Enemas are quick ways to remove toxins from the colon and body. They should only be performed under supervision
by a holistic medical doctor, naturopathic physician or herbalist.
A coffee enema is believed to detoxify the liver by rapidly emptying the colon, enhancing liver detoxification, and
increasing the flow of bile and the elimination of toxins through bile. Some people claim that it provides immediate
relief to toxicity symptoms, such as congestion, indigestion, pain and headaches.
Side Effects and Adverse Reactions
If you start to feel sick during the enema, or become dizzy, nauseous or faint, stop the enema. People with gallstones
should not try a coffee enema.
Why Coffee Enema Cleansing Works
The effects of a coffee enema are different than a saline enema. The most important difference
between a saline enema and a coffee enema is the presence of caffeine in the coffee. Caffeine,
theophylline and theobromine, combine to stimulate the relaxation of smooth muscles causing
dilatation of blood vessels and bile ducts. The effects of having a coffee enema are not the same as
drinking coffee. The veins of the anus are very close to the surface of the tissue. The caffeine is
therefore absorbed more quickly (and in higher concentration) than it is in when coffee is drunk.
Benefits of Enemas and Colonics with Coffee
Enemas and Colonics have been used for hundreds of years, and are generally regarded as safe.
Additionally, coffee cleansing enemas have a chemical makeup that is stimulative. The enzymes in
coffee, known as palmitates, help the liver carry away the toxins in bile acid. The coffee is absorbed
into the hemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein. With the bile ducts dilated,
bile carries toxins away to the gastro-intestinal tract. Simultaneously, peristaltic activity is encouraged
because of the flooding of the lower colon. Thus, when the colon is evacuated, the toxins and bile are
carried out of the body.
