The Coffee Enema: How and When to Do It
Using enemas for therapeutic purposes has been around since ancient times and is referenced in both the Dead Sea Scrolls and a third-century Aramaic manuscript. There are many things you can use in an enema like probiotics, essential oils, and chlorophyll; but my favorite and probably the most popular ingredient to use in a therapeutic enema, is coffee.
Using coffee dates back to World War I, when it was discovered that administering coffee rectally provided pain relief. This prompted studies which showed that coffee dilated bile ducts, restored the liver, and released toxic bile and waste products into the digestive tract to be carried out of the body. Since then, coffee enemas have been shown to help with many health conditions like arthritis, depression, cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
In my personal experience, doing a regular enema healed the scar tissue in my intestine, was huge in healing my crohn’s disease, tackled a lingering candida issue, and regenerated my bowel function. Most importantly, it saved me from having to have one of those beautifully attractive colostomy bags that every 20-year-old wants to have when they’re looking for Mr. Handsome Man.
Dating back to approximately around the time of World War I, coffee has been utilized in enemas by physicians as a method to help detoxify the body of harmful toxins and improve illnesses and conditions. While additional research studies are still necessary to determine their effectiveness today, many individuals still use coffee enemas to rid their bodies of these undesired toxins.
