Step 1: Heat the water and coffee

  • Bring 4 cups of distilled water to a boil
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of ground organic coffee to the pot
  • Boil on high for 3 minutes then cover and let simmer for 12-15 minutes
  • Remove pot from stove
  • Pour coffee into glass mason jar using a strainer to catch the coffee grounds
  • Cool in freezer or refrigerator.
  • Use a thermometer to check the temperature. Temp should be between 90-100 degrees fahrenheit.

Step 2: Set up your bathroom for procedure

Hang your enema bag somewhere high, so the coffee can flow easily. I hang it on my shower rod.

Make sure the enema bag, hose, and tip are clean. I use a combination of non-toxic dish soap, unscented castile soap and essential oils to clean my enema equipment.

Have a designated spot to lay down, either in the tub or on the floor. I lie on the floor on a yoga mat and towel. I also have a travel pillow I use to rest my head.

Step 3: Perform your enema

Hang your enema bag in your bathroom on a towel rack or shower rod. Make sure the clamp in closed, so the fluid doesn’t leak out when you pour it in the bag. Lubricate the tip with coconut oil to make insertion easy. When you have the bag hanging and the tube clipped, you’re ready to add the coffee.

Turn on some relaxing music, turn off your phone, and empty your bladder. Lie on the floor on your left side. Insert the enema tip gently. When you feel comfortable, release the clamp on the water line and let the coffee enter. Keep one hand on the clamp, so you can adjust the flow at any time.

Retain for 12-15 minutes

Breath deeply and retain the fluid as long as you can. 12-15 minutes is ideal, but if you have to release after 5 minutes, that’s okay.


After retaining the coffee for 12-15 minutes, you should start feeling a strong urge to go. Release the coffee in the toilet and you’re done! This is a great way to get the liver to dump bile and toxins quickly.

Repeat as often as needed. Dr. Max Gerson recommends 4-6 times per day for cancer therapy. However, that’s likely too much for most people. Depending on your health condition and reason for doing a coffee enema, you may try once per day, a couple times per week, or once per quarter. You’re the best judge of what is right for you.

A couple times a year, I’ll do daily enemas for a week as a detox and reset. For maintenance, I do a couple times per month.
