The Gerson Institute's coffee enema:
I watched a documentary on FMTV called 'The Gerson Miracle'. The Gerson Institute has had incredible success in treating cancer. Basically, the theory is that if you eliminate toxins and greatly increase nutrients, you can heal disease.
One method that they use is a coffee enema. I wrote down the recipe and tried it on myself today. The benefit of a coffee enema is that it stimulates the liver to produce bile which helps with the release of bile. I have taken the following excerpts from a paper called 'Scientific Basis of Coffee Enemas' which I found online from the Gerson Institute. To read the complete paper, use your search engine using this title. It is an interesting and referenced read.
Coffee enemas are a vital part of the detoxification process of the Gerson Therapy. The purpose of the enemas is to remove toxins accumulated in the liver and to remove free radicals from the blood stream...the caffeine...opens up the bile ducts and allows the liver to release bile, which contains toxins.
...coffee administered rectally also stimulates an enzyme system in the liver called glutathione S-transferase by 600%-700% above normal activity levels. This enzyme reacts with free radicals (which cause cell damage) in the bloodstream and makes them inert. These neutralized substances become dissolved in the bile...A Gerson patient holds the coffee enema in the colon for 12-15 minutes. During this time, the body's entire blood supply passes through the liver 4-5 times, carrying poisons picked up from the tissues. So the enema acts as a form of dialysis of the blood across the gut wall.
Okay, here's what you will need:
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I tried this today and feel really good. If you are suffering from a chronic degenerative disease consider checking out the Gerson Therapy online. To improve your health knowledge in general check out FMTV.
