I wanted to know if anyone had experince with using more coffee in an enema than suggested? For exaample, the largest recommendation I have seen says 1 Tbsp. per. cup of water. Since the most water I have seen recommends 4 cups, that would be a maximum of 4 Tbsp. of coffee per enema. Has anyone tried using more than this? Does anyone know if using more coffee would be beneficial?
Thanks for the reply. I started out using 1 quart water to 3 Tbsp. coffee per the gerson protocol but quickly increase it to 1 quart to 4 tbsp. coffee per seeking health's directions (I use their coffee). I have read on many sites to start with 1/2 Tbsp. per cup and increase to full dosage, usually 3 Tbsp. as tolerated. Since I was having no trouble with 4 Tbsp. per quart, I increased the coffee to 8 Tbsp. and felt no difference. I have read that you should start with a small amount of coffee due to some people being more sensitive to the caffiene. I do not drink coffee so I have no experience as to the affects but I know it causes on to get jittery. I have always felt the same before the enema as after, even with my recent use of 8 Tbsp. per the quart of water. I just can't seem to find any info. to say that more is better or one should not go over x amount.
I have often read the amount of coffee should be 2 tablspoons. I find this is the amount that is most often recommended for one to work up to, I am trying to find out if more is beneficial or not, and why. I see on Dr. Wilsons page about coffee enemas (http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/COFFEE%20ENEMA.HTM) under "Chapter 5 A Coffee Enema procedure", he says: 5. Some people can do up to four enemas daily, each with up to two tablespoons of coffee in each one. Others cannot handle this much coffee. So be careful. If in doubt,use only up to 4 tablespoons of coffee daily, even if you do four enemas per day. I am trying to find any information that talks to the reasoning behind the suggested amount. Going off the above quote and many others like it, it seems that this amount is based on one's ability to "handle" it. So if any one has information regarding the reasoning for the recommended amount of coffee to be used, please let me know. Thanks.
