You are so excited to be traveling over the holidays. You get to your destination and find yourself miserable with constipation or other intestinal distresses. It's hard to party, to socialize with friends, to work out and sometimes, even to eat. Have you thought of calling your Colon Therapist and asking for an appointment?
Frequently over the holidays I get calls from intestinally challenged travelers! I am on call over the holidays for you or anyone you know that would like to relieve constipation, gas and bloat from traveling. Sometimes one colonic does the magic; other times we need to do 2-3 colonics to get you on track. You can blend your colonic time in with your other activities and consider it a relaxing spa time for yourself. Email: email@example.com or Call: 520-325-9686.
Body workers have a great opportunity to study with my brother Michael in Scottsdale AZ at the Cortiva Institute beginning in late January and February.
"If you are interested in taking this training, please call the Cortiva Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona at 480.684.1247. Or you can visit my website, www.michaelsheateaching.com for more information on each of the modules. I look forward to seeing you soon.
My father was a veterinarian. The dinner table was often entertained by stories about animals. He cared for both large and small animals so my brother and I got to hear about everything from how you know when you've made friends with an elephant to the perils of clipping a parakeet's beak. I took up the love of animals a little differently. I am both a canine rehabilitation trainer and a certified equine assisted psychotherapist. Both require developing a trusting relationship with these amazing creatures. I have had the privilege of watching each of these animals heal people in astounding ways simply by being the creatures they are. They have taught me patience. In our feeble human attempts to understand what horse and dog are trying to tell us, teach us and give us we are often called to stand . . . very quietly. . . and observe.
So how did I get to this maybe once a day, always bloated place in my life? As I watched Smokey and LadyKate, I learned some things about myself. I already knew I didn't poop when I ate. But I learned that I have certain attitudes about elimination. It's disruptive. I have better things to do. I have more important things to do. It's a chore, something to get over with so I can move on with my day. This attitude translated into not giving me the time I needed and turned elimination into a stressful and rushed experience. Smokey and LadyKate do not care where they are or what's going on around them. Nor do they permit activity to interfere with pooping. Pooping is the priority. They are not stressed when they poop. In fact, they are quite relaxed. Not once have I seen them stop in mid-poop to do something else.Since the above realizations, elimination is now a different experience entirely. I lean back now, much like when I am getting hydrotherapy, close my eyes and visualize the board at the end of Sheila's table and I remember to relax, to breath, to open and, above all, to honor my body. I don't care how long it takes. I don't think about what I am in the middle of doing or what I need to do next. I have cleansing thoughts and use the time to meditate and pray.
Since this new approach, I am happy to report that I am finally poopin' like Smokey and LadyKate!!!
Ond of my dear clients sent me this intestinal analysis of Elvis Presley.
Dr. Daniel Brookoff on Elvis's Autopsy & Struggle With Bowel Disease (available video)
IC activist Dr. Dan Brookoff was one of several doctors selected to review Elvis Presley's medical record and autopsy results to help determine the cause of his death. Elvis did NOT die of a drug overdose. Elvis had a very severe genetic illness of the bowel, Hirschsprung's disease. As he grew older, the disease progressed until at the time of his death he had a very twisted colon, was severely constipated and also struggled with "overflow diarrhea." Out of a fear of having "accidents," he took a lot of the medication Lomotil, one side effect of which is heart arrhythmias. Dr. Brookoff passed away earlier this year.
