Okay. What. Is. A. Coffee Enema?! First of all, you'll need to know what a normal enema is. If you don't know what it is, consider yourself lucky, then click the link above! Basic enemas are a solution of water and sodium phosphate in high enough concentration that water actually leaves tissues near the colon. Water does this because of a law called osmosis. Osmosis is water's way of trying to balance concentrations of liquid. Water likes to go to places with higher concentration so it can dilute them. Now that you know what a regular enema is, it's time for coffee enemas! These bad boys are basically the same idea, but with coffee instead of sodium phosphate. Apparently people use coffee enemas to help detoxify the liver; the idea is to wake up the liver so it creates more glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant that your body makes, and one of its jobs is to detoxify! Coffee enemas are becoming quite popular, and some people are even addicted to them. Here's another person who is probably addicted to enemas. Have you ever tried a normal enema, or even a coffee enema? Please comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts!
