It happens to everyone at some point or another, especially when you’re just starting to do coffee enemas. On occasion, one may experience difficulty holding the coffee enema for the full recommended 12-15 minutes.
Many enema users want to know the exact coffee: water ratio, but the truth is that it's really completely up to you.
For practiced users, 2 tablespoons of ground coffee to 4 cups (1 quart) of distilled water is fairly standard, but each body is unique and may respond differently.
If you're sensitive to caffeine or are new to coffee enemas, we suggest that you be conservative with your coffee as you start out. Some first-time users have reported feeling nausea or jitters, and starting with a low "dose" may help to mitigate this.
Check the temperature of the enema solution. If it is too hot or too cold, it may be more difficult for the patient to hold. Not to mention, you run the risk of scalding or freezing and an area that is incredibly sensitive.
The solution should always be at body temperature.
Making sure you feel comfortable will go a long way in enabling an effective enema. Some prefer to lie on a towel, others in the bathtub. As long as a toilet is near, find the best spot and position for you.
Since you're immobile for the next foreseeable 15ish minutes, you may as well take advantage of the opportunity for relaxation. Whether it's meditation, reading, watching Netflix, or just resting and breathing–having a stress-free activity may help to alleviate any potential anxiety (or impatience).
Once you're mid-enema, you're not going to be in a position to make any adjustments, so before diving in, check the height of the bucket. Make sure it is less than 18” above your body, or else the coffee will flow too fast.
Trust us, there's nothing like a tidal wave of coffee coming at your bum to ruin the moment.
The clamp on your enema tubing is your friend. While instilling the coffee, don't be afraid to take a pause and stop the flow with the clamp as needed. And don’t forget to breathe!
