Coffee Enemas for Allergies?

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Have you ever had an enema? I haven’t. Not that I never will, just I never have so far.

But I’ve heard a lot about them. They can be useful for more than just relieving constipation.

A friend of mine, a naturopath and director of Modern Manna, a Christian health ministry, Danny Vierra runs a 10-day detox program called Bella Vita. The guests that come to his program use coffee enemas as part of the detox. Danny says that once they started using the coffee enemas as part of their program, they noticed that people stopped having severe detox symptoms. Former smokers found that cravings went away in less than a day when they used the coffee enemas.

I went to one of his seminars recently, and I asked him for advice about Manny and his eczema. He was just about to leave, so he didn’t have a lot of time to discuss it, so he recommended coffee enemas.

I thought, “That might be helpful. I’ll need to see about getting an enema kit.” But I didn’t think about it much after that.

Then today I came across a site that talks about coffee enemas. I scanned down the page until, around the middle of the page, I came across a list of benefits the author had experienced with coffee enemas:

Massive food allergies: Previously only two foods didn’t make my body hurt – lettuce and coconut oil! I was able to just barely get away with eating goat yogurt and organic turkey for protein.

Once I began coffee enemas, my food tolerance increased more and more. Now, I can eat all kinds of dairy products, beef, eggs, nuts, fruit – even occasional dark chocolate and (rarely) wheat products!

I interrupted my husband right there and told him, “We need to get an enema bag for Manny.” We found one on sale at Walgreens (on sale and buy one, get one 50% off–we bought four). Now I just need to get some organic coffee. I think I’ll just get the lightest roast I can get (the longer it roasts, the more it destroys the part of the bean that is beneficial) at the health food store.

So I decided to research the topic further. Had other people found relief from eczema by using coffee enemas?

Apparently, the answer is yes. One site, dedicated to an eczema cure (please note that I know nothing about the protocol, and how effective it would be for everyone) explains how the coffee enema works.

The alkaloid, caffeine, dilates the bile ducts throughout the liver. All the clogged channels filled with toxins that force incoming toxins to continue to re-circulate causing pain, are instead, emptied rapidly.

Another site discussing the topic says:

Yes, it is possible to use coffee enemas for eczema. This is because . . . there is a high correlation between a worsening colon condition and eczema. What this means is that as your body is more exposed to toxins within your body, the manifestations of eczema worsens as well. Hence, if you will cleanse your colon, there is a high chance that it will not manifest for a long time.

Now why am I even researching this? Let me see if I can explain.

When a conventional doctor sees eczema, he says, “Keep the skin moist, try hydrocortisone, and let me know if it’s not working and I’ll prescribe something stronger.” Or something like that. A few doctors, like my son’s pediatrician, will also recommend using probiotics. If food allergies are suspected, they might suggest you try cutting out common allergens and might refer you to an allergist. But mostly, they just treat symptoms.

But I am convinced there is a cause. It can’t just be genetic. Granted, maybe an allergy here or there could be genetic. But I believe there is a cause. As I’ve mentioned in recent posts, I am suspecting heavy metals and yeast. These are both toxic to the body, the latter especially when it dies off. Some people have a harder time eliminating toxins than others. So getting the body to flush out toxins faster without negative side effects would clearly be helpful in the healing process.

After all, if food allergies are causing the eczema, there is a good chance that the colon is irritated. Redness around the anus seems to be a good indicator of an irritated colon, as does mossy-green poop in breastfed babies (this site discusses the subject in some detail). So anything that will help the colon heal would theoretically be beneficial to eczema.

This is definitely something we are going to bring up with the naturopath when we go see him next Tuesday. I’ll let you know the results of that visit as soon as I can.

In the mean time, have you ever had a coffee enema? Have you even heard of someone doing one? Please share your thoughts!
