Enemas have been an ancient method of treatment and came into existence in 1500 BC or at least that is what we know from recorded history where the Egyptian’s medical documents seem to mention them. Babylonians have also been known to use enemas and they have been mentioned on tablets that were found. The Greek also used enemas and Hippocrates used it to cure fever.
Galen another prominent physician of Greeks also used it in 100 A.D. During the 1300s many prominent people including royals were known to get enemas. It has been used till modern day due its countless benefits. These enemas are known to have countless benefits. Coffee enemas are subsequently known to have many more benefits out of which I will inform you about 12.
12. Enemas Are Healthy
Enemas help you get rid of waste and toxins that have accumulated in your rectum for years. They help you feel cleaner and lighter in a matter of minutes and can have great overall benefits for your health. Water enemas as I have mentioned earlier are quite healthy on their own.
However, I feel as a responsible Samaritan I should tell you that you shouldn’t make enema a regular practice and should not do it very often.
11. It Improves Mental Clarity
Coffee enemas can help relax your sympathetic nervous system. What I mean to say is that it removes the “fight or flight” response system. This is the system that is utilized with access release of adrenaline. This is our body’s natural way of dealing stress. However it helps clog our regular mental processes. We tend to take impulsive decisions in a fight or flight situation.
By performing a coffee enema we tend to relax our liver and large intestine giving our body and mind a feeling of relaxation which helps clear up our mind. It also helps us in taking better decisions. This is better than drinking coffee as that on the other hand tends to make us hyper thus increasing our impulsivity in situations. So if you’re wondering how to get rid of stress easily, just try this magical remedy.

Bile contains toxins that are released by our gall bladder. Bile is reabsorbed in our system upto 10 times. The reabsorbed bile toxifies our body. Coffee enemas help remove the toxins and the bile so that the toxins cannot enter our body again.

Ok, so we have talked about the benefits of a coffee enema but let us now talk about how it is done. All you have to do is either buy or make an enema kit. You can find many DIYs on how to make an enema kit but frankly I would say just buying a kit is much better. You can easily buy one online and get it delivered to your door step.
Now, use 2 tablespoons of organic coffee and add it in ¾ litre (3 cups) of filtered water. Add the coffee to the water and put it on a stove to boil. Once the water reaches to a boil, you need to lower the flame and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes and your enema is ready. Now let it cool for a while. Make it cool enough to reach your body temperature. If the water is too cold it may cause you additional discomfort while performing the enema.
Perform the enema in your bathroom. Lie down on your bathroom floor while placing the kit somewhere higher for easy inflow. Make sure you remove the air from the nozzle. Face your right and let the enema pour in. You have to hold the coffee in for around 15 minutes. You may find it a little painful and difficult in the beginning. You will get the feeling that you want to defecate but you just have to set your eyes on the prize.
- Make sure that you are near the toilet as there may come a point where you cannot keep the liquid in for even a second longer
- Keep something to read or your phone with you as you will need to distract yourself.
- Doing the enema on a regular basis will improve its results drastically.
- Using Vaseline or a lubricant can help the insertion of the nozzle.
- Wash and dry your enema kit if you plan to use it again.
