WHY TAKE A COFFEE ENEMA?
Coffee enemas detoxify the body. They assist the body to heal more deeply when used in conjunction with a detox diet or program.
The coffee enema was first rigorously used as a healing treatment by Dr. Max Gerson, MD, in the 1940s and 1950s, to treat his cancer patients.
Now, after more than 60 years of use in cancer treatment, the coffee enema is finally the subject of serious scientific study through the work of Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez, MD, and the United States Cancer Institute.
How To Take a Coffee Enema
Dee Dee Delkamp of the Optimal Health Center describes the benefits of coffee enemas and gives step-by-step instructions for taking coffee enemas on your own at home.
The therapeutic action of the coffee enema is to improve the abilities of the liver and gallbladder to remove toxins and cancerous metabolic byproducts by stimulating the flow of bile and increasing the enzymatic action of the liver.
Glutathione S-transferases (GST) are a family of enzymes involved in detoxification.
Palmitates in coffee increase the production of GST by 700 times. These powerful free-radical-quenching enzymes assist your liver to more effectively detoxify your entire body.
Additionally, coffee contains the alkaloid theophylline, which dilates blood vessels, increasing blood dialysis across the colon wall.
Increased blood supply to the intestinal tract improves muscle tone and digestion, as well as the elimination processes. Additionally, given that all of our blood passes through the liver every three minutes, the 12-to-15-minute coffee retention enema increases blood flow through the liver, resulting in a form of dialysis and a uniquely effective detoxification.
The health benefits of the coffee enema popularized through Gerson’s work with cancer victims have become well known throughout the alternative health movement. It is now held by many health practitioners that any program that encourages healing, regenerating, rebuilding, weight loss, and detoxification is a healthier program when coffee enemas are used.
