Autoimmune sufferers and health enthusiasts swear by coffee enemas. If the idea of pumping organic java up your rectum is off-putting to you, consider that this treatment has been around for a long time, and is one of the best ways to remove toxins.
In fact, the earliest known documentation of the treatment is in the Edwin Smith (circa 1600 B.C.) and Ebers (circa 1550 B.C.) papyri, ancient Egyptian medical texts. Since the coffee enema’s earliest days, many healthcare practitioners across the globe have considered the practice to be a staple treatment for their patients.
Coffee enemas have historically been used to treat ailments ranging from cancer to depression. They have also been cited to:
- Detoxify and improve glutathione levels
- Ease PMS symptoms, such as cramping and bloating
- Reduce anxiety
- Improve digestion
- Banish Candida
- Boost energy
- Contribute to hormone regulation
- Improve mental clarity and focus
- Reduce chronic pain
- Improve skin health
Dr. Raymond Tolmos, a chiropractic internist at Frontier Spine and Health Care, often recommends coffee enemas to supplement other treatments for internal disorders, such as gastrointestinal issues, autoimmune conditions, and weight loss.
“Coffee enemas provide many health benefits that you cannot find anywhere else. For certain patients, they play an invaluable role in their healing.”
How Do Coffee Enemas Work?
Toxins are everywhere. They’re in the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. As such, it’s crucial that we help our bodies detoxify. Fortunately, coffee enemas are among the most effective methods of detoxing.
When introduced to the colon, coffee is absorbed into the bloodstream and carried to the liver, promoting a beneficial increase in the production of glutathione, which is an antioxidant enzyme that plays a major role in driving toxins from the body. Detoxification of the liver, however, is only beneficial if the toxins have somewhere to go.
Lindsea Burns, nutritional therapy practitioner at the Atlas Health Care Center, explains:
“Our liver is doing the most work and it has the least access to the outside world… We can support the liver all we want, but it’s only doing the cleaning. It’s not taking out the trash. It’s also important to support the gallbladder, which is basically how the liver takes out the trash.”
Burns continues: “The coffee enema can actually stimulate… the biliary ducts [causing them] to open [and] release toxins into the intestinal tract for excretion. So we’re able to support the body internally to do all the work in detox and then we also have a way to help the body eliminate those toxins.”
In short, a coffee enema is a great way to “take out the trash” and refresh your body.
