Coffee Enema


As the self-administration of a coffee enema is being used as a means of self-care for detoxification in various indications, it is important that evidence-based information is provided for effective and safe use. However, the evidence is so far rare. Still, coffee enemas are being tested in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Coffee enemas are thought to stimulate bile flow and the production of glutathione, a detoxifying antioxidant. Nonetheless, there is no scientific evidence that proves or disproves that coffee enemas are helpful to treat any medical condition. Evidence for or against the use of coffee enemas is mostly anecdotal. In mainstream medicine, colon cleansing is considered unnecessary because your body’s digestive system is capable of getting rid of waste, toxins, and bacteria on its own.
