I’m not embarrassed to say it, I want to talk about colons, crap and coffee enemas!
My husband and I (that’s right my husband does it too) have been doing coffee enemas every Sunday for the past month and I want to share with you our experience because we have honestly grown to love this safe, detoxifying health treatment and I feel like more people need to know about it.
I first learnt about coffee enemas after watching various Gerson Therapy videos and reading ‘Make Peace With Your Plate’ by Jess Ainscough, who does coffee enemas daily.
I ordered my Gerson Therapy Coffee Enema Starter Kit off http://www.purelifeenema.com and it has been one of the best purchases we’ve ever made for our health.
I should make it clear I am not sick, neither is my husband. The main reason I felt a strong urge to incorporate this into our lifestyle is because of the world we live in today which sadly, is full of toxicity. No matter how much you try to avoid it, there will be toxins your body will take in and carry around on a daily basis. With all the pollution, fluoridated water, electromagnetic fields, chemical agriculture, stress, toxic food ingredients and pharmaceutical drugs, you can begin to imagine how much crap you are literally carrying around with you every day. That is why it is important more than ever now to help flush this toxicity out. Even though I lead a very healthy lifestyle, eat whole foods, drink 3-4 litres of water a day, exercise 6 days a week, I know that I still need to assist my body in detoxifying and I can feel my body is thanking me for it.
The benefits of coffee enemas are amazing and is a treatment that truly promotes optimal health and healing. Coffee enemas not only eliminate toxicity and cleanse the liver and colon, they also help you do a number 2 (which is extremely beneficial for those who suffer from digestive problems or constipation). Coffee enemas work the lower part of the colon and liver. It’s important to know that enemas and colonics are not the same thing and are two different treatments targeting different areas of the colon.
“Coffee enemas are also irreplaceable when it comes to moving toxins out of your system. They stimulate the liver and increase bile production, to excrete toxins more rapidly. They have the amazing ability to rescue people from all kinds of ailments including headaches, hangovers, colds and flu.”
– Jess Ainscough, Author of ‘Make Peace With Your Plate’
On instagram I talk a lot about toxicity in our diets and to do the best we can in reducing the intake of toxicity by steering clear of processed foods, refined sugar, GMOs, chemicals and artificial ingredients. When we clean up our diets and start on the road to a healthy lifestyle, the toxic load that we have built up over the years within our bodies is naturally stirred up which causes some people to feel worse before they get better. It is a normal reaction and is your body adjusting to the goodness coming in and trying to push the bad stuff out. This is where our liver comes into play and its role is to eliminate the toxicity but because in most cases there is a big overload of toxins, it puts the liver under immense pressure to get rid of it so that’s why we need to step in and help.
“With all the chemical poisons in the system, these toxins when you stop pushing them into the system start to come out. When you change your diet to eating all organic you are releasing all these poisons that go into the bloodstream into the liver and unless you help the liver get rid of it you can cause new damage.”
– Charlotte Gerson, Daughter of Dr Max Gerson (Founder of the Gerson Therapy)
I get some people might be a little weirded out by the thought of administering a coffee enema on yourself but I can speak from first hand experience (and my husband will tell you the same thing) it is not painful just a little uncomfortable, I truly enjoy taking the time out to help my body rid the toxicity that has built up over the week and when I release the enema after 15 minutes the amount of crap that is being eliminated is eye-opening and gives me a true indication of what was going on inside me.
It is a great way to get in tune with your body, understand how much toxic waste you are carrying around and really cleanse and detoxify. It’s the best feeling to know you are helping your body function better in order to reach optimum health. So to those who aren’t afraid to take the step towards self-care and self-healing by eliminating your toxic load, I highly recommend it!
