Coffee Enemas ~ What's All the Hype About?

Years ago, a dear friend was diagnosed with cancer.  My desk was right next to his and I watched as the disease slowly wore this big man down.  His outlook was such an encouragement to me and I feel blessed and very sad to have been so close during this time.  And how silly to be thinking about myself.  He was very open about his journey and shared some of the special foods and alternative treatments that were suggested.
 
One was a coffee enema.  What!?  Amazed, I had lots of questions and decided to try one on myself.  It was the most energetic 3 days or 72 hours of my life even though I think I was only able to sleep for about 4 of them!  After the initial shock, though, I have to admit that I felt great.  Of course being mid twenties and fairly healthy, I wasn't battling any huge mountains either. So after satisfying my curiosity, I put it out of my mind.

My friend worked hard and had the support of a very caring, loving wife and daughters.  His struggle eventually kept him at home and we only had a few updates during his last few months because the family was so focused on making him comfortable and caring for his needs that they barely had time to think of anything else.  I'm sorry to say that the cancer won that battle.  RIP John.

But now that I'm older, I'm thinking about these things a lot more.  So when I saw this article about Coffee Enemas, I wanted to know all about them.  The article is written by a gal on the GAPS diet who was skeptical of this liver detox method...until she tried it.  She shares a lot of info and answered a lot of my questions.  The thought of a redo is looming in my near future.  Of course, nearly 30 years later, I'm facing a few more mountains now.

Read what she has to say and decide it this is something you think might be helpful in your health journey.

She also shared a link to a colonics page that shows this amazing chart.  Here's the link and the chart.



Is this news to you?  It was for me!  And the part about how the coffee gets from your colon to your liver... fascinating! Check it out.
