The best coffees to use for an enema are of South American origin, dark roast rather than light, nonoily, less musty and organically grown, as suggested by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, a nutritionist and researcher of the emerging science ofnutritional balancing. The practice of using coffee enemaswas initiated by Dr. Max Gerson.
A coffeeenema is a procedure that drains the contents of the bowels by injecting a coffee solution through the rectum. Dark roasted coffee beans are said to stimulateantioxidant production in the blood, based on a study published in the United States National Library of Medicine. Increased antioxidant levels in the body reduces damage to the cells.Wilson alsoclaims that greasy blends are often putrid and possiblypoisonous. Drier coffee beans are less likely to contain toxins. Commercially available coffee called "upgraded coffee" is touted as moldfree, and some patients attest to its efficacy.
