My liver enzymes are terribly high and I can't continue with my treatment until they're back to normal. I was advised that coffee enemas would help clean up my liver.

Can anyone tell me the proper way to do these at home. I have the equipment.

Blessings to you!

Must use Organic Coffee & Filtered water. I buy my coffe from Aldi or Whole Foods. It is organic and fare trade. I got a cheap, washable Yoga mat to put on bathroom floor. Just put a towel over it. I hope your "crappacino" goes well
The Coffee Enema for Liver Detoxification

Based upon Dr. Gerson's work.

More information in his book: A Cancer Therapy, Results in Fifty


The coffee enema has been used for many years to detoxify the

liver. It is a low-volume enema that remains only in the sigmoid

colon. There is a duct between the sigmoid colon and the liver called

the entero-hepatic circulation system. When the stool reaches this

point, most nutrients have been absorbed and the stool contains many

toxins, which are sent to the liver for detoxification. 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 to the

toxic quality of the material and the enterohepatic circulation

coming into play.

The caffeine that is absorbed into the entero-hepatic system

causes the liver ducts, including the bile ducts, to empty into the

sigmoid colon and be eliminated. Releasing the toxins in the liver

ducts, makes room for toxins from the body to enter the liver for

detoxification. The alkaloids in the caffeine stimulate the

production of glutathione-S-transferase, which is an enzyme that

facilitates the liver detoxification pathways. So in other words, a

coffee enema speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the

backlog of yet to be detoxified substances. Coffee enemas will not

waste minerals and electrolytes because they have already been

absorbed in the previous sections of the intestines. The coffee enema

is safe even for people who are sensitive to caffeine because the

coffee remains in the sigmoid colon, where it will not be absorbed,

provided the proper amount is used and the enema bag is not placed too


Preparing the Coffee Enema

Add 2-3 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee (organically grown coffee

is absolutely essential*) to 1 litre of water (preferably distilled).

Let it boil lightly for 3 minutes, then simmer for a total of 20

minutes. Keep lid on.

Cool and strain thru a cheese cloth (not a paper filter)

Use when it is body temperature.


Next, carry your pan or pot and lay an old towel on the floor of your

bathroom. 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. Put your enema bag in the sink with the catheter

clamped closed. 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

reclamp the bag when all the air has been removed from the enema

tubing. Hang the enema bag at least two feet above the floor (but

not too high).

Lie down on your right side, with both legs drawn close to the

abdomen. Breathe deeply, in order to suck in the greatest amount of

fluid into the necessary parts of the colon. It also helps to let all

of the air out of the lungs and suck the gut in and out while in this


If you need lubrication for insertion, use food grade vegetable oil

such as olive oil. Gently insert the tube into the rectum a few

inches and then release the clamp and let the first 1/2 of the litre

(1 cup; 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.

The fluid should be retained for 12 to 15 minutes. It helps to have a

clock or watch in view, and relaxing reading material. Dr. Gerson

found that all the caffeine is absorbed from the fluid within 12


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 litre (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.

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 coffee 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

litre, 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.

I boil a quart of water in a stainless kettle. I pour it over 4 tbsp ORGANIC CAFFEINATED coffee in a french press. I let it brew for at least 5 min. COOL coffee!!!!!!

Then use an enema bag. Try to hold for 15 min.

The first time you might want to use only a tbsp of coffee to see how you do. Some people with severe detox issues have trouble with them, so you don't want to use strong coffee in case you're one of these people.

I lie down on a towel on the bathroom floor and hang the bag from the doorknob. I've read that you should lie on your right side.

The first time it might be easier to do half, retain for 15 min, then do the other half.

I found that the coffee enemas improved how I felt by as much as 30%.

I also had wonderful results with the Hulda Clark liver cleanse.
