Max Gerson was the first to propose that coffee enemas had a positive effect on patients with cancer. Gerson taught that improved circulation and tissue integrity would prevent the spread of cancer and destroy malignant tumors. Although coffee enemas primarily facilitate excretion of toxic wastes from the liver, these enemas also flush out fat from the liver. Coffee enemas also promote the absorption of vitamin A, enabling patients to use copious amounts of vitamin A - especially when combined with juice fasting, which plays a vital role in immune function.
"Coffee enemas are not given for the function of the intestines but for the stimulation of the liver." ~ Max Gerson
