Most people think of coffee enema detox as something for the gut, and it is. But when the powerful compounds in coffee hit the liver, that's when the real action begins.
While the enema water encourages peristalsis in the colon, the coffee travels rapidly to the liver by way of the hemorrhoidal vein, where it triggers the release of bile. This decongests and detoxifies the liver.
At the same time, the coffee stimulates the production of glutathione S-transferase, which binds to toxins and carries them out of the body.
Boil half the water (1-1/2 cups) and the ground coffee in a nonaluminum pot. Reduce the heat and simmer 15 minutes. Add the remaining 1-1/2 cups water to cool the mixture to body temperature, using more or less water as needed to get it just right. Strain out the coffee grounds, then follow the basic enema instructions.
Body cleansing will produce "side effects" such as headache, fatigue, or nausea when toxins are released more quickly than the body can eliminate them, and coffee enema detox is no different. If you experience such symptoms, doing a second coffee enema immediately after the first can help. Also be careful to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
Coffee enemas can produce a great deal of energy in some people, while others become relaxed and better able to sleep. Try your first one early in the day to see how you respond.
