Various types of natural detoxification treatments, including colonic treatments and enemas, have been used for thousands of years to help restore digestive function and general health. Some were even mentioned in ancient scripts such as The Dead Sea Scrolls.
A coffee enema is an optional part of a colonic irrigation treatment. During the procedure, a mixture of specially roasted brewed, caffeinated coffee and water is inserted into the colon through the rectum.
Coffee enemas are known to help flush out bacteria, heavy metals, fungus and yeast (like those responsible for candida symptoms, for example) from the digestive tract, including the liver and colon, and also lower inflammation which helps to restore bowel function, increase energy levels and may help to heal from disorders that may have caused problems for years.
Coffee enemas have been around since the late 1800s, used at the time to help speed up healing following surgeries and also to reverse cases of accidental poisoning. They are best known in relation to the Gerson Institute in the 1950s. Max Gerson was a German-American doctor who assisted people to detoxify who had extremely serious health conditions. His program uses an organic plant-based diet, raw juices, and coffee enemas and it is known as the Gerson therapy.
The main purpose for a coffee enema is that of removing toxins accumulated in the liver and removing free radicals from the bloodstream. Apparently the bioavailability of caffeine obtained from coffee enemas is about 3.5 times less than those obtained drinking coffee orally.
Coffee enemas stimulate bile flow and the production of glutathione, which acts like a antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and natural blood cleanser.
Evidence shows that coffee enemas may help with:
- Repairing digestive tissue
- Cleansing the liver
- Improving blood circulation
- Increasing immunity
- Helping with cellular regeneration
- Relieving digestive issues, such as frequent constipation, bloating, cramping and nausea
- Improving gut health
- Improving low energy levels and moods (such as fighting signs of depression)
If you would like to try a coffee enema as part of a colonic treatment just mention it when you book in or when you attend.
