Why Use a Coffee Enema?
Coffee enemas are known to be extremely beneficial for cleansing the body of harmful waste matter, particularly when used in conjunction with a cleansing program that is high in nutritional support. The coffee enema also assists in elimination by bowel cleansing.
Coffee Enemas are also popular for helping to relieve the symptoms of serious illness. Max Gerson, MD, whopioneered the Gerson Therapy, documented excellent results for cancer and other diseases in “Healing the Gerson Way” and other writings. His Gerson Therapy combines coffee enemas with a special diet, juices and supplements. The enemas are an integral part of the process.
If you suffer from constipation an enema can be useful, although it should never replace a bowel movement.
Enema vs Colonic Irrigation?
A coffee enema is aimed at cleansing and improving the liver function, whereas colonic irrigation cleanses the bowel and colon.
How Do They Work?
Dr.Gerson explains that the power of the enema is in its ability to cleanse via the liver/bile. Enemas dilate the bile ducts allowing the liver to release accumulations of waste matter. Harmful waste from faecal matter and free radicals diffuse into the blood and cells of the body. If left, they accumulate and this may lead to disease and premature aging.
The caffeine from the coffee is absorbed into the haemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein which draws fluid out and up into the liver every 4 minutes. If the liver is unable to dump the toxins in the bile, the toxins will accumulate and the body reuses this bile full of harmful waste.
The caffeine causes dilation of blood vessels and bile ducts, while the enzymes in coffee stimulate the liver to produce new bile. The old harmful bile is dumped into the large intestine where it is safely evacuated from the body.
When all the coffee has been absorbed into the bowel and the catheter removed, the coffee should be held for 12-15 minutes before evacuating. This allows your blood time to travel through your liver up to 5 times allowing your liver to continually dump the harmful waste.
Your liver and kidneys are no longer overwhelmed by harmful waste and the liver is then free to process more incoming harmful matter material that has accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream.
Benefits of Coffee Enemas:
Toxin Elimination – The major benefit of the coffee enema, is to enhance elimination of waste matter through the liver.
Cleansing – Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls. A common contributor to ill health is the production and absorption of harmful waste within the small and large intestines. If food is not digested properly, sugars ferment and protein putrefies or rots. Both processes generate harmful chemicals which are then absorbed into the liver.
Stimulates Bile Flow - The coffee enema enhances digestion by increasing bile flow and removes toxins in the large intestine so they will not be absorbed. Most people with health complaints suffer from impaired digestion and production of harmful substances in the intestines.
Stimulates Liver – Coffee enemas are particularly helpful for slow oxidizers. Their liver activity is more sluggish and digestion is usually impaired. Fast oxidizers may have more difficulty retaining the enema.
Further benefits of Enemas are:
- May assist with increased elimination from the bowel
- May help to relieve headaches
- May help to increase alertness
- May help to increase energy
