The use of coffee Colonics for detoxification purposes is a popular treatment. It is an herbal remedy that has been used by alternative medicine and holistic professionals for many years.
Blood passes through the liver to be cleaned of toxins every three minutes, with today's diet often high in processed foods, alcohol and prescription drugs the liver becomes overworked and the channels within it become blocked forcing incoming toxins to re-circulate resulting in toxic overload. This can result in:
- Weight Gain
- Impaired Liver Function
- Aches and Pains
- Skin Problems
The coffee Colonic can greatly alleviate these symptoms. The chemicals theophylline and theobromine found in coffee stimulate the relaxation of smooth muscle causing dilation of the blood vessels and bile ducts within the liver allowing the toxins and the fat reducing bile fluid to be expelled rapidly into the large bowel.
Drinking a cup of coffee has an entirely different effect to using it as a cleansing enema and is, in fact, counter productive to the DETOX process. Drinking coffee may cause problems such as increased heart rate, palpitations, insomnia, can over stimulate the adrenal glands and leaves a toxic residue in the body--a coffee colonic will not cause these problems.
The caffeine is a stimulant and encourages mass peristalsis, emptying the bowel and preventing reabsorption of the toxins. This is the bottom line of detoxification. In addition palminates kaweol and cafestol also found in coffee promote the activity of the enzyme system gluthione S-transferase well above the normal range. This enzyme group detoxifies a vast array of free radical chemicals from the blood stream.
Coffee is administered into the lower bowel using disposable equipment. Since the coffee is held for 12 to 15 minutes, and the blood passes through the liver every three minutes for cleansing, the colonic represents a form of dialysis of blood across the colon wall, without entering the digestive tract.
