Happy Friday! If you read my blog you know that I have been listening to an episode of Food Heals every morning for the past few months. The two Food Heals ladies are amazing and they interview such interesting and inspiring people who have healed themselves or others through alternative medicine and plant based food. I have learned so much and one topic that keeps coming up despite the illness or experience is Coffee Enemas. I actually first heard of these on The Skinny Confidential in an interview a few years ago with blogger Weslie Christensen. Not much grosses me out but I didn’t exactly go and run out and buy the enema kit. Now that I have heard so many great things about them though I wanted to share them with you, especially if you or a loved one are experiencing a serious health issue. Coffee enemas are used in many protocols from cancer (look up Gerson therapy) to candida and basically remove toxins from your body.
How It Works // Coffee enemas are powerful detoxifiers, due to some amazing compounds within the coffee that stimulate the liver to produce Glutathione S transferase, a chemical which is known to be the master detoxifier in our bodies. Glutathione S transferase binds to toxins and the toxins are then released out of the body along with the coffee. (source: Mind Body Green)
“The moment a patient is put on the full therapy, the combined effect of the food, the juices and the medication causes the immune system to attack and kill tumor tissue, besides working to flush out accumulated toxins from the body tissues. This great clearing-out procedure carries the risk of overburdening and poisoning the liver—the all-important organ of detoxification, which, in a cancer patient, is bound to be already damaged and debilitated.”
Coffee enemas accomplish this essential task, assisting the liver in eliminating toxic residues from the body for good. (source: The Gerson Institute)
If you think about every health issue and illness a large percentage of them are a result of toxins and inflammation in the body that has built up over the years. If you are able to detox your system and clean all of this out why wouldn’t your health issue clear up? I cannot stress enough how important it is to clean out the junk to clear up your health. I feel so passionate about this and believe so strongly in the powerful effects what you put in your body can have on everything with your health. I have read and listened to SO many amazing stories of people curing themselves of everything from heart disease to diabetes and cancer with just changing how they eat and many times those people also did coffee enemas. If you are struggling with a serious health ailment or have someone in your family who is please consider this alternative approach.
