Dr Oz: Coffee Enema Dehydration & Sepsis Risk

A Coffee Enema could dehydrate you and cause havoc with your electrolytes. The enema can distend the rectum as you absorb the coffee into the body. Dr Oz said that this absorption confuses the kidneys and intestines, sometimes creating electrolyte shifts that can lead to irregular heartbeats, and there are deaths reportedly related to this practice.

What else do Coffee Enema users need to know? The users from Dr Oz’s audience said that they insert the enema catheter 18 inches or more inside the rectum. There, fluid stores for 10 minutes or longer. Dr Oz said that you could also accidentally tear your intestinal wall, leaving an opportunity for bacterial infection such as Sepsis.

    18 inches?!? That’s so incorrect! An enema tip is inserted 2-3 inches, which is equal or less than a Fleet tip. Also, no formal report of someone dying from coffee enemas has ever been filed. I’ve been doig them for over 3 years and haven’t had a single issue and I have chronically low sodium well before I ever started enemas. Just like in the hot yoga room, get plenty of electrolytes before and after coffee enemas.
    Do your research before you write an article. You lost all credibility here.

      Some people use colon tubes which may be that long and longer. Even using a colon tube I believe the risk is relatively low.

    I agree with Cincygirl1, coffee enemas have saved many lives and helped heal many of all sorts of afflictions for years, do your research before U make claims, show one death report since U said they are reported?? U lost credibility here also. Thank U Cincygirl1, El Diablo doesn’t want people well..

    18 inches, LOL, what bogus nonsense, LOL.. The sad thing is that some ignorant soul might actually believe all these lies…

  4. Grace says

    I’d like to see the actual numbers behind deaths caused by coffee enemas. Drs always scare ppl off with “death” occurrences same as they say about overdosing on vitamins, which has not been recorded. Please do your thorough research first. Oh ya… it helps ppl without going to a doc so of course a doc would say this.
