In this day and age of living with toxins in our food, air, and water, what is your exit plan to rid these toxins out of your body?
In my 8-Week CHI Breakthrough Health Coaching Program with Diane Kazer, I was introduced to coffee enemas, the benefits, and the how-to do it yourself. Although I was at first terrified of the idea, I braved it out, purchased my kit, and gave it a shot.... a coffee shot....and I'm not gonna lie, my colon and liver loved it.
As a former librarian, I am a huge advocate of researching information, especially when it is related to my health. My big question was, are they safe and what is the long-term effect? After speaking to a few professionals, I've come to the realization that enemas have been around a lot longer than us and is an ancient healing practice with the intention of expelling waste and gas.

Having recovered from pneumonia, my body was feeling in need of a deep cleanse so I felt called to a short-term consistent practice of coffee enemas, and plan to continue it when I feel the call.
In total honesty, I have felt torn between the mixed reviews on coffee enemas.

But because I have had first-hand experience and had only positive results, I would love to share more on that.

As a former coffee addict who used to drink 2-3 cups of coffee in the morning and another one in the afternoon as a picker-uper, I had an extremely challenging time weaning off of it. Once I got through the headaches, afternoon crash withdrawals, I found myself content with coffee alternatives such as Dandy Blend and Teeccino.
The reason why I decided to go off of coffee was because I was experiencing the following:
So when I started my 8-week CHI Health Coaching Program with Diane Kazer, I was blown away by one of her recipes from the Warrior Cleanse e-Cookbook.
