Colon Hydrotherapy and Healing the Gut Naturally!
An introduction to my services:
Articles now include all my articles for Natural Awakenings (23), researched intestinal health articles and archived newsletters.
Attain your greatest gut health!
This site is a primer on intestinal health and colon hydrotherapy. The goal is to introduce you to the intestines and of their central role in health and healing. The gut is the core that must be healed before all other systems in the body heal.
We can start the healing process at any point. The intestines are a great place to begin and continue the healing process and the unification of self. The intestines are the foundational place to begin. Taking care of our center opens communication to our whole body and nature.
The Gastrointestinal (GI) system is the metabolic center that connects all other systems. The gut is the metabolism, the system that takes in nutrients, breaks down our nutrients allowing us to build energy, and then recycles, restores and eliminates the internal by-products when we rest and fast. They are designed to receive, distribute, and recycle matter and energy in a continuous flow. They are related to every system of the body.
Since practicing colon hydrotherapy, I am familiar with metabolic syndrome as the predominant condition affecting and afflicting people. Metabolic Syndrome is a set of biological markers indicating metabolic damage to the body. That damage is the gateway to the major degenerative pandemics: diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Metabolic syndrome begins with inflammation of the GI system and spreads from there.
- I help clients recognize metabolic syndrome, and then heal it naturally. A goal is to impart knowledge to clients and patients that support the beneficial transformation of their metabolic health. Understanding and sharing metabolic knowledge is critical so that we might heal the gut and hence our body.
- I use massage techniques during the colon hydrotherapy sessions drawing on extraordinary techniques of massage from many traditions. Intestinal points and meridians from reflexology, shiatsu, acupressure, and acupuncture correspond to every body part and vice-versa.
- I share my insights from 43 years of practice in colon hydrotherapy and my journey of healing from constipation, migraines and eating disorders.
- I include Concierge as one of my colon hydrotherapy services designed for those who are working on a specific issue or condition.
- The Concierge includes colonics, research, classes and consults.
- Colon hydrotherapy is indicated for Colonoscopy Preparation as well as before and after surgery.
My Colon Hydrotherapy page offers information on making appointments, individual and package costs, educational articles, our Health Questionnaire and more so that you may have an excellent colon hydrotherapy session.
Gut healing nutritional programs
I promote REAL FOOD as my nutritional base. I focus on 2 nutritional and lifestyle programs that heal and seal the gut wall and reseed the good microbes. The key programs I work with and follow myself are Gut and Paychology Syndrome (GAPS™) by Natasha Campbell-McBride MD (2010) and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) by Elaine Gottschall MS (Breaking the Vicious Cycle).
I am familiar and work with ketogenic, raw vegan, and carnivore diets. I am interested in the ancestral traditions that are most beneficial for us, that make us the most evolved beings we are capable of. The main goal is to heal and seal the gut wall and reseed the good microbes. When we do this, our whole physical, emotional and mental faculties heal from healing the gut. The gut is the goal!
From time to time, I give classes on recipes for the GAPS™ and SCD to teach the simple basics of their foundational principles and to create delicious dishes. We can only be successful on our nutritional program when we have conquered hunger and craving. GAPS™ and SCD undermine and heal the hunger and craving that come from processed foods, carbohydrates and seed oils.
I counsel people on these nutritional programs and hold culinary classes to promote the natural healing that comes from a REAL FOOD nutrition program.
I work with many forms of detoxification and many detox product companies.
Water therapies detoxify the bowel: enemas and colonics.
Plant nutrition cleanses the gut and body.
Fasting and autophagy give the gut a break and allow healing and regeneration to occur in the gut and body.
I am knowledgeable about high quality protocols for detoxing your bowel, liver, kidneys and parasites as part of your overall detox and rebuild program.
Some are doing chelation therapy with their naturopath and are receiving colon hydrotherapy during that time.
Some doctors send people for colon hydrotherapy while they are detoxing to heal Lyme and mold issues.
Cleansing the body is possible.
Cleansing the body occurs anytime you make a REAL FOOD nutritional choice rather than a processed food choice.
Be in touch with me to help you plan a detox and guide you through it. Contact me via phone, email or text.
We now offer you Colonoscopy Preparation using Colon Hydrotherapy. More hospitals and doctor’s offices around the country are offering colon hydrotherapy for colonoscopy preparation. Please see my Colon Hydrotherapy page for the protocol.
“A major deterrent to patients receiving a potentially life-saving colonoscopy is the difficult pre-procedure preparation. Colon hydrotherapy is not only gentler, it is as good or better at cleaning the colon than traditional methods.”
“As an alternative to some of the intolerable bowel preps for colonoscopies, Barton Health purchased a colon hydrotherapy system in March. Colon hydrotherapy is a method of cleansing the entire colon using warm, filtered water. Hydrotherapy has shown to be more effective and better tolerated than the standard methods of bowel prep for colonoscopy.”
“The procedure is quite easy and painless for patients,” said Barton’s G.I. nurse. “All of the patients who have experienced colon hydrotherapy have been very pleased with the procedure.”
Barton’s GI nurse has performed more than 2,000 colon hydrotherapy procedures throughout her career.”
