose and you don’t know how good you’ll feel until you give it a try!

Here are 10 Reasons on Why You Should Try A Coffee Enema:

  1. Quickly and painless removes toxins from your body.
  2. Cleans and heals the colon, through removing built up debris, fecal mass and impurities from the colon wall, which in turn improves peristalsis and bowel motions.
  3. Revitalizes the body, increases energy levels and improves mental clarity and mood.
  4. Highly useful for moods through the regulation of hormones through improved liver health.
  5. Helps eliminate parasites and candida.
  6. Improves digestion, supports the gall bladder and bile flow, eases bloating and indigestion.
  7. Stimulates the liver to product Glutathione a potent anti-oxidant and immune boosting amino acid.

And 1 more bonus – completely clears up skin blemishes, rashes and acne, through redirecting toxins out of the bowel, lessening the toxins being removed via the skin which clogs pores and irritates the skin.

But the Main Reason we really love Coffee Enemas so much…….


When you kick start your liver back into action and cleanse the colon, your metabolism improves dramatically! This weekly therapy is an amazing supportive action for any weight loss program, if you want to see quick weight loss results with less dieting effort! Having an active, fully functioning liver is the key to metabolizing fat effectively, don’t attempt ANY  diet program if it does not address liver health!

GETTING STARTED……So what do I need?

I recommend the  Travel Enema Kit

This Travel Enema Kit is ideal for your home enema or when you need an enema while travelling. The Fountain style enema has a 2 ltr bag and can be folded away when not in use. I love it because it folds up quite small for easy storage AND they handle makes it much easier for hanging somewhere in order to elevate it as opposed to the enema buckets you may have also seen.

The benefits of this kit are:nl-enema-bag-set

  • Easy to handle, great for travelling, folds away.
  • Holds up to 2 litres.
  • Gravity fed system.
  • On/Off valve (not clamp).
  • Easy to clean.
  • Contains everything you need to do an enema.
  • Durable strong plastic.
  • Will last for years with proper care.

Extra Tips to help you with the process

  • Start with a smaller amount of liquid until you get used to the process ie 600ml and work your way up to the full litre.
  • Its normal to experience mild cramps or feelings of movement while retaining the coffee, these will always pass
  • If you have the liquid to warm its harder to retain for the full 15 minutes, if you have the liquid to cold it’s harder to retain for the full 15 minutes, body temperature or luke warm is best.
  • Always flush a small amount of the liquid out before you insert the tube rectally, this will prevent air bubbles and help create a smoother flow of liquid.
  • For first timers do your enema in the bath or on a tiled floor with some old towels, in case accidents happen, much easier to clean.
  • Always replenish yourself after an enema with a freshly squeezed juice, coconut water or some natural electrolytes to keep you hydrated.

The most important thing to remember is that your Enema coffee MUST be organic!

Ok, so how do I do it?

First off you will need to purchase an enema kit, (Click here to View)  I prefer the traveller’s enema kit as it’s easy to store, easy to transport but you can get a more robust bucket if you’re into that kind of thing. The great thing is they are reusable, so super cost effective,  just as long as you wash it out after each use, get yourself some food grade hydrogen peroxide and put a few drops through after each use and wash it out straight away. Coffee is a great one for growing mold, so don’t leave your ‘dirty’ enema kit lying around for days before you give it a good rinse.

Purchase some premium ground ORGANIC coffee beans and keep them in the fridge or freezer until you need to use the coffee. You can use whole beans if you are happy to grind them yourself, but don’t use the whole beans, it won’t have the same effect. The organic part is non-negotiable, as I mentioned earlier – coffee grows lots of mold, really easily, so if you ain’t buying organic I can assure you its been heavily sprayed with all sorts of chemicals.

Ideally do your coffee enema after a bowel movement, so you can retain the coffee for longer. Doing the enema after a motion also prevents your bowel from becoming lazy or dependent upon the enemas for movement.  So mornings are best for most people. If you are constipated, you can do a plain filtered water enemas first, this will get things moving nicely, once you empty your bowel you can do the coffee enema. Your bowel isn’t going to become reliant on enemas in just a short period of time, so don’t stress,  in ancient medicine it is believed that letting the sun set on a day without a bowel movement is one of the most damaging things to ones health!

Now Create your Enema Haven

I like to lay some pillows (covered in towels) on the bathroom toilet, nearby the toilet. The aim is to retain your enema for 15 minutes – so get comfy, bring your book, music of phone with social media access and sit back and relax.

Setting up the Enema Kit 

The really handy travel enema kit has a hook, so its great to attack it above ground, hang it from a drawer or shower handle or towel rack.

There will an attachment near the nozzle that allows you to stop or start the flow of coffee once you have poured it into the bag or bucket. Ensure this is in the off position before pouring the coffee into the bag!

Once the coffee is in the bag or bucket hold tube and nozzle over sink or shower plug and turn it on and allow the coffee to run through the tube until there are no air bubbles. Stop the flow again once this is done.

Grab some coconut oil and apply to the nozzle for ease of insertion. Lie down on your towel on your right hand side with your knees drawn up.

Insert the nozzle till it’s about 1 inch inside the rectum. Turn on the flow of coffee slowly until the bag or bucket is emptied.

Lay however is comfortable, you may experience some cramps during the process – this is totally normal, its the natural peristalsis action of your bowel, wanting to eliminate the liquid from your body. Just relax and breathe through these little contractions, they will ease in about 5-10 seconds.  You will more than likely feel some strong urges to go to the toilet, especially the first few times you try this. Try to hold on for as long as you can, quite often the sensations pass. As you do them more regularly you will be able to retain for longer. 15 minutes max is all you need. Once you have held for 15 minutes, or as close to that as you could manage simple get up and sit on the toilet and release.

Standard Dose – 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground coffee

Added to 1 litre of filtered water

Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat after 15 minutes and let it cool.  Allow it to cool to room temperature, if its too hot, you won’t be able to retain the enema, if its too cold, you won’t be able to retain the enema. I often add extra cold water or ice cubes to bring the total volume back up to 1 litre.

How often should I do an Enema?

Coffee enemas are very safe and are sometimes taken up to 6 times a day in chronically ill patients.  But in general to support detoxification and whole body wellness, I recommend 2-3 per week, provided you are drinking plenty of water and re-hydrating with coconut water and have lots of pre and probiotics in your diet. If you are new to this and the process seems over-whelming, once per week is fine, the more the better if you are following them up properly.

Helpful tips for Beginners 

Start with half the dose of the coffee and amount of water, its a good idea to get your head around the process first and kinda train your bowel a little first by getting a few ‘smaller’ enemas under your belt before you do the full dosage  ie 1 tablespoon of coffee and 500ml of water, some people even start with less, which is fine, choose what feels most comfortable for you.

If you find it painful to insert the small tip (smaller then your pinky finger) then you are simply not following the natural contour of your bowel and hence trying to shove the nozzle into your bowel wall which of course is uncomfortable. So gently guide it in, maneuvering the nozzle until it feels ‘open’ or free.

Post Coffee enema, its important to replenish your body by drinking lots of water, most find it really beneficial to drink some coconut water, kombucha or make a freshly squeezed juice to replace any minerals you lose through the process. I

If you do find you feel a bit ‘jittery’ or queasy after your first couple, sit down and relax, have a calming herbal tea (chamomile, lemon balm) or take some magnesium, it is a normal rush and it does stop after you’ve done a few enemas.

Yes it is true, if you do them super regularly you may want to put back in the good bacteria, but either taking a Probiotic Supplement  or doing a probiotic implant.  This involves making approx 100ml of water and your probiotic powder or liquid and putting this into the bowel via your enema kit or a syringe and retaining it for the rest of the day, or until your next bowel motion.


If you suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, I recommend you do an anti-inflammatory enema a few days in a row before you head straight for the coffee.

Examples of this include: Aloe vera juice, organic Chamomile tea, you can even dissolve probiotics or use a probiotic drink, however if you are adding goodness such as probiotics/prebiotics, you may want to just use 150-250ml of liquid and actually try and retain this, don’t expel it.

If using Aloe vera, aim for 1 cup of aloe vera juice and dilute it with another cup of purified watershutterstock_139839748

Use 2 tablespoons of chamomile flowers, boil in 1 litre of water for 5 minutes, allow to cool, strain and remove

the flowers and insert the liquid into your enema kit.
