Coffee Enemas Stimulate the Liver

Removing Free Radicals and Toxins

And Destroying Cancer Cells

Coffee enema, promoted by Dr. Gerson, dilates the bile ducts of the liver.  It stimulates an enzyme system in the liver referred to as glutathione-S-transferase.  In treating cancer alternatively this allows the free radicals to be destroyed…cancer may be reversed.


The coffee enema is capable of removing circulating toxins and partial metabolites for one specific reason: 


        The coffee enema dilates the liver’s bile ducts - which Gerson knew. 


We now know, from the work of Wattenberg, Sparnins, and Lam at the University of Minnesota, Department of Pathology, Minneapolis, that coffee stimulates an enzyme system in the liver, glutathione-S-transferase. 


Glutathione-S-transferase is capable of removing a vast variety of electrophiles from the bloodstream. Electrophiles are referred to in popular literature as free radicals.

Electrophiles are atomic particles with one or more electrons in unpaired spins. They have an affinity for electrons and they want to get involved where they should not get involved. They are charged particles commonly referred to as free radicals. They will damage membranes of cells and they will inflict disturbances in cellular metabolism.

Under the influence of a coffee enema the glutathione-S-transferase enzyme system, which is a part of the ligandine enzyme system that accounts for about 3% of all enzymes in the liver, is responsible for removing electrophiles from the blood stream.  This will be increased in activity from 600%-700% above normal.


No materials other than coffee are known to stimulate this activity as much.


·        That's why people are known to get a buzz off of a cup of coffee in the morning, and


·        Why some people are too grouchy to do anything but read the newspaper until they've had their coffee, and


·        Why coffee is so effective in clearing heads.

Treating cancer alternatively allows the coffee enema stimulates the glutathione-S-transferase system by 700%.


During the 15-minute time that the coffee enema is being held in the intestine some caffeine is taken directly to the liver via the hepatic duct.  This stimulates the liver to remove it.  Consequently, all the blood in the body passes through the liver at least five times. Every three minutes, all the blood in your body passes through your liver.


In addition to stimulating the enzyme system, the theobromine, theophylline, and the caffeine in coffee all have physiological effects.


Among these are;

·        the dilation of blood vessels and bile ducts,

·        the relaxation of smooth muscles, and

·        the increase of bile flow.


The palmitates, compounds in the coffee that actually stimulate glutathione-S-transferase, also cause increased bile flow.

In addition to that, the quart of water in your intestines stimulates what is called the visceral nervous system.


The visceral nervous system is the nervous system that orchestrates what is called peristalsis, the weak force that moves materials through the intestines.


Additionally, at least part of that quart of water passes through the wall of the gut and dilutes the hemorrhoidal. Then the portal blood goes into the liver, as well as dilutes the bile and causes increased bile flow.


The net effect of the coffee enema is to cause a flushing of toxic bile, or bile that has been loaded with toxins by the glutathione-S-transferase system, out of the intestines.

Glutathione-S-transferase shuttles; it's an enzyme catalyst. It's out there catching free radicals, like an outfielder on a baseball team, and throwing them to the glutathione molecule of the bile.


The glutathione molecule has a branch called the sulfhydryl part that absorbs many electrophiles. It has great adsorptive capabilities.


What then happens is that these things become bile solutes. The bile solutets in the bile are flushed out of the gallbladder and the liver, and into the duodenum, and peristalsis carries them through the small intestine, through the colon and out the rectum.


According to Dr. Gerson, treating cancer alternatively using coffee enema is an effective dialysis.


The coffee enema is the only pharmaceutically effective choleretic in the medical literature that is repeatable many times daily.


Choleretic is like diuretic. Diuretics cause urination. Choloretics cause bile flow.

This is the explanation of how coffee enemas cleanse the blood. See blood.


What is the coffee enema removing from the liver?

·        Ammonia-like products,

·        toxic-bound nitrogen,

·        protein derivatives that are often times charged particles,

·        polyamines,

·        amino acid clumps and complexes.

When you improve the sodium ring around tumors and diseased tissue of cancer, the first thing that happens is that this tissue gets better drainage and better circulation. And the cells begin to function normally.


And when cells begin to function normally, they do what's normal for cells, they behave like themselves. And that means our tissues are now themselves again.


They bring, with normal function, requisite behavior for health, which is resistance to disease, and immunity against diseases such as cancer and other illnesses.
