Coffee Enemas

Coffee enemas appear in medical documents dating back to ancient Egypt and are mentioned in medical case reports and articles from the late 1800s as a way of cleansing the body of harmful pathogens and disease. The practice involves injecting organic and caffeinated coffee (brewed using an unbleached filter) into the body’s colon through the rectum. From there, vessels in the lower portion of the digestive tract carry naturally occurring antioxidants and beneficial compounds from the coffee to the liver. This is believed to stimulate the liver to remove free radicals and toxins from the bloodstream as well as reduce its toxic load.

Coffee enemas can have some side effects. As with any type of full wellness support, it is important to fully research and form your own opinion on utilizing coffee enemas in partnership with a qualified healthcare professional.
