Coffee Enemas

Updated: Feb 13

Friends, if you are truly serious about transforming your health in dramatic ways, implementing coffee enemas into your regular wellness routine is essential for achieving the life-changing results you have always desired.

Coffee enemas are an excellent method to support your body’s detoxification, particularly for your liver, gallbladder, or alternative cancer therapy, such as the Gearson Therapy.

This guide is for educational purposes only. Always consult with your doctor prior to starting coffee enemas.

I'm known as the coffee enema guru among my clients, colleagues, friends and family. I have been implementing them for years with lots of success! Coffee enemas have an amazing capacity to detox your liver, help boost your immune system and purge your body of unwanted pathogens; myself and my clients can strongly attest to this. Coffee enemas provide a means for your liver to ‘dump’ its toxic load of chemicals and heavy metals into the intestines for elimination.

The time-tested water enema evolved during WWI when German medic supplies – including morphine – were in short supply and nurses were desperate to find ways of alleviating the post-surgery pain of severely wounded soldiers. Water enemas were routinely used, but anxious to find a more potent pain reliever, one resourceful nurse intuitively used leftover brewed coffee and found it to be highly effective.

Reports of the coffee's analgesic benefits prompted two German researchers to study the properties in coffee that produced these effects. In the 1920s, after experimenting with rats, they published their findings that the caffeinated enemas stimulated the opening of bile ducts (Bile is formed by the liver, stored in the gallbladder, and secreted into the intestines – via bile ducts – carrying waste for transit from the body).

Coffee enemas reduce levels of systemic toxicity by up to 700 percent. According to the late Dr. Max Gerson, a pioneer of coffee enema therapy and its effectiveness as part of his famous Gerson Diet, caffeine and other beneficial compounds in coffee stimulate the production of glutathione S-transferase (GST) in the liver. GST is said to be the “master detoxifier” in the body, as this powerful enzyme binds with toxins throughout the body and flushes them out during the enema process. (Source)

According to a 1982 study conducted by the National Research Council (NRC), the effect of green coffee bean consumption on the production of GST in test mice was an astounding 600 percent increase in the liver, and a 700 percent increase in the small intestine. In humans, the effect is similar, if not amplified, during a coffee enema, as coffee is able to directly stimulate the liver without having to first run through the digestive tract. The result is a powerful detoxifying effect that is unmatched by sheer diet alone.

“The purpose of coffee enemas is to stimulate the liver to increase its detoxification of the blood and decrease the toxic load on the liver. This includes removing a variety of toxins and free radicals from the bloodstream. They assist the liver so as not to overburden an already sluggish and toxic liver with the flood of toxins dislodged from the clean, nutrient-dense food and juice of the Gerson Therapy.” – The Gerson Institute

Why is the Liver So Important to Optimal Health?

  • The liver preforms 500+ functions known in the body!

  • Carbohydrate metabolism: converts carbs to glucose to be used as energy throughout the body and brain.

  • Create (synthesize) amino acids to build proteins with as well as protein metabolism.

  • Secretes bile and bile salts needed to for fat digestion and proper enzyme secretion to break down all foods in the stomach.

  • Metabolize and change toxins so they can be excreted by the body (makes toxins into something less toxic in the body)- DETOX mechanism.

  • Contains special blood cells (Kupffer’s Cells) to kill bacteria and antigens.

  • Keeps blood glucose in balance.

  • liver cells (hepatocytes) break down fatty acids which then generates ATP

  • Synthesizes cholesterol and triglycerides within cells

  • Coverts ammonia (left over from too many amino acids) into urea– which can then excreted by the urine. (Ammonia is much more toxic then urea)

  • Ability to change and process hormones (thyroid convert T4 into active T3, estrogen, and aldosterone).

  • Detoxes drugs, medications, pesticides, dangerous vaccine components, and environmental toxins (we breath, bath, and put on our skin).

  • Stores and releases (when needed) these vitamins: glycogen, vitamin A, D, E, K (fat soluble), vitamin b-12, copper and iron.

  • Along with the skin and kidneys, the liver forms active vitamin D for the body to use.

  • Detoxes and filters everything that comes in the intestines and all your blood (only organ that can do this).

How Coffee Enemas Work

Coffee enemas date back to the late 1800’s as a remedy to relieve discomfort and pain in the body as it removed toxins from the liver and blood.

A coffee enema is an enema, just like a water enema, only the solution is made of specialized enema coffee. The coffee enema solution is delivered the same as a water enema, through the enema tubing into the rectum.

Once the enema therapy coffee is inside the rectum, the hemorrhoid veins absorb the caffeine in the coffee. From the hemorrhoid vein, it then goes up to the portal vein, which carries the blood supply to the liver and to the gallbladder.

The effects on the liver by the caffeine and palmitic acids in enema coffee are immediate and brought about by the caffeine, which dilates the portal vein and bile duct.

This stimulates the liver bile ducts to open. Once open, the toxins can be released.

  • The caffeine in coffee enters the liver through the portal system and causes an increase in bile flow. The bile, in turn, supports the accumulated poisons and toxins to be released and evacuated from the body.

  • Coffee enemas are a powerful way to detoxify the body.

  • Coffee enemas are an excellent alternative to sedation or pain relievers.

  • Coffee enemas taken in an enema are unlike drinking coffee. Drinking coffee causes digestive problems and negatively affects the liver.

  • Coffee enemas typically do not affect normal evacuation processes.

Coffee enemas are superior to plain water enemas, as they provide so many more benefits. The theobromine, theophylline, palmitic acid and caffeine in the coffee travel via the rich capillary bed of the rectum into the portal vein, which leads directly to the liver. These substances dilate blood vessels and open up the bile ducts allowing the liver to release bile, which contains toxins.

Doctors at the University of Minnesota showed that coffee administered rectally also stimulates an enzyme system in the liver, which increases glutathione, the master antioxidant in the body, by 600%-700% above normal activity levels. This antioxidant reacts with free radicals (which cause cell damage) in the bloodstream and makes them inert. These neutralized substances become dissolved in the bile, are released through the bile flow from the liver and gallbladder, and are excreted through the intestinal tract.

While holding the coffee enema in the colon for 10-15 minutes, the body’s entire blood supply passes through the liver 4-5 times, carrying poisons picked up from the tissues. So the enema acts as a form of dialysis of the blood across the gut wall. It’s an amazing way to assist the body to detox in our very toxic world.

What Are The Benefits of A Coffee Enema?

The coffee enema is a gallbladder flush and liver flush. The coffee enema, without question, will provide prompt relief from pain – even severe pain. Why is it such a great pain reliever? Because the toxins in the body pollute the blood, which in turn creates havoc in the body. Once the toxins are gone, the pain anywhere in the body is relieved.

When the body is detoxified, you can experience calmness, more vitality all over, normal bowel movements, mental clarity, joint relief, and headaches relieved – and generally whatever you are experiencing a coffee enema will help you feel better – fast!

  • Coffee enemas can strengthen the body overall by removing toxins from the blood

  • Coffee enemas help eliminate bacteria’s, parasites and candida in the colon

  • Coffee enemas can strengthen and tone the colon

  • Coffee enemas are given to stimulate the release of toxins in the liver

  • Coffee enemas are known to improve mental clarity, relieve depression and mental confusion

  • Coffee enemas are known to relieve back pain, allergy symptoms, and arthritis

  • Coffee enemas can be taken without assistance at home

  • Coffee enemas relieve chronic pain, ease “die-off” symptoms during cleanses, detox regimens

  • Coffee enemas detoxify and help repair the liver

  • Coffee enemas cleanse and heal the colon and digestive tract, improve peristalsis

  • Coffee enemas boost glutathione s-transferase by up to 700%, which is one of the body's master antioxidants and is involved in different phases of detoxification.

A liver can accumulate a lot of toxins over the course of one’s life, due to today’s air (geoengineering), water (contaminates), and food GMO's and other chemicals) are greatly contaminated, placing a serious burden on the liver.

Detoxification of toxins can help you to stay healthy.

Why Should I Use Organic Enema Coffee?

When you do a coffee enema, you will not be using the same coffee you buy in the grocery store to drink in the morning.

For the same reasons I recommend to purchase organic produce and ingredients whenever possible, is why I also highly recommend purchasing organic enema coffee – to avoid pesticides, herbicides.

What’s The Best Enema Coffee To Buy?

  • Enema therapy coffee must be caffeinated. Coffee contains caffeine, which contains palmitic acids (cafestol & kahweol). These help to produce glutathione-S-transferase (GST), which is used in different phases of detoxification in the body. They also help to release bile from the gallbladder and liver.

  • Enema therapy coffee should have a high enough cafestol content to open the bile ducts.

  • Enema therapy coffee must be a “clean” coffee since it will go into the liver.

  • The cleanest coffee is a special “air roast” process.

  • The traditional drum roasting process can cause beans to be burnt which are carcinogenic to the liver.

  • Fine ground enema coffee will retain 100% of its cafestol and palmitic acid content for at least 8 months and up to 2 years.

  • There is no difference in buying whole bean enema coffee or fine ground for enema use – both retain the same potency. This statement is supported by research done at US Coffee Association for enema use – both retain the same potency. This statement is supported by research done at U.S. Coffee Association.

  • The lighter the color of the coffee, the stronger the cafestol.

  • Gerson Therapy recommends medium roast, fine grind, for their patients.

  • The lighter the roast, the more powerful the cleanse.

What Brand of Enema Coffee Should I Use?

First, it must be caffeinated and organic. There are many brands of “enema coffee” and even “organic enema coffee” on the market – how do you know which one to choose?

I’ve used a many different brands over the years, but PureLife Organic Enema Coffee and AUSSIE HEALTH CO 419° Roasted Organic Enema Coffee and this organic one are my favorite enema coffees.
