Coffee Enemas for Liver Detox/Flush
People that have a sluggish liver need liver detox/flush and a coffee enema is a good tool to accomplish this task. I just spent time with Charlotte Gerson from The Gerson Institute(gerson.org) She utilizes coffee enemas into her life on a daily basis. She also consumes 6 juices a day in addition to her regular meals. I questioned her intensively. One of the concerns some have with coffee enemas on a regular basis is the loss of the normal flora to which some take probiotics. Charlotte feels that her intake of fresh organic juices takes care of the probiotics and minerals that could be lost with daily enemas. She does practice this for healing and prevention.
I will post a link where there are several doctor's documentation on coffee enemas.
By the way, enemas and colonics used to be the standard of care upon entering hospitals. It was removed when routine pharmaceuticals came on the seen. Thus, laxatives took the place of the nurses care because doctors thought there time was needed elsewhere.
I personally have had good results with the coffee enemas. My father had a gallbladder attack due to gallstones and the standard of care was that the MD wanted to remove his gallbladder. I asked his MD to allow me to proceed with alternative treatment. He agreed and gave me two weeks and then he would repeat the blood work and ultrasound. I utilized coffee enemas for one week before utilizing a liver flush with epsom salts and lemon juice/olive oil. A note of extreme caution here: we knew what size the stones were prior to incorporating the flush. Some people have done liver flushes without knowing the size of the stones and ended up having passed stones to large to exit and thus serious problems incurred. End result of my father's treatment: saved the gallbladder. He has a tendency to have a fatty liver and his liver enzymes will elevate from time to time, so, he utilizes the coffee enema and the liver enzymes come down. A very good tool for health and healing!
WHY THE COFFEE ENEMA WORKS!
by Charlotte Gerson and Morton Walker
from The Gerson Therapy
The caffeine in coffee administered as an enema detoxifies the liver. While the coffee enema is being retained in the gut (for an optimum
period ranging from 12 -15 minutes), all of the body's blood passes
through the liver every three minutes. The hemorrhoidal blood vessels
dilate from exposure to the caffeine, in turn, the liver's portal veins
dilate too. Simultaneously, the bile ducts expand with blood, the bile
flow increases, and the smooth muscles of these internal organs relax.
The blood serum and its many components are detoxified as this vital
fluid passes through the individual's caffeinated liver. The quart of
water being retained in the bowel stimulates the visceral nervous
system, promoting peristalsis. The water delivered through the bowel
dilutes the bile and causes an even greater increase in bile flow.
There is a flushing of toxic bile which is further affected by the
body's enzymatic catalyst known to physiologists as glutathion
Because the coffee needs to boil first then turn it down to a simmer for 15 min so that all the therapeutic agents can be extracted from the ground bean.

Is there a reason you can't brew the coffee in a coffee maker?
Interesting information, I like how condensed and educating this post it. There is so much out there about coffee enemas and the benefits but I was able to digest this well. I tried the liver flush this summer and did a coffee enema at the end the day after the flush, but when I do it again I will incorporate the coffee the week of like you did. Thanks, btw all my acne cleared up after I did the coffee enema, wow they are amazingly cleansing.
