Supporting The Liver – Through Coffee Enemas

The coffee enema is very stimulating to the liver and is the greatest aid in elimination of the liver’s toxic wastes.

The coffee enema, besides stimulating liver detoxification, also has beneficial effects in cleaning the colon. Coffee is an excellent solvent for encrusted waste accumulated along the walls of the colon. The caffeine also directly stimulates the peristaltic muscle to contract more powerfully and loosen such deposits, which are occasionally visible as hard, black material and "ropes" of mucus. Gradually, as the protein metabolism of the body improves, the muscle tone of the bowel becomes normal and thorough evacuation is possible without the aid of the enema.

Essentially, the coffee enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed — that of elimination in 1 or 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature.

At first, most people dislike enemas and have psychological barriers against them. Ignorance of the purpose and function of the enema, as well as misunderstanding of the proper procedure for taking it bring about this aversion. I have observed, however, that the persons most opposed to enemas soon reverse their prejudices and become the most avid supporters of them! In many cases, the enema relieves distress and gives a sense of well-being and cleanliness never before experienced. The proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill health.

It is most desirable to take the coffee enema early in the morning and it may be repeated again in early afternoon and/or evening, depending upon the toxic condition of the body. Enemas using coffee in the afternoon or evening may interfere with sound sleep. If enemas are needed at these times, many patients prefer to use only warm pure water omitting the coffee. But it is better to take coffee at these times also, and a weaker solution to permit sleep would be better than not using coffee at all.

An enema is the injection of liquid through the anus to motivate evacuation. Enemas are a valuable tool for cleansing your Liver and Colon and provide many additional benefits. But how can you perform an enema at home? Realistically, they are safe and easy when done correctly.  If you want a quick, simple, and effective way of cleansing your liver.   Below are the instructions on how to perform a cleansing retention enema.

The Liver and Colon is a part of the digestive system and are responsible for extracting the water and salt to maintain body’s electrolyte balance, from waste, prior to release.   The colon can be clogged due to waste clinging to its walls. This can cause: headaches, low energy level, vomiting, weight gain, skin allergies, constipation, joint pains, indigestion, fatigue, diarrhoea, vision problems, loss of memory, stress, bloating, etc.   It can also lead to various diseases such as heart problems, asthma, gall bladder stones, skin allergies, kidney and liver ailments as well as cancer.

Benefits of A Coffee Enema

The major benefit of the coffee enema is to enhance elimination of toxins through the liver.  Indeed, endoscopic studies confirm they increase bile output.  A patient 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. 

Other benefits are:

  • Increased bile flow alkalinizes the small intestine and promotes improved digestion.
  • Coffee 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 liver.
  • By stimulating the large and small intestines somewhat, coffee enemas help enhance liver activity.  This is a process understood in acupuncture.  Technically, introducing water and coffee into the colon weakens the large intestine meridian somewhat.  This is usually helpful, as this meridian is often overstimulated by the presence of toxins in the large bowel.  Even if it is not overstimulated, the effect in terms of acupuncture meridians is to enhance the energy of the liver/gall bladder meridian to some degree.
  • Coffee contains some selenium, a mineral needed by most people.  Taking the selenium by rectum apparently works better than taking it by mouth.
    Coffee also contains some toxic metals such as lead and cadmium.  However, it appears from our experience that when taken by rectum, these are not absorbed nearly as much as they are when coffee is taken through the mouth.
    Retaining the enema for 15 minutes or so forces one to move one’s attention downward toward the pelvic area.  This may have a subtle and powerful healing effect. 
    Coffee enemas cause relaxation of the sympathetic nervous system.  This may seem odd, since they contain caffeine which is a stimulant.  Possible reasons for relaxation of the sympathetic nervous system include: 1) they affect two important parasympathetic organs, the liver and the large intestine, 2) they remove irritating toxins from the body rapidly and thoroughly, 3) more subtle mechanisms that affect the nerve feedback in a way that inhibits sympathetic nerves.
    The compounds kahweol and cafestol found in coffee enhance glutathione S-transferase activity in the liver.  This enzyme assists liver detoxification that neutralizes and helps remove a large variety of toxic compounds

People who choose to use coffee enemas to enhance liver detoxification and/or reduce pain should take the same precautions as in any enema: use an enema bag with appropriate lubricated nozzle to avoid damaging the rectum or bowel; thoroughly clean the equipment after each enema to avoid reintroducing pathogens to the colon; and do not perform too many enemas within a short time. 

How A Coffee Enema Works

Coffee Enema for Liver Detoxification

The very last part of the colon, before reaching the rectum, is in an "S" shape and called the sigmoid colon. By the time stool gets to this part of the colon, most nutrients have been absorbed back into the bloodstream. Because the stool contains products of putrefaction at this point, there exists a special circulatory system between the sigmoid colon and the liver.   

There is a direct communication of veins called the enterohepatic circulation. Have you ever felt sick just before having a bowel movement, when stool material has just moved into the rectum for elimination? As soon as the material is evacuated, you no longer feel sick. This is due of the toxic quality of the material and the enterohepatic circulation coming into play. Because of this, it is important to evacuate when you have the urge. The rectum should usually be empty.

This circulatory system enables toxins to be sent directly to the liver for detoxification, rather than circulating them through the rest of the body and all of its vital organs including the brain. This system of veins carries rectal/sigmoid toxins directly to the liver for detoxification.

When a coffee enema is used, the caffeine from the coffee is preferentially absorbed into this system and goes directly to the liver where it becomes a very strong detoxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination. This process seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream. The coffee does not go into the systemic circulation, unless the enema procedure is done improperly.

The coffee contains some alkaloids which also stimulate the production of Glutathione-S-transferase, an enzyme used by the liver to make the detoxification pathways run. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione, one of the main conjugation chemicals, enabling toxins to be eliminated via the bile into the small intestine.
