Palm Beach County Mangoes


I had a great trip to Florida for my family reunion. I am fortunate that my brothers and sister's-in-law have good eating practices and work out daily. I ate delicious exotic varieties of mangoes my brother Mike grows and that we purchased from a mango grove in Boynton Beach that has been in the same family since 1908. I received a colonic from a therapist in Jupiter and had lunch with another colon therapist in Boca Raton. Life is good and it only gets better when we have good healthy practices.


The Latest on Intestinal Health!

The Last Minute Call for

Colon Hydrotherapy


This week I got a lot of 'last minute' calls. People were hurting and wanted to get in on the spot or later in the day. I am happy to accommodate people when I have an opening same day. However, many times my schedule is full. I sense for many people their intestines are a 'last minute' organ, people wait until the system crashes before they take action.


And what does 'hurting' mean? People make the call when the internal pressure from gas, constipation or both has become unbearable. The gas and constipation distend the intestinal walls - stomach to rectum. The stretch receptors are recording pain. Your quality of life declines rapidly. You are miserable and can't eat or end up overeating.


I want to give you some options for self-care when your gut gets into a bind. Also, these techniques or practices help you prepare for your colon hydrotherapy session.

Self-care, self-love!


Quick Self Help

Enema (2-quart bag or 1.5 liter bucket)

Herbal Laxatives (aloe, senna, cascara, turkey rhubarb, magnesium oxide etc)

Castor oil packs (Palma Christi by Edgar Cayce)

Chi Nei Tsang internal organ massage

Abdominal massage

Fast on raw juices


More Self-Help

Start to notice sooner the signs your gut is going off the rails.

Take action immediately.

Plan a monthly colonic for maintenance if you tend toward constipation or have a challenging gut.

Do an occasional Cleanse to move your health forward and set new habits: GI, Liver Gall Bladder, Kidney, Parasite

Keep yourself preoccupied with positive activities like preparing a new recipe each week.


The whole idea is to take better care of yourself, make an appointment for a colonic before the 'last minute' and develop a strategy to keep yourself on the rails. I can give you coaching on any of the self-help techniques I mentioned.

Life in the GAPS Lane!

Gut & Psychology Syndrome Program


I continued to work with clients and individuals on the GAPS diet. Soon I will be giving my first GAPS™ Group. Also, a client tells her story of how she is using the GAPS diet to heal from serious eczema. I have 2 clients now that are healing beautiful from eczema using the GAPS diet and colon hydrotherapy. Read on.  


 GAPS™ Group Meeting - September 13 - Friday - 5:30 - 7:30 PM

My first GAPS™ Group is meeting on September 13, Friday from 5:30-7:30PM and I'm excited. I have a Facebook GAPS group to which you are welcome to subscribe. The group is for those practicing the diet as well as those that would like to learn more. You are welcome to invite family or friends who express interest. I am charging $5 for the evening. I plan to show a power point on an Introduction to the diet, news from the group on the diet, a recipe explained or a cooking demo and Q&A. If any of you have any GAPS products you want to bring, share or sell, please do so. If anyone would like to bring a GAPS dish or demo one, please let me know.

GAPS™ Program and Eczema (Gut and Psychology Syndrome)

Right now I have 2 clients that have experienced severe eczema and are recovering using the GAPS program and colon hydrotherapy. Eczema can be extremely uncomfortable and the cause resides in the gut - compromised walls and an imbalanced microbial population. And while we are at it, let's contemplate all the other skin conditions that drive us nuts: psoriasis, herpes, hives and dermatitis herpetiformis.


GAPS Diet, Colonics and My Health

I am 37. About 5 years ago, I began experiencing eczema that gradually became worse until it was unbearable.  During that time, I desperately tried different approaches to get rid of it including cortisone creams, natural creams and oils. I eliminated foods and products to determine allergies and intolerances. Nothing was permanent or substantial.


One day a friend of a friend mentioned they were trying the GAPS™ diet to cure their eczema.  I began researching Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride's 'gut and psychology syndrome'. However, I was frustrated trying new things that never helped over the long run. With a deep focus and commitment to truly heal at the core level I went from being a complete vegan for 6 years and vegetarian for 18 years, to making chicken and fish (with the heads on) stock, bone broth, animal organ meats and eggs yolks. I eliminated all grains, soy, beans, sugar, fruit and raw vegetables. Later, I could add homemade fermented vegetables and fermented dairy.


Then I realized I needed to cleanse since my body was rebuilding and eliminating lots of toxins and pathogens. I found Sheila on the internet and was so happy to find she was not only a Colon Hydrotherapist but also a Certified GAPS™ Practitioner. On the initial phone call she said I could also "pick her brain" about GAPS during the session. I felt positive about this fit.


So far I have had three colonic treatments one week apart. I have experienced great relief. I no longer wake up in the middle of the night itching uncontrollably, which is a miracle in itself. The eczema in many areas of my body has completely subsided.


Although I still experience some flare-ups, I feel positive this path of strictly following the GAPS diet and having consistent colonics is the road to complete recovery. My gradual but consistent results along with Sheila's belief in the diet and the colonics, inspire me and keeps me dedicated to my deeper healing and recovery. I am amazed that so much of our health leads back to the gut.

A Recipe for Perfect Health from Helene Leonetti MD


If you would like a nice guideline for your life or something you can post on your bathroom mirror, check out what Helene Leonetti MD prescribes for "Perfect Health."

Dr Leonetti gave our keynote address at the annual conference of the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. I love her spirit and sense of humor. Here goes.


We are about to enter a new millennium that brings hope of new beginnings. As a physician teaching patients how to tap into the doctor within, I have a recipe for perfect health:

  1. Follow Hippocrates' teaching, "let food be your medicine and medicine be your food", by eating pure, whole, organic produce, whole grains and legumes and smaller amounts of meat, dairy and poultry.
  2. Drink � your body's weight in water, i.e. 150 pounds = 75 ounces /day
  3. Work on having 1-3 soft, effortless bowel movements daily (healthy eating, exercise and adequate fiber assure this).
  4. Exercise your beautiful body; walking 15-30 minutes daily and lifting light weights during TV time is optimal.
  5. LOVE WHO YOU ARE - RIGHT NOW. "Stinking thinking" is much more toxic to your health than an unhealthy lifestyle.
  6. Lastly and most importantly, pray or meditate daily. Our spiritual work sets the stage for our day by grounding and keeping us focused on the abundance and prosperity of our universe. Being grateful for all our blessings Before We Receive Them assures our happiness.
