Coffee enemas were the gateway tool for me learning how to detox. They are powerful for so many reasons… even though they have stigma- why would want to put coffee in your behind? I’m going to tell you a bit about my experience with them. How they transformed my life in many ways. I do feel they need to be used with responsibility and they are not a cure for any disease. The healing I have undergone with them is my own experience I wish to share to shed some light…..
1.The coffee enema is known for its effective way of stimulating bile flow and liver chi and stimulating the liver to make the enzyme glutathione s-transferase – this antioxidant will flush the body and will detoxify it systemically. Glutathione is very powerful for detoxification -its made in the body’s cells and produced in the liver- the palmitic acid in the coffee stimulates the enzymes to convert to glutathione. Dr.Jay Davidson says that Glutathione S-transferase, and enzyme produced by the liver, has been shown to increase by 600-700% after just one enema, according to research from the University of Minnesota (1).
The caffeine from the coffee travels thru the hepatic portal vein in the large intestine to the liver, which opens the methylation(detoxification) pathways. I found that without the enema during deep detoxes – the detox would not be as effective. The glutathione will detoxify the body, scavenging free radicals. The coffee enema will do this. The glutathione neutralizes and detoxes heavy metals, parasites, bacteria, viruses, mucus, and stimulates the immune system.
2.The coffee enema is a wonderful tool to add to any parasite, candida, lyme/bacterial, viral, heavy metal, and cancer protocol- really anyone with a chronic illness will benefit from weekly or regular enema use. I was introduced to CEs during my first real parasite detox around 6 years ago, which was pretty difficult. *It is a very long story and will be in a blog of it’s own–stay tuned.
When the body goes through die-off symptoms you can feel horrible- all the dying pathogens, not only parasites, leave waste, “die-off”. Your body will then need to exit them somehow. The major detox organs are the liver, spleen, kidneys, lymph, sinus, colon and skin. When the liver is clogged and not converting enzymes and filtering toxins well and the other organs get backed-up and toxins build up- it can result in a systemic issue- there are many dis-eases that modern medicine labels as disease- when in fact, it can be a result of toxins accumulating because the basic sewage system of the body is not functioning well. Names like “autoimmunity”, cancer, parkinsons, and autism-to name a few, can be a result of manmade illness. It’s important to note that the nervous system and gut are linked via the portal vein- so congestion in the colon and back-up toxins can inevitably result in dis-eases of these systems.
Luckily the CE will help flush out heavy metals, parasites and mucus that will reside in your intestines, liver, and spleen. It will take off the pressure the body undergoes during deep purging- especially if you are on an anti-parasite or Lyme protocol. These illnesses can be deep spiritual work- detoxing alone can be a transformational experience because the body becomes much lighter and the heavy debris gets flushed- we still need to deal with the underlying root issue. Which at least detoxification can help us get to that.
Parasite cleansing can be a long arduous road- and many will not tell you how long it can be. I say yes it actually starts with gut health. If you have a strong microbiome then parasites cannot take hold as well and your detox period could be shorter. It’s what Dr. Robert Cassar calls “terrain modification”. The healing and flushing of the detox organs on a regular basis so that pathogens do not take hold.
3. Helps you transition your diet and heal gut issues. By eating non-organic food, eating too much of the wrong kind of dairy, too much factory-raised meat, farmed fish, corn, soy, gluten, bad oils, processed foods and even too much Vitamin A can be stored in the liver. Eating this type of diet will lead to an acidic leaky gut, unbalanced microbiome, and clogged lymphatic system. Thou with great care in the food choices, choosing organic, we are better able to digest nutrients and regularly eliminate toxins.
A great way to begin is add a elimination diet (vegan gluten free diet). Take 2 weeks and eliminate meat, dairy, gluten/breads/pastries, refined sugars, bad oils(oils that are not flax, olive oil, coconut oil), any processed ingredients like dressings and sauces that are store-bought- and most importantly switch to organic. To help get out round-up (glyphosate) not in such a concentrated amount in your system, is to switch to organic. It is worth the extra money. Glyphosate is now considered one of the most insidious chemicals that will destroy the gut flora and tissue. In my opinion, Monsanto’s Round-Up is adding to, if not the manufacturer of many neurological diseases, more Autism, and new and unidentified parasitic type diseases– man-made diseases. Combined with heavy metals sprayed in the atmosphere and in water, over-use of vaccines, and biosludge on our food, there is no surprise there would be a plethora of mystery diseases.
The elimination diet combined with CEs will help you take out some of common food triggers that are causing gut inflammation and you will most likely begin to feel much better- thou you can get a herxheimer reaction (toxins coming out and making you feel ill) but this is part of the detox process. What is wonderful is that the coffee enema will help a lot of the digestive distress, headaches, fever, and expelling of parasites and lymphoid tissue that detox can bring out. CEs also have a anti-inflammatory response on the body- so chronic headaches, depression, anxiety, joint pain, back pain, neurological symptoms, digestive upset, etc can all benefit.
I have a lot of experience doing CEs. I have found, like I said earlier, that is totally necessary sometimes to clean out the intestines and get the liver functioning well. Enemas will pull out unrecognisable things- but as we say “always better out than in!” I cannot stress enough that in times like this with man-made diseases on the rise we all need to find methods to get out invasive pathogens and metals, and allow the lymph to flow.
How to make a Coffee Enema:
First off we want to use a lightly roasted coffee that is organic. I recommend Wilson’s Coffee or Premier Research Labs Coffee. It needs to be lightly roasted to keep the enzymes and oils activated.
I use a enema bucket with a hose- you can easily buy kits made by these companies. For each enema you want around 2-3 tablespoons. Boil filtered water around a half a quart of for around 15 min. (I use Crystal Quest Water Filtration). Take off stove and strain. Add concentrate to another half of cool filtered water. Add celtic or himalayan salt- 1 teaspoon. Volume should be around a quart after you add the fresh water to the concentrate.
You can also add a dropperful of an anti-infective herb tincture that targets your situation. Herb recommendations: berberine, dragon blood, olive leaf, wormwood, blackwalnut, goldenseal, colloidal silver, eucalyptus oil, etc.
You can start small and take in as much as you can first few times. You want to retain it for 15 min. Lay on right side of tub or on back and relax- breathe thru mouth if the cramps are strong. Its needs to be retained to fully circulate to the liver. After 15 min get up and release.
Adding this to your self-care regime will make a lot of difference- even if just used for short periods. Happy enema-ing! And I would love to hear any questions or comments you may have!
