Editors Note: Most of the time, we try to keep the tone light and fun at Daily Shot Of Coffee. Today, we explore a more serious matter of Lyme Disease and how a coffee enema can be used to reduce to the reactions and symptoms. Please consult a doctor before using this treatment method.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by ‘Borrelia burgdorferi’. It is caused by ticks with black legs and they are the carrier of these bacteria. The ticks carry this after biting animals like mouse and deer and then transfer the bacteria to humans by biting them. Lyme disease originated in United States for the first time.
The symptoms are headaches, fever and chills, extreme fatigue and depression syndrome. It causes a skin rash in the form of a ring encircling a ring. The more chronic symptoms which develop, if left untreated for a long time include pain in joints and harsh effect on heart and central nervous system. If caught early, infection can be treated with antibiotics depending on the severity of the condition. It can also cause a stiff neck and bull’s eye rash and the rash keeps on increasing and expanding in size. The severe symptoms include paralysis and permanent weakness in muscles along with swelling in joints and knees. It can also lead to palpitations and skipped heartbeats.
The main risk factors which can increase the probability of occurrence of this disease are indulging in great amount of outdoor activities like hunting, gardening and hiking, where these ticks are commonly seen. Keeping pets infected with such ticks can increase the chances by manifolds and walking in suburban high grass areas can also lead to tick-bites. If indulging in any such kind of activity, one must cover shoes with full length pants and full sleeve shirts along with caps or hats to cover the head. It will provide a protection to the human body against such ticks because these ticks are very small and unnoticeable.
How coffee can be helpful?
Coffee is used as an enema product in Lyme’s disease. The enema helps in detoxification of the liver to get rid of the toxin build-up in the body. Coffee enema can be done at any time as per the convenience of the individual and it helps in dilating the bile ducts, thereby flushing the toxins. The procedure of coffee enema usually takes around 40-45 minutes. Enema is easy in morning hours after the clearance of the bowel system.
- Coffee which must be organic to eliminate the harmful effect of pesticides on the body. Normal coffee should be used and not a flavoured or decaf version of it.
- Tube (colon) which is 30 inches long.
- Enema bag, whatever be the shape and size.
- Lubricating agent which can be used for inserting the tube in the rectum with ease. Olive oil can also be used instead of lubricants.
Mix one cup of coffee with one cup of distilled water. The water should be warm and not very hot or cold. It should be boiled first and then allowed to cool. Never use Teflon coated pans for this purpose. Use only stainless steel and enamel coated cookware. The enema bag should be hanged after filling it with the prepared concoction. Lay on the right side of your body over a big mat or towel and lubricate the colon tube with the preferred lubricant. Insert the tube slowly and release the fluid at a slow pace. Check on the pressure and the flow of the water with the help of the clamp. Fill your colon with the fluid (app. 8 oz.), till it is easy to hold. Don’t be in haste, go slow and calm. Hold it for a few minutes, around 8-10 minutes in pretty good. After that, follow it with the expulsion of the held liquid. You can carry the enema along with soothing music to calm yourself and feel good about the detoxification process.
After completing the enema procedure drink a glass full of water to flush the toxins. It would be better if before taking up the enema process, you consult your doctor for the advice. It can be done three to four times in a week, till the pain subsides.
