Some people might wonder why others do coffee enemas and why they are so popular. The answer is simple: they work. Although the science behind it is not well researched, the fact that it is based on word of mouth and anecdotal evidence shows that it is effective. Enemas have been used for centuries as a tool for healing, and coffee enemas are the latest and most powerful addition to our healing arsenal.
Why Coffee? And why the Butt?Chemicals found in coffee can trigger physiological and biological processes in our body when introduced into the enterohepatic circulation through a rectal enema. This can improve weight loss, detoxification, and even induce mental or spiritual revelations. When we drink coffee, our stomach acid breaks down many of these chemicals. However, with an enema, the compounds, such as palmitic acids kahweol and cafestol palmitate, as well as caffeine, are not broken down and are absorbed directly into our enterohepatic circulation through our portal vein, resulting in effects like increased antioxidant activity and dilation of blood vessels, bile, and liver ducts, which are beneficial for detoxification.
Palmitic AcidsPalmitic acids are said to boost the enzyme glutathione reductase up to 700% when introduced rectally to the liver. Glutathione reductase is important because it catalyzes the reduction of glutathione disulfide (GSSG) to the sulfhydryl form glutathione (GSH), which is a critical molecule in resisting oxidative stress and maintaining the reducing environment of the cell. This is crucial for detoxification, which causes a lot of oxidative damage, so having the ability to reduce this damage is extremely helpful.
VasodilationVaso means circulatory system and Dilation means to enlarge or widen. This means that your blood vessels relax, allowing for increased blood flow to deliver nutrients where they are needed. This positive feedback loop works in conjunction with the coffee enema because caffeine reaches the liver through the circulatory system, where its effects become more pronounced.
Caffeine also dilates the bile ducts, similarly to how it dilates blood vessels. This process is remarkable because it allows the liver and gallbladder to effectively drain and expel bile, resulting in thinner and looser bile. The gallbladder contracts strongly, which can force liver and gallbladder stones out through the now-dilated bile ducts, allowing larger stones to pass safely.
This process is highly beneficial for overall health, especially for those who lack an appropriate amount of fat in their diets. But the benefits of increased bile flow don’t stop there. Bile has many purposes, and coffee enemas enhance its function in every way. Once toxins are processed by the liver, they are packaged into bile for excretion by the body. Once excreted into the bowel, bile serves another incredible function. Think of trying to wash an oily dish without washing up liquid – it’s impossible. This is because oils and fats are hydrophobic and do not mix with water.
