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.
