Our body has natural detoxification pathways, but with an increasingly toxic exposure we face daily, those pathways can be overloaded. Many studies show that healthy body detoxification pathways are an integral component of optimal health. Detoxification at the cellular level can be very efficient, especially in preventing cell mutations and disease prevention. One easy way is by managing one’s diet and focusing on foods that are less acidic, low in sugar content and without additives or preservatives.
Electro lymphatic drainage
Electro lymphatic drainage therapy is one of the most efficient lymphatic drainage techniques currently available. It is a natural, pain-free, non-invasive holistic form of therapy that involves an electro machine. It helps accelerate the drainage of the lymphatic system and is performed by our highly trained medical staff.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. Therefore, the lymphatic system plays a very important role for the body. In addition, its other functions are as follow:
- Acts as an intermediary for exchange of substances and gases.
- Destroy bacteria and foreign body.
- Create white blood cells.
- Conveying fat.
The circulation of the lymphatic system is different from the blood circulatory system. Blood circulation is a 2-way system whereas, the lymphatic system only flows in one direction.
Thus, when there are toxins or various waste blocking its pathway, the lymphatic system will not be able to function optimally. For some people, this is clearly evident by the orange peel like skin surface. This happens because of lack of exercise which this in turns cause the circulation system to start failing.
For some people, they will experience small lumps in the limbs. For those who are less fortunate, lumps might develop around the breast which can be a cancerous.
Therefore, getting rid of toxins from the body is extremely important. It can prevent, manage and at the same time has many therapeutic benefits for the body.
The benefits of an optimal lymphatic system are as follows:
- Weight loss
- Reduces cellulite
- Reduces inflammation
- Boost immunity
- Reduce water retention
- Assist in managing some chronic diseases
- Reduce stress and more
Patient is to lay down on a comfortable massage table. Our medical staff will use a very special wand that holds a combination of vibrational, light and electrical waves inside and move it slowly along the body in a specific direction that matches the body’s natural lymphatic flow. The duration of the therapy plus the number of cycles needed depends on the condition of the individual patient and will be advised by the consulting physician accordingly.
Your colon and your health
Colon is a long, muscular tube. It’s a key part of your digestive system.
After the food we eat is digested in stomach and small intestine and nutrients are already absorbed to bloodstream. The waste products are formed to be stool.
Your colon then moves the stool along its walls to be expelled. This process rids the body of food waste and toxins
Humans have more bacterial cells—a lot more—than human cells.
Bacteria live on the skin, in the nose and ears, and, most of all, in the gut.
Your colon contains multi-strain of bacterial composition, known as gut microbiota
Colonic microbiota plays an important role in several areas of human physiology
Many hundreds of different types of bacteria, varying widely in physiology and biochemistry, exist in a multitude of different microhabitats in the lumen of the large gut, the mucin layer and on mucosal surfaces.
Recent research on the microbiome (gut microbes) has acknowledged about the relationship between gut microbes, our immune system and our brain.
There are complicated interactions between the different types of organisms and our immune system.
According to the fact that up to 70% of our immune system resides in the wall of the colon. Gut associated lymphoid tissue is the largest source of mature lymphocytes. Gut mucosa is the major site of lymphocytes contact with antigens
Autointoxication is self-poisoning
It occurred when toxic waste sitting in the colon is reabsorbed back into the bloodstream and in to the tissues and organs of the body.
A built up of old, putrefied fecal waste can also block proper digestion, nutrient absorption, waste elimination and provides an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and parasites
Bacteria and, in some cases, the toxins they produce can be picked up from the gut by our lymphatic system and transported to the brain (or anywhere else in the body) contributing to various inflammatory responses in remote sites
People with poor diets, consume too much red meats and low fiber intake from vegetables, often have compromised digestive system.
They have slow transit time of bowel movements, constipation, Irritable Bowel syndrome, diarrhea, excessive gas or the use of laxatives which cause the nerves in the colon become desensitized.
These cause slower removal of body wastes. The reabsorbed toxins load the liver task of detoxifying.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a complimentary cleansing process involved the gentle infusion of gravity fed, purified, temperature controlled water into the colon through a disposable tube (thinner than a pencil) into the rectum.
The gentle flow of water helps loosen and soften impacted fecal matter and waste that has built up on the walls of the colon, which then stimulates natural peristalsis (muscular contraction) and the release of stored waste from the colon.
Colonic hydrotherapy will eliminate and flush out these bad toxins, bacteria, fungi and parasites.
Before having colonic irrigation, the therapist will ask you about your medical history to check if you have any health problems that might make the treatment inadvisable. During the procedure, you lie on your side while warm water is passed into your bowel through a tube inserted into your rectum. The water circulates through your colon, and waste products are passed out of your body through the tube. It usually takes around 30-45 minutes.
The therapists will use a variety of water pressures and temperatures and combine with the use of probiotic, the supplements containing beneficial bacteria, to give colonization of healthy bacteria.
Effects of colonic hydrotherapy on gut bacteria
Colonic hydrotherapy targets bowel function as well as bowel flora thus enabling reciprocal interactions between the mind, the gut and the microbes that populate to be harmonized.
Supporting healthy gut flora to get the best benefits after colonic hydrotherapy by
- Avoid alcohol, chlorine, herbicides, pesticides and some medications (antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, anti-depressants, antacids which can have harmful effects on gut flora)
- Eat fiber rich foods such as vegetables, flax seeds, chia seeds
- Eat berries and foods that are rich in polyphenols, which have an antimicrobial and anti-oxidative effect.
The combination of blueberries and probiotics has been shown to reduced inflammation-inducing bacteria while increasing health-promoting lactobacillus in the intestine
- Encourage a diverse gut flora by eating fermented vegetables (such as sauerkraut, Kimji, Nutto, etc.) fermented soya (such as Tempeh) and by taking a quality probiotic supplement.
Health benefits of colonic hydrotherapy include:
- improved muscle tone of the colon
- reduced toxic waste and absorption
- increased digestive function
- purging of the liver
- increases elimination of parasites, bad bacteria and fungi
- clears the lymphatic system
- increases immunity
- clearer skin and eyes
- clarity of mind
- increased vitality
- Reducing the risk of colon cancer
- Losing weight
Through many of the common chemical-based cancer treatments such as, Chemotherapy, the body is constantly being flooded with toxins.
These carcinogens are flushed out during the colon hydrotherapy creating a boost in immune function.
Colonic hydrotherapy is a detoxifying program that helps promoting body healing along with other treatments.

A coffee enema is a type of colon cleanse used in alternative medicine. During the procedure, a mixture of brewed, caffeinated coffee and water is inserted into the colon through the rectum.
The first reference of the use of enemas for health was by the Egyptians in 1550 BC. A Greek physician from the first century thought ailments could be addressed with the right food, drink, and enemas.
During WWI, patients were often prepped for surgery with an enema to reduce the chance for infection. Later, functional medicine adopted this procedure as a way to increase the health of chronically ill patients.
Now the coffee enema protocol is being used by healthy individuals and to optimize their health. Coffee enemas are used by holistic physicians for all sorts of conditions including cancer. Lots of people find help with constipation, fatigue and liver detoxification.
Coffee enemas have their roots as part of the “Gerson Therapy” for cancer, developed by Max Gerson in the 1940’s.
Max Gerson was a German-American doctor who believed you could detox the body and give it the nutrients it needs to heal itself.
His program, using an organic plant-based diet, raw juices, supplements, specific enzymes and coffee enemas, became known as the Gerson therapy for cancer treatment.
It aims to get rid of toxins out of body and strengthen the body’s immune system. This way can bring the body back to normal metabolic state, and the body can heal itself.
What Is The Purpose Of A Coffee Enema?
Coffee enema can help Detoxify And Protect The Liver
Coffee is a significant source of antioxidants. It contains caffeine and some unique constituents that can be helpful to the liver. Two of the main constituents are Kahweol palmitate and Cafestol palmitate
The liver is the lifeline of the detoxification system. Supporting liver function can change the course of your health problem.
Kahweol palmitate and Cafestol palmitate can increase the level of glutathione in the intestines and the liver.
Glutathione is a vital detoxification antioxidant. It helps to prevent damage from reactive oxygen species and heavy metals. It breaks apart chemical carcinogens so our body can remove them. It can inhibit neoplasia, which is the growth of new, abnormal and uncontrolled tissue.
These new tissues can eventually become tumors. (Both cancerous and non-cancerous masses)
The less roasted the coffee beans, the higher the amount of these two powerful ingredients. These constituents may also help to suppress cancer growth.
How do we get these coffee constituents to go straight to the liver so it can upregulate glutathione?
About 6 inches inside the rectum are the veins which directly connect to the hepatic portal, which leads straight to the liver.
The caffeine in the coffee dilates these blood vessels. This increases the absorption of the coffee and its valuable constituents. The nutrient uptake happens much faster than drinking the coffee.
This process with the liver stimulates the release of bile from the liver. Proper bile flow is vital to the detoxification system! Our livers do a fantastic job of filtering our blood. It deposits all the waste products that need to get out of the body into the bile. Then this waste material gets removed in our stools.
Sometimes these toxins can build up and create a sludge that blocks the bile duct. If the bile cannot flow freely to the intestines, these toxins build up in the liver. This causes inflammation, leading to more health issues. It also can impair digestion and the ability to absorb nutrients fully.
Coffee enemas stimulate the gallbladder to contract. This helps to move out the toxins the liver wants to expel. Coffee enema can help unblock the bile duct.
Coffee Enemas Can Help Detoxify And Protect The Intestines
The main coffee constituents can also have potent detoxification effects in the intestines as well. Coffee enema can double your detoxification rate in the intestines. Glutathione has also been shown to increase. It can also help to create optimal function of our intestines.
Another health promoting part in coffee is theophylline. Theophylline reduces inflammation in both the liver and the intestines.
Coffee Enemas May Help With Depression And Anxiety
Balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system has important role in healthy issue.
In anxiety and depression, the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response) is working too hard. The parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest response) is too low. This can heighten anxiety and depression as well as our response to pain.
Coffee enema benefits include helping to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which helps with depression.
How To Complete A Coffee Enema?
Your first coffee enema might seem like a daunting task. But once you’ve done this process a few times, it will be much easier.
The first thing you will have to do is gather the equipment and supplies. This includes:
- The coffee – choose organic, light roasted or air roasted whole coffee beans (not decaffeinated coffee!)
- Organic blackstrap molasses, optional (to help retain the enema)
- Pure Water – distilled or filtered to remove chlorine, fluoride and other chemicals
- Coffee enema bucket or kit (we prefer the bucket since it is easy to clean)
- Coconut oil or some other lubricant for the end of the enema hose
- Soft towels for the bathroom floor
- Paper towels
The best time of day for this is in the morning after you have already had a bowel movement. Coffee is known to stimulate the brain, so doing this too late in the day could hinder your sleep patterns.
For your first one, choose a day that you are not rushed and can take your time with this process.
- Bring 4 cups of pure water to a boil. 2. Measure 4 tablespoons of organic coffee grounds into a French press (if available).
NOTE: The first time you do coffee enema, use only 1 teaspoon of coffee (can use less if you tend to be very sensitive to caffeine). After a few enema, you will see how much you can tolerate.
- Pour the boiling water in and let sit for 20 minutes. If desired, add 1 tablespoon of organic
blackstrap molasses during steeping. 4. Press down on the French press or strain with cheesecloth. (Using a paper coffee filter may
remove some of the very important kahweol and cafestol palmitate) 5. Let the coffee cool. You want it at body or room temperature. 6. Add any additional ingredients to enhance the enema solution. Then pour the solution into
your enema bucket or kit. Make sure the bucket isn’t too high. The solution will flow too fast. 18 inches is ideal. 7. Place towels on the floor and lie down on your right side with your knees bent. 8. Apply the coconut oil to the end of the enema hose. Gently insert the hose about 6 inches
into the rectum. 9. Unclamp the hose and slowly let about half of the enema solution flow in, about 2 cups.
Stop a bit sooner if you feel “full.” 10. Try to hold the solution in for about 15 minutes. Gently release it into the toilet. 11. Repeat with the remaining two cups of the solution if you’d like.
How long and How often?
➢ Suggestion to do one enema per day to assist detoxification or enhance liver activity. ➢ Two enemas daily may be taken during healing needed. ➢ For those who are very ill, several enemas a day may be best for at least a several months.
(Dr. Gerson use 6 coffee enemas daily for cancer patients) ➢ For best results, coffee enema should be carried on for a least a month, and can be continue
for several years.
BENEFITS OF COFFEE ENEMA
- Relieve constipation
- Boosts immunity
- increase energy
- Eliminate (or control) parasites, candida and other pathogens (without disrupting intestinal
- Removes toxin and heavy metals from the body
- Help in autoimmune diseases
- Help in depression, insomnia and cognitive problem
- Combination in cancer treatment
CAUTION AND COTRAINDICATIONS
➢ Those with anal or rectal fissures, or severe hemorrhoids, often have difficulty with coffee
enemas. Extra care is needed in inserting the enema tip. Some of these individuals find the coffee enema very difficult to do at all. Anyone using enema should do it carefully. Improperly administered enema can cause rectal bleeding and injury.
➢ Extensive use of enemas could result in dehydration.
➢ Overuse of coffee enemas could result in electrolyte imbalances.
➢ Caffeine enemas must be avoided by pregnant women and people with caffeine sensitivity.
➢ One may not have normal bowel movements for a while when doing one coffee enema daily. This is generally fine. However, one will need to do a quick plain water enema before the coffee retention enema to clean the colon if one has not had a bowel movement within about 6-19 hours before the coffee enema.
➢ When done properly, coffee enemas do not cause habituation, constipation or any rectal
Infrared sauna helps to remove waste from the body. Infrared waves can help stimulate the efficiency of various cells in our body. In parallel, it stimulates the elimination of waste and accumulated toxins in the body. It also helps stimulate the circulation of the lymphatic system in our body.
The infrared radiation can help stimulate 70% of the circulation in the body’s system. This treatment is also known to induce nutrients and oxygen to cells quickly, resulting in the cells recovery and energy production. With the improvements mentioned, it also helps the kidney and liver systems not to overwork.
Chelation therapy helps to eliminate toxins and heavy metals from the body. Chelation works to detoxify the blood vessels. Apart from the normal saline content, the Chelation infusion contains an amino acid compound called EDTA mixed with vitamins and minerals.
EDTA plays an important role in capturing heavy metals such as:
- excess calcium
They accumulate in the tissues and along the tube wall of the blood. Through Chelation, these heavy metals will be remove through the urinary system.
When there are a lot of toxins accumulated in the body, it may cause cell mutations. In addition, chelation can help reduce the chance of cancer recurrence by creating a suitable environment for the body to fight cancer.
