Coffee Enemas are a subject I have considered writing about for some time. The thought of them once made me cringe because I couldn’t picture myself doing anything like that until fibromyalgia pain and chronic fatigue made me make a silent promise myself, that I would try one day soon. Fast forward 6 months later after flair up pain I couldn’t shake, forced me to get down to business. I was kinds scared but after having done my research along with learning how they are done at home I figured, what the heck! it couldn’t be any worse than how tired and sore I was already feeling. I worked up my nerves, did one and … haven’t looked back since.
Dumping years of old toxins, heavy metals and no telling what else from my liver by way of my, colon, intestines, and bloodstream gave me a buzz of energy that stayed with me for 2 weeks straight. I will never forget the first time.
Eating well is great thing but we come in contact with toxins and chemicals in the air we breathe, electronics, radiation from cell phones and othat things that make their way through our skin.

A Note Of Confidence
Before you start thinking this is absolutely crazy, Coffee enemas have been used as a healing remedy for the last 100 years. They are particularly well known as part of the cancer treatment protocol with Gerson Therapy.
Various types of natural detoxification treatments, were even mentioned in ancient historical scripts describing how ordinary ingredients and materials, like food and water, helped heal illnesses.
The Liver’s Purpose
Let’s first talk about the function of the liver since it plays a vital role in detoxification of the body and when your body goes through detox, the first time, you are removing junk that has been a part of you, for a lifetime.
Weighing in at around 3.3 lbs and is 6 inches in width, It’s home is in the upper right abdomen under the ribs and below the diaphragm and holds up to 13 percent of a person’s blood supply. It performs about 500 tasks to keep the body healthy and works in accordance with the digestive system.
Anything you eat or consume gets is absorbed by the blood and goes straight to the liver.
The liver knows when to detoxify and it does so through the urine or stool as it stores nutrients and releases them back into the bloodstream at the right time. It keeps the amount of sugar in the bloodstream leveled out and gets rid of the rest.
Is that it also breaks down fats that are eaten, converting excess carbohydrates and protein into forms that are stored for later. The liver produces bile which removes waste and toxins from the and gives the stool it’s color.
Now that you have a quick rundown about the function of the liver, now we can move straight to the subject of the importance of coffee enemas and doing them at home.
What Is A Coffee Enema And Why Do People Do Them?
A coffee enema is a type of colon cleanses used in alternative medicine. During the procedure, a mixture of brewed, caffeinated coffee (organic green coffee) is my favorite) and water is inserted into the colon through the rectum. Coffee enemas are thought to stimulate bile flow and the production of glutathione, a detoxifying antioxidant.
Who Is Max Gerson?
A 1920s German scientist used his therapy as a treatment for migraine headaches and tuberculosis. In 1928, he began to use it as a supposed treatment for cancer. Gerson said that coffee enemas had positive detoxification effects that contributed to the recovering health of his patients. After Gerson’s death, his daughter Charlotte Gerson continued to promote the therapy, founding the “Gerson Institute” in 1977.
As I stated earlier, even though coffee enemas are not new, they might be new to you, like they were to me a couple of years ago. Before that time, I had never even heard of them. As someone who is not a coffee drinker and doesn’t even like the smell of coffee, (yes I know I’m weird, so I’ve been told) I couldn’t imagine drinking it daily, let alone doing them at home until I did.
