Then hold the enema for 15 minutes and release it into the toilet. It will help you to retain it if you have had a bowel movement beforehand or flushed out your colon with a water flush enema beforehand, using one to two pints of body temperature filtered water and allowing it to be expelled as soon as the urge to defecate comes. Most people report increased mental clarity and energy after a coffee enema. They can also help to normalise bowel movements, particularly if you suffer from constipation, contrary to many people’s fears that using enemas will make the bowels weaker.

However in June, we went on a camping trip and when I got home I had huge welts on my forehead and the side of my face. I contributed that to mosquito bites and treated with all sorts of things until finally the two creams were able to get it under control and I knew deep down inside it wasn’t just mosquito bites. In September a friend suggested that I look into the connection between heavy metals, yeast, and kidney stones, and started on a heavy metal detox (oral). That was rough, as oral detox programs shove everything thru the liver.

That is all based on the big “IF”, which has yet to be proven. So far the only study actually presented shows the coffee enemas DO NOT raise glutathione levels. So the answer could be as simple as the coffee enemas are allowing the absorption of the tannins that are binding the chemotherapy drugs rendering the chemotherapy drugs useless. Well I’ve finally gotten hold of the Wattenberg study (the Gerson Institute was kind enough to send it to me), and it appears you are right! The study in question was done by feeding mice powdered green coffee beans, which increased GST by 600% in the liver and by 700% in the small intestine.

Many people claim coffee enemas improve their health and well-being without negative side effects. Because statistics about coffee enemas are hard to come by, it’s difficult to determine if most people have had a positive or negative experience. If you choose to get a coffee enema, you may feel cramping, pressure, and fullness during the procedure. You may also feel shaky or experience heart palpitations as a side effect of the caffeine.
One naturopath I know of suggested that people start with only a pinch of coffee if they are sensitive. That seems more responsible to me. The article on the effect of coffee on cancer is not relevant in and of itself. But taken together with the other studies, which suggest that coffee may be also be a powerful detoxifier, may not be harmful to the body in small quantities, and is 3.5 times less bioavailable to the body when taken rectally rather than orally (causing fewer adrenal effects) it makes sense that coffee enemas make people feel better, and not just due to the caffeine rush.
Supplements? Nutrients that can also be bound by the oxalic acid in the coffee?
Coffee Enema Benefits
Try to take about half of the liquid (about ½ quart) into the bowels; then hold for 10 minutes before expelling. (During this time, you may close the clamp, remove the nozzle from the rectum; then lie on your right side during the 10 minutes or lie on your back with legs and pelvis elevated on a pillow if possible. If desired, you may lie in a bathtub during this time for easier cleanup.) This is a great time for reading. After 10 minutes, expel the fluid.
