How To Do A Coffee Enema To Detox The Liver

How To Do A Coffee Enema To Detox The Liver

Coffee contains unique compounds that stimulate your liver to produce the most potent detoxifying enzyme called glutiothione-S-transferase (GST). Your liver uses this compound to operate detox pathways.

Glutathione is your master antioxidant and ultimate defence system protecting you from oxidative stress and cellular DNA damage, scooping of all sorts of toxins in the body, and recycling other antioxidants in the body. When your glutathione levels drop you can expect your health to plummet as well.

Little known fact, people who are cleansing and healing from a Candida overgrowth have depleted glutathione levels. This is because Candida is constantly flooding your body with toxins, specifically a lethal compound called acetaldehyde which directly depletes your glutathione levels and sabotages your liver function and detox pathways.

Doing just 1 coffee enema can increases your glutathione levels up by 700%!!

The caffeine stimulates nerves in your colon to trigger the release of toxins from the liver moving them into the small intestine for instant elimination. Coffee enemas essentially free up the liver from backlogged toxins and speeds up the detoxification process.

But the secret is to consume your coffee through your ‘backdoor’ so it gets to your liver via the portal vein, otherwise these compounds get neutralized by your digestive process. Sorry, drinking coffee doesn’t have the same epic detoxing benefits as a coffee enema’s do.

Dr. Nick Gonzalez Explains How Coffee Enemas Are Used In Cancer Treatment

Enemas are a very safe and effective procedure. The use of enemas and their health benefits dates back to the Dead Sea Scrolls some 2000 years ago, archives can be even found in the Vatican! (“The Essene Gospel of Peace”.)

Coffee enema’s are a key part in treating cancer patients naturally at the world famous Gerson Institute. Today regular enemas are an integral part of natural treatment in serious health conditions such as cancer, autoimmune conditions, and neurological disease.

You can use coffee enemas to improve energy levels, enhance mental clarity and improve mood, prevent bloating, reduce toxicity of the whole body, and encourage life-long robust health.

And you don’t have to be ill to benefit from coffee enemas once a week. Your liver could always use the extra support.


The Best Coffee To Use

Always use organic coffee! It’s best if it is shade grown and lightly roasted.

The brand that specializes in coffee for coffee enemas is S.A. Wilson’s Gold Roast. Containing 44% more caffeine and 87% more palmitic acid than your average coffee, this is the precise coffee used in Gerson Therapy coffee enemas.


Basic Procedure

The standard Gerson Therapy coffee enema procedure consists of one 4 cup enema being held in for 12-15 minutes. However don’t be surprised if you can’t even hold it in for longer than 3 minutes your first couple tries.

 To work up to the Gerson Protocol you can divide your enema into 2 or 3 rounds.


 Materials Needed

  • Organic coffee, lightly roasted and fully caffeinated (NO DECAF!). Must be organic to avoid unwanted pesticides and other toxic contaminants
. Finely ground.
  • ​An enema bag or bucket (a clear bag is preferred but not necessary)
  • ​A large stainless steel cooking pot
  • Clean filtered water that is chlorine free. Chlorinated water can be boiled for 10 minutes prior to using)
  • ​Fine mesh strainer or nut bag to filter the coffee, avoid white paper coffee filters.



  1. Boil 4 cups of water and add 3 tbsp of coffee. This is the The Gerson Protocol, but you can start with 2 tbsp.
  2. Let it boil for 5 minutes, then turn off and let cool.
  3. As you wait for your coffee to cool prepare your bathroom. Make a nice cozy place to lay down by placing old towels or blankets down for cushioning. Make sure the top layer is a towel you don’t mind getting coffee stains on.
  4. Check the temperature of your brew with your finger. It should be a nice soothing body temperature, think baby’s bottle. It is better to have it too cold rather than too hot, unless you would like to scald your colon…
  5. Strain the coffee through a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag to remove the grinds and pour it into your enema bag. Make sure the catheter is clamped closed before pouring in the coffee.
  6. Take your enema and go to the bathroom. Remove excess air in the enema over the sink by loosening the clamp to let the coffee run out the end of the catheter then re-clamp closed.
  7. Hang the enema bag up about 2 ft off the ground on a towel rack or door knob. If your enema bag doesn’t have a hook, use a coat hanger. An enema bucket can sit on top of a chair. Don’t hang it up too high as the flow of the coffee will be to forceful.
  8. Alright, time to get a bit intimate… Lie on your right side and insert the nozzle a few inches into your rectum. You can use a bit of coconut oil or olive oil to lubricate the catheter tip for a more gentle insertion.
  9. Release the clamp and let about 1/2 the enema, 2 cups of coffee, flow in and then clamp it shut. Clamp the tubing as soon as there is any discomfort or feeling of fullness. When you have clamped the tubing, remove the catheter tip, and empty your bowels into the toilet when you have to.
  10. Try to leave it in for 12 mins. At first it may be hard to resist the urge to release, but with practice it will get easier. Don’t try to force yourself to hold it in, if you need to go, let it go.
  11. After you have emptied your bowels, do the process again with the remainder of the coffee trying to hold it in so that both your sessions add up to 12-15 minutes.
  12. When you are done, rinse the bag and hang it up to dry. You can clean it with boiling water or hydrogen peroxide, avoid using chemical soaps

If you feel wired or hyper or have heart palpitations after a coffee enema reduce the amount of coffee or reduce the time you retain the brew.

Sometimes you will hear or feel the emptying of the gallbladder with a squirting sensation under your right rib cage. If after a week of daily enemas you have never felt or heard the gall bladder release you can consider making the brew stronger by adding an extra 1/2 tablespoon or use less water to make the brew more potent.


How Often Can I Do A Coffee Enema?

The Gerson Institute treats people suffering from a chronic condition with up to four coffee enemas daily. But we recommend that you don’t exceed more than 1 per day if you don’t have medical supervision or haven’t discussed it with your doctor.

You can do them 2-3 times a week, a few days in a row, or once a weak for maintenance.

Adverse reactions may include intestinal cramping, loss of appetite, fever, electrolyte imbalance, and diarrhea leading to dehydration and constipation. Discontinue enemas if you have any of these adverse reactions.

Always remember to drink plenty of mineral rich water to avoid dehydration and to support the detox process.
