What is a coffee enema?
An enema was slightly different from a colonic, as the liquid is held in the rectum rather than flushed through the entire colon.
An enema uses a mixture of brewed, caffeinated coffee and water.
They can be done at the end of a colonic or as a standalone treatment.
What are the benefits?
The main goal of a coffee enema is to remove toxins from the liver and bloodstream.
However, coffee enemas can offer other health benefits, including:
preventing yeast overgrowth
removing parasites from the digestive track.
Repairing digestive issues.
Improving blood circulation.
Relieving digestive issues such as frequent constipation, bloating, cramping and nausea.
Improving low energy levels and mood.
How does it work?
Coffee beans contain caffeine, antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.
One of these compounds is call palmitic acid, which stimulates an enzyme and opens up the bowel duct in the liver.
Theobromine, theophyline, caffeine are thought to widen blood vessels, and the bile duct even more, greatly improving digestion.
Inserting coffee directly into the colon also causes the colon muscles to contract, and move stool along the digestive tract.
