Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Because I am and was raised in an East Asian home, I am very familiar with and even comfortable with alternative and non-traditional approaches to medicine and healing. That being said, as a medical doctor I am also bound to principles of science and the ethics of the Hippocratic oath, which in a nutshell states, "first do no harm." With that as my background context, here's my answer. Coffee enemas have never been proven to provide any tangible benefits and in fact have implicated in a number of dangerous and harmful side effects. The FDA has issued warnings in the past, strongly recommending NOT using coffee enemas. May I answer any other questions for you?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
