Couple injects bucket full of fresh-brewed joe into their colons up to 100 times a month

Tina and Mike are “addicted” to coffee enemas.

In what might be the most head-turning episode of TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” yet, a Florida couple has admitted to being “addicted” to coffee enemas. Mike and Trina, who declined to give their last name, need coffee enemas on a daily basis to function normally. Without irrigating her colon with a bucket full of fresh-brewed joe, Trina ends up in the emergency room with kidney stones. The couple reportedly gives themselves a coffee enema up to four times a day and up to 100 times a month.

Trina recently told ABCNews.com that she started the coffee enemas because she was suffering from digestive problems. She said that injecting the bucket full of fresh-brewed joe into her colon gives her a sense of “euphoria,” which would make sense given the number of capillaries and blood vessels in the lower¬†intestine.
