I have been on much longer than that. This is a newer profile I started at that time. I should have stated that, but I do stand by what I said above. I meant no harm, I assure you.

I think the people at Starbucks are going to be really confused.

I know a lot of these responses come off as rude, but a lot of the reason is that those of us that have been on this site a long time already have read the research on things like cleanses and enemas. The reason that people take these things as a joke is because they are. Your body, even when it isn't at it's healthiest, is better at cleaning itself than anything you can be sold, anything a Kardashian uses, and anything that you can put up your bum. The reason it evacuates everything is the huge caffeine kick that comes from putting the coffee almost directly into your bloodstream. You'd experience a bowel movement than made you wonder if you had any bones left in your body if you went a long time without caffeine and ingested it the erm, conventional way. Yes, I know that it is used as an alternative treatment for colon cancer, definitely not a cure. Unless a doctor, a real doctor, tells you to do this (and they should probably teach you how at the very least, then just don't do it. That being said, I'm a fan of Eastern medicine and proven homeopathic treatments, but this is simply not the way to go. Of course you'll feel great right after you do it, and maybe you'll drop some water weight because caffeine is a diuretic, but just think about how natural it is to read something on the internet and then start consuming your morning joe through your bum. Respectfully, good luck; and maybe try the amazing food that boost your digestive processes and see how that goes. My terrible skin was very much improved when I took out some of the junk food and added some of the good food.


^^This. Thank you for very respectfully saying everything that needed to be said.

I hope, that since the OP has decided to try this, that they'll come back, check in and let us know if it really jump started the weigh loss process.

I prefer cappuccino, lots of steamed, foamy milk, and some powdered chocolate.

In a cup.

Taken orally.

While I stand by my original naysayer attitude, I am curious to see how it goes, and I do hope it helps you. Outside of some nursing school ages ago, I'm not qualified to guess jack squat about what it will or won't do. It doesn't seem like it would hurt though, barring maybe a caffeine addiction and the headaches you can get from withdrawal. Best of luck.

Are you at least using cheap coffee? laugh
February 19, 2013 9:39 AM

Thanks for all the responses. After some more research I have decided to cycle Coffee Enemas for 2 weeks and Green Tea Enemas for another 2 weeks. I hope this really jump- starts my weight loss and kill all the parasites in my body. Thanks again everyone.


It won't do any of those things. You're completely wasting your time, money and comfort. It's fine if you like to do that, but don't claim it has any health benefits what so ever.

You don't have any parasites. It's extremely unlikely. If you do, see a doctor. A doctor doesn't use this method for removing parasites.

Whatever comes out during your enema/colon cleanse, would've come out later that day or the next anyway. All you're achieving is a slight risk of irritating yourself.

I've read that coffee enemas are good for acne, cure for cancer and yep you guessed it, WEIGHT loss. Anyone out there ever tried it? Success? Benefits? I will be adding coffee enemas to my morning ritual instead of my usual cup of coffee.

Thanks in advance.


You may have watched too much futurama... why would anyone want to do a suppository that was unnecessary, at least I know I wouldn't want to. Just increase zinc intake through diet or supplementation and wash your skin two or three times a day and use a good spf moisturizer. Drink black coffee to cure cancer? and coffee can also decrease your appetite (hence why they make it into a pill type supplement as well).

So definitely wouldn't want to put it up my bum.

But wouldn't that prevent you from a coffee enema?

don't you think that bacon goes well with everything?
February 19, 2013 10:00 AM
Doing enemas constantly leads to chronic constipation becausae your body won't realize that it has to empty itself without an enema over time. This is very dangerous and can cause multiple health conditions including, and up to death. If you do the enema wrong you can puncture your rectum or the intestines which leads to fecal matter getting into the bloodstream causing sepsis and death. I would urge the OP NOT to do this at all!

A quick search of Google Scholar with the words "coffee enema" produced a series of research articles from around the world (US, Canada, Korea, etc.) discussing the damage caused to patients by coffee enemas (polymicrobial enertic septicemia, acute colitis, proctocolitis, burns, physical damage to the rectum/colon (perforation), etc.). It appears that most content that appeared in support of the system at all was from Gerson or his immediate associates, and has not been supported by broader investigation. I am not an MD, the therefore unqualified to give medical advice, but I strongly urge you to speak with your doctor before beginning a coffee enema regimen.
