8 Qualities You Didn’t Know About Coffee Enemas
The origins of coffee enemas were referenced in the dead sea scrolls and Merc Manual. In fact, Ancient Egyptians used them for healing and WWI physicians in place of morphine. So, what’s all the hype about? Let’s explore the 8 qualities that you possibly didn’t know about coffee enemas.
1. Liver detox
Every three minutes, the entire body’s volume of blood passes through the liver. Toxins are removed, concentrated and excreted in bile. Coffee enemas cause increased bile evacuation leading to profound detoxification and cleansing of the blood.
2. Gall bladder detox
The gallbladder is taken along for the ride and a surprising number of people discover gallstones in the toilet
3. Colon Cleanse
The outer layer of the colon is peeled away by the acidity of the coffee allowing for better nutrient absorption. In addition candida, parasites or other inhabitants of an unhealthy microbiome are washed away along with that outer cell layer.
The activity of important antioxidant enzymes have been recorded as increasing in activity as much as 600%.
5. Pain relief
For reasons that are not entirely clear, coffee enemas lead to almost instantaneous pain relief. They were used for this reason in WWI when there was only enough morphine for the OR and it is still listed in some medical texts.
6. Cancer cure
Coffee enemas gained modern attention when Doctor Gerson DDS used a combination of enemas, supplements and diet to cure himself of pancreatic cancer. Some research seems to support his claim that when the liver is at optimal function cancer cells are chewed up and spit out.
7. Requires caution
Critics of coffee enemas cite danger of electrolyte imbalance. The colon is a known site of electrolyte absorption (a reason diarrhea can be deadly); however, coffee is rich in potassium so the risk of an imbalance is minimal to none.
8. Contains multiple components
A typical coffee enema kit contains:
- organic coffee
- distilled or reverse osmosis water
- enema bag and tubing
- towels/pillow or other bedding to be comfortable on floor for 15 minutes
