Coffee Enema and Enema Coffee Recipe 2019

Excerpts from Dr. Sherry Rogers 1994 book “Wellness Against All Odds

The very last part of the colon, before reaching the rectum, is in an “S” shape and called the sigmoid colon. By the time stool gets to this part of the colon, most nutrients have been absorbed back into the bloodstream. Because the stool contains products of putrefaction at this point, there exists a special circulatory system between the sigmoid colon and the liver. There is a direct communication of veins called the enterohepatic circulation. Have you ever felt sick just before having a bowel movement, when stool material has just moved into the rectum for elimination? As soon as the material is evacuated, you no longer feel sick. This is due of the toxic quality of the material and the enterohepatic circulation coming into play. Because of this, it is important to evacuate when you have the urge. The rectum should usually be empty.

This circulatory system enables toxin to be sent directly to the liver for detoxification, rather than circulating them through the rest of the body and all of its vital organs including the brain. This system of veins carries rectal / sigmoid toxins directly to the liver for detoxification.

When a coffee enema is used, the caffeine from the coffee is preferentially absorbed into this system and goes directly to the liver where it becomes a very strong detoxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination. This seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream. The coffee does not go into the systemic circulation, unless the enema procedure is done improperly.

The coffee contains some alkaloids that also stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, an enzyme used by the liver to make the detox pathways run. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione, one of the main conjugation chemicals, enabling toxins to be eliminated via bile into the small intestine. So in other words, a coffee enema speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances. You will need the following materials:

The see through enema bag/ bucket is preferable, but an old fashioned type that doubles as a hot water bottle can be used although it is hard to tell how much is used at each pass. Do not use any bag with a strong odor.


  1. Put a little over 1 quart of clean water in a pan and bring it to a boil. Add 2 flat tablespoons of coffee (or the coffee amount that has been prescribed for you, the Gerson Program recommends 3 rounded Tbsp.). Let it continue to boil for five minutes, then turn the stove off, leaving the pan on the hot burner.
  2. Allow it to cool down to a very comfortable, tepid temperature. Test with your finger. It should be the same temperature as a baby’s bottle. It’s safer to have it too cold than too warm; never use it hot or steaming; body temperature is good.
  3. Next, carry your pan or pot and lay an old towel on the floor (or your bed if you are careful and know you won’t spill – for safety, a piece of plastic can be placed under the towel). If you don’t use an old towel, you will soon have many old towels since coffee stains permanently. Use another bunch of towels, if you want, as a pillow and bring along some appropriately relaxing literature. Pour the coffee from the pan into the enema bucket without getting the coffee grounds in the cup. You may prefer to use an intermediate container with a pour spout when going from the pan to the enema bucket. Do not use a paper filter to strain the grounds. Put your enema bag in the sink with the catheter clamped closed.
  4. Pour the coffee into the enema bag. Loosen the clamp to allow the coffee to run out to the end of the catheter tip and re-clamp the bag when all the air has been removed from the enema tubing.
  5. Use a coat hanger to hang the enema bag at least two feet above the floor; on a door knob or towel rack. The bucket can rest on a chair, shelf or be held. Do not hang it high, as on a shower head, because it will be too forceful and the hose won’t reach. It should flow very gently into the rectum and distal sigmoid colon only. It is not a high enema or colonic. Allowing it to go well up into the colon may introduce caffeine into the general circulation as though you had taken it by mouth.
  6. Lie down on the floor on your back or right side and gently insert the catheter. If you need lubrication, food grade vegetable oil such as olive oil, a vitamin E capsule, or KY jelly should be fine, unless you are chemically sensitive. It is generally a good idea to avoid petroleum products.
  7. Gently insert the tube into the rectum a few inches and then release the clamp and let the first 1/2 of the quart (2 cups maximum) of coffee flow in. Clamp the tubing off as soon as there is the slightest amount of discomfort or fullness. Do not change positions or use an incline board to cause the enema to enter further into the colon; this defeats the purpose of this type of enema.

Try to retain the enema for a minimum of 12 or more minutes. Sometimes there will be an immediate urgency to get rid of it and that is fine. It helps to clean the stool out of the colon so that next time around you can hold more of the enema longer. Never force yourself to retain it if you feel that you can’t. When you have clamped the tubing, remove the catheter tip and void when you have to. It is best to hold it for at least 12 minutes each time. After you have emptied the bowel, proceed with the remaining 1/2 quart and likewise hold that for at least 12 minutes, if able, then void.

The goal is to have two enemas, not exceeding 1/2 a quart (2 cups) each, that you are able to hold for 12 to 15 minutes each. Usually 2 or 3 times will use up all of the enema, but that is not your goal.( The Gerson Program recommends one 4 cup enema) Being able to hold it for 12 to 15 minutes is. When you have finished your session, rinse out the bag and hang it up to dry. Periodically run boiling water, peroxide, or other comparable antimicrobial agent through the empty bag to discourage mold growth when not in use.

If you feel wired or hyper, or have palpitations or irregular heartbeats after a enema, you should reduce the amount of coffee, usually by half for a few days or weeks. Or consider that you really need organic coffee. Be sure the source of your water is good clean chemical-free spring, well, or filtered water.

Sometimes you will hear or feel a squirting out and emptying of the gallbladder. This occurs under the right rib cage, or sometimes more closely to the mid line. If after a week of daily enemas you have never felt or heard the gall bladder release, You should consider making the coffee stronger, going up in 1/2 Tablespoon increments per quart, not exceeding 2 Tablespoon per cup. Alternately, you may need a slightly larger volume, such as 3 cups at a time. Sometimes, 3 enemas (2 cups or less each) rather than two at a session are more beneficial for some.

Always discontinue the enemas if there is any adverse reaction whatsoever, and discuss it with the doctor at your next appointment. If you find the enema helpful, do not use it more than once per day for any extended period without medical supervision. Use it as necessary, perhaps several days in a row, but more commonly a few times a week.

Recipe for Coffee Enema Concentrate

We recommend S. A. Wilson’s specially selected and roasted coffee, which is higher in active ingredients than all other organically grown coffee ( This is because Wilson’s beans are chosen for their high active-ingredient levels, and are then roasted only enough that they can be ground. This results in a blond coffee that smells like peanuts and is not at all palatable for drinking; however, the light roasting process preserves the medical benefits of the beans. The darker the roast, the less medical benefit. Regular-roast coffee requires 3 heaping Tbsp per dose. Wilson’s requires only 2 Tbsp per dose.

Coffee Concentrate for Enemas (yield 10 doses)

Combine 2 measuring cups of Wilson’s coffee (2 heaping Tbsp/dose) and 10 cups distilled or purified water in a large pot.

Place over high heat, uncovered.

Bring to a rolling boil for 5 minutes or until foam is visibly decreased.

Tightly cover, lower the heat, and simmer for 30 – 60 minutes. When it is completely extracted by simmering, Wilson’s coffee darkens to a tan that, interestingly, lightens as it sits.

Strain – NO paper or cloth FILTERS!

Replace water that has boiled away by rinsing grounds and straining into container of concentrate. You should finish with 10 cups.

To use concentrate: Combine 1 Cup concentrate + 3 Cups purified water (warm enough to make solution slightly warmer than body temperature, 103-104°).

The following Coffee Enema information is a excerpt from Dr. William Donald Kelley’s book ; Cancer Curing the Incurable.

Cleansing The Colon

The Coffee Enema

A high retention enema, using coffee, should be taken to aid in the elimination of toxic waste material from the body.  The coffee should be taken daily for as long as one is on Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Program ®.  After 40 years, Dr. Kelley still takes his daily enema.

The enema is very stimulating to the liver and is the greatest aid in the elimination of the liver’s toxic wastes.

The enema, besides stimulating liver detoxification, also has beneficial effects in cleaning the colon.  Coffee is an excellent solvent for encrusted waste accumulated along the walls of the colon.  The caffeine also directly stimulates the peristaltic muscle to contract more powerfully and loosen such deposits, which are occasionally visible as hard, black material and “ropes” of mucus.  Gradually, as the protein metabolism of the body improves, the muscle tone of the bowel becomes normal and thorough evacuation is possible without the aid of the enema.

Essentially, the enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed – that of elimination in 1 or 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature.

At first, most people dislike enemas and have psychological barriers against them.  Ignorance of the purpose and function of the enema, as well as misunderstanding of the proper procedure for taking it bring about this aversion.  I have observed, however, that the person most opposed to enemas soon reverse their prejudices and become the most avid supporters of them!  In many cases, the enema relieves distress and gives a sense of well being and cleanliness never before experienced.  The proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill health.

It is most desirable to take the  enema early in the morning and it may be repeated again in early afternoon and/or evening, depending on the toxic condition of the body.  Enemas using coffee in the afternoon or evening may interfere with sound sleep.  If enemas are needed at these times, many patients prefer to use only warm pure water omitting the coffee.  But it is better to take coffee at these times also, and a weaker solution to permit sleep would be better than not using coffee at all.

Organic Coffee For The Enema

Many people prefer to use organic coffee for their enemas.  One researcher in Canada has produced and developed a special, effective blend of organic coffee beans from different parts of the world that produces a very effective enema.  This research has created the first coffee blended and roasted for enema use, S.A. Wilson’s Gold Roast Coffee, 1666 Baseline Rd W, Courtice, Ontario L1E 2S7, Canada.  289-634-3311.

How To Make A Enema Solution with Coffee

Just before bedtime each day, make a pot of coffee (1 quart).  Unplug coffeepot and allow to cool to room temperature.

It is best to arise early enough each morning to allow time to take the enema in a relaxed, unhurried state.

The coffee must be regular, non-instant, non-decaffeinated coffee.  It must be prepared in enamelware, Corning Ware™, glass or stainless steel, or by the tricolator filter method.  Aluminum or Teflon should not be used at any time!  We have found the coffee that is unmilled or prepared via the “drip method” is preferable.  Use 3 to 4 tablespoons of ground coffee to 1 quart of warm, filtered, distilled, reverse osmosis or alkaline water.

Avoidance of city water supplies (always chlorinated, which has been strongly linked to hardening of the arteries, and often fluoridated, which has been strongly linked to cancer and thyroid disease) is most essential to removing stress from the kidneys.  Any water that enters the body should be from filtered, distilled. reverse osmosis or alkaline water.  This water should be used for cooking and drinking – and even for preparing enemas, since a significant portion of the enema water may be absorbed and filtered through the kidneys.  Even if one has a well, it should not be assumed safe.  Often toxic amounts of copper, cadmium and lead are picked up from the plumbing even if the well is pure.  It is best to purchase the water filter instrument.  Remember, if one distills water from a city supply, one must remember that certain hydrocarbon contaminants have a lower boiling point than that of water.  The distiller should have a valve to permit their escape as they gasify.  If not, they will concentrate in the distilled water and will need to be removed by filtering through activated charcoal.

If a enema makes a person jittery, shaky, nervous, nauseated or light-headed, the coffee solution is too strong.  The amount of coffee can be adjusted from 1 teaspoon to 4 tablespoons per quart of water as tolerance levels permits.

The high, retention enema should consist of 1 quart of coffee, held for 15 minutes.  Some people, children especially, can take and retain only a pint (2 cups) of enema solution at a time.  If this is the case, one must take 2 enemas each time, one right after the other, and hold each for 15 minutes as directed.

Upon rising each morning plug in the coffeepot for a few seconds to bring the coffee to body temperature; unplug and take the morning  enema.

How To Take A Coffee Enema

Before the enema do some form of mild exercise if possible, such as walking briskly.  If one is extremely debilitated and weak, this step will of course need to be omitted until strength returns.

Attempt a normal bowel movement.  The enema is much more effective if the colon has been evacuated.  One should not become disturbed, however, if there are no regular bowel movements, or very few, during Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Program®.  In many cases not enough bulk collects to instigate a normal bowel movement.  When no normal bowel movements are forthcoming, the enema cleans the colon adequately.

Bulk formers such as Metamucil™ (or other brands of Psyllium Husks obtainable at drug or health food stores) taken as directed, or 2 tablespoons of miller’s bran with each meal (obtainable at the health food store) are quite helpful in forming stools and thereby creating more normal bowel movements for those who take daily enemas.

After the normal bowel movement, if one is forthcoming, or before taking the coffee retention enema, most people find that taking an enema with 1 quart of warm Wellness Water is very helpful (do not retain this enema).  This procedure begins the cleansing of the colon, removing large particles of residue and most of the gas.  When it is completed, the coffee retention enema may be taken.  The warm water enema is optional and does not need to be taken if the enema can be retained for the desired period.

Place 1 quart of coffee in your enema bag or bucket.  You may use a Fleet enema bag, which is a disposable large volume plastic bag, an over-the-counter item from the local pharmacy or hospital supply outlet.  This enema bag lasts about 2 years.

The enema tip on the end of the hose is not adequate to give a “high enema”.  Place a colon tube (DAVOL) size 24 French or 26 French or 28 French on the opposite end of the plastic tube from the enema bag.  This colon tube is a soft, flexible rubber-like tube around 24 inches in length.  It follows the curves and flexure of the colon.  The colon tube is usually inserted about 12 to 20 inches into the rectum. (Editor’s Note:  It is difficult today to find a colon tube.  However, a plastic rectal catheter or tube about 18 inches long may be ordered from your pharmacy as an over-the-counter item.)

Next, allow the coffee to flow to the end of the colon tube, thus eliminating any air in the tube.

The colon tube should be lubricated with natural creamery butter, Vitamin E cream or other lubricant that doesn’t contain additives or chemicals.

Insert the tube 12 to 20 inches into the rectum, if possible.  This should be done slowly, in a rotating motion that helps to keep the tube from “kinking up” inside the colon.

The enema bag should not be over 36 inches higher than the rectum.  If it is placed too high, the coffee runs into the colon too fast and under too much pressure causing discomfort.

There are several positions that can be used while inserting the colon tube.  Squatting is one.  There is also the knee-chest method, with chest and knees on the floor and buttocks in the highest position possible.  Most people, however, find it easiest to lie on the left side until the solution is out of the bag or bucket.  The enema should never been taken while sitting on the toilet or standing.

Some people’s colons have kinks or turns in them that may prevent the tube from being inserted even 18 inches.  Often, if a little bit of the solution is allowed to flow into the colon as the tube is being inserted, one may comfortably get past these kinks.

If a kink bends the tube too much and stops the flow of liquid, then the tube can be inserted only as far as it will go, still allowing the liquid to flow freely.

Sometimes, if one hits a kink that stops the flow of the liquid completely, the tube can be pulled out slowly just to the point where the solution is felt flowing again.  Frequently, the tube can be pushed back in, past the turn that previously stopped the liquid.

Because of the shapes and formations of some people’s colons, or of course if a child is being given the enema, it will be possible to insert the tube only a few inches.  Occasionally, this is a permanent situation.  Often, however, as the colon is cleaned and healed, the tube can eventually be inserted further.

The tube should neverbe forced when discomfort occurs.

After the flow of the solution is completed, one may remove the colon tube, although is isn’t necessary to do so.  Regardless of the position used up to this point, one should now lie on the left side for at least 5 minutes, then on the back for another 5 minutes, then on the right side for at least 5 minutes.

Those who have excess gas may leave the tube in the colon with the hose clamp open.  This allows gas to escape through the enema container.  Frequently, the coffee will go in and out of the enema bag or bucket until the gas is relieved.

After the enema is retained for 15 minutes or longer, it may be expelled.

One is now ready for the rest of his daily routine clean and refreshed.

Helpful Hints

If you find you have a lot of gas and it is difficult to retain the enema, try putting 2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses into your coffee solutions.

If you get a sudden gas bubble causing an urge to expel the solution, breathe very fast through your nose using your abdominal muscles like a bellows.  This usually helps the colon wall break up the gas bubble.

If you find that a little coffee leaks out, place an old towel under your buttocks.
