Someone a while back asked about problems with coffee enemas. Here's a link about a case of that for anyone interested. http://www.nature.com/ajg/journal/v105/n1/full/ajg2009505a.html.
 
Also, anectodally, a older woman, a friend of a friend of mine died from a severely ulcerated colon. She had done coffee enemas for years.

Coffee is the worst thing I can drink for my colitis, I can't imagine anyone thinking it would improve things.

LOL.

Just the thought of Starbuck's coffee makes me want to puke....no matter which end it would be administered.

Salofalk made symptoms worse
Imuran, 100 mg · Alesse · Folic acid, 5 mg · Multi-vitamin, Vit. B, C, D, Calcium
Avoids: red meat, alcohol, high fat, fried, salt, sugar, dairy

uh, yeah I don't think so...it is amazing what many of us do out of desperation due to IBD, it's flippin' sad really :(
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
~~~~~~~~My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)~~~~~~~~

quincy,

Ya know, Starbucks really is missing the boat. They should officially expand into the colonoscopy prep business.

Hey, great idea!!! but the experience wouldn't be a good one for me...I think i'll stick to the gallon prep..lol.

One interesting thing about Starbucks...at least one, anyway. My husband, on his way to work around 6 PM went to get a decaf mocha latte or something like that...they don't sell it, only in the mornings. Say what???? How arse-backwards is that?

There would also be improved efficiency. A 24 oz. drink at Starbucks could accomplish what a gallon of prep accomplishes.

No decaf at night? Truly bizarre. Cops working at night live on caffeine.
