Just Ask Madison!

I would like to share an experience that I found both funny and very encouraging.

When I first met Madison she was 10 years old.  She is a very intelligent and caring child, truly a delight to know.  She came to my office because she suffered from constant abdominal pain, constipation, (the last time she had a bowel movement was a week prior), as well as she was always tired.  Being always tired at 10 years old is definitely not fair!  I explained the importance of eating good healthy fiber from food to her and her mother, i.e. fruits, vegetables and whole grains as well as drinking water regularly. After the second colonic her bowels were eliminating daily but it was evident that we were not quite finished since she still had plenty of gas, a sign of old putrefied waste.  A few more colonics and she were feeling excellent, both with her abdomen and her energy.  It was wonderful to watch her already sparkling personality really come alive!  Typically, after we reach this point I recommend for a future follow-up colonic since it is not uncommon for the colon to try to go back to old bad habits and in this way the colonic will help encourage healthy peristalsis to continue.  She was scheduled for a 2-month follow-up.  During this two month time period her mother, Tracy, decided to see me.  She had suffered for years with IBS, (irritable bowel syndrome).  We had made some good progress with Tracy during this time and she had considerable relief.  

For quite awhile Madison had planned a weeklong trip across country with her girls scout troop.  Her mother was one of the chaperones.  One can only imagine the kinds of food that would be eaten on such a trip.  As coincidence would have it though, Madison’s two-month follow-up colonic with me was just two days after they returned.  As Madison and her mother walked in my office I heard quite a bit of commotion.  Tracy was begging her daughter for her appointment.  Madison’s firm reply was, “No way mom, I’m keeping my appointment, you make your own.”  And so Madison had her colonic. 

Many people would think that having a colonic would be horrible, obnoxious, embarrassing, and probably many other things.  Well I think this story dispels all of that.  Just ask Madison!

Colon Therapy...Our Day Will Come!

In the nearly 24 years I have been a colon therapist I have watched my profession treated positively and negatively off and on. I am always glad to respond to clients and potential clients regarding negative feedback they have heard.  The negative ideas are easy to explain away because they have no basis.  If a person wanted to learn about jet engines would they go to a english teacher to learn?  Of course not!  So to learn about what colon therapists do, one needs to go to a colon therapist to learn.  A phone call can dispel any misconceptions and allay any fears.  It is encouraging that many physicians are not as opposed as they once were towards colon therapy.  Hopefully they will continue to learn the facts behind what we accomplish.  It is also encouraging that four hospitals in the US are now implementing colon therapy prior to performing colonoscopies.  Here is a YouTube video showing one of these hospitals. 

Yet we have a long way to go.  Colon therapy is not given the recognition it deserves.  Some claim that there is no documental proof.  I have often said I wish they would knock at my door and ask about what colon therapy has done for the people I have helped.  Many of my clients have told me of their own accord that they want to share their story of renewed health to back up the benefits of colon therapy.  Well, I am happy to announce that that day may soon come.  Recently I was contacted by a film producer, Julie Tyle, about a film she is producing for the very reason I have outlined in this blog.  Hurray Julie!!  She has been compiling accounts of clients as well as interviewing physicians from all over the country for the last 18 months.  These include GI specialists at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere.  She has also interviewed doctors from other fields including a holistic dentist that has proof of the validity of colon therapy as well as renowned scientists.  And yes....she interviewed me and two of my clients, one an 11 year old boy and his mother.  I will tell his story in a future blog to come soon.  I can’t thank Julie Tyler enough for the tireless hours she has put into this much needed endeavor. The film will take many more months to put together cohesively.  We will wait patiently for that day when the public can get the whole story as it deserves!  You can learn more about the film at:  For more details click on Newsletters on the top of the page.
