Is the coffee enema necessary?

Yes. Since during a juice fast you are not consuming any or very little fiber you require a way to have bowel movements and release fecal matter. You might be surprised by how you will keep releasing solid matter even after days and even weeks without eating any solid foods.

Yet the greatest advantage of the coffee enema is the effects it has on your liver and blood. Here is what the Gerson Institute has to say about coffee enemas:

“As the juices begin rebuilding the body and encouraging toxins to be released from the cells into the bloodstream, a great deal of stress is placed upon the liver. The liver alone cannot deal with a sudden influx of toxins into the bloodstream. The coffee enemas increase liver filtering, greatly aiding the liver’s ability to remove serum toxins.

Coffee enemas are used to increase the liver’s detoxification capacity. Certain substances in the coffee stimulate an important detoxification enzyme in the liver as well as dilate the bile ducts and increase the flow of bile. A secondary benefit of the coffee enema is to increase peristalsis which helps to empty the bowel.”
