Enemas may not sound appealing, but they are very effective and can provide some amazing benefits. An enema naturally cleanses the colon, eliminating blockages and improving overall health. Enemas also provide the body with instant hydration. Even more than a water enema, coffee enemas have some incredible benefits, which will be discussed more below.
Benefits of Coffee Enema
A coffee enema supports the liver’s function in eliminating toxins from the body. It also increases bile flow, which in turn promotes healthy and regular digestion.
In addition, as briefly mentioned above, all enemas clean the colon, but coffee enemas are perhaps the most effective at cleansing this organ.
Cleansing the colon reduces the absorption of toxins in the intestines, which can prevent many health issues and complications. A coffee enema will be most effective at cleansing the liver and colon if it is utilized directly after a colon cleanse.
Coffee enemas may also be effective in helping the body fight off many diseases, and perhaps even cancer, due to their free radical-fighting properties.
How to do a Coffee Enema
For the coffee enema, you will need:
- 2-quart enema bag with clamp and bucket (found in most health or pharmacy stores)
- Organic coffee
- Purified, boiled water
Place 2-3 tablespoons of the organic coffee into 2-3 cups of water; bring to a boil in a saucepan, and boil for five minutes.
After five minutes, turn off the heat and let it cool to room temperature, then strain through a strainer or coffee filter into the enema bag.
At this point, it’s time to get your other equipment ready.
Fasten the hose onto the enema bag, with the thin tip at the opposite end.
Remove any air that may be in the tube by holding it (tip side down) into the sink and holding it by the bag until water begins to flow out; quickly close the clamp.
For final preparation, be sure to lubricate the enema tip.
When ready to take the enema, lay on your back on the floor or in the bathtub, with a towel underneath you.
Making sure the clamp is closed, hang the bag about a foot above your stomach. Insert the tip slowly and carefully, and keep moving it around until it goes all the way in. Once the tip is in, release the clamp, the coffee will begin to flow.
It is not uncommon to experience some cramping during the initial stage; if this happens then slowly close the clamp, take a breath or two, then slowly return to the process.
When the bag is empty, clamp the hose closed. Allow the enema to sit inside you (best to stay in your lying position, and some people leave the tip in) for twelve-fifteen minutes.
After fifteen minutes, head over to the toilet and allow the coffee water to drain.
Congratulations, you’ve just completed a successful hydrating and body-cleansing enema!
A water enema is similar to a coffee enema, but of course contains only pure, filtered water. It’s best to purchase filtered water for the procedure, and you can heat it up to room temperature if you prefer.
A water enema will be performed following the same steps as a coffee enema. Although you won’t get all of the same benefits from a plain water enema, you will still benefit from instant hydration and a thorough colon cleanse.
Possible Side Effects
One side effect from an enema is of course simple discomfort. To minimize this, be sure that your liquid (either coffee or water) is a comfortable temperature. Also, try to create a relaxing environment: play music or listen to a favorite podcast and make sure you have a comfortable surface underneath you.
If you experience some gas during or after the enema, try to work out right before you take your next enema. To avoid feeling faint or weak, try eating something light right before you perform the enema.
If you suffer from hemorrhoids, you may have more difficulty performing the enema, and it may be best to postpone until the hemorrhoids have been treated.
Although enemas don’t sound like fun, they are a great resource for cleansing the body. There are virtually no serious side effects, aside from discomfort, that come along with performing an enema.
Always be sure to wash all materials after use. Remember that practice makes perfect, so if the first time doesn’t go as well as planned, don’t give up—give it another shot!
