The Benefits of Liver Detoxification with Coffee Enemas
Coffee enemas are widely known for their liver detoxification protocols and overall gut health support. So, what are coffee enemas all about and what are the benefits? This article explores the key benefits of doing a coffee enema and why it is an ideal addition to your detox ritual.
WHAT DOES THE LIVER DO?
The liver is one of the most vital organs in the body. It serves a purpose in cleansing the blood and neutralizing toxins that can come from the daily use of chemical products, our diet, and the environment that circulates in our bodies. By-products from the liver are then processed and eliminated from the body through the colon.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE LIVER IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY?
Without the liver’s support in this process, we would not be able to function and can result in severe illnesses. When the liver is overburdened, conditions such as liver cirrhosis and fatty liver as a result of a poor diet can occur. Chronic constipation or inadequate bowel movements also contribute to an overburdened liver.
When the body cannot eliminate waste efficiently through the colon, toxins accumulate from old waste sitting in the colon. These toxins recirculate back to the liver to be neutralized again, creating an endless cycle of dysfunction. When this occurs, the body’s immune function is impacted and creates a long slew of symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, irritability, hormonal issues, weight gain, and headaches.
HOW TO RELIEVE THE LIVER FROM TOXINS
One of the first things to do to help support the liver is to cleanse the bowel and have regular bowel movements. A healthy individual should have a bowel movement about 2-3 times per day with the stool containing a lot of bulk but not hardened clumps or small pellets. Skinny stringy stools or pellets are an indication of constipation and dehydration. To address this, it is important to drink plenty of water and incorporate fiber and probiotics into the diet to help have smoother bowel movements.
When experiencing a lot of constipation, a colonic is recommended to fully cleanse the bowel lining and to help eliminate any residual toxins that may be sticking to the colon wall. It is also recommended to do a colonic before, during, and after any detox protocol that is being done to achieve the best results and reduce detox symptoms that may occur. A coffee enema is also a great addition to a detox protocol paired with a colonic.
WHAT IS A COFFEE ENEMA?
Coffee enemas are organic green coffee that is made to be administered into the colon from an enema bag and is held for 12-15 minutes. The active coffee extract is absorbed through the blood vessels in the colon straight to the liver. What this coffee does is activate an enzyme called Glutathione in the liver that reacts to free radicals in the bloodstream that is responsible for cellular damage. When these free radicals are neutralized, the toxins are dissolved in bile produced by the bile duct and are then carried to the colon for elimination.
Coffee has been known to be a hepatoprotective substance that can help support the liver and may protect against cirrhosis and hepatitis. Other key benefits that coffee enemas may have is it can improve energy levels, aid in weight loss, help reduce chronic pain, improve detoxification, and many more benefits.
WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL TO DO A COFFEE ENEMA AFTER A COLONIC?
When constipated, it is difficult for the body to absorb any nutrients through the colon walls. When there is too much waste stuck on the walls of the colon, it renders the coffee enema less effective. This makes it harder for the coffee to be absorbed through the bloodstream and reduces access to the blood vessels in the colon. For this reason, it is ideal to do at least a few colonics before starting any liver cleanse or coffee enema to achieve the best results.
