What does a coffee enema do
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?

Ancient Roots The idea of using a cleansing/detoxification protocol followed by a rebuilding phase with improved nutrition and changed lifestyle to get rid of chronic disease and symptoms of “aging” is not new. My guess is that there have been people aware of how to use this approach ever since human beings have been on the Earth. We have documented evidence of this knowledge from at least two thousand years ago in a beautiful book from the period, translated from the original Aramaic and Hebrew. I first read this book in the early 1970’s, and it has affected my healing journey ever since (http://www.thenazareneway.com/essene_gospel_of_peace_book1.htm). As this book shows, in ancient times, water fasting was the cleansing phase. It was followed by the rebuilding protocol of raw, live food nutrition. Both phases were augmented by sunlight exposure, water, grounding to the Earth, breathing and other forms of … [Read more...] about Cancer Observations, Part 2: Raw Vegan and Ketogenic Diets
