Does a cup of coffee get your day started? If so, you are joined by 54 percent of the U.S. population who enjoy that daily pick-me-up. But would you ever guess that coffee could help you heal cancer? While there are a number of studies that link coffee consumption to reduced cancer risk, at Hope4Cancer Institute, we advocate that coffee be consumed not as a beverage but as part of an enema — a key detoxification method to support cancer healing.
Detox to Heal
Whether you are healing your cancer via conventional (surgery, radiation, chemotherapy) or alternative (holistic, non-toxic) methods, your body still has to process dead cancer cells and excrete the waste products through the blood, liver, and colon. As a result, detoxification is an important complementary therapy to support cancer die off and healing.
At Hope4Cancer, we take the detoxification process very seriously and include a number of therapies in our treatment regimen to ensure that our patients’ bodies deal with the normal toxicity that comes when cancer cells die off, also known as “necrosis.” After searching the globe for the most effective detoxification processes, we have found coffee enemas to be one of the best methods. While we also include near infra-red saunas, juice fasting, and biological dentistry as part of our detoxification regimen, today’s post concentrates on the specific benefits of coffee enemas for the colon and the liver.
Clean As A Whistle
Colon cleansing is an ancient and time-honored health practice for rejuvenating the lower digestive system. One of the earliest known instances of colon cleansing was recorded in Egypt more than 4,000 years ago. Later, Hippocrates taught these procedures in his health care system.
Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., the father of colonics, stated once that “death begins in the colon.” According to him, about 85 percent of people suffer from impaired digestion and elimination. The long term impact of colonic obstructions results from the accumulation of toxins, poor absorption of nutrients, and a progressively weakened immune system. Most cancer patients we see at Hope4Cancer have impaired digestive systems in some form or another.
In the case of cancer, maintaining good colon health takes on an increased significance. A healthy digestive system is key to sustaining a strong immune system, and cleansing the colon is important for removing carcinogenic toxins. During cancer treatment, large tumors break down into necrotic areas, forming dead tissue that the body eliminates through the digestive system. When there is improper colon health, toxins can accumulate in the colon and complicate the healing process.
The liver is also a key organ in the detoxification process during cancer healing. The liver eliminates its waste through the colon. But when there is not a clear pathway for elimination, there is increased stress on the liver, which can even cause metastatic disease in that organ.
Your Personal Roto-Rooter
Coffee in the form of a coffee enema — rather than the cup you enjoy with breakfast — is an excellent conduit for cleansing the colon and the liver. When inserted rectally, coffee is absorbed through the venous system in the lower part of the colon and goes directly into the liver. It then stimulates the liver to produce more bile, which flushes out the toxins from that organ. This frees up the liver’s capacity to process more toxins instead of being in a constant state of overload. Without this detoxification, the toxins remain concentrated in the bloodstream and various tissues and organs, causing overall toxicity in the body.
Most patients at Hope4Cancer Institute are prescribed coffee enemas for detoxification as part of their healing program. We have two special rooms where our patients are taught how to do the coffee enema each day. The coffee enemas are inserted via a bucket and tube system and held in the colon for 15 minutes before being expelled.
How It Works
While a coffee enema is held in the colon for 15 minutes, the entire blood system in the body passes through the liver about five times! The blood carries toxins from other parts of the body and is picked up by the liver for processing. The coffee acts as a stimulant to open up the bile duct, which allows the toxins to be released and expelled out through the rectum.
Another important role of the coffee enema is to stimulate the increased production of Glutathione S-Transferase (GST) by 600 to 700 percent. GST is an enzyme that contributes to the removal of free radicals and toxins from the blood. The radicals leave the liver and gallbladder as bile salts flowing through the duodenum.
The Best Coffee
At Hope4Cancer, we looked high and low to find the best organic coffee for our enema patients. We have found S.A. Wilson Gold Roast Coffee to be the best. It is 100 percent certified organic and purchased from small independent farmer co-operatives who hand pick the coffee. They also are one of the few Certified Organic Coffee Processors, which means every single step in the production of their enema coffee and the operation of their facility has been certified to meet organic standards.
We find that a coffee high in caffeine and palmitic acid is best for the coffee enema. S.A. Wilsons Gold Roast Coffee has been specifically blended and processed with higher levels of both. Independent lab tests show that their coffee is up to 48 percent higher in caffeine and up to 87 percent higher in palmitic acid.
Is it Time for a Cleanse?
Don’t let the “ick” factor of a coffee enema keep you from healing your body. It is easy to do at home with minimal equipment and investment. We are convinced of the coffee enema’s healing properties and as a non-toxic therapy, we recommend it for cancer patients and anyone else who wants a healthier liver and colon.
