The Coffee Enema: Gerson’s Liver Detoxification Technique
The Coffee Enema may seem like a peculiar therapy but it is actually an important aspect of the famous Gerson therapy that has helped thousands to reverse even serious degenerative diseases. Much of my own son’s complete recovery from asthma while still a young child can be attributed to the coffee enema. Its effectiveness stems from the fact that proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill-health. Moreover, the caffeine in coffee administered as an enema definitely detoxifies the liver, which is the main organ for the regeneration of the body’s metabolism.
What is a Coffee Enema?
For thousands of years, people have been using enemas to cleanse their colons. However, the use of coffee in enema to aid healing and reduce pain dates back only to the First World War. When medical supplies including anesthesia and morphine were low, it was discovered that wounded German soldiers experienced significant pain relief from enema containing the coffee beverage.
Later Dr Max Gerson combined the meticulous application of coffee enemas with a specialized diet, fresh juices and nutritional supplements to produce impressive results in patients with cancer and other degenerative and chronic conditions.
How To Administer The Coffee Enema?
1) Bring 1 liter of purified water to a boil.
2) Drop 2 to 3 rounded tablespoonfuls of ground coffee into the boiling water.
3) Let the solution boil 3 minutes and then simmer 15 minutes.
4) Strain the solution.
5) Cool the solution to body temperature.
6) Pour the cooled solution into an enema bag or bucket. Make sure it fills up the length of the enema tube. Restrain the solution from leaking through the tip by clamping the tube.
7) The individual should lie on his right side, with both legs drawn close to the abdomen, on a mattress protected with a plastic sheet and towel. (The coffee enema goes deeper into the bowel most effectively from the right side.)
8) Instill the coffee enema by having the bottom of the enema bucket elevated about 18 inches above the tube end that is penetrating the anus. Let gravity force the liquid into your rectum and bowel.
9) Retain the liquid in the colon from between 12 to 15 minutes. Then expel it into the toilet.
The 5 Health Benefits of Coffee Enema
For many of us, the body’s natural detoxification function is overwhelmed and inhibited by the continual bombardment by the many stressors in our world. The coffee enema not only aid the elimination of toxin, but serves as an excellent therapeutic agent with users reporting alleviation of pain and discomfort, mental clarity, relief from depression, nervous tension and symptoms of allergies.
There are enormous health benefits from the administration of the coffee enema
1) Reduce toxicity in the Colon
Death begins in the colon. Impacted feces in a sluggish colon rot and putrefy and release toxins into the bloodstream that make their way to the liver, creating an excessive burden on the body.
A toxic colon is also the breeding ground for bacteria and parasitic organisms such as worms and yeasts.
Enemas help to wash out the colon, removing many toxic chemicals, and often nests of parasites and bacteria. Enemas also stimulate the colon to become active, emptying its contents more completely as well as increasing the frequency of healthy bowel movements.
2) Reduce toxicity in the Liver
Coffee enemas open the liver’s bile ducts and help it to release accumulated poisons.The Gerson therapy utilizes the coffee enema to help cancer patients to quickly flush out toxins that are released into the bloodstream from drinking large amounts of organic vegetable juices so as not to over burden the liver.
The caffeine and other compounds found in coffee stimulate the liver”s production of glutathione S-transferase (GST), an enzymatic catalyst known to aid in the removal of toxic bile, neutralize free radicals and detoxifies carcinogens.
3) Pain Relief
Coffee enemas were found to be effective pain relievers in a German army field hospital during World War I when painkillers were scarce. Dr Gerson’s cancer patients also reported pain relief as their livers released cellular toxins. In combination with a high potassium detoxifying diet, the coffee enema is said to have helped Gerson’s cancer patients stop painkilling drugs almost immediately.
4) Prevent Illness
Diseases and infections are manifestations of the body’s toxic internal environment. The deep detoxification effects of regular enemas help to heal existing health conditions and support the body’s innate healing abilities. As the body rids its accumulated waste and toxins, the body’s defenses are gradually restored. A properly functioning body readily fights off infections and is less susceptible to the development of degenerative diseases.
5) Increased Energy and Well Being
The coffee enema’s powerful cleansing effects induce a sense of “lightness”, mental clarity and increased energy. It effectively helps the sluggish, highly toxic body to dramatically reduce the body burden leaving the person feeling more energetic and optimistic.
Coffee enemas are known to help individuals with gallstones, liver problems, digestive problems, low energy, auto-immune diseases and cancer. They are used in almost every natural health retreat center around the world for their remarkable ability to cleanse and detoxify in a short period of time.
