Colon Hydrotherapy Love Fest


This month has been a love fest for colon hydrotherapy. More and more docs are coming around to the importance of colon hydrotherapy for overall detoxification and healing. Two doctors one from Switzerland who gave a 4-day workshop in Tempe AZ and another from Scottsdale AZ have promoted the use of colon hydrotherapy in all their protocols. All roads lead to healing the intestines in order to heal the whole body! The truth is out.


From February 27 to March 2, 2014, Dr Rau, Director of the Paracelsus Clinic  in Switzerland, taught to an audience of predominantly doctors, dentists, chiropractors, naturopaths and acupuncturists the protocols of 'biological medicine' that he uses at his clinic. My sister-in-law, Cathy Shea and I were the only colon hydrotherapists attending. Dr Rau took time to promote Cathy's recently published book on Colon Hydrotherapy to the audience. What an honor.


Dr Rau has a 3-phase approach for all chronic health problems at Paracelsus.

  • Detoxify and restore regulation 
  • Normalize intestinal health and bacterial flora
  • Regenerate and rebuild the body cell by cell

Dr Rau believes detoxification is the key to all healing. The 3 most frequent methods to resolve chronic diseases are heavy metal detox, supplementing with fatty acids and vitamins and overcoming hyperacidity and hyperproteinization. (It's more like sugar in this country!) Colonics and the Paracelsus Liver detox program are 2 major ways he does this! He has 2 colonic treatment rooms at the clinic. One building in his clinic is devoted to biological dentistry. Remember! The mouth is part of the GI system and has been filled with toxic metals and root canals over the years.


Dr Rau has developed an Intestinal Kit Protocol, a 35-day program, to provide a foundation for achieving optimum intestinal health. The Kit along with specific diet changes are 2 simple tools to restore your gut health. A client and I are planning to do the 35-day program beginning April 14! Let me know if you are interested and we can do it together! Or pick a time that is beneficial for your schedule and give the gut Protocol a try. He describes his protocol diet that accompanies the Kit is his books Swiss Secrets to Optimal Health and Biological Medicine.


And if that is not enough, I include quotes from Dr Martha Grout MD and MD(H) of the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine in Scottsdale AZ. An Alphabet of Good Health in a Sick World is the name of her book. A number of my clients go to Dr Grout. One of them brought me a copy of her book! A good read.


"The best way to relieve blockage in the colon is through improved nutrition, not eating things you are allergic or sensitive to, increasing fiber (fruits and veggies) and cleaning out the colon with colonics."


Dr Grout mentions colonics for asthma is these words: "to clean out the colon, reducing the inflammation in the intestinal tract and thereby reducing the level of inflammation throughout the body."


On autoimmune conditions she says, " We show you how colonics and probiotics work to replace the damaging bacteria in the gut with ones which are actively helpful."


Dr Grout states that for chronic disease and inflammation it takes an "integrative approach to put out the fire. With colonics, you can reduce the overall toxic burden by emptying and washing out the colon which then frees it to accept more of what needs to be eliminated."


Even for heart disease, she believes colon hydrotherapy is part of the overall program because it is a "good way to detoxify".


In her chapter on Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, she states that Irritable Bowel Syndrome often goes hand in hand with fibromyalgia. "Detoxification of the body is especially beneficial at the beginning of the treatment. Colon Hydrotherapy cleans out the colon initiating the detoxification process. The first step in any detoxification process is to make sure the toxin has someplace to go that is outside the body."


For Lyme Disease, "the more we can do to reduce our toxic load the more capable our bodies will be to manage chronic infections which are universally present. An excellent way to begin to relieve the toxic body burden is with colon hydrotherapy."


One client with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) showed me the quote from her book on MCS. " Many people with MCS report that colon hydrotherapy is very beneficial to flush the toxic burden from the colon and help rebalance beneficial flora in the gut."


So all roads lead to cleaning, healing, sealing and reseeding the gut! I would be glad to guide you through colon hydrotherapy and a cleansing/rebuilding program of your choice. Be in touch. 520-325-9686

March 30, Sunday, 3:30-5:30PM 


Another wonderful evening exploring the GAPS™ diet and program. We will show powerpoint #6, share our stories and sample some delicious GAPS™ dishes. This diet restricts complex sugars, heals the gut walls and helps to reseed the good microbes.  

RSVP Sheila Shea 520-325-9686

GAPS™ Group & Other Hot Topics! 

So many wonderful things happen each month, I need to keep a notebook so that I can share many of these resources.


Clearly, the GAPS™ Group I hold every month is exciting. People practicing the diet, curious about the diet and friends drop in and share, get an educational and informational PowerPoint on GAPS™ and sample a few items from the diet. Nancy Funke who's been on the diet for 4 years drives up from St David's and brings freshly made goat yogurt. I made Monster Cookies the last time and they quickly disappeared. One woman who has a 10-year old son said that after 2 weeks on the diet he had such positive changes that he wanted to 'eat right'. What next?


Support is one big factor to success in making positive changes.


You are welcome to stop by our next GAPS™ Group

March 30, Sunday from 3:30-5:30PM

$5 Cover.

Gut and Psychology Syndrome is a diet and program developed by Natasha Campbell-McBride, neurologist and nutritionist. The GAPS™ is all about healing the gut wall, reseeding the good microbes and detoxifying.


Oil Swishing and Bone Broths - Other Hot Topics


The bone broths are terrific. I learned about them from Campbell-McBride MD neurologist, nutritionist and author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome. They form the base of her diet program as they help heal the epithelium of the gut wall. John Slattery is a Tucson herbalist with some wonderful natural herbal products. I see him weekly when I go to the Sunday farmer's market at St Phillip's Plaza. I'm giving you the link to his blog on the bone broth plus his herbal formula that he adds to the broth, 22 herbs from east and west!


Someone in the GAPS™ Group brought up Oil Swishing. Then when I was attending the Rau MD seminar, one doctor from the Philippines gave me additional information and support to practice it consistently. At the same time, a client sent me an excellent article on oil swishing. Check out the link. I've been practicing it consistently since March 3, twice a day and with a drop or 2 of oil of clove, cinnamon or tea tree. Remember, the mouth is part of the gastrointestinal system! 


I'm giving a talk! 

Next on the schedule, I am giving a talk to the Natural Health and Wellness Group at Sun City on April 16. They have asked me to speak on "The Detoxification Lifestyle for Better Health." I look forward to sharing all the information I have acquired and presenting it in a visual form. Hydrotherapy, liver flushing and nutrition are high on the list of turning the sailboat around and heading in the right direction.
