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

If there’s one way to review a fully automatic coffee machine, it’s installing in an office of caffeine-craving, antioxidant-seeking Men’s Health employees—and allowing the coffee-fetching pros (aka, us interns) to tend to its needs.For two months, we made sure the machine worked while the staff taste-tested a bevy of brews to determine the 5 best summer coffees. Okay, and we sampled a few cups ourselves.If the Krups EA9000 Barista could withstand our rigorous testing, it would make a dependable addition to any coffee lover’s home, right?The TestDuring the two-month testing period, we estimated that the Krups EA9000 brewed at least eight cups of coffee daily, which totals to 488 cups, excluding milk-based drinks and espresso shots. We preformed routine maintenance on the machine, when prompted, but could not account for our superiors ignoring requests to rinse or clean the unit—conditions we found similar to real-world home use. (Because … [Read more...] about Test Drive | Krups EA9000 Coffee Machine

Just don't drink 7 of them (Red Bulls or coffees) in a day. Then you'll be fine. Too much caffeine is not good, regardless of the source.Take this sobering news from the Jan-Feb 2007 Men's Health about the downside of caffeine..."Research shows that caffeine junkies are 30% more likely to develop depression and anxiety, and 20 percent more prone to panic disorders".And trust me, having been around someone who has anxiety attacks, this is no joke.

(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?

First it was wakame. And then acai berries. Now it’s green coffee beans. Seem like there’s no dearth of superfoods that are fiercely promoted for their weight loss benefits. But do any of these actually work? As far as superfoods go – both wakame and acai berries come packed with health benefits. But there’s little evidence to support their weight loss claims. Green coffee beans, on the other hand, are proving to be packed with perks. But before we get into what this brightly colored cup of joe can do for your waistline, let’s find out a little about it.
