Science has now officially proved it, walking in the woods is good for your health! No water necessary, "forest bathing" cleanses, balances and heals by taking in the forest atmosphere. Just mindful walking, unhurried quiet exploring. Breathing in the fragrance of the forest. Opening your senses to the sights, sounds and scents that surround you. A popular activity in Japan, they have been conducting studies for the past 30 years on forest bathing and have discovered many hea
We won't be serving this at CRJR but we're serving it in our house in NY this week, as the first snow falls. I love it when I’m ahead of the curve, the satisfaction of saying “I knew about that years ago!” Suddenly bone broth is everywhere. The real satisfaction is knowing that these ancient healing remedies are being revived. Now that fall is here, cold raw foods and juices just do not have the same appeal. Yet as the weather changes sometimes it feels like we need a reset.
Practiced for centuries by cultures around the world, including the Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine systems, a detox retreat is about resting, cleansing and nourishing the body and mind. Today, doing a detox has become a bit of a fad with lots of products, programs, and advice out there. Of course that brings out the other side, usually doctors, the "experts", who say it's all nonsense. For example, WebMd says your organs are always cleansing themselves so there's no need to "
Working at a health retreat I find myself engaged in conversations about what to eat to be healthy. There's a lot of devotion out there to various systems; vegan, paleo, raw, and so on... In the midst of it I feel obligated to stand for my perspective that we're all different, and we may even be different today than we were yesterday or will be next week. With that in mind I wanted to share here the foods that my colon loves, maybe yours will too! 1. Water So simple but serio
The colonic cabin has closed it's doors for the season here in Upstate New York. Thirteen years, over 3000 colonics, and I am still unraveling the mysteries of the colon. Every year I make new discoveries, find new ways to connect and coax the colon to let go, to free it from the old and find a new healthy beginning. I still love to see the amazement of people when they see how much they've been carrying around. It happens here every day, over and over, letting go on many lev
So many things have been written about the path to good health, often contradicting each other. We here at CRJR do not represent any one particular way. We love to stay up to date on the latest research in health and learn from different systems. We encourage our participants to try things out and observe what works for them. Our cleansing retreat is a reset, a time to clear out the past and renew your commitment to your physical and mental well being. Some of you have asked
Even if you can't make it to our Mariposa cleanse this year I hope you are taking care of yourself! Most of us need a spring cleaning or post- holiday reset. As you create your own program for detoxing, be sure to include coffee enemas. As I mentioned in my last post, I probably have more conversations about enemas than almost anyone. People are surprised and intrigued when I say that if I do an enema I always do a coffee implant. It's my reward for doing the enema. It's kind
Cleaning your colon- 5 tips to make enemas easy! If you want powerful results from your cleanse it's essential to do something to clean your colon. There are lots of powders and pills out there, some better than others. But how about the most ancient, simple and basic method, the enema. It's amazing how easily we put unknown formulas through our digestive system but are squeamish about pure warm water. As a colonic therapist, veteran of over 2500 colonics, I have had more con

Did you know that bowel problems, in some form or another, trouble almost 70 million people in America? When your colon gets congested with stagnant waste, toxins get reabsorbed back into the system, polluting your inner environment. Called autointoxication, this may be a contributory factor to almost every disease. A build up of fecal matter along the colon walls poses a serious interruption in waste removal at a cellular level, which in turn adversely affects many of the bo
