( 4UMF NEWS ) Couple Addicted To Coffee Enemas:

You certainly won't find this at Starbucks.

A Florida couple has a shocking way to get their coffee fix: through multiple daily enemas, which they administer to themselves in their home.

Mike and Trina of St. Petersburg (who haven't given their last name) are addicted to the icky process, they revealed to TLC. They appear on the season premiere of the network's "My Strange Addiction," set to air Feb. 13.
Neither of them drink coffee, but they sometimes spend about five hours a day flushing out their colons with fresh-brewed joe.

"[Once] in a 24-hour period, I probably did nine or 10," Trina said.

"It's funny how our personality goes into it. We have totally different styles," she continued.

"I like a finer, almost espresso grind," Mike said.

"I like it thicker, because I think it's not as messy and drippy," Trina added.

The couple, who have two young children, work from home, and often can't leave the house for long stretches due to their habit.

Trina discovered the bizarre "cure" while researching a solution to stomach problems she'd been having. Her husband soon followed suit. Now they've been hooked on the practice for two years.

Enemas using coffee aren't unheard of, Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa, assistant professor of medicine and a gastroenterologist at NYU Medical Center, told ABCNews.com. Some claim they cleanse the colon and can fight cancer.
But Rajapaksa said she would never recommend them.

"The bottom line is there is not any beneficial effect and there is some risk associated with any enema and, in particular, using coffee," she said.
