This is a guest post by Alexis Bonari.
We usually hear about enemas and think, “…that’s gross!” or “…isn’t that what my grandparents used to do?”
It’s amazing to think that we don’t grasp how important it is to keep our insides clean.
We maintain our cars better than our bodies.
We take the car in for an oil change because if we don’t the oil builds up, creates a sludge and stops working properly.
Now think of everything we put into our bodies and everything that doesn’t make it out.
Ways to Detox?
There are so many things we can do to detox our bodies little by little each day.
The following are some of the ways I like to detox…
I love detox tea, especially when you think you might be getting a cold. 1 cup 3 times a day flushes away any impurities you may have in your system, preventing you from getting sick.
Not to mention, drinking a cup a day on a daily basis will maintain your immune system and keep you healthy.
Drinking aloe vera juice in the morning too helps clean your blood and organs to maintain proper body flow and beautiful hair and skin.
Another thing I love to do is drink liquid chlorophyll. It is an amazing internal deodorizer and it helps to oxygenate the blood for better breathing and blood flow.
In the morning if you want to kick start you metabolism and get into gear, drink a 3 spoonfuls of lemon with a pinch of Cayenne pepper and honey. You will feel amazing!
Infrared saunas are amazing for detoxing as well. So are regular saunas.
Did you know that when you sweat, you release millions of toxins stored in your body. That’s why it is important to shower after and get them off as soon as possible to not have them re absorb into your skin.
Dry brushing can also help your body tone and detox. You can a brush with bamboo bristles and brush from your feet counterclockwise toward your heart. This helps circulation and blood flow. It also helps to detoxify your body naturally.
Coffee enemas anyone…?
Now lets talk a bit about the benefits of the coffee enema verses just water.
Coffee enemas date back to 1917, but the benefits on the liver were claimed by a German scientist in the 1920’s.
Water alone does not cleanse the liver or detoxify.
The best part of coffee enemas is that it will not waste minerals and electrolytes. The coffee enema is safe even if you have a sensitivity to caffeine because the coffee remains in the colon where it will not be absorbed, just be careful to not put the enema bag to high.
It also cleans you out so well that it helps to also maintain your flat stomach and keep you regular. If you ever feel stopped up,its better then a stimulating laxative that will give you cramps.
Coffee Enema “Recipe”
Here is a recipe for a great detoxifying coffee enema and what you will need to buy.
Reusable enema bag
How to prepare
Pour eight cups of filtered water into a pot and bring it to a boil. Add as many heaped tablespoonfuls of ground organic coffee. Use a French Press, if available, to strain of the right temperature, it is better to make a mistake on the lower side rather than risking burning your innards. Pour the coffee into the enema bag, making sure the value is switched off, and hang it no higher than one meter from the floor. Turn on the valve to let the air out and let the coffee flow to the end of the tube before closing the value again. Spread a thin layer of lubricant at the end of the tube about two inches high.
Lie down on your right side, with your right leg straight and left leg bent. Insert the tube into the rectum about two inches deep. Open the valve and let the coffee flow for about two to three minutes, or until the bag is drained. Remove the tube and retain the enema for ten to twenty minutes, and change your position a few times.During it just relax, Put on some music you like . If you feel cramping try shifting from one side to the other or lay on your back.When the time comes for bathroom fun, make sure you do so without pushing.
Should be repeated every day for a week or so, to really feel the benefit.
You should be able to feel your insides churning slightly, if you don’t you might want to increase the concentration of coffee, but not beyond two tablespoonfuls per cup.
The best part of all of this is that not only are you taking care of your health, but when your done the whole bathroom smells like Starbucks.
Trust me, you’ll thank me for it.
