Organic coffee infusion
I tend to use coffee mainly when the focus is detox as it improves the liver's ability to detoxify.
The coffee infusion contains caffeine, and it's the caffeine, theophylline and theobromine that combine to stimulate the relaxation of smooth muscles causing dilatation of blood vessels and bile ducts! The effects of having a coffee infusion are not the same as drinking coffee as the veins of the anus are very close to the surface of the tissue, hence the caffeine is easily and quickly absorbed (and in higher concentration) than it is when coffee is drunk.
Additionally, coffee has a chemical make up that is stimulative and the enzymes in coffee, known as palmitates, help the liver carry away the toxins in bile acid.
The coffee is absorbed into the hemorrhoidal vein and then taken up to the liver by the portal vein. With the bile ducts dilated, bile carries toxins away into the gastro-intestinal tract. Simultaneously, peristaltic activity is encouraged because of the flooding of the lower colon, so, when the colon is evacuated, the toxins and bile are carried out of the body and we are left with a happier and less toxic liver! This seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream.
The coffee contains some alkaloids that also stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, an enzyme used by the liver to make the detox pathways run. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione (a powerful antioxidan), one of the main conjugation chemicals, enabling toxins to be eliminated via bile into the small intestine. So in other words, a coffee infusion speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances.
I use wheatgrass more as it's high in nutrients, very healing and nourishing to the cells. Primarily though, it oxygenates the blood stream which improves energy levels and creates a more alkaline environment which is necessary to protect against disease.
Wheatgrass juice is almost identical to the red blood cell molecule, so it is like having a great blood infusion.
The juice is loaded with 92 trace minerals and nutrients. These can be passed directly to the liver doing it this way. The effect is even better than drinking wheatgrass juice or eating detox foods by themselves. At the end of your colonic, using wheatgrass helps replace the friendly bacteria and nourish the colon.
Wheatgrass is incredibly healing and nutritive to the cells of the colon, therefore helping in cases of diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis and crohn's disease.
