For many years I suffered from systemic candida, and didn’t get results with conventional medicine.
In fact, I became more unwell thanks to endless rounds of synthetic drugs that were being prescribed to me.
I decided to take my health into my own hands, and began my holistic journey of getting back to health.
Along the way I discovered the powerful benefits of coffee enemas in helping rid the body of Candida. (Oh, and eating a sugar free, raw organic plant based-diet also helps!)
Candida loves to hang out with the liver, and that by doing coffee enema’s regularly, they will help flush out the candida along with nasty toxins from the liver. So I tried it. And I started to get great results.
Enemas have been around since the dawn of time and have even been recorded in biblical scripts.
There are numerous studies done on the detoxifying benefits of coffee enema’s, and are a key part in treating cancer patients naturally at The Gerson Institute. They are making a come back as people are starting to see the health benefits of including enemas into their daily routines.
Coffee enemas are powerful detoxifiers, due to some amazing compounds within the coffee that stimulate the liver to produce Glutathione S transferase, a chemical which is known to be the master detoxifier in our bodies. (Plus, getting your coffee this way means you’re less likely to get addicted to caffeine!)
Glutathione S transferase binds to toxins and the toxins are then released out of the body along with coffee.
Detoxifying our bodies on a regular basis is more important than ever due to the increasing amount of toxins our bodies need to deal with everyday, from home to office, man made products, food, water, the air we breathe, and our busy stressful lifestyles.
Here are 10 Reasons on Why You Should Try A Coffee Enema:
- Reduces levels of toxicity by up to 600%.
- Cleans and heals the colon, improving peristalis.
- Increases energy levels, improves mental clarity and mood.
- Helps with depression, bad moods, sluggishness.
- Helps eliminate parasites and candida.
- Improves digestion, bile flow, eases bloating.
- Detoxifies the liver and helps repair the liver.
- Can help heal chronic health conditions (along with following a mainly raw plant based diet).
- Helps ease “die-off” or detox reactions during periods of fasting or juice fasting, cleansing or healing.
- Used regularly in the Gerson Institute treatment protocol for healing cancer patients naturally.
Even if you’re sensitive to caffeine, it won’t affect you taking your coffee this way. (Definitely do not attempt to use decaf coffee though, you won’t get the benefits.) By taking it orally, the coffee goes through your digestive system and stomach acids, which nullify any benefits you’d get if you took your coffee via the portal vein to the liver!
Ok, so how do I do it?
First off you will need to purchase an enema kit, you can buy a traveller’s kit or something a bit more robust such as the plastic bucket type kits. I prefer the traveller’s kit as its easy to store and discreet for travelling. You can order these kits online. (I bought mine here.)
Buy some premium ground ORGANIC coffee beans and keep them in the freezer until you need to use the coffee.
Ideally do your coffee enema after a bowel movement, so you can retain the coffee for longer. So mornings are best for most people. If you are constipated, do the enema anyway, this will get things moving nicely!
Grab a saucepan and put 2 tablespoons of organic coffee in the saucepan. Add 3 cups of FILTERED water to the pot.
Bring to the boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat after 15 minutes and let it cool. When it’s body temperature (you can test this by placing a clean finger into the coffee, it will be neither hot or cold) strain through a nut milk bag into a clean glass pouring jar.
Head to the bathroom with your strained coffee and set up a space and something comfortable for you to lie down on. Hint: Be near a toilet and use an old towel as you sometimes may get slight coffee leakage. Grab a pillow and some reading material as you will be here for approximately 12 to 15 minutes.
Now assemble your enema kit. It must have a tube and nozzle attached to the bucket or bag. Make sure it’s at least 1 meter above ground. (Hanging on a towel rail or shower rail is a good idea.)
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.
Now you can either remain lying on your right side or lie on your back with your feet up above head level or feet resting against a wall above head level. You can even do some yogi moves like a shoulder stand or a half plough type position, this helps get the coffee moving round nicely, you may also hear some funny squirting noises from your tummy, this is a good sign and an indication of the bile being stimulated for release.
Try to retain the enema for 12 to 15 minutes. You may 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.
When you are ready to release head to the toilet and let it go.
You should feel a lot lighter in body and mind by now!
To keep your enema kit in tip-top shape clean with a mild detergent and ensure everything is dry before packing away.
Coffee enemas are very safe and are sometimes taken up to 6 times a day in chronically ill patients. If you are healing, on a detox program, or cleansing, I recommend daily enemas. For maintenance, I recommend weekly enemas.
If you are wishing to remove candida and pathogens, try 3 back-to-back, and continue to do them on a regular basis.
If you have tried a coffee enema for the first time or have just started regular coffee enemas I would love to hear from you! Are you feeling the benefits? And if so, what are they? Drop me a line or two in the comments section below!

Please note that focusing on one treatment protocol of anything is not a guaranteed cure all for everything. To truly heal is a holistic journey incorporating many things including a clean organic raw vegan diet, periodic juice fasting, and daily detox protocols, mentally and physically.
