I did my coffee enemas whenever I would do a detox juice fast, or when I did liverflushes. They are hard to hold, no doubt about that. But I figured that since I was flushing my liver, that they certainly would provide more detoxification. I would try to hold them for 10 minutes, sometimes I made it, sometimes I didn't. It helped to just lay in the tub on my right side until time to pass it.
