There are countless benefits of coffee enemas. In this article, we will walk you through all of the top benefits of coffee enemas.

This article is all about coffee enema benefits.

Coffee Enema Benefits

Increases production of glutathione

Glutathione is created in the liver ⁣and is made from three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Additionally, glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant and is critical for protection of our cells. Glutathione protects our cells from things like free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides and heavy metals.

Doctors at the University of Minnesota found that one coffee enema can increase the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase (GST) levels 600-700%. Increased levels of glutathione can result in clearer skin, better mood, more energy, less inflammation, relief from headaches, and more.

Stimulates the liver to produce more bile

According to WebMD, “the liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does that, the liver then secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines.”

Understanding what the liver does helps us to understand why bile flow is important for our detoxification system. At any given moment, the liver contains around 10% of our blood, cleaning it to protect us. Our liver filters about 1.4 liters of blood per minute. It deposits all the waste products that need to get out of the body into the bile. Then this waste material gets removed in our stools.

Detoxes the liver, specifically phase 2 detox

According to Dr. Glennf Frieder, “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, and then taken up to the liver by the portal vein. With the bile ducts dilated, bile carries toxins away to the gastrointestinal 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.”

Relieves headaches and migraines

When toxins or unnatural substances are in the liver and circulating in the body,  headaches can occur. A coffee enema can help flush out the toxins, thus relieving the headache or migraine pain.

Drastically improves skin health

Every day we absorb toxic chemicals and heavy metals from food, water, pollution, etc. Over time, these toxins build up in our system and can contribute to many issues, including acne and other skin issues. Coffee enemas help to eliminate toxins, and therefore improves your overall skin health. Additionally, because coffee enemas purify our blood, more nutrients are available to nourish your skin.

Stimulates blood circulation

This goes back to understanding how the liver works. According to HealthyBe.co, “the coffee causes the bile ducts to dilate so that more toxins can be excreted through bile into the intestines for an exit out of the body. At the same time the theophylline and theobromine in the coffee cause dilation of the blood vessels, allowing more blood to pass through the system for filtering by the liver.”

Fights symptoms of depression

Dr. Kelly Brogan explains, “the coffee enema is a method of relieving the liver of its burden to process toxins, and it’s doubly valuable because it’s self-administered.”

Depression often makes our sympathetic nervous (fight or flight response) system work overtime. In turn, the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest response) is too low. Coffee enemas help to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.

According to Microbe Formulas, “coffee enemas stimulate the gallbladder to contract. This is how it helps to open the bile duct. Coffee can improve gallbladder contraction by around 33% or more. This really helps to move out the toxins the liver wants to expel.”

New England Journal of Medicine did a study with schizophrenic patients who were hospitalized for two weeks, with no interventions except for coffee enemas daily, and were discharged symptom-free.

Improves mental clarity and focus/reduces brain fog

Coffee enemas increase detoxification, which in turn, speeds up the duplication of red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen so there ends up being an increase in the body and brain! When there is enough oxygen in the brain you will be able to focus and think better.

Alleviates constipation

If you struggle with constipation, coffee enemas can help you eliminate. However, it is not recommended to rely on enemas to eliminate waste.

Reduces body’s toxin load

Coffee enemas help to flush out toxins and free radicals from the bloodstream. During a coffee enema, you lay on your right side while holding the enema. This allows the coffee to circulate your liver.

Helps Fight Cancer

Max Gerson has successfully used coffee enemas in thousands of cancer patients. Dr. Gerson’s therapy uses a combination of coffee enemas nutrient-dense foods. For more information check out Gerson Institute.
