Special Presentation by Dr. Kenneth Fine

Our Intestinal Health Institute is having a wonderful health education event this March to which you are all invited. Dr Ken Fine will be giving a talk. Here are the details!
Gluten-Sensitivity and Other Inflammatory Aspects of Our Modern World:
An Introduction to 'Anti-Inflammatory Living'

by Dr. Kenneth Fine

When: Monday, March 19, 2007; 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Location: Tucson Jewish Community Center, 3800 E River Road (Dodge), in the Jewish Heritage Center

The presentation is free and open to the public.
Dr. Fine is a board-certified internal medicine doctor and gastroenterologist, professionally involved in patient care, medical research, and teaching for over 18 years. The presentation will focus on the latest science, age-old wisdom, and common sense solutions to combat and remedy the ill-effects of gluten and other inflammatory aspects of the modern world we live in: intestinal disorders, chronic inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, fibromyalgia, chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue and depression.

I would love to have you come to the talk and bring your friends and family. This is a great opportunity to inspire and educate you. The spring season is a great time to take the next step in your healing and transformational process.

Spring and Equinox are typically times of cleansing as we let go of the old and we nurture the new. Consider an intestinal, liver or parasite herbal cleanse combined with dietary shift and colon hydrotherapy. Bring in the NEW YOU!

Here are Dr Fine's websites so that you may review prior to the lecture:

School News

We graduated another student in February and are looking forward to another great year of teaching and training in Colon Hydrotherapy in 2007!

I have asked that students interested in taking our Program please take the time to read the catalog, application and enrollment forms in detail. That is the first step.

The next step would be to read over carefully the prerequisites of the Program. There are 60 hours of important preparation in advance of attending the six-day intensive. Part One of the prerequisites consists of two courses, one in Anatomy and Physiology, the other in Business Mastery3. Part Two consists of reading two texts relating to the overall GI system as well as the most congenial diet for the GI tract. Part Three are the two texts that I send you. I have formulated my own written materials that I mail to you along with the Safety Manual. The prerequisite process takes about one to two months to complete. The written information prepares you very well for entry into the residential component of the Program - the six-day intensive in Tucson combining lecture and practicum.

It concerns me that some students wish to rush the entrance process and do not fully understand the depth and seriousness of the field, the need for a fully prepared and focused presence in the classroom and treatment room.

The Intestinal Health Institute offers the best education possible in Colon Hydrotherapy. I want each student to represent that excellence in his or her practice. I encourage you to come well prepared and focused for the six-day Program. Please write me with any concerns or questions you may have.

Continuing Education

My brother, Michael Shea Ph.D., is offering a four-day Abdominal Visceral Manipulation workshop from April 12-15, in Tucson AZ. Upon graduation, you will receive 26 CEU hours certified by the NCBTMB. Check out the sites below for registration information: This note from Michael explains a little more about Visceral Manipulation. If you want to register, you can contact me by phone or email. We have a few spaces left for this awesome seminar!
Dear Amy,

Thank you for your note. The cost of the class in Tucson is $495. It requires a deposit of $200 to hold your space in class. The class is limited to a maximum of 20 students to ensure your learning. I learned the work from its founder, Dr. Barral, in France. He has written five books on the subject. This basic class goes over the organs of the liver, intestines and bladder. Techniques will be learned to help these organs move in a normal direction. The hands on work will involve not only palpating the organs themselves, but feeling how they might be restricted with the tissues that are attached to them.

This is really good work for massage therapists and colon hydrotherapists or anyone doing rehab work on the body. We will learn not only direct, but also indirect and gentle technique for the intestines. This includes learning how the organs develop and their adult anatomy and physiology. Plus I like to have a lot of fun and I anticipate that this will be a really fun class.

I look forward to meeting you. Please call me at the number below if you want to talk further.

Julianne's Corner

Julianne has been in India since February 21 and I have been holding down the fort in her absence! Julianne is completing a Kundalini Yoga Certification Program and she had the opportunity to study in India as part of her certification training. She returns on Friday, March 9. Over the weekend she will attend another 2-day training that is part of the Program.

And big news! Julianne is opening her own yoga studio at the Intestinal Health Institute office. She will begin private and group classes on Monday, March 12. She is taking appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays. If this is something that speaks to you, call or email Julianne or me.
