By now, you’ve probably heard all about how Gwyneth Paltrow’s website Goop is recommending a do-it-yourself coffee enema called the Implant O-Rama System. For $135, you can flush warm brewed coffee up your butt and the website claims it will “hydrate and irrigate” your lower intestine.Earlier this week, various media outlets mocked the Goop endorsement. But gastroenterologists and emergency room physicians who spoke with Men’s Health said coffee enemas aren't just silly — they're potentially dangerous. At-home enemas or “colon cleanses” offered at spas can make you seriously ill, according to these tales of enemas gone wrong.Also called colonics, colon and bowel cleanses, and colon detoxes, enemas are nothing new. David M. Poppers, MD, PhD, a gastroenterologist at NYU Langone Health and a clinical associate professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine, says the practice of bowel cleansing has been around for hundreds or even thousands … [Read more...] about These ER Horror Stories Prove Why You Should Never Do a Coffee Enema

Rob Mooberry was given just a few weeks to live. His colorectal cancer had reached the critical stage 4 diagnoses, and he was in pain. Chemotherapy, radiation, and invasive surgeries were the doctor’s orders, but after the first round, Mooberry decided his body needed a break.“…When I finished chemo, the oncologists were saying I would need to do more straight away and I really didn't want to,” Mooberry said in an interview with Daily Mail. “ I needed to heal. That's when I knew I needed to do anything to beat this cancer. I was really willing to try anything to save my life. That's when I went hard-core raw, vegan, superfoods.”His doctors told him that his attempts to cure cancer with an overhauled, plant-based diet was “naïve,” but Mooberry was just focused on one thing: feeling better. He went vegan, took herbs, and even tried coffee enemas. At his next scan a few months later showed something that shocked everyone: His cancer had … [Read more...] about This Guy Claims a Vegan Diet Cured His Colorectal Cancer—But Did It Really?
Like most men, I am a hygiene centrist: I fall somewhere between Queer Eye and Pigpen. Except with Q-tips—give me a 300 pack and I'll start twirling till they whir. Yesss! A sucker for that Q-tip eargasm, I scoffed at the warning on the box: "Do not use swab in ear canal." Who were they kidding?Then came the first ear infection. "You're a Q-tipper, aren't you?" the ear doctor asked, poking in my ear canal till it felt like a root canal. Turns out all my swabbing had merely pushed my earwax deeper, where it formed a festering "wax plug." As I winced, the doctor smiled. This man hated Q-tips, and he was teaching me a lesson. "Never," he said, probing deeper, "put a Q-tip down . . . this . . . far!"Ow! But I couldn't give it up, so I found a specialist who allows canal cleaning with a swab dipped in hydrogen peroxide. I'm Q-tipping again, my eyes rolling up in my head. So the obsession is still there. And so are the risks, as I know all too well. Here's a guide to where hygiene … [Read more...] about Find out if You’re a Clean Freak

(Natural News) A cup of coffee a day supports two very important detoxification organs, the liver and gall bladder. The properties of organic coffee bean communicate a cleansing effect to the human body. Organic coffee is revered as a therapeutic agent in Gerson Therapy cancer treatment clinics and is used via enema to quickly stimulate detoxification of the liver. (Note: This detoxification practice should be learned from a trained healthcare provider. This practice requires great nutritional care to replenish the body throughout the detoxification process.)Now an eighteen study meta-analysis from the PubMed and EMBASE databases finds that one cup of coffee per day is associated with a 15 percent reduction in liver cancer risk. In all the studies, coffee consumption was assessed before outcome, preventing recall bias. The researchers note that consuming more than one cup per day did not provide greater benefit, suggesting that moderation is important. The researchers … [Read more...] about Coffee supports the gall bladder and reduces liver cancer, as revealed in new meta-analysis
A morning cup of coffee is a must-have for those who rely on caffeine to get their day going. However, many people also find their morning cup of coffee literally causes them to "go" to the bathroom and have a bowel movement. The same principle is applied by those who use coffee enemas to empty their bowels. Coffee enemas are an alternative medicine technique that does not have a significant amount of research to back it up. Additionally, there are potential side effects that can often outweigh the benefits. While coffee enemas may be an option for some people wishing to relieve constipation or prepare for a procedure, doctors do not typically recommend them. An enema is a practice that involves inserting liquid into the rectum to relieve constipation or to prepare for a procedure to look at the bowel. Long-standing constipation can be very uncomfortable and harmful, leading to a possible small bowel blockage and even a hole in the bowel. People have used a range of … [Read more...] about What Does a Coffee Enema Do?
are re-emerging as a popular health practice, but their roots date back to Ancient Greece. And after falling from prominence in America in the 1920s and ’30s, they are coming back in a big way for people concerned about gut health and “toxicity.” But are there any real benefits of a colon cleanse? It depends. They can provide a short-term solution and relief from pain associated with constipation, but for the most part, they won’t offer any long-term health benefits and do have the potential for some nasty side effects. As far as any substantial health benefits associated with colon cleansing, the jury is still out. Put bluntly, a colon cleanse is the removal of waste from your large intestine. There are a couple of ways to do it: one is to take supplements or medications to push the waste out—these are typically in liquid of pill form and can be purchased online and in health food stores, grocery stores, and pharmacies. Examples … [Read more...] about Does a Colon Cleanse Benefit Your Health?
