This week Laura developed problems doing her coffee enemas. She had acid reflux (burning from her throat to her stomach) and has been unable to hold the coffee/chamomile tea mix in for the full 12 minutes. She is already on a special soothing formula of 6 oz of coffee concentrate, 8 oz of chamomile tea and 10 oz water. But it seems that even this can cause problems.
The culprit, we discovered, is the preparation of the coffee concentrate. If the coffee is accidentally boiled instead of simmered for 15 minutes, it gets too strong. Also, sometimes the coffee sits around waiting to be strained and this too creates a noxious brew. Laura’s system is now exquisitely sensitive. There was a time when she could down 4 shots of espresso at breakfast and feel invigorated. But those days are gone.
