How Coffee Enemas Work

What is a Coffee Enema and How Do Coffee Enemas Work?

Coffee enemas were discovered in the 1930's by a German doctor and naturopath named Max Gerson.   He found that coffee enema relieved discomfort in the body as it removed toxins from the liver and blood.   


A coffee enema is an enema, just like a water enema, only the solution is made of coffee.   The coffee enema solution is delivered the same as a water enema, through the enema tubing into the rectum.




Coffee enema experts as well as medical doctors familiar with coffee enemas, believe that  coffee enemas work in the following manner:  


Once the enema therapy coffee is inside the rectum, the hemorrhoid veins absorb the caffeine in the coffee.  From the hemorrhoid vein it then goes up to the portal vein, which carries the blood supply to the liver and to the gallbladder. 

The effects on the liver by the caffeine and palmitic acids in enema coffee are immediate and brought about by the caffeine, which is an irritant to the liver.  This irritant stimulates the liver bile ducts to open.   Once open, the toxins can be released.  A liver can accumulate a lot of toxins over the course of one's life.  Todays air, water and food is greatly contaminated, placing a serious burden on the liver. Detoxification of toxins can help you to stay healthy.


PureLife enema therapy coffee is high in cafestol and palmitic acid which is needed to open the liver bile ducts. It is a very "clean" organic air roasted coffee. It is not the same as store purchased coffees.


What Does a Coffee Enema Do?

The coffee enema is a gallbladder flush and liver flush.  The coffee enema, without question, will provide prompt relief from pain – even severe pain.  Why is it such a great pain reliever? Because the toxins in the body pollute the blood, which in turn creates havoc in the body? Once the toxins are gone, the pain anywhere in the body is relieved. 

When the body is detoxified, you can experience calmness, more vitality all over, normal bowel movements, mental clarity,  joint relief, headaches relieved.

Coffee enemas can strengthen the body overall by removing toxins from the blood.

Coffee enemas help eliminate bacteria’s and candida in the colon.  Coffee enemas can strengthen and tone the colon.


Are Coffee Enemas Safe?

You should always seek the advice of your physician before taking coffee enemas.   Coffee enemas are not for everyone, but many people have had good results. We recommend reading Gerson Therapy books to find out who can and who cannot use coffee enemas.

Coffee enemas are not the same as drinking coffee. Drinking coffee can upset the intestines from its acid.  But coffee given through an enema will not affect the intestines negatively.    Certain individuals, such as those who underwent chemotherapy, should take great caution and should consult their doctor beforehand.

Coffee enemas should always be done together with plenty of organic juicing. Drinking fresh juices  with coffee enemas will ensure your body maintains the proper electrolytes and minerals you need.  Cleansing and nutrition go together.  You can’t ignore either one. 

Coffee enemas are used as part of the Gerson Therapy cancer cure.
