Most holistic wellness experts would agree that there is no better way to detoxify the body than to take an enema. The procedure purges waste and faecal matter in the colon or lower intestines leaving people feeling healthy and clean inside and out. You have to wonder though – how often should you be taking enemas as a detox recipe? It is a valid concern especially when anything good that people take in excess can turn out to be detrimental. You can say the same thing about enemas.
Coffee enema for detox colon cleansing
There are different types of enema solutions, but if the sole concern is detoxification, then you are probably referring to coffee enemas. Also known as a “master cleanse enema“, coffee enemas do more than just soften and loosen stools or accumulated waste and faecal matter in the body.
When taken through an enema, caffeine yields the desirable effect of boosting liver functions or bile flow as well as raising the production of glutathione (master antioxidant) which further detoxifies the body.
So how often should you take a coffee enema? Most experts would recommend taking no more than two coffee enemas per week although some people have been known to take four with no adverse effects. Any more than that and you risk running into the following problems:
- dehydration electrolyte imbalance
- dependence on caffeine for a bowel movement
- heart palpitations
- caffeine sensitivity
- uterine contractions ( pregnant women should not be taking coffee enemas at all)
Coffee enema and weight loss
So what if you are taking coffee enemas with a different goal in mind like weight loss? Following detoxification, weight reduction is another desirable effect of taking coffee enemas. The act of purging waste and toxic deposits alone can eliminate a significant amount of weight in the body. Better metabolic and digestive functions also make it easier for the body to burn off excess fat deposits.
So how often should you be taking coffee enemas for weight loss? Well similar to detox cleansing, one should set a reasonable limit of 2 to 4 times a week. Any more than that can bring you more harm than good as it is with all excesses in life.
