Coffee enemas have been around for a long time. They are regularly used at the Gerson Institute as part of a cleanse that is geared towards patients with severe illnesses.

Over the past several years, I have done coffee enemas and Gerson therapy cleanses to help maintain a healthy body. You can read up more on why these coffee enema cleanses are so good for you here.

And along with that, here’s a video featuring yours truly “demonstrating” how to do one of these cleanses. You’re welcome. 😉

See, that’s not so bad – right?

How to Do a Coffee Enema


  • Organic, medium or light roast coffee
  • Filtered and distilled water
  • Enema kit or Enema Bag


  1. Bring 32 ounces of water to a boil.
  2. Add 3 rounded tablespoons of organic coffee.
  3. Let boil for 3 minutes then reduce heat to let simmer (covered) for 15 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool, then strain through a cloth-lined strainer.
  5. Check the amount left after straining, and replace any water that has boiled away until you have 1 quart.
  6. Make yourself a nice spot in the bathtub, and place the bucket of coffee (enema kit) about 18 inches above your body (hang from a hook).
  7. Lubricate the tip (I use coconut oil), and gently insert 8-10 inches into the rectum.
  8. Release the clamp on the tube, and all the coffee to flow in. The more relaxed you are at this point, the better…trust me on this.
  9. Once the coffee is in, hold it for 12-15 minutes before releasing it all into the porcelain throne.

Word of caution: I’ve done a lot of reading up on these types of treatments, and before you begin you should as well. Healing The Gerson Way by Dr. Charlotte Gerson is essential reading, especially if you are dealing with a chronic disease. My post and video are not meant to treat or diagnose any illness. I’ve written this because I want to inform you and make you more knowledgeable, so that you’ll research and learn more. In her book, Dr. Gerson discusses potential complications and how to avoid them…most of which I can’t go all into in this post, so please please please do some more research before beginning.

Now, with that being said – let’s enjoy a “java fix”! 😉

Much love,
