COFFEE ENEMA STEPS
Why in the world would someone use coffee in an enema?
Coffee enema steps for
detoxification are combined with a special diet, juices and other supplements
and may be the secret in reversing cancer using the Gerson Therapy. It removes
toxins, is inexpensive, and can be done at home without special equipment.
In treating cancer
alternatively, according to Dr. Gerson coffee enemas are a necessity for
removing toxins, thereby healing the body of cancer. A coffee enema is one of
the most effective colonics as it affects the colon, liver, and blood stream.
It is the blood stream that dumps the toxins and mutated cancer cells into the
Why in the world would someone use coffee in an enema?
That is the question I asked when Elaine suggested I do the coffee
enema steps. Yet when I got over my initial resistance, I quickly saw the
benefits of coffee enema steps.
I have since recommended coffee enema steps to many. Most of them
have told me how wonderful they feel after getting over the initial thought of
doing enemas. Treating cancer alternatively is helping each of us look at things
we can do to improve our health. Indeed, the coffee enema steps are most helpful
for many types of conditions.
Enemas are an ancient form of hydrotherapy.
They have been used for hundreds of years for mechanically cleansing the colon.
Enemas and colonic irrigation used to be routine procedures in hospitals. There
are many types of enemas used for varying purposes.
Coffee enemas were first popularized by Max
Gerson, MD, author of A Cancer Therapy - Results of
50 Cases. Dr. Gerson pioneered nutritional therapy for cancer and
other diseases with excellent results. His therapy combined coffee enemas steps
with a special diet, juices and other supplements.
The coffee enema steps were an integral part
of the therapy.
The major benefit of the coffee enema, Dr.
Gerson said, is to enhance elimination of toxins through the liver. Indeed,
endoscopic studies confirm that coffee enemas increase bile output.
A person was given a coffee enema while an
endoscope monitored the entrance to the common bile duct. Within minutes of
administering the enema, bile flow increased.
Increased bile flow also alkalinizes the small intestine and
promotes improved digestion. Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large
intestine, helping clean the colon walls.
A common contributor to ill health is the
production and absorption of
toxins within the small and large intestines. If food is not digested
properly, sugars ferment and protein putrefies or rots.
Both processes generate toxic chemicals which
are then absorbed into the
The coffee enema enhances digestion by
increasing bile flow and removes toxins in the large intestine so they will not
Most people with health complaints suffer from
impaired digestion and production of toxic substances in the intestines.
Coffee enemas are particularly helpful for
slow oxidizers. Their liver activity is more sluggish and digestion is usually
Fast oxidizers may have more difficulty
retaining the enema. The procedure described below is really a coffee implant
rather than an enema, because it involves only two to three cups of water. Using
a quart of water may be more difficult to retain for some individuals.
However, the use of a quart of water, and
making sure the water reaches most of the large intestine, is more helpful for
cleansing the colon of accumulated waste material.
If one suspects severe bowel toxicity or in
cases of serious illness, quart enemas are preferable, at least to start with.
Dr. Gerson recommended the coffee enema up to
6 times daily for severely ill cancer patients. His patients continued them for
up to several years with no ill effects. They should not be needed for more than
two or three years, although many people have continued to take them for a
number of years without problems.
I began with coffee enemas up to 5 -6 times daily for 2 years. I
then reduced to 4 coffee enemas daily and after 6 years I have reduced to 2 – 3
coffee enemas daily.
What I am finding is my body is taking over its own
responsibilities and I am often having bowel movements prior to the coffee
That is exciting to me to know that my body is healing and
demanding to do its own function. One may ask why I am continuing with coffee
I know that my liver is still in it’s final stages of healing. I
am willing to be patient with my body and continue to detoxify my liver.
One may experience a slight rush from the
caffeine, but it is not like drinking coffee, which I do not recommend. Coffee
enemas taken in the evening may interfere with sleep.
However sleep has never been a challenge for me. Each person is
different. Adjust the times you do your coffee enemas to best facilitate your
If performed properly, coffee implants do not
cause habituation, constipation or any rectal problems. Dr. Gerson did not see
any important negative effects of coffee enemas in those who need them.
Difficulties occasionally arise if one has
hemorrhoids. In these cases, extra care is needed in inserting the enema tip.
Some people with hemorrhoids find the enemas irritating.
I found that making up a solution of Slippery Elm helped immensely
in soothing and healing any irritations of the rectum.
(See Recipes for Slippery Elm).
A small number of people are unable to retain
even a cup of water for the required 15 minutes. One can start with less coffee
or less water in these cases. There seems to be no harm if one wishes to retain
the enema longer than 15 minutes. While enemas may seem uncomfortable, many
individuals report the procedure is so helpful they soon forget the
Coffee Enema Steps
Step 1. Materials
As an aside, we have discovered that many television actors and
newscasters do coffee enemas on a regular basis to give more clarity and focus.
It also makes their skin and eyes brighter and more alert. How
Step 2. Preparation of coffee
Step 3. Preparing to take the enema
Step 4. Taking the enema
Open the clamp and hold the enema bag
about one foot above the abdomen. The coffee may take a few seconds to begin
flowing. If the coffee does not flow, you may lift the bag/bucket higher.
If you develop a cramp, close the hose clamp, turn from side to side and
take a few deep breaths. The cramp will usually pass quickly.
RETAIN THE ENEMA FOR 15 MINUTES. See
below if you have difficulties with this. You may remain lying on the
floor. Use the time to read a book, meditate, etc. Some people are able to
get up and go lie on a towel in bed, instead of on the floor. Walking
around the house with the coffee inside is not recommended.
Step 5. Finishing up
Hints regarding coffee enema steps:
If possible, do the enema after a bowel
movement to make it easier to retain the coffee. If this is not possible,
take a plain water enema first if needed, to clean out the colon.
1) Be patient. Practice makes perfect.
2) The water may be too hot or too cold.
Be sure the water temperature is comfortable.
3) It may help to place a small pillow or
rolled up towel under your buttocks so the water flows down hill into your
4) If trouble continues, try reducing the
amount of coffee or add 2 tablespoons of potassium to the water.
