Coffee Enema, Quackery?

No comments

From the book, “Mum’s Not Having Chemo” by Laura Bond. (A book I highly recommend)

“Book into any holistic health retreat today and you’re likely to find colonics or enemas on the itinerary.  But it might surprise you to know that enemas are actually as conventional as they come.  ‘Every hospital was once equipped with colon hydrotherapy machines or enemas,’ says Matt Monarch a US-based raw-food guru.  ‘They were pretty much the first measure any nurse or doctor ever utilized when helping someone heal.’  ……

“While some might dismiss coffee enemas as a hippy fad, they were actually included in the Merk Manual — considered the coventional medical Bible — right up until 1977.   ‘When I spoke to the editor, he said the only reason they took them out was because they thought it was a little “folksy”,’ says Dr. Gonzalez.  “They wanted to put more high-tech stuff in.”

“Although coffee enemas might be written off as quackery, conventional medical literature is littered with research supporting their benefits.  For over a century, coffee enemas have been used to treat a wide range of illnesses, from migraines and eczema to septic shock and psychological disorders.  ‘I have a paper from 1922, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which describes how a group at Harvard Medical School successfully treated what we call today “bipolar”, with enemas,’ says Gonzalez.  “They got them off drugs and out of the hospital.’
