Using Coffee Enemas for Detoxing the Body
In the times of the early Egyptians and Greeks, the practice of colon cleansing was quite popular due to its many health benefits and in recognition of the importance of good colon health.
Fast forward to the 1900s, a time in which medicine was evolving as was the investigation for natural alternatives to healing. Dr. Bernard Jensen, a respected authority in the area of natural healing, promoted the practice of colon cleansing because as he believed, “Death begins in the colon.”
It has been estimated that the body can carry anywhere from 1-5 lbs of impacted waste in the intestines (especially if you suffer from chronic constipation). With all that waste just “sitting” there, can you imagine all the bacteria brewing inside?
Now, colon hydrotherapy and coffee enamas are being included in many gut healing treatments as a way to help the body rid of toxins and harmful pathogens that sometimes the body is unable to process by itself.
