Cancer, Colonics and Coffee Enemas:  What You Need to Know.

Ok I get it, no one wants to talk about poop. Or the act of pooping, and we especially don’t want to talk about sticking anything in our rectum to bring on poop.

Have I said poop enough?

The truth is that digestion and our bowel movements play a very important part in our overall health. A healthy digestion system is an essential key to a strong immune system. And as you know, if your immune system is solid, you are less likely to be diagnosed with a horrible disease. 

So what can we do to help our digestion system do its thing and rid our bodies of toxins?

There are a few options and I am going to cover two that I think are extremely effective: colonics and coffee enemas.


A colonic, also known as colon cleansing, remove toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. The practice dates back to ancient Greece and its popularity has ebbed and flowed since then. Colonics are often used for cancer treatment, constipation, IBS and to ease labor pain.

There are two ways to perform a colon cleansing – with supplements (such as laxatives, herbal teas, enzymes and magnesium) and with colon irrigation. Both of these methods will rid your body of undigested food and mucus that builds up that can produce toxins. Also when your digestive tract is lined with built-up gunk, it can prevent nutrient absorption. This can lead to constipation, which allows harmful bacteria to grow.

There are benefits to colonics:

  • Improved mental focus
  • Strong immune system
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced risk of colon cancer

Coffee Enemas

Yes, you read that correctly. A coffee enema is when you use coffee as an enema to stimulate the liver. As a result Glutathione S-transferase is produced, which is a chemical that binds to toxins and is known to detox our bodies. 

The difference between a colonic and coffee enema is that a colonic cleans the colon and intestines. A coffee enema detoxes the body, especially the liver. 

In addition, coffee enemas are used by the Gerson Institute for the natural treatment of cancer patients. “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 bloodstream.”

The most noteworthy benefits of a coffee enema are:

  • Reduces toxicity levels
  • Increases energy
  • Improves mental clarity
  • Eliminates parasites and Candida
  • Improves digestion
  • Detoxifies the liver
  • Strengthens immune system

How to Do a Coffee Enema

Warning: it’s not going to be pretty or glamorous, but I promise you’ll feel better. Now, if you want a detailed step-by-step guide to a coffee enema, check out Dr. Lawrence Wilson’s article on the coffee enema procedure.

Before you start, here are some of tips: start with only a teaspoon of organic coffee, lubricate the enema tip and never force it into the rectum, do not use more than 2 cups of distilled or spring water, and retain the enema for at least 15 minutes, but try for longer.

And here are the steps to performing a coffee enema:

  1. Decide on a position (many lie on their side).
  2. Gather your materials – 2-quart enema bag, tip, hose and clamp, and organic coffee.
  3. Prepare the coffee – you can use your regular coffee maker, just be sure to add cool water to adjust the temperature. 
  4. Slowly pour coffee into enema bag.
  5. Fasten the hose and tip.
  6. Remove air from the tube.
  7. Lubricate the tip with petroleum jelly, olive oil, or coconut oil.
  8. Insert the tip and open the clamp.
  9. When all the liquid is inside, close the clamp.
  10. After at least 15 minutes, empty the coffee in the toilet.

How Do Colonics and Coffee Enemas Prevent/Treat Cancer?

It’s actually very simple – when a clear path is not available in the digestion process, it puts strain on the entire body. 

Furthermore, when a colonic or coffee enema is performed your immune system strengthens. And a strong immune system can trigger an attack on cancer cells. Hence, the American Cancer Society continually studies different types of immunotherapies to use the body’s own immune system to help fight cancer.

In conclusion, when it comes to preventing cancer, leading a healthy lifestyle with a clean diet and exercise will improve your overall health.  When you’re health is strong, toxins are less likely to be present in your body and without toxins, cancer cells cannot grow.
