Have you heard about the purported benefits of daily coffee enemas? A collection of recent website articles may have you feeling intrigued by the range of asserted health claims. However, I recommend reading this post before you do one.
As the Paleo community grows, many ideas from other alternative health communities are finding a foothold in Paleo. I believe some of these concepts are extremely positive (woot, meditation!) and others to be downright dangerous (yes, coffee enemas are a good example), and of course, there’s the entire world of gray in between.
Whenever I get asked if ‘X’ is a good idea, I go to the scientific literature (read more about my scientific background here). I look at epidemiological studies, mechanistic studies, and clinical trials to form the most complete picture possible about a given topic. And then, I try to communicate what science can tell us, with the nuances and the details, the pros versus the cons versus the unknowns, and without oversimplification—so that you can make an informed choice to best fit your individual needs.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
With the increasing alterations in people’s diets as well as the environmental changes and rise of everyday stress, the human body has increasingly begun to accumulate a dangerous amount of toxins which can alter overall health and wellness. Since approximately the 1930’s, coffee enemas have been utilized as a method to detoxify the body, however, various studies demonstrate the various benefits and risks of the procedure.
