Not too many objects have entered my booty hole in my lifetime - outside of an occasional finger here and there. So when a friend expressed her interest in trying a coffee enema and asked if I’ve ever tried it, I immediately responded with, “no” and carried on with my day. However, this is my second article about poop - so I am clearly not one to shy away from experiencing a new, and exciting way of eliminating waste. To my surprise, this would be a major topic of discussion over the following two weeks. It was even brought up in a conversation during brunch with my girls, in the middle of discussing our frustrations with Big Pharma. Turns out a friend of a friend used it during her chemo treatments, along with additional natural alternatives and fell in love with the benefits. I knew right then and there this is something I need to try.
Please note: I am not a licensed medical professional. The information following is based on the trial and error of my own experience. I leave my suggestions with hopes of healing others, but I cannot guarantee that what works for me will also work for you.
After researching for hours on end, these are the benefits that stood out the most to me that I must share:
Releases toxins from the colon and liver
Minimizes painful menstrual symptoms
Helps reduce acne and skin inflammation
What You Will Need
Ground, Organic dark roast coffee
3 cups of filtered water
Enema Kit - HERE is the one I purchased
Lubricant - I used coconut oil
How to Do It
1. Boil 3 cups of filtered water. Add 2-3 tablespoons of ground, organic dark roast coffee and allow it to simmer for 15 minutes - mix periodically.
2. Strain coffee grains, and pour liquid into a separate cup or jar. Allow liquid to cool down for about 15 minutes.
3. Pour coffee into enema bag.
4. Screw hose into the enema bag and make sure to shut the valve so no liquid flows out. (You will understand this when you purchase your enema.)
5. Hang enema kit on your shower/bath rail.
6. Lay in bathtub/floor comfortably on your back with your legs up, and feet on the wall. Make sure you have something like a book, or your phone to occupy you for the next 15 minutes.
7. Add coconut oil to the tip of the hose and insert 1 inch into your rectum.
8. Unclick the valve to allow the coffee to start flowing in.
9. Allow the coffee to stay inside of you for 15 minutes. (Hold that shit in. Literally.)
10. Make your way to the toilet. :)
I felt AMAZING after my first treatment! There was definitely a releasing of creepy, crawly parasites. Parasite cleansing has been a significant part of my healing for two years now, and it's still a trip to see them in the toilet. I felt very light and renewed, with a nice boost of energy. There was also a feeling of heightened mental clarity for hours after the enema. My favorite aspect of doing this was experiencing a noticeable reduction of skin irritation. My skin was extremely inflamed with perioral dermatitis at this time.
Overall, this is something I highly recommend. It seemed intimidating and messy at first, but it is now an easy, and inexpensive staple in my monthly internal cleansing routine. Has anyone tried this??? Leave a comment below.
