What are coffee enemas?
An enema is slightly different to colonic hydrotherapy as the liquid is held inside the rectum, rather than flushed through the entire colon.
An enema uses a mixture of brewed, caffeinated coffee and water.
They can be done towards the end of a colonic or as a standalone treatment.
What are the benefits?
The main aim of a coffee enema is to remove toxins from the liver and free radicals from the bloodstream.
However, there are some components in coffee that offer other health benefits, including:
preventing yeast overgrowth
removing parasites from the digestive tract
repairing digestive tissue
improving blood circulation
relieving digestive issues, such as frequent constipation, bloating, cramping and nausea
improving low energy levels and moods.
How does it work?
Coffee beans contain caffeine, antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.
One of these compounds is called cafestol palmitate, which stimulates an enzyme, and opens up the bile duct in the liver.
Theobromine, theophylline, and caffeine are thought to widen blood vessels and the bile duct even more, greatly improving digestion.
Inserting coffee directly into the colon also causes the colon muscles to contract, and move stool along the digestive tract.
