While it might seem a little strange to inject your morning brew into your colon, the coffee enema is famed for its detoxification effects. The palmitates in coffee (kahweol and cafestol) enhance the action of glutathione S-transferase, a family of enzymes which play an important role in the bodies detoxification process.
Coffee administered via enema does not go through the digestive system, and will not affect the body the same way as drinking coffee does. When coffee is administered rectally, the hepatic portal veins carry the caffeine directly to the liver.
Coffee contains caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline, substances which cause a dilation of the blood vessels and encourage the flow of bile. Bile is the means by which the liver eliminates stored toxins. Usually, bile (including toxic bile) is reabsorbed 9-10 times by the intestinal walls before it is eliminated in the stool. By taking a coffee enema, which also flushes the contents of the colon, one can ensure the elimination of toxic bile from the system.
The coffee enema is one of the most famous types of enema solutions and is an extremely popular treatment at my clinic. It has become well known due to its promising effects in alternative cancer treatment. The coffee enema was used extensively in the 1940’s, by Dr Max Gerson, in the treatment plan of his cancer patients. There has been more recent research on the use of coffee enemas in cancer treatment through the work of Dr Nicolas Gonzalez. Some of the coffee enema’s fame can also be attributed to the 1930’s Actress Mae West, who attributed her healthy and youthful appearance to her enema regime. Nowadays coffee enemas have become popular by those wishing to maintain a good state of health by assisting the bodies detoxification process.
