Optimal Health Network offers top-quality coffee enema kits for sale in our online store, along with expert info from Kristina Amelong, a certified colon hydrotherapist, for effective administration of home enemas. Here we cover how to take an enema, whether to use a bag or bucket, the best coffee to use, and the differences in benefit between a single coffee enema and performing a coffee enema as part of an enema series.

What Does a Coffee Enema Do?

A properly performed coffee enema greatly facilitates the release of toxins by:

  • stimulating the liver, a main organ of detoxification, to produce more bile. Bile is a bodily fluid that has a role in fat digestion and into which many toxins, both internally and externally generated, are dissolved for removal from the body through the gallbladder, small intestine, and colon.
  • causing the muscles of the bile duct to relax, opening the duct widely to produce a large flow of bile from the gallbladder into the small intestine (where you should have a binding agent present -- chlorophyll -- to tightly bind the toxins to prevent reabsorption). This allows the liver to rid itself of many toxins quickly, freeing it to process more blood-transported toxins from throughout the body. A systemic detoxification effect and greater overall well-being results. All the blood in your body passes through the liver about every three minutes.
  • dilating blood vessels via effects of the coffee's theophylline and theobromine, further increasing blood flow to the liver.
  • increasing production of glutathione s-transferase (GST), a key detoxification enzyme, by 600% to 700%, via action of coffee's palmitic acid. GST shuttles toxins for binding with glutathione, which neutralizes them and carries them out of the body in the bile.
  • speeding transit of waste through the colon.

Conducting Coffee Enemas at Home

Ensure you have proper supplies, including organic, air-roasted coffee. The more you perform coffee enemas at home, the easier it becomes to hold the enema for 12 or more minutes, especially if you deliver the coffee slowly. If you experience periodic peristaltic contractions of the colon, continue holding the enema through each contraction if you can do so comfortably. If you feel significantly strained or feel any form of pain, go to the toilet, allow the enema to be expelled, and start again. When performing the coffee enema, take in 1 cup to 1 quart at a time and hold for 12-15 minutes. Coffee adds an additional level of therapy to your colon cleanse by assisting your liver and gallbladder.

Client Testimonial

"For the first time, I managed to get in one quart of coffee by going slowly as follows: The bucket was placed about one foot above my body lying down. I let the flow go for 10 seconds every minute for 15 minutes. Thereafter I kept the coffee in for 10 minutes before evacuating."   ~ Henri L.

Enema Bags vs. Enema Buckets

Coffee enemas can be taken using either a bucket or a silicone bag. Our silicone enema bag kits include heavy-duty S-hooks, which make it easy to hang your bag from a shower curtain or doorknob. Our stainless steel buckets are sturdy and can be set on any flat surface such as a sink edge or an end table. Both our enema buckets and our enema bags are easy to clean and dry. The enema bags are easy to store and travel with, whereas the enema buckets take up more space. The stainless steel buckets are very high in quality, and their price reflects the craftsmanship that goes into making them. The silicone bags are also higher in quality than most enema bags, and their price reflects this quality, however they are more cost-effective than the stainless steel buckets.

Which Is Right for Me: Enema Bag or Enema Bucket?

Whether your preference is a silicone classic fountain enema bag or a stainless steel bucket, Optimal Health Network has you covered. We offer educational resources to better use and understand your enema system. Optimal Health Network's silicone enema bags come with a lifetime warranty!

Single Coffee Enema vs. Enema Series

Clinically, the enema series is more effective than a single enema. The first two enemas in the series prepare the colon by emptying out toxic byproducts. The purpose of the coffee enema (third enema) is to absorb the coffee into the portal vein**, and we recommend that you don't also absorb the very toxic byproducts that you are trying to get out of the body. The enema series was created to optimize the therapeutic benefits of the coffee enema.

** The hepatic portal vein is a blood vessel that conducts blood from the gastrointestinal tract and spleen to the liver. The liver receives about 75% of its blood through the hepatic portal vein.

Why Choose the Enema Series Kit?

Clinically, the enema series is more effective than a single enema.
