I just started coffee enemas two weeks ago at the advice of my naturopath. I was getting pretty bad die off herxing from the essential oils that I'm using against the lyme & company (I'm deathly allergic to antibiotics so, those aren't an option for me).
I've done six of them so far and I can tell you that the first one for me was the "worst", as far as back cramps and nausea that occurred during the hour following the release of the coffee. I made 6-7 more trips to the bathroom. However, when all was said and done, I hadn't felt that great in a long time !!! I think my body was dumping a ton of toxins that it had been hanging onto during the herxing.
As mentioned, I've done several since then. The second and third coffee enemas resulted in maybe two trips to the bathroom after releasing the coffee. And the one I just did about
30 minutes ago, resulted in one trip back to the bathroom after releasing the coffee.
Only the first enema produced back cramps (bowels) and nausea.
I run two tablespoons of organic, caffeinated coffee through my coffee maker with water up to the "6" marker on the side. Pour 12 ounces into a 64 ounce plastic tumbler and put four ice cubes in it to get it to cool down to about
body temperature. The melted ice brings it back up to 16 ounces. Then I use an enema bulb (with plenty of lube) to infuse. I can hold 12 ounces for a good 15 minutes.... 16 ounces I can hang onto for about
Go slow, only infuse as much as you're comfortable with.
I'm SO glad I didn't baulk at my naturopath's suggestion of coffee enemas....!!! They have detoxed me to the point of noticing: sharper vision, decreased light/sound sensitivity, decreased muscle tension, decreased neck stiffness, decreased joint pain, decreased brain fog, etc. etc.... all of which has led to much improved sleep.
As with everything in life... "your mileage may vary."
Give it a try. You've got nothing to lose but "toxic crap". :)
