“I’m not able to hold coffee enemas.”
· Re-read the proper coffee enema recipe & procedure to ensure that you are doing it
· Check the height of the bucket—make sure it is less than 18” (45 cm) high, or else
the coffee will flow too fast, causing cramps.
· Check the temperature of the coffee or water. If it is too hot or too cold, it may be
more difficult for the patient to hold.
· Pull your knees closer to your stomach, in a fetal position.
· Difficulty holding could be caused by the presence of feces or gas. In this case, try
doing an enema first with 16 ounces of distilled water at body temperature; rub your
stomach so the water flows into your colon, hold it for about 5 minutes and release.
After the water enema, you may try a coffee enema. Please note that a plain water
enema would not be given each time—only first thing in the morning.
· Lower the enema bucket to release gas, and then raise it back up.
· Relax, breathe deeply.
· While instilling the coffee, if spasms occur, stop the flow with the clamp as needed,
· Introduce half of the enema solution, release, and then go back to do the remaining
· Add potassium compound to coffee enema:
o Relieves spasms and cramping
o Dosage: 2 tablespoons per coffee enema
o Discontinue use after 1-2 days
· The first enema of the day can be the most difficult. Try a chamomile tea enema
first and hold for only 5 minutes (see references for the recipe), and then follow it up
with the coffee enema.
· Use less coffee to make a less concentrated enema.
o One option is to make the coffee enema ½ strength, and fill the rest with the chamomile tea solution.
· Place a warm water bottle on the stomach to relax muscles.
· Place the tip of your thumb on the first knuckle of your ring finger (similar to an “a
ok” sign– and apply pressure to the knuckle. Hold that pressure until your cramping
