One of the fundamental procotols within the Gerson Therapy are COFFEE ENEMAS. Coffee enemas have ten use for over a hundred years as a generalized detoxification procedure. As well, it is a common herbal remedy that has been suggested by holistic and alternative medicine professionals for many years. The purpose of a coffee enema is to stimulate the liver and gallbladder to release stored toxins and wastes, resulting in enhanced performance of these organs.
According to Gerson, when the tumor, the cancer, arthritis or other disease symptoms are gone, the body may still be considered “not cured”. It takes 5 weeks for a liver cell to reproduce and 15 generations to fully restore ... 15*5 = 75 weeks. Therefore, the liver may still require time to be fully restored resulting in a minimum of 2 years on Gerson.
Caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, combine to stimulate the relaxation of smooth muscles causing dilatation of blood vessels and bile ducts. There is a direct communication of veins called the enterohepatic circulation.
This circulatory system enables toxins to be sent directly to the liver for detoxification, rather than circulating them through the rest of the body and all of its vital organs including the brain. This system of veins carries rectal/sigmoid toxins directly to the liver for detoxification.
This means that the coffee is absorbed into the hemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein where it becomes a very strong detoxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination.
Hence, coffee enemas speed up the detoxification process and minimaze the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances. This is because the enzymes in the coffee, known as palmitates, help the liver carry away the toxins in the bile acid.
And with the bile ducts dilated, bile carries toxins away to the gastro-intestinal tract. Simultaneously, peristaltic activity is encouraged because of the flooding of the lower colon. Thus, when the colon is evacuated, the toxins and bile are carried out of the body. This process seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream.
