The claims of coffee enema to treat cancer were never proven entirely and thus people started using coffee enemas in place of regular enemas to treat constipation.
A coffee enema normally helps in relieving constipation, increase energy and boost immunity.

After performing a coffee enema the immediate result which most people experience is multiple bowel movements. So, if you are someone who is experiencing constipation a coffee enema may help with getting instant relief.

People who swear by coffee enemas claim that regular coffee enemas provide these additional benefits as well:

 

• Increases energy

• Boosts immunity

• Treat autoimmune diseases

• Removes heavy metals from the body

• Stops the overgrowth of yeast

• Treats cancer

• Treats depression

That being said, there is still no evidence to prove or disapprove that coffee enemas are actually helpful in treating any medical conditions mentioned above. If you consider the mainstream medicine, then there is no potential benefit of performing a coffee enema as the human body is well equipped to get rid of toxins and wastes on its own.
Risks associated with coffee enema.

There is some evidence to prove that coffee enemas might be harmful in some cases. For example, if you are caffeine sensitive or if you are taking medicines which counteract with the caffeine then you may experience some problems.

• Nausea

• Bloating

• Cramping

• Bowel perforation

Thus, it is always advisable to get the consent of your doctor before performing an enema.
