So I was so excited to be offered the opportunity to do an interview on The Food Heals Podcast! This is my new favorite podcast after Sean Croxton retired from Underground Wellness. (By the way–check him out now on “The Sessions with Sean”). My 45 plus minute commute to work is über long and the time passes quickly if I listen to a health podcast rather than the Smiley Morning Show. (Don’t get me wrong –I love Smiley but I feel more productive learning about my passion of reversing disease). I stumbled upon “The Food Heals Podcast” which has been called the “Sex & the City for Food” on iTunes. These two gals are super fun and share all kinds of great information. They even have a great documentary completely worth watching. “Food Heals”- is a film starring Joe Cross, John Salley, & Kerri Kasem who have used food over drugs to heal! Remember Joe Cross from the documentary “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead“? He’s the guy with the sexy Australian accent that was able to overcome chronic urticaria (AKA –REALLY BAD ITCHY HIVES ALL OVER THE BODY) by going on a juice fast. Fortunately, the universe was in my favor when they asked me to share Susan’s empowering story. She was able to overcome an autoimmune disease by changing her diet and removing processed foods (Red Dye #40)

So this weekend I am painting my 8-year-old daughter’s room (bright teal for the DIVA EMMA) and I have been catching up on my new favorite podcast! The Food Heals Podcast— I just listened to the truly inspirational story of Evita Ramparte. In the year 2000, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and began an enlightening journey of detoxification and emotional and physical healing thru changing her diet. She was inspired by a lady on New Year’s Eve who gave her set instructions on how to heal. She starts this whole process off by fasting and doing a COFFEE ENEMA— yep you heard me —-EEk !!! The podcast hosts (Suzy and Allison) had me rolling on the floor laughing when they exclaimed “We’re putting it in the Wrong Hole!” So far-I’m with them–I like to drink my coffee and maybe on a whim, put the coffee grounds in my garden.
My initial thought was on the logistics of how to actually do the enema. Do you use organic coffee? Does it have to be warm? How do you do that without your family finding out? Do your farts start smelling like hazelnut?????
I may have been a little high on paint fumes after that second coat of primer because when I stumbled upon a great link on how to do a coffee enema while perusing Facebook, I felt like the Universe was luring me into this world of detox and poop! My friend Dr Christopher Nagy (Yourpersonalwellness.com) is always sharing a wealth of holistic information and I figured if he thinks it’s post worthy –it’s worth checking out.
I haven’t tried it yet but after reading all the health benefits — I may actually do it —Don’t worry- I won’t post pictures!
Here is the LINK that Dr Nagy shared on liver detoxification and coffee enemas –I found it quite informative http://www.mygutsy.com/the-ultimate-liver-detox-coffee-enemas
There is great information in this post. She explains the many functions of the liver and how to determine if you have symptoms of a toxic liver. Oh yes– and step by step instructions on how do one at home.
Coffee enemas aren’t a new concept –They have been used for years and were popular in healing cancer at the famous The Gerson Institute. For more information on Dr. Max Gerson and his cancer treatments –see this BLOGPOST
