Sheila's Blog

Hello All!

What a winter we are having. Tucson sustained 4 nights of freezing temperatures in the teens and twenties. Water pipes were bursting everywhere! Speaking of water pipes, how is your plumbing? Are you happy with your elimination? Are you wanting to clean up your diet and exercise act and get your pipes moving better? The best ways to unfreeze your pipes, meaning your intestines, is to cleanse using colon hydrotherapy. Colon Hydrotherapy improves muscle tone in your gut. Better muscle tone in your gut means that your gut has better energy and more efficient elimination

I want to support all of you to do your very best with diet, exercise and cleansing in order to have optimum health and energy. One of the biggest complaints clients have is fatigue, low energy and brain fog. It does not have to be that way. Throughout the newsletter I hope to show you some great ways to get on track with your diet and your gut! What could be better! 

Enjoy,

Sheila
 


The 7-Day Cleanse by Arise and Shine

One of my favorite products I carry at the office is the 7-Day Cleanse by Arise & Shine. What makes this cleanse so manageable? It's only 7 days. Everything comes in convenient packets. You get to eat 3 meals a day and snacks!

What do you get with the 7-Day Cleanse? Bonanza. You get the shaker and lid for the 2 daily psyllium and bentonite shakes. You get 2 herbal formulas: one that dissolves waste from the gut walls and the other that builds your organs. You also get your packets of probiotic; the good bacteria that you want to populate your gut! You are cleansing and rebuilding yourself at the same time. You are modifying your behavior and setting up better self-healing habits. The other bonanza is that you feel better physically and mentally after the cleanse.

I advise ideally that you take 3 colonics during the 7-Day Cleanse, one before, during and after. It's important throughout to keep your bowels moving so that you do not reabsorb any toxins that are leaving your body. Putting in the good herbs and nutrients and receiving the colonics allows your nervous system to relax and calm down. That's a big benefit, too, in our high stress era!

The cost of a series of 3 is $216: the cost of the 7-Day is $80. Call me at 520-325-9686 or email me if this is something you would like to do for yourself and receive some coaching from me.

A Special Internet Correspondent Shares His Colonic Story Spina Bifida,
    Tethered Cord Syndrome and Colon Hydrotherapy

     I have been corresponding with William, an accomplished musician, for many years. He wrote this wonderful
     testimonial about his colon hydrotherapy experience.

"I was born in 1951 with an active progressive medical condition known as Spina Bifida (Lipomyleomeningecele). As there was little empirical research on SB at that time, the actual diagnosis for this congenital neurological condition was not made until I was 10.

Early manifestations for the disorder for me were orthopedic and gastro-intestinal in nature.

I enjoyed a relatively normal childhood and early adult years. By 1976, I had undergone seven surgical procedures on my right foot to correct cavus pedis, similar in nature to clubfoot.

Also that year, it was necessary for me to go on a program called Clean Intermittent Catherization or CIC, as my (neurogenic) bladder would no longer empty on its own.

By 1997, I was experiencing great difficulties with ambulation and sought out a re-evaluation by a pediatric neurosurgeon at a local children's hospital. This physician and hospital were on the cutting edge for research into the diagnosis and treatment of Spina Bifida that had now become more widely understood by the medical community at large.

It was discovered that I had Tethered Cord Syndrome, secondary to my SB, and that surgery was required immediately if I were to continue to be able to walk without assistive devices like crutches or a wheelchair.

The surgical procedure was successful in halting the progression of the damage to my neurological profile. However, my bowels did stop functioning immediately as a result of the surgery.

The physicians and staff at the hospital assured me that this would be temporary. Within two months I was still not experiencing regular unassisted BM's so I scheduled my first appointment with a registered (IACT) colon hydrotherapist.

The Colon Hydrotherapist placed me on a regimen of home cleansings, diet modification and saw me for regularly scheduled monthly appointments for seven years. In December of 2005, my bowel function was restored. Since then, I have been able to have regular BM's without the need for any home cleanings.

I am enjoying life today thanks to IACT and to the Colon Hydrotherapist who helped me get back on track."

What Are The Biofilms? 

I was introduced to the concept of 'biofilm' when I was studying the works and words of Elaine Gottschall, author of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, a treatise on how sugar effects the gut wall. She mentioned the existence of a biofilm on the gut wall that had a deleterious effect on our health. Dr Eliaz provides more info for us.
 
"The existence of biofilms is an important consideration in the treatment of infections and is speculated to be one of the reasons that pathogenic organisms can be so difficult to eradicate. Antimicrobial pharmaceuticals or botanicals most often fail to penetrate into the biofilm matrix hence many organisms are able to survive treatment. Biofilm matrixes can colonize in our intestinal system and many of us live with them unknowingly."
 
Chronic Fluoride Poisoning mimics Lyme (OT)

Brother Mike sent this post from a yahoo group. We might as well know what is poisoning us and how it does so.

According to Geoffrey Nochimson, MD, Consulting Staff, Department of Emergency Medicine, Sentara Careplex Hospital, "Ingested fluoride initially acts locally on the intestinal mucosa. It can form hydrofluoric acid in the stomach, which leads to GI irritation or corrosive effects. Following ingestion, the GI tract is the earliest and most commonly affected organ system." 4 If eaten in enough quantity, it can eat through the stomach lining. According to the Minnesota Poison Control System, "HydroFluoric Acid is a particularly dangerous acid because of its unique ability among acids to penetrate tissue." They go on to say that this can cause soft tissue damage, bone erosion, and electrolyte abnormalities. It leaches calcium and magnesium from the body creating deficiency, and is "directly toxic to a number of cellular enzymes and metabolic processes." 5...
