Body Detoxification

In reality, a person very rarely dies of cancer. It is always starvation and toxicity. As the malignant tumor grows it gives off waste products which must be eliminated through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. These waste products accumulate and gradually overburden the body. Most persons then die of toxemia.

Metabolically, the counselee must give serious consideration to the detoxification process even before he starts the metabolic supplements mentioned in Chapter IV and the proper diet mentioned in Chapter VI. It is imperative that he carefully follow the detoxification processes after he starts rebuilding the body and taking supplements.

Before any disease can be resolved, the waste products and impurities must be cleansed from the body. The sooner this is accomplished, the quicker the body can repair. This is particularly true of cancer and is a continual ONGOING PROCESS, and the following steps must be taken.


  1. Purging - Immediately upon rising take one tablespoonful of Epsom salts dissolved in a half glass of water. In thirty minutes repeat this. Repeat again in thirty minutes. (Three doses.) The following alkalizing punch may be taken after two hours as you become hungry. One glass every hour, if desired.

Alkalizing Punch: Juice of 6 fresh lemons, 12 oranges, 6 grapefruit place in gallon glass jar and fill with reverse osmosis with filtered water.

An orange or grapefruit may be eaten in the evening. The purge must be repeated for two additional days, or a total of three days.

During the purge, the body may undergo some rather uncomfortable sensations such as nausea, headaches, cramps, and dizziness. This is a result of the cleansing. Poisons that have accumulated for years are suddenly dumped and this is quite a shock for the system. These sensations are temporary and will disappear when the poisons are finally removed fom the body. Purging must be repeated every 30 days (once a month) for a year.

B. Fasting - After three days of purging a fast must be started. The fast should also last three days. We are now giving the body a rest and an opportunity to cleanse itself of much waste on the individual cell level. Some discomfort may also be experienced during the fast. Each day of the fast one quart of fresh carrot juice and one pint of celery juice should be taken, along with all the reverse osmosis filtered water desired. It is best to dilute the fresh juice with equal parts reverse osmosis filtered water.

It is important to remember that unless sufficient fluids are taken the poisons become concentrated and are not eliminated in the natural way.

C. Enemas - Starting the same day as the fast, a high enema should be given.

A high enema, using coffee, should be taken every day. The coffee enema is very stimulating to the liver and is the greatest aid in elimination of the liver's toxic wastes.

The coffee enema, besides stimulating liver detoxification, also has beneficial effects in cleaning the colon. Coffee is an excellent solvent for encrusted wastes accumulated along the walls of the colon. Its caffeine content also directly stimulates the peristaltic muscle to contract more powerfully and loosen such deposits, which are occasionally visible as hard, black material and "ropes" of mucus. Gradually, as the protein metabolism of the body improves, the muscle tone of the bowel becomes normal without the aid of the enema.

Essentially, the coffee enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed - that of eliminating in 1 to 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature.

At first, most people dislike enemas and have psychological barriers against them. This aversion is brought about by ignorance of the purpose and function of the enema, as well as misunderstanding of the proper procedure for taking it. I have observed, however, that the persons most opposed to enemas soon reverse their prejudices and become the most avid supporters of them! In many cases, the enema relieves distress and gives a sense of well-being and cleanliness never before experienced. The proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill health.

It is most desirable to take the coffee enema early in the morning and it may be repeated again in early afternoon and/or evening, depending upon the toxic condition of the body. Enemas using coffee in the afternoon or evening may interfere with sound sleep. If enemas are needed at these times, many patients prefer to use only warm pure water, omitting the coffee. But it is better to take coffee at these times also, and a weaker solution to permit sleep would be better than not using coffee at all.


How to take a Coffee Enema

Just before bedtime each day, make a pot of coffee (2 quarts). Unplug coffee pot and allow to cool to room temperature.

It is best to arise early enough each morning to allow time to take the enema in a relaxed, unhurried state.

Steps for the proper procedure are:

1. The coffee must be regular, non-instant, non-decaffeinated coffee. It must be prepared in enamel ware, Corning Ware, glass or stainless steel, or by the tricolator filter method. Aluminum or teflon should not be used at any time! We have found that coffee which is unboiled or prepared via the "drip method" is preferable. Use 2 to tablespoons of ground coffee to 1 quart of Filtered water. Any water that enters into the body should be REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTERED WATER.

For many years I have purchased my filter from Mr. Warren Clough of Ozark Water Service, 114 Spring Street, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas, 72768 (800)-835-8908.

If a coffee enema makes a person jittery, shaky, nervous, nauseated, or light-headed, the coffee solution is too strong. The amount of coffee can be adjusted from 1 teaspoon to 4 tablespoons per quart of water as tolerance level permits.

Some people - children especially - can take and retain only a pint of enema solution at a time.

Upon rising each morning plug in the coffee pot for a few seconds to bring coffee to body temperature; unplug and take the morning coffee enema in three stages:

A. Place 2 cups (one pint) of coffee in your enema bag;

1) Use a Fleet bag enema. A disposable large volume plastic bag, an over the counter item from the local pharmacy or hospital supply outlet. This enema bag lasts about 2 years.

2) Place a colon tube (DAVOL) size 24 French or 26 French or 28 French on the end of the plastic tube from the enema bag. This colon tube is a soft flexible rubber-like tube around 30 inches in length. It follows the curves and flexure of the colon. The colon tube is usually inserted about 12 to 24 inches into the rectum. Available also as an over the counter item is a plastic rectal tube about 18 long, which some people prefer because of stiffness (Size 24 French).

B. After the first stage of the coffee is held for 15 minutes, then expel.

C. Now, take the second stage of the coffee enema, 3 cups, and hold for 15 minutes, then expel.

D. Then, take the third stage of the coffee enema, 3 cups, and hold for 15 minutes and expel.

2. Attempt a normal bowel movement. The enema is much more effective if the colon has been evacuated. One should not become disturbed, however, if there are no regular bowel movements, or very few, during this program. In many cases, not enough bulk collects to instigate a normal bowel movement. 'When no normal bowel movements are forthcoming, the enema cleans the colon adequately.

Bulk formers such as Metamucil (obtainable at the drug store and taken as directed), or 2 tablespoons of miller's bran with each meal (obtainable at the health food store) are quite helpful in forming stools and thereby creating more normal bowel movements for those who take enemas daily.

3. Occasionally, one finds it is impossible to hold the enema. Often we found taking a laxative helps move the feces along and the next enema time is successful,

A. The colon tube should be lubricated with natural creamery butter, Vitamin E cream, or other lubricant that doesn't contain additives or chemicals.

B. Next, allow the coffee to flow to the end of the colon tube, thus eliminating any air in the tube.

C. Insert the tube 12-18 inches into the rectum, if possible. This should be done slowly, in a rotating motion that helps to keep the tube from "kinking up" inside the colon.

D. There are several positions that can be used while inserting the colon tube. Squatting is one. There is also the knee-chest method, with chest and knees on the floor and buttocks in the highest position possible. Most people, however, find it easiest to lie on the left side until the solution is out of the bag or can. The enema should never be taken while sitting on the toilet or standing.

E. Some people's colons have kinks or turns that may prevent the tube from being inserted even 18 inches. Often, if a little bit of the solution is allowed to flow into the colon as the tube is being inserted, one can comfortably get past these kinks.

F. If a kink bends the tube too much and stops the flow of liquid, then the tube can be inserted only as far as it will go, still allowing the liquid to flow freely.

G. Sometimes, if one hits a kink that stops the flow of the liquid completely, the tube can be pulled out slowly just to the point where the solution is felt flowing again. Frequently, the tube can be pushed back in, past the turn that previously stopped the liquid.

H. Because of the shapes and formations of some people's colons, or of course if a child is being given the enema, it will be possible to insert the tube only a few inches. Occasionally, this is a permanent situation. Often, however, as the colon is cleansed and healed, the tube can eventually be inserted further.

I. The tube should never be forced when discomfort occurs.

J The enema bag should not be over 36 inches higher than the rectum. If it is placed too high, the coffee runs into the colon too fast and under too much pressure, causing discomfort.

K. After the flow of the solution is completed, one may remove the colon tube, although it isn't necessary to do so. Regardless of the position used up to this point, one now should lie on the left side for at least 5 minutes, then on the back for another 5 minutes, then on the right side for at least 5 minutes.

L. Those who have excessive gas may leave the tube in the colon with the hose clamp open. This allows gas to escape through the enema container. Frequently, the coffee will go in and out of the enema can or bag until the gas is relieved.

M. After the enema is retained for 15 minutes or longer, it may be expelled.

N. One is now ready for the rest of his daily routine clean and refreshed!



The kidneys filter approximately 4,000 quarts of blood daily. The wastes, largely urea, are eliminated and the acid/alkaline balance is maintained. Plenty of liquids should be taken daily. The pharmaceutical diuretics may be taken, but natural diuretics are more desirable. There are many, but the one that works well for us is the juice of one lemon in a cup of hot water twice a day, mid-morning and mid-afternoon. This should he taken for several months, especially during the winter. In kidney disease the protein intake should be limited and extra vitamins and minerals taken.


Life is dependent upon the adequate exchanges of gases in the lungs. The most significant is the removal of carbonic acid and the flow of oxygen into the blood. Many other impurities are given off by the lungs. Diet is very important, and the mucous forming foods should be avoided.

One thing that many people overlook is that of irrigating the nose each morning. This is best accomplished by sniffing water into the nose and then blowing it out. This should be repeated several times. Once the nose is cleansed, deep breathing should be started. For about 12 minutes each day one should breathe as deeply as possible in the fresh air.


Many people overlook the skin as an organ and do not think of it as an organ of detoxication. As this is utilized, all manner of eruptions, odors, colors, and blemishes will appear on the skin. These conditions will disappear as the body becomes purified.

We have found it best to take a hot shower, each morning, using plenty of soap. The hair must be shampooed frequently. After the shower sit in a tub of water with one cup of apple cider vinegar added. This helps alkaline/acid balance. Then the skin should be rubbed briskly with a towel until a warm glow is felt.

Every fourth night the cancer victim should be rubbed from head to toe with a mixture of olive oil and castor oil in equal parts. Then a hot soaking bath for 15 minutes to allow the oil to penetrate. This is followed by going to bed under heavy covers for about one hour to sweat the poisons out. Then a cleansing shower is taken. This may be discontinued after three months.



In almost every case of cancer, particularly those cases of long standing, the protein from the muscles has been used to maintain life. In other words protein metabolism has been so poor that the body had to take protein from the muscles and, to a very great degree, the muscles are destroyed.

After the cancer is destroyed, the muscles begin to rebuild. This takes approximately three years. If the muscles are exercised strenuously during this time hernias may develop. For this reason we have found it best to replace strenuous exercise with a brisk walk at least once a day for three years following cancer therapy.
