What led you to become a colonic therapist?
I was 22 when I first discovered colonics. Twenty-two years of being on earth found me depressed, stagnant, and fearful of doing anything that involved an investment that I didn't know for sure would pay off. But then my beloved grandma died. This sent me into an even further spiral of depression which frightened me so much that I determined that I needed to start doing things I was afraid of in order to pull myself out of the deep hole I had carved for myself. I certainly was terrified of colon therapy... what could it all mean for me? How is this going to change or not change my life? I had to take the plunge, to not know was worse than to know and be disappointed. I wasn't disappointed. Not even a bit.
What did you do before you became a colonic therapist?
I worked at organic and local grocery store before becoming a therapist. Ironically, it was at my previous work place that led me to discover a book that spoke of the necessity of colon therapy. Looking back, the seed to all of this incredible change in my life started at my humble job as a cashier at the grocery store.
What has been your greatest reward as a colonic therapist?
The greatest reward that I have received in being a therapist is being able to become more and more of a useful channel/instrument of help for others looking to improve. It's definitely a two way street, as the clients I work with make breakthroughs with their health, I am in turn inspired to go to greater heights of learning and experience to assist even further.
What is the most valuable lesson you've learned from this work?
The most valuable lesson that colon therapy has taught me is to respect and allow space for my body to be where it is at - to work as a team with my body. My body is my ally in achieving all the good that I desire, and is as interested as I am in becoming a better human being every day that I am alive.
What myth would you like to dispel about colonics?
Colonics do not wash out good bacteria from the gut! If anything, they help to repopulate the gut with the good bugs by creating a much more cleaner, and alkaline environment for them to set up home in. Retention of waste matter in the body creates an acidic environment, perfect for the exact opposite to happen! If someone needs help establishing better gut health, colonics are an invaluable tool in helping to create just that! :) Also, there is no set rule for how often people need to come in for colonics, it's different for everyone!
