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.
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
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
Back in New York for the summer we're missing the refreshing Kombucha tea that we perfected in Costa Rica. We left our SCOBY there after sharing ‘daughters’ with several friends. We serve a Kombucha "cocktail" for fun and for it’s renowned cleansing health benefits each day of our detox retreats. It nourishes our minds and bodies both in pleasant and profound ways. We thought we could share a few quotes so you might discover how and why Kombucha can be a healthful addition to
Water Kefir As a colon hydrotherapist the question always arises “What’s the best probiotic?” I've tried may of them hoping to find the ultimate supplement. Now I rarely take any – since I discovered water kefir. I love this stuff. It tastes a little like ginger ale crossed with champagne crossed with apple cider vinegar. It’s complex – instead of a few selected organisms it’s composed of at least 25 different species of micronutrients, enzymes, beneficial bacteria and yeasts
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
