Dr. Budwig did not talk about coffee enemas; however, this therapy would not interfere with the Budwig approach. Coffee enemas are one of the most effective ways to detoxify the liver and reduce pain. It´s advisable to start them at the beginning of any detox treatment. For the first 3 or 4 weeks into the program do one to three enemas every day to effectively cleanse the liver.
The caffeine absorbed into the enterohepatic circulation system through coffee enemas purifies the hepatic ducts (including the bile ducts) from toxins and also cleanses the sigmoid colon. It is a low-volume enema that remains only in the sigmoid colon.
The caffeine that is absorbed into the enterohepatic system causes the liver ducts, including the bile ducts, to empty out toxins (it causes the liver to “vomit” out toxins). Releasing the toxins into the hepatic ducts makes room for toxins from the body to enter the liver for detoxification. The alkaloids in the caffeine stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, which is an enzyme that facilitates the liver detoxification pathways.
Coffee enemas and baking soda baths are very useful for removing harmful lactate that the tumor is producing. They also vastly reduce the pain which many cancer patients experience. Chlorophyll enemas are also very rewarding (using ¼ liquid chlorophyll diluted in water). Green tea or chlorophyll enemas are not as useful for detoxifying the liver, but an excellent option from time to time.
As abnormal cells start to die off naturally, the body needs to purify itself to avoid self-poisoning. We recommend that you consult a specialist first.
