Processed foods are bad, I’m not talking about taste but what they are capable of doing to our health. Let’s face it; processed foods taste delicious. But what makes them taste good tends to be the addition or excess of sugar, sodium, and fat.
The excess of sugar, sodium, and fat often leads to obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and poor digestive health. These foods activate the reward centre in our brains which often leads to more cravings for these processed foods.
Keeping that in mind, most of these foods also consists of various additives. These additives range from preservatives, dyes, flavour and texture enhancers to so much more. In turn, these poor dieting habits and other unhealthy habits such as alcohol consumption and chlorinated drinking water causes a buildup of toxin in the colon.
Over time, the build-up of toxins causes your colon to become unhealthy and become less efficient in expelling waste. As a result, fecal matter is deposited along the walls of your colon. Some of these fecal matters can stay in your colon for months or even years.
Coffee enema is one of the leading alternative treatment to help remove these toxins, and fecal matter builds up. It can help you detox and achieve an elevated level of health.
What is Coffee Enema?
Coffee enema is an alternative treatment process by which coffee is injected via the rectum into the colon for detox purposes. By practicing coffee enema, it can help to relieve constipation, remove toxins and fecal matter that are harmful to our bodies.
The practice of enema dates back to the Ancient Egyptians. However, the implementation of coffee into the enema process is relatively new.
According to sciencebasedmedicine.org, “There are compounds in coffee like kahweol and cafestol which spark production of glutathione, and that is a strong cleansing compound in your body, one that consumers pay good money for when they buy glutathione as a dietary supplement or get IV injections of it. To make more glutathione naturally (by using a coffee enema) is awesome.”
How does coffee enema detox?
The book “Wellness Against All Odds” written by Dr. Sherry Rogers in 1994 states that at the last part of the colon before reaching the rectum, is an “S” shape called the sigmoid colon. By the time the stool reaches that point, the bloodstream has absorbed most of the nutrients. Because the stool contains products of putrefaction at this point, there exist a special circulatory system between the sigmoid and the liver. There is also a direct communication of veins called the enterohepatic circulation. This often causes discomfort before having a bowel movement and you no longer feel the pain as soon as the fecal matter is excreted. This is due to the toxins present in the fecal matter and the enterohepatic circulation coming into play.
The liver detoxifies the toxins that travel through the enterohepatic circulation to the liver. Thus, preventing the toxins to be circulated throughout the rest of the body and all its vital organs.
In the book, it also states that when a coffee enema is used, the caffeine from the coffee is preferentially absorbed into this system and goes directly to the liver where it becomes a very strong de toxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination. This seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues, and bloodstream. The coffee does not go into the systemic circulation unless the enema procedure is done improperly.
The coffee contains some alkaloids that also stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase. The liver uses this enzyme to make detox pathway runs. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione, one of the main conjugation chemicals. Toxins are then eliminated via bile into the small intestine. So in other words, a coffee enema speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances.

~ Benefits ~
1. Detoxifies your colon
The whole process of enema is to wash out the colon, thus cleansing it of harmful bacteria, parasites, heavy metals and fecal matter. Coffee integrated enema further escalates the benefits of the process by including another element to help in the detoxifying process. By removing all the debris and toxins from your digestive tract, it will promote a healthy peristalsis in which a series of organized muscle contractions move food through the digestive tract.
2. Reduces system toxicity
According to Dr. Max Gerson, a pioneer in coffee enema therapy, coffee enema can help stimulate the production of enzyme glutathione S-transferase (GST) in the liver. It can help to boost the production of glutathione S-transferase by 600-700% above normal activity levels. This enzyme reacts with free radicals in the bloodstream and makes them inert. The bile dissolves the inert substances and excrete it through the intestinal tract.
3. Increases bile flow
The increase of bile flow alkalinizes the small intestine and promotes improved digestion. Bile enhances the absorption of fats which is an important part of the absorption of fat-soluble substances, such as vitamins A, D, E and K. Bile increases the absorption of fats by emulsifying fats by reducing its surface tension on the fat droplets. At the same time, it also provides an alkaline medium for the enzyme lipase to act on the fats for it to be absorbed by the body.
If you have signs of skin and eyes that appear yellowish, abdominal pain and swelling, or dark urine color, the odds are your liver is not functioning up to par. Coffee enemas are an excellent way to detoxify your liver and lessen the burden of the liver in its role detoxifying the bloodstream. This allows your liver to function at in its optimal level to remove toxins more efficiently.
4. Coffee enema can improve mental health and your mood
As the coffee enema detoxes the blood stream of the poisons and toxins that reduce oxygen transfer, clog up the intestines and all of which that often makes a person feel sick or tired. After all the toxins are suddenly cleaned out, the sudden increase of oxygen transferred throughout the body through the blood provides sufficient oxygen to the cells in the body for optimal performance. The colon absorbs the caffeine in the coffee and transport it throughout your bloodstream to your central nervous system, where it acts as a stimulant. Its most noticeable effect is heightened alertness, making you feel more awake and less tired.
5. Relieves constipation
The modern diet and lifestyle make constipation one of the most common problems for adults around the globe. If you’re one of the adults, who experiences the difficulty of defecating regularly you should consider coffee enema. Coffee enema provides natural constipation relief by stimulating peristalsis. The process of coffee enema also helps in emptying hardened stool, toxins, and residues which cause bowel discomfort. To obtain the best results, its best advised to reduce the intake of unhealthy foods such as refined flour, hydrogenated fats, alcohol. It is also advised to consume healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables and other foods rich in fibers after the coffee enema treatment.
6. Used to fight cancer
Cancer treatment is terribly difficult for the body, both mentally and physically. Coffee enema can help to remove dead cancer cells and toxins from the colon that may help an individual feel better throughout the treatment. The abundance of antioxidants are essential in fighting and protecting the body from free radicals that may cause cancer or other diseases.

5. Gently pour the coffee into the enema bag.

8. Lie down on your left side with your knees pulled up. Gently insert the nozzle into your rectum, being careful not to injure the colon walls or tissue.
9. Allow the coffee to slowly flow in, use the clamps to regulate the flow of coffee. Instill as much as 1-litre of the coffee into the rectum. However, do not force the coffee in.
10. Once the enema coffee is in your colon, gently remove the nozzle, letting in hang into a clean container. Start your timer. Try to hold the coffee in your colon for 12 minutes.
11. Once you have held the coffee in for 12 minutes, proceed to the toilet to expel the coffee. Relax and take as long as necessary to expel the coffee altogether.
